Challenge/Battle/Alert: June Battle Royale - Romance
Team/Ninja: Of Ships & Men
Project Geekdom (if any): Disney
Bonus Points: Nerdy
Project Name: Paper Plane Necklace
Project Page Link (if available): N/A
Brief Description: Last-minute battle royale submission again! Yay! This necklace was inspired by Disney's animated short, Paperman, which is the current Oscar winner for best short film. The short depicts a man and a woman who meet on their morning commute, but go their separate ways. The man happens to notice the woman in a building across the street, and folds hundreds of paper planes to try to get her attention. It's all in black and white, except for the woman's lips and lipstick, which are red - which is why I chose a grey and red swarovski heart to go with the paper plane charm. The paper plane charm I painted the lipstick print on with red enamel. This was a pretty fast and easy project.

Yeah so I'm a teeeeny tiny bit late. ^^' I hope I do this right...let me know if I need to change anything. Smiley

Challenge/Battle/Alert: May Battle Royale: Pirates vs. Ninjas
Team: Of Ships and Men
Project Geekdom (if any): Pirates of the Caribbean
Bonus Points: Nerdy Super Bonus! This is inspired by the nerdydom Pirates of the Caribbean, which happens to be in my team scope (of Ships & Men). This is also the first human plush that I've made, and I used several new techniques, including painting on fleece, creating clothes with no pattern, and sewing the hair by using masking tape to hold it in place and sewing through it initially, and then sewing that "wig" onto the plush and styling it.
Project Name: Captain Jack Sparrow Plush
Project Page Link (if available): (none yet, I may get around to posting this tomorrow or Sunday)
Brief Description: This is unashamedly inspired by speakgeekandenter's amazing plushies! This has been on my "50 crafts in 2013" list since the beginning of the year (along with some others). The pattern is the Baby London Star tutorial. I used fleece for the body and various cottons for the clothes. The hair is some yarn I picked up at Michaels specifically for Jack. I didn't sew it on one strand at a time, but sewed all of the strands in a row to masking tape (which I then pulled off) and then sewing that "wig" to the head. I painted the face on using acrylics mixed with fabric medium.
