1  Silent Hill Nurse Costume! in Halloween Costumes by RENTHead_351 on: October 18, 2012 03:07:32 PM
Hey guys! Long time no craft!

I decided this year I wanted my Halloween costume to be awesome. So! I decided to make a Silent Hill nurse costume! I fell in love with the costume designs when I first saw the movie (can you blame me?! They rock!) I've been working on it on and off for the past two months, and all in all, I think it looks okay! I used a few Instructables tutorials, as well as pictures online as reference, and a lot of it was very by the seat of my pants when things didn't go how I wanted Wink Please forgive the current quality of pictures; I'll post better ones after I have a photoshoot with a friend sometime next week  Roll Eyes

The costume!


I used plaster strips from Michael's. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Hardens super fast, malleable, SUCH a pleasure to work with and cheap!

Back of the mask. It's pretty much a helmet on my head, but there is a tiny concealed nose hole, plus it's lifted a bit off my face so I CAN breathe okay! Not perfect, but I can survive!

If anyone is interested in learning about how I did it/links to sites I used, please don't hesitate to ask! I'm very proud of it Roll Eyes I know it's not perfectly like the game/movie version, but it's close enough for me! Smiley

2  Two new puppets in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by RENTHead_351 on: February 01, 2009 02:16:33 PM
I've gotten to work and made a few more puppets Smiley

This is Zeke. I think he's probably my best made puppet, tee hee.

I haven't really named this puppet yet. Her mouth gave me alot of trouble, it is slightly off, and I'm not super pleased with her. I'm thinking I might name her Muffy or something.

The two of them Smiley

I haven't really sat down to through some of the sites and stuff I was recomended, but I'm hoping I will be able to soon and get to work on improving my work Smiley

3  Painted Barbies! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by RENTHead_351 on: February 01, 2009 02:10:21 PM
We have a TON of old barbie dolls still sitting in our basement, so one night when I grew sick of trying to fix a mouth on one of my puppets, I pulled out my paint and a barbie and got to work!
I've made two (another has become an experimental one to test things on). One has a music theme, the other... I'd like to say uniqueness.
The first shot are their heads, but the next are shots of their 'naked' backs and legs, etc, and I'm not sure if those could be constituted as NSFW, so I figured I'd warn you about that. Smiley.

The music one isn't sealed yet, so she photographed a little easier. The purple one has glitter and is modge podged over already, so I appologize for the diffaculty in reading her. She has ways I thought you could be unique all over her body, such as: 'Be joyous', 'believe in inner-beauty', and 'smile.'

Back shots. The quote on the music doll is from William Shakespeare: 'If music be the food of love; play on.'

Their legs. Time sigures are around the music barbie's ankles

Body shots Smiley

I'm hoping this is the best place to put these, as they're not exactly meant to be played with, but are dolls all the same...
Thanks for looking!

4  My puppet friends :) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by RENTHead_351 on: January 17, 2009 11:05:01 AM
I made these guys a while ago, back in the summer, and am just getting around to posting about them now, hehe.
Anyway, meet my first puppets: Screamo, and Slap Pappy.

This is Screamo. He's... Afraid of everything. He's even afraid of Edward, silly Screamo.  He wears his sign, stating, 'It's the end of the world (as we know it), and 'the end is near!' to warn people of the incoming dangers.


The one on the left, is Slap Pappy. He was my first attempt at stuffing puppet arms, and... When he runs, they fly out to his sides. Hence his name.
They arn't perfect, and I learned alot from making them; like, I need to be much more careful when cutting and gluing so things don't fray/come out uneven  Roll Eyes However, my cousins have a blast playing with them when they visit, so I guess they're good enough for them!
Thanks for looking Smiley

5  One person's junk... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by RENTHead_351 on: December 07, 2008 10:03:58 AM
Can make a pretty awesome purse!

A bit of backstory. In science we have to make something to hold a report on enviromental issues in out of recycled stuff, things you would normally throw out, etc. But I couldn't just stick with the report-cover-out-of-a-cereal-box, oh no! I'm a craftster! I needed something that would stand out (hopefully!) I got a pile of wrappers from my aunt's house, two rolls of tape, and got to work.
Two hours or so later, I had this:


Inside, honestly the best picture I could get. The back of chip wrappers isn't the easiest thing to photograph.


