Fantastical Friday: Nerdy DIY Thoughts

Fantastical Friday

In the course of fleshing out a character for a LARP expedition or prepping a cosplay idea for a convention it’s incredibly obvious that you or someone you are paying is going to have to produce the items you require. While I will not be doing a DIY today I am exploring some thoughts for LARP characters, as I roleplay far more frequently than I cosplay. I was wandering about on Panda Hall‘s site because I enjoy their wide variety of items more specifically meant for creating jewelry & other fantastical pieces. 😉 The second item in this listing will require a bit more effort should you choose to make jewelry or item embellishments (like for a bag, belt, etc) from them as they do not come with pre-drilled holes & are not readily in a setting (depending on your needs), but they still look like fun tokens for various enchantments or character history reminders. I’m especially fond of #3 as potions are so very handy for game play & they are nice & small to render them near at hand for use (like on a necklace, bracelet, hooked to a belt, etc). This particular site is also nice for their wholesale sets, so if your friends like what you did you can make them something similar too, or sell your concocted items to other enthusiasts. 😉

DIY Ideas1) Natural Crystal Pointed Pendants, with Platinum Tone Brass Wire ($1.96/2pc)
2) Arrow Head Dyed Natural Agate Cabochons, Mixed Color ($6.15/5pc)
3) Mini Cute Small Cork Stopper Glass Jar Glass Bottles, Decorative Storage Pendants ($10.19/200pc)
4) Stainless Steel Wing Pendants ($10.76/50pc)
5) Tibetan Style Alloy Pendants, Lead Free, Unicorn, Antique Silver ($15.37/about 650pc)
6) Dragon Alloy Acrylic Big Pendants, Antique Golden ($16.14/50pc)
7) Tibetan Style Pendant, Lead Free & Cadmium Free & Nickel Free, Oak Leaf, Antique Silver ($16.14/1,500pc)

Watermelon Wednesday: Macabre Like That

Watermelon Wednesday
So we all know (maybe not if you’re a first time reader) that I have an affinity for Halloween & all its symbolism. Which leads to how I stumbled across these Tibetan style beads while I was browsing the wares at Panda Hall. These lovelies appear to be smiling (a bit lewdly, lol) which I think adds something to their charm. I’m going to have to order a lot or two, though I haven’t yet decided how I’m going to use them, yet. They could easily be used to embellish one of my bags, or maybe to help set off a pendant…. I’m sure I will put them to great use after they arrive, but I will continue pondering their possibilities at any rate, lol. How would you use them?

Watermelon Wednesday: Yuletide

Watermelon Wednesday

The season is definitely upon us, it isn’t just Santa checking his list. The stores are overrun with shoppers & I find myself considering what to get for various special people in my life. In the meantime, I felt it was time to just distract myself with something related to the coming holiday that is not about gifting at all. Anyway, I’m sure we all know that PandaHall is a wholesaler, mostly of jewelry crafting supply items, though other project items are also available. So I found some cute little jingle bells that would make some great pieces for earrings, necklaces & even brooches. I hope everyone is enjoying the general bustle of this time of year. 😉

Fantastical Friday: Bet You Didn’t Know

Yup, it’s revelation time, you might find it surprising, or maybe not. I enjoy crochet, as well as other crafts, but crochet is more of a passion for me. I haven’t really had the time or supplies to do much with it in recent years, but there are so many projects I yearn to yarn (LOL). My old scarf is beginning to look a bit ratty & I would like to make a whole new series for the coming months, if I get a chance. It would also be nice to work with some of the higher quality yarns, that I have never actually worked with before. Of course there are the super fun projects I’ve been daydreaming about for a long time, like making a cute, cuddly, stuffed Cthulhu (you probably do know I’m a horror fan, by this point in our relationship, lol). Hopefully soonish I will be making an order to get some of the supplies I will be needed for the numerous projects I long to be working on in my not so copious free time. I have found a great place to find yarns of various qualities (though they do not seem to have crochet thread) & you might have noticed the small banner to the right (or maybe you’re viewing this on your phone, then I don’t know where it might be LOL) for Fabric.com. Here are a few of the lovely colors that I found during my recent window shopping (after the wedding I will have more available resources & can share some of the cool things I work on with you), I’m sure you will also notice that the last item on the list is much more expensive than any of the others (would love to make some winter accessories from that particular color & quality).

Unknown Passion1) Red Heart Yarn Classic 686 PAddy Green ($1.98)
2) Bernat Satin Yarn Sultana ($2.98)
3) Bernat Softee Chunky Yarn (28342) Teal Twists ($2.98)
4) Bernat Satin Sparkle Yarn Amethyst ($2.98)
5) Bernat Satin Sparkle Yarn Platinum ($2.98)

7) Red Heart Super Saver Yarn 0303 Painted Desert ($3.28)
8) Red Heart Super Saver Yarn 981 Fall ($3.28)

Fantastical Friday: DIY Jewelry Thoughts

Lately I have been feeling inspired to make some of my own jewelry pieces, unfortunately I can’t do too much with that at this time. Instead I’ve done a bit of window shopping for a few items I would like to eventually work with & this list is a bit random in that some of the items would not work well with each other, but the focus of this collection is more related to some current daydreams. As you will be able to tell as soon as you see the pictures all of these items were found at Panda Hall, which is a wholesale site, so you tend to get quantity with each order. 😉
