31  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Monster hoodie! (image pudgy) on: April 16, 2006 08:32:47 PM
My roommate and I came up with ideas for monster-type hoodies, going off of the typical "Dino" hoodie. So we stopped over at ragstock and got some $6 hoodies, then went to michael's for some cheapo felt.
Here is what I made.

The front.

I love this thing, but wearing it in public is a little strange.

Here is Martenmonster! He exists because I was sad last night. I wanted something to hug that would look sympathetic and vaguely worried. I think it worked! Cheesy

He's a lil messed up... I sewed the horns on wrong... and had to hot glue on the eyes... and the pupils/irises are sharpie... coz I don't have many supplies for this kind of thing. But I love him anyway.

Okay. *deep breath* here goes my first real post...

I'm making a "care package" for my long distance boyfriend. It's kind of sad, we've been long distance for a year and a half and I've only made him two things previous to now ( a journal and a scarf)... and he's moving back up here in a month. Geh. Well, anyway, I've made a few things for the package- some fake antidepressants, because he gets depressed but doesn't want to take real ones, so I made him some sculpey ones with cute lovey things written on them, and a prescription bottle with a new label that says "read one pill as needed for depression:

and four "songpages" because I'm terrible at writing love letters, so I made these scrapbooky- type things wherein I took the lyrics of cute songs about long distance relationships and staying strong and whatever and put together little pages that match the song...

The first one is the song "Goodnight Starlight" by Juliana Theory.

The second is "Such Great Heights" by The Postal Service. The little people are made out of sculpey, and are made like puzzle pieces because of the line "I have to speculate that God himself Did make us into corresponding shapes like Puzzle pieces from the clay"... and they're on top of a mountain because of the chorus.

Third is "The Best of Me" by the Starting Line.

And fourth is "If All Else Fails" by Matchbook Romance. This one's my favorite. I LOVE how the little paper doll-girl came out.

Well anyway, my question is this: I need to send this package soon, or he'll already be up here. What else could I make that wouldn't take long? the package just seems too empty! I'm gonna write a real letter tomorrow and stick it in there, too, but I'm at a loss for other things.
Any input would be greatly appreciated... oh, and comments/critiques on what's already here would be welcome, too!
