I am so totally jealous of your Helena costume; it looks superb!

you may want to check the instructables website for directions. I also think you may be able to fashion a pair out of polymer clay. to stick them... maybe the caps you bought already come w/ some kind of putty?

Angry mother earth...Global warming...hot flashes...menopausa l mother earth? carry around a small fan and constantly complaint about the temperature? And how about oil spills on your dress and/or shoes?

I really like Capt_ Jordi's idea of an angler fish, I think it would be easy enough to handle. As far as getting it done;:
I like spray painting but any acrylic paint works fine. If you go to a craft store they'll be able to help you.
Don't worry about your painting skillz. As far as kelp goes a bit of irregular shaped sponge (even the corner of a dishwashing sponge) and a brush can help you create an awesome seascape. and if you don't like it, wash it of and start over!
craft foam and toothpicks are your friends.
Let the pumpkin/gourd speak to you and tell you what IT wants to be. The misshaped ones are the best!

Hope this helps. Good luck! Tongue

Since rockabilly is all biker and leather (and btw if you can get a leather vest/jacket at the thrift store it would be supper cool) how about a big applique on the back of the jacket, (you can make it out of felt). I really like the heart w/ wings and a knife that your picture is sporting upfront, and on the sash it could say "mrs. frankenstein"
7  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: What's with Burton and wedding dresses anyways? *costume help* on: October 14, 2008 08:33:54 AM
Yes, you can go any color you wish. The depth of the color depends on the number of markers you use. Many dresses use a combination of fabrics (silk, rayon, polyester nylon). If this is the case with your dress you may want to use the Rit Dye first, like Alexus suggested, and then use the markers, that way you ensure total even coverage.

w/ the courset, skirts and petticoat (and maybe even cape) how about being a spicy chick-en. W/ felt you can make a small beak, wattles and a comb. Tongue
9  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Dreadlocks-centered costume ideas? on: October 14, 2008 08:16:15 AM
How about one half of the albino ghost twins from "The Matrix" or Predator Shocked

Maybe make the jacket a bit more fitted? Turn the jacket inside out have your husband put it on and zip it up and take in what you need. Also the jacket seems a little more silvery to me, how about spray paint and it does need a pink (doohickey, whatyoumachallit, i don't know what it is) on the sleeve.


Great idea for a costume!
