pixelimia
Hello, beautiful LiveJournalers! I wish to invite you to a special trip into the realm of MsPaint comics. For those of you who have seen them before, they vary from wacky to beautiful, to downright nasty. pixelimia is basically the first and last and seldomly the second, however, sometimes time is spent to make it look good in certain aspects.

Please be warned that pixelimia does contain one or more of the following:

lewdness
predjudice humor
nudity
violence

Do read the info before posting an angry reply. Any angry replies will be ignored and any angry replies within the journal will be ignored, deleted, banned, and possibly made fun of in a comic.

Although not a community and not a friend, there is hardly anywhere popular for promoting an online comic and therefore, pixelimia has opted to post in this and several other communities.

If, by any chance, this goes against any sort of rules or regulations, simply delete the post and pixelimia will simply go on about its business and apologize refusely if left a message.

With that said, go read [Bad username in LJ tag]!

here's an update on the fabric i've dragged upstairs *smile*

i just brought up s'more, but since they're plaids and seersucker prints -- i didnt think anyone would want them for skirts, though the thought occurs to me, SOMEONE might want them for interesting bloomers. i'll get some pictures to post later.



Since it's close to faire, i am offering them here first. i have several pieces (different colors) of lighter weight cotton that i am going to make skirts out of or even bloomers if that is what someone is looking for.

as i mentioned before, the skirts are long, gored there's 4 yards or so in each one, the seams are frenched (enclosed) and the hems are HUMUNGOUS, the nice thing is that they arent very full over the hips. keep in mind, the larger your waist is, the larger the hem will be. i make the enclosed elastic waist band separate to further cut down on bulk around the waist. - ALTHOUGH i can put in a draw string if you would rather be more authentic)

email me @ ladyofshallott@dancingspider.com if you're interested.

i am charging $25 for the bloomers and $35 for the skirts (as i mentioned before) i am in the process of making them, so if you are interested, please email me with your waist size, and i can make sure to size them accordingly. the length will be 42" unless otherwise requested. Shortening already constructed skirts is available for an additional $10. i use USPS priority to ship, with a tracking number. the cost for this is $3.75 -- for example 1 skirt $35 + $3.75 = $38.75. if hemming the skirt is included, the cost would be $48.75.

i send you the tracking number once it's sent out, so you can follow it on the USPS site.

What i have available:

i have a dusky kind of blue cotton 1 skirt worth left

sea green linen 1 skirt worth (any size) this one is going into construction next....

raisen brown 3 skirts worth (any size)

medium lavendar 1 skirt worth (any size)

kind of a heathered brown/orange maybe not heathered, but the weave is really interesting. enough for 1 small/medium skirt - or bloomers

periwinkle linen 1 small/medium skirt worth

grey linen 1 small skirt worth

darker medium lavendar 1 small/medium skirt - or bloomers

red and white pin stripe kind of like what they make men's shirt out of? i think it would be fun for a pirate type skirt (to wear another over top of) or bloomers. i have enough to make 1 skirt (any size)- or 1 pair of bloomers. <img src="http://www.dancingspider.com/images/red white stripe.jpg</a> </lj-cut> thanks in advance!

i'm cleaning out my fabric 'collection' downstairs. Since i am getting my Embroidery Machine, and i also have rent to pay here shortly (when it rains it pours right?) -- i've decided stuff has to go.

Since it's close to faire, i thought i'd offer it here first. i have several pieces (different colors) of lighter weight cotton that i am going to make skirts out of or even bloomers if that is what someone is looking for.

i dont know about chemises - it's all colored stuff, so unless you want a colored chemise (or pirate shirt) i was thinking just skirts and bloomers.

the skirts are long, gored there's 4 yards or so in each one, the seams are frenched (enclosed) and the hems are HUMUNGOUS, the nice thing is that they arent very full over the hips.

the average length i make them is 42". i can cut them shorter if someone would prefer a shorter skirt. i make the waist band separate (with elastic-it doesnt cut into the waist like a draw string - ALTHOUGH i can put in a draw string if you would rather be more authentic) to further cut down on bulk around the waist.

email me @ ladyofshallott@dancingspider.com if you're interested.

