1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / When You're a Zombie It Can Be Kinda Fun: Zombie Hannah Montana on: November 06, 2009 09:27:00 AM
So. I can't help it. I love Hannah Montana. The show is so fun and mindless, and Hannah has the best clothes ever. So this year I decided to be Hannah Montana for Halloween, but not just any Hannah Montana. Oh no. I wanted to be scary and disgusting! So I transformed myself into Zombie Hannah Montana! Whoever thought that a girl like her would crave to eat human flesh?



Originally I had planned to make a dress, but as I am in school right now I found that I had no time for that. This oufit seemed to work better than the dress though anyways. Everyone recognized who I was. I drafted a pattern for the skirt and made it out of nylon fabric that someone had given me and an old belt that I had. The wig was from Value Village, and I used various different tops from my wardrobe for the shirts/sweaters. The leggings and shoes are all from my regular closet too. I won't lie. I try to dress like her sometimes.

The mic stand was an awesome touch. My dad, who is amazing with props, made it for me from a ski pole, wig stand, wig, and an image of Nick Jonas' face. It was all bloody and gross and rainy weather caused it to look worse and worse (so better and better) as the nights went on. Everyone had a blast with it.


Happy Zombie


Hannah, Nick J, and Hannah's friend Zombie Marie Antoinette.

So that's pretty much it. Hope you like it!

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / FREEDOM Pillow on: February 28, 2009 05:15:40 PM
He may be crazy, but you can't deny that Mel Gibson is a little bit fantastic. I made this pillow out of leftover material from another project, and a t-shirt that I found at Value Village. I almost died when I found it. Firstly because the idea that they actually made these shirts when Braveheart came out is hilarious, and secondly because the idea that someone wore it around is even more hilarious. It was a very worn-out t-shirt, so some guy obviously loved it. I filled it with polyfill, it's just a pillow, pretty self-explanatory. Just thought I would share. I love it to death!

4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Joker Potato Head on: February 28, 2009 05:01:26 PM
So. I made this for one of my friends for... Christmas. But not last Christmas. The Christmas before that. The Dark Knight had not come out yet and, like I'm sure everyone was, we were SO excited for it to be released! Batman is the best. All I did was take a regular Mr. Potato Head and paint different pieces. His face white, his eyes black, his hands purple, shoes black, etc. I also made him a purple coat and a black bowtie out of felt. His hair was the tricky part. I used a massacred potato head ball cap as a sort of scalp, through which I pushed pieces of neon-green... I don't remember what it's called, but that plasticky string that little kids make bracelets and keychains out of. I remember not being a huge fan of the hair when it was done, but I think it looks ok. The plastic, rather than yarn or something, seemed to fit in better with the other potato head pieces. Finally, I filled his innards with little toy machine guns, and I glued one to his hand. I decorated the box too, with joker cards, and lots of red-paint-blood. Drips and fingerprints and things. Then I spelled out "The Joker" and "To ----- From -----" with magazine letters, like in a ransom note. It turned out really cute. He's more cartoony than Heath Ledger's Joker, but it's hard to make Mr. Potato Head look scary. And my friend really liked it which made me super-happy.


Sorry that this is the only picture. I'm pretty sure that I took some from multiple angles as I was making it, but my old computer recently crashed and I lost a lot of stuff. I had to steal this from my friend's Facebook page. Thanks for looking!
5  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Silk Spectre (from Watchmen) Costume Halloween 2008 on: February 28, 2009 10:31:44 AM
So, it's a little after Halloween, but I wanted to put up these pictures because I loved last Halloween! My sister and I decided to go as the two versions of Silk Spectre (Sally and Laurie), because we love Watchmen! It was my sister's amazing idea. She was the one who introduced me to the book. But anyways, I went as Laurie and she went as Sally. Unfortunately I can't find pictures of both of us, but when I find some I will put them up.

Here are some pictures of my costume. I didn't have a pattern for anything, but I used some yellow fabric to make the jumpsuit part, and a thrift-store little girl's dress that I altered all over the place for the... black part over top. I'm not sure what you would call that. I wore a black shirt underneath, and black tights, and finished it with some gloves and boots that I bought. I made a little Dr. Manhattan guy to carry around with me too. He is SO off-kilter, but I love him just the same. He is just blue-flannel that I cut into a sort-of-person-shape and stuffed. I drew his eyes and muscles on with Sharpie and white-out. Not the best decisions, I know, but I made the whole thing the night before Halloween! I loved how it turned out, considering, and to top it all off it was nice outside on Halloween night! This means that I did not have to wear a winter coat over my costume, which is a big deal if you live in Canada like me. The only thing that bugged me was that only a couple people knew who I was! Everyone else thought that I was a bee. Worst bee costume ever!








This is the only picture I could find of the back of my costume. My friends and I went glo-bowling on Halloween, after trick-or-treating of course! Oh, and I bet you can't guess what my friend taking this picture was dressed as... That's right, it was the Joker! Ha I just loved how everyone on this board has a picture of themselves with one of their friends who was the Joker last year. It was THE costume of 2008. But my friend's costume was the coolest. He was the nurse Joker and he looked awesome!

6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Rorschach Sock Monkey (from Watchmen) on: February 27, 2009 10:36:07 AM
My friend loves Watchmen so I made him this sock monkey for his birthday. I was on a bit of a sock-monkey-making kick, and I brain-waved when I saw someone else on Craftster who had made Dr. Manhattan sock monkeys. They were so cute! So I thought that I would make Rorschach. His hat isn't the best. Fedora's are tricky when you have no idea what shape to start with, but hopefully you get the idea. All his clothes and his mask are felt, and I sewed a little Comedian's button to his hand, and... Ya. Hope you guys like it. Hopefully my friend likes it too. This is my very first post! Hopefully the pictures work... I actually have no idea what I'm doing... I thought it was cute though! And the movie comes out next week! It's going to be super-awesome!


Sorry. I couldn't get the lighting quite right.
