Thank you so much for all the comments! Yeah, to the uninitiated Wink it does look like a skunk - even though skunks have 2 stripes.... ah well. I'll just have to live with it.

Oh, and @roccstarr: Almost! *grin* I'm very easily bribed with freshly made hot chocolate...as long as he doesn't pour it on the floor and mix it with ostrich egg
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Not a skunk on: January 28, 2010 10:34:27 AM

So, it's my boyfriend's birthday on Sunday. Ever since we started sharing a bed, he's been calling me "badger" because of the "mwroooarrrr" sound I make waking up. When we went to my parents' house one weekend, I decided to show him "The gods must be crazy II", my mostest favoritest movie of all time (well, almost. Right behind Monty Python and the Holy Grail. But I digress).


There is a major scene with a honey badger in it. And that was it. Apparently, I am the exactly same thing, a creature equal parts droll, aggressive, fixated, and affectionate. So he expanded my nickname to honey badger. I'm working on my thesis now and don't know how long we'll be in the same city, so I decided to make him a stuffed honey badger to cuddle with while I'm away. (He's using MY Stitch stuffed toy right now, for anyone who might think I'm turning him into a big old softie *g*). It's my first stuffed animal, no pattern used no nothing. Because the fur was relatively expensive, I'd originally thought to do a mockup first, but then winged it instead (probably because I know I wouldn't have the patience to do another one "for real" once the mockup was done). All I did was sketch out the silhouette and then construct the black fur around the longish white piece. The tongue is lopsided, and the eyes are a bit cross-eyed, but considering I did this in one afternoon and that the eyes are the only store-bought thing, he better like it. I sort of know what to do better next time, e.g. make claws and give a bit more form to his tail, but C&C greatly appreciated!

Those reconstructions are gorgeous. I want all of them, but the glow-in-the-dark one and the moon one have to be my favorites. I wish I was better with a needle (and jersey fabric) to do this to my t-shirts,too

That is one cool dress. Would never have pegged it as a nursing dress; it definitely goes into my "future projects" folder for when I'll be needing one. Well done!
9  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Rabbit of Caerbannog on: November 02, 2009 05:33:01 AM

So this year I decided to be the Monster of Caerbannog, from Monty Python's Holy Grail movie. I got the idea because of the bunny ears tutorial from threadbanger (sometime in May, I think).

The costume wasn't particularly hard to make; the furry ears, then some armwarmers and legwarmers of the same fur (not pictured). On the night of the party, copious amounts of black makeup and stage blood, black fingernails, a t-shirt with "Caerbannog University" + hand grenade on it, vampire fangs and I was ready to go. Bonus for no cold ears and warm hands throughout the night (yay!). I did make the cap on the large side, so I was forever adjusting it, but two bobby pins donated by a kind witch kept it in place.

Everyone kept asking me if I was the bunny in Donnie Darko, but I guess I didn't show up with a little headless doll of a knight, so they're excused.
10  California / California: South / Craft supermarkets in San Diego (Hobby Lobby?) on: September 17, 2009 07:32:41 AM
Hey everyone;

I'll be in San Diego for all of two days next week and direly need to stock up on crafting supplies. (So much cheaper than in Europe). Is there something like a Hobby Lobby in San Diego? I know I should take the time to root out the smaller ones, but I'm on a budget and a strict itinerary. Could anyone please help me out?
