1  CRISTOBAL IS HERE!!! (well technically, Cristobal has always been here...) in Halloween Costumes by river_horse on: November 01, 2009 09:47:38 AM
So the idea for this costume has been forming for the last few months, starting when my friends and I were saying how the name "Cristobal" sounds like "Crystal Ball". From then on I have become this ridiculous character, Cristobal. I wore the costume to school on Friday, which was the first time Cristobal made a public appearance, hehe. I didn't even think of posting it on here, but since i had already made this costume...
Before the pictures, a little background on Cristobal:
Cristobal talks in a Jamaican accent and is also Italian who says random words like "tortellini" and "lasagna" while waving her arms mysteriously . She is an all-knowing psychic who gives nonsense predictions by looking into her crystal ball to see the future. When Cristobal predicts the future, scary organ music and thunder plays and her cape blows furiously (idealistically) , but otherwise happy steel drum music plays.
uummmm, i think that's all you need to know about Cristobal...

The turban a friend helped me make, it's basically just a big pillow-hat wrapped with a big green tablecloth and then a big felt eye pinned on the front.
it was SO heavy.

I kept the crystal ball in my hand-made sling (which you can kinda see) cause a few weeks ago i got bit by a snake and still have to wear a sling (ugh), so whenever i made a prediction I would mysteriously take my crystal ball out from the depths of my cape, haha.

I made the cape, doesn't really need explaining, and then glued glitter on to say Cristobal with a huge eye, of course. I had to coat the glued glitter with watery glue because the glitter was coming off all over my house, but now it stays Smiley

Here is the whole costume, you can't really see the pants, but I made those too from here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=254336.0

Hope you enjoyed!

2  Flowers Galore!!! in CHALLENGE 40 ENTRIES by river_horse on: July 05, 2009 09:36:58 PM
hey everyone!
for this challenge i made a big reproduction of a water lily photo that i had taken. i cut out tiny flowers out of magazines and divided a canvas into about 500 squares and then glued the cut-out flowers to the canvas to form a pixelated version of the original photo. it took me forever to find and cut out all the magazine flowers, but i'm happy with the end result. It's kinda hard to see the picture as a whole since it's close up, sorry.

shows the color better:


This is a bad picture, but it shows the flower better since it's far away:

original photo:

thanks so much looking!

3  legwarmers! in Knitting: Completed Projects by river_horse on: December 18, 2008 03:45:26 PM
wow, i haven't posted anything on here in awhile. . .
a few weeks ago, a friend asked me to make her legwarmers for her birthday so after looking around for legwarmer patterns i finally decided on this one after seeing so many people on here make them. it was super easy to follow and they turned out great. i gave them to her on Tuesday and she loved them.
here's the pattern link:
i made them a teensy bit longer than the pattern said.

thanks so much for looking Smiley
happy holidays!

4  summery flower dress!!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by river_horse on: July 15, 2008 04:05:30 PM
hello again,
this is a summery dress made of green and brown fabric. the waist is shirred but i messed up and had to add buttons in order to be able to get it on. i didn't use a pattern, just shirred it and took in the bust to fit. umm, i guess there's nothing else to say.




thank you so so much for looking! feedback appreciated Smiley
have a fantastic day!

hi everyone,
here is a dress i made from IKEA fabric back in April. It was originally for my 8th grade promotion in May, but i never got around to finishing it by then, oh well. it is made from this tutorial:
it's not hemmed yet and i'll probably make the straps skinnier.

front, the zipper is on the side:

back (it's not full and flowy like the front):

front detail, it's made up of three panels:

thanks for looking, comments/criticism welcome.

have a great day Smiley

7  History class poster project in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by river_horse on: May 26, 2008 10:48:09 AM
hi everyone!
in history class we had to pick a poster from the 1960s or 1970s and basically copy it using paint, markers, pencils or whatever. so we had to partner up and me and my partner could not decide on what poster we wanted to do. so we did four. The Beatles, Mc5, The Who, and The Grateful Dead. i did The Beatles and Grateful dead. my partner did The Who and Mc5. after everyone's posters were done our class voted and ours won! so that was good.
sorry for all this blabbering:

the poster(we used markers and acrylic paint):

actual Beatles poster:

Actual Mc5 poster:

Actual Who poster:

actual Grateful Dead poster:

thanks for looking!
