1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: PROJECT RUNWAY: Season 6 - Episode 10 - Official Craftster Discussion Thread on: November 02, 2009 09:55:50 PM
Been trying to figure out the pattern for Althea's sweater - I didn't like the tank top but the sweater looks cozy. Looks like one big piece with the long collar and edging at the sleeves kind of like simplicity 2560 but with much wider sleeves, longer main body and no bottom or sleeve ruffle. I've looked at the judging again and can't figure if the sleeve/body is one piece.

Any ideas?

Wow - that is so much work. You said you aged the craft foam you used to make your costume - how did you do that?  They look really good all together. How did you mkae the blue head gear?

That's really interesting to hear the background of your costume. I love the irridescent purple on the tentacles and that you could pose them - awesome. How long did it take you to plan/make your costume? It's really beautiful.

I love it - that "hair" hat is so creative - you rock. What a sweet costume.

Was that your old prom dress - what a cool way to remake it and have your daughter use it. I like the fabric additions and how it spins so well. Beautiful.

The look is really well done. The make up and masks are really cool. It's also great to have someone special to get excited about a project like this and be able to enjoy it together.

Thanks for all the nice comments! I did not realize how hard it would be to "wrap" it with the spider web - it didn't have as much coverage as I imagined. I had my daughter standing on a step stool holding it up while I wrapped. Her arms got tired out pretty quickly so I had to just go with it. It was still alot of fun being out and having people "get it."

I like your costumes! It's really nice to see your process and pattern how you made the costume. The fighting banana pic is priceless!

Very creative tailoring on the shirt/jacket and dress. It is scaled down to her size just perfect. And awesome styling on the hat/necklace!
10  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / wizard of Oz - Dorothy and the Twister on: November 01, 2009 02:37:14 PM
My daughter wanted to be Dorothy from the wizard of Oz this year because she saw the movie. I made her costume using a  simplicty pattern  4139 and stayed pretty true to the pattern.

I wanted to do a companion costume - I usually spend so much time on my daughters that I have no time for mine. Did not want to be tine man or the other characters. I was looking around the web and saw some storm/cloud costumes and it made me think of the twister in the movie - one of the scariest/best scenes. So I googled tornado costumes and did not come up with much.


Thought I could do better. I bought two yards of latch hook rug backing - stiff and not made of vinyl. I trimmed it and added velcro to hold it on. I mad arm holes and used straps. I bought halloween spider mesh, but not enough! I got 4 bags and could have used much more. I tied on things I found at Good will (little houses, a boat, a minature person on a bike) and borrowed doll furniture, lego trees and hot whell cars from my daughter. I put them on strings so they would move when I did.  Fun!
