I didn't know there was a hair forum on here! WOO!
Anyway, yesterday 4 of my friends and I dyed our hair with manic panic dye (washes out in about a month or so)
So...I have natural red hair, dyed it "Deadly Nightshade" and had no idea how it was going to turn out...but I thought it turned out good:

yeah. that's it. =)

Thanks! I'm glad you like the name!

that's too bad that your names are taken... =(
I hope you think of something else...one that I thought of is Art A La Carte...I don't know if it's taken or maybe you don't like it, but I thought I'd mention it...

I do have pics of my stuff, I'll post a couple, they can pretty much all be found in the reconstructed clothing board:
my barack the vote shirt:

dinosaur dress:

seersucker miniskirt:

anyway, hope you like them, and thanks again for the positive feedback on my name!
Good luck finding a name for your business!

23  ugly pants+too small top+small child+me=SKIRT! YAY! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Hltrskltr on: July 12, 2008 07:35:51 AM
So we had friends visiting and their daughter is 8. She saw my sewing machine and boxes of clothes to be reconned, and insisted that I help her make something.
So, we took these absolutely hideous pink pants and a too small (for me, too big for her) tank top with this really cool print, and also some scraps of white T-shirt fabric...and made...this:

Here it is before we put the pocket on:e

and after (she insisted the pocket be straight up and down and in line with the rest of the skirt, I wanted to put it on all asymmetrical and such, but she won):

close up of pocket (which was a piece of fabric from the bottom hem of the pants, it had the cool embroidery already):

and here she is sewing (her seams were SO STRAIGHT, it was insane):

and here we are:

24  It's like Rock the Vote! Only Obama-fied!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Hltrskltr on: June 24, 2008 10:22:04 AM
yeah, so this is one of my favorite things I've made so far, I'm very very proud of it!!!!!
It says Barack the Vote on it....which I thought was obvious, y'know, like rock the vote...but not a lot of people got it...they're like, huh? Like they think it's supposed to say like Barack: the vote or something...anyway...I'm rambling...so...pics!
Oh..it's made from an XL shirt and the letters are pieces of other T-shirt fabric I cut up...
this is what it looked like before:

and AFTER!:

here's another pic, just because:

close up of the letter detail:


close up of the bottom part:

close up of the top part:

yeah! so I love it!!! and I'm thinking of making more that say "Barack the vote," or "Barack and roll" or "yes we can" or just "obama '08" etc. and selling them at the farmers market and giving part of the profit to the Obama campaign...

BUT: I need opinions, should I leave the back plain, or add "Obama '08 Yes We Can!"Huh??
also: tell me what you think of it!!! yay!

close up of the fabric:

26  Pocketses...precious pocketses...lots of pictureses too.... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Hltrskltr on: June 16, 2008 08:54:48 AM
This bag is custom made to fit all the crap I carry around =)
It's made from two t-shirts, one that says "Go vote Go run Go lead Go girl," from the White House project.
The other one is from Asian World Imports, a little free trade store where I work.
anyway...it can be worn with either side facing out:


here's a closer up view:

and the close up of the lace on top:

AND...pockets! I LOVE pockets!!!!
This one is a little pocket to put...well, anything, in. I use it because I always carry ibuprofen and allergy pills around...so. yeah. It's also the perfect size for, um, feminine things. =)
It's just a back pocket from some pants.

Next: iPod pocket!

My iPod's not old...it's *retro* =P

AND: it's kind of hard to tell in this picture, but there's a little hole at the bottom of the iPod pocket, so I can plug in my headphones...I would love to say I did this on purpose, but really I made the pocket too small for the iPod and headphones both to fit in...oh well, it worked out:

Now this is like my favorite part of the bag! I ALWAYS lose my keys, so....a small plastic ring thingy (Don't really know what it's called):

and...I can hook my keys to it!!! WOO!

more pocketses:
this one is for my USB key (I know, I'm such a nerd):

And this one's for lip gloss:

yeah...so if you're still reading this and haven't been scared away by the millions of pics...tell me what you think!!!

OK, so I went to the thrift store and saw this skirt...it was really ugly, but it had potential...
as usual, I forgot to take before pics =)
But I drew a lovely little picture with paint:

um. yeah. sorry for my crap drawing skills...
anyway....I chopped it up and came up with this:

it's all floofy! and small! Woo!!!
Here's a closer-up picture:

so..yeah. The waistband is from a pair of pants I had lying around...

anyway...tell me what you think!!!
