1  Re: Decorated shirt gallery in The Swap Gallery by electronicfly on: May 20, 2009 10:27:55 AM
Wheeeeeeee! I got my parcel from GH today!

My mom found it outside our postbox (it couldn't fit into the slot, lol) when we were on our way out for dinner, and I sorta squealed, tore up the envelope (that's one tough envelope!) and changed in the car. Tongue It was a dark night though, highly doubt anyone saw me. Tongue

First, tore the envelope.

Then, I read the letter. Cheesy

Then I changed (no photo on that. HAHAHHA) and when I went home, started taking pictures!

Bottom dragon:

Top dragon:

The back:

And all that fab-ness (or Chun-ness, as we say here in Malaysia), was from GH's FIRST TIME air brushing! Weeee!!!

Great job, and I love it to bits! Came at a great time too (I just finished reading the latest book from a series I've been following for years, and there was a part where a live dragon battled with the spirit of a dragon. When I saw the shirt, I thought of that scene immediately, coz it was exactly how I imagined the scene to be!)

2  Bjork's Swan Costume in Halloween Costumes by electronicfly on: November 01, 2008 09:27:01 PM
I had a party where the theme was Horrific Celebrities, so I decided to go as Bjork (not that many people here knows her, so there's less chance of another Bjork. Although I did spot 1.  Sad) together with a sash that says "Voted Most Fashionable" for the horrific part.  Tongue

I (thankfully) could wear the tutu for 9 years, so all I had to do was find a feather boa (not that easy in Malaysia) and a tank top (couldn't find a body suit), paint my old (but clean!) school sock, and poof! Chubby Bjork came to life.

My tutu.

There was bird poop on my feather boa!

The only full body picture that I have. Sigh.

With the other Bjork, and my sash that kept on coming apart. Should have pinned it instead of sticky-taping it together.

Really sad part was when people kept on going "Eh Swan Princess!" and I had to go "No! Bjork! Go Google it!". Only those slightly older or those who watch E! knew who I was.  Cry

Had a lot of compliments of having the most unique costume, but I didn't win best dressed for both parties I attended. Sigh.

Had a whole load of fun though. My first time celebrating Halloween.  Grin

3  Re: Recycled Magazines: Mini Trash Bins/Storage Containers in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by electronicfly on: January 02, 2008 01:33:39 AM
My dad loves using those paper boxes thingies, but he always forgets how to fold it even after I thought him 1040219740192750165032503 times, so I'm the official rubbish box folder in the family. Cheesy

hope it's understandable!

edit: does anyone know how to resize the pic so it can be read? I've uploaded a HUGE pic but it got resized into this tiny thing again...

4  Re: "My Country Doesn't Have That" Round 9 Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by electronicfly on: November 20, 2007 10:01:46 PM
Before my dad could drive the car into the porch I was shooing him out to get my parcel from Trillian.  Cheesy ;

The sad condition the box came in. I wonder if the plane gone through terbulence.

All the yummy goodness squeezed into the box. And my mom was just telling me I should get on a diet. Maybe after eating all these.
Clockwise from top-right: Truly Juicy gummies, TWO packs of Dragster 1000 sugar coated sweets, Tutti Frutti jelly beans, a mix of 3 types of Dumle sweets (original, licorice and orange-mango) white chocolate with blueberries, uber cute <3 shaped Moomin lolly and a bar of milk and white chocolate.

Trillian also got me 3 fabric paints in blue, yellow and red. The black is there to show you how tiny is the bottle which I bought for the most outrageous price. *Sigh* for the love of crafts. Btw Trillian, I love your choices! Now I'm going to look for a white shirt and paint my country's flag on for Independance Day...next year. (Aug 31st) Grin

In a little envelope was this beautiful fused glass (I think?) necklace which Trillian bought from a store which sells handmade stuff local artists made. How I knew? Trillian so brilliantly added a short letter about it, and others too.

Now I'm off to ask friends to go out with me so I can show off the necklace.  Cheesy

Trillian, you've just made my day!

5  First Stenciling project in Stenciling: Completed Projects by electronicfly on: November 02, 2007 12:27:06 AM

The top two are for two birthday boys ( I could only find blank, guys shirts. Sigh.)While the banana one is for a friend who's leaving to Beijing to study Mandarin. In Malaysia, when you refer to someone as being a banana it means that person is a Chinese who doesn't understand Chinese, hence the yellow exterior and white interior. No insult intended.

The back of the shirts, right under the collar. The banana's well, a banana, and on the other two shirts are my friends' initials, KKTJ and WH.

Close up of the banana shirt. The original colour of the shirt in this picture is closer than of the first pic. I still need to learn how to use my camera properly. Tongue

Anyone know the best way of cutting out stencils from contact paper? It was so difficult for me, especially at tiny curves like at the words. Also, how do you prevent smearing? Some of my letters came out mushed... Undecided Freezer paper's not an option for me since they don't sell it in my country, or at least in places I went to look.

6  Re: Loosing my mind! How to make an adjustable cord bracelet! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by electronicfly on: April 07, 2007 01:23:41 AM

the red bits are the new steps. =D

Since you're using two cords, simply take both as one single cord.You'll have to repeat the knot on the other end though.
PM me if it's not clear.
