Pajarita (bow tie) de 1900.

Lo que mas me gusta de la ropa femenina de 1900 son los toques masculinos que puedes introducir en ella a través de complementos como las pajaritas.

                              + Xcm (messure around neck) + 2 o 3cm  

Estas son las medidas que he usado para hacer una pajarita de un tamaño grande. Solo queda añadir la tira recta que abraza el cuello. Esta tiene que ser de larga como la medida de alrededor de tu cuello mas 2 o 3 cm para que quede un poco holgada. 

De forma que al anudarla (tutorial; how to tie a bow tie) queda así:


made my first little video tutorial - how to tie Alucard’s bow tie thing… was actually a bit more complicated than I thought and figured someone else out there might find it useful so they don’t have to struggle like I did. ~Amy OtterCat

sorry about the bad pun (except I’m not sorry… not sorry at all)

Braided Top Knot

This week’s hairstyle combines many of I’m Hair For You’s hairstyles into one amazing bun.  Using a combination of a regular braid, a regular twist, a fishtail, a 4 strand fishtail, and a box braid, you can create this braided top knot.  Instead of including all of the instructions for each braid along the way, I have linked previous tutorials in each step.  You can also use a different combination of braids and twists in this look - it’s totally up to you!


1) Brush

2) Large Hair Tie

3) 5 Small Hair Ties

4) Bobby Pins


1) Start by brushing your hair into a ponytail where you would like your bun to be located.

2) Take one fifth of your hair and begin twisting it.

3) Tie off with a small hair elastic.

4) Take another fifth of your hair and create a regular braid.

5) Tie off with another small hair tie.

6) Next, section off another fifth of your hair and begin a fishtail braid.  Click here for a full fishtail tutorial.

7) Tie off with a third small hair tie.

8) Taking another fifth of your hair, start a 4 strand fishtail braid.  Click here for my recent 4 strand tutorial.

9) Tie off with another small hair elastic.

10) Take the rest of your hair and begin a box braid.  Click here for a DIY box braid tutorial.

11) Tie off with your final small hair tie.

12) Take one of your five completed sections and begin wrapping it around your ponytail.

13) Bobby pin into place.

14) Repeat steps 12 and 13 with the rest of your sections and finish with hairspray.

A few days ago, I hit 500 followers, and I had you guys vote on what you’d like to see me make! It was a close tie between this manip tutorial and a FC directory, and while that’s still in the works for the future, this is something I’ve been wanting to post for a while. I’m excited to show you guys the deep dark secrets of gif manip making.

These are the gifs I’m starting with:

And here’s what I’m ending with:

note: for the sake of this tutorial, I am using two gifs that I made myself, but I often just find ones to use from gif hunts.

Instructions under the cut!

Hi! Do you have any cheap DIYs that I can make en masse as friend gifts?

Cheap DIY Gifts for Friends! 

This got me thinking about my own gift list and I did a little bit of digging. These are my top cheap DIY gifts for friends! Hope you enjoy.

DIY Elastic Hair Ties

Just need some fold over elastic (you can get some online or at a local fabric shop) and pieces of cardboard and voilà! 

Handy dandy stylish and snag free ponytail holders!

DIY Dish Soap Silly Putty

Using just dish soap and cornstarch, you can make some silly putty for your friends! Who doesn’t want a fun stress reliever? Use some food colouring to add some more fun, but the creamy snow white look is just as appealing. Package it in some tiny plastic tubs or glass jars. Go nuts!

DIY Dino iPhone Tripod

Get some plastic dinosaurs, caulking, and suction cups. Make sure to make it about 4-5 days in advance! The caulking will need some time to dry.

After, you can leave the dinos as is or paint them with gold, glitter, polka dots, anything.

DIY Baking Soda Christmas Ornaments

Doesn’t necessarily have to be for Christmas! Use your cookie cutters or use a small knife to cut your own images. After baking, you can paint them to further customize them.

Tie dye nail art inspired by these nails I did a while back. I had a LOT of trouble doing those nails the first time and in my attempts I arrived at a pretty different series of steps that for me, made it a bit easier. I hope the same can be true for you with this tutorial!

1. Paint the nail with a white base.
2. Using your pink polish, make a swirl across the nail. You do not need to use a lot of polish or ensure full coverage with the polish. These first few steps (2-4) are for the purpose of mapping out where the colors will go. This helps make sure that all of the colored swirls fit on the nail and prevents a lot of struggles later on.
3. Behind the pink swirl, make an orange one up against it. Again, this doesn’t need to use a lot of polish.
4. Repeat steps 2-3 with the rest of your colors until all are used and all of the nail is filled.
5. Take your green polish (or whatever color is second to closest to the bottom edge) and cover the green swirl with a lot of polish. You will really want to glob it on here so you can drag it later (but not TOO much or else it will be a mess!). Note: for the remaining steps, you will not want to wait for each coat to dry! This works better when working swiftly so the colors don’t have time to dry up.
6-7. Using a needle, drag the green polish outwards to make the spikes. I sometimes added a bit of the polish to the tip of my needle to make this motion work better and to fill in some of the color gaps that will be created. 
8. Repeat steps 5-7 with your yellow polish. You will want to make these next lines in the same place as the green ones so they fit into each other.
9. Repeat with orange polish.
10. Repeat with pink polish. 
11. Repeat with blue polish.
12. Paint a layer of clear coat. Doing this will not only seal in your great work, but will also make some of your polish smudge into any gaps you may have created when doing the needle dragging. You can always go back and fill in those gaps with their respective colors if it is a big issue.

If you are looking for an easier alternative that still gets you that fun tie dye look, you can do steps 1-5 after painting straight lines with your polish. The result will look something like these.

I hope this tutorial was helpful and I can’t wait to see all of your nails!

this post was getting a lot of notes so i thought i’d make a tutorial! i really hope this is helpful, i’ve never made a tutorial before (especially not for drawing!!) please don’t remove the credit! god i hope you can read my handwriting, i did this kind of quickly so it’s definitely not perfect (i left a hole above the tie in the last picture on accident..)

and please don’t hesitate to shoot me an ask if you’ve got a question or comment!
