1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Jellyfish Costume! on: November 06, 2010 07:16:51 AM

in action :

attempt at showing the lights :

Hey Everyone!

I was a jellyfish for halloween, specifically a Portuguese man of war, since I am Portuguese Smiley
It was well received by everyone on the streets in Brooklyn, and it was fun to wear.

This costume was made on the Saturday before halloween in a couple of hours, I only used things I had laying around : curling ribbon, battery operated christmas lights, LOTS of plastic shopping bags, duct tape, some cardboard and a plastic dome thing I had left over from doing a window display.  

I wore an old white fringey dress (for the inner tentacles) and silver sequin leggings (to be like water). You can't see in the pictures but there are little lights in the head, which made it look awesome and creepy when going into a dark dance party!  

I hope you guys like it!!!
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / pricing on bling lunchboxes? on: June 10, 2006 08:17:59 AM
i posted these in the miscellaneous completed projects.


so i am trying to figure out a way to reproduce them - the first ones were REALLY hard to make. i had to construct the boxes out of this plastic stuff. even with revisions i expect they will be pretty heavily labor intesive and then there is all  the time for applying all those rhinestones.
they look awesome thought and i think people would buy them.

do you agree? and more importantly what woud you pay for one?

thanks!  Grin

*i have yet to open the etsy store but if i can get this project figured out well then i think i jsut might.

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / blinged out lunchboxes on: June 08, 2006 09:54:24 AM
here is yet another project i did in school - we had to come up with a new kind of lunchbox.
nothing says lunch like a rhinestone banana. Smiley

i made the cases for a sandwich, banana and a can of soda using styrene plastic - it was ALOT more difficult than i expected, especially the banana. then spray painted them with chrome spray paint. and whipped out the glue and many many many packages of small rhinestoes and set down to blingify my lunch.

it was a tedious task but all in all i think they came out pretty cool.

let me know what you think. Smiley

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / home theater - kinda... on: May 22, 2006 04:58:44 PM
this was for an assignment i did for school. it was part of an exhibition for amc (american movie classics). we had to build a shrine to a movie moment. i was fairly obsessed with the movie moulin rouge at the time so i made a stage for the can can ladies to dance on. that is a theater framing a tv/dvd player. the scene where they are dancing just loops over and over making it look like they are really on the stage.

this is my first project post on craftster so i'm sorry if this doesn't quite fit in. i intend to finish up some more crafty crafts soon.

thanks for checking it out, and let me know what you think.  Smiley
