1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Platinum Chain Maille Necklace on: July 15, 2009 08:42:02 PM
Hey all,

My fiancee doesn't have a craftster account, so sometimes I like to post the wonderful things he makes so that he can get credit where credit is due. He made me this necklace for Christmas last year. The links are made of platinum, and he hand-cut each one of them separately and linked them together with pliers. I wear it almost every day and think about how great it is to have a man who knows his tools. Cheesy

Thanks for looking!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Nightcrawler shirt! (and a simple dress.) on: June 20, 2009 07:43:13 AM
I had an old white T-shirt, which is not allowed. So now it features Nightcrawler from X-men! On the front is the noise he makes when he teleports, complete with comic-book kitsch:

And on the back is his silhouette, in gloriously tacky fabric marker:

Also, because I didn't feel like starting a new post: I LOVE those cheater dresses from Joanne Fabrics. You know, where the fabric comes with crinkly bits at the top, and you just sew it to fit your body size? I also added a green sash. It took, like, half a sec. I also was too lazy to actually put it on. Noticing a pattern here?

Hope you like!
3  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Image heaviness? on: June 17, 2009 08:23:36 AM
I sincerely apologize if this has already been posted: Does anyone else think it would be a good idea to have an icon that means "picture heavy"? Like the little smilies you can put next to your post topic. That way, people wouldn't have to take up space in their title to say "image heavy". Is this a plausible idea?
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Prom Dress... only a year late! on: June 01, 2009 04:30:20 PM
I figured since craftster has been a flurry of prom dreses lately I might as well post mine from my senior prom in 2008. I'd tell you what pattern it was made from... but I forget. You can't really tell, but there's little silver beads on the front in the middle of the neckline, and the skirt has a layer of transparent tulle-esque fabric over the silk. I love it.

5  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Horseman's Tunic? on: May 19, 2009 04:47:24 PM
My fiance is looking for a pattern for a horseman's tunic for SCA/ Markland wear. Does anyone know where he might find a good pattern? It's slightly different from a T-tunic, it has a slit up the front and the sleeves usually have two different colors. So far Google has severely disappointed me...
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Beatles themed bedroom [EXTREMELY IMG HEAVY] on: December 21, 2008 07:08:12 PM
I actually finished this project when I was a freshman in high school and never got around to posting it. I was inspired by a Beatles-themed dresser that I saw on here, and since they are my favorite band, I decided to paint my entire room with a smattering of Beatles lyrics. Now that I'm a freshman in college and my mom is trying to sell the house, it will all have to be painted over. :/ Ah well, easy come, easy go.

Over my mirror ("Happiness is a Warm Gun" lyrics coming out of the gun):

Over my closet:

On the head of my bed:

Thanks for looking!
7  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Chain Maille on: December 21, 2008 06:31:10 PM
I want to emphasize that I take no credit for this. This hand-linked chain maille gorget was made by my wonderful fiancee. We participate in medieval reenactment with the Society for Creative Anachronism, and as part of it we engage in battles with other reenactors wearing full armor. Since my neck is too small for most regular gorgets (metal or leather collars that protect the throat), my talented boy made me this chain maille for my helmet armed with nothing but pliers and optimism. :]

We bought the helmet, he just made the chain maille. I love it! Cheesy Thanks for looking
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Simple hat and mittens on: December 21, 2008 06:25:09 PM
I made these for my best friend for Hanukkah. The yarn is very fuzzy. It was kinda hard to work with since I'm a beginning crocheter, but I love the finished product. Not bad for never learning how to read a pattern, huh?  Tongue

Modeled by yours truly. Sorry bout the lighting.

Thanks for looking!
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Harem pants and more cholis! [5 pics] on: December 21, 2008 06:20:04 PM
Like I said, imageshack is no more, so alll my old choli posts are kaput. No matter, I now have a fresh supply! muaahahahaha. This is Molly, my bestie, in an orange 16th-century Mughal top that she made. She is also wearing red harem pants, those poofy cotton pants with elastic around the ankles.

Here's the back, just in case you were wondering.

This is me in a lavender one I made with the same pattern, and an olive patterned skirt. Solid top and patterned skirt was the style in India some 4 centuries ago. Or so I hear.

I, clearly, should be on America's Next Top Model.

Finally, turquoise choli and black harem pants.

Enjoy! If you want the choli pattern, it's here: http://www.pennib.net/FeoragDubh/Patterns/choli203.gif
10  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Medieval Indian Choli on: December 21, 2008 05:36:25 PM
I posted some of these last year, but Imageshack has become... like... not a website. And my photos got eaten. Anyway, a new Photobucket, a new day. This is my best friend Molly at Pennsic 37 this past summer (if you don't that what I'm talking about, don't worry about it). She is wearing a 16th century Mughal choli pattern, which is a touch late for medieval reenactment but whatever. She's pretty cute.

This is me wearing the same pattern (but in a charming shade of forest green). They only take about forty five minutes to make.

The pattern is here if anyone wants it. Smiley
