1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Cosplay Crochet - Mai HiME (several images) on: July 27, 2005 08:58:26 AM
Hello Craftsters!!

This past April i attended a Sci-Fi/Anime convention called I-Con 24.  My plan was to go dressed as one of the newest anime characters i saw, and in this case it was Tokiha Mai from the show Mai HiME. 

Because i lacked a sewing machine at the time, and only had my crochet skills to back me up, I decided to make part of my costume... hee hee hee

I searched high and low for pictures that showed her school vest so i could get the right proportions.  Turns out that the first attempt was too short and the seams didn't match just where i liked.  With only two days left, i started again to make the finished product. 

Here is the best picture i could find that was close up of her vest:

And here is my finished costume:

I took a tank top for the shaping and made it up as i went along.  It's all in SC, the gold in rows and the white borders it.  The yarn was a blessing because they sold it just for 3 weeks before the convention and they JUST HAPPENED to have that color - 99 cent skeins!! 

And for the blue bag reference:

I have lots of work to do on the vest... making it formfitting for one Tongue.  But i'm debating on whether i should sew it or crochet it again.  It was fun, but i just waited too long to do it properly!

2  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Vegan Oatmeal Cloud Cookies on: March 21, 2005 01:00:51 PM
This is a variation of a choco-chip recipe i make for my fellow co-workers.  Because there is no egg, they come out super fluffy and light.

2 1/2 Cups - All purpose Flour (i use Arrowhead Mills Organic White)
1 Cup - Rolled Oats
1 -  very ripe banana (i normally throw ripe bananas in the freezer for baking later)
1/2 tsp - Baking Soda
1/2 tsp - Baking Powder
3/4 Cup - Margarine (i use earth balance non-hydrogenated)
1 tsp - Vanilla
3/4 Cups - Sugar (you may like more sugar, but this should be sufficient)

Preheat Oven to 375 degrees F.
1.  Mash the banana together with the Margarine and Sugar
2.  Add Vanilla
3.  Add the Oats to the wet mixture, set aside
4.  Mix together remaining dry ingredients, Flour, Baking Soda, Baking Powder
5.  Add dry ingredients to the wet until incorporated (mixture may look a little wet.. DON'T ADD MORE FLOUR!)
6.  Drop spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake until lightly browned - about 7-10 min.
7.  Cool on cookie rack, then enjoy!

These cookies stay soft long after they've been baked.  If you like them with a little more crunch, leave them in the oven to brown just a little longer.  They do not burn too easily.

The oven i use is an old gas oven, and it's hard to keep the temp. steady without a pizza stone.  So the cookies are fairly easy to bake.

Feel free to add any extras, raisins, nuts and other.

Hope you enjoy!!
