1  Re: 2006 Completed Costumes Scrapbook! (completed project pictures & links go here!) in Halloween Costumes by karmikins on: November 12, 2006 10:05:50 AM
I didn't really make my costume using anything but up (as in makeup--wow, lame joke, I know). Anyway, here's my costume this year (I hope the photos aren't too large):

I got SO many comments walking in the hallway at school (mainly because we weren't allowed to dress up at all, but I always do my own thing), such as: "Oh my God, did you see that girl?!", "YEAH! That's the way to do it!", and "Need a Band-Aid?!", and even "Wow! I thought that was real!" (but hello, people. It's Halloween...). Everyone from school to the party store to the movie theatre wanted to know if I did it myself, and how (and yes, of COURSE I did it myself, using liquid latex, tissue paper, greasepaint, a tolerance to pain, and patience--the last of which I have little of).

Out of that whole day, the two things that got me most were: I was at an intersection and a guy rolled down his window and asked me if I was okay and needed a bandage, and getting dresscoded in homeroom (although none of the other faculty/staff minded--they actually supported it).

I think I did much better in contrast to last year:

Although I did just realise that I forgot to include a stethoscope as part of my costume this year--what a shame. And yes, I was "Dr. Karma" two years in a row (it bored me, too)--but this year I was told by some fellow zombies that I HAD to do it.

2  Window Treatment? in Discussion and Questions by karmikins on: November 12, 2006 09:49:57 AM
I need some original suggestions for a window treatment for this window:

The measurements are a very rough approximation of (I don't have anything to measure with right now) 4 by 6 feet. But I'm having trouble because of it's depth from the wall of about 2 inches:

I'm planning on doing this room with a bright, retro, almost kitschy mood. Something like what you'd see back in the 70's with funky designs, but also moderinsed with sleek, abstract, one-of-a-kind furniture. The colour scheme will be oranges, greens, and browns mainly, with splashes of other bright colours to keep it from being too frumpy.

The inspiration comes from a bag I made using vintage 70's fabric, but I don't have enough left to to curtains (I don't think, anyway):

(This is the best picture I have right now of the fabric--and you can't even see the brown!)

If you have ANY idea, help clue me in?

I was just telling my friend the other day how I wanted a boyfriend who would dress as Hunter for Halloween. Can you say 'envy'?
