21  Dollar store skirt! + more in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by losingstreak on: November 05, 2004 01:45:40 PM
I got this skirt in the dollar store over the summer figuring I could do something neat with it. So naturally it sat around my house fully intact until last weekend when I needed something quick to do for halloween.


I know its not much. I just took it in a hell of a lot, and made it so it has ties as closeur, and then just 'layered' it.

And this is the shirt I wore with it [on halloween I mean]

That was before I took it in though.

And then this is just another shirt I reconstructed:

These pictures are from awhile ago, and I could get a good shot of it. So it was before I touched it up a bit. I'm too lazy to take new picuters though.
I added the black fabric to the sides [the shirt was old so it was sorta tight] and I made a v-neck.

^Like you people always say things about it when I wear it. The attention over such a silly belt is so odd, haha.

Heres mine. <33 I love it so much

Heres mine:

You can't see because my digicam sucks badly, but it says:
Flipping through the paper today
Looking for a specific page
Don't want to find her full name followed by dates
Cause when I left her alone she made a sound like a moan
"Your known by everyone for everything you've done"
Fuck buying flowers for grave,
I'd rather buy you a oneway non-stop to anywhere
Find anyone, do anything, forget and start again, love
She said she won't go, it hurts to much, to stand by
You've got to stop and draw a line
Everyone here has to choose a side, tonight,
The moment of truth is haunting you
Don't forget your family regardless of what you choose to do
You can't decide, and they're all screaming "why won't you?"
I'll start the engine, but I can't take this ride for you
I'll draw your bath and I'll load your gun
But I hope so bad that you'll bathe and hunt
[Thats lyrics from Streetlight Manifesto - A better place,a better time]

I had the webbing and everything lying around my house already, so I finally did something with it.

Its surpising hard to take pictures of a belt while your wearing it

25  Can't be caught in Stenciling: Completed Projects by losingstreak on: September 13, 2004 02:21:15 PM
This was SUCH a bitch to cut out! I think it came out nice though so its worth it.

I smudged up the edges [purposly] because I didn't like the way the clean lines looked. [The pictures don't do it justice]

[long story about that pose, lol]

27  Simple dress->skirt reconstruction in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by losingstreak on: September 01, 2004 02:55:28 PM
The other day I was cleaning out my closet and I found this rad dress that I had in 8th grade, and it just screamed 'Make me useable again!!!' [lol] so thats what i did.
The bottom was slanted downward before hand but it got cut off on the picture..


[it looks like the drawsting is off center, but the skirt is just folder over to fit on the hanger]
The drawstring is only on the front part, it doesn't go all the way around.

I know its very simple, but its my frist reconstruction so i've gotta start somewhere right!? Tongue

Thanks people <3
I made another one [i'm on a huge crafty kick right now. Tongue]

Its really grey and black striped.. Like i said before, my digicam is awful so it looks blue. =S

Its a little hard to tell but the sleeves say 'Super Rad' [which is a song by the Aquabats, and the little dude is one of thier symbols]

29  First stencil. //edit: 2nd [Aquabats] stencil added =] in Stenciling: Completed Projects by losingstreak on: August 28, 2004 08:10:07 AM
I've seen the stuff people have stenciled here and everything is so rad I had to try it for myself. Tongue
[My digicam sucks beyond beliefe, so sorry about the quality of the pictures!! The shirt is really red]


I can't read, so the white fabric paint [i couldnt find cheap textile medium at Micheals] got all puffy and textured when I ironed it. =X I wish it hadn't, but it looks sorta cool.
In total it cost me about $4.50 [$1.40 for each bottle of paint, and about $1.50 for the sponge roller brush]. I already had the shirt from like a year ago [I think I wore it all of once for a school concert] and the cardstock I used for the stencil.
