1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Rin from Inu Yasha on: April 27, 2012 04:08:40 PM
For AnimeNext '12, I decided to join a group of cosplayers who are cosplaying from the anime Inu Yasha.
So, I wanted to go as Rin since my Sesshomaru was tall and I'm tiny compared to the other cosplayers.
My friend and I sewed the kimono with a sewing machine, by following a pattern.
Then I hand-sewed every orange square on, and drew the green bubbles onto the kimono.
The green obi was already made from another cosplay I made.

I went to Hatsume Fair '12 in Florida this past March as Rin, and won the "Best Novice" Costume Award. Smiley

christy_christian: Thank you! Cheesy

aisy: haha I saw that you liked it on facebook.
I would love to do something like that, but unfortunately I am graduating this December. =[
I feel that my sewing is sub-par, since I sew by hand, and that my cutting skills and measuring on that dress are uneven...
but I'm just a beginner in sewing. =P
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Drabby Long Dress into Cute Short Dress! IMG HEAVY on: September 12, 2011 01:16:13 PM
So I went to Salvation Army
and I found this long dress that didn't have much of a shape.
And it was pretty long on me.

So I decided to cut it and add a belt that I had laying around.

Sorry for the bad photos.
This is what happens when you live in a dorm room. xD

Hope you enjoyed looking at it! Cheesy
4  COOKING / Dessert / First Attempt at Rainbow Cake and Rainbow Cupcakes on: July 17, 2011 01:47:52 PM
Since our family are "hippies", my mom and I wanted to make rainbow cake or cupcakes for our friends that we are going to hang out with on August 9, so this was our first attempt at making them. So last night, having cabin fever, I decided to make my own version of the Rainbow cake that my mom and I loved looking at on here.
We didn't want to make a terribly big cake because we wouldn't be able to finish it all, so I only got myself 1 cake box mix of Duncan Hines White Cake Mix, and one tub of vanilla icing from America's Choice.

So we started out, mixing the batter together, and then dividing the layers into bowls by wieght (9oz. was perfect for our four small heart pans). We then used food coloring (For the purple we used Betty Crocker Neon Gel Food Colors, and for the red/yellow/blue we used McCormick Assorted Food Colors and Egg Dye). We were able to make the four layers, and our light purple stayed a light purple! We were excited. Then we realized that we had a lot of batter left over in the bowl, so we used green color dye in that, and made 6 rainbow cupcakes in addition.

In the morning, we "dirty iced" the cake, and then put it into the fridge for 2 hours, and then completely covered the cake in the icing. But I feel that it didn't completely cover the cake, because we wanted to make it that nice smooth finish that we see on other cakes on this site.

And so, here are our results! Cheesy

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Big t-shirt turned into cute tunic! =] on: February 12, 2011 01:51:53 PM
Yes so.
I went to Salvation Army (again. I love that store.)
And I found this adorable light blue and navy blue top.
But it was big on me, and didn't flatter me well.

And so,
I took off the sleeves, and sewed on ties so I can tie it in the back.
And it became this:

And so, It took me only 20 minutes to reconstruct it. =]

Heylo people of Craftster.org/forum!

I am back from a long leave of absence.
Not to worry, I was just lurking.

And finding something to reconstruct.

On Wendesday I went to the salvation army at my college...
And I found this boring dress.

And I realized, if I just hemmed it, that it would look so much more flattering!

Sorry for the pictures. They're a bit big...

Aha. Well I really should thank YOU Darwingsfrg.
You were the one who made my mother inspited to want us to make the cupcake.

So thank you.

And thank you for telling me that I did a great job.
Oddly enough, after that, we didn't use the giant cupcake...
Maybe we'll get it out for my 20th birthday who knows?
It sure can feed many...
