21  79 cent skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by acidalbatross on: July 18, 2006 07:35:35 AM
at my wonderful local thriftstore i found 2 pillowcases and they told me to make a skirt out of them, so i did

and a better picture of the fabric-

comments etc. welcome
(only nothing too bad 'cause as we speak i'm wearing the skirt in public  Smiley )

(edited to fix strange use of a comma)

here it is-

(i look like HELL in this picture)

thank you, i wore it the other day, and finally decided i liked it (the ribbon helped)- here's a picture -

not an exceptional picture (oh well)

it's uber-comfy, and it'll be really good for the fall when i can wear a wool cardigan without dying

oh and here's monty-

he's very disappointed that i'm taking pictures of myself instead of feeding him Smiley

24  FRIDA!! in her own words in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by acidalbatross on: July 03, 2006 06:21:43 PM
this was an art project from last year- we had to make some kind of picture using words-
this was at the height of my obsession with Frida Kahlo (who will always be one of my heroes)-
the words are all from her diary-

and here's some close-ups- the words aren't especially legible, but they're there-

all the kids in my class were very disturbed by her mustache  Grin

25  ATTACK of the PLAID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by acidalbatross on: July 02, 2006 10:08:26 PM
so using Lamby's tutorial I made this-

(awful picture- but currently the only one I have)
I'm semi happy with it- but it really seems way too............. plaid
I love plaid, but I really feel like i need to add something to the dress to break up the plaidness
it may be just me but i feel like it would go well with a cowboy hat and boots, but unfortunately that is definitely NOT my style
other than that its uber comfortable and cool-- i'm more than happy to wear it at home-

heres a picture of it with a cardigan- i like it with the cardigan- but thats really not practical in the middle of summer-

(yup- myspace angles at work)

 any suggestions on changes are very very welcome

thanks for looking Grin

thanks for all the good comments!

27  my father is an Oompa Loompa in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by acidalbatross on: June 27, 2006 05:14:02 AM
I didn't want to do laundry last night, so i made this skirt out of fabric i had laying about, and as soon as i finished it, i realized i had finally found an outfit to wear with the bright orange tights i had bought for 50 cents  Grin
here it is-

a bit blurry but it gets the idea across- the tights are actually a little brighter, but the lighting was terrible

and heres a clearer picture-

(the camera took the picture a little early)

the skirt is a fairly simple 4 panel skirt- i find the 4 panels are the most flattering for my ummm... wide hips

thanks for looking, and any comments etc are welcome

oh- and i just realized the shirt is a recon- wrong thread i know, but i don't feel like posting it separately

28  finished! my tiara- now with a sad attempt at a tutorial in Knitting: Completed Projects by acidalbatross on: June 22, 2006 08:56:01 PM
i had to clean my room this weekend, so i decided to make a tiara for the occasion- and i am now in love with felting, so i decided to knit and felt myself a tiara- i made up the pattern for it as i went along-

i'm only half way through embroidering it, and eventually i'm going to put some red beads on it-

here i am wearing it (with my greasy hair)

i think i'll add another picture of it once i'm finished

yup thats it- i think i'm going to make more with a slightly different pattern (my little cousin already wants one)-
ideas of changes, or comments are definitely welcome

29  my amazing fedora in Knitting: Completed Projects by acidalbatross on: June 20, 2006 02:41:28 PM
so far my only accomplishment this summer has been my fedora-
i got the pattern from Folk Hats by Vicki Square- i hand felted it (it took about 2 hours) because i was too much of a wimp to try to machine felt it-

unfortunately the brim doesn't stay up exceptionally well- does any one know how to deal with this?

here it is with a ribbon around the brim- i think i will replace it with something more fun-

over all i'm happy with it- but i don't think i'll wear it much- i kinda just wanted to be able to say that i made my own fedora Grin

30  a bunch of oddly colored people - and a disgusting number of pictures in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by acidalbatross on: May 25, 2006 09:15:26 PM
here are most of my oil paintings, i have issues with color, and i refuse to buy paints other than the primary colors (and black and white)
so these are the result-

first, here is bob marley, i painted him 2 summers ago-

 heres a random old man- for some reason, pictures of old angry men make me happy

j. robert oppenheimer

sorry its so blurry

here are two that i don't like very much- but whatever- i didn't treat the paper (or in the second case, cardboard) well so it kinda made thngs more difficult

i did this one last year, its a  mixture between a painting of bernadine dohrn, a victim of the french revolution, and an illumination of Hildegarde of Bingen

so thats all, any comments or whatever are uber welcome- and i've decided to spend the summer getting better at painting, so any ideas for improvement are definitely good-
