1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Re: Tobi Mask: fastening to the head. on: January 28, 2013 12:24:36 PM
How about attaching it to a skullcap/beanie sort of thing? That ought to hold the weight very well, and be comfortable.

Thanks for the help corchen!  The more suggestions and feedback I get, the better.  The cap thing is a great idea for some designs I've been thinking of trying.
2  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Tobi Mask: fastening to the head. on: January 27, 2013 05:49:44 PM
Hi guys, I made this Tobi mask last Halloween, and it was so much work to make but in the end looked so cool I thought I'd make a few more.



The mask weights about 6oz. so it needs a good way of fastening it to the head.  For myself I just glued on a piece of fabric from an old t-shirt, using my own head to measure.  I can't really use this method on an item I might send to someone across the country who I can't measure.  Plus slipping my head up through the bottom is tight and tricky and still felt a little loose.

I plan to line the inside of the mask with felt too, but here is the strap I have on my own mask, the 'prototype', if you will.  The fabric is hot-glued on and it feels like it makes a pretty good bond and it hasn't peeled.  That's a legitimate way of attaching it, right?



I thought about attaching a piece of fabric on each side that will velcro together in the back.  That would make it easier to put on, and make it more one-size-fits-all.  Would the fuzzy side be wider so that the hook side can be placed along it for different sizes?  Does velcro have a pretty good grip for something that weights 6oz.?

Key chains are a really great idea, thanks.  That helps open the door for some other ideas too.

I'm still thinking about the green paper.  It looks like the purple paper that I have is twice as much as the green paper.  The stack is HUGE.  Uh-oh...

I have a drawer full of fur.  It's been suggested I try to make stuffed monsters out of them.  They're mostly fur scraps from someone using them to make costumes, so I have all sorts of colors.  I suppose I could try to make at least a critter or two out of them.  And I could use even more of the fur to stuff them with.

What else could I use it for?

I also have like 500 sheets of green paper and half as many sheets of purple left over from making wedding invites.

That's very cool! What is she holding in her left hand?

That's the vial that holds the shrinking potion.  The tags say, "Drink me".  Take just a tiny sip!

That's an awesome apron, for some reason I like the reverse side better because it's more retro with the color choices and it just looks like a frame straight out of an old cartoon, I can hear the psychadelic sound effects when I look at it.
7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: What is it? (details about this sewing machine?) on: May 01, 2008 09:03:25 AM
Just make sure you're doing your search using the machine's serial number and not the serial number of the motor for the machine.  Sometimes the serial number for the motor is in a more obvious place and the number for the model is more hidden.  I had that happen to me.  I think I was able to find the machine model inside of the underworkings (where you thread the bobbins together underneath).  I think the machine manual search websites explain about that, so that'll help.

Wow, really?  Cool!  I will check it out!  Thanks!
9  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / 100 Things Theme Art Challenge. on: April 11, 2007 02:33:02 PM
Well, this isn't really a challenge, but that is what this list of themes here is called.  I thought I'd show it here.  I was thinking of doing it.  I saw it on someone else's blog but I don't know who originally created this list because it's been around.

I haven't decided yet whether I want to use it for a series of black and white or color illustrations, or a set of Artist Trading Cards (which I've never done but it looks like a neat and fun thing to do!), or maybe a massive set of 100x100 avatars for myself.  This is a project that I think would be really fun to do.

I've heard that most people only end up doing as many as 10.  Reaching as many as 50 would be quite a feat.  Or even 100!
