1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / ADULT: Zike Zake Zeke Zake, Hoi Hoi Hoi! on: November 03, 2007 06:55:04 PM
So here is my costume, a German bar wench.  I thought it would be a cool costume because they're cute and you get to wear a corset, too.  I actually made it for an assignment in my theater costuming class but I wore it for Halloween, too.

This is me in my room

....and this is me and my bestest friend at my work
2  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 10 ENTRIES / my remodeled shoes on: April 05, 2006 12:19:14 PM
This challenge was the perfect opportunity for me to FINALLY paint these shoes that I bought a while ago just for that purpose.  Sorry I don't have any pictures of the process but I drew the design down with tape and chalk.

here I am wearing them

hehe my pants are all wet because it's been raining like crazy over here

And then sitting around on my bedroom floor


AAAAnd a close-up of the design


So there you are....my first attempt at a crafty challenge.  If anyone is interested I would like to sell these shoes, just PM me I guess.  Thanks for looking!!

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / googly-eyed shirt on: November 10, 2005 06:02:16 PM
I bought this black button up shirt years ago for band concerts but now that I'm not in band anymore the shirt has become useless and a little too small.....soooo I decided to cut off part of the sleeves and make a panel in the front with buttons that have googly eyes on them.  It's sooo cool

that's the front

and more

and the sleeve details

and after it was finally done I decided I wanted to make a huge hair bow like the ones you see in cartoons

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / boy do I love ms pacman on: September 01, 2005 12:42:42 PM
ok so I "found"   Grin this little girl's jacket in our lost and found at work (I work at a theme park).  Anyhoo I couldn't wear it because it was like a kids size 8 ssooooo I cut off the sleevies and added some embellishments, then decided it needed something more.  I knew I wanted a pacman theme so my sister suggested painting a maze on the back and lo and behold I did it.  I've only finished the back so far though.  I'm going to sew on fruit shaped buttons on the front if I ever get around to it. 

This is how it began, tracing the design on with a disappearing ink fabric pen.

Painted it with regular fabric paints.....took quite a while because the fabric just absorbs the paint.

I kinda half assed it after a while because I got tired of trying to keep the lines straight.  I still think it's super cute though

And here is me wearing it......
plus the sleeve detail

....and the back, though it's hard to see anything

and I didn't spend anything on the jacket....wow

I finally decided that I wanted to be able to wear this No Doubt shirt I bought.  It was a large but I've fixed it up a bit and added a few things to make it more me.

this is me wearing it

and then I decided to put some lyrics on it with some regular acrylic paint (was that a good idea?)

You can't really tell but there is black and white striped ribbon going down the sides.  Oh well I love this shirt so much.  By the way my little sister wanted me to mention that's her finger in the last picture....dang siblings
