Surprise! It may not be summer anymore, however, I figured I would post this tutorial in the spirit of Halloween. I picked up these knarly pineapple decorations from a thrift store. They’re made of a rubbery material and are more suited for home decor, but I couldn’t help myself. Initially I was going to have a two-pineapple headband, almost like wearing cat-ears or puff balls. However, it was too overwhelming, even for me, so I decided to make two separate headbands.
But we’re past that now. It’s time to evolve. Now, I must give credit where credit is due – except I have no idea where credit is due! Who started the embellished tights trend? I know there’s plenty of etsy sellers with stunning, over-the-top embellished tights. Lirika Matoshi, in particular, is well-known for their embellished tights. However, we won’t be doing anything that fancy today. No, my goal is much simpler and much more focused: we must create googly eye tights.
GOOGLY EYE TIGHTS: A NON-TUTORIAL
If you clicked on this thinking it would be anything more than me telling you to stick some googly eyes of a pair of fishnets, I’m sorry to disappoint you. That’s exactly what I did.
TIP: USE A PIECE OF CARDBOARD, DON’T be lazy like me and use a left-over amazon mailer.
Also, I’d recommend something like E-6000 Glue. However, I used this “Shoe Goo” because in my delirium, I thought it was my E-600 glue. Turns out I don’t have any E-6000. Shoe Goo worked anyway.
Yes it’s true, she didn’t have the most glamorous upbringing. It was a random summer day (was it summer? I can’t remember) and my friends and I, bored out of or suburbian minds, wandered into a Micheal’s craft store. As soon as we meandered into the kids section I knew what I had to do. A couple dollars, some glue, and a few minutes later I gave birth to the ultimate creation. BEHOLD: THE GOOGLY EYE MASK.
Remember when people like Jenna Marbles and MadeYewLook were sticking googly eyes all over their bodies? I was inspired (no, I was bored) and I created this little googly eye mask. Of course, I didn’t have a blog to share it with! Hopefully this post won’t be too passe for you, but I love this little mask! Cheapest and easiest thing I’ve ever made. And maybe she’s not the most high-brow woman at the masquerade, but she’s still my lady.
Here’s the real question I have for you: what should I do with this? Future Halloween costume component? Rob some banks? Don’t worry, they won’t know it’s me. I’ll be wearing a mask.
Tell me, has anyone else completed little spur-of-the-moment, or even planned projects, only to realize that you’ve now accumulated one more piece of clutter? I love to create things for the purpose of creating! I don’t think about what I’m going to do after I’m done. Please help a blogger out here.
