1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / How to make gigantic floofy drawstring pants on: December 24, 2006 10:37:30 AM
I'm thinking about doing a cosplay of Vivi from Final Fantasy 9. He has really, really puffy pants. I'm thinking of even doing them bloomer-like with elastic at the ankles to accentuate the poofy.

Can anyone reccomend a pattern or how to change a pattern so I can get me some poofy pants? Smiley Thank you!
2  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Converses reconstructed into slip ons on: December 19, 2006 02:33:32 PM
I hate throwing away my old Converses. They always carry so many memories. These are from the 8th grade. Notice all the painting and the Sharpie on the sides.

Since they had bunches of holes in them and were otherwise unfit to actually wear, I decided to tear them up and make them into something new- slip ons.

They're constructed entirely with hot glue, though, so I don't know how they'll hold up. We'll see; I'm wearing them out tonight.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How to make a petticoat? on: January 23, 2005 07:35:41 PM
I'm making an EGL costume for an anime convention and it most definitely requires  a very full petticoat.
I've googled "make crinoline petticoat" over and over, but I can't find any tutorials. And I don't wanna buy one because they are either too expensive or only in non-plus sizes. Would any of you be able to help me?

Much thanks in advance,
Shrink

Yay. This bag was made from duct tape, laminate paper, and exactly 22 Pokemon cards.

It closes with a small binder clip because I couldn't find anything else.

Comments, please.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / t-shirt into "fabulized" button up which reminds me of some disco thing. on: August 25, 2004 05:38:52 PM
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v94/shrinkwrap/P8250113.jpg
This shirt looks huge on my table, man. It's like...humongus. And I can't spell that word.

I sort of ripped this idea off of Petrifiera's kickass awesome shirt...
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=11897.0

Hers is awesome-fabulous, mine's kind of colorful gay guy fabulous. And the shirt I took the collar and buttons off of either looked like a disco club floor or a blue brick wall.
(O_o)

And the shirt is from a performing group I'm in called People International, Inc. (PII)
And since I just told you that, I'm going to plug it.:p

www.peopleinternational.org

There's a picture of me on there somewhere looking all fat at age twelve. (>.<)
But anyway, we're ALWAYS looking for new members! We're friendly. We won't bite, I promise.<3
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / black and navy blue boatneck Hanson teeshirt ^^ (Yes, Hanson still exists.^^) on: August 14, 2004 02:06:18 PM
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v94/shrinkwrap/hansonshirt.jpg

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!111111111111111111111 ITZZ HANSON OMG OMGZZZ!!!11

Okay, now that that's over, I'll talk about my shirt. I think this one's one of the most complicated that I've done. It started as a t-shirt in 2001 that I got from my first Hanson concert. I was significantly larger at that time and this was the only design I liked. At that time, I could fit snugly into an XL, but the shirt is a L. So about a month after the concert it was turned into a pillowcase in my room. The bottom was open, secured with some string tied around the longer bottom part.

Today, I found the pillowcase again and thought it would be cute as a boatneck...so I cut open the top and cut a slit through the middle and sewed that up and I cut armholes. The sleeves are from a torn up Simple Plan t-shirt that I got back when I actually liked Simple Plan. (Finally put it to a good use.^^) So, I sewed those on, blah blah... So yeah. My Hanson t-shirt pillowcase thing got a sleeve transplant and some extra stuff taken off. Yay.

I think I'll wear it to their concert this month.^__^

Comments, please.^^
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / hippie/punky flare jeans with Dir en grey lyrics on: August 09, 2004 12:38:38 PM
<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v94/shrinkwrap/dirpants1.jpg">

I've had these pants for a *really* long time. I think I've had them for about 5 years now... and before I did anything, they were *so* dorky and plain. They still have an elastic band waist without a zipper and all, but at least now they have more flair. ^_^
And I can just wear a skirt over it so no one will know I'm wearing dorky 5th grader jeans.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v94/shrinkwrap/dirpants2.jpg">

Heh, the lyrics are....profane and obscure-like so I just won't wear them on the days that I have Japanese class. (heh)

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v94/shrinkwrap/dirpants3.jpg">

And there's a pink spider climbing out of the knee hole. ^_^ Yay.

Comments?
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / old jeans into long rainbowy skirt with a rhinestone star^^ on: August 06, 2004 06:55:32 PM
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v94/shrinkwrap/P8060090.jpg
The rainbow part is from a pillowcase I got at a thrift store for no more than a quarter. Grin

I'm not exactly sure I like this skirt. O_O It pooched out in the front at first because I sewed it wrong but then I "fixed" it and now it has this weird stitchy thing down the front that you can't see in the pic.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v94/shrinkwrap/P8060088.jpg
That's the front, on. It looks weird because of the angle I took it. It's a mirror pic -_-

My butt.

Comments? Questions? Angry mobbing? Type away.^^

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Japanese pink spider tank top on: August 03, 2004 07:09:12 PM
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v94/shrinkwrap/shirt1.jpg

I made this tank top today. It was made from a white t-shirt with the top part cut off, and the straps are the sides of bandannas sewed together. It was fairly easy to make.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v94/shrinkwrap/spidert.jpg

In Japanese, it says "pinku supaida" and in the bubble "tsubasa ga hoshii"

Translated into English, it reads "Pink spider" and "I want wings" (lyrics from a Japanese song)

Feedback please^^


10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / new person...with some...uh, stuff. on: July 13, 2004 06:33:08 PM
Hello. I'm Sara. whee. I've been doing recons for a while, and I just did some...

http://img31.photobucket.com/albums/v94/shrinkwrap/okaymodified.jpg

Don't mind the weird screwy looking fak southpark-like face and chocobo battle cry or the nintendo behind me...ehehe...

The shirt says "Hey!" under my hair where you can't see... it's lyrics from a song called Celebration by the band X-Japan... And the three pictures are: one of the lead guitarist hide dressed up as a witch; the drummer/pianist/pretty man/genius guy Yoshiki; and the whole band on the bottom. I tried to put hide-sama in the middle at first, then I found out I was horribly off-center so I just staggered the rest of the pictures... I ironed them on through the technology of iron-on paper... the pictures have some "hey, your printer is running out of ink"-lines but it looks okay, I guess. And the writing is pink fabric paint.

It was a girly tee at first but due to my evil, evil arm flabness being too large for the sleeves, I had to replace the sleeves with sleeves from a white t-shirt that was attacked in some non-sleeve places by our washer. I'll probably end up legnthening the sleeves because they are way too short. Should I continue them in white or black, or something completely different? Tell me. Please. ^_^ Yoroshiku. *bow*

The skirt used to be a really long old lady jean skirt from Goodwill so I turned it into a punky-like shorter skirt with plaid things ripped from a really small skirt from Goodwill. *nod* Oh, and I put a zipper on the side, and when I unzip it it isn't fingertip legnth. *gasp* I'm so inappropriate.^^ I don't like showing my knees, but I think it's fun to wear non-fingertip legnth things just so I can think I'm a badass, so I found this little loophole.

Sorry to ramble.

And I want feedback, please. Dozo yoroshiku! (-_-) *bow, bow*
