Hi, I've been lurking for the past few days...but now I'm ready to post!  These pics are from a Halloween party I went to last Fall.  I made my costume (gypsy-elf), my roommate's costume (Demeter), and her bf's vest and pants (Pirate - you know which one).  I will try to include a couple pics here if I can figure it out...

http://www.angelfire.com/amiga/lystessa/HalloweenPictures.html  (This is the website).

Sorry guys, I tried but unless I can upload pics directly you're just going to have to go to the website.  Angelfire apparently doesn't like being used as an image holder.  Wink   Thanks April, now I can add the pics here with the joys of photobucket.com!

Jack Sparrow & Demeter

Jack Sparrow


Gypsy & Demeter (and Jack Sparrow pre-costume)

Elf-gypsy & Robot

I used a pattern for mine, can't remember the number but it's pretty easy to find.  Demeter's outfit is actually just one rectangular scarf of fabric with strategically placed snaps...which unfortunately didn't last the night.  It took forever to hem it and I was down to the last moments putting the snaps on so she ended up having to use safety pins when the snaps fell off. *sigh*  Her bf wanted to try to make his own stuff but he was pretty nervous and ended up getting discouraged when he messed up part of the vest.  It wasn't that hard to fix so I ended up finishing it and making his pants.  My husband got crafty last year too.  His robot costume had a trigger for a light inside the headpiece, and the lights on the front were on different timers so they looked kind of random.  It was amazing.

Thanks!  That website will come in really handy!

(My husband spent forever on that robot....I'll be sure and tell him you liked it).

I think the name of the fabric was "cloud 9".  They had it at Joann's (sp?) last October.  If you want more specific info on how to make the toga let me know.
