11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / safari prom oh seven on: May 28, 2007 08:46:25 AM
it's never enough for me to just buy a nice, normal dress and go to a formal dance. i can never settle for simple updo and limo. it always have to be a themed ordeal. my poor date (who made a pact with me freshman year to escort me to every school dance) is just realzing that he will never have a normal dance-going experience.

so. for my junior prom, the theme was the ever epic SAFARI PROM.
i made my dress as well as eric's vest and cravat.  i don't have any pictures of the back but i used gold grommets and then laced up the back with black silky cord.  the bottom part of the dress was four different prints. it was very nice. i didn't use a pattern cause patterns are for suckers. sike. they're more like for people who are smart enough to know how to use them and who are gentle enough that they don't rip them to shreds attempting to unfold them.

and our mode of transportation:

aww hellyes. big pimpin.

13  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / easy little crazy print dress on: May 27, 2007 11:51:48 AM
bought the fabric at goodwill on half off day. i was having a surprise birthday dinner for my best friend and wanted to have something nice to wear so i whipped up this little number in about two hours. really easy to make. i don't have any particularly awesome pictures of it but you get the jist of it....

deep v-neck front with a slight crossover. elastic under the bust. goes to right about the knee. hella easy to make. i wore it with a black belt i have.  i like it. let me know what you think!
14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / orange winter formal dress; complete with beehive and badass story on: May 27, 2007 11:41:38 AM
i haven't posted any of my projects in ten thousand years. so here we go.

i made this dress for our snowflake ball. i picked the most horrific color combination i could find, drafted the pattern, etc. etc. i also made the giraffe print cropped jacket seen in the bottom picture as well as my date's flower thingy. butionare? butinere? i'm too lazy to go to dictionary.com and figure out for sure.

i got the cute lil lazy eye thing going on.

and the badass story to accompany this last picture:

so before this dance, we had a really nice dinner at my friend jonas' house. and we had such a nice time that we were a little late getting to the dance. the doors close at 8 and we arrived at 8:10 thinking nothing of it because a) jonas' mother had called to let the teachers know we would be late/we werent out drinking and b) we all had set up for the dance and had to be there because we're all student council members and it's mandatory for student council kids. so we go inside and as soon as we head towards the gym we get chased down by teachers/ the rent a cop man. long story short, we were thrown out of the dance and i got a special police escorting out because i had an 'attitude problem'. so we took that last picture, a bunch of our parents came down to the dance, bitched out the teachers and we got in for the last five minutes. the end.

more pictures!

16  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / knitted tampon cozy? on: November 20, 2006 01:19:13 PM
while i'm not entirely new to knitting, i've never really ventured past the 'everything is just a rectangle' stage.  i recently recieved a tampon cozy in a swap and all of my friends really love it so i was thinking i would make them for christmas. the one i have is crocheted but i was wondering if any had tried knitting one and if so, how i would go about doing that.... thanks.
17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / make dresses, not war. on: June 22, 2006 05:18:56 PM
no work today! yay! bonding time with the machine!

this one is made out of a red sheet i found at salvation army. it was fitted so i just cut off the elastic-y ends and added them as a ruffle at the bottom. it has straps (which you can't see due to my hair).

again, another bedsheet. it had fruit on it. fantastic. the red part is just a sash. and the thing in the background is my new bike! i painted it orange! i just had to show it off.

and this one was an XL long sleeve t-shirt. i like the color blue. scoop neck and crazy sleeves.

props to muh baby brutha for taking the pictures.
18  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / it's bright and fun and i shall wear it forever! (it's a dress) on: May 27, 2006 09:07:10 AM
my friend was at my house. and took an insanely long shower. so i made this dress while she showered. it's made of two very large pillowcases i bought at salvation army. and i like it a whole lot.

i'm too lazy to take pictures of myself in it. and they always turn out bad. so here's a few pictures of me wearing it around. i have a light blue shirt on under it. you'll get a general idea of what it looks like. i'm pretty proud of it.

that last one was my scene pose. i really think the lime green walls and floral dress add a lot to my scene-ness.

lemme know what you think!
19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / fern skirt. big ol' pictures. on: May 23, 2006 01:27:20 PM
my best friend's birthday was last week. i call her fern because she reminds me of a fern. (sidenote: she calls me gully as a shortened form of my last name. so together we're ferngully. kinda dorky but i like it). i bought an old bedsheet (because i'm cheap) and made it into a simple elastic-waisted skirt and then i painted some ferns on it. and i added some quotes and lyrics and such in between the ferns. modeled below by myself

another sidenote: these pictures were taken in my little brothers room and you can see the giant duct-tape weapon thing he made in the background. yay crafty brother!

and this is the fern:

20  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / trash flavored party on: February 20, 2006 08:17:36 AM
so. i just had a tea party on friday. but today is my birthday and we have off school. so i took it as a sign from god that i needed to have a party on sunday night. so i convinced my parents to allow me to have a 'small gathering' (which ended up being twenty seven people in my really small basement.) after last year's cupcake massacre, my dearest mom and dad were a little concerned about the party and told me if any small incident should occur, i wouldn't be able to get my permit for another three weeks- MINIMUM. so clearly. nothing bad could happen. because i reallly reallllly want to drive.
the theme of the party was trash. i put newspaper all over my walls and on the biggest wall i taped brown craft paper and i graffiti-itized it. later on in the night a couple of my artistic friends found the paint and added to it so it ended up looking much better. and i covered my couch and treadmill and most of the furniture in old sheets. and i put all the pillows in trash bags and covered the chairs in trash bags. i also got toliet paper (which was surprisingly strong- yay dollar store toliet paper) and used it as streamers.  people had to come dressed as some interpretation of 'trashy'. people came as white trash, and hookers, and hobos, and mary-kate olsen, and oscar the grouch and it was just entertaining. though most people changed out of thier costumes by the end. overall it was one of my favorite parties. pictures:

the very best part was at the end when we were cleaning. and neil asked where the trash bags were. and i ripped one off a barstool.
