1  Evil Dead Holster - Made for Evil Dead the Musical in Las Vegas in Costumes: Completed Projects by JustinKase on: February 20, 2012 12:48:21 PM
I was in Evil Dead the Musical recently (I played the best friend), which sold out two runs, and is looking for a more perm home in Las Vegas.

Anyway I wanted our lead to have one kick ass holster.  So I watched the movies, searched the web for images, and finally put together this holster.  It took me two weeks from start to finish.
When I first looked at it I felt it was too plain (hell this was gong to be in a musical in vegas and needed a little extra umph) so I decided to carve a cool dead tree (design by urban threads) into it.  Needless to say this holster got hit by tons of "blood" over the months of the performance.
So here are some shots of the front, back, and carving (before the dye job) modeled by our star Ben Stobber as Ashley J. Williams.

I love his eyebrow in these two

Here is the carving.

Heck I even threw in a shot of me as Scotty after I was disembowled by the trees.

So I got into town this morning at 1:30 Am and finally got to see the items in my package.
And I am in town long enough to post pics before I leave again in less than 6 hours, so here we go.

Here are three books marks, two with my favorite quote's and one with my wife's.  Her's is only one word long.

Next was this agragumi (I am pretty sure i am spelling that wrong) Dr. Horrible.  I will be putting him on my desk as work, when I am back from business trips.

I asked for man jewelry and Alchamy513 sent me this very cool necklace.  My son has claimed it before I got home and has been wearing it for the past few days.

There was also a shrinky dink keychain, but my com and mem card are not talking to each other, so I cannot download a pic.  I will do my best to get one post though because it was a very cool Dr Horrible key chain.

Finally was my very own Jane hat.  It is currently 100+ in Vegas so I will wait until winter to wear it, and yes it does fit.  My wife took a pic of my son waering it though, and I think he is getting very good on his Jane scowl.

Thanks again for all the cool swag, and I hope you enjoy your pacakge when it arrives.  It got in the mail today.

Now other things
The Origami of Frankstein

I like how I can remove the head on one of them.

Finally the Main jewelry of Frankstein.  I asked for guy jewelry in my questionaire to see what my partner might come up with.  i also put in that I collect belt buckles.  Well i was not disappointed.  i cannot wait to get home and try them out.

Thanks again for all the cool swag.  I cannot wait to get home and see them in person.

4  Shag Inspired Drink Tray in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by JustinKase on: April 20, 2010 07:54:50 PM
Hello All,
  It hs been a really long time since I have posted anything, heck almost a year, so i thought I would start with a project I finished late last year.
  I had these wooden trays lying around from a block set my son got for a birthday years ago.
  My wife and I decided that we were going to host some parties, and we needed drink trays.
  We are both huge fans of the artist SHAG, so taking his Drunken Pirate Skeleton image I sprayed the tray with red Krylon and then used acrylic paints to make my own redition of the SHAG drinking skeleton.

I think it turned out pretty well.

5  Alas Poor Yorick, I Chewed Him Well - Zombie Pinup Shadowbox in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by JustinKase on: July 20, 2009 05:12:41 AM
For one of my recent swaps I created a pinup Bride of Frankenstein Shadow box for my partner.  It turned out so well that I wanted to make more of them like this, and this one is my second attempt at creating a shadow box.

This one was for a family friend that was feeling a bit down lately, so I wanted to cheer her up.  She is really into zombies, and I found this nice image of a zombie chick on the internet. I printed the image out in black and white, and colored her in.

I then went about decorating her room, putting up wall paper and posters.  Creating her fainting couch and window from scratch.

So here is the finished product titled Alas Poor Yorick, I chewed him well!

Here is two close ups of the top and bottom.  I used foam dots to give it a layered and depth look (really hard to tell in a 2 dimensional picture), and I liked the skull sticker I found to use as a throw pillow.

Here is the Bride of Frankenstein shadowbox I made for kittykill in our Psychobilly Swap

My wife still wants to know where her shadowbox is. Grin

Kittykill was not sure when she was going to be able to post pics of the package I sent her, so i told her I could do it with no problem.  So here are the pics I took of the package I sent to Kittykill. 

The first thing I sent was a pillow case made from fabric that displayed the old Universal Monsters on it.  I wanted to send two, but I only had enough fabric for one, and it has been out of print for a couple years (trust me I looked).

According to her, her husband promptly stole it.  Cheesy
I also have a bowling shirt made with this material.

She said she liked bags (which I have rarely mat a woman who does not like bags), and I saw this one and though she might like it.

I told you I went to a store in Vegas called Cash for Chaos.  Well I saw several things I just had to pick up for Kittykill.
The first was a Social Distortion back patch (I know it is not rockabilly, but she said it was one of her favorite bands).

The next was a wind up zombie hand.

