1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / SKELETON LEGGINGS (that actually line up and fit nice!{with tute!}) on: September 05, 2012 11:53:34 AM




It's been a real long time since I've been here guys and I'm excited to be back! So here we go:

I find that store bought skeleton leggings never line up right, so I decided to make my own.

Materials:  a god book, pre-washed leggings, trash bags, chalk, reference photos, lower body, and some kind of bleach pen (I used one for cleaning tiles that contained bleach) or thickened bleach and paintbrush.

step one-put on pre-washed leggings

step two-cut long wide strips of trash bags

three-stuff leggings with trash bag strips, to cover entire front of leg (to protect skin from bleach)

four and five-with chalk and reference photos sketch a rough outline of the skeleton on your leggings, be sure to line the bones up to yourself by feeling your hipbones, shins, knees ect.

six-get ready for bleach!

seven-sit on an opened trash bag, and use the bleach to complete your designs by following your outline and adding a little detail (crosshatching, shading, splatters, whatever you want!) sit still and read a good book for a few minutes until the bleach soaks in and the designs begin to show (the longer you wait the whiter the design will be)

eight-rinse your leggings (you can take them off and rinse if you want, I just jumped in the shower with them on)

nine-wash in hot water, neutralize the bleach whatever way you predfer (i like hydrogen peroxide) and dry (gentle cycles in machines, hand wash is fine too)

ten-flaunt it sexybones!

so i'm checking in, and have been steadily crafting, but it gets crazy because it's both my job and my love. so when i leave work i'm all crafted out  Tongue but, i do have a good chunk of my swap crafting done and am steadily growing more and more excited to see everything! Smiley

my crafty tattoo! it's based off of Tim Burton's "voodoo girl" but i added the needle and thread with an ampersand (&) to make it litterally a needle AND thread! i nearly killed my tattoo artist in the process cause i made him color outside the lines on the pins, i know its super blurry and the colors arent bright, but taking a picture with a cameraphone of my sternum proved difficult!!