*wave* here i am AGAIN...here's a bodice i also made a year or so ago that i'd like to sell, it's never been worn and will fit a size 12-14. i have it on a size 8-10 dress form in the picture

the pictures dont do the fabric justice, i've tried several times to get my camera to take a good picture of it, but i have yet to get it right.

the red in the rose is such a vibrant red, it's hard to describe.

I wanna see!!!Collapse )

ok, these arent great pictures, but they're ok....click here to see!Collapse )
it is a deep red burnt out SILK velvet over a red moire. it hooks down the front, the buttons are for show.

the sleeves are slit on the outside.

if you have any other questions about it, please contact me at ladyofshallott@dancingspider.com.

i'm offering it here before i hit ebay with it.i've had this for a while, and i'm cleaning things out as i am organizing my space.

if i shouldnt show this here, please let me know, and i apologize in advance if i am incorrect in doing so.

thanks !

Once upon a time,

~~~~~~~~

in a land far away,

~~~~~~~~

a beautiful, independent,

~~~~~~~~

self-assured princess,

~~~~~~~~

happened upon a frog as she sat,

~~~~~~~~

contemplating ecological issues

~~~~~~~

on the shores of an unpolluted pond

~~~~~~~~

in a verdant meadow near her castle.

~~~~~~~~

The frog hopped into the princess' lap

~~~~~~~~

and said: Elegant Lady,

~~~~~~~~

I was once a handsome prince,

~~~~~~~~

until an evil witch cast a spell upon me.

~~~~~~~~

One kiss from you, however,

~~~~~~~~

and I will turn back

~~~~~~~~

into the dapper, young prince that I am

~~~~~~~~

and then, my sweet, we can marry

~~~~~~~~

and setup housekeeping in your castle

~~~~~~~~
!

with my mother,

~~~~~~~~

where you can prepare my meals,

~~~~~~~~

clean my clothes, bear my children,

~~~~~~~~

and forever

~~~~~~~~

feel grateful and happy doing so.

~~~~~~~~

That night,

~~~~~~~~

as the princess dined sumptuously

~~~~~~~~

on a repast of lightly sautéed frog legs

~~~~~~~~

seasoned in a white wine

~~~~~~~

and onion cream sauce,

~~~~~~~~

she chuckled and thought to herself:

~~~~~~~~

I don't think so.

Yes!!
S.S. OFFICER
I will take the book now.
INDY/HENRY
(simultaneously)
What book?
S.S. OFFICER
(to INDY)
You have the Diary in your pocket.
HENRY laughs genuinely, believing himself to be laughing at the expense of the
S.S. OFFICER.
HENRY
You doltl Do you think that my son would be that stupid that he would bring my Diary all the way back here?
At which point an awful thought strikes HENRY.
HENRY
You didn't, did you? You didn't bring it, did you?
INDY
Well, uh...
HENRY
You did!!
INDY
Look, can we discuss this later?
HENRY
I should have mailed it to the
Marx Brothers.
INDY
(overlapping)
Will you take it easy....!
HENRY
Take it easy?! Why do you think I sent it home in the first place? (points towards the NAZIS)So it wouldn't fall into their hands!!
INDY
I came here to save you.
HENRY
Oh yeah? And who's gonna come to save you, Junior??

INDY's eyes blazes His nostrils flares He's so pissed off, he literally RIPS A
MACHINE GUN from the hands of one of the startled soldiers... and for a moment
we think he's going to use it on his dad.
INDY
I told you--
He turns and sprays the room with machine gun fire, cutting all three NAZIS to
ribbons and blowing them backwards across the room.
INDY
--don't call me Junior!
HENRY looks shocked and horrified.
HENRY
Look what you did!!

[ mood | frustrated ]

My prom is Saturday night and I'm trying to get my hair situation together. I have fairly short hair, down about an inch from my ear and layered like Amélie's (from the film Le Fabuleaux Destin d'Amélie Poulain). I want a 1920s style, though, for the night. My dress is an actual dress from the 1920s that I found at a store downtown, my shoes are 1920s, my jewelry is 1920s...etc, so I want my hair to match. Can any of you tell me a site that has perhaps a list of 1920s hairstyles or how to create wavy 1920s looks? I have found plenty of pictures, but no instructions. And whenever I try, it doesn't turn out right. Even the chick who does my hair can't get it the way I want. I know exactly what I want, I just need some direction. If anyone could help me out, I'd appreciate it muchly. You can email me (aglaeagrace@hotmail.com), leave a comment in my journal or just leave a comment here. Thanks in advance!!

