1  Lou Reed bleach stencil in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Amphigorey on: January 21, 2007 11:51:15 AM
I made this Lou Reed shirt as a birthday gift for my sister. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, but it wasn't the easiest stencil to work with. I had to go back and do a lot of areas without the stencil, like the eyes, mouth, and nose. It was also my first attempt at shading with bleach (I used a clorox bleach pen...pretty easy to work with).



I hope you all like it! And in case anyone wants the stencil, I forgot to save it  Sad but it's just the already stencil-like image from Transformer without the guitar and microphone...pretty easy to fix in paint.

Thanks for looking!

2  I cut my shirts in half in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Amphigorey on: January 21, 2007 11:28:21 AM
These were the easiest reconstructions!  I took two unflattering shirts, either too short or wide, cut them in half and added a tighter midsection.  I don't have the before pictures, but trust me, they're much better this way!



Thanks for looking!

When I first saw this, I knew I had to attempt it. So here's my shot at it...I figured I'd wear a shirt more than a dress, so I changed it in that way.  I also used really stretchy material and made the bottom part less full than if it had been a dress. Thanks so much for the tutorial!!!  And rainythunder and Pseudonym33 yours turned out great too, very unique and brave with the buttons!

Here's my version:

4  Fingerless Gloves in Crochet: Completed Projects by Amphigorey on: October 19, 2006 04:26:15 PM
I can't remember exactly how I found this pattern, but here's the link: http://members.aol.com/cillcrochets/fingerless.html

I love them except that they don't fit right in a few spots, I don't know if it was my guage (or lack of  Smiley) or a size thing. I added buttons instead of a side seam to try and correct it though.

Anyway, I'm so happy to have finally finished them after working on and off for quite some time, so.......here they are:









They were pretty easy to make and I think the pattern could be adjust as you go by just holding the piece up to your hand.

5  Re: Librarians in Halloween Costumes by Amphigorey on: October 09, 2006 09:43:34 AM
I went as a teacher for a costume party.

I had a pencil in my bun and carried a ruler.
I think a librarian would be pretty similar. Just replace the ruler with books and maybe wear a cardigan and reading glasses on a chain around your neck. Hope that helps a little  Smiley

6  Diane Von Furstenberg and Simplicity dresses in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Amphigorey on: September 18, 2005 04:28:34 PM
I was going to make a DVF dress I saw in vogue or glamour or something this summer, but it became my mom's project as I didn't have time to figure it out.  She did a great job...I used it on vacation over my bathing suit.  It was made from Ikea curtains from the as-is section (It is a gauzy material)


This dress is from a simplicity pattern and made from a duvet cover from the Ikea as-is bin (I stock up  Smiley)  My mom helped me with the zipper as I haven't got that down yet, and we made the back criss-cross for a better fit.  Please excuse the wrinkles.

I love this idea....I've been saving rolls for months.

Here's mine, I covered it with some old Ikea curtains.
  I definately want to try a square one now.  I just need to find a way to attach it to my tv, because there is no place to set it down in front.

8  Re: What's everyone doing for Halloween this year??? in Halloween Costumes by Amphigorey on: September 14, 2005 09:09:25 AM
Thanks for the links. Both of those costumes are great!  I was actually thinking of using latex on my boobs  Embarrassed.  The top as you can see has no straps.  I thought maybe I could make a latex mold of my "chest", and then find a way to attach the cups when I wear the costume.  I don't want to get the latex that you just paint on your body, as that seems a little too bare for me.  Do you think it would be possible to get the latex cups to "stick" to my chest? and is there a certain kind I should use? Any advice would be helpful...and thanks again for posting the tit-head picture...priceless.  Here is a picture of the costume from the movie:

I love how vibrant your shirt is HairstylinMama.  Great job!

Taloola, I think this shirt would look great in a stretchy fabric.  I bought a similar shirt in stretch fabric, except the band around the top goes from like 1" in one corner to maybe 3" in the other corner (across the chest asymmetrically) which gives it a different look.  Also, the straps are elastic and have a bit of fabric as "flutter" sleeves.  I think it would be cute to try it like this.  If I get around to making one I'll be sure to post pics.

Here's a rough rough sketch of what I mean:

10  Vogue hat collection in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Amphigorey on: August 16, 2005 05:39:43 PM
Vogue 7600 - the brim turned out huge. Good hat for sitting at the beach.
 

Vogue 8008 - the base is really quick and easy, the flower was hard to put together because it was so thick.
 

Vogue 7619
