41  eyes and wings and more gores then an angry bull + UPDATE in action with Liars in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bleachrainbow on: August 09, 2007 11:38:33 PM
Once again returning with some crazy t-shirt surgery. Not quite as extreme as https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=158481.msg1589074#msg1589074 The Red Monstrosity, but still pretty rocking. I think I used 8 white t-shirts total.

A little earlier in the summer, I'd been doodling around with some interesting uniform ideas for a story I was knocking around in my head. The girls uniform I came up with was really rather pretty, so I decided to make it. After stocking up on some messed up white T's from work (I work at a screen printer's) I remade them into this little number.

The yoke is stenciled with gold fluid acrylic (mixed with fabric medium) for the wing/eye design. The skirt is many many triangular gores cut out the backs of the shirts in varying lengths widths.

And yes, the shorts I'm wearing underneath I also made from the t-shirts, and stenciled to match because I'm crazy like that.

Yoke detail

And because you can't have enough wings, worn with my crazy ripped fabric wings.

And because I did indeed wear it out....here's me with Liars and my mates after the Liars/Interpol concert~!

42  Happy floral faux-wrap dress and mustard bib top in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by bleachrainbow on: July 27, 2007 08:37:11 PM

My second attempt at a little wrap dress,  the first went horribly awry, but this one is better~! Maybe a little too low for my liking though.

And a happy little mustard yellow bib top!

I've sold so much of what I've sewn this summer...that I have nothing for myself! So these are most certainly staying in my possession~~

43  goats make me happy in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by bleachrainbow on: July 25, 2007 07:35:52 PM
so I made this one~! I sew a lot of clothing (people clothing, not doll clothing) but I haven't made a stuffed animal in many years. It was rather fun. Plus her dress matches one that I made!

44  free window=new canvas in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by bleachrainbow on: July 23, 2007 08:24:54 PM
So being the poor student I am, I'll paint on anything I can scrounge up from garbage day, and one week this lovely old window showed up curbside so I took the challenge.

Many weeks later, the final results:

A double portrait in horns.  The figures are painted on the right side of the glass, the brown arches on the back, and the backdrop is fabric that has been attached to the back of the frame.

So you can see the whole thing. For scale, I think it's approximately 3 feet square.

46  frightening kitty shirt, underbust jumper, ect. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by bleachrainbow on: July 12, 2007 09:54:55 PM

Made from one gigantic mumu monstrosity of a cat lady shirt.

Also a product of a mumu of awesomeness. It was a day to buy mumus I guess. Seriously, I don't think it was originally meant to be underbust. It was just that big to fit all dat booby in. But anyway. After much basting, fiddling, tearing out and getting pissed off that it wasn't lying right, I finally got a happy bubble-hem underbust jumper. yay. The inside is a bit of a wreck though~

And in keeping with today's theme, another frightening use of glitter. Sweet. Taken down a notch, sleeves and neck reworked, ties added. Go UArts Unicorns!

47  playing with infrared photography~ in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by bleachrainbow on: July 11, 2007 03:24:33 PM
okay, first off: None of these pictures has been photoshopped in any way other than to resize them. I've been playing around with taking infrared photographs by using exposed negatives as a filter, and have had some really interesting results, though I want to mess around with it a bit more, there's still some problems I need to tweak (like the blurriness)

Anyway, here's a few of my favorites that I took this afternoon:

Same shot at two different light settings:

And these ended up not really infrared, but still neat looking:

A shirt I made to bring down to my girlfriend (I'm heading from Jersey to Maryland to visit her~) inspired by some half-remembered conversation we had very late one night.

49  a jackalope and his girl--glass painting in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by bleachrainbow on: June 21, 2007 07:15:22 PM
At school this winter I developed a fondness for painting on glass--it's nice and smooth, and I can usually find old frames and windows for free. This is the latest piece I've done:

The figures are painted on the front of the glass, the brown background is on the back, and the landscape is on the backing cardboard. When you see it in person, it gives a subtle depth to the painting.

As a comparison, this is before the backing cardboard was painted, that part remains clear and can be changed out if I want.

Once I am finished re-backing it, I'll post up the double-portrait I did in a double-paned window, it's my favorite glass peice.

50  Two lovely new dresses from my personal sweatshop in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by bleachrainbow on: June 17, 2007 09:47:07 PM
I'm on strike until I give myself better working conditions.

The last from Erica, Inc:

Comfy teal/stripey jersey knit dress. It pooches a bit around my thighs, but that's because mine are quite wide, and I made this to be a general size medium. So hopefully it will fit it's new owner a little better.  A quick little pattern to draft up, and it was really rather easy, I though matching the stripes would be a nightmare, but it wasn't bad at all.

With Belt


Yellow jersey and some odd cotton fabric for the bodice. Fitted button up bodice and bubble skirt. First attempt at a bubble hem, went fairly well, I think. I had to double up the cotton for the bodice, as it was a little thin, and I think it got a little too bulky, but otherwise I am please.
