    Mickey Ears, version 2.0

    Some of you might remember the thread last year with some of us posting pics of our blinged-out Mickey ears. Here are the Disneyland ones I did back then:




    Well this week I suddenly got the brilliant idea to do it again with some WDW ears, but this time do it a little different. I'm going to use black stones on the ears and go all red around the Mickey patch. Michaels didn't have what I needed, so I found a place online that did. The stuff went out tonight and I should have it next week (it's already made its way today from NYC to Jacksonville!).

    I'll post a pic once it's all done. Last time took me I think 3 weeks. We'll see how long this project takes. Want to wear them on my nwxt WDW trip at the end of January if they're finished.

    Those are the ones I made last year. Just wait until I finish the other ones. The black stones on the ears are going to rock 10 ways to Sunday.

    BTW, I'm an idiot and thought my rhinestones were already in FL. They're actually "in transit". UPS says I'll have them on January 3rd.

    They come in packs of 6 dozen (72 piees) and they had so many colors! I ordered 5 packs of black stones (360 pieces) and 1 pack of red (they call it "siam"). They should arrive tomorrow or Thursday. Anxious to get started as I want to get them done before the 24th! :yay:

    Re: Mickey Ears, version 2.0

    My rhinestones are supposed to be delivered today. UPS still hasn't come. The package has been on the truck "out for delivery" for 12 hours now and I'm getting mad. UPS delivers until around 7:00 so I still got time. But if they don't get delivered today I am calling tomorrow to seriously complain.

    Re: Mickey Ears, version 2.0

    They finally arrived around 7:30. Just spent the last 3 hours working on them. Finished off one pack of black stones and did the red ones around the patch. I have a feeling I didn't order enough black stones though. I probably got enough for one ear. Oh well. I'll just have to order more!

    The black stone are looking pretty sweet though!

    Re: Mickey Ears, version 2.0

    Well, I got 3 packs of the black stones on one ear. Looking good so far. I definitely didn't get enough so I'll have to order more. I'm hoping I'll have enough with the last 2 packs I currently have to finish off one ear, but right now it doesn't look promising. I compared to my other ears and the stones I'm using now are .5mm smaller than the stones I used on the DL ears.

    There's a bead store around the corner from me. Might take a peek in there tomorrow to see if they might have what I need. If not, I'll just order more from the other place. This is my last pair of ears I'm rhinestoning though. Too time consuming and can get expensive!

    Re: Mickey Ears, version 2.0

    Just wanted to post an update. The ears are coming along. I messed up on one and spent over an hour last night prying stones off to be re-positioned. I must have taken off 200 stones. And I ran out.... again! Should get my final shipment in the mail tomorrow. Found a place that sells them cheaper. I will be sooooooo glad when this dang thing is done.
