1  Jellyfish Embroidered on a Handkerchief. in Needlework: Completed Projects by HotGlueGuy on: January 10, 2008 11:40:13 AM
Well, here's the story:

I was really bored the other night, so I picked my needles up again (for the first time in a long time) and got down to some freehand embroidery.

I had no idea what I was going to stitch, and I guess I've had Jellyfish on the brain.

The embroidery floss is the kind that fades from light to dark, which is how I got the nifty shading.

enjoy. (i did)

2  "Camp Fisty"... a Naughty T-Shirt. in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by HotGlueGuy on: December 27, 2007 08:08:53 PM
So, this is one of my first Silk Screens. woowoo!

My Friend Em and I screened them for our Halloween costumes, as dirty 1980's camp counselors.
It was a little "Tongue-in-Cheek". The image is kinda "broken up" but it was the "Vintage-look"
I was going for.  The Screen was hand painted rather than an image transfer.  And yes, it was painted twice for the 2 colors.

This was a lot fun, but WAY too cold!

thanks for checking them out!

3  James Bond 007's Walther PPK Gun (Embroidered on a T-Shirt) in Needlework: Completed Projects by HotGlueGuy on: December 20, 2007 07:11:58 PM

This is James Bond's Walther PPK Gun embroidered on a dirty ol' gray T-Shirt.

I stitched it while watching those damn 007 movie marathons they show EVERY year.

(I'm a junky)

hope you like it!

too bad I don't have a pic wearing it, maybe I'll add that later!

4  Baroque Dress made from Tyvek and Target Bags in Costumes: Completed Projects by HotGlueGuy on: December 20, 2007 06:33:31 PM
Hey Hey!

So I made this for a Theatre Production of Hamletmachine.  Its designed by my good friend Emily as a way to torture me.

It's a Baroque marie antoinette-style Dress made from Tyvek (A.K.A FedEX bags).  It also has flowers around the neck made of Target shopping bags.  woo woo

It was my first big draping project (i'm a flat pattern kinda guy).  The panniers are made out of canvis and are about the size of toliet seats.  Which is kinda hystarical. 

The dress also needed to open in the front instead of the back, because the actress is wearing a military camo uniform underneath.

I'm pretty proud of how this sucker turned out...  even if I was ready to kill Emily for having me make it.  And now, I would LOVE to sew with tyvek again!!  enjoy!
