1  Need help making some crazy shoulder pads in Costumes: Discussion and Questions by jilltheimpossible on: June 17, 2010 03:58:40 PM
Hello all!
I was hoping somebody could help me out as I'm having a bit of a problem. I'm about to get started on crafting my halloween costume for this year and I wanted to be Astrid from How to Train Your Dragon because let's face it...she's a hardcore chick. So anyway the problem I'm running into is how to make these crazy awesome shoulder pads that she wears:

I considered just taking the shoulder pads out of an old hockey uniform and using sculpy to make it appear more like armor, but then I realized that if I tried to attach the pads to the shirt with those little skull buttons that she wears- the pads would be way too heavy and would stretch out the neck of the shirt tremendously and would be almost unwearable. That's really the only idea I could come up with and it kind of fails. Does anybody have any other ideas on how I could do this? The pads don't have to look EXACTLY like the picture because that would be really hard to achieve, but I want them to at least look pretty similar.
Thanks for reading!

2  I'm so LOST in Stenciling: Completed Projects by jilltheimpossible on: February 05, 2010 11:34:40 AM
I made shirts for my boyfriend and myself for the season 6 premier of LOST. i think they came out pretty well! i apologize for all of the non-lost fans because you probably wont understand the logo on the shirt.

6  Gonna dance all night in my new 60's dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by jilltheimpossible on: September 17, 2009 11:20:18 AM
So I'm going to a 60's themed dance party and i decided to make me own dress...the only problem was i can't figure out how to use patterns to save my life. so this was all done without a pattern which caused a little problem in the midriff area. but i'm really proud of it:) its the first thing i've made that actually came out (more-or-less) according to plan.i hope yall like it!

You can probably tell that the white band across the middle isn't totally even all the way across, so i think im just going to throw a wide belt over it to cover it up. other than that i have no idea what to do for accessories....jewelry has always been a weak point for me lol. any ideas on what kind of jewelry/shoes i can use with this? gogo boots maybe? tights?
comments and criticism is always welcome!

Lupin's wizard side w/ wand

Lupin's werewolf side w/ fur!

and the back. i meant to give him a tail as well but i forgot to do it until after he was already baked.

Thanks for looking!

The sundress is my absolute favorite!  How did you make it?  
thanks! it's my favorite too:)
i got bored this evening so i put together a mini-tute for you. i hope it makes sense!
1.start with a big shirt (i used men's L in the first, but for this one its a men's medium so it came out a bit shorter)

2.cut off sleeves and collar of the shirt. turn the shirt part inside out and trim it down so that the top part measures a little bit bigger than the width under your breasts and the bottom part flares out. my chest size for the shirt was 16 inches.

3.then cut your sleeves open along the "long fold" so that they look like this. this will be your chest piece.

4. then place the open sleeves on top of eachother, right sides together, and trim those down so that the bottom part of the chest piece is as wide as the top of your skirt
5. then you just sew the chest piece on to the top of your skirt and voila!

and if you want you can add a little loop to gather the material in the chest piece like i did here

hope that helps! i know it was a short tute so let me know if i need to clear anything up.

10  cute summer dress and halters :) *now with a quick tute for dress* in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jilltheimpossible on: July 05, 2009 02:12:04 PM
so its summer and i've been spending most of my free-time raiding goodwill and family members closets haha. i came up with a few really cute ideas and whipped these three items up last night/this morning. let me know what you think!
this first one is an old t-shirt of my dads. the color was still really solid without much fading so i turned it into a strapless dress for summer. he couldn't believe it was actually his old shirt when he saw it! lol

and this one is from a men's t-shirt i snagged from goodwill for .99! wooo!
