1  Wee! I'm a persocon! in Costumes: Completed Projects by Evil_Duckling on: January 13, 2006 10:50:58 AM
Yea, so I am enamoured with the show Chobits. The show is adorable and funny and I love the ears that the persocons have so with about an hour, some stuffing and a pair of wrap-around earmuffs, I became one.

Seriously, the hardest part of this project was finding earmuffs. Apparently they do not exist in Long Island, had to buy them on a trip home.

Don't mind the really bad pic or the look on my face... using a self timer and a bathroom mirror is not a good way to take a picture

The ears are precisely even and identical, but for some reason they don't look like that on my head.

Best part of all, if its cold and I wish to be human again, I just slip the ears off. Imagine the top of mittens with ears on them... thats how it slips ontot he earmuff.

Thanks for looking!  ^_^ Chiiii!

2  Now my school has a Quidditch team! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Evil_Duckling on: January 12, 2006 11:52:54 AM
This idea was floating around my head for about a year and just before finals when I should have been studying, I decided to make it. This was my first stencil project ever and boy was it challenging!  I messed up here and there, mostly from the paint bleeding under the stencil, but I think it turned out pretty good for a first try  Grin  Any comments appreciated.

One question about heat setting though... how long should I do it for? All you do is put a pillowcase over the stencil job and iron, right? I really don't want to mess it up by ironing for too long or not keeping it on for too long and then washing the design out.

Thanks for looking! ^_^

3  Star Wars Robes in Costumes: Discussion and Questions by Evil_Duckling on: April 07, 2005 05:30:12 PM
Hello all you wonderful crafy people!

Two of my friends are big Star Wars fans and they want me to make them the robes from the up and coming movie. Problem is, I'm not exactly sure how to. I've made stuff before, but always freehand, never from a pattern or my own pattern or anything. Here are the robes they want me to make:

Not great pictures either.

I have about 3 weeks (I think) to finish them. They need them by opening day of the movie. Anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you!!!

4  Ruffled Lolita-esque Mini-Skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Evil_Duckling on: January 25, 2005 07:49:21 PM
This was my second crafting adventure ever. I was inspired from a picture a friend showed me from a Japanese website. This was made from a pair of pants my friend donated to me, which were too small and I had to resize. There are 5 yards of lace on the skirt and the garters are attachable via snaps on the waistband.

I took the zipper out of the pants for another project because I never thought I would use them for anything, so I put a patch in the front instead.


The pants were a size 9...I'm a size 14. If you look at the waistband, I put a triangle of fabric into the top. It looks weird so when I get a chance, I'm going to put black ribbon across it, kinda like a corset.

This was a pain in the butt because of all the ruffles and since I have no sewing machine, I did it by hand. I love the way it looks on me and I'm very proud of it.  Cheesy

This is what its based on/ copied off of, just for reference

5  I pulled a rabbit out of my sweater! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Evil_Duckling on: January 21, 2005 08:21:12 AM
Heylo all!! ^_^
Well, this is the first time I'm posting a creation of mine here...

This look about an hour to make, only because I couldn't get the ears positioned right. Made out of a black fuzzy sweater with shiny gardlandesque strands in it and hand stiched. The pink is from a pair of courdory pants donated from a friend, so basically it was a free hat! And good thing, its snowing here!!  Lips sealed I used the sleeves of the sweater as leg warmers too.

I think it came out great, despite the fact the ears are a little uneven, but after about an hour or trying to fix them, I decided to leave them as is. Me modeling. Tell me watcha think! Grin

6  Help!! Problems with sewing machine! in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by Evil_Duckling on: January 16, 2005 11:14:48 AM
I dont know if this is posted in the right place, but I hope someone can help me out. I just borrowed a sewing machine from my aunt and I have it for only a week (I go back to school next Sunday and I need to give it back to her), but I cannot seem to get the sewing machine working. I threaded it correctly, but all I get after a few stitches is this:

What am I doing wrong? Please help! I only have it for a week and I want to make as much use out of it as possible, but its messing up on me!  Huh
