1  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Boney Addvice on: September 05, 2010 07:48:00 AM
Rabbits aren't rodents.. they're lagomorphs Tongue (Third year vet student hehe).

But anyway, I'd agree, that definitely looks like a rabbit skull to me!
2  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Re: Furby Costume!! on: August 07, 2010 04:05:31 AM
Haha thanks, I love it too!

I forgot to say what it's made of - plain black t-shirt, bit of faux fur for the tummy that I picked up in a charity shop, then the eyes and ears and beak (mouth?!) etc are made from foam or felt - basically whatever I had lying around in suitable colours!!

Ha, thanks, his t-shirt was another crafty idea - I emailed someone on ebay selling transfers and asked if they could make a snorlax one for me and just ironed it on for him! He refuses to wear it now though Sad - I WOULD!!
4  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Furby Costume!! on: August 07, 2010 02:49:53 AM
Me and my housemates are hosting a house warming party when we get back to uni this September - I offered to make a costume for one of them! The theme for our party is retro 90s toys/characters so I've been brainstorming and decided to make him an awesome furby costume!!

Here are the pictures of what I created (on me - he's only seen photos so far):

Hope you like it Smiley In all it was a really cheap and quick project - cost around 3 to make (including the T-shirt) and took 2-3 hours.

Now I've just got to think of my costume!! I'm thinking maybe a beanie baby (just be an animal with a giant TY tag attached to me), or maybe rupert bear.. What do you guys think?!

5  COOKING / Dessert / My Aipom Pokemon Cake! (And a rat cake) on: April 19, 2010 12:05:20 AM
I made this Aipom cake for my boyfriend's 21st.. he requested it because he likes monkeys and pokemon.. so a monkey pokemon it was!

I made 4 cakes so it was double layered with chocolate icing inbetween the 2 chocolate sponge layers.  It has buttercream icing which i dyed with food colouring (red and blue), and then the face of aipom is fondant roll out icing with chocolate icing for his drawn on bits!

Enjoy! It's the second cake I've ever made. I've included a picture of my first cake (the rat) too!!

The cake being cut Tongue

(P.S. the theme was "Black tie with a pokemon twist"!)

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Making fashionable clothes - any free tutorials/patterns?! on: August 01, 2009 01:10:43 PM
Hi guys,

Sorry if this isn't the right place for this/just a stupid thing to ask.. but basically I've never made any clothing or anything but would LOVE to start.  There's so much stuff I want off fashion/shop websites but as I'm a poor student I can't buy whatever I want Smiley I've only done a bit of customisation before with stencils etc.. I'd like to try the whole sewing/designing thing though!

I was just wondering if anyone knows of any good links to free tutorials/patterns for quite fashionable clothing?

Sorry if this is really vague!

9  U.K. AND IRELAND / ENGLAND / Where to get vintage (real or style) charms etc? on: July 29, 2009 01:32:54 PM

I'm looking for a supplier of vintage charms! I keep seeing lovely jewellery made with them and I'd love to make some for myself! Does anyone know of any shops/online shops? (Probably wholesale is better as it'll be better value).

Also any good online bead shops out there?! Or any in Buckinghamshire?

Thanks so much Smiley
