1  Reverse French with Stars! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by fishgurll on: July 14, 2012 09:58:09 PM
I really wanted to try the reverse French manicure that keeps popping up on pintrest and yesterday when I was all ready to go... I discovered that I didn't have any round stickers. What I did have was stars!

I kinda like it... Did it work? Smiley

2  Dragons! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by fishgurll on: February 24, 2012 06:18:48 PM
So. Friends of ours had a baby recently and for him... I made a dragon! I didn't have a pattern, so I just made it up, he's a little wonky, but it adds to his charm I think.

Thanks for looking Smiley

3  A Very Harry Bouquet in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by fishgurll on: August 15, 2011 08:47:07 PM
My boyfriend and I are getting married at the beginning of next year and I've been playing with ideas for a non-plant bouquet. There are lots of beautiful ideas out there for fabric and paper flowers so I decided to try this one  http://www.100layercake.com/blog/2011/07/22/diy-storybook-paper-roses/

Nothing seemed more appropriate than Harry Potter for me, so I used a thrift-store copy of Philosopher's Stone.

Hope you guys enjoy - lemme know what you think?

4  Re: EDWARD CULLEN! in Halloween Costumes by fishgurll on: November 06, 2009 05:40:56 PM
Thank you all for the kind words, I'm so glad you all appreciated it!

I know some of you asked - for the costume we used a sh!t ton of glitter on his skin, the eyebrows are of course felt and I cut a ladies wig to get that perfect Rob Pattinson 'spike-poof'. This is what he actually looks like...

(Yes, we are dressed as Death Eaters but that's pretty representative of our natural 'look')

And! Yes - I did make my own costume too  Cheesy - here's a full shot:

Its Cleopatra-ish despite my lack of skin pigment

Anyway thanks again everyone!!!

5  EDWARD CULLEN! in Halloween Costumes by fishgurll on: November 05, 2009 10:03:56 PM
I mentioned in another thread that my boyfriend requested that we dress him up in an outrageous Edward Cullen costume and here are the results...

All sparkly and pretty

Sniffing me like I'm his "personal brand of heroin"

A couple girls at the party who really liked his felt eyebrows

It turned out great and he was a big hit - thanks for looking!

6  Star Trek and Harry Potter dork goodnesses! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by fishgurll on: June 29, 2009 09:08:26 PM

As promised I'm adding my most recent and so far, most favourite Trek t-shirt. Its all done with a sharpie, using a stencil to work out the placement for the lettering and drawing. For the ship I just free handed the NX-01 using a technical drawing for reference. Enjoy!

Also: I apologize for the crap quality of the photo Smiley


I recently made this for my Dad for father's day. He's a huge Trekkie (and he's passed his love onto me) and he loved it. "PROPERTY OF - STARFLEET ACADEMY - 2155 - ASTROPHYSICS DEPT."

I based it off a shirt I thought up and made for my best friend when Deathly Hallows came out. I'm wearing a Che style Snape shirt and hers says "PROPERTY OF - MAGICAL LAW ENFORCEMENT - 1995 - AUROR DEPT."

Hope you guys enjoy Smiley

8  Jack and Sally in Costumes: Completed Projects by fishgurll on: February 03, 2009 11:22:20 PM
My first post - and apparently because of the rules I cannot post my pictures yet... Eff!!

And it's a bit late, hah, considering they were my boyfriend's and my halloween costumes - but I finally tracked down some pictures, these my Dad took before we left for a party.

Everything was handmade. For Sally I started with plain white fabric in five different textures which I dyed to get my colour palate. I'm a total perfectionist and nothing I found was working for me... This way I got exactly what I wanted. I even went so far as to rip open a pen, steal the ink and add that to my pot of dye just to get the result I wanted. And of course, my need for perfection led to referencing movie stills to get the look of the dress just right.

From the front...

From the back...

I wanted the look of the legs and the arms just right (hah, naturally) so I used two pairs of white stockings and I hand sewed with wool Sally's stitches. For my face, after the makeup (and gaudy fake eyelashes - which were oh-so-fantasmo) I cut inch long pieces of wool and using the eyelash glue I stuck them to my face to match the wool stitches on my arms and legs - I totally impressed myself with that one...

Shot of my face/make-up (and Jayson being awesome in the back)...

Jayson and I together...

For the Jack Skellington side I had a lot more trouble. This was my first stab at men's clothing and I'm really glad it went as well as it did. That being said, the pants are made from scratch (where it became extremely obvious to me that boys do not have the same parts nor do they have the same overall shape as girls, eff...) and I altered a old pattern for a shirt-dress to make the jacket.

From the front...

From the back...

For the make-up I covered him with a layer of normal white make-up to protect his skin but I used black acrylic paint to get the vibrancy/opaqueness for his eyes and mouth. Mostly, I was really pleased with the result and the paint held up really well (except around the mouth... after a little partying/snogging/getting festively tanked)

Anyway... Nightmare Before Christmas is one of my boyfriend's favourite movies and naturally it was well worth all the trouble! Smiley

I hope ya'll enjoy!
