13  Re: 2007 Completed Costumes Scrapbook! (completed project pictures & links go here!) in Halloween Costumes by mandajane on: October 28, 2007 09:59:45 AM
Ok so this year I decided to be a peacock. I also decided to make my costume for the first time. This is my first wearable craft ever & i should mention that my sewing machine is broken so i had to HAND SEW every bit lol. *And sadly, I will NOT get to wear it because I have to work halloween!!!* Sad

I found this monstrously ugly 80s dress at a secondhand shop that was the perfect color and form. The back was longer than the front, so it could easily be converted to a tail. I bought it for 3 dollars!

It was originally probably a size 8 or so, (i am a size 20) and had ugly puffy sleeves and disgusting doily-like trim. I had an old blue pillowcase and other fabrics and bias tape, and this is what i came up with:

It's not a very literal looking peacock, its more of an interpretation.
BEFORE:



AFTER:


the tailfeathers:



I'm going to wear these hairfalls with it, they match the purple trim i put on the dress:
(i made them last year, theyre just an addition to my costume..i hope this doesnt violate any rules by posting these, if it does, please feel free to remove this part.)


Comments much appreciated!!

16  **TUTORIAL** EASY bday present from found objects in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by mandajane on: October 02, 2007 03:10:35 PM
Ok so here's how this came about...

-it's my little brother's 18th bday today
-he loves the FL gators
-i'm BROKE.

I had a gator's tshirt that i used to wear *and stole from my bro lol* but don't anymore because it has become full of holes (mostly on the back)
We also have several old picture frames under the shed that nobody's using.. so i combined the two (and spent $0!!):
He loved it btw Smiley

(the shirt isnt really see-thru, my flash caused that lol

In case anyone is interested in how i did this, i'll include a tutorial for ya!

TUTORIAL:
[/u]


Materials Needed:
  - Frame
  - Cardboard (if the frame does not have a cardboard back)
  - T-shirt
  - Stapler or glue (I used both)
  - Scissors
  - Wood polish (optional)

1. Cut some cardboard to fit the frame. (if you dont have any already) And polish the frame if needed.
2. Cut out the part of the shirt you want framed. Be sure you cut it slightly larger than the piece of cardboard so the edges will fold behind it.
3. Place shirt panel over the cardboard, then fold the excess fabric around the back.
4. Staple edges. Keep staples right on the edge so they wont show from the front.
5. Place cardboard in frame and hang on the wall!

thought i'd jump on the bandwagon and show off my pet TURKEY! Cheesy (don't worry he's safe, he will NOT be eaten!) I got him from a friend of the family who didnt want him anymore. He's so sweet, he's like a dog lol. His name is Butterball :X hehe. I didn't sever his beak (id never do such a thing!!) it was already like that when i got him. He's very well taken care of and eats like a PIG haha

These pics were from about a year and a half ago, he's much bigger and feathery-er now lol.
