21  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: Fashion Doodling Anyone? on: February 25, 2007 12:24:27 PM
One of these days I may contribute some costume plates of mine. Although I don't usually do those when they aren't due for a project. Now I'm working two medieval costume plates, one for a evil, self involved woman and another for a kind, humble, working class man. Maybe I missed this earlier in the thread, but are you guys using watercolor or what? I draw my figures first in my sketchbook, then I draw my costumes on tracing paper. Then I copy them with a copy machine onto bristol board (thickest that will go through a copy machine without any trouble is 90lb.) I usually use watercolor and highlight it with acrylic. I'm not sure how I can show you guys them, since they're too big to scan.
22  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / help with rockstar themed birthday on: September 21, 2006 09:00:34 AM
Ok...so I'm the first person out of all of my friends to turn 21. So I'm throwing myself my own birthday part. I know, lame, right? But I don't trust my boyfriend with parties so I'm taking it into my own hands. I need ideas for decorations. Sofar what I'm doing is I have all of these old records that were destined to become bowls (bought them for like a few dollars for the whole lot of them) and I was going to spray them gold and hang them on the wall like gold records (this is my boyfriend's idea, his dad works in the recording industry) I have an extremely limited budget. I'm doing like rice crispies and candy since there's a lot of halloween candy for cheap out there. I'm kind of copying some ideas from that new Seventeen magazine out there that suggests dipping white roses into red paint for decor but instead of that I'm doing white or red into black paint with glitter. Any other ideas?

My birthday is on the 7th of and my parents ALWAYS threw me a halloween party, even though my birthday is so early in the month and I loved it. They would autumn up a lot of traditional party games...like you know the one where you relay the egg on a spoon? Like they would get those little tiny pumpkins instead. They would make a jack-o-lantern beanbag toss or a pin the nose on the pumpkin. One year they used purple frosting on my cupcakes and it turned all of our mouths black. Ooo..and those lollypop ghosts and stuff...Enjoy it while you can Smiley

i will admit right here in front of everybody that i am one costumer who is not at all entranced with the SCA or anything having to do with medieval times.  i am far too happy with air conditioning and vaccines.  Smiley 

I'm a costume design student also admittedly not at all enticed by the SCA....who can live without blue jeans when you're painting or something? But wow! those robes are beauteous.

I have that pattern. When I saw the pics earlier in that post I immediately thought of it. I'm scared to sew it, though because I would hate to use aaaaallll that material and hate how the dress looks on me because I'm so short (5 feet even) and sometimes I get lost in too many clothes.
27  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 12 ENTRIES / shiny skull apartment decor on: June 01, 2006 02:40:45 PM

Say hello to my kitchy apartment decorations. I wanted to hang them above my bed but they just look so cute with my books up there I couldn't move them! I built a frame out of gold-painted popsicle sticks (108 were used, plenty more were maimed and glued to make this.) The lightning bolts on the side are made of chenille stems, and the the flowers are wagonwheel pasta painted pink. The skulls hand painted fabric using my favorite metallic fabric acryllic paint. And I added my star-shaped jewels because that's just my style. Thanks a bunch for looking!

I think this might be the easiest dress i've ever sewn. This looks pretty much like my drawing, loose all over then cinched in at the waist by a belt or a ribbon. I bought some ribbon this afternoon but haven't cut it for this outfit. I'm also making some jackets and boleros to go with it...and probably will make this same dress over a few more times in different fabrics since it's so versitile. Ugh, I'm such a freak...
29  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / my new number-y dress on: May 29, 2006 01:34:27 PM

I think it may have to be a size smaller next time, what do you think? It's number fabric with a belt. I'm thinking of getting a ribbon to wear with it instead. Thanks for your comments/suggestions!
edit: for some reason photobucket is messing up this photo...I'm so sorry if this is all messed up looking!
