My girlfriend bought me a kitten for my birthday! He was just born and I'll get him in about a month. But he's gray with white paws.
He needs a name. I'm thinking Emmett. After Emmett Kelly, the famous sad hobo clown (his face is also white and gray).( Read more...Collapse )
If anyone has suggestions for names, I'd gladly consider them. BUT they have to be related to these things:
-the 60's (Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, etc.)
-old cartoons (80's-90's)
-old horror movies
:) I'M SO EXCITED!

|Someone stole my clown painting!
I had to do a painting for my Desgin in Mixed Media class. So I chose to do Cornelius, the creepy clown dummy from Dead Silence. The painting started out as a really detailed sketch with a bunch of small thin lines. I photocopied it to make it bigger and then painted the entire thing with a REALLY tiny fine paintbrush. (well, the bristles were tiny). It took THREE WEEKS. I turnd it in and got an A, but Mr. Reis loved it so much he put it on a stand on the front of his desk. A few days later it was gone (this was 2 weeks ago). Today I went up to ask about the upcoming projet, he explained it to me, an then told me that he had bad news.
"You remember that clown painting you did? Well, I had it on dsplay here on my desk. But one of my students from a different class stole it. For the first time in 15 years, something has been stolen from my class. I didn't know how to tell you..."
I'm sad, I was going to frame it and put it with my clown collection! But, I'm a little happy that someone loved it so much they'd want to keep it. I really hope they enjoy it. (I'm not being sarcastic, I really do. It was a lovely painting)
I hope I wrote my name on it in Sharpie instead of pencil.

|Ich bin traurig!
(That translates to 'I'm Sad')
Unfortunately, nobody was interested in my trade, which really suprised me. It was such a huge deal.
I feel so sad right now. I really want to make a fursuit to by myself some stuff, but unfortunately I have too many suits to do this month. I have 3 head commissions and 3 partial commissions. I can handle that. BUT my dad wants me to sew his 4 bodysuits, 4 pairs of handpaws, and 4 tails all in this week and my mom wants me to make and sell 3 full fursuits for her for summer money in the next 2 months.
SO, now I have 3 head commisions, 3 partial commisions, 3 full suits, and 4 bodysuits.
And no chance of getting this:A WWII German Armband- For my collection. Not to wear. I'm not a Nazi. XD
;_; I feel so used.
...Sure nobody wants to buy that for me in exchange for a head or a partial depending on the reserve price? I'll make you anything.
Sorry for being greedy. D:

|Fursuit Partial for $60-70? Nearly $200 off!
Ok, since my current commissions are going faster than I thought, I've decided to give another person a chance to get a really discounted partial fursuit. No catches, tricks or anything. There's a few things I want on ebay, and they end in a day. I don't have the money to buy them myself. But they add up all in all (shipping/insurance to my house included) to around $60 depending on if they get more bids (I won't make you pay more than $80 for this stuff though, if one thing goes up too high I'll find a substitute).
Here's how it works: You buy me the items, when you win tell me, and while you're in the process of paying and it's being shipped from the seller directly to my house, we can talk about the suit that you want (nothing super crazy or anything), and then I will start on your suit when I recieve the items.
Behind the LJ cut are the things I want.( Read more...Collapse )

I have a question for all of you. I want to create/build my own ventriloquist doll, but I am unsure what I should make the head out of. It needs to be something sturdy and that will hold up. I'd like to carve the head out of clay and then cast it with something. But I don't know what material the dummy's actual head should be made out of.
Does anyone have any suggestions?

|Gene Simmons' Destroyer Boots!
I'd like to recreate Gene Simmons' Destroyer Boots. I'd like to recreate them out of airbrushed leather. Although I have some questions about the construction process of these.
-How will I be able to connect each individual leather peice to form the long part of the boot?
-Is leather strong enough to stand up on it's own, or will the boots need some type of support?
-What should I use to form the dragon faces at the base of the boots. I was thinking foam with leather formed over it. Will that hold up, or should I use something else?

