1  Belated Halloween Goodness! in Halloween Costumes by kabOOm on: November 30, 2007 06:41:36 PM
About a month before Halloween, a good friend of mine IMd me saying something like this  "i've decided i want to be juliet (angel costume from the baz luhrman version) for halloween. but all of the costumes suck. CAN YOU MAKE IT?" Of course I responded with a resounded "well, i guess i can try". So we went to the Goodwill to look for nightgowns or t shirts that could be reconstructed. We found a really good night gown to use for the skirt and got some t shirts for the top, but I decided to just use a wifebeater. I made her wings out of feathers, cardboard, ribbon, and tape. I decided that I wanted to be a faerie, and made my wings out of coat hangers and tights. The dress I bought at goodwill for $5, and the petticoat was my mothers.


Me on the left, my friend on the right. See the girl in the background? I made her shirt, it's a green tunic for her Maid Marion costume.


A close up of my wings.

A very happy Halloween indeed!

2  Necktie Party Dress! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by kabOOm on: November 30, 2007 06:15:35 PM
Hi guys!

I've had this idea for a while, at least since grade school, only until recently did I actually execute it. I took 18 of my dad's old ties (with his permission of course) and 2 of my friend's dad's ties (with his permission too), sewed them together, hemmed the top and added a halter neck (another tie). The thing in my right hand is a clutch. I wore this to an ex-friends bat mitzvah and for an English presentation - everyone loved it and I am so proud of it. It's my baby =^.^=  The shoes are from Urban Outfitters: http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/catalog/productdetail.jsp;jsessionid=947919412929AE2248EFB7B5539B985F.app11-node8?itemdescription=true&itemCount=60&id=13226725&parentid=W_SHOES_HEELSWEDGES&sortProperties=+product.marketingPriority,-product.startDate&navCount=3&navAction=poppush&color=46

5  Dolphins, and tigers, and lambs (and more) oh my! (VERY IMG heavy) in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by kabOOm on: November 05, 2006 01:21:06 PM
In 3rd-5th grade at my school I did this lunch club (a club that took place during recess) called Stuffed Animals, where we made - you guessde it - stuffed animals. (They get better as you scroll down)


A whale/dolphin (if you turn it upside down it's a dolphin)


A bear (it used to play "You Are My Sunshine" when you squeezed it's tummy)


A cat


An elephant


A duck



A horse, but it looks more like a dog



An actual dog!



A tiger



A lamb



A polar bear

By the way, these are NOT my patterns - I just sewed them up.

Comments/critiscims (sp?) welcomed,

6  Marie Antoinette Wig in Halloween Costumes by kabOOm on: November 05, 2006 01:10:19 PM
For Halloween this year I was Marie Antoinette. I didn't feel like buying a 20-30 dollar wig so I made my own. Out of magazines and a paper bag.

The paper bag was the base of the wig, and I rolled up magazines into cilinders, glued them on there, and spray painted it. (no, I did not make the dress)

Thanks for looking,
Kristin
P.S. Please excuse the funny look on my face Tongue
