1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Saints Row Swap! No one swap should have all that powah? on: September 08, 2011 09:57:31 AM
This will probably be a bit of a stretch.

I know there's been a bunch of gaming swaps recently, but is there anyone else here who is DYING for Saints Row the Third to come out? Gat plushies? Third Street swag? Anybody interested?

4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Steampunk Sidearm! (nerf mod) on: February 21, 2011 07:47:44 PM

Tadaa! She started life as a Nerf Nitefinder. I took her all apart, primed her up, then spent a week or so painting and detailing and ect. Plastic-friendly primer, and a whole bunch of acrylic paint! Then I buffed it up with some Rub'n'Buff in something like spanish copper - Rub'n'Buff is my new favorite favorite when it comes to steampunking. I will now forever swear by it. It does, however, make a great big hot mess.

Then I took the Amaryllisroze's method of doing rivets - aka puff paint. Genius, I tell you. My hand, maybe not so steady, so they're sort of uneven... but meh. They look good from a distance, so. Then I did a gloss sealer coat over the whole thing, and pieced it all back together. Embellishment to cover that horrible nerf logo... and tada!

UPDATE: tentative! signups 3/1 - 3/10, sendouts 4/3. opinions welcome!
6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / BORDERLANDS swap! on: March 10, 2010 06:15:08 AM
Figured I'd throw it out there and see if anyone else is game.

I'm obsessed with the game Borderlands! Best game I've played in ages. And they keep making it sweeter with all the beautiful DLC... anyone else? Polymer clay claptraps? Siren-inspired scarves? Crimson Lance knitted armwarmers? Y/N?...
7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / time for another comic book character swap? on: November 28, 2008 07:22:26 PM
Explanation: I'm going through a major ridiculous Harley Quinn/Joker obsession at the moment.

I know we've had at least one of these swaps before, but I couldn't remember how long ago.  And I couldn't find a recent thread here in the discussion forums (though if I missed one, please feel free to point me to it!)  Anyway, I'm craving for some comicy delicious crafting times.  Anyone else?  Cheesy

I'd love to hold off signups till after Christmas, if anyone else is interested in doing this.  Heaven knows we all have enough stuff to make before then!
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Harley Quinn fleece scarf of love! on: November 24, 2008 03:15:29 PM
So this project was really pretty shamefully easy to make.  The idea popped in my head a few days ago and wouldn't let go till I did it.  Whacha think?


^ lol @ deer in headlights look.

It's pretty long, I had it wrapped twice in that first picture, I think, and here it is just once.  The part where the two are stitched together?  Look pretty rough-tastic irl. 

And the diamonds are fused on.  All in all, a cozy little late afternoon project. 

*goes to chase around the Joker*
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / fuzing fleece on fleece on: November 24, 2008 02:00:25 PM
So, I want to put a fleece applique kind of a patch on top of a fleece garment, and I was thinking of using a layer of interfacing webbing between them then ironing it together.  My concern is... can you iron fleece?  Will it, like, melt?  Hah, a pretty noobish question to be sure, I wanted to make sure before I did anything rash and ruined my project.

Thanks, friends!  Cheesy
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Hey Puddin'! Harley Quinn shirt. on: October 03, 2008 06:52:40 PM
Warning: ghetto-fabulous bathroom mirror shots ahead!

So recently I've been having this intense obsession with Harley Quinn and the Joker.  Yes, I know, I'm about fifteen years late on this one.  They're just SO ADORABLE in that psychotic, domestic-disturbance kind of way.  Love!

Anyway I'm not quite bold enough to wear a full-body spandex jump suit, so instead I made myself this tee shirt!



I really just chopped up two cheap-o skinny tees from wal mart.  My seams are all puckery because I don't have a serger, and the material was really thin.

Action shot!

Bonus Harley makeup!
