1  Mario Question Blocks in Completed Projects by Meiki on: December 26, 2009 10:58:57 AM
My Mario-loving boyfriend is getting a new car, and in celebration I thought I'd make him something for it. I came up with little question blocks to hang over his rear-view mirror.

I just threaded some clear elastic cording through a small hole in the top side of the cube and stitched it in place to make them hang.

Two sides have question marks, and two have brick-looking patterns. I think they came out pretty cute!

2  Renaissance Faire Fun in Costumes: Completed Projects by Meiki on: June 11, 2008 04:31:02 PM
Nothing terribly historically accurate, but it was a ton of fun dressing up and taking pictures!

Everybody together, the only clothing I didn't make is Bryttanye's (far left) skirt, and my (second from the right) shirt. Everything else was sewn more or less in the week and a half before the faire! Drafting that kilt was an interesting experience.

A better detail shot of the girls! All of Bryttanye's is hand drafted, my bodice is loosely based off of Simplicity 3677, and Lauren's is Simplicity 3812. My cape is heaaaavy, it's two layers of fairly heavy cut-pile cotton, the frog I had on it originally snapped from the weight, so I replaced it with a big gaudy brooch for fun :3

And the back of my dress, just cause it's pretty.

3  I am a dino! Rar! My dinosaur-print EGL dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Meiki on: June 10, 2007 09:49:24 PM
So I'm into EGL (Elegant Gothic Lolita for those not into crazy Japanese fashion trends, the best resource I can give you is http://lolita-handbook.livejournal.com/ if you're curious!) And my friend had some dinosaur sheets sitting around that she didn't need. So after staring at them for a while, I decided that I needed to make a dino rori dress. And here it is!

The happiest picture taken at a gas pump ever:

(Pardon the badge, I wore this to Animazement, a local convention, and I forgot to take it off)

Full shot off of me:

(That skirt is FULL, I used a little over half the sheet for it)

Bows and lace:

(The bows are detachable, in case I wanted to put them up by the straps or something)

A closeup of the back, shirring was an adventure:

I think it came out pretty well, especially for drafting the pattern myself, it's really my first decent attempt at drafting. And uh...no. Dinosaurs aren't typical lolita-wear. But I'm seeking to change that.

4  Woven Duct Tape Purse~! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Meiki on: May 04, 2005 04:48:15 PM
Ah, the trusty duct tape purse. Mine's a bit old, but it's held up really well! It's normal and blue duct tape, with a happy little blue ribbon just for fun. The woven part's just strips of layered duct tape cut for good measure and woven, then I covered the edges in normal duct tape. For my first duct tape adventure, I'd say it turned out pretty cute Cheesy
