1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Triangle scarves from jersey? on: February 17, 2009 01:53:13 PM
Hai, gais . . .

No, but really.  I bought a few extra yards of jersey material in magenta and black, and I'm wondering about trying something.  But I don't want to have wasted the fabric if it looks crappy.  Poor college student, no excuse to be wasteful.

You guys know those scarves that are super "in" right now?  I'm talking about the ones that are styled after keffiyehs and are ALL THE RAGE at Hot Topic right about now.  Well, I think they happen to be the most comfortable and cute thing in the world, but fifteen bucks a pop is a little excessive for me . . .  Again, cheap as hell.

What I'm thinking is cutting a triangle from my jersey, three or so inches larger than the desired body of the scarf, and cutting that remaining three inches into half-inch fringe on the two legs of the triangle. 

Anyone think this sounds cute?  Ridiculous, hideous, precious?  Your opinions, please.

And thank you so much for your time.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I made a wa-lolita outfit! Picture fat. on: July 25, 2008 10:09:05 PM
I haven't typed that whole word in the longest time.  Lo-li-ta.  Feels weird. 


Would you like photos?

I'll deliver: 


Lookit mah sleeves!  I made them short so I could learn to use them.  I may switch them out later, I may not.

Impatiens don't have a smell.  I just thought it would be cute.

Me and mah buddy Kisha.  Her dress is BABY, THE STARS SHINE BRIGHT.

I made the whole outfit from scratch, no patts.  Kimono top, skirt, bow, and obi.  The obi was kinda very fake, and I'll fix it later.  Any questions, just ask.

Anywho, waloli.  Next I want to do something like the pink wa loli shoot that Kana did.  'Twould be very cute. 
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Kigurumin pattern help. on: April 10, 2008 02:08:24 PM
A kigurumin is a girl in Japan who dresses something like the girls here: http://i171.photobucket.com/albums/u284/hiromi_tan/kigurumin.jpg

The ones in full body character costumes.  Although I will prolly draft the pattern from scratch, any known patterns of pajamas and the like would help with the process.  She's going to be a mouse.  A purple one.  And I get to do her makeup.  I'm utterly thrilled about this!

Thank you.^^
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Anyone here know anything about wa-lolita? on: December 23, 2007 11:46:13 AM
It's a style of lolita based off of traditional japanese clothing like kimono and yukata.

I want to do a wa-loli outfit for an upcoming anime convention.  My initial design had no sleeves+elbow-length kimono-sleeve armwarmers (Yuna inspired).  However, I haven't seen any wa-loli designs that look like this, so I wanted to change it to a connected sleeves as seen
here ---> http://littlegirl.fc2web.com/dolls/kako-warori.htm

My issue is that with the outfits displayed as they are, I can't tell how long these sleeves are, and because I want to do this right, and I have a wee-bit of perfectionist in me, I'm obsessing.

So if you know about wa-loli, or just have a good eye, help me?
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / An interesting perspective on blocky shirts. Also, slightly pic heavy. on: July 30, 2007 11:13:16 AM
Eeee, my first topic.  And here I was thinking it would be in knitting or crocheting.

Okay, so I got a cheap tee shirt at Eckard(Sp?).  It wasn't flattering in the least, and I had really been wanting to braid.  So I cut the sleeves off, braided what was left and sewed the braided straps to the back again.  It looked like this. 
Uurgh sideways.  I's a bum.
And my reaction was astonishment at the fact that my boobies were GONE.  I couldn't find them!  So I made another braid from one of the discarded sleeves and stuck an empire on it.  And we had this:   Crappy picture, I know.

BOOBIES!!!  I was so excited when I finally found them.

And for fun, here's a sleeve detail, so I can show off my pretty braiding.  I know, I know.  Sideways.
8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / One-year old boy . . . on: March 22, 2007 10:36:40 AM

9  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / M*A*S*H on: March 16, 2007 10:09:52 PM
Umm . . .  I've never stenciled except with dollar-stencils from Hell.  I was wondering if anyone here would like to help me out. 

I found a tiny picture of the original title shot of the show, and a site that goes through the details of how it was like a combination of two rather common "military fonts."  That's http://hans.presto.tripod.com/fonts/mash.html.  Neither of the aforementioned fonts is precisely what I need and I'd rather not spend $35 on them.

Basically, I'm looking for someone to help me find or develop a stencil of the M*A*S*H logo.  It'd be an exciting first project.  Also, I found this picture.  It is beyond me to upload images tonight, so I'll send it to you if you can help.  PMs AWAY!! 

Is there some sort of Secret Stencilers' Society in the sewers?  Somebody?  Please?
