I had a dream that I was helping you make a ritz cracker box corset. I either need to stop reading craftster before I go to bed or not eat sloppy joes before I fall asleep. Smiley

lol thank you so much, im very touched that u would dream of me ***blush***
im sure with your help my corset was amazing to say the least

If you do a Ritz Cracker box dress, you HAVE to take some leftover ritz crackers, preserve them with some sort of acrylic spray or poly, and then put them on the dress. it would be amazing, dangling off like coins or something.

some ideas? mylar birthday balloons (for the shiny silver and the pretty colors), receipts (they keep making them longer and longer, they'd make some sort of excellent fringe/flapper style skirt), paper money (not reusable but definitely fun!), packing peanuts (string them together like the popcorn and cranberry stuff people used to put on christmas trees)....

the possibilities? endless.

P.s. i have to agree, if my legs looked like yours did in a dress, i think i'd give up on wearing pants.

how did u know lol  Grin

How about baby bubble wrap for a simple tube top and those giant square puff ones (like from amazon) for a big bubble skirt? That would be cool!

Your dress is awesome.

I'm thinking you could have some fun making a tampon fringe of some sort (of course you'd want to use new ones LOL) to embelish one of your outfits.

holy rad!
My vote: Coffee Filters. You can sew them and dye them and they're al ruffly and cool. Youd have to sew them to some kind of fabric tho so they dont rip away.
Muslim fabric will work.  It was done on Project Runway a few years ago.  It looked stunning.

No suggestions, just wanted to say I love what you've done xD

Though I'm sure I've seen them/pics of you somewhere before xD. You seem very familiar, lol. I really should stop randomly trawling the internets xD

Love the outfits, sneaksneak!

Here's one that could be labor intensive but very fun.....

A chain mail dress made of soda tabs or pop-top can lids (I'm thinking of Helen Mirren's chain-mail bikini in "Excalibur". 

You'd have to line it so you wouldn't cut the **** out of yourself, but think of the entertainment possibilities (hearing Bonnie Tyler's 'I need a Hero' in my head)!

Don't dream it do it, darling!
