1  Re: Vintage Halloween Swap 2018 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by TrickyMcVomit on: September 24, 2018 08:27:40 PM
Received from cadet120433 today and I love everything so much. I used to do way more swaps, but somehow,
a Halloween swap stays on my must do for the season. Maybe it's because Halloween stuff stays out at my house
year round and I just can't get enough of it.
Here is the sweetest felt pumpkin dude and a black cat magic book box:

I love boxes and bags. Anything to put my stuff in, because I have a lot of stuff   Grin
And I cannot stop looking at this Halloween tarot banner. The pictures are so detailed and magical I love it!!

I hung it down my hallway to take a pic of what it looks like up. I am working on making our old office into
a "dressing room" and This is going above the vanity I built....it's a work in progress and unfortunately
I can't reach behind it yet, so in the hallway it goes. I am so super psyched over this. It is going to be right
at home in my little makeup space.

Love love love it all <3 !!!
Thank you so much, cadet120433!!
and thank you, kittykill for organizing another round!!
Everybody's stuff is awesome, btw. I am swooning.
I need that spooky cat fabric!!!!

2  Meet Delirium ~ Custom American Girl Doll in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by TrickyMcVomit on: May 27, 2018 07:05:22 PM
I haven't posted in such a long time, but I am just head over heals in love with this little girl. I just HAD to show her off <3

When I was a kid, Santa brought me 2 American Girl Dolls. I got Kirsten Larson and one with blonde hair and brown eyes just like me. Unfortunately, spending twenty years living in my Mom's attic, caused each of them to lose pigmentation in one eye.

It turns out that the American Girl company considers this 1990s "silver eye" to be a manufacturing defect and they will replace it for free if you send your sick doll to their "Doll Hospital". I was going to send both, but I ended up only sending the one that looks like me and decided to give Kirsten (the one with the pigtails) a makeover. Besides her silver eye, I had also cut her hair wonky when I was a kid....the glue on her wig was also giving up, so I decided she would be the one I would try my hand at revamping. I settled on the character "Delirium" of the Endless from the Sandman comics. She is one of my favorite characters anywhere. Her hair and clothing change constantly. The only thing that is constant about her is her mismatched eyes.

I ended up destroying her original eyes in the process and then had a hard time putting the new ones in, so I had to take a short cut which cost her her eyelashes and her classic American Girl sleepy eyes. I cut and styled her new wig by braiding and boiling it. Using youtube tutorials, I flocked her shaved half so it's realistic lol. Her fishie base was a Littlest Pet Shop angel fish and her dog, Barnabas is a German Shepherd Funko Pop. I wanted to get a plush dog, but the vinyl allowed me to have complete control over his gray markings. Her clothes are store bought, but her fishnet catsuit was a single thigh high fishnet stocking that I cut and hand sewed onto her body

4  Barbed Wire Baseball Bat Earring Cactus Jack (or Negan) Inspired in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by TrickyMcVomit on: March 08, 2017 02:29:55 PM
I feel like I haven't posted in ages, but yesterday, I whittled a tiny baseball bat and I had to share!! Look at how cute it is!!! It's just under 3 inches =0)

I am making a casual Cactus Jack outfit. He used to wield a barbed wire baseball bat, long before Negan of Walking Dead fame...but it was this miniature Lucille tutorial that helped me along: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eudPG680SM4 I didn't follow it 100% but I still love how it came out.

I also only made one, because I was afraid they might not match if I did two....I should have done a little at a time on one and then a little on another to keep them even to make a pair, but I didn't...it works out fine though because fun fact: Mick Foley (Cactus Jack) only has one ear.

It just occurred to me that I didn't get a pic of the bucket....but I did take a pic of everything neatly Tetrised inside it.

And here are all of the things from Alexampersandra!!! She made me a sweet little candy corn print bag for microwaving.....I actually have a teddy bear that can fit into, I am so excited.

I also ate half of that giant bag of candy corns. I regret nothing.

Thank you so much, Alexampersandra/...I love everything!!!  Grin
 OH! and I love this gallery so far!! Happy Halloween everybody!!

6  Re: Everyday is Halloween Gallery SO May 20th in The Swap Gallery by TrickyMcVomit on: May 24, 2016 12:48:25 PM
I have been under the weather the last few days, and today I called out from work to get some rest. My PO is next to work, so I told my bf that I was worried that I wasn't going to be able to pick up my package. I came downstairs to find it on my computer chair. What a sweet guy <3

So here it is, it all it's Halloweenie glory:

Don't mind my dirty old windowsill, I had to put it up on my side table immediately. I couldn't stop laughing about it. I love it so much. (The blue and green rings were just extras, I put on Rosemary to display for the photo)

Thank you kittykill for organizing and for sending me such a wonderful package!! Happy Halloween everybody!!

I'd choose Frankenstein's monster from Monster Squad.

but NOT the one from universal. I met him once and I accidentally looked into his human eyes. I didn't like it.

My partner hasn't posted photos yet. Unfortunately, I only have a pic of the stocking and not what was inside of it. 

The fins are a "fabric" that I made out of layers of tulle and faric paint and hand painted. The scales are individually drawn on and then piped of with iridescent glitter fabric paint.

I have been super busy at work and at life but I have been thoroughly enjoying my stocking things from anubisheart and I finally have a minute to post pics...hold on to your Santa hats, it's pret-ty awesome.

The stocking is based off of Buddy the elf from "Elf"!!! There are so many fantastic things inside =0)

She made hand blown glass ornaments. Seriously. And super cute minnie bow hair clip...

Another Elf craft, a stenciled quote shirt...

Pajama pants. Hand made flannel pajama pants which I have worn every night since receiving and I am totally wearing them right now (also pictured, my elf shoes that I made)
...and all of this wonderful stuff and mostly candy wrappers because I ate most of it. Utah honey, flowering teas, a key ornament, socks, a cookie cutter, soap, a skull shaped teaspoon (OMG!!) and so much candy including alcohol infused chocolates.

Thank you so so much anubisheart. I love everything dearly <3
I had so much fun with this swap and everybody made such wonderful things. Merry Christmas to all!!

10  Buddy the Elf (girl) Christmas Costume in Costumes: Completed Projects by TrickyMcVomit on: November 17, 2015 05:48:03 PM
I made this Buddy inspired costume last year to wear for Christmas

I added the plush fur to the dress. I made the hat, the curly toed shoes and the Etch A Sketch purse (close up here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=441651.0 ) I even made a snow globe of my favorite bar as a gift to them (where I am pictured above) AND I smelled like maple syrup!!! =0)

I travel from PA to CT for Christmas eve in costume every year. Last year, it was rainy and cruddy and I almost didn't do it...but I thought that would be when people need the smiles most. While waiting for my coffee at a Rest Stop, I was approached by two tiny little girls in Elf on the Shelf jammies that wanted to know if I worked for Santa. My heart almost exploded.

I had so much fun in this costume, I'm probably going to fix it up and wear it again this year (the shoes and hat didn't make it). People get so caught up in the chaos of the holidays that they forget to smile and more importantly to make other people smile =0)

Bonus photo of me meeting my first niece for the first time (I wasn't ready!)
