1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Black Dahlia Costume on: November 06, 2008 07:56:57 PM

I got inspired by Elizabeth128 last year and took her Black Dahlia costume and ran with it! Sorry for the picture quality...They were all taken with the timer function while my camera perched on the TV.

Here is me hamming it up in my costume pre-dead makeup:
Front and Back Views:


Blowing Kisses and Having fun!:


And post mortem:

(my favorite part is how the stitches look like they're fighting against gravity to keep my face together Wink )
For the slash marks, I used a line of red lip liner extending straight out from the corners of my mouth when it was open. I lined the red with white eye liner on top and bottom. I took black eye liner and drew straight down the center. Then I took black liquid eyeliner and deepened the cuts/ drew the stitched. Finally, I took black eyeshadow and created the illusion that the stitches were pulling at my mouth. I used black shadow in varying thicknesses to do my "deadface."

I drafted the pattern for my dress on my own, but based it on this discontinues Simplicity Pattern:

I'm pretty pleased with how it came out-- it was my first pattern draft.

My "dahlia" is actually 5 silk chrysanthemums hot glued together, because I couldn't find a dahlia ANYWHERE!
you can kind of see it better here:


I'm really pleased with how it turned out! Only about 5 people knew who I was, but that's enough Wink

# of Flakers:1, but technically it isn't her fault.
 On July 16, I received this e-mail from user Pinky Damone's boyfriend:
Quote
She's become really ill within the last week, and tomorrow she'll be taken to Arkansas for a surgery. She had a respiratory infection and now it's spreading and she has fluid in her longs. I knew she had some deadlines, but I'm not sure what they were, so I figured I'd check here to see what I could find out. I don't know who to contact, or what to do, but I'm trying my best to navigate around this site. In any instance, she should be back home within two weeks or so, depending on the outcome. I don't know if I'll have computer access while in Arkansas, but I'll try my best to be in touch.

I've discussed it with several others, and we feel that the best thing to do is to get an angel to take her place because she is so ill. Her partner has almost finished her package and wants to send get-well items to her as well, but I fear that with the unexpected sickness, Pinky won't be able to send back.

Include the names and info of the people who need angels:

User name: lancmaltby

Favorite characters: Well - I have an orange tabby so "Cat" and I love of course Audrey Hepburn.
Favorite lines: I just love the entire movie!
Favorite scenes: singing "moon river" and getting "Cat" in the rain at the end.
Favorite colors, motifs, and/or patterns?:
Least favorite colors, motifs and/or patterns?: -
Favorite anything else?: I love it all
Any Characters/anything else you can't stand?:
Favorite Craft in the movie?(Hollys Sleep Mask, tasseled ear-plugs, a particular accessory, maybe one of Pauls Books turned into a box/purse): I do like the fancy sleep mask.
Is there anything specific you would like to receive? (Please include sizes for clothing, and preferred jewellery lengths):
What kind of items would you NOT like to receive: I'm not that picky
What kind of items can you make: I can make almost anything
What kind of items would you like to craft?: I love crafting and sewing myself - I can do almost anything.
Do you want to receive items that stick to the Breakfast at Tiffanys theme, or would you like things from other Audrey films as well? One of my other favorite movies is My Fair Lady - I have the cd soundtrack in my car and love to sing to it out loud!!! " Just you wait 'enry 'iggings - just you wait " and "The Rain in Spain stays mainly in the Plain" are a personal favorite.
Which films?(give specifics here):
Would you prefer to craft for Breakfast at Tiffanys only, or would you craft other Audrey films as well?: I will craft from B@T.
Any allergies (pets/smoke): no allergies
Do you have pets/smoke? no smoking and I do have 2 pug dogs and 1 cat
Do you have a Wist/Blog/Ravlery Account (anything stalkable)? My blog - Tissuepapers. http://www.tissupapers.blogspot.com
Anything else your partner should know?: happy and easy going with anything - just so excited to part of this swap.

9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Embroidered Vintage Hankie on: May 28, 2008 03:52:14 PM
I recently found this gorgeous hankie at a local antique mall:

I've wanted a Daisy Hankie ever since I saw "You've Got Mail"-- Meg Ryan's character has a daisy hankie that her mother embroidered for her. I was doubly excited to see it because I absoltely love the show Pushing Daisies , and I'd just watched "Pie-lette" again that morning. Chuck, one of the shows heroines, seems like a hankie person to me and I think she might carry something like this. I love to try and emulate her style-- it's just chock-full of retro elegance.

I embroidered my first initial, "M", onto the hankie in a bright yellow DMC in satin stitch. Please know that I haven't embroidered anything in about 10 years, so be gentle. Wink

Here is the finished project, along with another Pushing Daisies find, a honey bee necklace.
