1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Pink Spider Lolita Dress on: July 27, 2009 02:51:43 PM
This dress I've had made for a while, but I just recently revamped it for a meetup I did with some other friends.  I'm so in love with this fabric its not even funny.

Posing with the lovely Gabriel (who is borrowing my lovely Purple Polkadot Jumperskirt):

A decent shot of how it looks from the back.

You can't see them very well, but I also made the wristcuffs and rings that go with it.  I'll post close ups of those later.  The wristcuffs were really simple.  Hobby lobby has elasticized black lace that I cut to fit my wrists and I tied a pretty ribbon with it, but I think it completed my outfit.

I made this for a girl on livejournal.  She chose the fabric to match a hat that she bought.

Based on this dress:

My friend gave me the idea to make these hats for the Widdle Monster concerts.  Widdle Monsters are this totally awesome local Chicago band that dress up in furry suits!

There's more coming soon, but I haven't gotten the chance to finish them yet.

I made this purse to sell, but no one wants it so I think I'm going to keep it for myself.

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Music Note Lolita Dress on: March 24, 2009 08:56:53 AM
I recently made this lolita dress for a customer.  I hope she likes it!

The girl wearing the dress is a bit too small for it, but my dressform broke and had no other way to photograph it worn.  ;_;
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Lolita Purple Polkadot JSK Jumperskirt Dress on: June 19, 2008 09:51:23 AM
I just finished the prototype for a pattern I drafted for a plus-sized lolita dress.  I <3 how it turned out and I love love love the colors!

7  Illinois / Illinois: North / ACEN Meetup? on: May 12, 2008 07:16:23 PM
I saw that quite a few people attend ACEN!  I was just wondering if all the lovely craftsters would like too meetup there.  I'll be in the artist alley alot of the time, so I may not have a ton of time, but hey, its an idea. :3
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / OMFG Awesome Bustle Ball Gown (Img Obese) on: March 23, 2008 08:45:11 PM
I am attending the Charity Ball at ACEN this year, so I decided to make a ball gown (total cost: $13).  I couldn't get a good view of the front, but here's a decent shot of the back:

I had to fiddle with contrast in order to show details, because everything looked like a giant black blob!

A closeup of the bustle:

The center back:

The front top:

Front bottom (I think I'm going to add roses at the points that are tacked up, I just don't have any handy):

Focus on the straps  (you can see the shirring really well):

Closeup of fabric:

I couldn't get a full shot of the front, sorry.  My camera hates me.  ;_;

Comments are appreciated and (constructive) criticism is welcome.
9  Illinois / Illinois: North / Suburban Crafting/Sewing Party? on: November 10, 2007 08:08:52 PM
I live in the Lockport/Romeoville area, fairly close to Plainfield, Joliet, Naperville, and Bolingbrook.  I am organizing a crafting night every 3rd tuesday (Starting November 3) in my area.  I was wondering if anyone on the forums in the area would be interested in attending something like this.  I'm basically organizing this because a few friends of mine have had trouble getting their cosplay ready for ACEN in May, and it manages their time a bit better and I get to teach them a few tricks.  Each month we choose 2 movies and I will cook for everyone.  The only things I ask is that you brink your own supplies and one thing to share with everyone (a bag of chips or a bottle of pop.  Nothing major) because things like this get majorly pricey on my end, especially when I have to make 2 separate main dishes, because half of my friends are vegetarian.

Leave me a messege if you would be interested in something like this.
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Lolita Kodona Newsboy Pants and Hat! Super Awesome! Most Images Removed ;_; on: September 09, 2007 09:58:30 AM
Ok, I work for a magazine called La Vie en Rose, a lolita magazine.  I do a style article in each issue for a different style of lolita.  I recently did a photo suite with a friend in Kodona, and heres a few pictures (the ones we did not use for the magazine, therefore they are a bit blurry).  I made the hat and the pants, and my friend had the shirt, boots, and socks already.  Angela, that same friend, modeled because she is super awesome!!!

I'm sorry, but I had to take a majority of the pictures down due to legal reasons, but you guys can have this one:
