1  My feet will EXTERMINATE you in Shoes: Completed Projects by kelly_bear on: August 20, 2008 01:54:54 AM
I started working on these back when series 4 of Doctor Who was just starting up. I finished one and then moved on to other crafty pursuits for a while after realizing how impossible painting a Cyberman on a shoe was. You see, the original plan was to have a Dalek and a Cyberman on opposite shoes shooting at eachother. (Think epic Doomsday battle. Seriously, how awesome would that be?!) Anyway, that plan was abandoned in favor of another Dalek.
Sigh. I like Daleks more than Cybermen anyway. Tongue

I decided to finish these up tonight after several months of seeing them sitting half finished in my closet doing nothing but gathering dust.

The heels (they both say EXTERMINATE if you couldn't guess):

While they're not perfect, I think they're pretty fabulous. It's too bad that nobody here in Florida knows what the heck Daleks are!

2  The Penguins get a facelift in Shoes: Completed Projects by kelly_bear on: April 09, 2008 04:00:16 PM
I don't think I posted these here when I painted them last January. I just repainted them last night and wanted to share the story of the Penguinified Converse with you all.

Anyway, I decided to paint penguins on the toes of my very first pair of Converse on a whim one night last January instead of studying.

I (and seemingly everyone else) loved them. They quickly became my favorite pair of shoes ever. As my favorite pair of shoes, they got worn a lot. They took me trips across the country, through dusty fields, to concerts, you name it.

They held up surprisingly well until just recently when I went to a really rough concert with my best friend. I let her wear them and they got a bit scuffed up when we were unwillingly caught in a mosh pit.

(This was us waiting to get in.)

Even though the damage wasn't all that bad, I decided they needed a little refreshing. I'm a bit picky when it comes to flaws. Lips sealed Besides, I had more studying to put off last night!

So after about a million cotton balls full of nail polish remover and a couple hours of painting, here they are again:

The rejuvenated Penguins are ready for more adventures!

3  Ravenclaw Sesame in Knitting: Completed Projects by kelly_bear on: March 24, 2008 12:18:09 PM
Wow. I started this sweater last January and just finished it last week. I got really frustrated while fitting the sleeves into the armholes last summer and packed it away to be forgotten about at the bottom of my knitting bag. I finally decided I'd suck it up and finish the darn thing a couple weeks ago. Although there are several things I don't like about this sweater (most of them are mistakes on my part) I still think it's pretty darn fabulous. You can't deny the awesomeness of hand knitted geek pride, man! It's a shame I'm like 8 months late for last summer's Potter mania. Tongue

Pattern:  Magknits Sesame

Yarn: Lion Brand Wool-Ease in Navy and Oxford Grey

4  The Mighty Boosh Converse (pic heavy) in Shoes: Completed Projects by kelly_bear on: January 29, 2008 10:54:14 PM
Check out my latest feat of dorkiness!  Grin
The Mighty Boosh shoes, or Booshy shoes as I've been calling them.
I totally love The Mighty Boosh. It's absolutely amazing and one of my favorite shows.

Anyway... As I was looking at my collection of Converse last week, I noticed the purple pair with dots on them that I wasn't particularly fond of. (They're also a half size small and smoosh my toes if I wear them for too long.)

I decided that they could use a trip through my warped imagination.
They came out looking like this:

Awesome, y/y???

They also glow in the dark (it's awesomee!!), but you'll just have to take my word on that. Apparently taking pictures in the dark doesn't really work. Heh.

6  Muse and Motion City Soundtrack shirts! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by kelly_bear on: January 01, 2008 03:24:14 PM
I've been busy today!
I started off with making a Motion City Soundtrack t-shirt from an old shirt that I never wear. I even had a MCS par-tay and listened to all of their albums while working on it! Woo hoo!
Here's how it turned out:

(Yes, the shirt really is that obnoxiously bright. It's just not as orange as the picture portrays.)
I'm disappointed that the S bled, but other than that, I think it looks pretty cool! I was considering making bridges for the O's, D, R, & A, but a.) I'm lazy and b.) I liked the look of them all filled in like that.
The stencil I used is from The Stencilry's Motion City Soundtrack page. It was waaay too dorktastic for me to pass up! I've been drooling over it for a few weeks now. Cheesy

After I was done with that, I made this Muse logo shirt. The cutting was awesome and mindless, but placing straight on the shirt was an enormous pain in the behiney. I still think it looks crooked.

Once again, the letters bled. (What's up, freezer paper? I've never had this problem with you before!) I'm a bit of a perfectionist, so the bleeding is really getting to me. I do like the slightly faded look, though! I didn't want to load a lot of paint on there, because it always seems to end up cracking after a trip through the dryer.
The image I used was from a Google search, which I then enlarged.

What do you guys think?

7  Bleach stenciled Atreyu shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by kelly_bear on: August 20, 2007 06:05:15 PM
Hi guys! Just wanted to share my new shirt with you. My best friend and I went to see the Family Values Tour last week. By the time we got to the merchandise table, a majority of the bands had come to pick their stuff up already and I didn't get to buy myself an Atreyu shirt. I decided to make one instead of ordering one online, because where's the fun in that?
So here is the result of a $3 black Hanes boys t-shirt, a bottle of bleachy water, a stencil from the stencilry, and a little patience with an x-acto knife:

Cheap and crafty is the way to be!

This shirt was inspired in part by normashelleyjean's awesome live.love.burn.die shirt (she used the same stencil on the back of her shirt and it turned out way cool Smiley )

8  Don't Panic in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by kelly_bear on: July 27, 2007 12:19:38 AM
I woke up today itching to paint some jeans with my new fabric paint. Here's what I ended up with! I did the back pockets.


Yes!  Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy pants! Not to toot my own horn or anything, but they certainly contain gargantuan amounts of awesome.  Grin
I'm not sure if they're done yet. As you might have noticed, they're conspicuously lacking the number 42.

Hope you like my pants! Smiley

Wow! Everyones Sesames are absolutely gorgeous!

Does anyone have any seaming tips to help prevent weird boxy shoulders?
I look like a linebacker Embarrassed

(Yes, I'm totally rocking the dorkiness in both my Harry and the Potters band t-shirt AND my Ravenclaw house colors Sesame.)

10  Leetle Tiny iPod Nano Sock! in Knitting: Completed Projects by kelly_bear on: December 31, 2006 03:20:39 PM
I got an iPod Nano for Christmas and I didn't want it to get scratched or anything,so I decided I needed a little case for it.
But who wants to pay so much money for one of those official iPod socks when you can have so much more fun making your own?!

I whipped out my US 0 (might be 00's.Not entirely sure) and some embroidery floss and went to work..

Now a few days later I have my own cute Nano sock! Cheesy I love how it turned out!

My iPod is now toasty warm and cozy. Wink
