71  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Gray wool coat on: July 14, 2007 11:36:14 AM
*hopes that the pictures actually work*

This is a coat I made out of some wool fabric I got for quite cheap at Mill end. It looks a lot better in person but unfortunately I don't have better pictures then this right now.

It was intended to be a reproduction of Violet Baudelaire's coat in a Series of Unfortunate Events, but obviously I got a lot of things wrong so I sort of gave up. Its a very modified Butterick 3836; I changed the buttons, length, added pockets, made the coat flair out more, decreased the poofyness of the sleeves, changed the collar, made the sleeves from one piece instead of two, etc.

After having worn it all last winter I can say there are things I would like to change and things I'm not too happy about, but considering it was the first coat I've made and that I altered the pattern so much I think I did a good job
 excuse how out of it I look


back seams

I now have shinier metal buttons
72  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Wicked Witch of the West Makeup! on: July 11, 2007 11:34:52 AM
   I just thought this might amuse someone Smiley

I played the wicked witch in the Wizard of Oz my senior year and more or less figured out the stage makeup by myself. if you know how to shade its not too hard to do... I enjoyed being green lol.

in the spirit of the many Harry Potter postings I've been seeing, I'll post my drawing that turned into teenaged-ish Snape.

Got to love Emo hair.

75  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / a strange bridesmaid dress... (now with picture!) on: July 10, 2007 02:55:21 PM
My brother had a civil war-themed reception to his traditional wedding (don't ask) and a couple of us made dresses that would fit with the theme.
   I figured I'd just make a slightly fancy work dress... didn't want to be bothered with a terribly fancy historical dress.

here is a headless picture of me in it.

The complete underpinnings, sorry about the blurryness

here's my post about the corset

  anyways, here's an in-progress picture: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/49204211/

those pleats were hell O.o and i definitely need to add more darts to the bodice, but overall I'm pretty happy with it.
76  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / A robot hand in scratchboard on: July 10, 2007 02:25:06 PM
I made a robot hand in scratch board, holding a flower. "Technology imitates life" or something like that...

   Unfortunately I have no good pictures of this at my disposal *grumbles about camera* but they do give you a good idea.
this one shows off my "lovely" framing job:  http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/53007971/
here's a closeup: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/53075358/
and here is the original drawing: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/30462421/

thanks for looking!
77  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Umbrella holder/ big blue jar on: July 08, 2007 07:11:20 PM
   There was an assignment for the advanced clay people who felt they could undertake a massive hand-built pot...
   Frankly I'm disappointed with how the texture and glaze turned out but I am happy that I built it as tall as the kiln would allow Cheesy
made of low-fire clay.
  This became a wedding shower present for my brother... he keeps his rifle in it even though it's an umbrella stand...


78  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / labyrinth inspired sculpture... on: July 08, 2007 06:33:25 PM
  I made a sculpture inspired by the scene in Labyrinth where Jareth sings "within you".... take a look!

Took about three weeks in my clay class and involved a far more detailed glaze job then i normally bother with. about 12 inches wide and 7 inches tall. Let me know what you think!
