Ohai, Eljay. I am not dead! I just... haven't posted in forever. I really need to remember that I have a livejournal, haha, for more than just craft posts.

THAT BEING SAID, here's a craft post! It's my 2010 craft roundup. Herein lies all the crap I made last year. It's a pretty meager list compared to 2009, but I owe that partially to the fact that I stopped doing swaps because I'm poor.

Cut for your convienience because there are kiiiind of a lot of pictures :/ )

SAD AND PATHETIC. I didn't even get to fifty this year :< And 2011 is even worse because I have been floppy like a wet noodle so far. January is almost over and I have only made one thing! Granted, it was a pretty big thing AND my sewing machine is dead (CRIES CRIES FOREVER) but still. I need to get in gear. Somebody give me that iron-pumping plurk emote!

Here's the big one, my master list of dolls. I will be keeping it up to date with any new dolls I make.

All these dolls were constructed by me and the patterns are mine unless otherwise noted.

My complete list of finished customized teddy bears - called Furlings by some - is in here. I will be keeping it updated with each one I do. The bears are all store bought, but all the clothing and accessories were made by me, from patterns to execution, except where I could supplement Build-a-Bear items for things that are harder to construct like glasses and shoes.

All the little bears in uniform? )

Yaaay, the post no one but me has been waiting for, a full catalog of what I did in the last year, with pictures! Because I would rather procrastinate than make things. Honestly, I don’t know how I made this many things in one year with my extremely un-industrious personality.

Holy Exploded Sewing machine, Batman! )


Well, that was intense. And that was a list that didn't include some of the teeny things I made, like the small legions of bookmarks I designed on photoshop, and some single polyclay things that didn't have sets. Clearly, I have no life outside my craft supplies and sewing machine. (PS – it really did explode! But it’s better now). I am productive, though, which makes me happy.

It is already December 3rd and the PANIC is SETTING IN. It is CRAFTAPALOOZA in my house right now, a slightly neurotic and anxiety-attacky flurry of fabrics and threads and yarns as I attempt to make something for everyone. I've made good progress (since I started like a month ago), and intellectually I know I'll be fine and I'll get everything done, but I have this guttural terror of not getting everything done.

But lately I have made some cool things, if I do say so myself.

a narwhal!? )

Link, he come to town . . .  )

Mini Master! )

Whooo Scaaaarf! )

Manga bag, featuring Hayate! )

Whoo, I've been busy. Yup. I've made more stuff than that but I can't share it yet :3




In other news, if I here ONE MORE WORD ABOUT TIGER WOODS I AM GOING TO LOSE MY SHIT AND GO HULK-SMASH ON NANCY GRACE AND THE WHOLE OF THE MASS MEDIA WHO CONTINUE TO HARP ON THIS SITUATION WHEN ACTUAL NEWS IS OUT THERE HAPPENING. HIS POSSIBLE MISTRESS HAD A LARGER PART OF THE FRONT PAGE OF THE NEW YORK POST THAN THE GODDAMN PRESIDENT TALKING ABOUT THE GODDAMN WAR IN IRAQ YOU FUCKING IDIOTS AKFALKSDGHQIUAF;KHLA;LKFHAEBRLGJDFK.NHBHL.

Yay, more plushies! I actually made these two a little while ago for some swaps on craftster, and am just now getting around to posting them here on my lj.

First, Chakotay from Star Trek: Voyager

Chakotay this way! )
And next, Jen the gelfling from the Jim Henson movie Dark Crystal.

Yes, I have not forgotten my vow to make a ragdoll of each of the ten Doctors from Doctor Who, and here is the second installment, Nine.

Nine! )

Two down, eight to go. And I am having so much fun!

L is here!

Record time! I had this guy finished on Monday evening, and made his second outfit and other accouterments yesterday. So all in all, he was totally finished within 36 hours of starting him, pretty much. Yeah, I'm a freak. I would have posted him yesterday, only the dlink was working like crap.

this way for L )

He's made of broadcloth (as usual, I loves my broadcloth), his dress is actual satin (a pain in my ass, but pretty), his hair is made of black corriedale wool, his shirt is muslin (so it's a bit difficult to pull on him, even with his narrow little hips), the cake is made of felt and broadcloth, and the plate and fork are made of sculpey. Yaay!
calypsa: (Doctor Who)
Fiiiiinally, my Ten Doll is done! I've been working on him since July, and he's finally finished.


Here he is! )

The only thing I didn't make are the little converse (they are adorable, though). His pocketwatch and sonic screwdriver are made out of sculpey (with a little bit of a keychain for the watch chain). The rest is fabric - felts and broadcloths and suiting and a bit of polyester.

And, as for upcoming projects . . .

I could be insane . . . )
calypsa: (So I read.)
I fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinally finished Anna Karenina. I've been reading that damn thing since the backend of September. BLOODY HELL is it long. And not just because its like 800 pages - that alone is of no real concern. The thing is that there are like five hundred unrelated storylines in it and I was expecting them to sort of come together in the end, but they didn't. Anna herself is not even MENTIONED in the last fifty pages. I found the ending to be weirdly off topic.

Whatever, I'm glad I read it. Freaking Russians are crazy, though. They must be on permanent brainfreeze or something.


Anyway, here are the fun pictures of the stuff I made for Chels' birthday.

The Tardis and the DreamLord )

Blast it. Now I am having very bad thoughts about making an L doll with a second outfit (aside from his regular white shirt and jeans). And it shall be empire-waisted and blue because we all know that, with his complexion, gold would would wash him right out.

x-posted a few little places

Okay, after like a year of letting his disembodied head sit around in my craft box, I finally finished my Jack O'Neill doll the other day.

pikchures! )

He goes with Sam and Daniel and Teal'c dolls that I've made.
calypsa: (puppy)
In the continuing tribute to stuff I make, here is yet another edition of Dolls I made, except this time, you are gonna see two dolls I made for other people. With the exception of Daniel, all the dolls you've seen here were made for me, but these two I made for Carl and Chelsea respectively.

The god of language has a forked tongue . . . go figure )

Number One, engage! Make it so, and all that French*cough*British*cough* rot )

Yay, dolls! I think my next attempt (after I hopefully and one day finish poor disembodied Jack O'Neill) will be some mythical creatures. A griffin is first on my list, thanks to the loooovely animation in Narnia. Pretties. :)
calypsa: (Default)
As a sequel to my Sam and Daniel, which can be found here , I made a Teal'c doll.

Teal'c Pics behind cut, just for fun )

Yay, more dollies! These are my two Stargate dolls. The bespecktacled boy is Danny (Dr Daniel Jackson) and the blondie girl is Sammie (Major Samantha Carter). Here are some pics of them in their pjs!

 

 

Because there are lots of pictures, and I want to compare the doll to the actual person

 

here is an lj cut )

so nobody gets annoyed at a super long, graphiccy post.

calypsa: (Default)

Okay, I've wanted to do this for a while. I finally have some pictures of my Egyptian God dolls. And since the pictures are really big, I put them behind the cut. They're super-cool.

 

 Bow down before your goddess! )

 

Okay, there are more pic posts forthcoming because I want to post Sam and Daniel, as well as the pic of me with brown hair, but since Krista is heckling me, I'd better go for now.
