Since I haven't updated with Crap I Made in a while, here are a few things.
Mostly, I've made things for Seiji:

First off, trousers. They're UFO-ish style pink leopard print (because I <3 the obnoxious neon leopard print-I want more green and some of whateve other colours might exist so I can make more of these) and have pockets all over and elastic in the waist. They were a pain to make (the pockets, o god, the pockets! x.x) but totally worth it.

Next, a shirt. I saw a few people with pony bead tops and decided Seiji needed one. I want to make him a normal t-shirt, but I don't have the right fabric at the moment. (I want a white ringer tee with either Rainbow Brite or a My Little Pony on it, just because he's the kind of guy who'd absolutely love either one.) The beading on this was such a PITA I completely abandoned it for weeks before picking it up and forcing myself to finish. It turned out pretty well, though.

I also made him a belt out of the same neon rainbow mini pony beads. (Thanks again for the buckles and other stuff, Kuroiaisu! <3 I've finally got around to using most of it.) This was made with a different stitch, which is...actually, I'm not really sure what it's called. You take your thread, put the first row of beads on, then put the second row of beads on one end of the same strand and draw the other end through that row (so that you have one end of the thread hanging out of each end of row 2), thread row 3 onto one of the ends, thread the other end through so that, again, one end of the thread is hanging out each end, then repeat X number of times until finished. (I want to say loom, but I'm thinking that's not right. Any help on WTF it's called?)

Overall shot of him in his neon-insanity glory. I keep saying that it looks like Rainbow Brite's closet threw up on him. (You might think this stuff is ridiculous, but you haven't yet seen it with the glittery yellow vest or blue belly shirt he stole from my MSD girl. AND I haven't even started the neon rainbow fluffies or coat. XD)

Other stuff:

I can't remember if I've posted this before, but I made a better respirator. It actually looks like a proper respirator now and is sized a bit better.

The gas mask you've all seen before, but it's still kind of a WIP. I decided that I wanted to use this one for my boys for now and will worry about casting later, so I added straps to it. (If I cast this one, I can just pop all the rivets off and peel off the lining-it's on with glue that isn't too hard to remove.) It's not done yet (still need to find something for lens holders and to cut out the mesh for the filter), but it's looking...not too bad. I'm pleased with how the straps turned out, anyway.

Also, Ian got a new faceup, which turned out kind of legitimately creepy.:

I spray-painted his head and neck white, by the way (ZOMG NOOOOOO! XD), because blushing was never, ever going to get me a good solid white base. It took 3-4 tries and some acetone (I was kind of terrified of using it, but it worked out fine) to get a good enough finish to work with.

Woah everything looks awesome. Especially that gas mask.

I think that shirt should definitely be a Rainbow Brite one. Just because.

And that beaded shirt. So crazy o.o

I love how insanely colorful he is. And I want to see this glittery yellow vest.

I'm loving that new face up on Ian.

Thanks! It'll be even better once I manage to get it finished.

YESSS! With pink trim. Or maybe red.

Yeah. o.o So not doing that again. It's awesome, but it looks like it would be so f'ing uncomfortable to wear.

Hee, thanks! I had to have someone to counteract all of the dark, srs bsns goth boys and punks. Here you go, dunno if you can see the sparklyness very well (it's a little hard to photograph), but here's the vest:

<3 Thank you! So am I. I think the black sclera eyes work really well with the makeup.

Miss, you have been a busy one, haven't you? Seiji!!! Love that boy (you are spoiling him though... but then again he's a sweetie and deserves it). I love what you've made for him. Awesome photos of the pants but they look more amazing in person. Great bead work by the way.

I seriously love the straps you added to the mask. They are totally to scale and perfect. I'm trying to think if you made a respirator before the one shown above. If so I don't think I've seen it? I love the new one.

Ian has a new look? I'm going to have to check him out in person some time soon.

I have! XD So do I! I just can't help but spoil him...he's too much fun. Thank you, and thanks for the compliment on the beadwork, too. I wasn't sure how well it would work out, but I think it looks pretty good.

Thanks! <3 The respirator I'm talking about is that hard studded mask I made-not the same design as this, but more-or-less a cybergoth syle respirator mask. I love this one too-it was a pain to get sized right (and to get the filters shaped), but it turned out better than I'd hoped, with my lack of sculpting skills.

Yep. I got bored with the red and black and changed it up. You are! If you're not too terribly busy with work and/or con prep some time in the next week or two, want to meet at Matsuri for lunch? I'll bring Ian.

Ah, I remember now. You've brought the respirator to a few meets before. That was still a good sculpt you did. This newer one seems to be a different kind of style so it's hard to compare the two.

I took the whole week of the con off to prepare. I'm sure I can run off one of those days to snag some lunch with you and check out Ian's new look and the goodies you've been making. I'm just sorry I haven't been around much lately. Things have been just plain weird. Meeting up would be a good thing plus I have some some new doll plans to share with you. I'm actually getting a doll head sent off to have some work done! Crazy, right?

Thanks. Yes, it is a bit different. Somehow this one was a lot easier to size properly. Maybe it was the fact that I have filters on this one?

Awesome! Just let me know whatever day you'd like to meet. O.o You, sending a doll out for work? Crazy, indeed! I'm intrigued. XD
