1  Little black lolita-inspired summer dress. in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by cheera on: July 05, 2009 04:21:37 PM
I was thinking Lydia from Beetlejuice on a summer picnic.

Its pretty, light black cotton with silver pinstripes. Lace sleeves and lace on the collar, with a little tie at the collar.

We used it in a photo shoot Smiley All photo credit to Mr. Jay London!!! <3

2  U.R.A. fever, U.R.A. fever, you ain't born typical. (red dress.) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by cheera on: June 11, 2009 12:33:08 PM
I'm back from the dead.

I sewed this in about a half hour. Its unfinished and raw and amazing and comfortable.

Boring, right?

V neck, American Apparel-style lazy sleeves.

And then I turn around!


Sorry for the Photobooth photos. Somebody stole my camera at a party I had. I hope they're proud of the clunky pink thing, that they dont have the USB cord for. Jerks.

3  A strange muppet-y chain scarf/necklace/thing. in Crochet: Completed Projects by cheera on: April 22, 2009 02:38:13 PM
I saw these floating around, and I was like, you know what, Kermit-colored yarn? Lets do this.

Was not actually delicious.

I'm a hand model.

So, I basically just chained 6, joined with a slip stitch, then half-double crocheted in the round until the link was around 8 inches long. Then I slip-stitched it together, and proceeded to do the same with about ten or eleven of those guys. I used worsted weight silk/wool blend + an H hook.

A quick project. Easy peasy. And really dynamic looking. My coworkers enjoyed it and I got a bunch of compliments on it at the weirdo head shop by work. (No, I did not buy a bong.)

4  really really ridiculously shiny bathing suit. in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by cheera on: April 05, 2009 08:17:57 PM
'Cause I'm obnoxious, but I cant justify spending 80 bucks on a damn AA suit.

Instead I spent 7.

1/4 of a yard of this stuff + 1/4 of lining fabric later...oh and about six hours, we get this baby.

I feel like it should have a sound effect for the shiny.

Detail of front:

And the back of the top:

Got lazy and instead of shortening the back part (it was already serged to the lining) I just pleated it.

The bottoms are just boring side-tie ones. I didn't think anyone needed crotch/booty shots.

Aerosol hairspray + backcombing. Doesn't hurt to straighten your hair first, if you've got a flatiron. Usually my routine was straighten all the hair when its down, then spray lightly with aerosol spray to build up a little texture, backcomb at the root to help the hair stand up straight out from the head. Then spray upward with the aerosol hairspray, backcombing lightly on the sides, then clamp down on the hawk with the straightener to get it nice and flat.

If you know anyone in hair school, have them razor your hair, especially on your ends, and on the sides. Less weight will help your hawk battle gravity. For funsies, this is what mine looked like:

Not bad for a mohawk cut by my 60 something cosmetology teacher.

6  2 simple dresses, kimono inspired and houndstooth! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by cheera on: January 21, 2008 11:29:33 PM
So I haven't been active on the clothing front lately. My friends all got pregnant. I've been baby blanketing, via crocheting. Its...more portable?

Anyway, the other week I stayed up way too late and ordered fabric in an insomnia-inspired haze. I bought this awesome print and made this awesome kimono-inspired dress. The fabric drapes beautifully. I just wish it was warm enough to wear without tights because I dont have any that coordinate properly with the dress...I do, however, own coordinating boots. Hooray!

And next up we have a houndstooth dress, being modeled sadly by my dress form that I hate.

I realize I should have modeled this one on myself, as the empire waist is very boob-friendly. I dont know if you can tell, but the sleeve balloon over the cuffs slightly. Its really pretty.

7  Delightfully teal and brown brimmed beanie guy type thing deal. in Crochet: Completed Projects by cheera on: January 09, 2008 11:34:44 PM
Its 2:30 AM! I made a hat! It is this hat! http://www.steigerbeat.com/patternvb.html

It was quick and the pattern is really simple. Recommended.

I made it with Moda Dea Washable Wool in the teal color and the brown. Its really pretty and soft and has a beautiful slight sheen to it. Does it need buttons?

they should let people dye their hair any brand w/out being a stylists. dummies.

I disagree. Hair color brands are run by hairstylists -- and trust me, we stick together, and we look out for each other. Additionally, professional hair color like Framesi and Matrix are a little more complex than your box color from the drug store. The methods of application are a little more complicated than slopping it on your head with the incorrect volume of developer and hoping for the best. The brands are luxury -- you dont see Louis Vuitton sold at K-Mart.

At any rate, non-professional color wise, you want to use Special Effects Atomic Pink for thel longest lasting pink. I use it on any client that wants long-last vibrant pink and they've never complained. However, beware -- its very difficult to bleach out of the hair.

9  Super-simple front-post dc cowl scarf. in Crochet: Completed Projects by cheera on: December 30, 2007 06:03:47 PM
I've been lusting over a cowl scarf forever, since the little dangly bits on my conventional scarves have been bugging the crap outta me, so I picked up a skein of Thick n Quick an a Q hook on Friday night. Two hours later I had this...

Woo woo blue steel anyone?


The "front"

The "back".

I crocheted it in the round. This was my first time playing around with front-post dc and I kind of love it a lot. The texture it creates on both sides is just so pretty.

Its so smushy and lovely. I've been wearing it for the past few days nonstop. Apologizes for the iSight photos...I'm just really lazy.

10  We made a bunchies! in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by cheera on: December 23, 2007 11:03:57 PM
What is a bunchies? He's this guy: http://www.wildpixels.com/bunchies/ He's as old as the internet itself, or something.

Anyway, my boyfriend and I are weenies and one day, the summer before last, I was playing around with some green clay and decided to make him a present. I made the basic shape of him out of tin foil and used just one teeny block of Sculpey for the rest of him. He was baked, and I colored in his eyes with a Sharpie. I brought him over to give to my boyfriend and he decided he needed to be painted. We matched him as best we could and he became this guy:

Apologies for the less than stellar photo quality.
