1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Willy Wonka Costume on: April 09, 2009 10:51:30 AM
So, I'm now costuming at Miami Children's Theater. Which is a non-for-profit theater, for kids, by kids.

Here was the Willy costume I made. It is sort of a mix of the Gene Wilder and the Depp version although I've always been a Wilder fan. I found a large dark green velvet blazer at a thrift store and altered it and added a striped trim to make it more "Wonka" and so that'd fit our skinny actor. I also made the matching vest and added trim to the hat. In the last scene(Spoiler Alert!), when Charlie wins, he goes off stage and makes a 30 second change into a little Wonka suit. I've got to find those pictures. If I do I'll post'em

Full Shot


FOUND PICTURE! Wonka and Charlie in little Wonka suit

Here are some other costumes, second hand, stock and built.


The Salts (I based her after Blair Waldorf on Gossip Girl)

The Beaugregards. She blew up with an inflatable suit underneath

The Teavees. Oh, there so skeezy

2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / You betcha! Maverick for Obama!!! Shirt (IMAGE HEAVY) on: November 02, 2008 09:53:32 PM
So I went to the Obama Rally in Miami and I made a shirt. And I was the cutest little supporter there with a homemade silkscreened shirt (and pin). The font is cooper, btw.

It came out a bit wonky because originally, I was going to put "mavericks for Obama" but then I changed my mind, so I taped over it, with little success. Whatever, I'm a Maverick!


The Shirt

Maverick Pose, You Betcha!

With the Pin

All Together!

So I went to the Obama Rally in Miami and I made a pin and a shirt. And I was the cutest little supporter there with a homemade pin (and shirt).

I made it with ribbon, an old florida "vets vote"(shout out to my grandpa), glittery stickers, and a glue gun.

Close up, next to my teddy/bunny pin. Gotta show some TR love. The original maverick

All together

Whatever, I'm a Maverick!
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Feathers, jewels, and netting. Oh My!!! on: September 25, 2008 05:05:28 PM
So, I made a few things. I found a great hat supplies store downtown and I couldn't resist buying some stuff. By the way this is my first attempt at stuff like this.

As much as I hate Kenley on Project Runway, she was the inspiration for this feathered headband with red veil.

A Green beret that I added a feather piece and a vintage brooch

I saw a headband like this in a magazine a few years ago and I've always wanted to recreate it.

Thanks for looking! Comments, Criticisms appreciated.
5  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / A Julie West Bee saved a favorite shirt on: September 11, 2008 08:14:51 PM
This is my third embroidery adventure, and the first one that's been even a little bit acceptable to post. So here goes!

So I had this shirt and something awful happened to it, and it was stained.  Cry

Quick fix, I embroidered a a Julie West bee and a heart. Now it's a little less noticeable.

8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Pillow that hold books open. Multi-task away! on: August 12, 2008 09:22:57 PM
I made this for a swap. She wanted something to hold open her book when she knitted. And this is what I came up with. I saw something similar somewhere, but it was pretty different and I can't find the link.

Here it is with a little book

Big book, it's versitile

Sans book. The straps can go to the back, if ya want.