|For those of you able to make clothing...
I have a deal for you.
I don't know how much it would cost to get a coat made, but I'm willing to trade you a custom-made full fursuit($450 value) in exchange for three custom-made coats. The first coat is a navy blue and red cut-away coat with a stiff stand-up collar. It's double-breasted and has a cut up the back. The second coat is another cut-away coat with a stand-up collar. It's got a single button line going down the center of the coat, the edges of the middle of the coat is lined with red. It has a cut up the back,and the 'tails' are lined with red. And then the last coat is a black overcoat with a normal arrow-collar. It has a removable tiny cape on the back and a little across the shoulders. It's double breasted with a cut up the back. All three coats have a few buttons lining the cut on the back. I do indeed have pictures of all three of these coats. Anthony Perkins's character Inspector Javert in the 70's version of Les Miserables wears all three of these coats. :)http://s141.photobucket.com/albums/r73/mr_tumnus_album/Inspector%20Javert/

|Finally selling my Hellhound head!
My Hellhound head, Artemis is finally up for sale. He is by far the best head I've ever made, and the best in quality as well. I love him dearly, but sadly I have to sell him to pay my phone bill and pay back my neighbor for buying me sexy faux fur boots. *shifts eyes* You didn't hear that last part...
Anyway, he's up on ebay for $50, no reserve. He's a very nice head, please take a look.http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=330044578676

|Does anyone want a Furby?
I need to get rid of this thing. I payed $40 for it, offering it for $10. I need new clothes x.x....
Description from my auction~
Up for bid is a brand new 2005 Interactive Furby toy, never taken out of the box. I need to get rid of it because it's taking up too much space. The original price was $40. It's all white with a lavender tummy and purple/orange (or pink, I can't really tell.) hair. This thing is really cool! It actually responds to you if you talk to it. It comes with a spon so you can 'feed' it, and it's mouth isn't made out of hard plastic like the old ones (So you don't have to worry about getting pinched!), it's made out of soft rubber. The furby runs on a few AA batteries (included, I believe.). He/she dances, sings, burps, tells jokes, and is really fun. And it comes with an instruction manual/language book so you know what Furby is saying (and it will also understand you if you speak Furbish to it!). Kids love these things, and the new ones actually have an off switch so you don't have to WAIT for it to fall asleep!http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=330032883243 Current Mood: creative

Yo, I just got a new Verizon Wireless camera phone. It kicks ass. I went through hundreds of ringtones and none of the ringtone thingys have the ringtone i'm looking for. Does anyone know of any website I can buy individual ringtones off of and download them straight to my cell? I'm looking for a ringtone of 'Green Tambourine' by the Lemon Pipers (my favorite song =3). Or Disco Duck if I can't find Green Tambourine. If anyone can help me out, I would truly appreciate that. Current Mood: Eew...I have school.

|Steve Irwin's Unfortunate Death
Nooo, Steve Irwin died! This is seriously like the worst thing that's ever happened to me ever. Steve irwin was my idol, I watched the Crocodile Hunter and Croc Files every night. When I heard on the news last night, I was up nearly half the night crying.
Well, at least Steve died doing what he liked. He was filming in the Batt Reef, doing a part for the show "Ocean's Deadliest", but he got too close to a stingray, and it's stinger went through his chest and put a hole through his heart...the barb was stuck in and he died from cardiac arrest.
It's just so hard to believe he's gone...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Irwin#Death Current Mood: crushed

|Lookin' for brightly colored fur!
I have a commission for a brightly colored alien! I'm looking for any brightly colored fur! I have $65 to spend on fur, but the prices on Distinctive Fabric, along with their minimal order is too much for me. Just give me a picture of the fur you have along with a price, and I'll tell you if it's something I can use or not. I'm especially looking for purple, orange, red, and green. And if anyone has some of that awesome 2 toned bubble fur from Distinctive Fabric, I'd love to get some of that for him (Unfortunately, it's too expensive on the site, and I don't need two yards. More like 1/2).

|What Fursuit Should I Make For Halloween?
Okay, it turns out I won't be able to afford the werewolf suit I wanted to do for Halloween, so I'm trying to come up with some other ideas for fursuits I can make. Behind the cut are some that I've thought of so far, I need your help choosing which one I should make!( Read more...Collapse )
I'd love to hear everyone's opinions on this. (And I mean everyone
. XD) Or, if anyone has some more suggestions, I'd be glad to hear them! Current Mood: creative

I'm having a bit of trouble with my fursona's design. Specifically with the color of her face. Whenever I imagine her, she has a brown face, but when I draw her, her face matches the color of her ears. I'm not sure which looks better, so I'm going to let all of you decide!
