1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I am Gaia on: November 16, 2008 01:15:02 PM
It was supposed to be different. but i really liked it. so i left it as it turned out annnnd decided that it's not actually a halloween costume, but another fancy-ish dress that i need a place to wear. ANYWAY:

my not-boyfriend calls me "gaia" because of this photo  Smiley
I'll try to get a photo of the back soon.
2  COOKING / Dessert / Apple cake with cream cheese/cider frosting and carmel roses (NOW WITH RECIPES!) on: October 11, 2008 10:09:44 PM
okso. I used a recipe that my aunt created when she was in high school, and the icing is recipe i created on my ooowwwn. unfortunately, I do not have pictures of the inside of the cake because it was a gift for someone and I wasnt able to cut into it.
without further ado:

please please ignore my complete mess of a kitchen. I don't know what cleaning means.
in the second picture, you can see part of another, similar cake. It was my test cake that my family very happily devoured in about a day =)
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / homecoming dress from laaast year (PURPLE!!) on: October 05, 2008 07:46:17 PM
I thought I had posted this, but I guess I didn't  Undecided
I really only remembered it because I'm having a dress-up date with my bff and I'm breaking the dress out again.
I don't have great pictures right now, but i'll for sure get more when we go out on Saturday!

Full-ish shot

close up of the top

I know I'm amazingly attractive in both pictures, please try to abstain from making lewd comments  Tongue

It's just a halter (with a bra in it because I need a bra always (boooo on boobs)), with a belt and the skirt has bits tucked up. There's probably a name for that but... I don't know what it is...
So? Comments?

P.S. I had numerous people comment on the absurd cleavage I have going on, and for those who don't approve, I apologize. However, I secretly love my cleavage, and I don't feel that any part of any body is soemthing to be ashamed of simply because it's "taboo."
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / stripes, hoods, and 4 inch heels on: September 22, 2008 09:23:17 AM
Hood down:

Hood up:

New favorite outfit. Made it last night/this morning. Soooo pleased. It looks a little wonky in the pictures and... it is a little wonky, I won't lie.

Do you love it?
I do!!  Grin
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / why cant i knit? on: August 24, 2008 02:14:55 PM
i really want to knit a hat for my boyfriend's christmas present, but i cant knit! i tried crocheting because i was told it was eaiser, and i couldnt do that either. is there such a thing as a knitting class? i've gotten books and watched videos and tried over and over, but nothing flows right. the yarn gets caught in my fingers even though i follow the instructions. how long does it take to get the knack of it? i have 4 months to get this... will i be able to knit a hat by then?

im so frustrated.
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / more-than-a-circle skirt? on: August 02, 2008 03:47:56 PM
i love the flowiness of circle skirts. i would wear circle skirts all the time if i could. but i'm wondering if i can get more flowiness.

this is a typical circle skirt folded in half:

i'm wondering if by making the bottom half-way point comparatively longer that the waist half-way point, would i get more flow, or would it just look awkward?

what do you guys think? has anyone done this? i feel like it's something that could be accomplished by insertion of gore/godet-like panels into a circle skirt.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / dangerously looow back lbd on: July 28, 2008 11:20:53 AM

here is the front

8  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / tonic water sherbet float on: July 21, 2008 12:32:54 PM
exactly what the subject says. everyone on my house is a lover of rootbeer floats, and this is a twist on that. It's crazy simple. i actually made the tonic water using this recipe
and i used raspberry sherbet. it's a refreshing, fruity twist on the whole float thing =)

happy summer!
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / "beginning a new chapter" dress on: June 26, 2008 08:26:06 PM
hey, I'm x-posting this in the designer forum too, since i'm not quite sure where it belongs, and i think it's pretty appropriate for both sections. anyway! I have come to terms with my curves. i've always had weight issues, and i suffered from an eating disorder for four years (i know i'm young, it happens), but i've set my foot down and decided that life is too short and i need to move past these things. as a sort of... moving on celebration, my boyfriend is taking me out on a beautiful expensive date, and i would like a beautiful not-so-expensive dress (though if it must be expensive, i'm willing to splurge a little). it's just a dress, but i'm using it as a sort of land mark. a reminder of hard times overcome.

i want this dress, or something similar. if anyone has any patterns or suggestions, i would be eternally grateful. any help offered will be accepted and appreciated. thank you for your time =)

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / i finished my prom dress 10 minutes before we left (img pregnant) on: May 04, 2008 08:05:29 PM
our prom theme was "Midnight Masquerade" although...

story time:
the juniors had the seniors vote on what we wanted the theme to be. we had a list of seven themes to choose from. a group of us decided to do a write in theme since all the other themes were lame. we chose "dinosaurs" as the write in. of the seven themes (eight including the write-in) "dinosaurs" came in third place.

anyway. i made my dress and my mask. neither are very good, but what are you gonna do, right?
