1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Headphone Sleaves la engrafted on: January 13, 2011 12:08:45 PM
I made these! I used four stitches around in a spiral, and a thinner yarn... I did try with the three stitches with thicker yarn, but since I'm a beginner at crochet, I was having a very hard time with inserting the hook. This took longer, I'm sure, but I think it looks neat.

I used embroidery floss to re-mark the left and right earbuds after I covered that part up.

Thanks for the gift idea for my friend... Her cats mercilessly eat her headphones, and they can even get into drawers to get them!  Roll Eyes

Aww, that is awesome!

I'm seeing my boyfriend for the first time in six months just after Christmas, so I'll have to whip up one of these for our gift exchange. I have everything but the "berries" so I'll probably just improvise those.  Grin

Wow, those detail shots were amazing. You might even have more even stitching than my grandma, and she's been cross-stitching for at least 50 years!

Holy wow, that is so amazing, and it sounds so therapeutic and fun to work up a 3D Lady Gaga!

I find it interesting that you chose an American flag for her outfit. Was that a real outfit she wore, or the way you think of her? (I guess how over-the-top she is is very American?) I can't Google up anything other than the skintight American flag outfit from the Telephone video.

I love the outline on the Little Prince being almost dotted. It really goes with the fragile but beautiful look of the original image.

And I also like the scribbly outline on the burger. I never would've thought to do that with embroidery!

Your mother is awesome, and also, "twig and berries" is my new favorite euphemism. I love the simple redwork stitching, too... Traditional techniques and nontraditional subject matter. Grin

Tempted to stitch this for my boyfriend as a joke... we met online! Thanks for the idea, hehe.  Grin

Wow! I never would've thought of that. The tea bag is so realistic too! Hilarious. Cheesy
9  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / If there's anything around here more important than my ego, I want it shot now! on: November 07, 2010 05:54:23 PM
Zaphod Beeblebrox from HitchHiker's Guide to the Galaxy! Cheesy

I decided to do the movie version of Zaphod because I thought he looked much more "expensive" than the TV show version, although I was sad that this wouldn't involve a second head. I was going to do the third arm, but the good costume store in my town went out of business and the temporary Halloween one ran out of arms. =/ Next year I'll learn how to cast my hand in resin!

The trenchcoat was a costume piece I already had. I pinned and taped everything, trying to minimize the amount of permanent holes since I wanted to use it for other costumes. The boots I wore (not pictured, this was a photo shoot yesterday as I didn't get any good pics on Halloween) were some short black numbers I normally wear to the Medieval Faire. I had to buy some black slacks at Goodwill since I didn't own any! The gold belt was also bought at Goodwill a while ago and previously had life in a music pirate costume (Napster logo included) and a gypsy costume (from Borat).

I made almost all of the accessories (epaulet, belt buckle, fake buttons, and medallion on the epaulet) from a sheet of craft foam, gold wrapping paper, black ribbon, and in the spirit of Craftster, lots of glue. The gold "shirt cuffs" are actually fake, just pinned to the sleeves. I live in Florida and it was 80 degrees on Halloween... I wasn't going to wear any more layers than I had to, so a real gold shirt was right out! The cape was my first attempt at machine sewing since I was 10. It goes all the way to the floor. I almost bought the goatee and moustache, but I couldn't find exactly what I wanted, so I made it with eyebrow pencil and eyeliner. Cheesy

One more thing: This "chain mail" bracelet I made out of a pot scrubber after not being able to find anything similar at thrift stores, even in a different color. It fell apart when I tried to take it off after the actual night, so it wouldn't stay on my hand for the shots, but here it is as simulated jewelry.

The whole costume cost about $15 including the pants, which I can wear again. I consider it a success for a college student's money and time budget.

That's so cute! You should totally get back into Halloween costumes. They are for all ages. *nods*
