But needless to say I accomplished nothing today! :-( Although I suppose I should feel good because Friday I got 9 items of Monster High clothing listed in my shop. I still have loads more to list though. I don't know if I'll get any in tomorrow, what with grocery shopping and all, but I'm going to try. If not I will start first thing Monday morning.
<-- This one here is of (Left to Right) Ghoulia, wearing a custom skirt with a Mattel made top. Cleo in the middle is wearing a custom denim mini and Mattel Made top. Nefera (seated in the back) wears a custom top and leggings. Lala wears a custom top and Bratz skirt.
I want to check out Lowe's or Home Depot to see if either place carries 24" peel n stick tiles. These are 18" and for most things work great. But since my photo set-up is 24" wide a nice solid tile would be awesome. My other thought would be to buy a pack of smaller tiles and adhere them in a pattern to a sheet of either matt board, cardboard or foam core. I think I'd also like to get some wood grained paper or shelf liner to do a simulated wood floor. as well.
Here is Lala modelling a full outfit by me. She wears a faux suede mini, a cute tulip print flair top and a bright red mesh shrug. This might just be one of my favorite outfits. :-) I wish I knew how to sew super thin knit material, as I love the way these bright green Mattel made tights look with this outfit. So instead I try to watch ebay for listings that include the tights. They can be expensive, but I've gotten some good deals. :-)
(Plus an awesome friend who sent me this pair as well as a couple of others! Mwah! =D)
Here we have my dragon twins. (who are still bald and awaiting rooting) One of these days I will get their hair ordered and get them finished!
Brinnande (with pink lips) is wearing Pink Pleasure, a mini dress I made from a fun print with shimmery silver accents. Her sister Kaitrus (with green lips) wears Glorious Green, a neat Grecian inspired dress, made from the coolest crinkled ribbon!
Next up is the adorable Abbey Bominable! I just adore this figure, and her character in the cartoon is fabulous too! She's a no nonsense kind of ghoul! She is wearing a pair of Bratz jeans, that I paired with a teal floral top I made from an upcycled little girls top I found on clearance and fabric given to me by my mom. The solid blue came from Mom and is really unique. It has the appearance of felt, but only on one side. The other side is really smooth. It's weird, but really cool!
Here are the GFF's (ghoul friends forever).All three ghouls are wearing Mattel made tops with my custom faux suede skirts in 3 different lengths.
I love this faux suede material a ton! It is perfect for clothing, but also works great for upholstery. I think I have it in red, olive green and purple. I need to pull some of the other colors out and make some more skirts and such!
Cleo's skirt is unembellished, but she wears a deep maroon strapless top I created. Lala's top is also made by me and is from a sample of 'velvet' drapery material
I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend. I'm off to bed now!
