71  Re: death to my kitty!!! in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions by Souldier on: April 29, 2005 06:43:38 AM
My cat sort of does that. She has a toy box... well a toy tent where I keep all of her toys. And when I leave the house I return to see her food and water dishes full of her toys pilled over each other. She also likes to drag clothing around and lay on it while I'm gone. She's lucky she is cute.

Sorry.. just had to post some pictures. She is going to be 2 years old in August.

A scary before picture...

(the day I got my dreads... real spongy looking...)

(Same month I got my dreads)

(around 2 months old)

(around 4 months)

My dreads are now 9 months old so they are longer and tighter... unfortunately I have no pictures because my digital camera needs some batteries. Whenever I take a new pic I'll be sure to post! 

PS: Everyone has cool hair... so colorful!!! I love it all!

Oops I forgot to mention the dying part... haha. Well this is my natural color... it gets super light in the summer because I am always outside. I was recently thinking of bleaching my dreadies though... Its a thought... I haven't completely decided yet. Maybe I'll bleach a few of them to see how it turns out.

73  A home-made guitar strap cover for my little brother. in Completed Projects by Souldier on: December 16, 2004 11:35:37 AM
Haha I'm rhyming. Weird. Anyway... My little bro wanted a custom guitar strap and little does he know... He's getting one for xmas. This took me a while since I never made anything like it. I searched this site for a tutorial, but the one I knew of wasn't working anymore (the pictures that is). So I came up with my own idea. Its pretty much just a long rectangle of fabric with a zipper from top to bottom. I think the measuring took the longest since it has to fit snuggly over his old strap without being bulky, uneven, or uncomfortable. The strap itself is made of brown curdoroy leftovers I had which I then lined with interfacing, the stars are made of canvas and I used the zigzag stich on my sewing machine to make their outline look embroidered. Enough rambling. Here are the pictures.

I might make him a few more.

74  Kitty eared zip-up hoodie! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Souldier on: August 12, 2004 01:59:35 PM
I fell in love with this zip-up hoodie at Emily Strange.


I wanted it super bad! But I didn't want to pay the 73.21$ (Canadian) and the shipping and handling for it. So I went out to Zellers and bought a plain black zip-up hoodie for 19.99$ and altered it to fit. With some scraps and a bit of iron on interfacing I made the ears (and I had all this stuff lying around the house so that didn't cost me nothing). Then I cut two slits in the hoodie where I wanted the ears to be and sewed those babies on! I think it closely resembles the Emily Strange one and it cost me wayyyy less!

75  Re: My element shirt ... in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Souldier on: August 10, 2004 03:59:29 PM
If you want to make one like the ones they sell in stores. The classic one:

Its pretty easy. Just make a stencil of a square, paint it red, let it dry.
Then make the actuall symbol stencil and paint it white over the red square. If you see that its still kind of reddish.. keep layering the white over top till its white.  I did it for my bro and myself, you can't even tell the difference between the actual element shirt (39.99$) and the "stenciled" element shirt (5$).

Do you skateboard by the way? Just curious. Wanted to know if there where any fellow female skateboarding craftsters on here.

76  Duct tape dress forms (with tutorial) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Souldier on: August 10, 2004 09:28:59 AM
Thanks to the person who posted on how to make your own dress form. I came up with this:

First I made the duct tape dress form of me and then stuffed it:

Then I made a stand out of 3 shelf mounts and an adjustable shower curtain rod (that makes the dress form adjustable to your height) and I painted it with automotive puple and blue paint:

Added some hemp and beads (I wrapped the hemp around and hot glued it to add sterdiness to the whole thing)

And now I'm covering it with material, not quite done yet, but you get the idea:

I still need to add my purple painted doorknob to the neck. But its almost done. Couldnt wait to post it!  Cheesy

77  Re: Fuzzy, shiny purse shaped like a vulva in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Souldier on: August 06, 2004 02:53:19 PM
I just had to make one of these... So I did! It turned out to be a gift for my friend on her birthday. She loves it! She shows it to everyone and now I have a list of people who want me to make one for them as well. Thanks alot for the inspiration!

The picture is really blurry because my camera sucks! Sorry guys! I added a few things to mine. Like the furry green stuff I took from this Grinch gift bag I had and a diamond-like bead that dangles from the zipper.

78  Re: stretched ears.. earrings?? in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by Souldier on: August 03, 2004 10:01:10 AM
Mine are also at a 0... I have those surgical steel tunnels with the twist on end. I really like them. I've had them for over 2 years now. Cost me 30$ for the pair, but it would be nice to have some sort of alternative... something to mix things up a little, but I'm not sure that clay would hold up very well.

I got an anonymous tip from a fellow skateboarder while I was at an indoor park not too long ago. He also had 0g lobe stretchings in his ear. He told me that he uses bearing spacers as tunnels. So if anyone has friends who skateboards and buys a new set of bearings or maybe have some old ones lying around... ask him/her for the bearing spacers (most people don't use them anyway). Sometimes they come in plastic and other times they're metal. With my old bearings the spacers where bright green, but I threw them out not even thinking about using them as tunnels. Damn!  Undecided But before even contemplating on putting those in your ears, clean them out. Bearings tend to get greasy and dirty, so soak them in rubbing alcohol for a bit. Also, a set of bearings has 4 spacers. I wonder if it would be possible to paint them without having the paint irritate your ear... hmm... maybe if it had some sort of clear coating on it... who knows.

Here's a picture to clear things up a little:

79  I had this boring ugly fish tank and... in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Souldier on: July 05, 2004 03:14:06 PM
I decided to take some hemp and an old bamboo beach matt thingy and glue it to the frame. Here are the before and after pictures. It turned out quite well and it hides all the wires! YAY!
