1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / CRISTOBAL IS HERE!!! (well technically, Cristobal has always been here...) on: November 01, 2009 09:47:38 AM
So the idea for this costume has been forming for the last few months, starting when my friends and I were saying how the name "Cristobal" sounds like "Crystal Ball". From then on I have become this ridiculous character, Cristobal. I wore the costume to school on Friday, which was the first time Cristobal made a public appearance, hehe. I didn't even think of posting it on here, but since i had already made this costume...
Before the pictures, a little background on Cristobal:
Cristobal talks in a Jamaican accent and is also Italian who says random words like "tortellini" and "lasagna" while waving her arms mysteriously . She is an all-knowing psychic who gives nonsense predictions by looking into her crystal ball to see the future. When Cristobal predicts the future, scary organ music and thunder plays and her cape blows furiously (idealistically) , but otherwise happy steel drum music plays.
uummmm, i think that's all you need to know about Cristobal...

The turban a friend helped me make, it's basically just a big pillow-hat wrapped with a big green tablecloth and then a big felt eye pinned on the front.
it was SO heavy.

I kept the crystal ball in my hand-made sling (which you can kinda see) cause a few weeks ago i got bit by a snake and still have to wear a sling (ugh), so whenever i made a prediction I would mysteriously take my crystal ball out from the depths of my cape, haha.


I made the cape, doesn't really need explaining, and then glued glitter on to say Cristobal with a huge eye, of course. I had to coat the glued glitter with watery glue because the glitter was coming off all over my house, but now it stays Smiley


Here is the whole costume, you can't really see the pants, but I made those too from here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=254336.0




Hope you enjoyed!

This is amazing.  From the thumbnail, I thought maybe it was one of those hook rug things...THIS IS SO MUCH COOLER! 

Do you mind if I ask how you attached the flowers to the canvas?  Did you just use craft glue?  I'd love to try this (although to be honest, I don't know that I have the patience that I imagine this would require...I think I might cut out half the flowers, and then get irritated and crabby and throw them across the room).

~Callie~

i just used Elmer's glue to attach the flowers, and that worked fine. if you're using thick or glossy paper (which you shouldn't do because it's hard to cut) the flowers  might peel away, but using magazines with Elmer's glue works perfectly. and yeah, when i was making this i did get a little discouraged because of the amount of time i had to put into it, but if you're watching a movie or TV while doing it, it goes a lot faster!

Thanks!!!

This is amazing!  I love any type of lily, so that makes it even better.  The "distance" photo is so cool - You've definitely inspired me to try this, myself!

you should definitely do this!!! if you have a lot of time and patience it's a great project to undertake, and it has a very rewarding result!

Thanks!!
and yeah, i did cut out all the flowers by hand, it took a LOT of time, but it was worth it!

hey everyone!
for this challenge i made a big reproduction of a water lily photo that i had taken. i cut out tiny flowers out of magazines and divided a canvas into about 500 squares and then glued the cut-out flowers to the canvas to form a pixelated version of the original photo. it took me forever to find and cut out all the magazine flowers, but i'm happy with the end result. It's kinda hard to see the picture as a whole since it's close up, sorry.





shows the color better:

This is a bad picture, but it shows the flower better since it's far away:

thanks so much looking!
