131  Civil War day dress in Halloween Costumes by cigarettesandvalentines on: April 27, 2007 12:14:16 PM
GRRR. my computer just randomly shut down the internet TWICE, so i had to type this into word to make sure the computer wouldn't freak out. again. ANYWAY>>>>>

my mom made this dress for me for halloween a few years ago, and i think it's probably the best costume she made me, of course except for the Peanut Vendor in 8th grade. but there are no pictures of that hanging around.


she made everything except the corset and hoop, since we ran out of time (like we always do at halloween time)

on to the pics (there's a lot, so bear with me)

chemise, front and back respectively:

pantaloons, front and back. i promise they looked WAY better on me vs the dressform. lol

Petticoat number one:

Petticoat number two: once again, it looked better on me. Though, the pattern was made for someone approx 56 and Im 52, so it drug on the ground a bit, even with the heeled shoes

 Close up of back:

Kippy was highly interested:


Actual dress. Cool acorn print we waited and waited for to have enough fabric. It is NOT as lumpy as it looks in the bodice


Collar. The only thing I ironed today. LOL

Man that looks lumpy and bad. But it isnt. I promise


Detail of lining or camp follower mode. Tee hee

and imagine me, if you will, trying to haul the whole damn thing back in the house, the cat weaving in and out of my path, before I realized I should undress the dressform before transporting it.

Thanks for looking!

132  my entry :D American Revolution Soldier's jacket (lots of imgs) in Costumes: Completed Projects by cigarettesandvalentines on: April 22, 2007 04:08:44 PM
i hope this is where we're supposed to post this... if it's not, i'm so sorry for causing a hassle.

i have many favorite periods in history, but i think by far the 18th century is my favorite. if i had months and months and wayyy more skillz, i'd totally make a sac-back dress, but yeah... i don't have wither of those. soooo... since i don't have the time/abilities to make a dress, COAT!

i just finished this today Cheesy
i must say, this has been a big accomplishment, as it's the first jacket i've ever made, first period peice i've ever done, and first time i've drafted my own pattern.  most of the stuff i do is recon, so this was a big task, but i'm REALLY happy with how it came out. i'd give you some action shots, but it doesn't fit, since the pattern i made my pattern off of was male. yeah. waahh. oh well. enjoy!

close up of cuff

napoleon pose (yeah yeah thirty years off, but whatever)

thanks for looking!

133  finger bead/pendant in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by cigarettesandvalentines on: April 21, 2007 04:50:18 PM

in my beading class, we're making wet clay beads, but due to specifications of size, it's a little boring. so i zipped through the required amount and set to making little figures instead.  i came out with a finger that evloved from a chicken (dont' ask. Wink ). since it's too big and they won't let me fire it, what to do? Sculpey!

knee shot

so here's my delima.  i want to make a necklace of these, kind of in pillager fashion, but i don't know if it would look caveman-y...

something like this:

ignore the crappy drawing.

so what do you think?
thanks for looking

134  my computer died on spring break, so... SHRINKYDINKS! in Completed Projects by cigarettesandvalentines on: April 19, 2007 03:59:59 PM
i'm not sure if this is where this should go, but i really can't think of where else.
so. yeah. my computer died. wiped the hard drive. had to get the Dell folks to ship us a new one. was without internet for a week and a half. now realize i am an internet addict.  hahah anyway... i was bored and had shiny white shrinkydink paper and a couple sharpies.

some are from the My Chemical Romance cd cover art for The Black Parade, the skully guy is the Adeline Steet Clothing logo and the penguins are from I Want To Be Your Personal Penguin children's book. Smiley

okay. maybe not 'extravaganza'...

i'm on spring break, and what better than to procrastinate on all my other projects and break out the Happy Feet DVD?

it doesn't really look like Mumble, but it's pretty cool. LOL

you seriously don't know how long it took me to get this font

oh yeah, if you havent' seen this movie, it's the most adorable thing ever.

139  afi sweatshirt... expanded now with a really bad explanation of how i did it :D in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by cigarettesandvalentines on: March 13, 2007 09:24:28 PM

i scored me some merch at the AFI concert i went to on the ninth... but, alas, it wouldn't zip up.  NEVER FEAR! i opened the sides and added stips of a striped shirt i found inside the couch. yes... inside the couch. i know it's nothing big, and took me all but 15 minutes to do, but i like it maybe a little too much.

thanks for looking!

oh! and also it's the first thing i got to use my new dressform with Grin

140  My Chemical Romance/ A Clockwork Orange Tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by cigarettesandvalentines on: February 23, 2007 04:14:47 PM

i made this tote a while ago for a friend who's a big My Chemical Romance fan.

i made the tote and stenciled the patch.  it's the first lined bag i've made without a pattern and i think it looks pretty good... from far away at least Wink

oh yeah, i was in a hurry to finish it and accidently put the handles on the wrong way Roll Eyes



surprisingly, it can fit a lot of stuff...

thanks so much for looking!
