1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help with silly Kuroshitsuji hats. on: April 07, 2011 04:42:19 AM
Very little to add to above reply
This link shows how to make block a round hat from felt:

This explains how to make a tricorn hat. It shouldn't be hard to adapt to a bicorn, ie make one less point.

With that regal tilt to the head and the lovely purple, I think I'd give The Empress a large updo in ivory or white, maybe a la Marie Antoinette. And then give her a tiara fixed around the height.

I'm back, having dealt with as much of the batshit crazy as I could. Took a much needed day off from everything for my own mental health today, but will update re package tomorrow.

Just wanted to keep people informed

Huge apologies to my partner and everyone.

Today i was felled by a migraine ( very rare for me) and made no progress in my crafting.

And this weekend i have to spend with my family coming in from as far away as the USA. My Great Aunt, the self appointed Family matriarch, is rapidly getting past the point where she can live at home, especially as she refuses to accept any nursing care. So we are gathering to convince her that she must either accept carers coming in to her apartment or move to a care home.

now i'm thinking about it, that is probably the stressor that resulted in the migraine.
I'll update on Sunday when i return.

Huge Apologies, especially to my partner. A migraine prevented me putting the final touches to my package today.
It's probably down to stress as tomorrow i have to travel north  to meet my Dad who is flying in from the US and other relatives, as this weekend is being spent  trying to persuade the family Matriarch, my Great Aunt, that she must either accept some help at home or move into a care home. i'll spare you all the unpleasant details, but i'm not expecting it to be pretty.

I (and my whole family) have had some kind of virus that has persisted for most of a month.
Fortunately we are now all well, and I am back to crafting with a vengence.
I have completed the poppet, have all the supplies and such, but still have a whole outfit to make, and ends to tie up on another swap due the same day.
Hopefully I will send out on time, but it may take an extra couple of days. Sorry!

My family including myself have been "Mostly Dead" all month. Thankfully, copious doses of Miracle Max's pills, with liberal chocolate coatings courtesy of Valerie, have led to a slow but sure recovery.
So I am now happily back to crafting, delighted my final supply has arrived and pleased that I planned so carefully before falling ill.
The deadline is still achievable, but i dont want to send an inferior package so I may not get my parcel out till monday. Sorry!

I just had a moment of sheer panic while searching for previous princess bride crafts on Craftster.

Could I really have misspelled something on my first completed item?

So I checked carefully and am very relieved to find I was right. but I think I will be checking carefully before making things in future.
I'm now going to watch the film (again) for inspiration and to calm down a little.

oh, and Feast your Eyes, that bracelet is incredible.

Eyelids and eye lashes are always fiddly. Allow yourself lots of time and have patience. This is one part of poppets where rushing is always a bad idea. I always want at least three hands to coordinate it.

In my experience, you need good lighting (think daylight), the right glue (holds well, drys fast but not so fast you cant manoevre pieces around ) and a cocktail stick to hold the eyelashes down at any point that pops away( and to apply thin lines of glue precisely). Suncatcher's eyes are painted on the underside, so once in place the colour doesn't scratch off. Not everyone tucks the pieces under. If your fabric doesn't fray, gluing it firmly to the eyeball and maybe leading the top edge on to the face and glueing it down works too. Every person and every poppet finds the variation of the technique that works eventually.
