21  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / How to make Venetian/Masqurade Masks on: October 28, 2010 06:05:36 PM
I had bought two while I was on a school related trip to Italy (one for me, and one for a friend) and I absolutely love them. They're so gorgeous. I would love to be able to make more for pictures for fun.

What would make for the best base? I honestly might try many different ways (cardboard, plastic, paper mache, etc) but I'm looking for opinions from others who might've made them before and might know beforehand which worked best for them, personally.

Sounds exactly like me!! I made my grad dress for last May (don't think I posted it here yet...I should...hmm) and I usually cut corners and don't do mock-ups and all that jazz, but I tried my hardest to do all the small details for my grad dress and to not procrastinate. lol

I love it though! It looks great on you.
23  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Body forms question on: October 14, 2010 04:13:57 PM
I do everything in my head so I couldn't tell you how they could use a small dressform for a bigger person. I could probably do it but I always work everything out in my head. I have kind of done it, but it wasn't a huge size difference.

As for the body forms, you can find ones that have adjustable measurements. There's a couple different ones that range from a certain measurement to another. I don't like adjusting mine so if I make something for a friend who has larger measurements then me I just work with my size and think things through in my head.

A dressform isn't perfect anyways. It's just a base to use. If I wanted to make my dressform more like me I'd have to pad the butt because the dressform has NO butt at all and I have a lot of butt (lol) and I'd have to pad the boobs. As well, the waist isn't as curved as mine.
24  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Custom Fabric Tags?? on: October 09, 2010 12:21:10 PM
Where can you order custom fabric tags online?? When I start selling my clothes I would like to be able to put tags in them and I have pretty much no idea where I can order some online.

I love eyes like that! Smiley I've done really bright eyes with 2-3 colours before, but not usually that many. It looks very good.
26  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / How to add straps to pumps? on: September 18, 2010 02:49:43 PM
I want to take a pair of pumps and add something to go over the top of the foot so my foot stays in.

I have really high arches so my arches never touch the shoe and so my heel is always slipping out of the shoes when I walk. Thus I don't wear those shoes often (they're also pretty high...4 1/2 inches). So what kind of things can I do and how to go about it.

I was thinking something like adding ribbon and gluing it under the edge of the insole in the shoe and then have it go over top like that.

I just need any sort of random ideas shot out at me. I've only recently started to think about reconing shoes (I just added grommets to a pair of thigh high boots to lace them up. I will post pictures when I get the chance.) so I have no idea how to really go about working with shoes. I'm used to working with clothes! lol
27  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Etsy vs Artfire? on: September 16, 2010 05:46:49 PM
I just found Artfire today. Never heard of it before. I am not selling anything right now, though I might in the future. For the time being I'm just curious.

Who has a shop where? What do you like/dislike about them? Which do you prefer?

Any other websites you sell at? What do you think of them??

I'm actually planning on doing that soon! Last year around Halloween I bought these thigh high boots, but of course they don't even go up to the knee so I want to slice them down the side and have them lace up...then find a costume I can build around them. haha

Yours look pretty awesome btw! I love them.
29  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Homemade Yogurt on: August 08, 2010 11:31:09 AM
I've been looking at homemade yogurt recipes. I have the plain yogurt, now I need the recipe to make it.

In the recipes I've found they use different amounts of yogurt. Some are 1 quart milk, and 2 T yogurt while another says 1 quart milk and 1/4 cup yogurt. So why do they use different amounts of yogurt? Would it be better to use more or less yogurt??

Where could I find these? Or where can I order them online?
