Society6 Product Review – Leggings

I purchased this pair of leggings from Society6 a little while ago and after wearing them several times and washing them I thought I’d write up a little review for those of you who are wondering what they’re like.

I have to say I absolutely LOVE these leggings.

They are stretchy and comfortable and the fabric is really soft and silky to the touch.  The thick band around the top is sturdy and helps prevent muffin top.

Also the print, my White and Navy Blue Elephant Pattern, looks GORGEOUS, and much better and much brighter in person than the preview images on their website.

See the contrast between the preview photos and the one of me wearing them?  They look so different!  The brighter colour is actually much closer to my original image.

These leggings are great for working out and doing yoga but also just for lounging around the house and being comfortable.

Here is the product description from Society6’s website:

Nobody will judge you for wearing them all day, every day – they’re that comfy. That’s because these tights are constructed with breathable, antimicrobial polyester spandex that keeps you dry while staying cool.

  • Constructed with antimicrobial polyester spandex
  • Breathable, moisture-wicking qualities
  • Six panel cut and sew construction
  • Adjustable waistline

So in summary, if you’re on the fence about picking up some leggings from Society6 I say GO FOR IT!  You won’t regret it.

Have you ever bought leggings from Society6 or another POD website?  Let me know your experience in the comments below!

Cheers,

Turquoise Deer Head Galaxy Art Print and Gifts

Turquoise deer head galaxy art print

A new design!  Following along the same vein of my previous works I’ve created a few of these deer’s head prints using my galaxy images and a cut out of a deers head!

I have it on products in my Society6 store for now, but not yet on Zazzle (only due to laziness).  It does look pretty cool on some of their products, mainly clothing:
Turquoise deer head galaxy tank top

Turquoise deer head galaxy mens hoodie

And right now you can get FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE in my store by using this link! (Ends Feb 9, 2015)

Anyway, I hope you are enjoying these latest works, as much as I am having fun making them!

However, I do promise to post some more of my doodle artwork very soon.  I have submitted a few pieces to various art journals and publications so I am waiting to hear back from them before I share them online… I should know by the end of this month if any of my works were chosen to feature.  Wish me luck 🙂

It’s a long weekend here in Vancouver, so I am having a nice, relaxing time and probably will work on some new artwork.  I hope you are all having a great weekend too!

Cheers,

Julie

New Year, New Goals, and some New T-Shirts!

Happy New Year everyone!

Check out my new t-shirts from Zazzle!  The black one I ordered for myself and the other two were meant to be Christmas presents for my parents but I guess they are more like New Years gifts now.

That’s ok though, I am pretty happy with how they turned out!  I also got them all for 50% off so I can’t complain too much.

Here is a terrible selfie of myself wearing my new shirt:

Since it is a brand new year (can you believe is 2015!?) I would like to discuss some of my artistic goals for the coming year:

1. Create more art

2. Blog more about said art and other projects/interests

3. Work on my blog writing skills

4. Grow my online store and also open up shops on other sites like Society6 and CafePress

5. Refine my website

Hopefully the above goals will help me to grow my audience and connect with potential customers, as well as just share my art and my vision with more people in general!

What are your artistic or online related goals for the coming year?

If you enjoy my work please visit my website, store, or follow me on Facebook or Instagram!

Have a great weekend,

Couples Costume DIY – Fry and Leela

fry and leela DIY halloween couples costume

Yay it’s October!  I love the fall leaves and the crisp air.. and most of all, Halloween!

This was my boyfriend and I’s “Fry and Leela” couples costumes last year.  We wore them to a party and got tons of comments!

If you don’t know Fry and Leela they are characters from the Matt Groening TV show Futurama.  This is a super cute and fun couples costume especially if you are a fan of the show like we are.

Fry

Fry’s outfit was the easiest, my bf just went out and found a red jacket at a thrift store and used some orange hair colouring spray to do his hair.

Make sure you use that stuff in a well ventilated area and wear old clothes because it will stain!

He paired that with some blue jeans, a white t-shirt and sneakers and was all set.

Leela

This outfit was a bit more complicated due to the whole cyclops thing.

Also, her hair is usually worn in a ponytail but the only purple wig I could find was straight, so I winged it and said I was “party Leela”, when she lets her hair down. Besides, I liked the way it looked on me.

The clothing for the costume is just some black leggings and a plain white tank top paired with black boots.

She also has an arm gadget that you can’t see in the photo because it was on the other arm but I just used cardboard wrapped with duct-tape, then taped on some black paper circles for the “buttons” and whatnot.

A quick Google search for “Leela’s Arm Gadget” will give you an idea of what it looks like.

Now for the eye:

I used some old sunglasses and popped the lenses out.  You could pick up some cheap frames from the Dollar store if you don’t have any laying around.

Then I made an eye shape out of pipe cleaners.

I used some fabric called Tulle (found from a craft or fabric store) and cut that into the same eye shape, which I then actually hand sewed to the backside of the pipe cleaner circle using white thread.  I found glue didn’t work very well, but I didn’t use a glue gun so that may work better.

I used a black self-adhesive felt sheet (which can be found at any craft store like Michaels) for the iris and lashes which stuck on pretty well.

I then tied the whole thing to the sunglasses frames with some string, and it’s all done!

The props included a Dollar store water gun for Leela, and then we just printed off the Planet Express logo (from google) and taped it on all 4 sides of a small box for Fry.

We also made Slurm can beer cozies which were made out of cardboard with the Slurm logo taped on there!

I hope these instructions were easy enough to follow, and inspires someone for their costume this year!

Enjoy,

~Julie
