2  Re: Little Visitor Swap Round 9 Winter Vacation Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Shelichan on: November 08, 2008 11:44:59 AM

1 - Theres Pixikins all ready to go!
2 - Look even her box is perfect! Its a fudge company box, and I even decorated it. Smiley

1 - Donovan arrived and he was HUNGRY! So we ate some crepes from my schools cafeteria (not normally served and abnormally good).
2 - Today (11/15) he came with me to my Fashion Art & Design class - and wanted to pose with the drawings my professor did!
3 - After class, I hopped on a train and headed to NJ to do a photoshoot! Of course Donovan came with me (little perv... jumped at the opportunity to see me half naked and tied up!)

1 - Donovan was jealous of the spotlight, so Serge (my photographer - who actually shot the image in my user icon) took some pictures just of him! And I took one of Serge shooting him!
2 - On the train ride back to NYC! Us models travel in packs (I think it went to his head...)
3 - Donovan was wiped from his time in front of the camera, so he crawled into my bag till we got home. Smiley

johnnyxlondon - woah. *drool*

ANYWAY... Im... kinda eccentric. Well when I try, most days I throw on a hoodie and jeans and call it done. But with hair like mine... I dont really need to dress too insane to look insane.

Wow I never realized how much I lack in photos of me on a normal day... I only have photoshoot images... which are true to my style, but generally inappropriate to be posting on this board.

Yay I sent in my application! Im excited about this swap! Not too epic with paper crafts... though Ive honestly havent really tried... but I AM taking a book binding class now... so Ill be able to actually make my scrapbook from complete scratch. Cheesy

This is Pixikins - and shes a magical cotton candy bear. Teehee. Shes never traveled anywhere before! We both live smack dab in the middle of New York City, but for winter vacation well be heading home to the middle of nowhere New Jersey - so my partner can choose if they want pics from NYC, my home (which is very... small and bland...), or a mix of both. Heh.

Pardon the bad lighting. Bad rain storm going on outside (hey at home about 45 mins from here theres 4-8" of snow). And the lovely view from my window. Fun note... see that low rooftop right out my window? Not the tall buildings, the rooftop almost level with me... Tyra Banks did a photoshoot right there a month or so ago.

5  Re: Costume ideas needed ASAP! PIC HVY in Halloween Costumes by Shelichan on: October 26, 2008 08:49:41 PM
Wow Smiley I saw your blue eyebrows and immediately thought George from Paradise Kiss... but that's of course completely obscure and so I guess not a costume. My second thought, though, was Rainbow Brite! It may be a bit shorter than you wanted, but you have the blues and then crazy colors to pull it off. Dragonflies have crazy colors sometimes, too... or a phoenix..?

Bwahahahahah Georrrrrgeeeeee. Actually Im a Miwako cosplayer. I used to have longer baby pink hair... and Im a fashion design student... Im about as real life Miwako as youll ever find.

Accidentally had the nosering down for that pic... but its not completely out of character. Haha.

6  Costume ideas needed ASAP! PIC HVY in Halloween Costumes by Shelichan on: October 26, 2008 07:53:21 PM
Oh man... so I actually make a lot of costumes.... but Im at school and I have none of them here. I want to make one, but Im running low on ideas... help?

My budget is no more than MAYBE $20 absolutely tops - Im broke. But I do have a fairly large wardrobe and accessories to use if needed... I want to sew it - seeing as I am at fashion design school... but I want a cute fun idea... not just a crazy outfit I designed out of teh blue. I need it to be flattering... Im only 5'1" and I wear about a size 12. So none of those super short skanky things cause uhhhh nobody wants to see me in that.

These are the only fabrics that I have tow ork with... and varying quantities of each. Most are knits except the top two blues.

Closeup of the texture of the fuzzy ones...

And very importantly - I want it to go with  my hair!!!! Which is currently... this...

Help? I super appreciate it!

