Busy busy busy bee, it seems my weeks have been flying by! It’s already Wednesday yet I would have thought it was Tuesday. Hmmm… Lets see what have I been up to lately. Well it was thanksgiving weekend here in Canada land this past weekend and I got to enjoy some yummy turkey and pumpkin pie 😀 yes oh so good! also my first taste of halloween candy! Other then the family dinner i had a pretty chill weekend. My girl friend Sailor and her BF came over for a hot tub night on Friday then Saturday my girl friend Asia came over of ra movie and chill. It was just what I needed a relaxing weekend filled with not much other than just relaxing and feeling human again. The only other thing I did with my weekend is visit the craft sore and the dollar store to pick up some much needed arts and crafts supplies.
Halloween is just around the corner and I am super excited! lining up 2 fun costume filled nights of excitement for this girl. One at a killer halloween extravaganza at my friends house then the other a fun costume themed night out at a club. So excited!!! I am making my own this year too! I have been wanting to do this for years but really have had zero time and something else in mind so I keep putting it off. I am going to be an angel and TC is the devil hehehe 😛
Monday I worked on my halloween costume! so I am taking a bra and transforming it into a feathered bejewelled master piece. I’m taking a tutu and converting it to a sexy skirt then I am taking my wings making them smaller and adding a butt load of sparkles and rhinestones cause why the hell not right! here is some progress pics for you to spy on 😉 if your wanting to follow my progress follow me on instagram @thekatiebanks I’ll be posting pics whenever I’m working on my costume. I have 2 weeks to go and 2 full weekends so I am going to be doing a little here and there as I go.
As you can see from the photo above my first glue gun exploded! literally! there I am working away gluing the feathers to the top half of my bra and I put the glue gun down for a bit to plot my next placement when next thing I know there is a crackle and then a pop sound and literally the glue gun became engulfed by flames that went about a foot up! I jumped back and yelled for TC lol 😛 yes I did the girl thing whatever I was freaked frightened. He unplugged it and then it stopped. Good thing I wasn’t holding it cause that would have been 3 degree burns and probably skin graphs on part of my hand. The trigger was orange when I started. Freaked scary! for someone with somewhat high anxiety this was not a good even to happen. Good think I am safe and put down cardboard and kept anything I didn’t want possible wrecked away from the glue gun or I could have set the whole house on fire. Hell this was at my computer desk not more than a few inches from my screen.
SO it was out to the store to buy a new one, this time not from the dollar store lol 😛 I figured why not when i was there it was cheap had all the glue i needed and besides I’ve used a dollar store glue gun forever and a day. Yah not now! off to home depot I went and got myself a good one this time. To say I was jumpy for the rest of the day is an understatement. Who knew that arts and crafts could be so dangerous! I mean really. I have been doing them since I was itty bitty. I was a girl guide, a brownie and a scout. I did all sorts of costume design and such when in theatre too and I have never had anything like this happen before.
But it all worked out as you can see above here is the finished bra. You can’t quiet see but there is a butt load of glitter all over he cups of the bras too along with the rhinestones. I was going for a starts in the nights sky kinda look along the bottom half of the cups. I also applied a little bit of glitter to the feathers on the top so there will be a sparkles along my boobs too 😉 pictures lots of glitter and rhinestones 😀 hehehe you can never have enough! I might go back and add some more rhinestones I haven’t quiet decided yet. I want to get some more little ones and maybe some more bigs ones so it all depends on what I can find in that case. Next i move on to the wings and then the skirt. The wings will be a little complicated as I am taking existing wings trimming them smaller, attaching new feathers then adding glitter, rhinestones, pearls and more!
Can’t wait! I love a fun creative project especially when its girlie and cute too 😛 I hope your week is off to a good start! I have been on MyFreeCams 2 days this week and plan to get on tomorrow too! can’t wait 😀 missed you guys!
