I put my awesome record fascinator with a birdcage veil on Etsy as a custom order. I’m not selling that particular one, but I’ll make one like it to someone’s specifications (whatever color veil they want/different types of flowers, etc.). I stopped by Carmine’s this afternoon and made John take some pictures of me in the veil that were halfway decent.
John thinks that we should go to Surplus Sid’s and get matching top hats for the wedding, and I should just add a veil to the top hat. I kind of like that idea too, honestly. And speaking of Surplus Sid’s, if you’re in the market for a homemade K-9 made from what appears to be part of a popcorn maker and the top of a litter box for $17, stop by Sid’s in Carrboro.
We also found a Dalek Sec hybrid mask. I have no idea how much that is, because it was up high and I already felt like I’d bothered the woman working there enough.
I’m on a bit of an upcycled vinyl kick recently, so I’m going to attempt to make a record purse sometime soon. I got the handles for it today, but I need John to fix my sewing machine so I can make a lining for it. I also have a design in mind for a TARDIS apron that I want to try once I start sewing again. I have a new DIY tutorial for my record desktop organizer that I’m going to post on Monday, so be on the lookout for that.
I was about to go yell at the cats for scratching on something, then I realized that sound was actually hail hitting the window! I guess they weren’t kidding about the tornado warning / severe thunderstorm watch. I guess this is a good stopping point for this somewhat disjointed post.
So many projects, so little time. It’s been another busy day for me. I went to Walmart, Michael’s, and the Habitat Restore to pick up some more supplies. Then I got down to the crafting.
I finished my Dalek cake toppers and listed them on Etsy. I think they’re pretty adorkable. I started painting another bride Dalek with a metallic white paint too, though it seems to be coming out more silver. I was thinking about getting some small wires and making a tiny paper flower bouquet for her instead of the single, large (compared to her) ribbon flower. If I stick with the ribbon flowers, perhaps I shouldn’t put the leaves on there though. What do you think?
For our wedding, we have larger Daleks, but we probably aren’t going to paint them. Of course, they’re 5″ tall and might not fit on the cake. We’ll see. Read the rest of this entry »
