Oh my goodness!!! I... I'm just so... Aaah, I can't even talk I'm so happy!  Cheesy

Behold the wonder that is starryeyeddiy's package!

First, the customary group shot:

The SWEETEST charm bracelet ever!

My favorite charm, with my favorite quote  Cheesy

Jareth necklace with silver leafing on the edge... How dreamy is this necklace, I mean, REALLY?

Sarah and Bluto keychain, attached to my car keys as soon as I finished taking these pictures

Cool homemade stickers, I doubt I'll be using them any time soon--they're just too cool!

Pretty journals in my favorite colors--AND they're eco friendly so I can feel good using them!

And probably my favorite of the bunch--though it was hard to pick a favorite-- a hand painted messenger bag!!

I am so in love with my package! Starryeyeddiy is an awesome partner and made this swap great--Thanks again!

2  Amigurumi Jareth Owl in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by HuricanBlue on: March 15, 2010 02:33:56 AM
Yet another crochet project for my Labyrinth swap. I just started to dive into the world of amigurumi, and I'm loving it! I naturally have a tight gauge, which causes a lot of issues with some other projects but suited this just fine.  Cheesy

I had to wing it when it came to the Jareth medallion, but it's just a triangle and a circle--nothing to write home about.  Wink

The head came out HUGE at first. Poor thing, that big head kept him from standing on his own! But in the end, he was adorable, me thinks!

Here's a link to the pdf pattern:

Thanks for looking!

4  Labyrinth Firey hat in Crochet: Completed Projects by HuricanBlue on: March 09, 2010 08:38:39 PM
Well, it's really just a mohawk hat with ears.  Wink  But I did this for a Labyrinth swap and I loved how it came out. I had my brother try it on for the head shots, mostly because he's bald and I didn't want to mail the hat with pink hair in it. ('Cus, you know... I got pink hair  Cheesy)

He's not looking too happy in that last one because I insisted on interrupting his video game to take these pictures.  Tongue

All based on this guy:

And here are some quicky wrist warmers I made to complete the setr. You know, in case she wanted to dress up while dancing to "Chilly Down." I know that's what I'd do, anyway!

5  Assassin's Creed Altair Hoodie for my lil' bro in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by HuricanBlue on: January 12, 2010 06:25:57 PM
My brothers and I have been playing Assassin's Creed I & II, trying to not be TOO competitive, but having a ball nonetheless. One thing we all have said more than once is "Man, I want Altair's hoodie!" For those who are not familiar with the game, this is what it looks like:

From AC I

So, since they ARE twins, I couldn't NOT make them both one for Christmas! They're not identical at all, so I made them a little different from each other. The one I'm posting now was altered from a 2X sweatshirt. I basically took it apart entirely and started from scratch. I refitted it to his body, added the stitching around the shoulders, made the hoodie bigger and put the pieces in the front of the hood to aid in his "eagle vision"-- If you play, you'll understand Wink I found out (AFTER I was 90% done, of course) that they don't like pullovers, so I hastily added the zippers to both on Christmas Eve  Tongue

***I realized I had a swap project on display in the background, hence the odd star placement  Roll Eyes ***

Hoodie front

And the back

The other one is pretty much the same, I just did the hoodie a little differently. I plan on making one for myself based on the second game. AC II takes place in Italy during the Renaissance, so I thought I'd go all out with the frilly details Cheesy I'll def post when I finally get around to finishing that one.

Thanks for looking!

6  Poor Scarecrow, left outside in the rain... in Halloween Decor and Parties by HuricanBlue on: December 24, 2009 02:35:57 AM
My family and I threw a huge Halloween party and to make our backyard look creepier than it already is, we made an elaborate graveyard. It was pretty awesome, I must say ;-) One of the things we did was put together a scarecrow using a tuturial we found in the book, How to Haunt Your House (AWESOME book for Halloween decorating).

So OF COURSE, I didn't take a picture of the skull beforehand, but the head was made from a solid foam skull bought on clearance some ears ago. Here's an example (mind you, the basic shape it the same, but the color and details made it look a little too cutesy for our taste):

The skull we had also had weird eyeballs that popped right out, thankfully. Anyway, I took a knife to that thing and hacked away! After making a huge mess, I used toothpicks to reposition the jaw so it looked like it was screaming. I used a paste made of equal parts water and Elmer's wood glue (wood glue, because it dried to a yellowy color--and 'cus it was what I had Wink) and glued rolled up paper towels to make the "skin". The finished product is a little hard to make out, because GENIUS that I am, I didn't think to take pictures until after I had already mounted it. We positioned some bamboo and fallen tree limbs to blend it into the background, Hopefully you can still make it out :-)

If you look closely on the bottom right, you'll see the duct-taped broken patio umbrella we used as part of the body's structure. Tongue


We liked him so much, we decided to keep him up after the party. I didn't know if the wood glue would hold, but it rained on Halloween and he survived the snowstorm we got hit with last week. It was fate. Smiley When the snow and ice melts, I may take him down to give him a tune-up and take better pictures.

7  Real Simple Headband in Crochet: Completed Projects by HuricanBlue on: December 23, 2009 01:21:11 AM
So I was bored the other night, trying to think of a gift to make my sister for Christmas. Landed on Threadbanger and saw a easy tutorial for this headband. Few hours of Adult Swim later...

I haven't decided yet if I'm gonna gift it or keep it for myself  Wink

So, I finally got a chance to pick up Padfoot's package from my ex-hubby's house (and in one piece no less!  Wink ). And I must say, I only have 3 words for my Twilight loot...

Oh. My. Goodness. Behold the goodness, people. Behold it.

A too-cute-for-words scarf that I wore out that same day:

A close-up:

Coin purse that I have dubbed my Jacob Bag:

Aaaaand the close-up:

And in this lil' bag was another adorable lil' gift:

A gorgeous choker (which I also had to wear out that night!):

And the piece that made me SQUEAL in delight:

I mean, WOW. Right?! A closeup:

I am HuricanBlue and I approve this package.

9  Sugar Skull painting in Completed Projects by HuricanBlue on: October 13, 2009 05:38:43 PM
So I had an old Dollar Tree frame sitting in the corner, all alone with a crack glass front and covered in dust. I also had a box of glass paint sitting in the closet, all alone with nothing to do. Alas, it was 2 AM and I hastily decided to marry the two so they wouldn't feel so alone and useless. And with Halloween coming up, I had my subject.

Paint was called Glassworks, I believe, and it was the kind I had to bake (Yeah, I did NOT think that through before I started to paint the skull Tongue). Luckily, the glass didn't crack anymore than it was. Oh, the skull was done with mostly acrylic paint and I painted the chipped, black frame silver.

In progress...

And VOILA... Upper right, you can see the original crack that sent the poor frame to the corner in the first place...

Those are SUPPOSED to be marigolds (kinda looks like it, right???  Undecided)...

C&C welcome... first time painting glass. It was fun, I plan on doing it again properly  Cheesy

10  Leopard/Denim Corset Belt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by HuricanBlue on: August 07, 2009 01:13:38 AM
Thumbs up for my first photo post!
I got inspiration from a Valentine's Day episode over @ Threadbanger. I used an old skirt from my favorite thrift store and an old pair of jeans for the lining. I'll probably attempt boning next time, as well as using bigger grommets--they started popping out as soon as I finished lacing it!

Thanks for viewing  Cheesy
