1  Curly girl with an a-line, can it be done? in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by EZ START on: November 19, 2005 09:32:25 PM
Hello darlings!

I need some help, advice, suggestions, a yes or no, etc...

I'm tired of my boring, dark brown, curly, layered hair.

I'm thinking a nice drastic a-line and a lovely V-bang.

However, is that even possible for the type of hair I have?

Not to mention, my forehead measures two inches from my hairline to my brow.

So, I'm pretty sure that it's possible that I can get the bangs, and I read a post from someone on here that they had a small forehead and had more of a U-bang than V-bang.

But would it look right on me?

I have a fat head, so I don't know.
Back to the a-line...

I'm thinking pretty drastic if I can do it.

The longest part would hit either in the middle or below my chest, and the shortest would be a bit of a layer mid-ear, which of course would be fluffed out.

Is it possible for a curly and thick haired, not to mention fat headed girl like me to achieve this look?

Would it look superbly-awesome if I had this cut and dyed two pieces in the front or the whole head a forest green color?

Would the hairstyle look alright if I perhaps... 'forgot' to straighten it?

And even if it would work...

Would I actually look awesomely awesome sporting it?

^Fat head.

^Fatter head

^Less fat because the Brillo pad is covering it.

^Because it's cool?


And for some well deserved comical relief, I bring you....

^ EZ START, donkey in disguise!






Thank you for your time. =)

P.S. Sorry for the outrageously large pictures, my computer is not being very cooperative today.

Why not merge the two styles together?

I don't know much about Spain, so I did a bit of research and found a picture of King Phillip's bedroom. I see a lot of earth tones. (IE: olives, tans, off-whites, terracottas, and rusts.)

You could buy (or make!) a bright and decorative quilt for your bed. You could also get some prints of Spanish paintings for your walls.

Now, Victorian I know pretty well.  Smiley

You could go many different directions with that. You could paint your walls light pastels, or even a very vibrant yellow! Here's a link for some ideas for a Victorian themed room.


I hope this helps. Goodluck with your bedroom!

My hair is thick, frizzy, and curly. I hate it...  Angry However, since I have to live with it, I'm learning how to control it. It's not nearly as frizzy as it used to be.

Oh, and as crazy as this may sound... I <3 my eyebrows.  Cheesy

4  Crossed with blanket. O.o in Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions by EZ START on: August 21, 2005 05:43:58 PM
I recently bought a book that has a ton of suggestions for different projects to dress up a room with. One of the projects is called the Hammock Quilt. It's held together with iron on mending tape.

However, I'm afraid that something that gets so much use as a blanket would fall apart. What I want to know is, how would I be able to attach the crosses on to the blanket without using iron on mending tape? Oh, and I really don't feel like sewing them on.

5  Re: i neeeeed an amazing over the top costume in Halloween Costumes by EZ START on: August 12, 2005 07:13:51 PM
Last year I was an angst teen mushroom. I wore an old pair of jeans that had a few holes in them, an Evanescence concert t-shirt, a pair of green sneakers, and a mushroom hat. Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of me in the costume that day. However, I do have a picture of the hat!

It's just a large straw hat that I bought at a craft store, 1 yard of red felt, 1 yard of white felt, a piece of sticky sided white felt cut into circles, some stuffing, and hot glue. It only took about half an hour to make and cost about $10.

Also, my friend and I came up with our very own Holiday, "Muffin Day!" We celebrate it every year on March 3rd. I made quite a few hats similar to that one out of white felt, a light brown synthetic fur, dark blue sticky sided felt, and hot glue.

I also made eight smaller versions of that muffin hat and handed them out to friends. I made a muffin T-shirt as well.

I have one more thing, too! A few months back, I don't remember when, I was at a friends house. There were four of us, it was snowing, and there was a stack of old newspapers ready to be burned by the fire place. So... We decided to split into teams and turn two of our friends into a news paper bride and groom. My friend, much to my dismay, was set on making the dress. So, I had to do the groom. Most of the suit is composed of folded paper, seeing how the opposing team kept hogging the tape.

Here is the lovely groom that the opposing team kept criticizing the outfit of! I thought it came out rather well...

Here is the bride.

The lovely couple walking down the aisle.

The couple sharing a kiss.

Rejoicing in their happiness. (Look at the groom's face, it's so couture model!)

Ending the ceremony.

And finally... the honeymoon.


Oh here's another idea! You could be a quilting pirate!

That's all, good luck with your costume!  Cheesy

6  Bedroom-HELP! (PICTURE HEAVY) in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by EZ START on: July 31, 2005 02:25:21 PM
I'm redoing my bedroom. The style I'm going for will be a mix of the bedroom styles between 1880 and 1950. No poodle skirts, just a girlie and lacy room. However, my favorite colors are navy blue, burgundy, dark raspberry, grayish purple, taupe, grayish blue, and rich dark browns. My favorite shades are dark gray- black. (No white though.) My headboard will be painted an antique brass color. Think of a mix between brass and iron. I have my rug, which you will see below, and that's about it. I get sick of wall colors fast, so it can't be very plain. My father doesn't know how to put up wallpaper, so that's out of the question. (I wanted red and white pinstriped wallpaper.) I have a few things that I found online that I like below as well.

Here is my bedroom now. (please ignore the huge mess.)

Now here are a few things I have to work off of...

1) Artwork. (need more of.)

2) Rug (Colors in rug: grayish purple, black, two shades of sage, off-white, burgundy, dark pink, olive green, medium reddish brown, and terracotta.

I was thinking of painting my room the second darkest purple seen above, but I don't think I will now.

These are things I saw online that I hope to include in my room. (I will most likely be getting the curtains.)

(Does anyone know where I can get a scalloped edged comforter like that?)

So, that's about it. Can anyone suggest some websites that I can look at for ideas of things to put into my bedroom? By the way, I have two beds and a mattress. (One full, two twins.) So I would need something for the bed in the corner. It's my couch bed which holds my junk at the moment. That's another thing, I need storage! I only have the use of one closet, my family took over the other. My bedroom is rather large, so I can fit a few extra things. I also have a black computer desk, I think we will be painting the furniture black. I plan on replacing the molding with non-finished wooden molding and painting that black.

Anyhow, help? ideas for storage, paint colors, bedding, furniture set up, etc. It's all welcome.

I have that same one! I bought it at a giant yard sale with my Mother, it was only $1.50

Mine is rusty too, I may have to steal that great idea of yours.  =X Perhaps you could grab some acrylic paints and put a pattern over the red. (Like polka dots!) Well, have a wonderful day.
