1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Adam and Jamie are friends... on: July 23, 2011 12:00:22 PM
Myth busted!

I was brainstorming with my dad the other day to figure out what dolls to make, and suddenly Adam and Jamie popped into my head! What celebrities could be better to immortalize in plush form than the glorious Adam and Jamie?

These were made from my own pattern, and took about 4 hours to make.


It's a little hard to see, but Adam's shirt says "Busted!"

I am particularly in love with Adam's glorious mustache!

Adam and Jamie=BFFs.

I'm planning on mailing these to the Mythbuster offices! Hopefully I'll get a response. *crosses fingers*

2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Tom Baker 4th Doctor plushie on: July 20, 2011 03:28:55 PM
 "Would you care for a jelly baby?"

I got a custom request to do a Tom Baker doll on etsy, and of course  I jumped at the chance! He is about a foot tall, with a removable scarf and hat. I made him from a pattern I designed myself, and I'm extremely pleased with how he turned out.

All cozy, and ready for some adventures with Sarah Jane.

His little blue button shoulder joints

I actually didn't notice that the buttons I used for his eyes were tinted blue, until AFTER I sewed them on!

Anyway, he's adorable and cuddly, and I'm very excited to send him to the girl who bought him.
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Hello.... I'm the Doctor. on: July 15, 2011 05:54:28 PM
So, a few weeks ago, I got bored and decided to make myself a new pattern for a Doctor Who plush! And, it went far better than I thought it would. So, here's my new Doctor doll! He's already been getting into adventures with the Tardis, as you can see... Tongue

He's made out of fleece and cotton, with a ribbon bow-tie.

I love the buttons I found to hold on his arms... I think I'm going to go get some more, to put on a shirt or something. They're so AWESOME.

And his lovely little suspenders.

I'm so pleased with how he came out! I'm definitely going to make more with this pattern.
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / My Tardis door, living room Hogwarts Crest, and Lord of the Rings tribute. on: January 23, 2011 07:58:16 PM
My family is rather odd. We're all extremely nerdy, and can't be content with "normal" things. So, when my mother said that I could paint whatever I wanted on our walls, I jumped for joy!

Because I am a giant nerd, I was not content with my boring door that I had already painted bright red a few years ago. No. I had to have a Tardis as my door. And so, my Tardis was born!

It's very stylized, because I was a huge fan of Vincent and The Doctor. I loved how they had the Tardis painted in the painting, so I did my door similarly.

(Please excuse the black on the top of the wall. It's the beginnings of Narnia in our upstairs hallway. Yes. The Tardis is stopped in Narnia.)

My room is at the end of a very narrow hallway, so it was impossible to back up far enough to get a decent picture! Blast it all.

And one of me coming out of my room!

(And yes, that might... POSSIBLY... be an Amy hoodie.... Maybe... *cough*)

And one extremely narcissistic one, just because. This is now my facebook profile picture. I was rather excited about completing my door.

Now, onwards to the downstairs!

This is in the downstairs hall.

It's an elven brooch!

And, next to the stairs....

"One ring to rule them all..."

Please excuse my messy house. I am a crafter, not a cleaner.

And, finally, waayyyyy up on the wall of my living room....

The Hogwarts crest! Cheesy

It's about 5 feet tall, and around 20 feet off the ground. I spent a whole week living on a ladder.

Thank you, and goodnight! *exits with a swish of a cape*
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Doctor Who Nesting Dolls on: June 08, 2010 09:08:57 AM
This is a set of nesting dolls I made for a Doctor Who swap! I was INSANELY happy with how they came out!

From left to right, we have the Tardis, The Doctor #10, Rose, Martha, Donna, and Amy!
I hand painted all of them in acrylics, then painted them with a coat of varnish.

All together, I would say they took about 10 hours to complete. But, I watched Doctor Who, and Torchwood while I painted, so it wasn't that bad Cheesy I don't have a closer picture of The Doctor, but in his right hand he's holding his Sonic Screwdriver, and in his right, he's holding the key to the Tardis.

Closeup of the Tardis....

And, if you look inside...

The bottom

The top!

I'm so happy with how these turned out, and my awesome parter, fingerpistol, loved them!
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / And then there were two... Harry joins Snape in his Potter Puppet Pal goodness! on: March 16, 2010 03:09:22 PM
As some of you may recall, a few weeks ago I made a Potter Puppet Pals Snape doll. Well, now he is no longer alone. Someone is here to... Bother him!

Sorry about the bad pictures, I'm going to get my dad to do some good ones of them later this week. I was just too excited to wait till then!

"Let me look into your eyes as I die, Harry! Your eyes look just like your... Well... You don't really have eyes. Hmm... Problematic.


Harry is made from a similar pattern, but I had to make slight alterations since his face shape, and hair are different. He's not as awesome as Snape, but I think they make a good team.

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bleached Jellyfish Jeans on: February 23, 2010 08:53:34 PM
Well, here we are again. Except this time, instead of a costume from Beauty and the Beast, it's JELLYFISH TIME! Woooooo!!!

They're a recon from a pair of $6, boot cut jeans, that I turned into skinny jeans, and painted on with bleach.
At first I used a stencil, but after a while I kinda went "Screw it" and just freehanded them.  After that, I tossed them in the dryer, just to make sure the jellyfish were all bleached evenly.

So, there we have it! Me and my jellyfish legs!
8  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Another "B" post! Babette Beauty and the Beast costume! on: February 21, 2010 06:24:27 PM
This one actually WAS my costume! Hooray!
In case you haven't watched BATB in a while, Babette is the feather duster
This, unlike the first costume, I didn't completely make myself. I bought this huge princess cute bridesmaid dress, from a thrift store, then cut it apart, and turned it into a mermaid gown.
I basted a crinoline to the bottom, then glued almost 100 ostrich feathers to it! 
I made the hat from scraps of the skirt, and the hand cuffs were made out of an old feather dusters feathers, and more skirt scraps. They button with Fleur De Lise buttons!

This thing was so much fun to walk in, you have no idea. It was kind of a pain getting up and down stairs, though.

In ACTION!!!! Look at me, with muh hair all did up.

And there's the Belle dress, on the girl who wore it in the show.

And this concludes my bragging o' the day.
9  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Beauty and the Beast, Belle ballgown! (Goodness, that's a lot of B's.) on: February 20, 2010 05:39:52 PM

I was in a production of Beauty and the Beast, and I volunteered to make the Belle dress. I didn't actually wear it in the show, since I was Babette, but I wore it for this photoshoot, because it fits me too. That's why having a photographer for a father is very, very handy.

The front looks kind of wonky in the first picture, but oh well.

I made it from an EXTREMELY altered pattern. Seriously, the only thing I left the same was the... skirt. And even then, I cut it longer than the pattern said, so I could bustle it.

Side view:


Those stinking grommets killed my hands!

A lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into this dress, but I am MAJAH pleased with how it came out!
Not half bad for a 16 year old, I think! Cheesy
10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Potter Puppet Pals Snape! on: January 19, 2010 08:38:32 PM
Yeah... I've been on kind of a Harry Potter kick for the last few weeks. I loved the Potter Puppet Pals version of Snape so much, I decided he must be mine, and I sewed him up! He's made out of black and cream fleece, and is pretty big. I drew up a pattern for him out of newspaper, and then stitched him up.

He is Snape, the potions master. And I love him!
