11  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / elf slippers that became court jester on: November 10, 2013 05:11:46 AM
Hi everyone Smiley

As my old slippers were falling apart, I made new ones.
The post with the old ones, containing the tutorial/pattern

People keep telling me that I look a bit insane wearing them, but I like them Smiley
The fabric is so soft and fluffy, like velvet with a very short pile? And the colours are so great!!!

Making of (Maybe this helps with the pattern?)

Thank you all so much for your nice comments Smiley
13  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / steampunk-ringmaster-fairy on: November 09, 2013 10:04:17 AM
Hi everyone! I haven't posted here in a while, but I wanted to share my halloween costume. I started it more than a year ago, but I got it finished the day before the halloween party!

I was going for steampunk-ringmaster I don't know if that worked, but I really like how everything turned out.

I made:
- The corset
- the shirt with the insane collar
- the whip (wood turning and all)
- the jewellery I wore in my hair
- the skirt
- the petticoat
- the bloomers that went under the petticoat (best thing ever for a party in november!!!)

I wore my great brown suede boots with the costume, sadly that's a little hard to see on the pictures.

close ups of the corset:

the finishing steps of the corset, you can see the hooks I used to close it here

And the bloomers, that were very handy but mostly hidden under the petticoat. The petticoat was a monster to sew, it's huge.

Sorry for the grumpy face, btw. I'm not sure why all of the pictures are so stern, but probably because we were late already and in a hurry Wink

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the concept of using the tools themselves as stamps.
And I really like the pattern you created  Smiley

Is there any chance that you have more pictures of it (and are willing to share them?)
I'd love to see detail shots Smiley

That is the best project I've stumbled across in quite some time!

That is so pretty! Just the right amount of kitsch.  Cheesy
The embroidery looks perfect on that fabric!

I wore it for a costume party and most of the time I didn't even notice it was on my head. And the moments I did were when I almost couldn't get in and out of the car  Roll Eyes

That reminds me of this "The Far Side" cartoon: "Nature scenes we rarely see."

Thanks for the advice on the weight.

Haha, yes.
I also got caught in those straps that dangle from the top of the streetcar. I am sure that looked exactly like in the cartoon Grin

I guess the same principle would apply to making larger antlers like elk and moose. You might have to use heavier gauge wire.
I wouldn't want to wear one that heavy, though. Might be worth it if I wanted to dress up as Bullwinkle.

I actually made a deer one (I don't have it here, but I think it was about 15 inches high) and I didn't change a thing in the construction. I wore it for a costume party and most of the time I didn't even notice it was on my head. And the moments I did were when I almost couldn't get in and out of the car  Roll Eyes

The antlers are fairly lightweight due to the use of papier mache, so you could go quite big without them being too heavy.
