Another way you could make the hat atach to your head would be a hairclip if you have thicker hair 8D

Czarny wygląda świetnie :D Wydaje mi się, że na dole przy rondzie materiał trochę odchodzi i nie tworzy to idealnego koła. Tylko pewnie z tak maleńkimi rzeczami zawsze jest problem... Zastanawiam się, czy cieńszy materiał byłby wystarczający, czy też uzyskanie idealnego ronda wymagałoby mrówczej pracy przy maleńkich zakładeczkach od spodu. I przypomniało mi się, w jaki sposób można idealnie uformować tekturę (ponoć tak się robi na konserwacji, jak robią tekturowe pudełka na obiekty): tektura musi być lekko wilgotna i rozłożona idealnie na powierzchni o krzywiźnie, którą chce się uzyskać i tak ma pozostać do wyschnięcia. Tylko nie wiem jak to wyjdzie z taką cieniutką tekturką... ale może warto spróbować? A tak poza tym, to bardzo mi się kapelusze podobają... i już oczami wyobraźni widzę czym można je udekorować... Np. taką maleńką tarczą zegara @__@!

On jest brązowy ^^ Na monitorze taty też wyglądał na czarny. Niestety nie należy już do mnie, zrobiłam go dla noCki do mosinej kiecy, którą kiedyś uszyłam. Materiał na dole odchodzi, bo to jest ten efekt, o którym wspominałam w tutorialu. Duże fałdki tworzące teksturę od spodu, poza tym rondo jest też wygięte (dzięki temu właśnie, że było mokre od kleju) do góry, przez co wrażenie, że nie jest okrągłe.
Muszę jeszcze popracować nad techniką, ale póki co efekt jest zadowalający. W łatwy i szybki sposób mogę stworzyć szykowny dodatek do nawet najprostszej sukienki.
Ach... chciałabym robić takie steampunkowe kapelusiki i w ogóle kreacje, właśnie z tarczami zegarów, zębatkami, wskazówkami. Tylko nie mam pojęcia gdzie to dostać można.

Jedyny pomysł, co do zębatek i tarcz to połazić po komisach/lumpeksach i innych miejscach ze starociami (targ staroci?) i pokupować stare zegarki i je rozłożyć na części pierwsze :D.

Miałam taki plan, tylko czasu na jego egzekucję brak.

Thanks, I'm glad you think so :) I think Kumiho would look great in a top hat with some steampunk decorations.

They doesn't fit well with her dreads sadly, it looks odd. But Scops looks awesome in hats!

Indeed, I recall Scoops in black hat :) I've seen those dresses, girl from doa you mentioned, is her name on etsy monstrodesign?
Anyway you've had a terribly bad luck to order three dresses and none of them is good for your girls.

Yeah Scops does have that had i made from her, from an old tea things. And yeah it is the same girl, she is called blinkeke on DoA. And yeah i know she is being such a bitch towards me as well and has told me that i better not contact her again on DoA or on other sites.

And claimed that she offered for me to send them back more then once. But she said she would only issue the refund one she got the item back. Which would take 2 weeks from the time i would be able to send them.

Oh wow, she's really mean. But at least she had offered you refund. When I told her things she made for my Beatrix are too big (it was made to order and she claimed she had worked with RS dolls before) she said there's nothing she can do about it. Also she said it's because they're that cheap. Excuse me?

Well she only said that to me if i send them all back and pay for postage and she would then only issue when she got them back, so i would have lost out on postage twice. And would have been more out of pocket until she got them, at least.

Yeah she was never honest with me either, she said that she was very confident with RS doll too but when i told her then don't fit, she said well that is what you get when i work with dolls i do not own.

Did you leave her back feedback too?

Unfortunately I was a newbie back then and I didn't know I could do such thing as leaving feedback on DoA. Anyway I didn't have access to mp. I bought those things through etsy.
I wonder if she has more negative feedback from other people. I might drop in there later tonight.
