WOW, that is a sweet Pyramid Head! I had a failed attempt at that last year so my envy is extra deep  Cheesy.
I'm assuming you also made the Death mask horns out of the spray foam you talked about in the Anubis thread?

Wow, this looks great! I love Halloween costumes that are actually SCARY (like they're supposed to be).

4  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Re: Problem with Bunny Hat Pattern on: November 29, 2007 10:14:19 AM
showmehelen - I can't remember right now (my knitting is at home and I'm not). I do remember bunny hat never saw the light of day because I ended up with too many stitches, tried to decrease them in large increments, and ended up with alot of bumpiness.
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Low budget wedding on: November 20, 2007 01:26:06 PM
here's some things we did to cut costs:

1. made our own invites, programs, STDs, table numbers. buying fancy paper from an office supply store is hella cheaper - we have all the paper we could ever need, too much probably, and envelopes. I designed and printed them on the home printer and they look awesome. I also did the STDs at 3 1/2 x 5 in to get the postcard rate and save on postage.

2. had a wedding in an "off" time of year. Doing it in mid-March meant we had to meet a much lower minimum for our hotel reception - only $3000, compared to 7-10 thousand during peak times.

3. our own centerpieces - I've worked with florists, setting up wedding flowers actually, and I knew their kind of price tags would never work for me. $20 per table for 10-12 tables is my goal.

4. no DJ -  We're using a laptop +rented mixer and amp, which were amazingly cheap - only $20 to rent for a month.

5. the ebayed dress - my J. Crew wedding dress was only $60 from a bridal store that was going out of business.

these things allowed us to direct our cash where we needed it, which was mainly to the reception. we have nearly 100 guests and there was no getting around that, plus about 80% of them are out of town so we wanted to make sure the travel was worth their while.

good luck with everything!

I'm getting hitched too!

The date: March 15

Stuff being done by me:
STDs (done)
invites, (mocked up and in production this weekend)
programs, (have a layout in mind, just not complete yet)
placecards, (haven't touched this one yet)
favors (we're donating to the American Cancer Society, so these are little cards to let people know - what they'll look like yet, I don't know),
and music (laptop + mixer + amp, no DJ)

As a semi-practicing graphic designer, I've taken on all the paper projects with gusto -the centerpieces though . . . AAAAAGGGHHHH. Anyone have a kickass site for ideas? I'm trying to spend $20 or less per table and I got some amazing table runners from the dollar store, but I need tall vases, which are SO expensive, even at discount places it seems.

That looks FABULOUS.
How did you attach the feathers? Did you sew them?
