31  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My name is Brittany.... and I'm obsessed with rainbows. on: January 24, 2010 06:00:00 PM
I can't help it.

Painted and reconned the sleeves on a purple shirt. The sleeves are puffy with red, orange, yellow, and green inserts.

This dress reminds me of a circus, so I call it my rainbow circus dress. Smiley! It's made of eight tshirts (one for each color of the rainbow). I originally intended for it to have the sleeves I put on that shirt ^^^^ but I decided in the end to leave it sleeve/strapless.

Rainbow and black armwarmers. Made from tshirt scraps. (From that dress^^ as well as a previous recon-gone-wrong)

32  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Music notes and baby colored buttons on: January 24, 2010 05:54:01 PM
Two new items.

Music note skirt. It's gathered and has a half-elastic waistband.
(My mum got me this fabric for christmas Cheesy!)

Baby print babydoll dress. Shirred in the back, with additional elastic under the bust and adorable eyelet lace on the hem.  (Mum also got me this fabric :3!)

33  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Dinos, toy trains, skeletons, and more. on: December 06, 2009 06:07:44 PM
A few things.

Rainbow dino necklace.

Toy train necklace.
I have to figure out how to make it sit up straight before I'll ever wear it. It kind of tips over as is.

Skeleton necklace.

Hair clips. One legos, a wooden bat, skeleton hands with lace, and bat and cross bones.

Until the next post,
happy crafting
34  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Stripes, toys, pink gingham, kitties, and carebears. on: December 06, 2009 06:04:26 PM
Just a couple projects.
I'm getting ready to start making christmas gifts for some friends, so my next post will include those Smiley!
For now:
Some skirts.

Black and white stripes.

Toy lolita skirt with matching bow.
I need a petticoat, I think this skirt would look adorable with more poof. Smiley!

A couple dresses.

Dino dress.
I love this, so much.

Pink gingham with kitties.
This was supposed to be kind of lolita, but it kind of failed.
It was more of a learning experience then anything.

Care bear tie.
I didn't own any colorful ties, just black and white ones, so I decided to use some scraps of Care bear fabric to whip myself up a tie. :3!

This doesn't technically go here, but it isn't special enough for its own thread. Haha.

Simple slash and weave tshirt recon

That's all for now Cheesy!
35  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Rainbow Brite, see the shining light, yes I'm gonna take you to Rainbow Brite! on: November 03, 2009 04:41:34 PM
Starlite flies, right before your eyes.
And rainbow colors will cheer you upppppp Cheesy!

So, its obv at this point what my costume was this year.

Smiley! Rainbow Brite <3!
I'm called Rainbow Brite so much all the time because of my everyday clothing style, so I figured why not be Rainbow Brite for halloween?
Originally, I had basic plans of how I would construct it. I broke down the outfit into four basic pieces; dress, vest, sleeves, and bootcovers. Then I figured out how to use methods and techniques I already know to create the each piece. I didn't use any patterns and I just winged it. At the end, nothing was how I originally plannned. Haha.
But I made it work Smiley!

The dress was basically a tube top with a circle skirt. The back is shirred. I decided to add straps to avoid any mishaps.... Roll Eyes!

I stitched on the yellow rectangle with machine and the red dots by hand. I learned that I love exposed stitching like this Smiley!

The "sleeves" from my beginning plan turned into armwarmers in the end.... due to the fact I have no idea how to construct sleeve patterns, connect them to a dress, etc. They went up passed my elbow, so they were just like sleeves, just not attached. Tongue!
The star is stitched on by hand Smiley! I think the armwarmers are my favorite thing out of the entire outfit <3!

Vest with felt rainbow "buckle" I inserted grommets to the front and laced it up, then covered the lacing with the rainbow. I used interfacing to get the "sleeves" to stick out, which was kind of a flop. But meh
&Last but not least,

The boot covers that shaved about twenty years off my life -_-! Haha.
These seemed so basic, but they took me the longest time. I ended up making them too small, but more grommets and some lacing fixed that! I wore them over my Demonia platforms. They were pretty much a flop because they ripped within one hour of wear.... :/! But I'm proud that I completed them, at least!
As I imagined, NO ONE knew who I was :/! I had people ask me if I was a carebear (WTF?!), Strawberry Shortcake(....) and even Wonder Woman! I was so upset, because I spent a good week on this costume and no one knew who I was. But my close friends all praised me for making an entire costume myself, so that made me feel good Smiley! Overall, I'm pretty happy with it.
This year I learned I prefer scary/gore-y to cute costumes. Next year I plan on being something scary ;]! No more cute costumes for me!

36  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Bunny cube on: September 05, 2009 11:05:17 PM

I made this little fella for a friend of mine. :''3! Hes a little keychain.
She loved him and put him on her backpack.
I'm still a plushie n00b so hes kinda suck-ish. ._.!
Ahh well XD!

37  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Light up ducky and Emo Joe on: September 05, 2009 11:00:26 PM

I scored this little guy for 2 bucks in a shop at Huntington Beach. :3!
I knew I wanted to make him into one of my crazy necklaces.
He lights up a bunch of different colors.

I got this little dude in a 50 cent machine at walmart.
My friend and I were strolling around and saw these and I read the names on the machine and his name was "Emo Joe" XD! After I got done laughing I set out to get one. About fifteen dollars and five bucks later, the both of us had our own Emo Joe, along with a couple reject ugly ones Tongue! We're pretty crazy. Haha.
Me being me, I made him into a necklace.
Ahhh. the memories.

38  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Some perler bead stuff on: September 05, 2009 10:52:57 PM

Cassette tape.

Rainbow cuff.
I was bored with doing the same old perler pendants so I wondered if I could somehow make a cuff.
&it worked Cheesy!
It attaches with a ribbon.

39  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Gloomy Bear on: September 05, 2009 09:27:22 PM

Screen printing is soooooooo fun. Cheesy!
This is definitely my favorite shirt I've ever done.


40  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Shredded tee and spider webbed back on: September 05, 2009 09:22:28 PM

I got this Twilight shirt at walmart on clearance, w00t!, so I decided to make it awesome and give it a spider web back.

I love shredded tees, and if they didn't take forever I'd make a million of them Tongue!

Yup, yup
