1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: black watch tartan kilt on: January 01, 2009 05:37:29 PM
Well done! I'm thinking about incorporating the black watch tartan into my wedding somehow, but not entirely sure how yet, unless my brothers decide to wear it.

If only I could convince my man to wear a kilt for our wedding!

Unfortunately, part of the trick with painting red is with the prep work.

1. Make sure you have the right combo of paint. For instance, if you were painting latex over oil, you need to make sure to use a primer, otherwise, the latex paint has a hard time adhering to the oil paint. You can tell if your base is Oil by painting a small portion of the wall with latex paint. Once dry, scratch it with your fingernail. If the paint comes off, then it's latex over oil.
2. When painting with red, it goes a hell of a lot smoother if you prime with a primer specifically made for red paint (generally, they look pink). It saves you from doing a billion coats.
3. Always make sure each coat is fully dry before doing the next.
4. When removing tape, make sure the paint is completely dry, but also make sure that you don't wait too long to remove it, or it'll be hell coming off.

Hey all!

Just got my second one!

Inspired by the symbolism that bees have and Tori Amos' The Beekeeper album.

Wow. You are fantastic! I'm definitely adding you on LJ. I am a tribal bellydancer (with some background in Egyptian/Caberet) and am getting into costuming as well.

I especially love the gold set with the pink skirt. It's lovely and pretty. The purpleish coin set is stunning. I also really like how colourful your tribal set it. I look forward to seeing more of your work!

Hey all Smiley

Just got mine yesterday. My sister and I wanted matching tattoos in honour of our family and to inspire us to get throught the hard times. My family has had to deal with a whole lot of badness over the last few years. (To sum up: Cancer x 7, Death x 3, House Fire, broken bones, broken hearts) So, we each got our family clan motto of "Sans Peur" or "Without Fear" in Gaelic (Gan Eagla), just below the nape.

We wanted something feminine, but not too girly. We wanted something with presence. Something that was strong, but not cartoony.

Here's what we got:

I'm the one on the right.

9  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Now you're a man! Spandex Orgazmo Costume (NSFW) on: November 03, 2007 09:27:23 AM
Hi all! Hope this doesn't offend anyone!

Every year, there is an event here in Ottawa at a local bar called "The Witches Gathering". I've been attending for 5 years now. Last year, my buddy Tyler informed me that he and our friend Sandy were going to go as Orgazmo and Choda Boy from the comedy movie, Orgazmo (http://imdb.com/title/tt0124819/). As the time approached, Sandy asked my help in putting together his costume.

We bought an old Superman pattern off of e-bay and were dismayed to discover it was ripped and incomplete. So, using Sandy as my model, and one of his old t-shirts, I designed my own top half to his spandex unitard, Sandy made the fiberglass Orgazmarater, and did half the sewing himself. I also helped Tyler with his Choda Boy costume, though he did the majority of the work.

Now, to share our combined efforts. They ended up winning Crowd Favourite btw Smiley

That's me in the middle Cheesy

They won!!

FYI, the Orgazmarator had flashing lights too. Sandy wired and fabricated the whole thing Cheesy
