1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Lego Hockey Player! on: November 05, 2009 07:58:51 PM
I decided I wanted to make a Lego minifig costume based off of this post on Make: http://blog.makezine.com/archive/2006/10/homemade_shaun_of_the_dea.html. He didn't post instructions on how he made it, so we just studied lots of pictures and figured it out!

It took me, my husband and my father 23 hours total to make it.


Version 1.0 of the head


Almost all put together, just needed to be painted:


The head is made of styrofoam we hot glued together (first cutting a hole for my head in the bottom layers). The chest area is made of foamcore and the back is a stretchy fabric I dyed blue and attached with velcro. The pants are made out of polyurethane foam hot glued together and held up by some rainbow suspenders my dad had from back in the 70's. The arms are controlled inside with PVC piping and the outside is made with mailing tubes.

One of the Nashville Predators (our NHL team) players is David Legwand. My husband came up with calling my minifig Lego-wand. We wanted people to not just see the 11 and Legowand and miss the "o". So I put a dash in the name. The dash is a painted Lego brick.

Thanks! I went to the Predators costume contest before the game tonight and got first place in the adult contest! I won a $500 gift card to Best Buy and got to go out on the ice during the 2nd intermission.

People from the front office also tracked me down and want me to wear the costume to the players practice on Monday and I'll get to meet David Legwand! So it's turned out FANTASTIC!

I decided I wanted to make a Lego minifig costume based off of this post on Make: http://blog.makezine.com/archive/2006/10/homemade_shaun_of_the_dea.html. He has some more pictures in his flickr account and luckily had pictures of the inside of his costume which helped us figure out the arms.


I decided to go as a Nashville Predators player. I'm fully encased in the costume.

And the back of the costume:

It's made of styrofoam (head), foam core (chest), mailing tubes (arms) with PVC piping to control movement inside, and polyurethane foam for the legs held up by some SWEET rainbow suspenders my dad had from the 70's.

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Being sick=being a necklace making machine! on: May 25, 2008 09:50:03 PM
I woke up Saturday and thought my scratchy throat was just allergies. But then I woke up this morning and realized that it was just being sick. Sad

So I've been watching a lot of cable tv, napping and making necklaces.

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: thanks for breaking up with me, here's yr scarf! [DANICA] on: December 03, 2007 11:11:31 AM
I did this pattern this weekend with a dish cloth! It was actually a lot easier than it looked when I first checked out the pattern. I think you did a great job of knitting it up. I think it looks good with your hair, but if you don't like it you could give it to someone else or charity like everyone else is suggesting.

We have some just like those! My husband's grandmother made them. Our dogs knock them off the tree each year though cause we forget and put them close to the floor. So then we have to pick up sequins, beads and pins all the time. This year we gotta remember to put them up higher.
7  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: 50+ Wash Cloths-along on: November 28, 2007 07:38:43 AM
OK. I just started lurking on this thread. Since I am so late, and I know others are too......I'm going to try this 50+washcloth along for 2008 to be completed by 2009. Should I start a new thread? can I use your links? Or should this one just continue? Is anyone else interested? I'm totally addicted!

I'm interested! I'd really like to try out the different patterns and found this a bit too late.

10  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Cool! My grandma helped me last night on: November 16, 2007 06:44:56 AM
I'm originally a knitter, but I've been wanting to try crochet. I got some books, cause that's how I learned to knit. But the books I had just weren't helping me enough. My grandma is in town helping take care of my dad (he fell off a roof) so last night I went over there and she helped me learn the basics.

I kept holding the hook like a knitting needle and she was teaching me to hold it like a chopstick, which was easier to do for me. But I'd forget and one point I held it like a knitting needle and she smacked my hand! lol
