1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / cosplay - Sailormoon! on: April 09, 2007 10:17:55 PM
I'm getting a BIG head-start on next year's SakuraCon...

<IMG src= "http://www.reeny.org/SMpics/princess-serena34.jpg">

I want to go as Sailormoon in the final battle.  Little things like the sword and angel wings are no problem, but the dress is going to be a challenge...

Here are so more pictures to give you an idea.

The last picture was taken from a personal website, but it was the only picture I could find with the back of the dress.

Could anyone recommend patterns?  Or would it be more efficient to buy a pre-existing dress (probably wedding or bridesmaid) and alter it?  The part I'm most concerned about is the ring of gold circles.

Thanks so much!
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Iz the wiz on: June 25, 2006 02:09:11 PM

I have no idea if that picture link works.  I posted it on myspace, and it was okay there....But anyway, this is a hat I made for my friend Israel.  He wanted a hat in the shape of a fish, but I had no idea to go about it.  Then I came across some baby alpaca yarn, and I just had to make the hat out of that instead.  It doesn't look like a fish, but I think he'll like it.  Grin
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / knitted skirt on: March 19, 2006 11:17:01 PM
Is there a certain formula for knitting a skirt?  I read about a pi formula (doubling stitches every so often, or something like that) and that didn't work out so great.  Any other suggestions?  Thank you!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / one shoulder sweaters on: March 19, 2006 11:15:54 PM
Does anyone have suggestions for a one shoulder sweater?  Something like "New York City Lights" from Berroco yarns, but with more shaping.  Thanks so much!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / what to do with this yarn? on: March 14, 2006 09:11:57 PM
I have cream Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick and some crazy, variegated pink yarn.  They look so good together, but what do I make?  The gauge comes out as 2 stitches = 1 inch on size seventeen needles.
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / I have stuff - what to make of them? on: March 02, 2006 08:53:18 PM
Lots of the stuff I have lying around are tight tee-shirts my aunt bought for me, under the mistaken impression that I was a size 0.

Anyway, I don't know what to do with them.  Some are super cute and I want to make them into something.  Any suggestions?

Best book ever.  Grin  At least ten projects that don't require sewing.  Here is one of them:

<IMG src= "http://pics-06.hi5.com/userpics/906/141/141060906.img.jpg">

Note of some warning: must have a very baggy t-shirt for this.  The one I used was loose on the bottom, which came out great.  The top was kinda tight, though.  I might cut off the little strips so it can be a deep V-neck shirt.

So what do you think?  Roll Eyes
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / so lost! on: November 28, 2005 12:00:46 AM
I'm at a loss for ideas for my knitted corset/tank top.  The back is the part with all the lacing and stuff.  The front is pretty plain, and I don't like it that way.
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / short row heel on: November 27, 2005 01:15:11 AM
I'm knitting the toe-up pattern from Knitty called Lolita Legs.  The directions are fine until it comes to the heel: "Do a short-row heel".  What is she talking about?!
