1  Re: I <3 Gibbous Altered Fashions sew-along! in Clothing Sewalongs by Aveykin on: August 15, 2010 10:33:21 PM
So I have my makeup exam tomorrow (finally) and then I can hopefully work on these more, but finally, pictures of what I've been tinkering with.

This is the top/bodice of what will be a two piece dress, the bottom is going to be in the same fiery colour scheme, but look abit like feathers, really I'm trying to figure out how to do all the embroidery I want without it getting too stiff.

close up

Now this one right now is looking very symmetrical and not very chaotic, which is normally more my schtick. The bottom edge of the dress will be shorter at the front and have a ton of ruffles XD Honestly not sure where I'm going with this after that. I'm liking the gypsy-ish colours though.

I don't have a dressform so I rigged something up with duct tape. It's kinda strange how looking at your figure when it's not on you can make you appreciate it more.

Ok picture time!!

Octopus bag! (and in purple <3<3)

This little guy opened up at the bottom and had a neat little stash inside! I'm debating filling him up with nice smelling things and hanging him in the room XD

Some of the things that were inside, from the vancouver aquarium, which I love.

Also, this guy! Probably my favourite thing all told, the swirlyness and the blue just floored me.

Then there was this awesome squid, who's also a magnet! Trying to figure out where I can put him so his eyes get the best effect.

Plus, a funky vinyl decal that may have to wait to go on my eventual vespa XD

Extras! Stickers, post cards, band aids (I love crazy ones), a fish pin, lil squid eraser, some beads and shiny bits, two more magnets, martini squids, clips, post cards, nailbrush (I needed one, how'd you know?) and a whack of candy...the only thing left when I got home today were the pixi sticks, which now are gone as well.

Such an awesome package!  Thank you so much Suereal!!!!

I have some pictures I took before I sent of the skirt, but it looks way nicer on Karasu! <3

I'll upload them here if I can figure out what directory I put them in :s

found some!
this is the front top of the skirt:

and this is the....right side I believe.

4  Cherry Blossom reconstruct in Shoes: Completed Projects by Aveykin on: June 25, 2010 10:44:46 PM
Found these terrible looking old shoes in my closet that I must have worn back in highschool to dances and whatnot, and stripped off all this gunky nasty flocking stuff to repaint em.
Cut off all the straps and put on some new ones, so now they wrap up around the leg.  Also re-did the soles so they fit my high arches with nice fleece-y comfort ^^

Pictures! I'll try and take better ones, but my camera is pretty much on it's last legs. It refuses to focus :/ Nor does my room have good lighting.

terribly dark bleh

5  Phoenix Mask in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Aveykin on: June 24, 2010 09:40:05 PM
I wanted to do a piece that wasn't a figurine, and had been debating doing a mask of some sort. Originally I was thinking a unicorn mask would be awesome, but the logistics of making a horn that would somehow sit nicely entirely out of polymer clay......I decided to pass on that for now.

So instead I have for you the phoenix mask! The entire piece is done with polymer clay, just given a light brush of brown and bronze acrylic paint to add some depth and sealed.  The back strap is ribbon wrapped wire.

More Pictures:

I think if I were to do something like this again I would have put wire reinforcements on the feathers, when I was attaching them with TLS they were just flopping all over in the oven. Must have burnt myself six times.

awesome treeness! and in my favourite colours. My mum is jealous.

front view :3 where you can see all the wee little leaves floating about.

and now I'm going to go have a nap since I've been up since 5am and for some crazy reason did a 3km run this morning Tongue

7  Magazine Wall Scroll: World Tree in CHALLENGE 39 ENTRIES by Aveykin on: June 05, 2009 11:42:13 PM
Welp, when I finally rushed home to get these pictures uploaded and saw the site coming up with an error message I nearly had a heart attack, but it's working so phew!

This is my first challenge entry, and actually, the first pictures I've ever posted lol.  I made a resolution to stop being such a cronic lurkey turkey.

The World Tree, as done with Sears Catalogues.  ((I also found a mattress topper I want!))

Filling in the blanks.

The whole thing, everything but the original piece of paper is done out of catalogue, including the rods at the top and bottom. I realised I am definately colour blind when tired.

the top

the bottom with the world in all it's misshapen glory.

rollin' it up to take it to it's new home.

Ready for travel!

The scroll is going to be hung up in my mums cubicle at work, which should be nice because she actually works for the environmental faculty at one of my local universities Smiley

Was really fun to get all collagey with the colours, it's something I wish I had an excuse to do more often.
