Absolutely stunning, creations like these make me wish I was in fashion design. The dedication, 4+ hours hand sewing!, but it came out perfect, I'd love to see some pics from the ball when you go.

Hey Nitro!

I absolutely love this! I only wish that our costumer at school had the time to make something like this for our play this year.  Wink

thanks again everyone!!

ive been trying to figure out how long i spent on this.... the class was three weeks long, three hours aday(on the record) so thats  uhhh(artsy kid math time!!)(read: bad at math)

15days...uhh three hours(9-12) every day so thats 15x3 which equals ummm 45? thats not right is it...ummmmm whatever... Huh

and now factoring in that i went back to the shop around 1 everyday after lunch....if i ate lunch( when i get into it i forget to eat sometimes) till about 5 530 or 6 then there was one day where i wasnt in class due to a theater festival,one of the days before that i really didnt work on it in class due to loading costumes onto the truck...then there were the days where i was in the shop till 9 or 930.... and i think my brain just melted.... Huh i dont get on well with math....lets just say...it was a lot of hours!!! that works right? heh

Absolutely gorgeous. I have the same batman watch. Smiley

i love my batman watch!!!!!! ive been trying to figure out what to do with the other cover thingers seeing as i only wear the  bat symbol... and not to mention i have two other ones floating around that met unfortunate ends....
