1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Never Knitted, but would like to learn to make this... on: November 16, 2010 08:29:48 PM
I have tried to teach myself to knit but didn't know what I was doing, but watching some youtube videos I am getting some confidence built back up. I would like to make a Hat for my Fiance that looks like this:

My Fiance, (very much like Seth Rogen) has a huge head and a mop full of curly hair... and it is hard to find hats for him, so I thought I could make him one.

All I know is that I'd need a set of round knitting needles... but have no clue as what to do to go about making this hat a reality, so I was wondering if anyone had any begginers tips. Or if I should just keep this project for a later date and just start on scarves.... Though I'm pretty strong willed when I set my mind to something, I just don't want to get in over my head. Help!

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / It's Alright Ma (Bob Dylan Stencil Tee) on: February 27, 2010 10:09:32 PM
Since I love Bob Dylan so much and couldn't wait for the shirt that I ordered online to come in the mail, I made one to help me wait.

There was a small hole in the original tee so I sewed a heart over it ^_^

I used http://www.neitherhipnorfunky.com/?p=106 as a tutorial ^_^

I used an Image of Bob I found on the internet, and put it with text in a photo editing software

4  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Walter Kovacs/Rorschach Make- up ((WATCHMEN)) on: March 24, 2009 08:03:21 PM
Don't really know where this would go... It's kinda a costume, but not in full. It's just me in a bunch of makeup trying to looks like Walter Kovacs (a.k.a. Rorschach) from watchmen... I've determined I like dressing up lots more like guys than girls... haha So I really hope this is in the right catergory (since its not for halloween, but just for fun)

Me as Walter Joseph Kovacs from WATCHMEN, Just eye shadow and a little bit of face paint haha

This looks better if you've seen actual pictures of Jackie Earle Haley in HIS rorschach/walter costume Cheesy

Here is a pic of what I ACTUALLY look like for refference Cheesy

5  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Rorschach and Nite Owl: Handmade Watchmen Costumes on: March 06, 2009 11:31:34 AM

6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Hurm... A Rorschach Plushie - (watchmen!!) (Now finished, with hat!!) on: February 20, 2009 01:36:26 PM
Here is a plushie I made for my boyfriend for our two year anniversary. (March 25th, so I have to wait like a long time now to give it too him.... this will be really hard, seeing as how I want him to have it so much).

He loves Watchmen, and his favorite is Rorschach so I made a plushie from a pattern I found on deviantart (body and head only though, the clothes/mask I made w/out a pattern.) I painted his face and freckles and added makeup for blush and other shadows... all his clothes can come off and I still have to make his fedora, but I consider him complete as he is so I thought I'd show ya'll Cheesy

Rorschach (lovingly refered to by me as Ror Ror) is now complete with his newly finished hat. And I am completely done with him now... Now I just have to give him to the boyfriend Cheesy

Rorschach with his Sandwhich board and trench coat (without his mask), complete with his bandage on his head from prison!

Rorschach in his full costume (minus the hat)

Rorshach in his "vest" (kinda looks like pj's though), pants and scarf.

Rorschach in the nudie! Cheesy I love his freckles on his arms Cheesy

I had alot of fun making him, he is sewn completely by hand, no machine involved Cheesy
7  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Wonderland: Cheshire Cat (img hefty) on: January 09, 2009 09:22:34 PM
I got bored the other day and I've been kicking around this idea of having an Alice in Wonderland photoshoot with Lolita style dresses and cool makeup... Well I decided I'd work on the make up portion of it so I did my face up to look like the cheshire cat Cheesy I pulled my hair up into little "ears" and then took tons of pictures of myself lols Cheesy I'm happy with the result though I wish I had some purple make up Cheesy

(wasn't sure if this was the right place for this topic... but it is a costume Cheesy)
8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Little Jokey on: January 09, 2009 05:29:37 PM
Here is a little doll I made out of scrap fabric I had laying around. I've been wanting to try a doll for so long but never got around to buying peach fabric, so I made something that was all white... He is made from a pattern by the same person who made the patterns for the nekomini dolls Cheesy

The Joker:

(He'll get clothes eventually but I'm too lazy right now)

And here is a little Joker dress I made to fit a Blythe Dollie Cheesy

9  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / The Clown Prince of Gotham (My Halloween Costume!) Picture Heavy!! on: September 29, 2008 07:36:16 PM
So... I finally finished my joker costume for this years Halloween!! I made it out of clothing items from good will, re-sewing them to fit me, dyeing them, and drawing pattern on the shirt (that's why I figured it should go in Reconstructed Clothing)

Me and my brother's photography friend decided to go galavanting around town taking pictures of me in my full Joker get up... we attracted an audience and many strange looks...
Oh btw... I AM actually a girl, for those who can't tell Cheesy

Sleepy Joker!!

The Joker is around EVERY corner!!!

"Introduce a little anarchy!"

10  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / The Joker is Dry Clean Only?!!?! on: August 25, 2008 08:11:22 PM
I'm making a Joker costume for Halloween (I know it's early but I dont want to be rushed) and I bought a mans suit vest from goodwill (the kind you wear under a sports coat) and I need to dye it green... but I believe it is dry clean only, and the dye kit says I need to rinse it clean after applying the dye...

Will it ruin my vest if I get it wet?!?!? I mean if I air dry it shouldn't it be okay?!?!

I couldn't find a green one to start out... Sad so I'll experiment with dyeing it lol *nervous*
