WOW! That's so pretty, makes me long for dark and cold and snowy ( = cosyness inside) already. Mmm, and Christmas!

Seriously inspiring work, I especially love the snowman on the bottom of your quilt, and that shovel making its way through snow. Genious! (I'd love to see details of that!)

I guess you're pretty proud of it, you really should. And your mom will be super excited! Cheesy

They're all stunning! Beautiful colors, amazing motifs! My fav's are 4 and 5.

Never seen those bamboo tile necklaces, where did you get the material for it? Did you make the tiles from bamboo, or did you buy them as is?

Truly gorgeous!

How did you do that? Are you a silver smith or is that clay? I'm not good at telling, but I'm very curious.

Any which way, absolutely stunning!

That is SO gorgeous! Shocked I don't know what "King of the Hill" is really, but I sure appreciate good embroidery skills... And this piece, my friend, is more than that - it's effing ARTWORK! Also I don't think you need another comma, but I could be wrong seeing that I'm not from around your part of the world. Wink

Again: Great great work. It is truly BEAUTIFUL!

ETA: The hair is just WOW! Can't stop looking at your embroidery...

40  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Help make me a pin-up girl! (need DIY photo/costume/hair/pose ideas!) on: January 05, 2007 01:22:59 PM
I too love this idea and this thread!

I've done this (at least started out experimenting with poses and looks) and quickly found out that I don't look good in full body shots, which brings us to the hardest part:

Posing: To pose for a "full body" shot could be tricky, it's hard to know what to do with your hands/feet/legs. I was just feeling and looking awkward and uncomfortable (the opposite of playful pin-up lady) Smiley So I gave up on that idea... My favourite photos from my experiment are the ones taken from behind, just showing my body from above the butt and up. It's just showing naked back, shoulders and a little bit of waist and hip. No buttcrack nor boobie visible. Smiley Just me all dolled up and doing the "sultry lady glancing at the photographer over one shoulder". It's a classic, and I don't think anyone could fail with that one.

Though you want the full on, whole body pin-up look (knowing your man is a leg-guy and all!) and that's what I'd go for too if I could whip up the courage. I guess in the end it's all about being comfortable with the environment, props, photographer and... well yourself! You have to do a lot of research (fun), a lot of posing in front of the mirror (fun) and just play with it (also fun) until you find something that you like.

Classics: My favourite pose that don't require any props (except for stockings and garter and that's not optional to a pin-up anyway) is the "Ooops, I sure need to straighten my stocking" pose. It's innocent and it makes for some very flattering gam-exposure. See also the aforementioned "school teacher looking over the rim of the glasses" look (only prop needed: cat-eye (?) glasses) - That's also a classic, but might be more for the cleavage-exposing pin-up wannabes?

For some perfect leg action: Sit on/in something: place your butt in a clothes hamper, a bath tub, a basket, a hat box (a much used classic)... and let your nylon clad legs stretch out from that... (uh, but what to do with your arms?)

Props: A chair is a very useful prop. Everyone has one. Everyone needs one sometime. It's a natural ingredient in almost any environment. It makes for straddling (tee hee), resting your feet upon, sitting like a proper lady in (crossed legs at the ankle, crossed legs at the knee or in lotus position), you could lean casually against it, throw yourself dramatically over it, or even lay flat down on the floor and rest your legs on it... The opportunities are endless with a chair! Cheesy

Make-up and hair: You are such a perfect pin-up - you have stunning eyebrows, a beautiful smile and your hair has the perfect length for some curls with a side parting or a little ponytail with ribbons. And don't forget the big flower behind one ear, or a little hat with netting!! As the wise craftster ladies said before me: Black eye-liner, fire-engine lipstick and, may I add, maybe a little mouche?! And be sure to enhance those perfect "wing-y" eyebrows too (eyebrow pencil or shadow)! Wink

Hmmm... I could go on and on... Sorry! I think the best advice in the end might be: Look for inspiration on the web, involve your trusty friends, pose, play and have fun!!!
