Just minutes after I sent off my package I found this hilarious candy:

22  Great white in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Glamis on: February 17, 2014 12:46:10 AM
I made a "jaws" inspired purse.
It is made from faux leather and a bright red zipper.
It has an inner pocket and an adjustable strap.
I really suck at photography, Sorry!
Pretty much speaks for itself, doesnt it?

I made this mini poppet as a thank you for a swap angel.

His shirt is freezer paper stenciled

His hair is embroidered. The filling came out a little bit. Sigh

His eyebrows are embroidered too. And his eyes are acrylic-painted

He has a backside too

His shoes are made from beige faux leather. I painted the brown parts.

Here he is in a typically pose

Another one. A failure attempt on the spock hand sign. He only has 4 fingers. It is waaaaaaaay easier that way.

I know I totally forgot to make socks.

Be prepared to be jealous ;-)
I received a preciously beautiful necklace from phoenixfiredesigns
She hand casted and painted the skeleton and the necklace is made from glass pearl and jade. I really like that it is quite heavy so it doesnt "dangle" that much and it is the perfect lenght.
Thank you phoenixfiredesigns. Now I have to get changed into an outfit that matches the necklace so that I can wear it :-D

25  The howling in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Glamis on: October 20, 2013 02:18:32 AM

So I wanted a wolf shirt.
The ones to acquire by purchase where either ugly or not my (plus) size.
So I bought a blank shirt, found an image on google (http://mybluegardenia.files.wordpress.com/2010/01/wolfmoon1.jpg), copied it on freezer paper and made my own.
After the white layer I did some dabs in a light yellowish-grey and a darker yellowish-grey color to give the moon some depth.
Finally did some dark little spots with a brush.
I love it.

26  Re: The Walking Dead Swap ~Calling all Walkers~ ROUND 2 GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by Glamis on: September 10, 2013 03:26:25 AM
I received an awesome belated angel package from fatewineroses.
But it was my fault because I am a dumbass and had a typo in my address and she was kind enough to resent it!

Here is what I got:

two superpretty embroidered sugar skull and northern star patches/pin cushions (I am not sure)

two superneat embroidered kitchen towels

Michonne (one of my favourite still alive characters)

and Dales RV. I think it is more present in the comic books, plus Dale was one of my favourite characters

and the supercoolest zombie head aquarium! I have no idea how she made it but the front looks like  actual glas panes (very hard to photograph)

Thank you so much fatewineroses. Made my day (had an rather displeasing dentist appointment today) and I love it all!

27  Re: Mini 13 Days of Halloween Gallery in The Swap Gallery by Glamis on: September 05, 2013 03:58:24 AM
On Day 1 I received:

Three ghouls to keep me company. You cant see it in the picture but they have red (bead) eyeballs.
They now guard m garden fence!

plus: sticky eyeballs (glow in the dark!) that run down windows. The cat is very fascinated

On Day 2 (zombie day) I received:

a handprint sticker (goes to my front door) and zombie paper doll chains!

plus a mystery walking dead figure. Who might it be?


a corporate zombie. Nice  Grin (in my opinion he has a rather "healthy" skin tone for a zombie  Grin)

On Day 3 I received:

delicate beaded bat earrings

the awesomeness continues:
On Day 4 I received:

I received two felt patches and some skulls beads for my collection. The skull patch is going to go on my jacket (as a pin)

On Day 5 I received:

"the glass Lizzie Borden drank from just before her death in 1927" Very hard to photograph but you hopefully get the impression that there is an etched hand print on it..

plus caution tape. I may put it on the toilet door...

On Day 6 I received: (I realised I have to use more adverbs to properly appreciate calixitas work)

Books <3
two supertiny ones: one with beautiful pictures of Mount Auburn Cemetery, one with tiny horror film poster (beginning and ending with one of "night of the living dead"   Grin) and a very inspiring "Book of skull"s with pictures of artwork that involve skulls.

