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!

hey everyone! sorry for the delay in posting pics, i actually got my package about a week ago. i've had some pretty frustrating internet problems since moving into a new apartment so thats why it took so long. well without further ado...!
this is everything!
a little backstory-back in september my house was blown to Oz by hurricane Ike, taking my entire collection of books with it. so i lost all of my LOTR books! Cry but my awesome partner sent me new ones!(well, they're new to me hehe. their actually used books, but thats ok because i hate breaking in brand new books. used books just have a better feel to them.) she sent me the LOTR trilogy PLUS the silmarillion! she also made me this 100% original knitted hobbity hat. she made the pattern herself:)

she also made me this 100% original knitted hobbity hat. she made the pattern herself:) i've been wearing it everynight this week because its soo comfy and keeps my head warm

and this box that looks like a book that i can hide all my knick-knacks in

and inside i found these! im going to hang them on the banzai tree in my room hah

and two more cute little boxes. i abosultely love the "Samwise Gamgee's Precious Things" one

thanks so much , electric fire! awesome package!
