21  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Ice mask for Hercules titans performance on: October 06, 2014 12:51:25 AM
Every year my BFF and I make the costumes for our annual "Childrens Day" event. This year the performance was Hercules. (Of course...Disney). I made the Ice costumes. The body is just a white long sleeved t-shirt. I sewed long strips of tulle of different shades and textures along the top of the shoulders. The masks: I took white simple masks from the craft store and "made" icicles with hot glue. Painting some with silver spray paint and others with blue glittery glue. Made some snow flakes with got glue. and took a clear plastic water bottle, cut thin strips. Heated them over a small flame and wound them to look like an icicle. Then glued them all on to the masks.

I also made the "stone" masks. Black foam glued around a mask in blocks. I made a hole in two and added lights to look like eyes. When they were on stage I was very happy with the results of the "eyes" because there was a "smoke" haze and the eyes really glowed.

Some of the materials for the stone mask:

If I ever find the pictures of them on stage I'll try to post.
Thank you for looking.
22  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Easy Peasy Barbie in a Box costume on: October 05, 2014 11:45:38 PM
My BFF and I donated making a costume for a local fundraiser. The "winner" wanted a Barbie in a Box. We googled it since we'd not heard of that one yet and came up with this.
(Sorry. We were so pressed for time that no progress pics.)
We found a large box. Cut out the front leaving the parts for the decoration. I had some clear vinyl  left over so that was the front....took us forever to find barbie pink wrapping paper. We made two handles inside the box so it wouldn't just sit on her head. We also decided to open the top of the box for light and closed it off with more vinyl.
Happy girl---happy me.
Quick, easy and the best results...she won a prize.

23  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Little girls Peacock Costume on: October 05, 2014 11:36:24 PM
A friend of mine asked me to help her make a peacock costume for her daughter for Purim last year. This is the result.

Here are some in progress pictures.
I took a fleece blanket (from her Mom) and cut out a neck hole and rounded out the bottom according to the little girls size.

Got my "feathers" ready:

Cutting out my patterns then the felt:

Cutting Looooooots of feathers:

Then hot gluing them together:

Then hot gluing them to the "blanket" body:

Creating the "body" of the peacock in front. Blue felt with some patterned, shimmery tule I had.

After three attempts.... Front:


I sent the Mom three "feathers" for a headdress if her daughter wanted one.

Result: One happy little girl and that's all that's important.
This was the easiest yet most time consuming thing I've ever sewn!!!

That smile says it all!
