1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Recent Burlesque Costumes - slightly NSFW on: May 03, 2010 12:08:07 PM
Hello! It has been waaay too long since I last posted here. I used to make lots of recons but recently I've been focusing on my burlesque costumes, so I thought I'd share my latest creations. Nothing spectacular, but fun and I need to keep upping my ante. I love seeing costumes and how creative this community is.

Recon bra and panties from a silver bikini that was waay not going to fit over my hips. Smiley For my mad scientist routine.

Front view, sequined bra and hip skirt/garter belt. Don't have a good picture of the back, but the white sparkly trim makes two bum-hugging lines.

Next project is creating a tear-away dress. I will do my best to document all my successes/failures along the way!

Thank for looking!

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Mousy Hat on: April 21, 2006 11:37:08 PM

Okay so I must disclaim that I didn't actually make this hat, my boyfriend Keith made it for me for my birthday. But he is lacking in a craftster account, so I'm posting this on his behalf.

I love having made a crafty boy Smiley

The hat

The inside, he put in gutted earmuffs in to keep the hat on

Now for some action shots!!

Yay! I know its totally goofy, but it is warm.

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Tips for a new city gardener? on: April 11, 2006 12:32:42 PM

My crafty prowess usually resides in clothing, but I will be getting a new apartment in a month that has gorgeous bay windows and a little deck, so I would like to do some container gardening.

I am also writing an article about container gardening and window planting for new gardeners like me.

Does anyone have any special tips on getting started (specifically for Chicago or colder weather areas), any horrendous mishaps I can avoid? Any help would be appreciated and if I use your advice in the story I will credit you.

Thanks in advance!
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / 'Twisted' Valentine Party on: February 05, 2006 07:00:58 PM

I don't think anybody's done this so I am giving some ideas and resquesting some ideas from those who know better than I.

So my birthday's the 11th (Valentine baby) and I do have a valentine, but am a bit bored with the traditional fare. So in lieu of this, I want to have a 'broken-heart' Valentine themed party for my birthday. The crafting won't be extensive, considering its a week away and that before long everyone will be drunk and not care (it's my 21st).

So here are some elements:

I'm going to make 'party favors' with candy hearts and kid's card valentines, but on the inside instead of names it will say "You stink," "Loser" etc.

We're going to watch zombie porn (Re-Penetrator, because we're weird and its kind of a romantic antithesis)

Going to buy cheap valentine's decor from Target and break the stringed hearts in half or paint some of it black.

Oh, and the cake my friend is making is a 'naked lady' cake (cut to a female form, with snowballs for boobs, toasted cocnut down below, and split cherries for nipples)

Any ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I'll post pictures after the day, thanks!
6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Nintendo/Videogame swap on: January 12, 2006 10:48:16 PM
This is a new thread from the challenge page I posted.

There are so many of us video-gamers out there, and so many ways to craft Smiley

I can't host unfortunately Sad but if anyone wants to take this baby under their wing, I'm sure we'd appreciate it!
7  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. / Nintendo Videogame Challenge on: November 07, 2005 01:23:29 AM
Almost all the gifts especially for guys have some sort of videogame paraphenalia, so why not a challenge?

Nintendo games are good because there's lots of 8bit to choose from, or you could do a series like Final Fantasy, I've seen quite a bit on here.

Anyway just an idea I was surprised nobody had already mentioned. Smiley
8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / MST3K T-shirt, my first! on: October 23, 2005 10:37:56 PM
This is my first stencil!
Well, actually I made another one first, but I gave it away to its recipient before I had my digital camera. So here's another gift for a friend, he's obsessed with Mystery Science Theatre Three Thousand so here's my take:

The front close up. This is how the three sit during the movies if you've never seen the show

The back with the show's moniker
They're a little fuzzy, sorry, and the paint bled a little, but I'm happy for a first start Smiley

Lemme know what you think
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Dresser and End Table PinUp ideas on: August 28, 2005 09:37:24 PM

I recently became the new owner of a pair of free antique round end tables and an old ugly dresser.
I am wondering what to do with them and am thinking of maybe a PinUp theme, like a picture on the tops of the end tables and a series or large picture on the top of the dresser with some sort of decoration on the drawers.

So the questions remain; what color would be suitable for the tables and/or dresser. I'm moving these into a new apartment so I don't already have any color schemes, but I'm planning on painting one of the walls red.

Any help is appreciated,

Oh and does anybody know where to find cheap PinUp pictures? The only collections I've found are like $30.
10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My boyfriend's birthday on: August 26, 2005 10:35:03 PM

I've been a crafster stalker for a while now and have finally summoned the courage to post a project.

My boyfriend's birthday was at the end of July and we've been together for almost a year so I wanted to make something homey and fun. So I made us matching stuffed monsters (really I just fell in love with his and so had to make one for me) and a nintendo belt buckle.

Special thanks to Nina for getting me started on my monsters!

This is Hermes, my boyfriend's companion

And Henrietta, for moi

The happy couple, I know they're a little snaggled toothed, but I love them.

Aand the belt, sorry its a little screwy

So yay for my first post, but definitely not my last.
