1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Awesome gift baskets? on: November 19, 2008 09:54:51 AM
I used a large red mixing bowl as the basket and for filler I pulled all the tape out of an old VHS and stuffed it around the items.  It looks great!

Using the tape is such a good idea!

That's brilliant! I loved that video game growing up. Nicely done!

They look adorable! Great job rounding up all the parts - I second the sentiment that cricket bats are hard to come by in the US.

I love all things Muppets, so I decided to do a Kermit the Frog pumpkin this year. It was a pretty simple pattern other than rigging up a way to get the pupils of his eyes to look right without any visible support. (Invisible thread FTW!)


I also did a Derek Jeter pumpkin, because I'm a huge baseball nerd. It's not the greatest likeness but hey, three people recognized it! (I did Conan O'Brien last year and no one recognized him!)


Thanks for looking!

GOB! "A trick is something a whore does for money... or candy!"

Haha. Great shirt! I love that it's so simple yet recognizable. On a semi-related note, I got to ride a segway last summer and totally channeled GOB. It was awesome.

I don't know if you're looking for a character from a kid's book, or from something more adult. You could go as a femme fatale from a detective story - something out of Raymond Chandler or Dashiell Hammett.

Maybe if you wanted to go as something from a children's book, you could be Harriet the Spy. Wear glasses and didn't she wear a red sweatshirt? And of course carry a notebook to write secrets about people!
9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: gift for a close guy friend on: October 09, 2008 08:28:26 PM
How about making or embellishing a guitar strap? Maybe you could do his name in funky letters on it or something?

I was inspired by a combo of my love of flight of the conchords as well as the movie "almost famous", and i've decided that for this halloween I want to be an air hostess in the 60s

You could also be a part time model... lol Love it! I would check out thrift stores for some 60s-style dresses that you could modify, and don't forget a pair of wings like these http://www.drexelantiques.com/after4750/4912deltawings.jpg!
