1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Boxer costume on: February 26, 2012 05:16:28 AM
So, in my country it is traditional to dress up for a holiday called Pust which is at the same time as the Carnival in Venice. That means some time in February or March. This year I decided to throw a party and dress up as a boxer.
I went for a bit of a clownish look.
The costume was really simple. I had the boxing gloves already and only needed a few more things. So I went to the thrift store and found the perfect black satin harem pants and a white satin dressing gown/bathrobe. Then I added a striped red and white tee.
I painted my face with white grease paint and then played with lipstick and black eyeshadow. I think it turned out great.

 Thanks for looking! Comments much appreciated!

Such a great colour!  I love that deep blue *______________*

btw. how did you stiffen the fabric?

Thanks Smiley Hmm I used an old yoga mat, cut out two pieces and lined them (does this make sense?) Thats why it is stiff and also protects my laptop from damage.
By the way the fabric is some sort of jeans.

Thank you Smiley I found this way of fastening in an old sewing book.

I bought a new computer and started searching for a sleeve. I didn't like what they had in the store and looked around a bit. After figuring out what I want I made a sketch, measured my laptop, rummaged around my mothers scrap fabric box and came up with this:

I used an old camping mat so it is really soft. At first I had to really force my laptop inside, but now a day later it is already much easier. So I guess it just needs to stretch a tiny bit.
Comments much appreciated!

P.S.: the sleeve found a new use! I mean my cat found a new use for it Smiley But I still need it! I guess she wants a pillow.

8  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Poison Ivy! on: April 11, 2011 07:58:40 AM
This year for Pust (which is like halloween, but in spring). I think it could be Mardi Gras...  Anyway I went as Poison Ivy, because I too am an eco-terrorist Smiley It was really easy I only had to buy a new wig. I had green tights, black legwarmers, black underpants(yay for superheroes and their silly habits!) and a corsage. I just sewed ivy on everything. That was not a very good idea, because I withered and had to fix everything for the second party (I went out on saturday and then tuesday). But it was extremly eco friendly. I just composted the branches when it was over Smiley
It isn't a movie version and not an exact comic book version.
Not everybody knew who I was though. And because of my height (or the emount of makeup? and the wig?) people actually asked me if I was a guy or a girl. How rude!
Anyway, to the pics!

this is the afterparty photo, the wig as you can see is already messed up. And because my black turtleneck was in a bad state I had to wear a red one. And it doesn't look quite as nice T_T Please excuse the silly faces I make.

Here you can see what the wig was like before I ruined it. And the black turtleneck. But I guess I do look a bit like a drag queen.
I am sorry for not taking closeup photos of the ivy. It looked really good.

Thanks for looking!

I made this for a friend who is a Death note fan. She especially likes Mello and Matt. So here are the pics Smiley
I drew them on cardboard and cut them out.

She liked it very much Smiley

10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Painted chairs - picture heavy on: September 03, 2010 07:21:32 AM
Hi! I don't know if this is the right place to post my chairs, but that doesn't really matter. I can change it later if I have to. So, I bought these in Ikea and had fun with them. Anyway here are the pictures:

The colors are wrong and you can't see the details (and there is a lot of them!), but it is hard to take a good picture in a hurry. Smiley
