Hey guys! I’m starting university in the fall and I’m in need of more funds- I’ve applied for all the scholarships I can and I’m going to be working two jobs this summer but it still leaves unmet cost.
So, I will be selling prints of my artwork through society6. I have uploaded all of my senior AP Studio Art 2D concentration(pictured above), and will continue to upload more of my work as I scan it.
The artwork is not digital- they are high resolution scans of my actual works that are done in a variety of media- acrylic, watercolor, pen, collage- you name it. The availability of the sizes of prints depends on the resolution of the image, and the smaller works naturally don’t scan as large images, so the availability of larger print sizes is limited for some pieces.
Selling through society6 is slightly more expensive, but the quality is tenfold better than anything I could do with cheaper archival inks at home. As society6 states: “All art prints are gallery quality Giclée prints on natural white, matte, ultra smooth, 100%
cotton rag, acid and lignin free archival paper using Epson K3 archival
inks. Custom trimmed with appropriately sized borders for framing.“ This means you don’t have to worry about the image fading or yellowing in the sunlight.
I appreciate any and all purchases, and any reblogs. I’m going to try my hardest to be at least a slightly less poor college student.
This is my custom OOAK set of Queen Elsa & her King Consort Hans 1/6 Disney Store doll set.
I finally had a chance to create Hans’ Arendelle Naval uniform and updated Elsa’s Designer Ice Queen gown to be more accurate to the movie.
I added many AB (Aurora Borealis) baguette small gems to Elsa’s bodice so it would look more like a cascade of ice crystals rather than just a few scattered here and there. I also applied hundreds of 1mm AB gems at her waist/hips like in the film and also some scattered on her bodice, and all around her neckline in 3 tiers. I added more as well to her sleeves in her ‘fractal’ patterns and also lengthened her ice cape and applied hundreds more 1.5mm and 2mm crystal gems to the cape all over so it would glimmer in the light.
Hans’ uniform is entirely handmade with custom trim and tiny 1mm purple gems adorning it—his ‘medals’ and epaulettes and aiguillette were such fun to make! (Hans has been rebodied onto a Mattel Fashionista jointed male body for better accuracy to the character’s build.)
Both Hans and Elsa have been given new faceups, detailing and hairstyling. (Hans’s hair I painted in more reddish iridescent tones, rather than just browns.)
I hope you like them, too! I think I’m finally satisfied with them! What do you think?
“The very first time I saw you Harry, I recognised you immediately. Not by your scar, by your eyes. They’re your mother Lily’s. Oh yes, I knew her. Your mother was there for me at a time when no one else was. Not only was she a singularly gifted witch, she was also an uncommonly kind woman. She had a way of seeing the beauty in others, even, and perhaps most especially, when that person couldn’t see it in themselves. Your father, James, however, had a certain, shall we say, talent for trouble. A talent, rumour has it, he passed onto you. You’re more like them than you know, Harry. In time you’ll come to see just how much.”

Random progress pic. Been working many hours on the collar and faux vest pieces and decorations. Progress has been slow due to hand-sewing the appliqués; I originally thought I’d machine sew them, but the velvet on velvet was too slippery and they really needed hand-sewn. Added a lot more hours but I think it’s turning out great :) I’ve also been spending time on sewing snaps & closures at the front.
Next up is sleeve work & hem work. I already have the pleated cuffs created, as well as the velvet pieces that go on top, and appliqués sewn on them… but they need all the layers of trim, and the engageante lace - which I’m waiting to arrive in the mail. I’ll also be working on the trimmings that go on the hem of the bodice. I never realized how much trim is on this version until studying it closer!! Love it.
The silver/blue trim was custom made because we couldn’t find anything remotely similar to the original. It looks a lot cooler in real life, my phone camera doesn’t do it justice and makes the color look wonky. Blame my poor basement lighting!! There are three trims that go along the bodice hem and on the sleeves: a layer of the white trim (seen on the collar), layer of blue velvet ribbon (just arrived in the mail!), another layer of white, and then the intricate light blue looped-trim with tassels.
We couldn’t find anything similar to the tassel trim, so I’m going to custom-make that too. I’ll be dying white looped fringe home decor trim to the shade of blue I need, and sewing tiny tassels on. Taking a closer peek at some reference photos, I’m almost convinced that the real deal might also add tassels on to a more basic trim. I could be wrong, but it looks very custom to me!
More evidence of my theory is that some wishing gowns have the same, or similar looped trim, but different tassel arrangements…
A plainer arrangement
Because I can’t sew on the white & velvet trims until I stitch on the home decor trim, I have to wait until I dye the trim. (These trims need to cover the top of the looped fringe trim, which is about ¾" wide. You can see in the reference photos that you just sort of see the looped part). I just got some proper dye tonight so that’ll be my next step. The tassels can be sewn on at any point, so I don’t have to wait for those (they just got ordered today, so it’ll be a week or two before I get them).
And if you guys know me, I freaking love tassels; I am like a cat. Fascinated by them. And the mini ones are going to be so cute. It took a while to find them online! Only one seller had something remotely similar to what I needed. But anyhow, tassels make everything cooler. So I’m excited about that!
This spectacular Mustang, the “Bad Apple,” is fresh out of a painstaking, cost-no-object Pro-Touring build with over 2,400 man hours invested in the custom bodywork and outrageous PPG Money Green pearl paint alone. It is comprehensively upgraded and customized, turning the car into a jaw-dropping showpiece. It is powered by an all-aluminum, officially licensed Carroll Shelby 427 FE big block, pro-built by Jim Green’s Performance Center, built to 452cid. It is backed by a Tremec TKO-600 5-speed manual transmission driving an Eaton 9" rear end with 3.73 limited-slip. The chassis is fully framed and welded and features a custom Jim Meyer control arm front suspension and Morrison 4-bar rear, plus coilover shocks, 9" Wilwood brakes and bespoke 18" Rushford modular alloy wheels at all four corners. The custom bodywork includes raised floor/tunnel to accommodate racing style cross members and the custom driveshaft, smoothed front and rear aprons with tucked in and smoothed bumpers, re-imagined side scallops that now match the sharper angle of the rear wheel well, totally shaved trim, custom Shaker-style hood with a functional carbon fiber scoop, smoothed grille opening, hand-fabricated rear deck lid spoiler, painted stripes and more. This mustang fastback is truly one-of-a-kind.
