1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Need Mechanical Doll Costume Help! Your Creative Ideas Are Much Appreciated! on: October 23, 2009 12:44:42 PM
Hi there,

  Ok, so Halloween is a week away and Im so up to my ears crafting decorations for my All Hallows Eve party, that Ive neglected any time for my costume. Im going to be a mechanical dollgot a great circle skirt dress with bib apron and a tulle skirt to make it poof out. Im making a wind-up key out of foam core to stick into a mini disco ball (so it will REALLY turn!), which Ill sew into the back of my dress, but I still want more!

 Id like to make my jaw and joints looked hinged by screws, but not sure how to do this in a 3D way. Drawing screws at my elbows, knees, wrists and jaw would look ok, but Id rather do something more dramatic. Im going for a creepy looking vintage doll look, and I need help figuring out how to fashion these screws and how to attach them to my body.

Also, any makeup tips would be much appreciated! Im thinking white makeup on my face, arms and neck, and cartoonishly pink cheeks and lips?

Thanks so much for any ideas and help!

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Stenciled Pillow with Hangy Ball Trim on: January 23, 2008 10:27:41 PM
This is my first post!!

Made this pillow for my sister for Christmas. Got a cheap but gorgeous turquoise pillowcase from TJ Maxx, and affixed the hot pink trim with fabric glue. Lastly, I cut out the stencil of the little girl and boy and used fabric paint on a piece of goodwill scrap fabric that I had lying around. The color choices might seem a bit wack, but my sister loves all of them. Surprisingly, I ended up loving them, too!!

Also, I took this picture before the glue had completely dried, so I repositioned the trim later so that it lined up along the seam much better than in looks in the picture!
