1  Re: a hair story in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by artistic_lunacy on: July 16, 2005 08:20:05 PM
It's super super low maintenance. It pulled at my scalp a bit for the first day, but now its fine.
The annoying part is people touching/pulling/playing with my hair. Especially ones I don't know. It's fun though.
Here is a picture with the colours... me with my band (insert ad telling you to check out our low-fi one-track recordings at www.myspace.com/pussinb0ndage)

I'm, obviously, the one with the red hair...

2  a hair story in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by artistic_lunacy on: July 05, 2005 10:05:01 PM
I did my hair in yarn extensions.
I had a friend braid my hair into tiny little braids.
Then, she used a darning needle to poke yarn (3 pieces) through the top, and folded them over, so each braid is like a chunk of braided hair and 6 pieces of yarn....
She braided that, and knotted the yarn.
I waaaay underestimated on the time it would take. My hair is quite long normally, and there is a lot of it, and the entrie thing took about two days, includsing an all-nighter, but really, once you are half-finnished, you arn't about to stop.
Now I don't have to brush my hair for a month.
Here are some pictures I took with my webcam, but due to something funny with the lighting, the colours didn't show up at all. The braids are bright briight red, yellow, orange and pink...

3  Big shirt and I had to go do long sleeves at the beggining of summer in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by artistic_lunacy on: May 13, 2005 11:02:46 PM
So, I had this big oversized shirt...

and of course I just had to change it around and make...

But then I asked myself why I am making long flannel sleeves at the beginning of summer.

So, I got some requests for a tutorial...
I kinda did things in a weird order, so it might be tough, but I'll try my darndest.

1. I ripped the sleeves off the original shirt with a stitch ripper. This is a little time consuming, but it let me use the old sleeves for the cuffs on the new shirt (I'm not sure if that shows up in the picture or not)

2. I used a shirt that fits me really well to help me modify the sides of the shirt.

3. I cut sleeves out of the plaid fabric. I used a pattern I have for another shirt for this. ( I also attached the old sleeves as cuffs at this point.)

4. I stitched those sleeves up, and then onto the shirt body

5. I stitched up the sides of the shirt

6. I stitched up the armpits by hand. I hate armpits.

7. I drew the neckline I wanted in chalk, and then cut it out.

8. Oh, and hemming, of course

I used a serger for the whole thing. I also did most of it in the wee hours of the morning. I hope the steps I wrote out are coherent, but feel free to ask if you have any questions. Mostly I just held it up to myself to figure out what worked and what didn't.
