1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Skittles Earrings, in cherry and grape! on: November 09, 2008 09:37:39 PM
I made this a few years ago in high school out of Sculpey Smiley They're slightly larger than dimes, so I want to try to cast smaller and more 3D ones out of resin. (once I learn how to work with resin hehe.)

Unfortunately I lost one of the "cherry" ones a few weeks ago, so it's definitely time to make some more lol.

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Lolita Dresses! (and 1 skirt) on: November 09, 2008 01:15:05 AM
Hello, long time lurker finally making a post hehe.

Here are some of the lolita dresses I've made in the past year. Some of you may know the style as "Gothic Lolita", but Gothic is just one of the many lolita styles that are out there! My style is primarily Classic lolita, which is based on a more mature or "elegant" look, as opposed to the sugary sweetness of Sweet or the morbid motifs of Gothic. Sometimes they all just crossover to form a big hybrid style lol. Most of these patterns I drafted up myself, which I'm still learning heh.

August 06: (the picture is from Sept.07 tho) The fabric is a sheet music print with musical note and heart appliqu. This was my first "successful" lolita piece; everything I made in the two years prior to this came out horribly wrong. XD

EDIT #1: this is the tutorial I used to make the base skirt, the rest I just figured out as I went along. Once I'm home for fall break, I'll try to track down my eyelet puncher so I can write up a proper tutorial Smiley

EDIT #2: The piano key socks are sold here Smiley

Here's what the back looks like:

October 07: I made this one using a modified Vogue Vintage pattern! The skirt in the pattern was actually TOO full haha.

January 08: I made this for a lolita friend's birthday/New Year's party. A bunch of us got together and got dressed up; we stuffed our faces with little snacks & tea and baked a cake. XD This picture made it into the reader snaps for the English edition of the Gothic & Lolita Bible. Smiley

July 08: I made this one for the annual lolita tea party at Otakon 2008. (an anime/japanese culture con in Baltimore) If you look closely at the pearl chain, it has little tea related charms on it. Unfortunately the chain broke and never made it out the house. :<

August 08: This one was for a lolita meetup in NYC. My friend and I are standing in the offices of the New York Times, they interviewed our group of almost 25 girls for their article on lolita! Unfortunately, we didn't make it in but lots of my friends did! (Here's the web version, the text is essentially the same as the print version but some of the pictures are different.) For the bodice, I used the blouse pattern that came with the English G&L Bible Vol.2. I'm most proud of this one, construction wise. <3
