Hey all, this is the first swap i've signed up to but I have been making things for my Blythe since returning from Tokyo in August.

This is my Blythe doll Cherry.. she was originally a 'Lounging Lovely'. I bought her from a friend and she isn't in great shape.. I'm going to get all sorts of customisation done to her in the new year!

I made the dress on the picture and the little hat! This was her halloween outfit.. I am trying to make/buy more lolita style thing for her though as that's the style i'm going for with her! The leggings and shoes where borrowed off a friend for this pic and totally not my style!

I am considering buying a Byul doll I have seen online, does anyone here have one? are they easy to make for? How big are their bodies? Sorry so many questions.. this is the one I want...

What do you guys think?

Excited for my first swap!! xx

Hey all... I only have a real fuzzy pic right now, but here is my super fresh new tattoo, cute scissors done old school style with some pink ribbon. This tatt has finished off the top of my left arm! SO exciting!

By the way, it hurts like a bitch round the back/inside of your upper arm!

Please hold on for a decent pic!!!

6  I have discovered an almost endless supply of embroidery patterns! in Needlework: Completed Projects by KatyKamikaze on: November 24, 2010 01:36:38 PM
So!.. My boyfriend has his friend over here in Leeds, visiting from the States. My boyfriend and his friend are both tattooists and while he is here visiting he is going to do me a crafty scissor tattoo!

To say thanks, I decided to make a cool wall hung embroidery for him, and this is when I discovered an almost endless supply of embroidery patterns.. alas, I cannot share a link though... as they are actually my boyfriends old line drawings for tattoos!

I don't know why I didn't think of it before.. every tattoo he does has to have a line drawing so he can make a carbon skin transfer for his tattooing guideline.. these line drawings translate into embroidery PERFECTLY and as my fella kees all his line drawings 'just in case', I have a LOT to get stuck into!

Without further ado.. here is the proof!

I decided to keep the embroidery in the hoop rather than in a frame.

You may be able to tell, I used 3 strands on all the colour and 2 strands on the black as I think it looks generally heavier anyway. I used mainly backstitch for a nice simple, non fussy look with the odd french knot and satin stitch thrown in.

This is how I finished the back, I am not mad on that fabric as I think it's gotten too popular but I had it, and it fits the tattoo theme perfectly, I glued some nice braiding on top of all the straggly bits which also glued the two hoops together which is a bonus!

Close up of the little message I messily embroidered last minute!

Hope you like it! I will be doing loads more from now on! I already spied an amazing sugar skull line drawing he did for a girls tattoo a while ago!

Katy xx

PS: If anything looks wonky I would like to point out that my boyfriend isn't a crap tattooist.. just my stitching messed up his design haha! If anyone wants to know what studio my boyfriend works at just drop me a PM.

PPS: I saved all these to my computer the right way up but every single time I upload with photobucket, It flips them onto their side... so sorry!!

7  Blythe dress test in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by KatyKamikaze on: July 25, 2010 09:30:15 AM
Hey all, so I recently returned from Japan, where I was on holiday with my partner and our friends Fil and Sasha.. another couple. Whilst I was there I had every intention of buying myself a cute doll to bring home, but I blew my money and couldn't get one. Sasha, however, was lucky and nabbed herself an adorable Blythe doll with bright pink hair in Akihabara, the toy district! We had been fabric shopping in Nippori and got some awesome kawaii fabrics, and today Sasha messaged me to mention she would LOVE to make her Blythe dolly something out of some of the fabric we bought there. With this in mind, I decided to do a test run of a pattern I found online in some spare fabric I have.

It was a simple pattern to follow, and once I have bought my own Blythe I think it would be super easy to make new patterns and designs.

So without further ado, here it is!

Pretty plain and simple, but it is only a test run, so we don't ruin our beautiful kawaii fabrics!

Here are the many mainly vintage style hairstyles i have had...

i once had pillarbox red hair!

now it is platinum blonde but in very bad condition so i usually rely on hairpieces and backcombing. I am reluctant to change the colour now as i am more well known on the burlesque circuit and don't want people forgetting who i am!

i love doing crazy things with my hair...

10  Re: Lets See Pics of Tattoos You Designed! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by KatyKamikaze on: May 14, 2010 02:56:12 PM
Hey all... so the ideas for mine were my ideas but i pretty much let the artists do it their way. My boyfriend is a tattoo artist at a pretty well known studio here in Leeds, UK.. so i have a very free approach to letting artists design my ideas as i know this will produce the best results.

First off is my Flamingo half sleeve, this was an idea i had had for a long long time, i initially wanted a very plastic looking lawn flamingo but after speaking with the artist and seeing his design i fell in love with it! It's done in a mostly old school style but uses more ink colours than traditional old school. it was tattooed by Joel 'Suga' Brennan who is working at Ink Assasins in Erie, PA.. he was guesting at Black Crown in Leeds here in the UK, where my boyfriend works. Anyway enough waffling..

If you are in Erie go get booked in with Suga, he is freekin' awesome.. such a fun guy to talk to and a really quick and gentle tattooist.

Next up is my super old school style tattoo, done in the traditional red, green, yellow and black ink with a very old school design to it, like the flamingo this was my idea but i left it up to the artist to execute it how he wanted.. i just knew i wanted proper old school style. I love showing people this tattoo because they always smile and say 'that's cool' but their eyes always show they are dying to know who Bonny and Read are, so i might leave you guessing for the time being :-P i'm mean! (or you could google them! prizes for the winner) This tattoo was done by Fil Wood at Black Crown Tattoo in Leeds, UK

Any UK people on here.. if you ever get chance to check out Black Crown in Leeds i HIGHLY recomend you do, some amazing talent there!
