I honestly think you have a very good chance of winning. And I was not suggesting that YOU read the requirements, but rather that the person suggesting you should not be in the challenge should go back and read them. Heck, I only actually made the wig and did an alteration on the viel in my costume, everything else was stuff I already had. But I designed and executed the overall costume, just like you did with yours.
Don't sell yourself short. You have more of a chance at winning this than you think. You obviously have other people feeling threatened enough that they feel the need to question your right to be in this .... LOL

Haha. I was actually directing that at somethingcelestual. Should probably have started a new paragraph... But yeah I'm super flattered you think I have a chance; I honestly think there are more deserving costumes (like I'm super impressed with the Donnie Darko bunny mask...super impressed). I saw your costume, too, and I gotta say I think your wig looks a lot better than the ones I've seen in costume stores.

WOW!! That took guts! You look great.

Ha ha. Thanks!!! It was a blast wearing it.

I'd be interested in doing a personal swap with anyone who wants to do a fabric-wool swap. I have lots of wool and yarns!

Man, I'm really disappointed at how mean-spirited this has become. It's very 'unCraftsterlike' to start accusing people of manipulation, not 'making enough' of their costume, etc. There is no threshold of how much of a costume needs to be homemade in order to be entered, as long as people are honest about which bits they made, and she was. If you don't think it deserves to win, don't vote for it.

If she hadn't been painted, and had just worn the little leathery things and her tail, I doubt people would be calling for her to withdraw because she hadn't made enough of the costume. I think the paint is so striking people are getting a little crazy. She did say in her first post that the body paint was done by someone else. These costume contests are supposed to be fun, not cut-throat.

katastrophicallykat, I'm very sorry that this is how your first challenge entry turned out, I hope it hasn't put you off. Craftster is usually such a friendly, welcoming place, catty comments are not the norm here and that is what makes it such a great site compared to other internet forums. Please don't be discouraged! I'm sure this is just a blip, Craftster is a very warm place. Most people here love your costume!

Thanks! I've never even heard of alcohol activated make-up... Is it a pain to wash off? This stuff was awesome. Just came off in the shower. Granted it took two showers, but I was still impressed.

Thanks, sophieangele. It hasn't put me off at all. I've been a member here for a while now, and so far I've had a pretty good experience! Still love Craftster! =D

argh..yes it was horrible! it actually doesn't come off WITHOUT rubbing alcohol. mind you, that means no rubbed bare spots or getting it on people by accident, but yikes! I didn't think that one through, it was...an adventure to say the least. paint over a nylon body suit next for me! (and I do have plans for a shiva from final fantasy...go blue people!! Smiley )

I will not tolerate any more mean-spiritedness.  In case anyone forgot, it is against the rules.  Anything not in the spirit of Craftster will be deleted.  Let's move on.

I'd just like to add my two cents in saying that you look amazing and are very, very brave. I envy your comfort and ease at venturing out so boldly! And I mean this in a totally non-creepy way, but you have a very good figure to pull off the long and lean 'hunter/gatherer' physique the Na'vi are depicted with. By far one of, if not the, best take on the Avatar styling I've seen so far this year. Simple, yet effective. Nice job. =)
