1  the pillbox hat (now with extra veil) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by nerdnirvana on: November 13, 2007 02:50:55 PM
so this i made for costume construction class last year, it's a white satin pillbox hat with black edging and a black pearl-accented veil. it's a little too big for my head, which is kinda depressing, but i still like it. right now it's covering a bottle on my desk in my dorm room. Cheesy

having a minimum of time and a maximum of creativity (and being a crazy art student), i make costumes that usually involve a combination of two things:
1. flowers
2. on my head.
this year, i went as frida kahlo:

last year, as a garden party:

yeah. i like things that have flowers and lights. always a good combination.

5  ramen! in Crochet: Completed Projects by nerdnirvana on: January 02, 2006 11:35:57 PM
this hat is for my FSM obsessed friend, who has been begging me to make her one since my original. it's very much like the first, although the earflaps are better, the strings that tie the earflaps aren't horrifically long (when one ties them, the meatballs won't dangle right in front of one's nether regions), there is more spaghetti and the eyeballs and meatballs are bigger. and the pic is better. AND he now has two extra long noodly appendages.

Credits for the original original always to ThatSparky.

6  horace and his pot in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by nerdnirvana on: November 27, 2005 11:36:01 PM
all plants should have names. because they're living things too, like animals.
this plant is named horace, and he lives in my bathroom.
the pot was a gift to my mother for mother's day, and she put wee horace in there, back when he was little more than a sprout from the 99 cent store. now he's thriving, and the pot is doing well too.

here's horace:

and the pot, close up:

8  i'm a fan... of ceiling fans! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by nerdnirvana on: November 26, 2005 07:33:55 PM
it was walnut-finished and ugly before:  Undecided
now it's GORGEOUS and PAINTED and MATCHES MY ROOM (which is turquoise)
1. Water blade

2. Kelp blade

3. Other water blade

4. Fish blade

5. The Whole Picture

Hope you like it. I do. It looks purty when it's going round and round. Now I just need to make a shade for that awful naked bulb... we got rid of the original cover when we moved in 2 years ago not knowing what it was, and now we're sorry.

9  Cell Model Pillow... of DOOM! in Crochet: Completed Projects by nerdnirvana on: November 26, 2005 03:00:54 PM
you remember, from biology class, when you had to make a model of a cell (or at least color one in)?
this is my biology cell model, from two years ago, which i now feel a compulsion to share with you:

check the skillz:

And what the things are:
The pink sort of visible in the lower left corner: cell membrane
green blobs: lysosomes
blue oval blobs: mitochondria
varigated pink/peach/white patch with red balls: endoplasmic reticulum.
red balls: ribosomes
brown blob: Golgi apparatus
purple circle: nucleus
darker purple circle: nucleolus
red around purple circle: nuclear envelope
cream background: cytoplasm
aaannnd: blue/turquoise yarn: spindle fibers

i'm now making one for my physics teacher for his birthday... he saw it when i brought my portfolio to school with me to be photographed for college apps, and he loved it, so i offered to make him one...
gotta get a move on. and make one for my brother, a bio major, for christmas, as well.

10  Touched by His Noodly Appendage in Crochet: Completed Projects by nerdnirvana on: November 26, 2005 01:44:07 PM
As per a request by my AP Gov teacher, I made this wonderful hat, inspired by the lovely Sparky of venganza.org. As a new convert to Pastafarianism, I feel compelled to spread the gospel of His Noodly Holiness. In the beginning, the Flying Spaghetti Monster created the mountains, the trees, and a midget. To learn more about the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, visit http://www.venganza.org

The hat:

On my head:

I didn't exactly have a pattern for it, just basic guidelines. I rather like it. My class wants me to make one for everyone, so we can wear them to the AP exam. As for this one hat, I want to keep it, but alas, it is promised to my Gov teacher.
At least she shall be blessed, her head will be warm, and she will look like a complete dork. RAMEN!
