Street Swagger Haman Karn Make up and Hair test shots.
For my eye make up I looked at ‘nebula’ and ‘space’ theme makeup photos to try and get a good idea. I started with Teal on the insides and around the bottom, blue in the center, and hot pink on the corners of my eyes, and then put a light dusting of ‘twilight’ a purpley-black shimmer over the top to bring it all down a little.
Hot pink lipstick and tons of mascara with severe blushing on the my cheek bones.
And then my hair was super volumized and curled, and then topped with a crown of spikes!
Don’t forget the shutter shades!
Street Swagger Haman Bling and Nails Construction post!
The Chain itself is made from Super sculpty. After I baked it I sprayed it with several layers of gold spray paint and a few layers of clear to seal it. I drilled the hole at the top for the jump ring too before I started to stone it.
I got about 6 different kinds of rhinestones at Hobby Lobby in white and red, in varying sizes. I applied them individually, it took a while to find the rhythm with the easiest way to get them on there but here’s the order of operations I used.
1. Spread tacky glue with a brush on a small section at a time.
2. Take and orange stick and dip the tip in a tiny amount of glue, blow on it to make it tacky.
3. Use the now sticky orange stick to pick up a rhinestone on the top and them carefully press it into the glue on the pendent. You have some time to slide it around and work it into just the right place, so it’s actually very forgiving.
(HINT: When your orange stick gets all gummed up on the tip, use a pencil sharpener to get a fresh tip!)
4. Once all my rhinestones where set, I painted the white stones with a black-light sensitive fingernail polish top coat and the red with a normal clear nail polish, before I sprayed about 5 layers of clear on the top. This top coat will ensure you never loose a rhinestone!
5. Put that bad boy on a chain, and get to banging on the radio!
The nails where a set of fakes that I painted a deep crimson. On the thumbs I did a rhinestone design and put many layers of clear on them (even so I still lost a rhinestone. Get crazy with the clear if you want to make sure they won’t come off). I used an actual Gundam Marker to put the lettering on the nail, i felt like it there was more an appropriate tool for this job! I sealed the nails with black light sensitive top coat too.
The Zeon earring is just a shrinky-dink I put on an earring hook! Easy Peasy!
One more day left…
I have one more night left to work before the Fashion show this weekend. I’m kind of freaking out, and all the same I’m feeling quite confident. The RSVPs on Facebook have spiked and we went from 70 to 120, and that just the people who have RSVP’d. And what with my new job, and having to go to bed and wake up like a ‘decent human being’, I thought I wouldn’t be able to get everything done. At this point I just need to put on lots of buttons, hem about a dozen bandanas and whip up two or three pageboy caps. I finished my own dress as well, so that’s a huge worry off my mind too. All I can do now tonight sleep, and prepare for one last whirlwind of work tomorrow night.
On the upside you can see the floor in my studio for the first time since I started working on this line.
I hope to see you Friday night @ Cheer up Charlies for Don’t Thread on Me!
One last sneak peak before the show, but shhhh don’t tell!
I had this bikini from last summer, I don’t really wear it because frankly, it’s uncomfortable. But I found this picture of Haman and knew what I had to do!
Took me about 2 hours to do this. I’m currently working on the bottoms (thing to digitize the logo so I can use my embroidery machine to put the insignia on)
NEW! NEW! NEW! Sieg Zeon Messenger bag.
Modeled after my Zeon handbag this Messenger bag is even better than the prototype. It’s loaded with pockets for all your stuff, and is vastly bigger on the inside than it looks! Everything is carefully and beautifully stitched professionally. Webbing Strap with metal hardware for long lasting wear.
Want it? This can be yours!
I’m asking 60.00+shipping for this first one. All other bag will be on a made to order basis and will start at 80 and go up. It takes me over ten hours to make one of these bags.
I will list this on my webshop shortly, but if you want it, PLEASE message me, and ill make a reserve listing just for you!
