Apparently, I haven’t made enough Star Wars-themed crafts already. And of course I really had to modify another piece of IKEA furniture, to display my Star Wars merchandise in a proper way. So I painted the inside of an older showcase with a galaxy background. Conitnue reading to see the showcase and my favorite pieces of merchandise. 🙂
About a year ago, I made this warm and comfy Ewok-inspired scoodie (scarf-hoodie), but I have just now come around to take some pictures with it. However, the timing is perfect, because I feel fall is just around the corner, and what better time is there, to build some traps against stormtroopers? Maybe you should make your own scoodie (it’s easy, trust me), so we can all celebrate Yub Nub together? 😉
Now that you know how to paint monochromatic motifs on your shirt, as I have explained in my last tutorial, it’s time we step it up a notch. Today I want to show you, how to apply images that need more than one color.
So if you want to know how I made this Dr. Living Dead T-Shirt for my boyfriend, using multiple layers of fabric paint, you should continue reading. 🙂
Are you dissatisfied with the choice of shirts of your favourite band? Are you female and sad, because most artists cater their clothing towards men? Is your taste in music so insanely obscure (and therefore trve), that your favourite band doesn’t even sell merchandise? Or did you ever think “why the hell isn’t this on a T-shirt?”?
Do not fear, because I am about to share some magic with you, that can solve all of these problems and make your textile dreams come true! Aka: How to use fabric paint 101. 😉
Usually, I am not the most creative person when it comes to gift wrapping. But for this present, I decided to go all out. Amongst some other things I wanted to give a copy of the Walking Dead compendium, so I used TWD as inspiration for the whole gift box. I’m really proud how it turned out, so if you are interested to surprise some fellow zombie-lovers, please go ahead and read more 🙂
These are definitely the droids I’m looking for! This is not a still from the Star Wars movies, but a picture I took from my totally awesome bookend. It is not only useful to support my Batman comics, but it looks so very pretty as well. It is made from wood, with a typical picture of the Tatooine skyline with its two suns in the back, a ground covered in sand and action figures of C3PO and R2D2. And not only because I adore R2D2 to obnoxious extents, this is probably my favourite gift I have ever received, but because it is all handmade. See for yourselves how great it has turned out! 🙂
One of the most loved and cute furry creatures ever animated is Totoro from the movie “My Neighbour Totoro”. His cuddly appearance and gigantic grin have made him the trademark of Studio Ghibli and the being I would love to live next door to the most. Unfortunately, I have not discovered any black furballs lately, and none of the buses I use happens to be a cat. So I had to think of something else, and came up with the idea of making him my new roommate. In form of a wall decal, that is.
I used grey adhesive foil I had left over from my Jedi Dressing Table and a picture of Totoro sitting on a branch as a template. Feel free to continue reading, if you want to know how the wall decal looks like in my entrance area.
Awhile back I bought a black IKEA-Gustav desk, so I had a place to store my makeup and hair products. I’ve been doing experiments on my appearance, using this desk, for a few years. But a few months ago, I wasn’t too happy with the heavy dark color of the desk anymore. So I decided to paint it white, which went surprisingly well. In addition to that I wanted to apply some Star Wars themed decor. So I chose to cut out the logo of the Jedi Order out of gray adhesive foil. As well as the famous quote “Do or do not. There is no try.” which is one of my all-time favorites. I am more than happy with the result, so please feel free to check it out for yourselves:
“In brightest day, in blackest night; no evil shall escape my sight.
Let those who worship evil’s might; beware my power, Green Lantern’s light”
Since my boyfriend is a huge fan of Green Lantern and he wanted to add some color to his living room, we grabbed some paint rollers and brushes and turned one of his walls green. Except for one huge circle in the middle where we drew the Green Lantern logo. I absolutely love how it turned out, so if you have a boring white wall you want to change, here is some inspiration:
