I know that you're all a crafty and smart bunch, so I need a bit of help: This year I'm going to Disney World with some family for their Mickey's Not So Spooky Halloween parade and everyone is supposed to dress up. So I've decided to be a superhero, but I want to be an original one. The only problem is, I can't think of any ideas for what my costume should look like/who my superhero should be, and I thought ya'll could help. Any ideas? The costume should be able to pack well, be good for the heat (it's going to be Florida in September, I'm assuming it'll still be quite warm) and something that will be comfortable wearing for around six hours. I'm completely stumped.
Here's some things I can definitely work with: Masks (adults are allowed to wear them there) A cape Really bright colors
i did this when the first xmen movie came out, and kept it for quite a while because i loooooved it.
my hair is nearly black, and it was very difficult to get it that light. i went to the local beauty supply store and bought hair bleach (a blue powder that you mix with a high volume developer), used a regular highlighting cap, and bleached it like mad until all the color was gone.
if you want it to be more gray than white, you can either buy a tiny bottle of gray-ish colored hair dye (that didnt work so well for me for some reason). OR, you can buy some purple hair dye, if its left on bleached hair for a very short period of time it will turn it a gray-ish color, but you have to watch it very carefully and rinse immediately when the color comes in or you will have purple hair.
you can get all of the things you need at a beauty supply store, and they should be knowledgeable enough to help if you have any other questions.
hope that was helpful!
ps. this is my first post on here and im not sure if i did it right
Yeah, you did it right, good job! So you just left the bleach on your hair until it turned white? I want it a white color, but I'm afraid it'll turn a yellowish, because every time I've ever used a home high-lighting kit, it's turned my hair yellow. Do you suggest any type of brand of bleach to use? Or anyone else on here that may have done white in their hair?
Hey ya'll, this question may have already been asked, but seriously, there's like, 355 pages so I didn't get the chance to really go through them all. lol Anyway, I've been wanting to dye my hair like Rogue from X-Men for about the past year and a half now, but I'm not quite sure how to go about it. For those of you who don't know what or who I'm talking about, this is a photo of how I want my hair:
My hair is naturally a red color, but it's washing out from a dark brown/black that I dyed it earlier last year, and I plan on dying it dark again. I just like myself better with dark hair. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone had ever bleached only parts of their hair white before, or had someone else do it, and what you did it with?
I love the skirt, I would make one for myself only a little bit longer if I had the right stuff. I think the lace is pretty, but the chains are just fun. Very well done, I can just imagine it with boots. Uber cute.
It took a while for the photos to load on my computer, so I decided to scroll down and read everyone's comments while I waited. When I scrolled back up I expected a nice pair of shoes, but I didn't realize they were going to be that cute. Good luck with finding a paint sealer, those are super-freakin-fantastic.
I also have been wanting a pair of these boots but would not spend that much money on a single pair of shoes. Also, I have larger calves and so they don't always work out for me, but this is a brilliant idea. I'm so excited now!
YAY! rmtndew, it's your forum now!!! I can't wait to see everyone's completed costume!!! How are you thinking of creating yours?? Pics galore after Halloween
I'm going to a hot dog roast thing at my cousin's house, we usually have a huge Halloween party at our house every year, but alas, we're doing yard work and there's no way we can have it here. Anyway, no one but the kids are dressing up, so I've decided just to go in jeans and a long sleeved shirt that's that blue-green color in peacock feathers. I'm going to wear my peacock earrings and I printed off some pictures of peacock feathers and used the tute from here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=45717.30 but instead of putting them on earring hooks, I punched holes in them. I'm going to fix my hair so that it's sticking up on top, like it's feathering out, and then I'm going to put bobby pins through the holes in the feather things I made to make it look as though they're part of my hair. But I'm really going to play up the makeup, though, that's what I'm excited about. I just realized how very long this is so I'm going, but I'm excited about seeing everyone's photos, I might have some up Sunday as the party's tomorrow. Good luck everyone!
Those are the earrings that I have! After reading this post again, I have decided that I'm going to be a peacock as well, I'm just too in love with the idea of the feathers and the makeup. I'm going for a more causal look as I don't think anyone else is really dressing up, but I think it'll be fun. I know this isn't my forum, but I'm loving all of the pictures being posted. Now I'm so excited!
