Alright, I'll stop lurking. This forum is such an inspiration, and I admire the work that everyone posts here. Too cool.
So this is my first successful reconstruction. Go me.
Anyways, I was pretty wired one night, and was musing about Halloween costumes. I decided to dress up as a Gothic Lolita/Aristocrat (still deciding). So I hacked up a huge black t-shirt I got from Comic Con to make a 3 tiered skirt. Not a big fan of Saw- I haven't seen any of the movies. It's just when you're at a convention, you can't help but look for free stuff.
Here's the shirt:
And here's the skirt:
Here's me standing in front of my grimy bathroom mirror modeling the skirt.
And the tutorial I used:
I haven't decided if I'm going to gather the sides. And I'm planning to put some lace on the middle tier after I make a run to my local Michaels/Value Craft/JoAnn's.
It's not professional at all (there are so many mistakes), but at least it's decent.
Operation T-shirt to skirt = Success. Now I have to go about making a petticoat so the skirt will go poof! And I'm turning to the tutorials here. Go Craftster.
Thanks for viewing!
