Weekend art shenanigans

Such interesting are these photos of art projects. /s This is how I spend my free time. So admirable and exciting, I know.

My not-so-stellar experience selling crocheted stuff

Disclaimer: This blog post is not meant to dissuade or discourage anyone out there who sells their crochet work or dreams of doing so. If you find your efforts are paying off, by all means, go make a killing!!  Hi. If you’ve spoken to me within that last couple of years, you’d know I’m very…

Orange Creamsicle Crochet Lolita Dress[Photo spread]

I just completed my latest lolita dress. I call it lolita because it’s the fashion type that I’m aiming for. Is it a perfect lolita? No, not by lolita standards(I’m not wearing bloomers. So scandalous!!!) Then again, what lolita makes their dresses out of yarn? None? Okay, I thought so as well. I’m being a…

The trend is on(crochet crop top)

I’m not a trend follower or anything. I am trying to make a quick buck to pay off loans(it’s available for sale in a local boutique, not online) Also, those leggings. They aren’t cutting it. Again, not a look I personally go for.  

Watermelon Theme Crochet Dress [Photo Spread]

A watermelon theme dress is something I’ve wanted in my wardrobe for a while. So in line with utilizing my stash to create things, I made a watermelon themed dress. It turned out lovely if I do say so myself! I made the hat ages ago. The hat needed a companion. Thus, the dress was…

[WIP]Crochet Lolita Dress+ Matching Doll~ Pt. 2

It’s always a perfect occasion to adorn yourself in yarn~ -MikuMarmalade Zephyr(the giant amigurumi doll) and I visited my family on my holiday break. I recently completed my red crochet Lolita inspired dress and was eager to wear it out! What do you do when you take photos in a dress with flair. You twirl…

Rainbow Knit Top

This is something I decided to knit at midnight Saturday morning at a friend’s house. Have you ever started a project and didn’t have a purpose for it at the beginning? Well that’s what happened with the purple bulky yarn and a set of circular needles. Then I thought I want a rainbow top. I…

WIP 〜🎵 Crochet Rainbow Skirt

June 14, 2017 MikuMarmalade is obsessed with crocheting Tutu skirts. Even her 3DS has been neglected. I totally have no regrets. Well, maybe just one. I went to the yarn aisle more times than planned and left with yarn. Oh well, I’m satisfied with the purchases. Here I am twirling around in my studio in…

Crochet Jumper Skirt

The crochet jumper skirt is completed!! This is my second super flared crochet jumper skirt with a tutu effect. My first is a my rabbit jumper skirt. I underestimated just how much yarn this project would consume. The skirt, especially towards the edges(multi-color blue), used  up 6 skeins of yarn(each skein is 364 yards). This…

Crochet Minty Outfit of the Day

  Her royal minty highness is here! She wants sushi! …She always wants sushi. This weekend was quite a good one, productivity wise. I completed the tutu suspender dress(I will publish photos later when I model it) made a new mint wig as seen above, and gave some much-needed attention to another dress I’m working…

Crochet Gladiator Sandals

So on the world of Pinterest there’s a popular crochet project(I think, what even is popular?) that involves taking a pair of flip flops and crocheting something over them. Look it up. Do eeeiiitt.   👀 So I figured after looking at an image of some finished flip flops I’d be able to freehand a…

Crochet Ariel Birthday Cosplay/Cosbound

So this is a story all about how my life got– oh wait. I decided to cosplay as Ariel on my 29th birthday. I am entirely convinced that I’m indeed a mermaid, well at least in swimming pools. Hurray for finding an exercise that is enjoyable that doesn’t feel like work. I had a few…

Crochet Pikachu Hoodie 

Greetings! Here’s to my Crochet Pikachu Hoodie! There’s no pattern in particular for the hood, tail, or. However, there is a shrug video tutorial that I used as a base which is useful for creating the bodice. Video is for shrug here. After creating the shrug I added onto the base. I made the hood, ears,…

Crochet Rosalina Cosplay 

I just realized on March 19th 2017 that the story of my Rosalina cosplay isn’t on my blog. I know. What am I doing with my life? Please note this blog post  is written two years after its creation. It’s not new, but my blog is kind of new. So work dated as far back…
