I love the skirt the most!  Anyone who can pull that look off with such confidence is alright by me.  Grin  Nice job.  You look great!

This is the sort of things that in cartoons make the guys make sounds like "AAAHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOGA!"  while their eyes pop out.

I bow before your genius!

Wow!  You have some serious precision going on there!  I'm so in awe!
Beautiful work.

"So does he want to wear the skirt, too?"

I think he would except that I hardly ever take it off.  Cheesy

This is by far the coolest thing I've ever sewn!  Grin

My awesome bf suggested that I make this out of his camos, even though he loved wearing them. I made the patches by running fabric taped to cardstock through my printer.

Shoot!  I somehow overlooked the section for toys.  I suppose this would be better placed over there.  Could someone move it, or is there a way I can do it?  Thanks!  My apologies.  Loooooong weekend!  Cheesy

Hi everyone!  Meet Thing One and Thing Two.  Thing one has the barbershop quartet mustache.  Thing Two is sporting an odd sort of mohawk. Smiley

If you don't know what poi are, they are various objects dangling from string or chain of some sort, used to spin while dancing or just moving around.  Some of them have flags, some glow, some are on fire.  These are fuzzy!

They were a bit labor intensive, mainly because it is HARD AS HELL to cut a tennis ball with dull scissors and a pair of wire-clippers.  Lips sealed  Neither is it easy to rip the fuzzy stuff off the ball to get a template for the fur.  I only got it done because I tend to get obsessed easily.  Cheesy

I think it rocks!  Skirts for me need to be either ankle length or above the knee.  Anything in between looks wretched. 

I'm actually in the process of making one very similar with a pair of urban camo pants that my bf gave me (even though he really loved them) so I could do this (his own suggestion, because he is the BEE's KNEES!)    I'll post pics when I'm done! 

Nice work! Thanks for sharing!

Oh...you thank me now, but just wait till you get lost in there!  Cheesy

If you go for it, I'd love to see the results!

Thanks!  They are made from synthetic hair used for extensions.  You can get it from beauty supply places or order it online.  I used a 27" "Yaki Pony" (100% Toyokalon).  It's basically loose hair sort of tied up in a doubled over pony tail.

The idea is to take tiny little sections and anchor them on something, back comb the hell out of them, twist them up, then use a hairdryer or steamer to melt the fibers a bit so that they stay in place.  Very easy.  Very time consuming.  Very cool!  Grin  I have to have something to keep me out of trouble. lol.

There are a couple of great resources for making them, as well as all sorts of other fake hair.

http://www.doctoredlocks.com/store/demo/tutorials.html   (scroll down and look at the cool section on dreadlocks.  They teach you how to do transitions and other cool stuff.  I'm about to try that with the burgundy and some black!)

If you decide to give it a go and you have any questions, I'll be happy to answer them if I can.

Be well!
