These are so cute  Smiley  I love you color choice as well.  I'm glad my "tutorial" of sorts was useful  Grin
92  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: Star Wars Custom Logo Print Coin Purses and Wallets on: September 18, 2012 05:14:44 PM
Thanks :-D  I designed the fabric to blend into the other styles of logos out there but still have enough geeky symbols on it, that a true fan would notice.  I have two purses I love, but they scream out Star Wars and have photos from the movies and art on them.  They're great, but when I need something a little subdued, there just wasn't anything - so I made it!
The coin purse shape was completely on the fly.  I knew it had to have a zipper, because I hate loose change rolling around my purse that fell out of my wallet.  That meant it had to open wider too, so it had to zip 3/4 way around.  I've ordered a cotton sateen fat quarter in brown/gold (like Louis Vuitton) to play with because I had a request for that color scheme.  I think I may make another purse from it with a long skinny strap for my Etsy shop.  I'm also working on other sci-fi theme ideas.  I don't want to order fabric until I see how well these do though.

A while back I had posted about my Purse I'd made from custom fabric I designed https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=404611.0 .  Since I had swatches and extra fabric laying around, I decided to make a few coin purses and clutch wallets for my tiny Etsy shop.  I need another source of income to pay for my costuming habit lol.  The Coin Purse pattern was drafted by me as I went.  It started out as a 4"x4" square with the top corners rounded off.  The zipper opens about 6", going 3/4 way around the purse to allow easy removal/addition of loose change or odds and ends.  There is a little loop for keys or what ever you want.  It coordinates really well with my purse and my own wallet.  I'm so tempted to keep one for myself, but I only had fabric for two.  Surprisingly, the little coin purses took about as long to make as the wallets because of the rounded corners with the zipper.

Be careful with that pattern, it takes a LOT of tweaking.  I made one from this and I had to use the size 14 dress when I was actually a 6.  I also had to make the arms larger around and longer as well as the hem line.  If you go that route, mock it up first in similar fabric or you risk ruining your good stuff.  I've been sewing for about 20 years and that pattern was confusing me at times, certain things are not lined up properly or marked to be lined up at all.  Take your time with it, as it can produce a great costume when done right.

96  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Doctor Who Glitter Flats on: August 15, 2012 08:21:44 PM
So I made another pair of glitter flats, this time with a Doctor Who theme to them.  

Plain Flats
Mod Podge
Acrylic Sealer Spray
Blue Glitter
Black Glitter
Star Glitter
Silver Sharpie

I took plain black flats (from Payless) and prepped the surface.  I then took mod podge and covered the front half of the shoes and sprinkled on some fine blue glitter and let it dry.  Afterwards I coated the back half of the shoes and blended in strokes of glue to the blue glittered part.  I took the loose star glitter and scattered some in, I then covered it with the black fine glitter and tapped off the excess.  When it was done, it looked like the TARDIS whizzing through space.  Once these were completely dried, they got a few top coats of acrylic sealer.  I finished them with "BAD WOLF" on one shoe and "Tick tock goes the clock..." on the other using a silver sharpie.  They are a hint of geek, if you know what you are looking at, without screaming it out loud.

I have a thing for skull and cross bones, this is pretty cool!  It would really rock in a glow in the dark polish for the designs.

Thanks, I really like texture and interest in my nail colors.  I did a neon orange earlier this week with a black shatter over it.  The neon alone made me feel like I could direct planes in at the airport LOL  The shatter toned it down a bit but it was still fun looking for summer.  Yesterday I had another glitter sandwich in a medium blue.  I tend to do my nails every few days LOL  I'm leaving them blank this weekend to breathe for a bit though before I do something funky for Independence Day with them.  I'll be sure to post it here :-)
99  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Coney Island Mermaid Costume on: June 24, 2012 11:03:59 AM
Yesterday was Coney Island's Annual "Mermaid Parade" (http://www.coneyisland.com/mermaid.shtml).  This is my 2nd year going and dressing up.  My costume was actually totally last minute as the original plan didn't work out at all.  If I'd have had more time, it would have come out better in the skirt.  I may even go back to it and add more to the "fin" area as it was't as full as I wanted.  The inspiration is Star Wars Slave Leia meets Flapper became mermaid.

I made the fascinator for under $10.  I sprayed on some gold glitter (which I'm still finding on my person today) and hot glued on a strong hair clip to the back.  I LOVE this thing and would love to wear it every day if I could.


"tail" is a tight pencil skirt with poly organza ruffles for the fins in colors to match the feathers on the fascinator.  The top was made using a cheap $3 bra and covering it with the same skirt fabric and using some gold trim I had in my stash.  The Sequin fringe trim was fun as it swooshed around when spinning or dancing.

Total costume cost = $25!

I just had a photoshoot in Central Park this past weekend with a good friend (and excellent photographer) at the Alice in Wonderland Statue :-)  It was a ton of fun and we got some fun shots.  http://www.ng-master.com/cm/thumbnails.php?album=855
