Nyjacky's Veigar plush

I can't believe I spent 10 hours straight (with help from my mom) working on this plush and never posted it >.< I made this for MLG Raleigh for Nyjacky's birthday. He was very excited about it and I was able to get my picture with the entire Curse team and he posted a picture of me, him and Veigar on the Curse facebook!

Laptop Case

Yay I finally have something to post! I have been so busy with getting things ready for my trip to Germany and with work that I have not really had time or energy to be creative. I did need a laptop cover though so I decided to make one. It's nothing heavy duty, just something to keep my laptop safe during travel and in my backpack. I have been in love with this mushroom fabric and wanted to buy it every time I'm at Joann but wasn't sure what to use it for. Well now I finally have a use! I love the way it turned out and I might put one on my Etsy. I will have a very long and grueling flight tomorrow and this will keep my laptop nice and cozy ^_^ Some of these pictures didn't turn out great because there is 100% humidity outside so my camera kept fogging up...





I gotta represent the Chive while I'm in Germany :3

Also I wanted my hair to be a bit brighter. Wasn't planning on it being THIS bright but I still like it. Here is my magenta hair! (It stared freaking out as soon as I walked out into the humid air haha)


Wow I'm even paler on camera lol

Black Butler Felties

I've been in California for the past week (yay!). I've been to Comic Con, the zoo and the beach with Hunter. Now that he's gone back home I have been a bit bored so I decided to make something. This is the product of a day of boredom haha. I made a chibi Pluto, Grell Sutcliff, and Undertaker. They didn't turn out quite as good as I wanted them to but I think they still turned out pretty cute -^_^-. Grell just needs a tiny ribbon around his neck which I will pick up next time I'm at a craft store. I'm planning on making a bigger Grell which will be easier to work with. My fingers are killing me from cutting out tiny pieces of felt and trying to carefully make faces. I also want to make a burlap sack Sebastian doll to go with my (far in the future) Grell cosplay but that won't be till I'm back home and have access to a sewing machine again. I miss sewing and making things so much! I would love to have at least 2-3 projects a week, but alas, work comes first. Enjoy their tiny cuteness and I hope to have more soon! (Suggestions for future projects always welcome!).


 Grell is my favorite character and I think he turned out the best

Fact Bat

Recently I have been playing with polymer clay and I decided to make my brother a present while he was out of town visiting family. I made the Fact Bat from Rosario + Vampire. He flies around covering up boob shots and giving facts about fights and events. Most of the time he is pretty adorable but can get annoying haha. It took me a few days to make him (only because I didn't have time to make him in one sitting) but in all only took about 3 hours to make and paint. The wings were the hardest part because I didn't want to make them too flimsy but also not too bulky. I am very happy with how he turned out and my brother was pleasantly surprised to find this little guy hanging on his wall when he got home. I am trying to decide whether to add him to my Etsy shop because he is kind of fragile I would just have to stay on the wall and not used as a necklace or key chain.

Animazement 2012

I had a great time with my friends and Hunter at Animazement last weekend! It was so much better than last year because there were a lot more people and vendors. I cosplayed as Lilith from Borderlands, Arctic Warfare Caitlyn from League of Legends, and Mysterion from South Park. I went alone as Lilith Friday and hung out with my SAGA friends. Saturday I went matching Hunter in our League of Legends outfits (he was northern front Swain) and we were SO popular. Plus we found a ton of other League cosplayers which made it even more fun :) My gun was made in only a few days but I still think it turned out pretty good for a first time thing. Thanks to BlindSquirrelProps for the help in making it!! Sunday I went as Mysterion to match a couple other South Park super heroes/villains from my SAGA group. I loved seeing everyone in their awesome costumes and I can't wait for ComicCon San Diego where I know the cosplays will me amazing. Thanks for the help from all my family and friends to make this AZ a great one :)



 
Hunter is his Ghillie suit :3

More Plushies

Since I'm out of school and only have a part time job I've had a lot of time on my hands so I've been making stuff. Today I made a couple new plushies which I will be adding to my Etsy. It has not gotten a lot of traffic so I'm hoping if I add more stuff it will become more popular. I will adding more items this week I'm sure so  be sure to check back and spread the word about my shop! ^_^

Overlord Earings

I have been wanting to make some little clay figures for a while now but have not had time. I decided to start with something kind of easy today. I did not have any gloves so sadly they did not turn out as nice as they could have so these will be my practice set. I got the idea from a StarCraft commentator named Soe who is also a wonderful artist. I used Sculpey and jewelry findings to make the cute dangly legs ^_^. I hope to have more soon as well as in my Etsy for sale!

Purses

I have been looking for a new purse for a long time now. I'm not a big accessory girl. I buy a purse and use it till it falls apart basically. Since I was unable to find a purse I liked for a descent price I decided to make one. I enjoyed it so much that I made another one as well as a little zippered clutch to match it. I am going to make several more and put them on my Etsy(link to my shop) to try to make some college money. Enjoy ^_^

Happy Birthday to me!

 Thursday was my birthday! I spent it in Greenville with my SAGA friends. We went to Chico's Mexican restaurant and I made a cake. I'm not very proud of this cake but considering I only had time to work on it in between classes and only had an hour to put all the fondant and decorations on it I don't think it turned out that bad. The pipping just got kind of sloppy since I was rushing >.< But everyone still liked it and it tasted good which is, of course, what everyone really cares about! My friends threw me a great party with trick candles that almost burned my hands off lol. After dinner we played Mario Party on the Wii (since I don't play Wii I naturally sucked). Over all a great night, I am very blessed to have such good friends. The birthday fun continues tonight! I will post that later on :) Enjoy the pictures.

The Hunger Games Cake

My friend's birthday was this week and so we are celebrating it today! This year I made her a Hunger Games cake. I read the books over the summer and loved them. I'm not sure if I'll go see the movie though...The movies tend to ruin the books for me. Anyway, the cake is chocolate with vanilla buttercream and the mockingjay is fondant. I can't wait to give it to her tonight at her party. Happy Birthday Rachel! <3
