1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / AMC Gremlin- Tent Kit? on: October 08, 2007 04:45:49 PM
I'm purchasing a '74 amc gremlin to be my first art car. I've heard about tent kits that turn the back of your amc into a camper-type sleeping quarters and thought that would be a pretty cool addition. I can't find any online to customize, so I was wondering if any one had one or has seen one in person and possibly had any tips on how I could make my own.

Here's a photo I found online. It's actually a Hornet pictured here, but from what I've heard it's the same tent.

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / curly skirt thingies? what are they called? how do you make them? on: November 29, 2006 10:42:08 AM
I have no idea what the word for these things are, so i can't find a picture. I've been googling "skirt", "dress", "curly", "twirls", "spiral", etc in every combo i can think of to no avail.

What I'm thinking of is strips of fabric that hang down in a skirt and instead of hanging flat, they curl. I've noticed the strips have edges finished with some sort of over the edge stitch. I don't know if this effects the curling at all.

This skirt style was somewhat popular for last year's prom season, but I can't find ANY in this year's catalogues.

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Tarot-along! on: November 06, 2006 11:18:37 AM
I've been wanting to make my own tarot deck for awhile now, but I realize this is a HUGE undertaking. If I don't have support, I'd never finish. So I thought: Craftalong.

I don't think Id want to rush through the whole deck, so perhaps one card every month? or every 2 weeks? maybe start with the major arcana and see how everything works out after that?

Is anyone interested? any thoughts?


I'm going to set up a very general guideline. If you don't want to follow them, more power to you. These are mostly for myself and anyone needing a push of guidance.

Starting Sunday, November 19th we will be working on 0-The Fool and 1-The Magician until Saturday, December 2

Also, feel free to discuss anything tarot related. Personal meanings, favorite decks, history, etc. I know that I, as a fairly new reader, would love to hear any and all of it.

Tarot links that I find helpful/interesting:

4  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Valley of the dolls...and the dog (*pic heavy*) on: November 06, 2006 10:18:55 AM
This is my sister's costume. I made the entire thing from scratch (excluding the tights and shoes). It's the most complete outfit i've ever made, so im pretty proud. You can't see all the pieces because she was wearing a hoodie.

This was the first year she went trick or treating with her friends instead of us, so my mom and i were sitting around her house feeling left out. We got the woderful idea to dress up the only baby we have left. So we rooted through the old costume box and put together...

my dog's costume, which i made the skirt for my sister's costume last year. surprisingly, she didn't hate us. She actually loved getting all the attention from the people who came to our door.

5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Glows under a blacklight? help? on: August 11, 2006 01:22:35 AM
I'm not sure where this should go so here i am!

I need to make costumes that glow under a blacklight. They will be all black body suits, with painted/sewn/etc.. decorations that glow. Think: glowing halloween skeleton. How can I apply the design? These will be used one time, so don't need to be especially durable, and need to be fairly cheap. Brighter colors are a plus. With a regular tempera paint work? Is there something that will work better? I'm at a loss here.
