1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / "28:6:42:12" Frank The Bunny on: November 02, 2006 11:15:58 PM
The boyfriend decided to be Frank the bunny from Donnie Darko this year... at about 9:00pm of the 27th. We had to have the costume done by, well, the evening of the 28th for a club we work for... And somehow the costume actually managed to be finished in time! Amazing!

This is the only in-progress shot we have: the mask was constructed of a plain ol' domino mask from party city, duct tape, aluminum foil, and some paint.

Then the outfit... We hunted and searched all over the city for grey fake fur but couldn't find any within budget or enough of it in one place, so fleece was used instead, and probably for the best, since he was burning up in it already (and really, probably a lot more comfortable to wear then the fur might have been)

Hopefully tomorrow I'll have a better, full-body shot of the outfit... Stay tuned!
2  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Mini Cupcake... on: October 10, 2006 04:08:09 PM
Well, not too original or awesome, but hey... I'm proud of it Grin I made it to see if I had the skill to make a cupcake at all, as I'm making a bigger pincushion for a swap (gotta wait for the new wool to come in though before i can finish that one though...)

Anyway, mini cupcake goodness <3

Hehe, I love how the side part came out... It was an unintentional mistake at first, but I just rolled with it and I like the effect~

And for size reference...

What a wee cupcakette!

I love working in miniature! The only problem I had was the 'sprinkles'- They kept wanting to go into the white part  Lips sealed No good! I might sew in flute beads for the bigger one.

I also tried using poly-fill mixed with some of the wool, to make a 'base' of sorts, and it worked out really well actually. Don't know if that's standard practice, but it never occured to me before to try it.
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Disney Villains Party - Photos added & fixed (pg 2) on: October 09, 2006 10:51:23 PM
So... You kids will see me in here quite a bit for a while asking for ideas Wink

Here's the deal: I work for a horror-movie themed goth club event we put together once a month, each with a theme- past ones include retro sci-fi, sleepover horror camp, zombie luau, silent hill, undead pirate night, lovecraft's realm, so on and so forth...

This month is Disney Villains, as my topic title might suggest! I get $100 do spend at will on decor, and more often then not I end up crafting most of it because it can be tricky sometimes finding stuff that will fit the theme. I usually put everything off until a week before (this event is this Saturday, wooohooo).

I should have my own reality tv show, now that I think about it. Hmmmm...

Anyway, here are my plans thus far:

There are three-five main areas of the event space- Red Room (middle eastern decor), Green Room (asian/zen decor), the dance floor (can decorate the stage, walls, ceiling, dj booth), back porch, and the dungeon. There is also hallway and ceiling space i can use as well.

for the red room, we're thinking of going with an Alladin theme, maybe a cut out of Jafar and The Cave of Wonders (or whatever it was called, it's been a while...), for the green room we're going with the Lion King, specifically the part of Scar's song with the nazi/millitary theme (dont tell me you dont know which part I'm thinking about!), and for part of the hall way I'm thinking of doing an underwater theme and covering the overhead lights in blue and making Usula's (The Little Mermaid) tenticles to hang from the ceiling.

It seems like I was on a pretty good roll there, but now I'm sort of stumped on ideas for the dance area and outside. Outside isn't too big of a deal to me, but I definitly want something for the dance area or stage.

That's where you clever kids come in! I will appriciate, love, and adore you if you can come up with a few ideas. Anything you can come up with- size is not an issue, nor is complexity. I'll figure a way around obsticles, I just need the inspiration!

Thank you for taking the time to read this! I hope I didn't put you to sleep  <3 <3 <3
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Beaded Lace Bracelet on: September 27, 2006 10:48:47 AM
I'm sure the technique I used actaully has a name... But I like the beaded lace term better Wink I originAlly found the pattern in a Japanese beading book, but since I 1.) didn't have any of the right materials, and 2.) can't read Japanese, I sorta winged it all... But I think it came out quite fab...

Too bad I don't wear blue though  Huh What was I thinking, lol~

A not-so-stellar pic of the whole bracelet...

Super-macro shot <3 I just love love love this bracelet...

At the end of the extentor (sp?) chain, I added a matching drop bead and somehow managed to get those seed beads onto a jump ring... I broke a lot of beads, needless to say...

Action shot!

Action shot two!

I acn't even begin to describe how proud I am of this bracelet... I've never done such complex beading before  Shocked I had to restart at least three times since I didn't know what sort of thread to use... I'm sure I started with tiger tail, but that didn't work (too thick), then went to monofiliment (kept warping) (is that even the right term?)... I ended up using (i think) nylon upholstry threads  Lips sealed Worked out well though! Gives the right shape~

THE END Cheesy
5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Egyptian, Rainbow Beaded, and Origami Paper Tags on: June 13, 2006 02:09:09 PM
Huhhhhhhhh, I hiope this is the right section to post these in Wink They are paper after all, lol, and I'm still new to this Craftser thing, hopefully I'll get into the swing of things quick <3

Anyway, these are three of my latest tag things. What use do they have? I have no idea actually, but I love making them in hopes that one day I'll be able to use them on gifts or whatever.


Egyptian Tag

Made specifically with my fiance in mind- he loves all things ancient Egyption. So, I'll probably use this when his birthday rolls around. I haven't managed to dig up my hole punch yet though, but the hole will go where the sun is at the top =) I really love this one the most.

Beaded Rainbow

Ah well... velum is not for photography evidently, but that's what that opaque-ness is. I wanted to try my hand again at beading onto cardstock, and I think it came out rather nifty. Hopefully many people won't realize I had a dukmb moment and accidently put the yellow and orange beads in the wrong order  Cry

Origami Paper

Not too interesting really, but I love the prints of origami paper and happened to have a padoga stamp nearby~

Well, i hope you... enjoyed looking at these  Grin
6  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Kitty Attack on: April 25, 2006 11:06:08 AM
My dear friend electroncat had drawn this adorable little cat: http://www.supert3ch.com/temp/buttoncatcolor.jpg

So, I figured I'd make one for my first needle felting project =) I'm super pleased with how it came out, even if he's a bit tilting to one side. And without a button. I couldn't find any small enough..

Also, does anyone have any hints/tips on how to make tails? I think this one thing was the most stress inducing part~ Although I must say... I had tons of fun making him! I was so proud when I finished him  Cheesy  I can't wait to make more little things~

Anywho, onto the pictures~

Ah, one more quick Q: Roving isn't terrible for cats is it? My cat (trained to attack anything pink) ate a wee bit of my wool the other day :O Oops...
7  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Dollie Dreads on: April 21, 2006 06:30:23 PM
Hello~ I recently finished some dreadlock falls for my doll Cicek ^__^ I'm pretty happy with how they came out, but I'm sure there is much much much room for improvement Grin Anywho, just wanted to share some pictures of them! I made them out of wool roving that I had originally planned to make some small hats out of... hehe, I had some issues with those plans, and instead decided to go with some dreadlocks instead. My first ones <3

One thing I'm concerned about is how to attach them to her wigs... Right now they're sewn/rubber banded to some tiny hair claw clippy things, and while those work, they tend to slide out of her hair  Undecided If anyone has any ideas on how to improve (or change) this, I'd love to hear them ^__^

Thanks Cheesy
