1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Need help making some crazy shoulder pads 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!

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.

It's awesome! I have a bunch of stuff sitting around that I want to do something similar to, but I am afraid I am going to mess it up, but you did a great job!

I am the same way. I got a duffel bag full of shirts that no longer fit or are too big and since I'm a complete novice I'm scared of messing them up.

And I do love the shirt. Way cool.

yeah i felt the same way before i started doing recons. so i just started with a couple of shirts that i wouldn't mind if i completely screwed them up. you should go for it! you may be surprised with how it turns out.

thanks for the comments!

ok, so it even gets cold in Texas sometimes! i got this awesome shirt last month when i saw one of my favorite bands perform and ive really been wanting to wear it but it's been cooold! so i took matters into my own hands and made this sweet new pullover hoodie:D its a pretty basic recon, i know, but i was really pleased with how it came out and wanted to show you guys. i hope you like it!

ok, so basically im a big harry potter dork. that's me in a nutshell. and im going to a concert for a band called "The Remus Lupins" im sure some of yall know who they are! and i stenciled a t-shirt for the event:D (for those who havent read the books remus lupin was a werewolf in the hp series)
oh and for the record i found this slogan on craftster somewhere but it was so long ago that i cant remember where i found it! so credit for that goes to whoever it was on here that came up with it...

hope you guys like it!
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Gonna dance all night in my new 60's dress 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!