I love that font and it is free!

plus a neat magnetic bookmark

On Day 7 I received:

Seven more tiny books:

One with spooky images (it also has googly eyes on the cover)

One with poetry, containing "Tourist Season" by David R. Gluck (cracked me up) and "untitled" by Michael Nguyen (creepy )

One with pictures of "Northhampton State Hospital" and "Danvers State Hospital" (so cool)

One Skizzenbuch (sketchbook in German) with blank pages

One Zeitschrift (magazine in German) with also blank, lined pages

One leather bound with blank pages

and one labeled "My Dolls" with creepy doll face pictures

plus a mini woodland  library,lined with horror movie posters and a library gargoyle to watch them all

I am quite overwhelmed and cant even imagine how much work went into all that tiny books and the bookshelf
love them all!

On Day 8 I received:

An altered "model" (I dont know the name for it) house plus this story that goes with it (Read it!!):
A tiny zombie house:
A minor earthquake hit a small new england town and caused an explosion in an unused mine. A black cloud of dust settled in a 30 mile area surrounding the old mine. It was mostly woods and 1 building, The Wooden Nickel Inn. All the animals quickly died and the humans at the Inn soon fell gravely ill themselves. Two elderly tourists were there the first to die but doctors were baffled as to treatment. Then police received a 911 call that the dead tourists were attacking the other inhabitants. No one has come out of the house since....

look at that tiny bloody axe, and the bloody handprint in the window!

isntt it supercool !?!

On Day 9 I received:

A necklace with three different shrink plastic pendants:
Momento mori, Black caviar for zombies and The black broken heart of an ex-lover   Grin Grin Grin Grin
Had a good laugh before I had to go to the dentist, thanks!

(sorry for the bad pic, it was the best out of 20..)

On Day 10 I received:

A felt oogie boogie stuffed with bugs. He is awesome and will join my collection of handcrafted pin cushions.

you can even take the bugs out. Look how tiny they are  Shocked (compared to my giant finger) and each one is different

calixita, you are such a delicate crafter

On Day 11 I received:

A beaded werewolf artwork. Calixita originally wanted to turn it into a cuff bracelet but thought Id find the colors too drab, thoshe briefly considered giving him a rainbow background  Smiley I think all ideas are good. I think it is beautiful anyways..

On Day 12 I received:

A bloody bathtub pin cushion with bone, hand and eyeball pin. It was Calixitas first time working with poly clay. Very creative!

On the last Cry Cry Cry Cry day I received:

Four awesome beaded bracelets. I love bracelets. The eye one is sooooooooooooo cool and the other have really pretty color combos

Action shot

I am so sad it is all over now. Calixita you have been an incredible partner. Everything I received is so thoughtful and well made. I hope to swap with you some time in the future again. Thank you.  Smiley
P.S. Due to your awesome bead work I got hooked up on beading again. And I blame you that I ordered 50 worth of what the internet says are the best beads (miyuki) and a loom  Wink

28  Reef in Crochet: Completed Projects by Glamis on: July 27, 2013 10:17:09 AM

So I made this for a friend who is into marine biology for his birthday.
I got all the inspiration from google and pinterest
I learned how to crochet "ribs" and corkscrews
Most of the other specimen are just somehow crocheted in rounds with more or less increases
The red coral is armed with a wire that I crocheted around
I tried to use rather "tamed" colors, he is not too much into vivid ones (at least that is my guess)
Lets keep fingers crossed he likes it  Grin

Since Halloween isnt that popular in Germany yet, Ill probably wont dress up. But I always dress up for German carnival. This year I made a brain slug...

30  Wednesday Addams inspired mermaid poppet in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Glamis on: June 15, 2013 11:55:56 PM
So in the last poppet swap my partner had a lot of interests and I picked two to combine:
Wednesday Addams and mermaids.
I went with the mermaid Silhouette and and gave it a Wednesdayish color scheme and her pigtails of course.

starfish boobies!

here is a better look at her scales. I painted the back of fabric scraps with fabric glue and then cut and sewed on every scale individually. So worth the patience I think ;-) They gradient in size too.

and since she i a bad ass shes got a tattoo

handpainted eyes

and her pet dead fishy

Do you think she is weired?
