11  Re: Easy Peasy 2 Swap Gallery!!! in The Swap Gallery by RevolutionaryGirl on: June 01, 2009 02:02:39 PM
I'm so glad everyone (mostly my partner) loves the sketchbook. There are so many great things in this gallery. I'm glad I can be a part of it.

Anyway, to cheer up a rather blah Monday, I received!

I got an apron! My partner themed it off of Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book, which is currently my favorite. She embroidered a quote from the book onto it:

Adding to the theme an adorable pocket:

The fabric attaching the pocket is a cute cherry one!

My pics don't do it justice and there's no one available to take the pic of me wearing it. (So if you have nicer pics feel free to add, Megan.)  But it fits well and I can't wait to cook something with it on! Thank you so much Megan! It's been a wonderful first swap!  Grin

12  Pirate themed tote bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by RevolutionaryGirl on: April 29, 2009 11:38:01 AM
For my sister's birthday I made her a pirate themed tote bag. This was both my first tote bag and first time on a sewing machine. I had a lot of help from my friend. I really like how it came out.

Some pics:

14  Revolutionary Girl Utena Coffin Box in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by RevolutionaryGirl on: April 01, 2009 01:34:03 PM
One of my favorite fictional characters is Utena from Revolutionary Girl Utena. Here's a summary from Wikipedia:

The main character is Utena Tenjou, a tomboyish teenage girl who was so impressed by a kind prince in her childhood that she decided to become a prince herself (expressed in her manner of dress and personality). She attends Ohtori Academy, where she meets a student named Anthy Himemiya, a girl who is in an abusive relationship with another student. Utena fights to protect Anthy and is pulled into a series of sword duels with the members of the Student Council. Anthy is referred to as the "Rose Bride" and is given to the winner of each duel. As Anthy is thought to be the key to a coming revolution, the current champion is constantly challenged for the right to possess the Rose Bride.

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revolutionary_Girl_Utena I highly recommend this anime, even if a lot of it is WTF moments.

So I made a box inspired by Utena.  Grin

An explanation: The white rose, Utena's duelist rose, is taking over the coffin in which Anthy/The Rose Bride is trapped in. The sword is the sword Utena uses in the duels, also taken over by Utena's influence. The roses on the outside represent the other duelists Utena has to defeat in order to bring about the revolution. I decided to use a lot of symbolic work as the anime itself works the same way.

And now more pictures!

Prebake for the bottom. I just really wanted a picture.

The bottom, I really like the lining. Prebake.

A more detailed picture of the lid.

So you can get a look at the bottom of the sword. I'm ridiculously proud of how the Sword of Dios come out.

Rose detail pics!

Top of coffin.

Right side.

One more pic, for good luck:

All baked! Whee!

Yay, first challenge project is done! Hope you like it and thanks for looking!  Cheesy

15  L from Death Note Figurine - Now with a picture! in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by RevolutionaryGirl on: March 26, 2009 09:47:17 PM
It's my first time using clay since fourth grade. I decided to make one of my favorite characters from Death Note: L!

I pretty proud of him. He's not perfect but I like it.

Link to my deviant art page for pic, cause I'm new and haven't posted enough.  Roll Eyes

His head and hair took forever. Next sculpture will be someone with normal hair. Or no hair.
The rocks are there to keep him upright while baking. He'll be riding in my car from now.  Grin
