I didn't stumble upon this thread until today and looking through my halloween pictures I realized I didnt have any good pictures of my costume. So here are a few from the halloween weekend and if you piece them together you will get an idea of how it all came together. I also put it on my dress form to show (at least partially) what it looked like. Essentially my costume is made up of a handful of peacock feathers, a one piece bathing suit turned inside out with green and turquoise boas stitched around the edges, a skirt that was originally made for a tinkerbell costume, turquoise footless tights, and my green thrift store shoes. Also a mask that drove me crazy the majority of the evening.
i LOVE louise brooks!!! what a fabulous idea! i would definitely go with a pale face and black lipstick [i'm sure in reality they wore red, but it always looks black]. don't forget to powder all other exposed skin as well!
paint your face and skin in a neutral gray color so it looks like you are in black and white. i was thinking of doing a black and white 50's girls.
where did you learn the coptic stitch? im attempting to make one of these, and ive never used it before. how did you incorporate the album with all of it? i found a tutorial that uses 6 signatures, did you use this and counted the front and back as a signature?
I collected rocks when I was a child and there are a few I would like to knit into a necklace similar to this. They don't have holes, though, so is it possible to use the wire as a little cage for the rocks? I've never attempted anything like this before!
this was actually the first thing i have ever done like this, but i think you would be able to wrap the wire around the rocks a few times each way, and they would probably stay. ...just an idea though
