1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Utena inspired tote bag on: November 18, 2009 05:43:42 PM

I made an utena inspired bag, I decided on the starry outside for the whole otherworldly feel of the series, the uncertainty of adolescence and the duel arena at night. I put an applique Chu-Chu, just because he's awesome.

Size ref pic, this bag is rather large.

Close up of Chu-Chu. He's my first applique.

The inside pattern, it reminds me of stained glass and roses - perfect for Utena.
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Hyenas! (Bud and Lou from Batman: The Animated Series) on: November 18, 2009 05:11:55 PM
I made these for the fantastic Batman Swap. These are actually some of the first plushies I've attempted and I had sooooo much help from angelcallie, who basically came up with the pattern on the fly and taught me the fantastic ladder stitch.

They are also very large, I had to find a special box just to make sure they made it!

My dogs were rather concerned with these two, too bad I don't have pics of that...

Hind shot for the tail and the hind leg, I love the way the back leg looks.


I ended up using a whole bag of stuffing for these guys and they are just the right amount of squishy. My partner absolutely loved them - so totally worth it!

Thanks for looking!
3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Top 4 on Onemanga swap - Naruto, One piece, Bleach, and Fullmetal Alchemist on: October 30, 2009 01:37:13 AM
So I was longing for another swap to keep my mind off the Jan/Feb blues and my friend and I came up this idea: A swap centered on the top four mangas read right now. (We used onemanga as a guide but I think pretty much these are the top all around consistantly.)

So the swap would be:

One Piece
Fullmetal Alchemist

It would prolly be a 6 point swap (I'm certainly open to discussion on this.) And during the cold winter months of January and February. I just figure that the free time opens up a little bit during January and February, exams/school are slacking a bit and we need something to look forward to doing.

Any takers?
4  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / L (from Death Note) keychain on: September 08, 2009 12:42:40 PM
I made a keychain of L for Alessandro Juliani (who I met at DragonCon.) I only have one pic and I'm sorry for the poor quality.

Obviously, he's made with clay. The face is drawn on with ink (sharpie ftw!) and I used leather cord to attach him to the key ring.

(He really liked it. Yay!)
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pirate themed tote bag 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:

6  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Revolutionary Girl Utena Coffin Box 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.

Left side.

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
7  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / L from Death Note Figurine - Now with a picture! 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

Hi, I'm Chelsea. My friend angelcallie showed me this site. And then I found clay. So here I am!

My main medium is clay. Though I'm sure I'll branch out soon enough. Currently, my projects are fanart.(Fanclay? Fan sculpture.) I look forward to getting better in my crafting and being inspired by all the awesome projects on here.
