1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Mermaid -tastic Costume on: November 17, 2008 11:40:41 AM
So I've wanted to be a mermaid for ages but i always wanted to wear it to school since i wouldn't be doing much else in it besides trick or treating.  But this was the year...

It is based on a bra and large white polyester skirt from goodwill and then with nets, necklaces, shells, dye, lace "seaweed" and lots of sequins it became my mermaid dream

another full shot, can you see the sheeshell in my hair? the back is full of them

the back is "tied in a bow with seaweed (aka lace dyed green) and is plastered in sequin scales, i have not back shots so i may add one later, but the side is kind of shown in these next few photos

a random bleeker at the bus stop...

glitter, my shell necklace, and Jesus looming over my shoulder

2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Vintage Voodoo Doll Costume (img. heavy) on: December 31, 2007 02:17:46 PM
I was inspired by this dress (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=146186.0) a couple years ago, and in my quest for another awesome halloween costume I came up with the idea of voodoo doll.  Although that sounds kind of ugly and uninteresting, I mixed it with a vintage 40's sort of look for a somewhat sexy voodoo doll like appearance!

dying from a broken heart (or something)

best normal full body shot I have

the pins where made of coat hangers and Styrofoam balls, held in place by my little heart pocket

makeup shot, mind you this is in photography class after a day of school so it's all kinda worn off a bit

Last shot just because I like it
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Footie Pajamas!! for big people on: November 18, 2006 02:19:25 PM
my boyfriend has requested a pair of footie PJ's for Christmas, i think he really really wants some b/c he even offered to buy the fabric and just have me make them for him randomly.  so far i have no idea how to begin i may
  • check out little kid ones for an idea of what the parts look like
  • buy flannel 2 piece PJ's and hook them together and buy another pants or shirt and use that fabric for the feet!
if have any other ideas or tips for starting (especially feet tips) i would love you forever!!!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / lleva (to wear? to carry?) on: November 05, 2006 01:35:31 PM
i have this sheet i picked up on a run to the thrift store, it's white with cute little dino's on it.  I was orginally planning on making a rounded tote like bag, but then my dad commented that it might end up looking like a dipaer bag!! now i'm terrifeid to do anything with it! so what do you think? i may make a clothing item  out of it if i think of a good idea, but i just don't want to waste it!  (if you would like pictures of the print i'll add one)

5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Theme/ideas/general help needed 19 yr. old birthday party on: September 04, 2006 12:07:23 PM
upon questioning him for what he wants for his birthday he came up with the idea that he wanted a party, since he hadn't had one since he was little.  I mean last year i made him a record bowl, a pillowcase, and a hand drawn card and he loved it since no one really does much for his b-day anymore.

FACTS: he's turning 19, likes cars (drifting not nascar), possibly up to a costume party, friends are known as the chaos crew, likes hardcore music, does not drink so no keg parties lol, I'm afraid  a toga party would lead to drinking, I'm only 16 but i get along w/ his friends some of who are older than he, wants a cookie cake. (recipes welcome!),

So far my possible theme ideas are:
(ones w/ stars are the ones I'm more preferable to)
-chuck-e-cheese (but it's rather expensive)
*capture the flag (at local park)
-kickball party (at park)
-toga party
*car party? (i like this idea b but am limited in ideas)
*heros and villians (he's a ninja turtle boy lol)
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / black and white polka dot dress on: August 20, 2006 02:37:03 PM
i made this from one of my mom's old 90's school teacher bag dresses.  the fabric is kinda weird and shower curtain ish but oh well it's still one of my favorite Revamp projects! btw we were at the movies seeing the devil wears prada and  my friends sister was making fun of my massive clothing collection and commented something along the lines of my dress being designer!!!

this ones a little darker but gives you a better idea of the length
7  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / the pacman gang (halloween costumes!) on: August 20, 2006 02:30:27 PM
so here is what my friends and i were for halloween this year, everyone loved it, and it was a great way to include everyone (boyfriend who was a little old for trick or treating & best girl friends)
this is mid trick or treat so we're a little crazy but it's all good.  I based this of another crafsters amazing post so i don't mean to take credit.
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / my magazine purse. I <3 it on: August 20, 2006 02:25:06 PM
so i made this a while ago with a magazine and some packing tape.  i followed the idea of another craftster on here, but i love the shape/size of mine.  It took way longer than i thought it would but i think it's way worth it.  People always ask me where i got it and many think it's from old navy due to an old nazy ad i used in it!

9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / my poptart pouch- or mp3 player cozy - or change purse on: August 20, 2006 02:19:50 PM
So i whipped up this cute little guy out of felt yesterday and it came out a little bigger than planned but oh well, no it can hold BOTH my zen micro mp3 player and earbuds!  Grin
