1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Fan Shirt Recon on: May 13, 2011 06:27:41 AM
My friend is a musician and I bought one of his t-shirts awhile ago. ( You can check out his music here: http://www.last.fm/music/Dizzy+the+punk+rapper ) I'm not sure if you can see, but at the top it says "Get Dizzy" in scrabble letters.

It was just an oversized mens t-shirt so of course I had to jazz it up a bit.

He's also in a rap group ( http://www.facebook.com/pages/Jupiter-Express/115565965169866 ), and I got invited to wear the shirt in their music video but I had to work. :/ Stupid job. Hopefully next time though.

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Unicorn Pencil Skirt and a Pretty Headache on: May 13, 2011 05:26:24 AM
I saw this unicorn fabric in the store over six months ago and bought it, with no clue towards what I was going to do with it. I'd  never made a pencil skirt before so I decided to give it a try. I'm super in love with it!!

This is another skirt I made. I was making up the pattern as I went a long, and it was such a headache to make. I think I may have come up with an easier way to do it though. So I may redo in a different color scheme. Also, please ignore the blah expression on my face. My camera was annoying me.

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Graffiti Tag Necklace on: February 03, 2009 01:59:54 PM
I made this graffiti necklace last night and I absolutely adore it!
 Someone said that they couldn't read it and someone else said they could. So now I don't know if it's hard to read or not. Anywho, it spells my name (Aaliya).

4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Would using Old Navy items be bad business? on: December 25, 2008 02:57:33 PM
I have some ideas for shirt designs that I want to sell. I originally was planning on making all the shirts from scratch but that proved time consuming and because of that I would have to raise the price of the shirts I sold. I've also had problems with sizing issues because I'm my own mannequin. I can make stuff that fits me awesomely but have a hard time changing the pattern to fit others, let alone people I've never met. I've always liked the way Old Navy shirts feel and look. And if I wait for sales I can stock up and get solid colored t-shirts and long sleeved shirts for pretty cheap. Would this be alright for me to do? I notice that a lot of people use American Apparel clothing for items they plan to sell, but this looks like a very expensive option. Also, would it be illegal for me to use a seam ripper to remove the old navy tag and replace it with my own after the shirt is altered?

5  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Selling to different shapes and sizes? on: December 08, 2007 07:18:37 PM
So I'm taking the etsy plunge!  Grin Very soon I will be selling handmade clothes and accessories online. I would really like for my clothes to fit people of all different shapes and sizes. I am having a few problems though. Like how would I go about making armwarmers and legwamers of different sizes? Also, for the clothes I was going to mimic the sizes of a major chain like Hot Topic. Does this sound like a good plan or are their size labels misleading. For example, do they sell clothes in a medium that you would actually consider a small?

How does this sound?

Women sizes
Bust- 34
Waist- 27
Hips- 37

Bust- 36
Waist- 29

Bust- 37
Waist- 30
Hips- 40

6  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / What's so great about etsy? on: October 18, 2006 01:49:45 PM
So I'm about to take the plunge into starting my own clothing business. Selling handmade tops and skirts and such. Already know that I don't want to deal with Ebay, so I'm trying to decide whether I want to open my own webpage, or open an etsy site. Everyone here at craftster seems to be head over heels with etsy. And I want to know why. What's so great about it?
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pac Man Dress w/Pics on: May 27, 2006 08:45:20 AM
Years ago I had this oversized Pac man jersey that I vowed to eventually turn into a dress.

And I finally did! Yayness! What do you think?

Sorry about the dirty mirror.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Making Permenant Marker more...permenant? on: May 24, 2006 09:29:38 AM
Howdy folks. I've always shied away from silkcreening and whenever I try to do the whole iron on transfer thing, they get screwed up. So I thought about doing some clothing designs with sharpies. Especially the cute multicolered key chain ones the have out now. But I heard that after some washings the sharpies designs begin to fade. Is there any kind of sealer I can use to prevent this?

Thanks in advance!
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Rockstar Adventure Fashionistas w/pictures. on: May 24, 2006 08:49:28 AM
This is the post of a soon to be reformed lurker. My friend Rachel is always saying "That shirt/skirt/random thingiemabob you made is soooo cool! Why don't you post on that crafty site your always raving about?" Yes, raving. I am constantly raving about you lovely ladies(and gentleman) and all the awesome things you make. Honestly, I never thought anything I've made was that great but the artist is always their own worst critic I guess. So anywho, I am finally vowing to step out of the lurker shadow and present PICTURES. The following pics are from me and Rachels "ROCKSTAR ADVENTURE" last fall. We were at the Smithsonians Sculpture Garden. I'm surprised we didn't get kicked out.

So anywho we both wore homemade clothes for the occasion. Rachel rocked her neon orange trenchcoat that she made from an outdoor furniture cover (she's so cool!!!), and I wore the skirt/shirt/shrug set I made out of some pink stretchy material, this starry night pajama fabric, and a turqouise turtleneck that I never wore because it had a mysterious stain on it. Any way, without further ado, Aaliya and Rachels Rockstar Adventure!


If David Bowie can have an alter ego as cool as Ziggy Stardust, why can't the girls of N.E.N. (Not Exactly Normal)?

Introducing the rockstar alter egos of N.E.N's lead singer and guitarist ...

 Slick Detective Hip Rock Hero (((Rachel made that 80's trenchcoat!))) and...

Pink Lightning, the Sugar Punk Faerie from the Planet Oz. (((I made this whole outfit (from scratch!) except for the jeans and the shoes. I should've have worn my wings and tiara for extra -incharacterness)))


Slick D planned to take a break from her investigating work today. This lasted until about noon when her turqoise fluffy topped detective pen went missing.

DUN, Dun, dun...
The detective wondered how she would crack this case.

Suddenly a bright light blinded the detective,

 a hyper little pixie appeared,

 Antwon  was like... WTF?!?!,

And the faerie was like...I'll help you find your pen.

 And so they became a duo.

But Slick D was suspicious of Pink Lightning. She considered the faerie a suspect of the crime. Seeing as pixies are known to be mischievious, the pen matched the pixies' outfit, and also because anyone who smiles and laughs that much HAS to be up to something.

So they journeyed to lands far and wide,

and searched for the precious pen.
<<Eek! Bra Strap!!! >_<>>

They interviewed...

the female Mister Burns   who muttered "Excelllent" in response to each question,

they interviewed this guy, who... seemed a little too excited, if you get my drift,

and they interviewed an alien,

who, when questioned, tried to eat Slick D's arm.
*insert scream*

With a whole day gone. and no new leads, Slick D decided to continue her search another day.

 But she new, no matter how many days passed, she'd have to keep her eye on that darned pixie.


Whew! That's alot of pictures. That aren't particularly craft related. If I'm breaking some kind of picture limit rule, let me know and I'll tone it down.
10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Gifts for boys that are friends/Friend Appreciation Day on: October 22, 2005 07:14:40 AM
My plan is to dub November 15th as official "Friend Appreciation Day". I have this group of friends at school that have always been there for me. I wanna bake some cupcakes with their names on it, and then I want to have some cute gifts to give out. For the girls I was thinking https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=51223.0. Cute and simple, but I know they'll love it. For my male friends ( which I have many of) I can't think of something comparatively simple, yet impressive. Preferably I want it to be something they can wear. HELP?!?

If it helps, we are all seniors (except for one) ages 16-18. And all of us are in the marching band. And all of them are into the hip hop thing.
