1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Mario Question Blocks 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  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Renaissance Faire Fun 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  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I am a dino! Rar! My dinosaur-print EGL dress 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  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Faerie costume help? on: January 01, 2007 06:23:31 PM
I'm in need of some help for a faerie outfit I'm making/altering/messing with for an upcomming Renaissance Faire. I'm in great need of some help, mostly in the way of inspiration.

I recently aquired a very pale pink prom dress that looks something like this:http://www.wpe.com/~tuxedo/proms/jessica_mcclintock_dress_1.jpg (please ignore the fact that that's an awful picture...) without straps. However, no matter what I choose to do skirt-wise, I will have to take off at least two feet at the bottom because of a rather large stain. I'm also considering taking it off completely and adding a different skirt.

I'm definately planning on embroidery and/or beading, but as to what of, and what else to do with it I'm a little stuck. I really don't want it to look too much like a prom dress, or too much like anything genericly "faerie" (like Amy Brown or Nene Thomas' art)

I'm a bit stuck. Help?
5  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / glass bottles on: June 22, 2005 08:19:44 AM
My boyfriend's birthday is comming up this July, and he has tons of glass Bawls bottles (the blue ones- http://www.thinkgeek.com/caffeine/drinks/2818/ ). I thought it would be pretty cool to make something out of some of them, he probably has more than 50. However, I kind of wanted it to be something useful,not like using them for vases or cute decorations or something, but he really doesn't have any room for furniture. Any ideas?
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Woven Duct Tape Purse~! 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
