1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Zombie Swap Rd. 2 Gallery on: March 29, 2011 05:07:29 PM
I received from Myrrh about a week and a half ago but I've been super busy with work so I'm just posting now. I got a really awesome package!

Firstly, she wrapped everything in bags with little "HAZARDOUS" and "CAUTION" and "INFECTED" warnings, SO CUTE. She also wrote me a really nice note explaining how the zombie infection on the west coast was getting pretty bad and that she had been minorly attacked and had an oozing wound!

She gave me two keepsake boxes, some brain hairclips that I had asked for, some zombie ribbon bows (so cute!) and some back up Plan Z poison in case of infection.


She also gave me two shirts, a tie-dye shirt to zombify myself and a shirt she zombified.


The pink shirt is my favorite! It's amazing that the back says "Don't do it." Seems fitting.


Thanks for such a great package! Hope you like yours!

Okay, so I totally had to sign in to Craftster and resurrect this thread, because someone totally ripped you off and is selling these through an infomercial as "Pajama Jeans"!  Cheesy  I wonder if it will be the next big thing?!?!

haha between pajama jeans and "jeggings", I think it is!! I've got to get back at my sewing machine and make myself a couple pairs more pairs (this pair hasn't fit in like .... 3 years!) to keep up with this stretchy revolution!

7  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Terminator on: November 03, 2010 06:54:00 PM
For one of my many HalloWEEK costumes, I decided to be a female version of Arnold's Terminator from the first movie, which my friends have renamed the terminatrix. I followed KlairedelysArt's tutorial on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pVDbc02-hoY&feature=related with a few modifications, wore black pants, a black tank top, combat boots and a black leather jacket.

8  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Zombie beauty pageant contestant for NYC Zombie Crawl 10/24/10 on: November 03, 2010 01:33:01 AM
I crawled with the NYC Zombie Crawl the Sunday before Halloween and wanted to share my costume. The theme was Zombie Beauty Pageant, so I decided to make my first zombie dress and try to look like a classy zombie.





I made the dress from a semi-thick white stretch jersey. I did not use a pattern but just kind of draped it since it was so stretchy. I sewed a tube of double thickness for the chest, then gathered it a little at the bust and added a long rectangle as a halter strap. I made a circle skirt for the bottom that I cut shorter in the front and longer in the back.

I zombified my dress by lighting it on fire about 8 times on my fire escape (ironic?), shredding the bottom a bit, slashing it a few places, and then attacking it with fake blood I made (white corny syrup, red food dye, chocolate sauce). I let it dry for a few days.

I did my zombie make up with a layer of gray body paint, black/purple/red around the eyes, black lines on the nose, black colored eyebrows, a big chunk of gore on my lower chin, and some random other spots of nasty skin and blood.









Happy HalloWEEK guys! Can't wait to see all of your costumes
9  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Def. Vvvombie - (n) zombie victim of a vampire bite (+ vampire victim tutorial) on: November 03, 2010 01:17:00 AM
For one of my Halloween costumes this year I decided to be a Vvvombie, a zombie that has been bitten by a vampire, and is now in the transformation process of becoming some hybrid monster that wants BRAAAAAINS, but is still an elegant, blood-thirsty member of high-life vampire society. My costume basically entailed a bloody shirt, a gray body, zombie eyes, chest scratches, neck vampire bites and wrist Twilight-like jaw imprints.







I bought a white tank top from H&M for $5 and cut it in to a crop top. I coated it with some fake blood that I mixed up (white corn syrup, red food dye, chocolate sauce) and let it dry for a day. I made sure to have some handprints from the attack, and blood on the neckline where I got bitten.

For the body/face painting, I did a sloppy base layer to get the undead, smudgy color with some light gray body paint. I then did the eyes with a combo of black, purple, pink, and red eye shadow, face paint and eyeliner. I outlined the nose with smudged black lines and went over the eyebrows in black. I also used liquid eyeliner to paint cracks. I put a little concealer on my lips and then a touch of coagulate blood dripping down from the nose. I used liquid latex and "Creepy Skin" to make fingernail scratches on my neck/chest that I then defined with some brown, black and red face paint as well as some coagulate blood.











For the vampire victim parts, I did two fang punctures on my neck and a big ol' wrist bite (with both top and bottom jaw imprints on either side of the wrist), and a hand bite. For both, I first used blue eyeliner to go over my veins and make them darker in the "affected" area.

For the fang punctures, I rolled out some creepy skin between my fingers, arranged it in a TINY doughnut shape, then used a flat edged tool to spread it onto my neck. I put some black face paint on the inside of the dougnut (the puncture site), painted bruising all around (yellow, brown, red, green face paint) by barely dabbing my fingers in color and kind of spreading it roughly, and then dripped some coagulate blood down it.

For the wrist bites, I used about 5 layers of liquid latex in a rough mouth shape. The rougher, the better, because it'll be a little teethier. I then painted it with black on the inside and brown on the outside to create a fake gradient of depth intensity where the teeth would have penetrated it. I then put bruising all around with the same colors/technique above, and then dabbed on some coagulate blood. The key for this one is making it darkkkkk.

Some action shots just for fun:





I miss HalloWEEK already!
10  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Terminatrix: terminator face on: November 03, 2010 12:49:51 AM
For one of my many HalloWEEK costumes, I decided to be a female version of Arnold's Terminator from the first movie, which my friends have renamed the terminatrix. I followed KlairedelysArt's tutorial on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pVDbc02-hoY&feature=related with a few modifications: I used about 6 layers of liquid latex (sometimes known as "flesh in a flask") instead of the scar putty (I applied it messily and spread it a bit to get the sloppy burn look, but also tried to layer it up near the "metal" to make it look like the metal was under the skin), and I used only face paint, no eye shadow. I used Ben Nye black and white that I mixed to make the various shades of gray. I'm somewhat disappointed with my burnt, scalded skin (not 3D enough, not red/irritated enough) and my lack of a red contact, but this was the least effort I've ever put into a Halloween costume so I'm still pretty happy with it. I wore black pants, a black tank top, combat boots and a black leather jacket. Easy and fun
