If anyone is interested, I just made a post for the Blame Not My Cheeks dress I made for the show!
7  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Repo:The Genetic Opera "Blame Not My Cheeks" dress on: April 20, 2010 09:05:28 AM
This is a dress I made for the Amber's Sweets' shadowcast performance of Repo:The Genetic Opera! This is the dress that Paris Hilton wears when she sings "Blame Not My Cheeks".  I wanted to make one that was true to the size of the one she wears in the movies...and I think I came close!  For the top of the dress, I used Simplicity pattern #2832 but I made the pattern for the bottom of the dress myself.  That was a HUGE pain in the rear!  I went through about 3 different rough drafts of the panniers before I finally found one that would work!  The final dress wound up being about 4 1/2 feet wide!

Here's the top of the dress (mostly) finished with the panniers, before I draped the skirt (sorry for the blurry image, that was taken with my phone!)  The panniers were boned with crown molding ends from home depot because I couldn't find anything strong enough in a fabric store!  They actually worked VERY well!

Here's how it looked right after I draped the skirt (model: Jessalyn...who wore it in the show!)

You can see a close up of the sleeves and the back here.  I also made those gold gloves and the black choker for the outfit! (model: Our fearless director, Ashley)

I wish I had a better picture of the entire dress (I'll get one eventually) but here we are at Wondercon 2010!

Comments and criticisms always accepted!  I'd also love to hear from other Repo shadowcasts!

Holy cow!  Just got my package from popculturerecycled and it is AMAZING!  So many detailed, beautiful things...I hope I got pictures of everything!
The first thing I pulled out was Mal's box.

It was filled with all sorts of documents, Blue Sun stationary, money, index cards, a letter from Inara, a ticket to go see her and the bottle of whiskey he drank instead!!!!! Also in there was a CD of scripts how the series could have continued with the first one printed out!

Next was package #2!  This has biodegradable plant pots with "Not Mandatory" and firefly ship images on it.  There was a rubix cube with images from the show and little Wash charms (a leaf and a beagle!) There was also a strawberry that turned into a shopping bag and a Jayne hat magnet! 

The next thing to unwrap was two beautiful decorative plates with a silhouette of the ship

And, finally, at the very bottom, there was a Topsy-Turvy strawberry planter! Wow!

I should also mention that she wrapped all of these things in fabrics so now I have more fabric to add to my stash..which is always a good thing :-)  Here's a picture of all of the fabric

One of the fabrics is the kind you make maxi dresses out of so you can bet that I'll have a maxi dress before too long!
And here's everything altogether (except for the whiskey bottle...which my boyfriend stole to put in our kitchen!)

Thanks for everything!
