Any reason why you couldn't use regular maragarine? Also, what do you use instead of eggs? When you do make a vegan cookie, post a pic. Just remember, I'm the originator of the Al cookie.

;)

I prefer Pure, partially because some margarines have skimmed milk in. I will try to make a vegan Al cookie soon. Any requests on the attire?

Hmm, whatever you'd like. I usually put him in a Hawaiian shirt, but you could do the nerdy character from the White and Nerdy video. That'd be cute.

I use a substitute made from soya protiens, that is used by people who are allergic to eggs.

How do you shape the cookie?

I use a cookie cutter. Mine is Wilton's boy cookie cutter. I used their girl cookie cutter to make Suzanne. I have many, many cookie cutters. I used a cardinal shaped one to make a Bo cookie, and a dog one for Bela. Your best bet is sugar cookie dough that has been refrigerated. Good luck!

I mentioned a while ago in the "Project Help" topic that I was making beaded jewellery to wear to the upcoming Perth concert. Well, I've pretty much completed them - I just have to tidy the ends on the bracelet and attach a button to it - so, without further ado, here they are (laid out on a piece of white paper, not modelled since I have trouble taking photos of myself :P):

The top ("AL") one is the choker, the "AL GAL" one is the bracelet. The pic isn't the best because of flash-glare on the beads, but you get the idea.

Aww, thanks! :S Yeah, I plan on wearing them elsewhere, like maybe to uni... :)

For anyone who's interested, I made these using a wooden loom and weaving across thirteen warp-threads with clear nylon thread and glass seed-beads. It was time consuming, but I like the results. :D

I'm a little nervous about wearing these into the presence of the Great Weird One, though... assuming Al even does a meet & greet here, I don't know whether to keep wearing them after the concert or take them off before I see him...

I made neckalces durring the last tour. with shrinky dink paper and wore them to a couple of concerts. I think he was more interested in the Quisp doll I gave him at one show though. Hehe. I posted pics of the necklace quite a ways back in this topic.
