Hee hee hee, I'm liking where this discussion is going.

Thanks for the comments!  I'm going to try to make another skirt out of some sparkly red stretchy denimy stuff I found on sale (it looks better than it sounds) and the Sew-U book.  We'll see if the dingleballs work with that too!

Wish me luck!

Thanks, you guys!   I feel so happy now.

I actually used the book's directions to make the eyes--I used Sculpey polymer clay.  There are also directions to make the weapons (scythe, spear) too.  I had some of my students make them toward the end of the year, if they were finished with their 8th grade projects (they made many jokes about my sweatshop, but they were happy to accept a creature).  I hot-glued the eyes on, but I've used safety eyes too.  Medusa has 9mm safety eyes.

I love this.  His costume is fantastic.  How did you make the microphone?

I've been making these from the book "Creepy Cute Crochet" and raffling them off to my students (I teach middle school, and although I never thought 12-year-olds would openly express a preference for crocheted amigurumi, I was wrong wrong wrong, and happy to be so!).  The Day of the Dead couple I'm giving to my coworker, who teaches Spanish Immersion.

Hope you like!

Well, I took a sewing class at the nearby university craft center, and the instructor freaked me out so much I never went back and never finished my skirt.  That was in 2006.  This summer I had loads of time on my hands, so thought: why not dig out unfinished skirt?   I managed to put in a zipper--I'm rilly rilly proud.

I trimmed it with what I call dingleballs and the disapproving lady at the craft store calls ball fringe, but truly, I don't see much of a difference there.  My facial expression is very weird, sorry about that.

Hope you like it!  Comments appreciated!

I would completely make this, so if you post a tute or are selling the pattern, LET ME KNOW!  It is abfab, and hilarious to boot.

I'm knitting this now, and I'm wondering about the lace pattern--I have a really stupid question, can someone help me?    Huh  Do you knit the pattern as written, or repeat the red-bordered part in the lace chart?  I am not coming out with even stitches in any event--that is, it doesn't end perfectly with my 4 st st stitches on either side of the lace.  If anyone could help, I'd be sooooooo grateful.
