Oh these sets are beautiful! Thank you for sharing.
Would you mind sharing the links for these? I need that victorian ghost dress! (then I'll probably decide I can't afford it, but still...). Thank you! Smiley

Thank you for explaining!  Cheesy I had seen such websites, and I always wondered...

A home laser would be super cool! I think I want one just 'cos, although I have a feeling a lot of things would end up in pieces at home  Grin

These are so cute! I always love your stuff  Cheesy

I had a question, just out of curiosity (although feel free to not answer if it's like a trade secret!). But, how do you make the different bits? I mean, I love the look and "cleanliness" of laser cut pendants, but do you actually use the laser yourself or do you get the parts done somewhere else and then assemble? I can't help it, I like to know how things are done  Wink Thank you!

5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Homemade photo tent/box with tiny tute on: January 30, 2011 05:17:52 AM

I thought I would post this, in case it's useful to someone else. I was quite proud of myself for thinking it up  Grin I've wanted a photo tent forever and I'd seen some tuts online with cardboard boxes, but they looked a bit flimsy to me. Then it hit me! I had these 10x8 wood picture frames from the Dollar Store lying around (I use the glass for polymer clay work). So I took some leftover nails I had from hanging pictures and used 3 on each side of a frame to create a channel to slot the other frames in.

That's just to keep stuff in place while I use my trusty glue gun to "grout" everything (because let's face it, Dollar Store frames are not the straightest ever!).

Now the wood box is really sturdy! All I did then was tape some remnant cotton white fabric (I wanted to be able to remove it to wash it/ change it) and voila! A cheap photo box! The only thing I had to buy was a full spectrum light bulb (I read that's best). I plan to experiment with covers and light-sources next.

The advantages are that 1/ the bow is sturdy so I can really stretch the fabric over it and 2/ the normal "grooves" of the frame make a perfect channel for the cardboard background.
Obligatory test shot:

7  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Brennan/Bones circus costume advice (with awesome Bones pictures :-D) on: September 04, 2010 05:28:50 PM
I usually make jewellery and other little crafty things in my spare time, but I'm in love with the TV show Bones and I've been dying to make the Wanda costume from the circus episode. I'd like to make the corset but I am a bit worried about incorporating the little tassled skirt thing and the bow at the back. I have made a simple corset before but nothing like that. So I thought I would ask if all you talented people had an idea how to do that or where I could find a similar pattern.
Thank you for reading! :-)

ETA: On further inspection, it looks like the back skirt thingie is added on the the corset itself, sortof like a little bustle. However, if anyone has ever seen a pattern for this type of corset (with the front triangle and straps), I would muchly appreciate the input. My research has yieded nothing so far.
