I absolutely love this!  I have that exact pattern lying around somewhere (likely buried in a giant tub under fabric and notions  XD), so I know what one of my summer projects will be!  Is it lined? 
22  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / A Few Costumes of Years Past on: April 21, 2010 05:51:15 PM
So, this is my first post of my work to Craftster despite having lurked here for well over a year.   Lips sealed  I'm twitchy and a little shy, what can I say?  LOL.  I'm almost constantly making things, but I never remember to take pictures in the process, etc. and then I don't want to post just the finished product.  Well, I'm finally buckling down to do it by showing off three of the costumes I've made.  It's taking a lot to ignore how bad they are because I've really improved on my sewing skills.  XD

Slymenstra Hymen from GWAR

I made this for Halloween 2007.  It's the chick that used to be part of the shock rock band GWAR.  The entire thing is made from materials I got at Wal-Mart and threw together in less than 6 hours.  The boots were already a part of my closet.  The armor is entirely made of white posterboard which I cut, folded, stapled, and then spraypainted to make look like metal.  It's built on a plain black bra.

Zatanna Zatara of DC Comics

Zatanna is probably one of my favorite comic book characters.  Since this picture was taken in August of 2008 this costume has gone through several changes.  The jacket is now scrapped, the sleeves of the tuxedo shirt have been taken up, and I'm in the market for a new top hat as the old one is about to cave in on itself.  Hopefully by Origins Game Fair this June, I'll have a yellow cummerbund to replace the vest as well.  The shoes aren't visible, but I wear knee-high black vinyl boot spats over black heels.

Gijinka Lickitung of Pokemon

Lickitung is one of my favorite Pokemon (though I can't figure out why since it kinda sucks in battle).  I made this in 2008 as well.  It's all jersey fabric and an altered Simplicity pattern whose number is lost to the ages.  The part I love most about this is the visor, which the tongue is actually attached to.  Smiley  The gentlemen on either side of me are from the Pokemon fan-band Ultraball.

Thanks for looking!  Hopefully I can get some more recent works up soon.  Smiley

This is gorgeous!  It's almost like you stepped out of a fantasy novel and into real life.  Smiley  Also, in a couple of those pictures you look almost dead-on like Claire from Lost.  I about flipped when the pictures loaded.  XD
24  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Re: Harry Potter - Ravenclaw Handbook on: April 21, 2010 05:26:14 PM
I absolutely adore this!  It must have taken you ages to get all of the information for the pages sorted out and then put where it belonged.

This is easily one of THE most creative HP crafts I've ever seen!  All the tiny details with the picture and flowers plus your explanation are absolutely wonderful.  Smiley
26  COOKING / Dessert / Re: My Aipom Pokemon Cake! (And a rat cake) on: April 21, 2010 05:05:42 PM
That looks amazing!  Cheesy  I have a hard time believing that this is only your second cake.

Also, I'm jealous of your bf's epic Snorlax shirt.
27  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Comicbook Underbust Corset on: March 16, 2010 10:56:49 AM
I love this!  I would definitely invest in one, particularly if it were Green Arrow comics.  On a semi-unrelated side note: I have the issue you got the back from, with the little boy in the cross t-shirt.  XD
28  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Super Long Goth Hat *Pattern Included* on: February 16, 2010 03:23:25 PM
What an excellent pattern!  I bet it's going to make for some awesome stashbuster projects.  *glances at overflowing yarn basket*  Perhaps I should take my own advice.

And he is a cutie!  You'll have to keep up updated as to how many Craftster ladies seek him out.  XD
29  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Geeky Tee Recons! Death Note, Star Wars, Zelda, MGS on: June 09, 2009 12:35:24 PM
Yay, geeky recons!  I always feel like such a dork because my re-con bag is filled with Transformers, Call of Duty, Zelda, and anime convention t-shirts, but this gives me hope!  I really love the Metal Gear tank.  I wish my Hot Topic carried those shirts.  Cry
30  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: "Thanks for driving me to the store Mom " shirt/dress on: March 30, 2009 12:24:13 PM
As soon as I read L.E.I. and "deconstructed" I knew exactly what shirts you were talking about.  XD  I've worked at Wal-Mart for far too long.

Anyway, I love this!  Your version definitely looks better than what's in the store, and I love the printed message.  Never been a big fan of plain shirts.
