1  Fun with Tyvek...Costumes as Art! Lots of Pics in Costumes: Completed Projects by alyrenee on: March 10, 2008 12:30:03 PM
So I got a sweet gig for the Society for Contemporary Art for the Art Institute of Chicago designing/making costumes for four characters performing at the benefit event.  The party was held in the former Carson Pirie Scott building downtown and the theme was 'deconstruction'.  So I designed the costumes for the four characters (Architect, Singer, Painter, Sculptor) using unconventional materials such as tarping, tyvek, thermoplastic, cable ties, memory wire, and sporting equipment and combined those modern elements with fashion elements from the Belle Epoque.  With the help of my two stitchers/crafters Melissa Heischberg and Ilda Marrerro, we created these costumes from scratch adding in a few store bought basics like overalls and trousers. I then painted the pieces and added architectural elements to them. I am quite pleased with the results...

2  Magnetic Paperdoll: Dress me Up Aubrey Phreque in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by alyrenee on: January 22, 2008 10:07:51 AM
Aubrey is one of my comic strip characters from my comic, The Family Phreque, about a traveling sideshow circus that retires in a small midwestern town: hilarity ensues. Aubrey is, obviously, the bearded lady. I drew up the paper doll and colored it in photoshop. I printed up the page and then got a sheet of self-adhesive magnet from the local craft store and stuck it on. Then I cut it out with sharp scissors and an exacto knife without too much blood loss. I already had a swell metal lunchbox to sport her around on...but she also looks great on the fridge! I have a Dress me Up Buffy paper doll started too and will post pics shortly.

3  My 1st & 2nd Sock Efforts! in Knitting: Completed Projects by alyrenee on: January 21, 2008 11:41:41 AM
I made these in the last two week.  I am loving sock making now and want to move on to tricky patterns now.  For both of these I used  the Hello Yarn Skull Socks of Fury pattern http://www.helloyarn.com/skullsocks.htm

the skull socks are with bernat sock yarn in hot tamale...i think


And these are made with ivory wool and using the same instructions...but instead of the skulls I did a little cable down the front.  Both pairs could do with some steaming and blocking....
