1  Re: THE GREAT SKULL SWAP in The Swap Gallery by Sheila on: March 11, 2008 11:24:00 AM
I got the most AMAZING package, I couldn't be happier. So here's photos, it should be illegal for me to own a camera.

left to right: tampon case, really cute. Pouch at the top, 2 pins and earrings which I'm surprised my mom hasn't stolen.

Also, this HUUUUGE tote bag, it's insanely awesome. I LOVE IT. I couldn't get a good photo of the whole thing, but here's a close up the killer fabric she used.

I thought I took a bunch of photos, I guess not O_O.

I've got permission to post photos, yay.
Okay, I haven't put pictures up of what I sent because I took photos on my parents camera. Their camera is different from mine. I was trying to stick the plug in the wrong hole...  Grin

But it's figure out and so here.
In this photo you can see a pillow with skully print that I gave shiny eyes too. Plus the back is this relaly amazing plush fabric. Then there is a pair of armwarmers with detachable skully pins. They're made of glittery mohair and they're very comfy. Then there is a scarf in the middle. It has a huge pocket on each end, they're really deep, came up to my wrists. Then there is a little modified altoid tin, it's pretty cute. A little pouch with a skully pin. A pair of beaded skull earrings. A beaded skull keychain. And another trinket box with plush red fabric on the inside. The reason there's two boxes is because I found an altoid tin and it was really last minute that I made that.

Box guts. The altoid tin is lined with black and turqoise felt and has a border of seed beads along the inside.

Happy sheets said she prefers bright colors and sugar skulls so I made everything as bright and glittery as physically possible (for me).

That was my hair as of August '05, I donated just over a foot to LoL and about 6-7 inches has grown back since.

Because it's so thick, I cant really style it in any way and when I leave it down I have to brush it a lot, otherwise things could get messy.

4  Re: Corset-style T-shirt dress w/ uber-ruffly skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Sheila on: October 02, 2004 01:43:24 PM
I got inspired by looking at Elegant Gothic Lolita sites one day and went out to buy an XL men's t-shirt, 3 yards of black t-shirt fabric (I was going to buy t-shirts to make the skirts instead but the fabric was $2/yard!), 3 yards of lace, grommets, and 5 metres of ribbon. This is what I came up with (sorry about the bad quality; I thought that I didn't need flash when I took the photos but it turns out that I did, so I had to play around in Photoshop to lighten them up):

On me:

My bed wearing it:

Oh yeah, and I used a removable bra strap for the strap.   Smiley

I freaking LOVE that dress. It's so beautiful, I really wish I could make something like that. I wouldn't have the legs to wear it anyway, it looks like it comes up kinda a short.

Great tutorial!  After making two of these with seed beads about a year ago, I got some major inspiration while at a local craftstore today:

Voila, my glow-in-the-dark pony bead mandala, shown at about actual size (on my computer at least).  I'm not sure what to do with it though.  Any ideas?
maybe you could find backing of some sort for it and use it as a belt buckle? :/

My latest finished trinket.

I live in Aus and I sell these beaded hair jewels at the markets for $3 a set and the girls just love and snatch em straight up and mum doesn't really miss the $3.
I've put the instructions in the pics below
(hope the pics work)

oh my gosh, those are incredibly cute. I need to make a bunch, I think I have everything I need. Yay, now my hair won't look so blahhhh.  Smiley
