2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / ke$ha homeade style on: October 31, 2010 07:36:46 PM
for my second night of halloween i decided to be ke$ha. what better way to celebrate halloween as a crazy waste case. ironically i did next to no drinking but it was still fun. the only thing store bought is the "onesie" from deb for 4 bucks. added glitter and studs for the $, holed up tights, sewed up faux fur vest and a bunch of random bracelets.. and of course my toothbrush to brush my teeth with a bottle of jack

3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / scrabble board costume! on: October 31, 2010 07:27:50 PM

i used ribbon to make the grid of the board and glued it with no sew on to a tan dress purchased at the salvation army for 1.99. for the game pieces and tiles i drew them and covered them with tape to lamanate in case of rain. i made the ruffles out of extra fabric i had around. glued cardboard letters on to tights (while they were on, hurt coming off haha) had a lot of fun!

closer upper. and my sister as elliot from et!

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Skirt out of old prom dress..first recon project! on: September 14, 2010 09:27:22 PM
Inspired by the "new dress a day" girl, I've taken to my closet to recon my old prom dress which I haven't had the heart to get rid of over the past 6 years :X. I loved the pattern and wanted to do something with it. Here is the only pic I could find of the dress before I butchered it...The bottom belled out and had a bunch of tulle under it. I cut off the belled out bottom and hand sewed the sides since sewing machines scare me. Experience in 6th grade..haha. This is my end product and I plan on wearing it out this weekend!

The beauty of it is I still have the top part I plan to hem up, and sweetheart the neckline and wear as a cocktail dress. Which.. I have to learn how to do.
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / 'Rainbow' grad party/birthday party--need ideas aye on: May 28, 2006 07:07:42 AM
Okay. For my graduation party/21st birthday/going away I want to have a white and rainbow type theme for my colors. I saw the idea in some teen magazine. They had all white furniture(just cheap or free crap spray painted or covered in white material) and everything else rainbow. Like they separated Skittles into bowls as some foods and a bunch of other candies and on the bar they had different colored drinks in a row creating a rainbow and colored lights. I know thats what I want it to look like...part is going to be outside and it will probably go into the family room that leads into my back yard as well in case of rain or just extreme heat. I don't want anything too lame though cause I'm old now.. yikes. So I was looking for some more mature games or things to do with my guests. I need a cheap way to make a bar too.. nothing huge.. just something to hold some bottles and a blender to make pretty colored drinks. As for dress code.. my friends blow so its pretty much out the window.. I would love to do something a little more dressy considering I wont see a lot of them for a while.. if ever again since most of them are going away too. I saw an idea for one of the hollywood parties of taking a video camera and taping things during the party and later making it into a dvd to send out to everyone and I loved it. I could pay my brother to do that during it... but as for that I'm out of ideas. For the materials all I really need is white materials...some random shaped clear bowls..paper lanterns (is there a thread on how to make them?).. and the bar which I need to make.. Any input would be great.. Thanks
7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / The Academy Is tote bag.. first post yikes on: July 12, 2005 12:48:48 PM
I've been lurking for awhile, this is my first post, so I apologize ahead of time if I screw anything up. I'm pretty new to stenciling and I was in need of some feedback on the tote bag I made. It was one of those ugly plain tote things, and it was dyed pink ages ago. I took a tshirt from the Academy is site and since my printer is busted I had to tape a piece of freezer paper to my screen and trace it then go on with ironing and painting. Added some lame stars and took the insides of the stars I cut out and put them on the handle and sponged over them for an inverted effect. I have no clue how to post a picture so I'll just put the link.. http://community.webshots.com/photo/204501989/392022117JvBuVd
