Wow that is neat and unusual!  What does the back look like?  Is it one solid piece, or can you see the individual squares?  I love I Spy quilts, and this looks like a much quicker way to make one.  Great job and thank you for sharing!   Smiley

25  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: tired of the sexy-everything costumes? on: October 18, 2008 09:17:34 PM
In answer to the thread's Subject title: YES.  But then again I've only been looking at kids' costumes.
Short on crafting time, I thought I'd make very simple costumes for my kids, then had a moment of panic and decided to just "see what was out there".  Went to a Spirit store for the first time, nearly cried out of frustration and disgust, hit up a thrift store and bought part of a ladybug costume (will craft the rest) for my 2yo daughter.  My 3yo son will be a dragon/dinosaur made from a sweatsuit and scrap fabric.  I didn't feel that the boys' costumes were over-sexified, but the little girl ones... HOLY COW.  I even saw strappy platform shoes included with short-skirted outfits and my stomach flipped.  What is going on??  Where did all of the cute, age-appropriate costumes go??  We always made ours growing up, but I still remember lots of animal costumes being in the stores.  Now the only animal (or at least non-trashy) ones are for babies, although I did see a pretty good Yoda costume that I almost re-interpreted. 
I've noticed the gore factor has gone up quite a bit with store-bought "decorations", too.  Seems manufacturers feel they need to be more "intense" to get sales up, but I think it should be just the opposite, at least for kids.  Keep it cute, keep it safe, and keep the slutty kids' costumes out of the stores.  Sends the completely wrong message and takes the fun out of "dressing up" IMHO.

Gorgeous styling, clever shaping, well photographed, well made, FANTASTIC!!  I personally find it hilarious that a fellow Richmonder is modeling for FL tomatoes when we're this close to Hanover.   Wink 
Seriously, amazing job on the dress, and the necklace you've paired with it is its absolutely perfect compliment.  I love the final photo, and best of luck in the competition!!  Great work again.

Gorgeous.  Love the colors, textures, especially the sequins (and I'm not usually one for sequins)- they go so perfectly with the rest of the scarf!  I was sitting down to find some crochet ideas, but this looks almost instant-gratification... pulling out yarn and making a Rapunzel Scarf instead.  Thank you for posting this.  Well done scarf, too!
Thank you also to the PP about the "wingspan" measuring tip- I'll be using that and estimating longer/shorter for presents.  Another great idea!

Speechless.  Shocked I saw the pic, realized what it was, and just about fell off my seat!  This is priceless!!  For me the slogan is great, but like I think someone else said it's really the rick rack that sets it off.  Especially contrasted with the shiny mother-of-pearl snaps.  Very well done, well-fitted, and hysterical to boot!  Great job!