MARTHA STEWART vs. REAL WOMEN

Martha's Way: Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of a sugar cone to prevent ice cream drips.
The Real Women's Way: Just suck the ice cream out of the bottom of the cone, for Pete's sake. You are probably lying on the couch, with your feet up, eating it anyway.

Martha's Way: To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the potatoes.
The Real Women's Way: Buy Hungry Jack mashed potato mix and keep it in the pantry for up to a year.

Martha's Way: When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking pan, use a bit of the dry cake mix instead and there won't be any white mess on the outside of the cake.
The Real Women's Way: Go to the bakery. They'll even decorate it for you.

Martha's Way: If you accidentally over salt a dish while it's still cooking, drop in a peeled potato and it will absorb the excess salt for an instant "fix me up."
The Real Women's Way: If you over salt a dish while you are cooking, that's too damn bad. Please recite with me the Real Women's motto: I made it and you will eat it and I don't care how bad it tastes.

Martha's Way: Wrap celery in aluminum foil when putting in the refrigerator and it will keep for weeks.
The Real Women's Way: Celery? If it doesn't have calories, why keep it?

Martha's Way: Brush some beaten egg white over pie crust before baking to yield a beautiful glossy finish.
The Real Women's Way: The Mrs. Smith frozen pie directions do not include brushing egg whites over the crust and so don't do it.

Martha's Way: Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half and rub it on your forehead. The throbbing will go away.
The Real Women's Way: Take a lime, cut it in quarters and rub it on the rim of a tall glass. Put lime in glass, fill with gin and tonic water and sip until the throbbing goes away (repeat as required).

Martha's Way: If you have a problem opening jars: Try using latex dishwashing gloves. They give a non-slip grip that makes opening jars easy.
The Real Women's Way: Go ask the cute neighbor to do it.

and finally.......

Martha's Way: Don't throw out all that leftover wine. Freeze into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces.
The Real Women's Way: ........Leftover wine?


*grin*
yeah. that's us.

kind of oddball that this should be my first post here? Some of it is true. I think. [20 Apr 2002|08:23am]

serizawa3000
This just in on IMDB...

Bizarre actor Billy Bob Thornton wants the world population of the endangered komodo dragon to be killed off. Thornton is petrified of the reptiles, one of which crushed the foot of Sharon Stone's husband Phil Bronstein last year. Billy Bob says, "More than anything on this earth, more than any being that exists, they are the creature that represents evil. If it were up to me, I'd just go to that island and kill them all. I would just shoot those sons of bitches." The actor says he once had a dream the creatures infested his house and woke up his wife Angelina Jolie, insisting they go to a hotel because his dream was so real.

Yeah... evil somehow epitomized in the earth-colored, scale-armored body of a lizard that could measure up to nine feet long, weighing up to 140 pounds (more if it's eaten recently)...

Varanus komodoensis... ora... buaja darat... biawak raksasa...

able to scavenge if necessary, but also a deadly hunter... curved, serrated teeth... saliva laden with 50 strains of bacteria... if the prey doesn't bleed to death, the infection could kill it within a week...

they have been known to kill people in the wild... on the few islands where they are found... they have even been known to dig fresh corpses out of graves...

superiority of humans my ass...

Typhoid and swans... it all comes from the same place...

[ mood | drained ]

I am really into tarot,positive and negative energies,acupuncture,enlightenment,healing,candle magick,chakras and spirituality...


The tarot reading I did today contained this card:


XVIII -The Moon

Astrological Correspondence: Pisces

Keywords: Intuition, Imagination, the Subconscious, Illusion, Tradition, Fear

Description: The Moon in all its phases represents the world of dreams, illusions, and the subconscious. Traditionally the symbol of the feminine, the card's meaning encompasses the maternal, the Great Mother, womanhood, and cycles. The Moon is an ambivalent card, its imagery signifies the difficulty to see things clearly: inspiring and lacking courage, enchanting and bewildering, deceptive and receptive - all sides of the same coin. Signaling fluctuating moods and uncertainty we must pay attention to our dreams, confront our subconscious and deal with the issues that come to the surface in order to progress to a higher level of awareness. Being able to put our imagination and creative talents to good use is an added bonus. Negative qualities, such as ambiguity, confusion, hidden fears, deception, can be a cause for failure.
