Tamagotchi Decoden and Updates

Well we’re back from IMATS/ABBW and it was a hell of a trip! As it turned out the hotel didn’t have internet access so I couldn’t update other than through the mobile blog sorry! Typically my Twitter app was broken too so I could see messages but it threw errors when I tried to reply >_< Technical and traveling drama aside I’m so glad to be home!! I got some awesome footage, great photos and had a wonderful time so I’m editing them all now to post.

In the mean time while I work, enjoy some photos of the Tamagotchi I deco’d 😀 Hurrah for reliving your childhood! I’ve got lots of plans for this now it’s completed but for now here’s how I changed a red one into a pink and purple one ^_^

Rainbow Decoden Thread Cutter

Another deco project where the pictures speak for themselves! I knit and crochet a fair bit and even though we must have at least 10+ pairs of scissors in our house I can never find them at the right moment so I usually resort to trying to break the yarn to avoid having to get up XD Bad Violet! Last week my Mum saw me doing this and came home with a thread cutter hahaha!

Of course I had the same problem with not being able to find it when I needed it. So I decided to deco it in the most obnoxiously bright way I could think of: rainbow and cake. The end result doesn’t remotely go together well but I couldn’t care less as long as I can find the damn thing! the cake was added as it’s a piece I’ll probably never use and here it provides function as a grippy thing.

See deco can be functional sometimes too!

So onwards to the pictures…

Polly Pocket Necklace Decoden

This post is devoted entirely to Sirena Sparklestar, without whom I wouldn’t have rediscovered my love of my old toys or combined it with my love of sparkles. Do check out her blog, it’s full of very pretty crafts and beauty things!

Polly Pocket Deco

The story behind this tutorial is that I was desperately searching through my box of old toys for something and I came across my old Polly Pockets, I used to have a massive collection of them as a kid but over the years they all gradually disappeared other than the first one I ever got: a little star locket and a rose locket. I still love it after all of these years and as a fitting way to make it a little more my current style I decided to deco it.

Decoden Princess Mirror

And here’s another random decorating junk post. My new video set up requires a little swiveling mirror so I can see what I’m doing, cue trip to Tokuya for a cheap but adorable one 😀

Decoden iPad Stylus Project

Deco project time 😀 For my birthday my Dad bought me a stylus for my iPad so I could use it for illustration work. You’ve already seen some of the drawings I’ve done with it but here’s the project I did with the stylus itself.

Deco iPad Stylus Tutorial

The stylus looks like a really fat, blunt, aluminium pencil which is pretty cute but I wanted to personalise it a bit more. I settled on adding charms to the top, a dangle and some diamantes fading from that.

I then used epoxy to glue it in place to the very top of the stylus. It’s a little pink lucky poop I got somewhere in Japan. It had an irritating bell inside which I glued in place too.

Once that was completely dry I made 3 rows of diamantes underneath it.

Then to create a fading pattern I continued down in rows leaving a gap every now and then. The further I went the more gaps I left. This is a nice alternative to a straight finish.

Last I added some dangly charm to the hook at the top and it was finished! Very simple project but it makes a big difference to the end product. And with poop guarding it, no one will ever steal my damn pens again!!! Hahaha!

Now if only I could work out a way to make it self heating >_< Because it’s aluminium to work with the screen it’s freezing to use in Winter *_* At the moment I have been heating it up on the back of my laptop before using hahaha!

Blinged Diamante Decoden Lipstick Palette

Long time no post huh? Things have been a bit quiet here lately, it’s been one of those weeks where everything seems to be piling on >_< I’ve had the flu so feeling fairly un-energetic during a week that was very high paced for work. All of that means no energy left over for blogging which really sucks 🙁 I should be back up to posting every day next week again though and I’ve almost finished setting up my gallery and some other things which I’ve been planning for a long time so please look forward to that!

Back to it, one thing I did manage to do this week was deco my purse lip colour pack. I bought the container from Daiso several weeks ago and filled it up with lip colours that I use regularly.
