1  Steve Madden boots....help. in Shoes: Discussion and Questions by LunaBlueStar on: March 15, 2011 05:14:23 PM
I bought these boots off ebay but they are missing the top strap on one boot.  Any ideas on what I could do?  I have some but I'm curious to see what others will come up with.

2  Re: A Clockwork Orange Costume in Halloween Costumes by LunaBlueStar on: August 13, 2008 09:39:20 PM
A friend, my husband and I did this costume for a Villain themed party in April.  I'm on the far right.

And here's one of me alone  ...I couldn't find bowler hats for a decent price but did find blue ones that had a fake flowers and a rainbow bands on them for much cheaper.  I removed the band and flower and painted the hats black with acrylic paint, took about 2 coats.  I used ribbon to replace the band around the hats.  I had an old Fredrick's of Hollywood corset that I removed the cups from and attached suspenders I won on ebay.  The button up I already had and I made the skirt from some material in my stash.  I used a croquet mallet as a weapon cause I already had one from my Alice in Murderland costume.

I'd be really tempted to collage them something like this:


I love this project, really want to have a go at them myself.

That's really cool but as much as I'm gonna wear them I don't think it would hold up.  I'm pretty hard on boots.

4  White Dr. Martens Boots...what to do? in Shoes: Discussion and Questions by LunaBlueStar on: November 29, 2007 12:19:12 PM
I bought these boots off ebay.....  with the intention of altering them in some way.  At first I thought maybe I would wear them as white boots but now that I have them I don't think I will.  Do any of you have any suggestions?  I mostly wear black boots...I'm not sure what I was thinking buying white ones...lol Grin

5  Halloweentown bag! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by LunaBlueStar on: September 17, 2007 06:50:59 PM
I found a great book at the library..21 Sensational Patchwork Bags by Susan Briscoe..I followed the instructions for the Bollywood Bag.

I made this for a friend as a belated birthday gift.  We both love all things Halloween, and she loves Nightmare Before Christmas, so I added the Jack patch.  It's really small, would probably fit a wallet, keys and a cell phone.  It's the perfect size for my digital camera, so I will definately be making another one.

6  my take on the double knit star scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by LunaBlueStar on: January 14, 2007 10:02:35 PM
I alternated the direction of the stars because it would have drove me nuts if I hadn't. I used Caron Simply soft and had enough left over to make a matching hat.  I only did about 14 stars instead of 16.  It's not the best but I haven't been knitting long and it was my first time trying double knitting.

This was the first thing I knitted from SNB and really the first thing I knitted other than a scarf.  It looks a little lopsided and lumpy but it has just been through a lot.  I made it about a year ago, and still carry it from time to time.  It's made from some cheap pink acrylic I bought at a yard sale and some scrap black acrylic.

Thank you...here's some more pics...just cause I'm vain...lol

And a closer pic of my husband's mask I made..

The boots were terribly uncomfortable after I painted them...I just used regular spray paint but I guess I should have used something more flexible.  They started cracking around the feet right after I put them on and walked a bit.

Hope I'm not too terribly late...I just got my film back...sadly I haven't got a digital camera.
I'm totally obsessed with Halloween and every year we all get together and throw a costume party.  Here's mine and my husband's from this year...both of which I made.
 I was what I called Alice in Murderland...

these are my boots that I painted to look like striped stockings and maryjanes, blood splattered of course.

And my husband...El Burrito de Muerte, Attorney at Law

10  My Stenciled Car! (and my first actual post!) FIXED IMAGES in Stenciling: Completed Projects by LunaBlueStar on: November 14, 2005 11:59:34 PM
After totalling our nice blue 2001 Hynduai Accent my husband and I bought a 1984 Pontiac 6000..a station wagon to replace it.  It had a primer grey hood and being the crafty people we are we decided paint it.  Sorry I don't have a before picture...

It's nowhere close to finished...we plan to go crazy with it and paint the whole thing.  For the hood we basically just sanded it, spray painted primer grey back on it, after that was dry we sanded it again and then painted a section in the middle of the hood white.  After all of that was dry we cut a huge skull and crossbones out of contact paper and placed it on.  We masked off the rest of the area and painted the hood with black spray paint.  No special auto paint...just spray paint, well the hood was spray engine enamel.  But basically we used cheap spray paint.  Eventually the sides will have flames and all be trimmed in silver pinstriping.
