1  All new! Gory, bloody, not-for-the-squeamish trinket boxes! in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by SassetteOPants on: January 17, 2009 09:43:18 PM
Okay, so they're not THAT bad, but I wanted to warn away those with a more delicate constitution  Wink

Some of you may remember the trinket boxes I posted here a few years ago.  I never stopped making them, I just moved away from the internet for a while Smiley

Here's the first, inspired by the campfire story about the girl with the green ribbon on her neck:

The second, a Day of the Dead-ish piece inspired by my late mother:

The third, just because I like hangin' eyeballs:

The last, a deep gash that bleeds glitter:

Thanks for lookin' at my stuff!

2  Re: vinyl + electrical tape = deluded? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by SassetteOPants on: December 28, 2006 12:21:09 AM
Hmmm...I've worked with vinyl (and latex) a few times.  I'm no expert, but this is what I know:
To get that nice, tight, effect--even if you don't want fetish wear--you need to be able to stretch the material just so, so you don't end up with a poorly fitted bag of a dress.  It's unlikely that Velcro would allow you to do that, and it would very likely make some unpleasant lumps n' bumps along the seamlines.  It's also much more rigid than apparel-weight vinyl. 
(Joybilee--I don't mean to poop on your idea!  As I said, I'm just writing from my own experience.)
You could probably use your electrical tape and vinyl to make a more mod-ish, '60s style dress--not this specific style, but this sort of simple shape:

Something simple like that, without a lot of the tightly-fitted curves required of the dresses you posted, is easily customized, would stay together well through the night, give you lots of crafty points, and feel comfortable.  You could make cutouts down the front (think of designs by Mary Quant and early Betsey Johnson), or make appliques out of the tape.  I'd reinforce it with duct tape on the inside seams, myself.
Good luck!

My newest:

An iris and carnation for my mom, the made-up word 'insinuendos' for my pop (he was a very smart man, but always combined 'innuendo' with 'insinuate' to make his own Spanish-sounding 'word'.  Hee!). 

By Sky Winchester of One Shot Tattoo in San Francisco.  http://www.oneshottattoo.com/Sky.htm  He's doing a companion piece on the other side in two weeks Smiley  I also have a work-in-progress by Karina Figueroa, also of One Shot http://www.oneshottattoo.com/Karina.htm, but I'd rather post that when it's finished. 
I highly recommend One Shot.  It's a great place with a very friendly vibe, and one of my best friends is apprenticing there to boot!

5  My latest lady *NOT FOR THE SQUEAMISH* in Completed Projects by SassetteOPants on: September 09, 2005 09:32:49 AM
She had her heart torn out, and she's so sad...

I made this as a birthday present for my good friend.  There's a lot of personal symbolism in it.  I'm not sure if I'll replicate it.  There's also a good bit more detail, but I was in a rush (I finished it about two hours before his party!), and didn't get a million photos...I'll post more after he snaps another pic!

I edited the subject line.

Is it cool to post my work-in-progress?
I just got home from getting tattooed by Karina Figueroa http://www.oneshottattoo.com/Karina.htm.  She's an amazing artist with a feather touch, and she's really sweet, too Smiley 
This is actually partially colored--all we have to do is color the top lotus red, and fill in the cherry blossoms--but I haven't removed my bandage yet, so I can't take a photo of it!  So I'm just posting the outline, because I want to show off as much as I can because I'm excited :p

Eventually, I'll have more flowers (and some bugs, too) creeping down the small of my back to tie in with the floral piece on my right hip.  Yay!


I just got out of the shower, and my roomie just woke from her nap (she got inked today too!), so here's a pic of what it REALLY looks like!

I got my swap package from sleepywalkin today!  It's awesome!  There is a fairy box, a framed stitched flower, tattoo shop card, and some really cool jewelry (2 bracket and earing sets and a bracelet and necklace set)!  I will get a picture taken of it and posted as soon as possible. Thanks for an awesome swap package!

EDIT: Here's the picture!

I LOVE the lotus flower.  Really pretty!

i got my package from sassette and it...is...gorgeous!  sassy, your work is definitely an art!  i love everything so much.  did you take pics?  i don't have a digital camera, but i can borrow the bf's this weekend if need be.

i received lovely items, all crafted out of polymer clay (something i've never used before, but i'm totally inspired to try working with this now).  there's a lipstick-shaped tube with a horeshoe, lucky clover and lucky 7, and little tiny rhinestones (love them).  a little pot with a pretty pinup lady face (the detail is amazing).  and a tealight displayed on a mirror with a beautiful swallow and banner.  it is really hard to explain, but you'll see how amazing everything is when pics are posted.

thanks sassy!!!   Cheesy
Woohoo!  You are very welcome!  Everything was really fun to make and I was hoping you'd like the whole little theme!  Polymer clay is so fun to play with, I'm glad you want to try it!

I don't have a pic of the lipstick case-thingy for some reason, but here's the box and the tealight:

9  Re: Who wears matching shoes anyway? in Shoes: Completed Projects by SassetteOPants on: August 13, 2005 09:24:31 AM
I made these sometime last year and I love them to death.  They're just cheap canvas flats painted with acrylics.  People are always asking me if I know that my shoes don't match... yeah.  Do I look like the type of person walks around in different shoes without knowing?  (I hope not!)

I love ballet flats.

Not to be a grumpybear, but stupid questions like "Hey!  Are you aware your shoes don't match?"  drive me nutty.  I once pulled a small table out of a sidewalk trash pile.  It was really heavy (in fact, I had to abandon it), and as I was lugging it home some guy stopped me and said, "Don't you know that's too heavy to carry?"  
People can be soooooooo dumb, it's frightening.

10  Re: Gory, bloody, not-for-the-squeamish horror tins! **UPDATED!** WOO! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by SassetteOPants on: August 05, 2005 05:57:58 PM
These are essentially the same tins as in my original post, but I've added oodles more details.  I'm adding clear microbeads, Austrian crystals, and lots more greenery, shading, and color.  I like!
Oh, and they don't have anything written on their banners because they're still cooling Smiley

Another view:


I'm not very happy with this little lady.  I don't like how her guts turned out because I didn't use any reference material to make them realistic...I'll do that next time!
