41  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: an early start for the princess of power on: May 25, 2008 04:47:27 PM
Probably the best costume idea ever. When I was little my older brothers friend went as She-ra I was so jealous. Hers was sore bought, so a plastic dress and mask womp womp.

Some sort of polyester would probably be your best bet for the cape. Maybe the kind that most store bought costumes are made of(they have a bit of a sheen on both sides).
For the muscle suit you could get a nude leotard or long-sleeved shirt (depending if you wanted the legs to be ripped too...and if you can manage to convince your bf to wear a leotard) and do some strategic shading with a slightly darker shade of fabric paint. You cold also take a note from me circa grade 7 and stuff like crazy, although I wasn't exactly going for the same look I'm sure the results are quite similar to stuffing a bra.
42  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Ringmaster costume help on: May 25, 2008 04:22:20 PM
So I've been thinking about my costume for this year for a while now and a few months ago I decided I would be a ringmaster.
I'm obv not going to buy the costume, they're all 'sexy ringmaster' (read: naked) and I don't want to waste my sewing abilities.
So I found myself a fantastic pattern:
I'm pretty happy with it, I don't like the bell sleeves or the corset-type front closure. I can fix the sleeves no problem, I just don't know what to do about the front.
I was thinking maybe something like this (check my MS paint skills)

So I'm thinking gold buttons with a chain linking them.
Does such a thing exist? Would it even work? Any other suggestions?

The deciding factor between this costume and my other options was the fact that I get a top hat AND whip. SO excited! Thanks!
