wha wha?!

Another New York Comic-Con has passed, and this year I decided to go as Morgana from League of Legends. My friend went as Kayle :)

I made my wings using the instructions from this lovely site: http://jiajem.com/tutorials/wings/ and instead of using real feathers I used foam instead.

The rest of the costume was handmade except the hat and the oven mitts. I was able to cobble all this together 2 weeks before the convention (which meant no sleep lol). Please excuse the horrible makeup on my face :P

If you are wondering, yes, those are paper plates disguised as wings that are on my friend’s back. She was super creative in making her costume and it turned out amazing! Her armor is made out of foam and paper mache.

Another crochet tote for the summer! I love making these if you can’t tell :P

I wanted to make a little bunny to go with the baby blanket I made. I used cotton yarns and this amazing pattern from LuvlyGurumi :)

I made a small baby blanket for a friend of mine who will have baby boy in a couple of months. It was super fun and easy and I really loved how it turned out! It’s about 32x32 inches.

Lion Brand Yarns has a wonderful pattern for this project. I used their Wool-Ease Thick & Quick Navy yarn and Marble yarn. I also used Loops&Threads Cozy Wool yarn in the colors Stone and Seastorm.

I decided to try and make a couple of useful totes in-between my afghan square project. I have plenty of yarn I needed to get rid of, and I found this awesome tote pattern on Lion’s Brand Yarn site (http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/L10485.html)

First tote was made from Vanna White’s Glamour Yarns, and second tote was made with Loops & Threads Impeccable Yarns :)

This is my first ever crochet block! My friend’s Girl Scout troop needs about 12 crochet/knit squares, and I wanted to help out. I decided to use Red Heart pink, red and white yarn. Pattern provided by SmoothFox on Ravelry :)

Made this for my friend’s upcoming birthday. She loves Bioshock, so I thought this gift would be appropriate :)

I decided to make the Undertow Vigor because it looked challenging and fun. I started with a glass bottle purchased at a local craft store and painted it blue. From there, I molded polymer clay on the bottle and baked the entire thing. I painted the octopus initially with acrylic silver paint, than created an ‘antique’ look with a darker silver. Then I drew the octopus symbol with marker and painted it. Finally (after I sculpted the cork topper as well) I covered it all in paint varnish to seal the colors. 

Materials used: FolkArt Acrylic Metallic Silver, True Blue, Sunflower and Black paints, Sculpey III white clay, Copic Black sketch marker, and a square-shaped glass bottle.
