    • Torrid House of Dreams Fashion Show

      9 years ago

      RosaSpinaque

      I finally got some of the runway shots of my dress from the fashion show, and Torrid put a video up on youtube! My dress is at about 2:08 or so. Check it out! They still haven't fixed my last name on the website or at the dress auction, and they still haven't posted the bio they had us do for them though...
      This show was so much fun and it was good to finally get some something in return for all the hard work! I spent way too many hours making distressed chiffon rosettes and leather roses for that collar. Seriously. But it all payed off when I got to see it coming down the runway! And it still makes me happy to think about how my dress was the finale piece on the runway for the entire show! smiley0.gifsmiley12.gifsmiley13.gif

      *On Thursday at work I met this guy-
      jesse-spencer.jpg
      and apparently Gerard Butler was there too, but much to my extreme dissappointment I didn't see him. He probably left while I was in the room we give our surveys in hard at work... :(

      *I turn 21 tomorrow! XD I am celebrating by going to Disneyland, as I have never ever been to eithor Disney, and have lived in SoCal for over two years now, so figured it is about time, and that going for free on my birthday is as good a chance as any! I am so excited. I am turning 21 but shall spend the day running around Disney like I am 5. ;)

      *There was a third thing, but I can't recall what I was going to tell you all at the moment...It'll come to me right after I log out I bet! lol Anyway, I hope you all have a lovely weekend! smiley12.gif

      I missed the internet terribly while I was away...lets hope there are no problems with the new computer now! I will fill you all in on my over break happenings soon, but I am off to bed, so I will just leave you with a link to the auction for the dress I made for Torrid. The fashion show was awesome (more on that later) Anyway, the dresses are being auctioned off with the proceeds going to Breast Cancer research. They did get my last name wrong (not quite sure how that happened as they do have the right one from me...) and there is only one photo up and it doesn't really show details, but I'll post some other photos when I get a chance and maybe a few making of/progress shots as well. It is a black silk charmuse dress with a chiffon 'confetti print' over dress and the collar is covered in distressed chiffon rosettes and also leather roses (all hand made by me, which was veeery time consuming!) Anyway, check it out! Dress Auction smiley12.gif

      Well, my computer died, so until I get another one I will veeery rarely be on here. :( But hopefully I get a new one soon!!! I am off to my fashion show tonight, leaving from my friends house in a few minutes. Other than that I am unpacking and setting up my new place. :) Talk to you all later! smiley12.gif

    • Life update thingy and stuff...

      How come car trouble comes at the most inconvenient times to have to pay for it?!? But in good news, I signed the lease on my new apartment! smiley0.gif Some of you may remember issues that I have had with my current living situation-issues that never got better no matter what I did. But I'm packing my stuff and moving, and soon will be in a new studio apartment all by myself! smiley12.gif Yays! I am glad that finals are over and I can start sleeping again, at least for the next 2ish weeks that is. Hopefully-I do have over break hw to do... I finally got word that the Torrid fashion show is happening that I made that dress for. It is taking place next Thursday, and sounds like it is going to be a big deal with good publicity and stuff-so hopefully all that hard work will finally pay off! :) Hope this finds you all healthy and happy! smiley12.gif

    • I met Ezio today.

      10 years ago

      RosaSpinaque

      For reals. And I totally fan-girled out with one of my fellow classmates. So, in my Theatre Drawing and Rendering class, we at times have live models come in for figure drawing. These past two weeks we were supposed to be doing male figure drawing, but the model we were supposed to have double booked, so they sent us two different replacement models. Today's model looked kind of familiar for some reason...during our break in the middle of class some of us were looking through his portfolio of work he brought in. He had a number of magazine ads and the like, and then, half way through the book there was this picture of Ezio. Turns out he is the model for Ezio-for all the game stuff/figures etc! I thought it was pretty neat, and that other girl and I were all excited about it! He started telling me about being the model for Ezio, but then the teacher called us back to session. Too bad because I would have liked to hear more about it. For the second half of class in my head I kept thinking-haha, I'm drawing EZIO!! Although they don't really look like him because they are contour drawings and quick figure sketches...I looked for a photo of the model, and can't find one for some reason, but if I run across one I'll make sure to post it... smiley0.gif

    • What makes the all-nighters worth it?

      Stuff like this! One of the classes I have this quarter is Costume Crafts I, which this quarter deals with textile design etc. We have been learning all about dying and printing and making different textiles. I knew that costume design/construction often involves custom textile work, but I didn’t really realize just how much fabric in movies, television, and theatre is custom work. For example, I am sure some of you have seen most of these movies/shows! ;)

      Well, my teacher for this class was the textile designer/artist (and sometimes worked on construction as well) on all of those movies and shows, and I am sure a number more. Every week in class it seems like she shows us an example of something she has done that it turns out it is from some big movie or show. She is seriously so cool. These fabrics that she shows us are amazing, and learning the techniques to make them is even better! XD For example, in both of these costumes all of the fabric for them is custom textile work that she did.

      It is awesome to know how to do stuff like this! We just do little samples of these techniques to learn/demonstrate them in class, but I can't wait to try them out on actual costumes!!! And when I do, I will make sure to share them with you all! smiley0.gif

      and the rest of my 43 sewing samples for the sewing sample notebook I have due on Monday. I get to be up late hand pleating, hand sewing, and figuring out what the heck some of my notes/directions mean among other things... ^^; At least I smiley12.gif my little sewing machine-we have been through a lot together! :) Here's to hoping all your Saturday nights are eithor productive, fun, or relaxing! smiley0.gif

    • What did I do today you ask?

      10 years ago

      RosaSpinaque

      Well, quick, before I stay up all night watercoloring, printing fabric, and other such homework, I'll share a little of it with you! :D So, in my historical costume class we have been making historical undergarments. We are all doing different periods, but myself and another girl are making Victorian era items. Today we worked on fitting the corset. The historical pattern is shown in one size, so the first step is to pattern it out, then you alter it using your measurements so it is closer to your size, then, since it is a corset and needs to fit like a glove-tighter actually! ;) you have a partner help you fit it to your body while you wear it.
      IMG_4382.jpg
      When it is all finished the corset won't crease like that when I turn as it will be taken in more and have tons more boning put in it! In the picture I also have on a bustle support as well, but that is a sample my teacher made-mine is still under construction, but we needed to take some measurements for the petticoat with the bustle on...I already made the chemise (which I am also wearing) and drawers, am currently working on the corset and the bustle support, and still have to make the petticoat. :) Then next quarter we will all make dresses to go over our undergarments. Yayness!

      You know that fairy tale the Shoemaker and the Elves? Well I need that, but with tiny little elf seamstresses/tailors. Two of the homework items due tomorrow are an 1800s chemise, and a pair of 1800s drawers. I was seam ripping a seam on the drawers because the thread tension was a little off on it, well seam tearing really. I was going too fast in an effort to finish them sooner so I can start on other homework, and I tore them! smiley7.gif Ack! I now have to re cut and sew the entire pair of drawers! Once again that should teach me that slow and steady really is faster than rushing. What are the chances of me not finishing them, going to sleep at a decent hour tonight, waking up in the morning and finding them finished? lol
