1  Radish mouses in Recipes and Cooking Tips by Marinka on: September 20, 2011 01:06:49 PM
Most childrens don't like radish but maybe they will eat it when it look like this:

(the photo is made one day after I made them. Some of the mouse look like they have a black eye so maybe it better to eat them on the same day you make them)

Radish, peppercorns, cucumber, (dutch) cheese

-Get the green stuff off the radish (don't cut the root of)
-Make 4 cuts to make the top of the radish pointed
-Make smal hols with a skewer (or someting else) for the eyes
-Place small peppercorns in the hols
-Make small cuts for the ears
-Take a small slice of the bottem of the mouse (so it can't roll anymore)
-Cut the small slice in two en place them in the cuts for the ears
-Put the mouse together with a piece of cheese and a small flag on a slice of cucumber

I've found some tutorials on Youtube for doll makeup and I've tried some (for next time I'll wear the dress):

It's not perfect jet and actually I need some false eyelashes and really pink lipstick. What do you think?

3  Pretty Pink Plastic Princess in CHALLENGE 64 ENTRIES by Marinka on: July 02, 2011 05:10:51 AM
This weekend my city turns pink and yesterday I have joined a Friday Night Skate with the theme pink. When I was younger I never had a princess dress so I know what I wanted to make.

I combined plastic with 'normal' fabrics so I look like a toy princess, but larger. I also intergrated some scrapbook stuff (the diamants and harts on the skirt and shirt). It was quite heavy but I had had a lot of fun with waving (like a princess of course) to everybody who was watching us.


Even my makeup had some scrapbook stuff:

And on my skates ready to start (the loose covers at my skates also match with the dress, but that's hard to see on the photo):

In action:

All garments
Under skirt and shirt:

Upper skirt, long granny underwear and waist belt :

6  Geisha costume in Costumes: Completed Projects by Marinka on: March 20, 2011 12:24:16 PM
I've made a Japanese Geisha costume for a friend.

I've made a Kimono, a Obi (and a Obi Makura and Jiime) and a under skirt (instead of a traditional Naga Juban)
She bought a wig, socks, sandals, a bag and a fan.

The Obi (ca 4 meters long):

The Kimono has very wide sleeves

She looks very Japanese, don't you think?

9  Gift calendar in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Marinka on: May 26, 2010 12:30:03 PM
A friend of mine has back problems and therefore she has to lie down all day. That seemed rather boring to me, so I created a calendar which contains
each day a small gift. I've send it to her without a sender on it, the last day contains pic of me so she didn't know who send it to her til she openend the last day.

Behind every day is a 6 x 5 x 5 cm (about 2.5 x 2 x 2 in) space for a small gift. The total box is 50 x 30 x 5 cm (about 20 x 12 x 2 in)

(I'm Dutch so the months are in Dutch. Mei means May.)

Every day contains a instruction on a note, for example this one. (It's puzzle day! Make them all complete)

And at after the last day I've got this picture back:
