1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Camera question... on: November 14, 2008 09:30:54 AM
I would like to know what kind of point and shoot camera you guys recommend.
What brand, or features are most important to take good pictures of crafts?
Anything helps!

Its nothing super special, but I think they look A LOT nicer this way:



3  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Zaraki Kenpachi costume ( from Bleach) Super duper fat post! on: September 08, 2008 01:55:03 PM
I did this some time last year, but I never posted it cause I don't have internet at home poor, poor me. So, anywhoo... this was my first "clothing" sewing project,like I said, it's a costume for my nephew, who if you know Bleach does not even come close to having the same bodytype as Kenni, I guess you could say that he is the stretched out chibi form. ^_^;I did it without a pattern, and I think it came out pretty cool. You be the judge:

This is the back of the coat and the little white fabric on top is the sash, I actually counted all the little dots and doodads(which meant watching lots of Bleach)but I made my nephew paint those on, I think he did a pretty good job with that.

This is the front of the coat with the shirt underneath:

These are the socks, I couldn't resist trying them on; so cool, so cool.

These are the sandals, I made them out of cheapo sandals from wally-world, and an old rice bag that I had stashed away, like the pack rat that I am. The straps were made out of braided twine. These were my favorite. They make me so proud Cry

This is a front shot of him wearing it, I made the patch out of an old wallet and some elastic. It was a bit of a pain, but I made it work eventually. Oh, and the choker, can't forget the choker.

Ah, the hair, it would have been a waste if it weren't for the hair. I took lots of practice, hairspray, and patience. There are exactly eleven spikes. I sewed the bells on.

Doesn't he look happy? This is the whole costume, I forgot to take a picture of the pant alone, but, eh.

All he was missing was his zanbakto and Yoirichi; I was going to do my hair light pink, but at the time it was blue, and it would have been a pain, as for the zanbakto, well, he couldn't carry THAT around in school!

4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Few things I "reconned" around my apt. on: September 26, 2007 06:43:01 PM
The first is a "leather" wooden box with contrast "stitching", it was a little wooden box that some tea bags came in, I thought it was too cute to not be used, and I wanted it to match my other things.

This is a nice little soda bottle that we found at Cost Plus; I'm not usually one for soda, but I got it cause it was cute and because  I knew exactly what the ingredients were.  Wink I used a few drops of red food coloring and water for the "soda" I then sealed the top with some glue, I also used some outdoor Modge Podge on the label for safekeeping.

This is just a sad little rug and bamboo rod that I had, I didn't know what else too do with it...

Sorry for the super crappy pics, all I have is a cruddy camera phone!
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / First project post and first shrinky attempt (Bleachtastic)! on: September 26, 2007 01:14:35 PM
I made this with my nephew in mind (we love Bleach as a family) By the way, the key ring is an old gauged earing and I sanded and spray painted the keys. :

Here they are close up:

The logo on Rukias glove:

Shinigami logo:


Also, made myself a hell butterfly (from the show):

My brother couldn't believe I made them!
Now everyone wants Bleach key chains, glad they're easy to make!
