your hat looks super nice.

i tried making one and i followed the measurements and instructions and everything and it turned out waaaayyyyy too tiny. i dont even have a big head, i'd actually say its on the small side. but the hat could fit a child, i could barely put it on.

if you dont mind explaining, i'd love to know how you made that breastplate. i'm not asking for a tutorial, i'm just wondering did you glue the feathers to a band or something?

5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / we all live in a yellow submarine on: October 25, 2009 07:40:10 PM
for my physics class we had to make kaleidoscopes. and moi, being as crafty as i am, decided to go all out and make my kaleidoscope the yellow submarine. cause kaleidoscopes are kinda trippy and so is the yellow submarine.

we got extra credit if we could figure out how to make the beads move separately than the rest of the kaleidoscope, so the nose of the submarine twists.
my friend maggie helped me make it. we found this picture online and used it as a reference.

this is the body of the submarine without and details

and here are some cellphone shots of it in the bathroom at school before i turned it in.

so i wanted to be a pirate for halloween and what does every lady pirate need? a leather corset!! but then, as i was making it, i realized that it didnt really want to be for a pirate. this corset screamed hippie.

for this corset i started with a leather/suede jacket i had.
it looked very much like this one but was dark brown:

so i cut it up, and used simplicity 5006 altering it so the corset would be an underbust. its purposefully sloppy, cause when i started out, i figured what pirate goes through the trouble of making their clothes perfect? they're too busy pillaging to be OCD about sewing.

and voila!

its got 3 mother of pearl snaps on the back to close it.

the last two are it with my costume. its a peasant skirt and a green top. i plan on wearing the flower headband i made a couple months ago too. this is my post for the headband:

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / my homecoming dress!! on: September 20, 2009 07:26:38 PM
So what do you do when you're home alone and are sick?


I actually started this a couple of weeks ago but that was just to sew the strips of fabric together

I hate how i don't own a serger, all my seams are crappy and already fraying. I double stitched most seams for extra reinforcement as my dress frays while I dance in it
I designed the dress myself, and used a sleep shirt pattern that I altered as I went along. The dress was originally supposed to have sleeves, but I like it how it is now.
The dress is a light rose colored satin and the black parts are satin also. It has a split at the bottom and there's a zipper down the front so it can be risque if i want  Wink  I really like how this dress turned out and as a senior this year I wanted to wear something unique for my last homecoming

This is really cute  Cheesy

Though when i saw the thumbnail of this i thought it was the reddit alien.
and the chain behind it really makes it look like the web/babies from the infamous spider photo which i wont give a link to cause its just so gross.
my first thought was that you replaced the spider with the alien in the photo. but now that i know its an adorable little creature on a chain, i like it a whole lot better.
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Headband on: August 24, 2009 08:54:11 PM
So i'm not really sure if this is considered jewelry or trinkets but if i was feeling really rebellious i guess i could wear the headband as a necklace? if this isn't the correct category then feel free to move it =]

anyways, i found this image online and absolutely fell in love with the flower headband the girl is wearing. i'd say its kinda hippie meets super girly cause who else would wear a giant flower on their head? lol

i have a huge old pink sheet i've slowly been cutting up for various projects and once i saw this i realized the sheet was about the same color. i estimated on the size of the petals and made a paper stencil. the beads in the center are from an old broken necklace and the band is that suede string you can buy at craft stores.

my cat Charlie decided the suede band was a perfect toy and just had the get in the these pictures