Finally I got her a Japanese Monster post card.  Here is it pictured with an embroidered Flapper girl tatto art that my wife made and I also sent to Kittykill.

The next thing I sent to Kittykill was a set of chunky rockabilly jewelry that I decided to test with this swap. I sent a necklace, ring and earing set in pink.
I am going to call the set Pirate Glam (A friend came up with the name)

I am currently in the process of making a set for the wife, in green.

Also in the picture is a tattoo art pin that I have been working on.
Here is a close up on it.

Simply done with polymer clay and temp tattoos.

The final item I sent I am most proud of.  I made a shadowbox piece with a pin-up Bride of Frankenstein waiting for her man.  There is is sitting in her room with her favorite movie posters her zombie jack russel terrier fetching her foot, and staring a a picture of her Mr. Right.

I liked it so much it was very hard for me to send it.  My wife said I had to make her one.

So that is the package I sent.  If Kittykill got better pictures of some of the items I am sure she will post them.

This was a really fun swap and i cannot wait for round 2.

I received my pacakge from Kittykill on Wed (sorry it has taken me so long to post, but I just got my camera back).

All I can say about my pacakge is WOW, WOW, WOW.  I loved it.

The first thing I saw when I opened the box was peanut everywhere (of which my children were trying to steal and seed the house with).

When i opened the first series of packages I found soap.  And not just any soap, but monster soap.

That's Frankenstein's monster in the center, with three bats, two skulls, a vampire, and a screaming ghost. 
I am in the process of trying to figure out how to display them, without my guests trying to use them.

The next item I got was a metal display board, with magents made from the cover of an old spanish horror novel.  I also got a BELT BUCKLE. ::dances with joy::

I collect belt buckles and this one was just too cool.  I wore it most of the weekend with my kilt and jeans.  I live in Vegas so the fact it was a royal flush also worked out well.

Here is an up close of the buckle

And an up close of the magnets

The next thing I opened was this wall hanging.  Which was also very cool. It is now hanging in the Kase Family Art Gallery (or as we call it, the hallway).
I am a pirate in my other life, and my lucky number is 13, so this fits well with our decor.

The final thing I opened (because I set it aside and almost missed it) was this tiki mug.  The wife is redocrating our room with a rockabilly/tiki theme, and this works really well in the room.  It is also a collectors item from the Tiki Walk in 2004 so I am being real careful with it as I do not think I can replace it.

Once again thanks so much Kittykill everything was Fantastic, Wonderful, and stupendous...  Ahem, I mean it was real cool Kitty.

I am done... I am done  Grin Grin Grin

The last item I worked on turned out terrific, and I am going to worry about it making the trip (I have written the words fragile on the box enough and I bubble wrapped the crap out of it.  I liked the finished item so much that I was sorry to send it off.  Oh well I am going to have to make another one for myself.

I am shipping tomorrow and just thought I would post a teaser pick.

9  Bracers for a Cause (Image Heavy) in Completed Projects by JustinKase on: April 20, 2009 06:03:51 AM
I walked in the Las Vegas Aid for Aids fo Nevada walk this last Sunday to show that even pirates support this worthy cause.
Putting on my garb I decided that I did not have enough accessories and my arms were a little bare (not enough tattoos yet).
So I decided to make some bracers for my forearms.

Here are the finished products.

I took some heavy leather 10oz and carved the skill and mermaid into the leather and then wet formed them to the shape I needed with the help of some two liter bottles of soda.

Here is a close up of the mermaid.

And here is the skull

Here is some more pictures of the finished pieces.

I am very happy with the way the red turned out with the mermaid.  I think it make her stand out.

I think my favorite thing about the skill is the eyebrow.

Finally here are a couple pics of the walk itself.
The first is to get an idea on the small portion of walkers out that day.

The second is me (the Finished product) with one of my new friends.  She was with Team Wine-Os

With them on I felt kind of like a superhero... Or maybe a supervillain.  I cannot fight my pirate nature.

10  I cuffed my Kids. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by JustinKase on: March 22, 2009 12:28:32 PM
I wanted to work on a leather belt, but everything I was trying to do with it did not work out, and by the time I realized that it was not working out the piece of leather that I had cut out was no longer big enough for my waist.

So what to do with this long strip of 1.5 inch leather... I know make cuff braclets for my kids, my nephew and niece.

So here are the finished products.

The first two bracelts are ones that I made for my son and nephew.  I carved the skull (An Urban Threads pattern) and added a ruby eye to each.

I then embellished them by carving crossed bones for my son, and stamping stars for my newphew (he skateboards).

For my daughter and niece I once again carved the skulls with ruby eyes

And then added cherries for my niece and hearts for my daughter.

You can see with this picture that I gave them snap closures.

I was really happy how these came out (especially since these were my first attempts).  I will look into making more of these in the future, possibly with a buckle closure instead of the snaps (that way when they grow the braclets will still fit.