The body is chocolate bar wrappers, the inside is two chip bags (Silver side up) and the flap is a chip bag as well. The button is a soda pop bottle cover with two hole poked into it, and the handles, what the cover is 'sewed' on with and the strings holding it down is a cut-up plastic bag. I know that won't hold it well, but I wanted most of it to be recycled, except for the tape, of course Smiley And I probably won't be using it much outside of the project. I'd need to make a stronger one. I learned alot through this one, anyway!

Thanks for looking! Cheesy

EDIT: I finally got it back, and I got 100% Cheesy

6  "Singin' our song! All day long, at HOGWARTS!!!" in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by RENTHead_351 on: October 15, 2008 04:04:56 PM
What do you do when you're bored and have just watched a few videos by Neil and Emmy Cicierega and the rest of the Potter Puppet Pals people? Why, you make your own Potter Puppet Pals stage, of course!

It amuses me. Except for the fact that the first batch of people (Snape, Harry and Ron) Burned a bit. And Hermione's hair isn't quite the right color. Sigh.
The stage is clayed with tinfoil inside, and the characters stand up with the help of toothpicks and holes in the bases Tongue

Voldemort, Voldemort, oh, Voldy-Voldemort!

There's even a stand in the back for Harry and his angst!

Altogether. Thanks for looking!

7  My first attempt at modge podged pendant things (Non blurry photos!) in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by RENTHead_351 on: October 11, 2008 05:12:07 PM
So, while I was out today among other crafty things I picked up some modge podge to try making pendants with pictures on it. Modge podge is offically my favoritest thing of the week! It dries so fast and works sooo well! I'm impressed. Anyway, on to my pictures!

Front, a howling (were)wolf...


I've recently been introduced to the musical "Notre Dame De Paris". I love it, to put it mildly. So, there's the church.

The back is the title of a song. It means 'It's the time of Cathedrals (Can't spell it in english Tongue) With the window from the church.



Front (It's Hansel and Gretel, hehe)


Anyway these pictures are sooo much better. I thank tigerita for teaching me a bit about my camera Smiley

8  Bella's Bracelet in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by RENTHead_351 on: October 04, 2008 09:59:03 AM
Here's the bracelet I made to wear to the Breaking Dawn release party, obviously about two months back... They didn't come out as good as I had hoped, and I'll probably make a better one, eventually.

This is the bracelet, as modeled by my lovely mother while she did her crafting (She crochets and cross stitches Tongue)

My wrist is just larger than the bracelet, so I tied it with black ribbon. I still think it looks okay this way Smiley

None of the individual pictures of the charms were clear, so I guess I'll get some eventually...
Still can't get any, but a better pic of the whole bracelet on my very messy dining room table  Roll Eyes

 What do you think??

9  Two little monkeys... :) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by RENTHead_351 on: September 27, 2008 02:48:27 PM
After seeing xperimentl's post showing her fuzzy sock monkeys, I decided I had to make a few sock monkeys of my own Smiley

My two monkeys!

My first monkey. It's arms were uneven, so I sewed them together so you souldn't see as much. Shh... Tongue So it just sort of looks like it's clasping it's hands together, or praying, if you'd like. Haha. The black bits arn't part of it, they're just bits from my other monkey that didn't get brushed off after my cousin was playing with my sewing things Smiley

My halloween sock monkey. It does have a nose and mouth, just not very visible. I'm not very good at faces. Hm.


They were my first attempt at sock monkeys, hehe.... . I'd love comments or whatever! Oh, apparently the pictures will stay rotated now...? On my computer at least.

10  A few more ornaments and a fairy! in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by RENTHead_351 on: September 17, 2008 05:11:39 PM
Here are a few more things I've created Smiley

My camera wasn't behaving so some of these pictures are blurry... This one is my arrogant fairy. If I can get a better picture I'll post it. I love her, even if she isn't the best... I think she was my first attempt at a fairy...? Anyway, as soon as I get my craft room cleaned she'll probably keep me company there Smiley

Another ballerina, like my angel.

A dinosaur

A few little sushi plates. I'm not exactly sure if they look authentic, as I don't really eat sushi, but I like them still.

That's about it for now! Thanks for having a look Smiley
