1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Trying to find a pattern for a bridesmaids dress on: October 29, 2012 02:43:13 PM
My brother and his girlfriend are finally talking wedding plans. However, the dress she really likes for her bridesmaids a.) is ridiculously expensive and b.) doesn't come in either of her wedding colors. So, being the one in the bridal party that knows how to sew, I'm trying to see if I can find a way to make them instead. The dress she wants can be found here.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Looking for Suggestions on: September 17, 2012 09:36:06 PM
I work for an anime convention that just happened this past weekend.  Throughout this last year, I've done a lot of advertising via flyers all over both the city I live in and every convention I've been to.  Now that the show has passed for this year, I'm looking for something thrifty to do with the thousand or so flyers I have leftover.  They are postcard size and weight, printed on both sides, and have a glossy finish.  I've thought of making custom cards and things to send to my friends in other cities, but there are just too many for that idea to cover them all.

Thank you!
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Seeking a Sweater Dress Pattern on: September 12, 2012 01:22:55 PM
I've been crocheting for a long time, but I always seem to have trouble finding patterns that I really like.  I would currently love to make myself a cowl-necked sweater dress for the upcoming holiday season, but, of course, there aren't any patterns that I can find.  Would anyone happen to know where I can find a decent sweater dress pattern?  I'm nervous about the idea of trying to draft it myself, but I will if I must. 
4  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Poison Ivy Pumps (pic obese) on: June 28, 2010 04:07:50 PM
I decided to try my hand at decopauging shoes with comic book pages.  My ultimate goal is to one day to this to a pair of knee high boots with either Green Arrow or Deadpool comics, but for a first try I used some cheap shoes I picked up on sale at Wal-Mart and Batman comics that featured Poison Ivy from the clearance comics bin at Half Price Books.  All in all, I think they turned out pretty well.

Both shoes, newly finished, on top of my laptop.  Ignore the glitter.  It was for another project.  XD

Ivy coming on to Robin, featured on the left shoe's toe.

Outside of the left shoe.  The text says "Far From the Tree", which was the name of one of the issues I used.

Inside of the left shoe.

Toe of the right shoe.  I'm particularly proud of the detailed cut out of Ivy I used here.

Detail of Batman holding Ivy on the right heel.

Outside of right shoe.  This is probably the only part that has a lot of consecutive panels on it.
5  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / A Few Costumes of Years Past on: April 21, 2010 05:51:15 PM
So, this is my first post of my work to Craftster despite having lurked here for well over a year.   Lips sealed  I'm twitchy and a little shy, what can I say?  LOL.  I'm almost constantly making things, but I never remember to take pictures in the process, etc. and then I don't want to post just the finished product.  Well, I'm finally buckling down to do it by showing off three of the costumes I've made.  It's taking a lot to ignore how bad they are because I've really improved on my sewing skills.  XD

Slymenstra Hymen from GWAR

I made this for Halloween 2007.  It's the chick that used to be part of the shock rock band GWAR.  The entire thing is made from materials I got at Wal-Mart and threw together in less than 6 hours.  The boots were already a part of my closet.  The armor is entirely made of white posterboard which I cut, folded, stapled, and then spraypainted to make look like metal.  It's built on a plain black bra.

Zatanna Zatara of DC Comics

Zatanna is probably one of my favorite comic book characters.  Since this picture was taken in August of 2008 this costume has gone through several changes.  The jacket is now scrapped, the sleeves of the tuxedo shirt have been taken up, and I'm in the market for a new top hat as the old one is about to cave in on itself.  Hopefully by Origins Game Fair this June, I'll have a yellow cummerbund to replace the vest as well.  The shoes aren't visible, but I wear knee-high black vinyl boot spats over black heels.

Gijinka Lickitung of Pokemon

Lickitung is one of my favorite Pokemon (though I can't figure out why since it kinda sucks in battle).  I made this in 2008 as well.  It's all jersey fabric and an altered Simplicity pattern whose number is lost to the ages.  The part I love most about this is the visor, which the tongue is actually attached to.  Smiley  The gentlemen on either side of me are from the Pokemon fan-band Ultraball.

Thanks for looking!  Hopefully I can get some more recent works up soon.  Smiley
