Aaaand done. (Posted 4th May 2009)

I can now say it is officially finished! YAAAY
lol that's all I have to say >.>

The fabric paint of d00m (Posted 2nd May 2009)

After many hours of having the sun in my eyes and wasps in my conservatory (why didn't I close the door? >.>) I had a good news and bad news with the fabric paint and the t-shirt.
Bad news was it was really fiddly to get a straight line. I used a small paintbrush and a small roller that I got in Hobbycraft, it seemed to work alright but it just looked really messy on the edges.

Then my mother, bless her, suggested I could have used masking tape to keep it straight.

Epic facepalm moment.
I did that for the back side, as in the picture, and it came out lovely. Then I neatened it up with the same method on the front.

At least now I know what to expect when using fabric paint!! 8D

Nearly done =O (Posted 26th April 2009)

Now that I've finished the bandana, all that's left is to paint the stripes on the t-shirt, and then I'm done! wow!
And then I have to work my socks off on my Freya outfit! Not so wow.
But still, I feel really happy with this outfit. Pirate pose!! 8D

Stuff is gooo (Posted 28th February 2009)

Found the perfect black gloves!
Spent the afternoon doing the white circles to go onto the jeans x_x It took so looong dammit.
Soon I'll actually sew them onto the jeans....>w>...help, Mumsy?

2009 start! (Posted 12th January 2009)

Okies, now Xmas is out of the way I can finally try and start this!
I bought a white top, which instead of looking for a striped top that is accurate, I'll be painting the stripes on with fabric paint ^w^
Need to get pale jeans though....>_< and black gloves!
