1  Category Challenges / Bath and Beauty: Challenge Entries / B&B Challenge 4: Snakeskin Nails on: October 18, 2013 10:59:22 AM
I thought I would try an experiment with real snakeskin nail art Smiley From my pet snake's shed skin, I cut small pieces and put them over still-wet NYC polish, then added another coat of polish. Lastly, I ended up doing like three/four topcoats so the texture won't snag things!

Sorry my cuticles are a mess! Sad

I'm poking my head up for this one! Just took off a very badly chipped design...

These are beautiful!! I've been thinking about starting to learn some basic things in polymer clay, and these are amazing things for me to aspire to Cheesy

It's gorgeous! Just the right thing to use my leftover lace curtain for. Looks really pretty on you, too!
5  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Anomaly Con outfits on: April 01, 2013 07:51:17 PM
My husband and I went to Anomaly Con in Denver over the weekend. This was our first non-academic, steampunk con together Smiley We may not have all the gears, goggles, and other accoutrements that are associated with the genre quite yet, but I'm pretty happy with the way the stuff I made turned out.

On Friday, I wore this outfit that features the skirt I made in this topic.

The shirt, boots, and belt were all thrifted finds.

I made my husband's vest out of two oversized pillowcases. (I was ripping the braid off before I remembered to take a pic)

The pillowcases had interfacing in them already so I just left it in...

...and then sewed the backside of the pillowcases on as lining.

The whole thing pieced together:

With buttons:

And on my husband:

It was a little small, and some of the seams are definitely quite wonky, but I'm happy with it for a first-ever effort Smiley

For my primary outfit, I focused on making a ruffly skirt. I started with an Old Navy skirt that I bought....let's say, a decade ago? Here's the pile of ruffles I wanted to sew on it Smiley

All attached:

Me in it (plus the rest of my outfit):

Those are super cute, and super 80s! Cheesy

The Harry Potter nails are amazing Smiley I love the glittery lightning bolt, and am really impressed with the lines for the Deathly Hallows.

After many years where it was impractical to paint my nails because they'd be ruined very quickly...I'm back to the life of a grad student, where the only danger to my nail polish is boredom XD

So I've been experimenting a bit with techniques.

One of my better ombre attempts:

First try at dotting with a bobby pin:

"Dice", since I'm gaming in a couple of days Smiley

Am planning to adapt the dotting technique slightly to make gears for a steampunk con this weekend. Looking forward to seeing what awesome nails are posted in this thread Cheesy
