1  Yang from Rooster Teeth's RWBY in Halloween Costumes by BadWolf314 on: November 05, 2014 10:37:34 PM
This year I went as Yang from Rooster Teeth's RWBY. I fell in love with her as a character and I knew I had to put together a costume for Halloween.

I sewed by the brown shawl and painted the symbol on a yellow tank top. And unfortunately this is the only picture where you can see the symbol... yeah...

The gauntlets were a lot of fun together but a little frustrating. I used a Heat gun and foam gym pieces. I had a difficult time gluing everything together (for some reason gorilla glue didn't work and I ended up with it all over my fingers...) I finally just hot glued it all. But I love how it turned out even if no one had any idea who I was! Cheesy

I squeed so loudly opening this my husband was a bit worried... and I may have taken my pants off and put them on immediately because Magic and Harry Potter!!! These are my new favorite pants to wear around, I super excited it's getting closer to fall because I'll never have to take them off! Wink

I was at a lose for words when I first saw this. It is absolutely perfect!!! I don't know how you did it but ALL my randoms are there and they all go together so nicely!!!

I am absolutely amazed at the time and dedication bunny spent making every single one of these patches. The stitches are so perfect!

4  Ironman Cutting Board in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by BadWolf314 on: September 16, 2014 07:53:42 AM
I made this for bunny1kenobi for the IYP swap and now that she has received her package, I can show it off!

It's made out of Bloodwood for the red (this was a ton of fun to work with and makes some gorgeous red sawdust), the eyes are maple, and the rest of it is my favorite to work with cherry.

So trying to cut the pieces to a 1/4" wide is quite difficult. When I first pieced him together he kinda looked like a chipmunk. Also the edges were quite sharp once he was all glued together and I may have accidentally cut open my knee a bit (don't worry I fixed him so he won't bite anymore!)

After all the pieces were glued together, he required some planing, and then TONS of sanding and tung oil. The tung oil brings out the patterns of the wood so wonderfully!!!

I meant more like, how does it dispense? I thought it came out the little door, but seeing it open, I imagine that that is not likely.

Ha lolz. Yeah you can open up the little door and the dispenser gun thing will eventually hang on it. It's just like a spray gun so it fits through the small door perfectly. Like this:

7  TARDIS Soda Machine/Snack Cabinet in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by BadWolf314 on: September 06, 2014 11:56:49 AM
My husband loves soda and has been wanting to build his own soda machine forever. I told him he could be it had to fit with our movie room which meant it had to be built into a TARDIS. Surprisingly he complied. The body is built out of mostly plywood and MDF. The windows and Police Box signs are this stiff plastic stuff. I put vinyl over the plastic for the Police Public call signs. The top is one of those walkway lights you can get from your hardware store and we just painted it to match everything else.

It's quite large, but unfortunately NOT bigger on the inside Sad

We fit a microwave in there too. Just had to build a small shelf to put it on. The wiring and piping for the soda machine on the bottom area was the most difficult thing to figure out on this entire project.

We used LED puck lights to light everything up.

And here it is with me for scale. I'm 5'3" and I can stand up inside it.

Gah!!!! I can't wait to see whatever it is... so tempting just to click on a link... Grin

I hoping to get one more project in before the end of the month but I still haven't finished it... it's bunny's large so it's taking a bit of time and I keep getting distracted by the TARDIS in my house!!! I'll post those pictures as soon as that's completely done Smiley
But here's my largish (although not as many as I was hoping) end of semester project dump!

Battle/Challenge: July: Geography
Event: Foodology
Project Name: Tortellini Three Ways
Brief Description: I recently started watching Hetalia and had a random craving for some PASTA!!! Thank you Italy!!! So I picked up some tortellini from the store and had my hand at making some sauces. The green is a basil pesto sauce. I used this recipe to make some pesto and then took some of that, some cream cheese, and a bit of milk to make a creamier sauce. The red is just a regular tomato sauce from this recipe. For the white sauce, I mixed some butter, flour, shredded cheddar cheese, milk and powdered garlic to taste (garlics my favorite thing ever!!!). They were all very yummy and it was impossible to decide on a favorite. And it ended up in the same colors as the Italian flag!
