131  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Best places to get cocoa and shea butter? (Online & Real Stores) on: August 22, 2012 01:23:05 PM
My mother and I have found a huge fascination in the art of making cosmetics, body products and the like. For our first experiment we want to try making knock-off LUSH hard massage lotion bars. The recipe requires cocoa and Shea butters.

So my question is, where is the best place to get cocoa and Shea butter, price-wise?

That looks AWESOME!
Love the random placement too, I've been dying to do this, just waiting for the perfect "canvas".

And may I mention how awesome the "get nakid" is? How fabulous!
133  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Is it possible to make shoe soles? In any way, shape, or form? on: August 08, 2012 07:51:37 AM
I'm especially looking for a way to create a rubberized splendor mocassins, though any other shoe type is great.

These are AWESOME! Yay for God inspiration!
I think the black vinyl on the similarly black oxfords is good because it isn't that shock of 'WOW they have something on their shoes" (some people are easily frightened by things not normally seen in day-to-day fashion - how unfortunate), but you actually have to look to see them. Subtle, but at the same time, they're WINGS!! Cheesy

I do need to make some of these!
135  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Tribal Sundress with Bustier-style bodice on: July 27, 2012 02:53:25 PM

Though I can't take complete credit for the design (as I referenced another dress that I had), I did have to make the pattern myself. I'm pretty happy with this little dress, can't wait to wear it out!

For the fabric, a lovely pale blue cotton with browns and whites in a tribal pattern that I "stole" (she let me have it) from my grandmother's fabric stash. I should have measured the yardage that I took, but I didn't. It was wide enough to wrap around me 1.5 times and was about half way down my shins if I wrapped the fabric around my like a towel (under my arms). I ended up with a piece about 10" by 5". Close call!

Its partially lined (the bodice), and has shirring in the back, so no zipper! My first time shirring. I LOVE IT. Turned out perfectly, and its very comfortable. Super super easy too.

I plan on using this pattern again soon! Can't have too many sundresses!  Cheesy

Those look incredible! Totally like designer kicks, I swear I have seen some just like this. And love the ever-so sexy red underneath, I've been dying to do that to a pair of my heels.
137  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Ugly $3 Walmart Heels into something Sexy? Need ideas!! <3 on: July 19, 2012 02:30:06 PM

So I found these butt-ugly heels at Walmart for $3. The "Cheap University Student" in me leapt at that price tag, but there is no way in hell that I'm wearing them as-is.



As you can tell by the photos, they basically look like a rather plain heel design, with a sort of "sleeve". I suppose I could just cut carefully along the line and call 'em done, but who wants to stop at that? Besides, I have a pair of heels already that look similar to that design. Looking for something snazzier.

I love the idea of lace, studs, etc. Maybe a splash of colour somewhere, somehow.  I need inspiration, and input!

I'd love to hear anything you folks have to say!

(Cacti say HI!)

Thanks everyone!

That's great recycling!  He'll enjoy it for a long time.  By the way, my VV would never sell a leather coat at that price.

I found it incredibly unusual to sell a genuine leather coat at that price too, but there were a few slashes here and there in the leather. I managed to just work around them.
