1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My First Circle Skirt or I Think I'm in Love **With Tut That Includes the Math** on: July 04, 2006 11:27:03 AM
This is a circle skirt I made yesterday out of some fabric I found in the linen closet.  I hope no one needed it.  I made the waistband out of an old Jimi Hendrix t-shirt that I already screwed up in an attempt to recon it.  I think I'll make it into a pillow, now.  And I am fully aware that there are little yellow dots and staind on my skirt.  I couldn't wait to wash it before I took the picture and made this thread.  And the hem is all joogled (which isn't a real word,) but I pretty much knew it was going to come out that way.  But I still love the swishy-ness of this skirt, the color I'm not too fond of.

And about the tut:
On my several pathetic attempts to make something wearable, I've searched for circle skirt tuts.  None of the ones I found seemed to detail exactly how you were supposed to convert your waist measurement to a quarter of a circle.  So yesterday when I decided I'd make one, I was worried about this.  Then I realized it was really quite easy to do the waist measurement-to quarter circle thing.  So I made this tut today.  On the tut, we're working off of a 32 inch waist measurement and an 18 inch long skirt.  If anything is unclear or you have any questions, e-mail me at llergictowonderbread@yahoo.com.  I have a snakeing suspicion that Photobucket is going to resize the picture, so e-mail me if you want me to e-mail it to you, also.
Anyway, now that I've droned on long enough, without further ado, here is the tut:
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Any Scottish craftsters? on: May 02, 2006 09:27:30 AM
OK, I have a bit of a problem, here.
We're doing Shakespeare in school and our little group is doing a scene from Macbeth.  I switched to this group at the last moment 'cause MAcbeth is the play I wanted to do from the beginning. Anyway, to make a long story short, I get to be Macbeth.  That's right, I get to CROSSDRESS!  Yeah-YUH!
So, I need help making a kilt for myself.  Basically, I just need someone to tell me how to do pleats, 'cause I've checked out tutorials and none of them seem to be what I'm looking for.  So any help is really appreciated.
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Halloween Costume in February on: February 15, 2006 09:21:43 AM
So.  I've already decided that for Halloween this year I want to be Gene Simmons (from KISS.)  I already did the preliminary sketches for the costume, hair, and make-up, but I'm having trouble with figuring out what to make the silver chest-plate thing out of.  I thought maybe one of those Batman dress-up kits since they come with a chest plate and I could just spray-paint it silver, but I don't think one of them would fit me since they're made for little kids.  So, for those of you not familiar with the egocentric and fabulous Gene Simmons here is a picture:
Any help and ideas are appreciated, thank you!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / UFW Eagle Stencil on: January 31, 2006 07:56:59 PM
Yeah, I just thought I'd post this. It's kind of an old stencil but it's stayed on for a while.

One other thing I'd like to say, it's hard to take a picture of your own bum, so, needless to say, when I handed the camera to my brother and said "Here.  Take a picture of my butt," he was rather shocked.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Kind of Jeans-to-Skirt...ish... on: January 31, 2006 06:56:33 PM
Alrighty, so I had some jeans that said "give love" down the side but I never really liked the way they fit.  So I cut them apart from the knee down and decided to use them and some really big t-shirts that I had and make a skirt out of it.  It's rather sloppy but I still like it.

*NOTE* Please excuse the extreme clutter and the insufferable diva poses.

You can see the waist-band and yellow swatch better in this one.
The pleats are slightly more visible in this picture.
6  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Chucks: Reconstructed *Slightly Image Heavy* *UPDATED (Got the right shoe pics)* on: January 30, 2006 03:51:18 PM
Ummm...yeah, so I'm sitting around waiting for my mom to take me to the dentist and I was getting bored.  So I whipped ("whipped" is a relative term, here)out some gel/paint markers and start decorating my (dulling) light blue converse.  And these pics are what I came up with on the left shoe (haven't gotten to the right, yet.)

These are the shoes before I paint markered (yes, I totally verbed it...and I also verbed "verb") them and after I took the shoelaces out.

This is the part of the shoes that faces out.

This is the part of the shoes that faces inside.

And this is a close-up of what I put on the back.  Forgive me, but it's a little bit blurry from being an extreme close-up.

I'm especially proud of the outside because...I don't know why.  Just because.  I s'pose I just like the way it looks.

YAY!  Here are the pictures for the right shoe:

There's the outside, which didn't turn out too well.  I was originally going to have the "ohm" chracter on there, but I forgot and just put "Groovy."

There's the back detail, and yes, I am obsessed with the phrase "Give love."

And here's my personal favorite, the inside.  I attempted to make it look lava lamp-ish.  I don't think you can tell very well here, but there's actually some skilled (ha...) shading on the sides closest to the bottom of the shoe.

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Recon Purse Made From Jeans on: December 03, 2005 08:42:12 PM
I've only done a few projects before, but this is my latest one.  This is my first post here, please excuse the poor picture quality, I think there was a smudge on my camera lens, so there's a blurry spot to the right.  Anyway, I just took some of my brothers old shorts, cut the legs off and sewed them shut, used the hem on the bottom of the legs for the straps and sewed some buttons on for a little creative flair.
