1  Designer Grad Dress! :P in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by CaityBear on: November 23, 2010 06:07:13 PM
This is extremely late. I designed and made my own grad dress for this last May. Of course, everybody kept freaking out because I started so "late". I told everybody I knew so that I had to hold myself to it. I didn't start my dress until January or February and everybody was worried I wouldn't finish it on time. Except for me. Tongue

I enjoy saying I had a designer grad dress. Tongue

Anyway! Here's the dress!


Back::(also hair which was done by my lovely boyfriend's cousin)

(I had wished I could've used wider ribbon but I didn't have any)


And just some others for fun::

And me and my boy::

Me and my besties:: (three of my boyfriend's cousin, BF's sister, two of my cousins, and a girl I grew up with, and my BF Smiley)

2  Colours, colours, colours. What's best with red hair/blue eyes? in Costumes: Discussion and Questions by CaityBear on: October 01, 2009 09:00:44 PM
I have never been the best with colours. I'm making my grad dress this year and I don't have much of an idea for colours yet. I plan to scope out material before, but I have two ideas in mind of colours I wouldn't mind. I have blue eyes and red hair. I'm just wondering how these colours would work. Would they look good? Would they accentuate the colour of my eyes/hair? Or would they just look horrible?

This is my hair colour using natural light with the help of flash. (Best picture I could find, so don't mind the shot. I needed a length shot for something else)


And here are the two colours:
First is a blue like this:


The second is the purple dress:


Any other suggestions of what would look good? I'm looking for a darker colour like those two, not pastels or anything.

3  Oreo Cookies and Buckeyes! in Dessert by CaityBear on: August 25, 2009 04:06:15 PM
I was baking a lot last time I was home (about 3 weeks ago) and took some pictures. I haven't had time to post them until now.

I made Oreo Cookies and Buckeye Peanut Butter Balls.

Oreo Cookies:

I love chocolate, and I was making them at the same time as the Buckeyes so of course I had to try dipping one in chocolate. VERY delicous!

I can't remember where I found the recipe, if it was on here, or through a Google search.

And the Buckeyes:

Very, very good. I found the recipe and can't seem to find the post now. If anybody finds the URL, post it,and I can add it to this post. Smiley

4  My latest shirts AND skirts! :) Pic-heavy. in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by CaityBear on: July 07, 2008 09:39:22 PM
Ignore the poses, I was bored. Tongue And don't mind the outfits, they aren't all meant to go together. I just wanted to take less pictures, so if they don't look good, that is why. lol

The shirt I actually did a long time ago. The skirt only recently.

The shirt has pockets! :O

Recent shirt, from scratch and without pattern.

The shirt I made today! Smiley


It looks like crap, but, meh, I just wanted to get it on. lol

The brown on the skirt is actually from the bottom of another skirt and I added the black underneath because the brown was kind of see through. The skirt has a laceup side, but I don't have a shot of it. Sad

A skirt I made yesterday. Sadly, I'm almost all out of that material! Sad

Detail! Smiley

5  A dress and two shirts: my first projects from scrap :D in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by CaityBear on: April 20, 2008 04:42:51 PM
Sorry about some of the crappy pictures. My younger brother took them...

This was the first dress I made. Smiley Very proud of myself. Very surprised at how it turned out haha. Made without a pattern, too.

I've never used patterns though. And I rarely make my own patterns though I want to start.

The brown top was made without a pattern also. The brown was from the bottom of a way too long skirt I got last year. The top part was just material lying around.

The light blue part of the other shirt was from another shirt. The dark blue and tan was material from other clothing that I used.
