1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: 18th century noble woman for Halloween. on: November 06, 2008 03:55:40 PM
The pattern is little people throughout. Some are riding on horses, pretty cute though. The pattern is called "Persia", but I think it's discontinued. I bought a whole roll of this fabric from a thrift store for only $20. I have a load of it left.
2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / 18th century noble woman for Halloween. on: November 05, 2008 07:04:21 PM
It's a two piece costume with a bodice that's fully boned in the front and laces in the back. It has a skirt attached to the bodice. The under skirt is the same material as the bodice and fits over a full crinoline. I was wearing a white peasant blouse and black gloves and of course jewelry to complete the look. I made this outfit myself and am very pleased with the results. And this is made from a pattern I drafted myself -first time ever. Tell me what you think!

That's really cool. I love the lining, but then I love anything with skulls and crossbones. Roll Eyes

Wow that's an interesting find. You could probably use them as art in a collage of found objects. There's an artist in Raleigh, NC that does something like that.

Here's a link to some of her stuff.

I don't how you'd get the labels off the bottles without ruining them. I don't believe soaking them will work.

Good luck.

I like them. I think they would be cool on a t-shirt.
7  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: My closet exploded all over me--- or Gypsy costume. (2 images and 1 vid) on: September 23, 2007 05:19:27 PM
Nice costume! I'm planning on being a gypsy for Halloween too, the stuff I put together is all red, white and colorful. You make a more convincing Roma than I do, I'm all fair skinned and blue eyed - not very exotic.

That is so cool! I like it with the apron - it looks kinda anime.

Now I'm inspired to make a circle skirt.

Can someone tell me how to do the shrinky dink thing with #6 plastic containers? I know I have some around my house somewhere.

I wish my son was interested in doing artsy stuff, but he's more into video games than anything else.
