31  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Steampunk Lolita on: June 25, 2011 12:51:29 PM
Edit: Here's a new version of the outfit - my sister wanted a similar one for a convention and so I made a new skirt and lent her some of my lolita wardrobe. I combined my own skirt with a cage hoop skirt and love how it looks ^^


I made this outfit for a lolita meetup... it's always the same: we plan a meetup, I spend some time thinking about what to wear and decide to make something new xD

I made the skirt, suspenders, fascinator and jewelry.
The fabric and lace is hand-dyed with coffee and black tea... messy, but fun  Grin

The fascinator is a perfect example for quick and dirty work... I made this yesterday night after realizing I didn't have a matching headdress  Grin

The suspenders:

You can see the necklace charm I made for this outfit here.
32  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Large Steampunk Jewelry on: June 23, 2011 01:52:01 PM
This is probably not the most creative title, but it does describe the project best  Grin

Usually I make jewelry that's something between small and tiny, but this time I felt like trying something new. The settings I used as bases for these pieces measure 6cm in diameter... doesn't sound too big, but it is  Grin

For the first piece I used scraps of vintage lace, a polymer clay heart and some metal findings. The second one was made in my favorite way: I gathered all the findings that could possible match the style and simply glued anything to the setting that wouldn't fight back. Easy *lol*

Here you can see the size better:

I took those photos before I attached a necklace to the heart one, but I couldn't wait xD I will probably wear it with a Steampunk Lolita coord this Saturday, I can't wait ^^
33  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Polymer Clay Cabochon Madness on: June 16, 2011 05:47:05 AM
I've made jewelry with polymer clay cabochons before, so this is not exactly new - but I really liked the newest bunch of necklaces and brooches and thought I'd share them.
This time I combined the cabochons with different stampings and charms and used a few more colors than usual - blue for example. I don't know why, but I'm not really fond of blue, that's why I don't use it for my jewelry too often.

The funny part? Although red and green are my favorite colors I LOVE two pieces from this photo - they're blue and purple  Grin

34  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Cage Skirt on: June 14, 2011 01:19:54 PM
I made this cage skirt quite a while ago but somehow I never got around to posting a photo of it. Last weekens I finally combined it with some nice clothes and took photos =)

The neck ruffle, fascinator and bloomers are handmade, too.

35  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Somewhere over the... bracelet on: April 27, 2011 11:08:27 AM
This is what I came up with whgen I found out that I have more colorful buttons than I expected  Grin
It's made the same way as my other felt bracelets (tutorial can be found here), but slightly smaller.

And here's another one ^^ No rainbow this time, but I love black and white!
36  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Caroussel Raptor Bag on: April 22, 2011 11:30:52 AM
Caroussel horses are cute, but raptors are... well, they're raptors  Grin

The picture is flock printed (drawn with some help from a velociraptor picture I found online) and the bag is made from scratch. It's simple enough to be made without a pattern  Wink

37  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Low Budget Velvet Cape on: April 13, 2011 05:12:37 AM
For a photo shoot I made a red velvet cape - actually I wanted it to be huge, at least 3/4 circle, a full circle would be even better... those visions were destroyed when I saw that the fabric was only 90cm wide - I would have needed about twice as much fabric than I originally planned.
That's why I changed my plan, bought only 3,5m of the fabric and made this low budget version.

The cape is rectangular and gathered on the shoulders, the hem measures twice the fabric width (=1,80m).
I still think a full circle would have been so much better, but I really like this cape and I didn't have to spend too much money (about 30) for it ^^

38  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Skeleton Cameo Lolita Skirt on: April 07, 2011 09:48:54 AM

I finally made something for myself again ^^
It's a lolita skirt - or actually two skirt, the longer layer is a simple underskirt.
The picture is inspired by the skeleton cameos that almost everyone (including me xD) uses for their jewelry. I changed the hair and ribcage quite a lot, though.

39  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Some Steampunk jewelry on: March 29, 2011 01:26:29 AM
I originally bought those wing pieces to decorate my broken heart brooches, but when they arrived I couldn't resist to make some stereotyped Steampunk jewelry as well  Grin
Winged clockworks and cameos have probably been done a million times before, but I think they're so pretty ^^

The next pieces are a necklace with one of my favorite butterfly charms - I've combined it with gears and cameos already and I had this clockwork so... yeah xD
The peacock brooch is a remake of (almost exactly) the same one in antique brass I've made a few months ago.

Aaaaand next: some simple cameo jewelry and a brooch with a key in some 'burnt' polymer clay ^^

And something very simple again: rose and cameo hairpins.
Those hairpins are really huge and sturdy, I was quite surprised when they arrived  Grin
40  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Broken Hearts 2.0 + some Steampunk - pic heavy on: March 22, 2011 09:29:22 AM
You probably know how new obsessions can be... you start something and then you can't stop.
My broken heart jewelry did this to me. After I made a few simple brooches and necklaces I got a bit more creative (or obsessed?) and made lots of new jewelry - including improved brooch designs, ear studs, rings, new necklaces....
I also made "wounded" cabochons (I know this sounds weird) and even some jewelry without broken hearts but with my favorite motives (including gears, butterflies, keys...)
