Rainbow buttons slim belt. My Easter holiday craft project. I have these colorful buttons left over from other projects and it is so simple to sew them up into a rainbow belt.

Okay so I’m a big wannabe cartoonist and I usually hand-make these dumb little bookmarks as birthday presents for my friends and stuff. I draw them and laminate them and put them together so they look like they’re hanging on the page you’re on. Anyway, I met Chris Colfer at his book signing in Columbus today, and I drew one of him and one of his cat to give to him. He was SO EXCITED AND HE LOVED THEM AND THOUGHT THEY WERE SO CREATIVE AND HE CALLED ME SWEETIE AND I CRIED AND I AM JUST SUCH A HAPPY LITTLE ARTIST RIGHT NOW YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW
Edit - Now with a poorly-doodled version of said event! (Side note: there is no physical way to depict how bad I was shaking, absolutely none)

Chris’ printed shoes from his latest signing at The Grove immediately caught our eyes, and we soon found out they were actually made just for him by a fan! The very talented dontturnitoff kindly shared with Fashion of Glee how she made them.
The base shoes were simple black oxfords from Asos. Then, pages from Alison Weir’s history “The Princes in the Tower” (Chris being a history buff and all) were decoupaged onto the back half of the shoes. Finally, the laces were replaced with electric blue ones by Cole Haan.
After making a pair for her son, who loved them, she decided to make a pair for Chris, and presented them to him at his book signing in Manhattan. There’s a picture of the finished shoes at dontturnitoff’s blog, here! What a fantastic project!
Apart from your own special text, and an adhesive such as Mod Podge, here’s what you’ll need:

This has been a labor of love that started about two weeks ago. It is a handmade keychain of the 8 items needed for the wishing spell :). Naturally I took a few liberties for the sake of the keychain, but I tried to stay as faithful as possible, all the way down to a “stony crown” lol. I gave one of these to him at the Naperville, IL book signing.
Thanks go to my sister for her help in assembling and general brainstorming.
I had to do some touch-ups on this one since my mom accidentally broke the “T” when she was gesturing to me on why I had no friends (to which I replied, “I have plenty of friends mom, they’re just not real!”)
I also disliked the lighting on the old Kurt sculpture picture so I took another one, this time with a white background so you can see the details more or less. I’ll post some more up soon!
off topic, but I’m thinking of probably deleting my deviantart account in the future..but I’ll just see how things go
This is fantastic!
