1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Help with Greek Goddess costume on: September 07, 2007 08:47:03 PM
I am hoping to be a Greek Goddess for Halloween this year.  I would like to make a dress like the one below, but without the hangy-things.  I have a white queen-sized bed sheet set that I think I'll use, and I think I'll just leave it plain white.  Any idea how to make the dress?  I'd like to avoid buying a pattern if possible...

Gahh!  beedogs.com is so cute!  Too bad my dog HATES wearing any clothing... we could have had matching costumes!

The tape thing might be my best bet.  I was also thinking of using duct tape to block off stripes and spray painting black (on a yellow shirt, of course).  From what I've read on different posts, spray paint works pretty well on t-shirts.  And I really only need to last for a day.
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Bee costume question on: October 17, 2006 11:54:20 AM
I'm thinking of being a bee for Halloween.  If I buy a plain yellow t-shirt, what would be the best way to add black stripes to it? 

Fabric paint?  Sew on some fabric stripes?  Tape? 

Thanks!!!

My mom bought me one of these for a shower gift.  I didn't like it either.  I found that the pasta stuck together when cooking, and some parts end ed up overdone and mushy, while some were still crunchy.  Stick to a pot.

I've also seen it called "millefioiri" so maybe try googling that.  Good luck!

I'm afraid I don't have much to add, but I thought I'd let you know that lilies do not work well as floating centerpieces- they just don't lie flat.  Alstromeria would work okay, and they have kind of a lily look, You can also buy single blooms of orchids, which would look really pretty.

Alstroemeria will work perfectly, since they are in my bouquet too!  (There's pink asiatic lilies, pink alstro, white roses, and pink waxflower.)

Thanks to everyone for the awesome ideas!!  I think I might have to try the Plexiglas thing.

I found the picture on weddingchannel.com.  Here's thew link:

http://wedding.weddingchannel.com/contentsets/flowershow.asp?vhl_uid=10422&prev_item=400016364

Unfortunately, it doesn't give a vendor name or anything.  The dishes don't need to be that exact shape either, square dishes would work fine.  I was originally thinking of those glass Pyrex baking dishes, but those can be pretty expensive. 

And I haven't talked to a florist yet.  But that's a good idea.

Hey everyone,

I'm thinking of doing centerpieces like this for my wedding:



I'll probably do a combination of floating flowers (pink lilies and white roses if I can) and floating candles.  I have no idea what to use for the container, though.  I'm not too picky about the color, it doesn't have to be clear, I just want the right shape.  Any ideas??

Thanks!!!

Mandy

Holy crap, those are beautiful!!  I love them!  And I agree with you on the Jordan almond thing...chocolate almonds are 100x better

If you don't mind me asking, how much did you pay for those boxes?