7  My first books! in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Shelichan on: September 13, 2008 04:56:04 PM
So Im in a book binding class here at FIT as an elective! Weve made 4 books so far. Two with 2 types of basic pamphlet stitching, and these two which I think are japanese stab stitch binding... one is a regular one, and one is tortoise stitch. I dont have pics of the first two, but theyre very plain and basic, with green canson paper as a cover and printer paper as the insides.

Oh but theres three! Cause I figured if Im making so many books, I should make them for people! So the blue one is for my mom, brown alligator one for my dad, and then my sister was left out - so I made her the nicest of all. The music one.  The blue and brown one just have printer paper insides, but my sisters has the music note paper thats on the front part I added so she can title her book. Oh and theres the same type deal on the inside that says "Book made for Melissa, Love Mandy, 2008" Smiley

Not too shabby for first trys I think! What do you think?

love the cotton candy colors! Is your natural color dark? if so how do you keep your hair from breaking with the bleach? my hair just goes blah when i bleach the color out.

This is my natural brown... its about an equal match to synth/HH color #8 - if that means anything to you.

Smiley Well I bleach usually myself using 40 vol bleach kits from Sallys... which is strong, but not nearly as strong as salon bleach. I put it right on my hair and scalp - which is bad... but oh well. If it was salon quality 40 vol - I would have some SERIOUSLY BAD burns from putting it on my scalp. At first it took about 3 bleachings (about a week apart with serious conditioning inbetween) to go from my natural undyed brown to a very light platinum blonde. I also used a toner on it, which removes the yellow brassyness. Last time, my BF took me to a salon and got it professionally done. They used 20vol, used a TON of foils, and then toned it and the rest of my already platinum hair), and while the experience was much more pleasant than doing it myself... I got about the same results, only my hair was softer after at the salon than when I do it myself.

To prevent breaking... well, dont over bleach. Start with a lower vol bleach. Its better to use say 20vol and have to do it say 5 times (over an extended amount of time - at LEAST a week inbetween and serious conditioner treatments), then a 40vol and do it 2 times. Im just stupid and impatient. First time I did it - all of my hair was bleached. Im not neat about it. Just kinda throw it on, rub it in, throw a shower cap on, and wait. After that - when you just do your roots, make sure that you do NOT put the bleach on parts that are already bleached. At least try not to. If you do, well you have to wait for that bleach to lighten your roots from dark brown - and then its also sitting on the already bleached hair. Which will make it break. I usually do my roots for about an hour, then put the rest of the bleach on the rest of my hair for about 15 mins. Then, depending on how my hair feels - if its not too damaged, Ill throw a toner on there for a lil bit. If its damaged, Ill wait a week before toning.

After bleaching - your hair will get very light - but will still have that yellow tinge to it. Dont keep on bleaching it trying to get that out. It wont work and you WILL melt your hair off. That is what toner is for. Its basically a light purple - which is opposite of yellow on the color wheel - and they cancel each other out, leaving your hair white. Dont leave the toner on for too long either - or your hair will have a slight purple tint to it, and the toner needs to be mixed with developer as well... so if you leave it on too long, it can melt off your hair the same the bleach would.

Wow that was an essay... good news is, hair grows back if you mess up. Smiley Ive messed up before. I had just gotten a nice new a-line cut... a few weeks later I bleached it, and then left the bleach on the rest of my hair for too long. Everytime I brushed it afterwards, for like a week... hair would just break off. I ended up with a bob cut because the longer parts of the a-line all broke off. Also note - if you bleach your hair - try NOT to brush it when wet. Comb it. If you over bleach your hair, youll know because when its wet, it will have a weird feeling to it. It will almost feel gummy and it will stretch when pulled, and then snap.

Just be careful. Dont hurt yourself. If you doubt your abilities, its best to go to a salon.

Heres a pic of the hat under black light! Sorry none of it in normal! But its black, neon green, neon pink, and the beads are multicolored glow in the dark! Its PERFECT. It will be even better when I have my dreads in (I usually wear synthetic dreads).
