1  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Bedazzled Oxfords on: February 03, 2013 01:12:03 PM
I broke out my Bedazzler! I added studs to my favorite Oxfords, only on the inside so they're really subtle. I'm really happy with the way they turned out.

2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Antique Stamp Necklace on: February 03, 2013 01:08:15 PM
I made this necklace out of an antique stamp I bought at a flea market. It was super easy! All you need is the stamp, an eye screw and some chain.

More photos and full tutorial here: http://halfcraftstudio.wordpress.com/2013/02/03/diy-antique-stamp-necklace/

Super excited to wear it!
3  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Ageing a Wool Top Hat on: October 01, 2012 04:55:00 PM
I'm doing costumes for a friend's film, and there is a character who is an old magician and he wears a traditional magician's costume (tails, red vest, bowtie) and a big top hat. We got a new wool top hat and I need to age it. I'd like it to look dusty, but I'm hesitant to stain it in case it is too noticeable. I'd appreciate any advice on how to make it look old, using any method.

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Tim Burton-inspired ballgown on: May 02, 2011 09:41:04 PM
I made this gown for my Fibers class this semester. These photos are the documentation for the project. The ballgown is made from a vintage Gunne Sax pattern. It was the most complicated pattern I've ever used, which was actually pretty fun. I also made the hairpieces, they're mostly those weird fake plants from Michael's that I spray painted black and I hot glued clear river rocks inside the flowers and drew eyes on them. Many thanks to my roommate Deirdre for modeling. The location is Ringing Rocks Park in PA.

5  COOKING / Dessert / Star Wars Cake -- Yoda on Dagobah on: April 03, 2011 06:08:01 PM
I made this cake for my friend's birthday party. He's really into Star Wars. It's Yoda's house, pretty much based on the Dagobah map from Star Wars Battlefront II, because we are really that nerdy. I couldn't find a Yoda figurine so I bought a pez dispenser of his head and made the body out of candy and colored sugar.

And this is Pickles helping with the icing.
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Fused plastic grocery bag vest on: December 30, 2010 08:27:07 PM
Hey all!

I made this vest for my Plastics for Jewelry class this semester. It's made of fused plastic bags that I laser-cut with a lace pattern. Then I fused the pieces together with an iron.

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Headbands from Italian Bowties on: September 13, 2010 04:27:03 PM
I made these headbands from some vintage bowties I found at a market in Rome, Italy. I did some research and I'd place the bowties as being from the 1940s or 50s.

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Wedding Cake Dress on: August 14, 2010 04:12:55 PM
I made this dress out of a vintage slip I got at a thrift store. The top is stretchy lace with shoulder pads. It's kinda weird because the shoulder pads aren't sheer but the rest is, but I think it looks cool. I kept the original skirt and added seventeen layers of ruffles... was more lace than I dreamed it would take haha.

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / How to make a romper from pants on: July 26, 2010 03:52:37 PM
I had a lot of fun making this romper out of some ridiculous pants I found at my thrift store. The pants are a kelly green knit and they are vintage Express. They are pleated in the front and have side pockets, and had a really pronounced taper at the ankle. They are elasticized at the back.

So I made the top part out of jersey, it's just a really basic double scoop. I sewed on the shorts just like you'd sew a skirt to the waist of a dress and I hemmed the pants into shorts. That was it! The jersey is stretchy and the pants have elastic so it just slips on! It's pretty comfy. You just have to make sure the torso of the top is long enough so the shorts don't ride up haha.

10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Have you turned that beautiful, avocado-green, vintage blender into a lamp yet? on: July 20, 2010 05:10:51 PM

My inspiration, of course, being the subheading of the Home Sweet Home Reconstructed board. I've been wanting to do this for years. We gutted the bottom part and took out the motor and all the electric stuff is hidden inside. My dad did all the wiring, I pretty much just did the idea part haha.
