281  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Order of the Phoenix knits!! on: July 16, 2007 10:13:39 AM
I am so excited about the projects! I saw the movie at midnight on tuesday, and was quite taken by the projects but took no notes, so when I went back last night with my little brothers (a birthday treat for them) I took some sewrious notes on every scrap of paper I had with me. They are less-than-legible, but I'm working on it.

I know I took notes on the color pattern of Ginny's "plotting" hat that she wears on the bridge-- the mustard/olive/cream/brown one with the pom pom.

I'm working out a pattern for Luna's crocheted short-sleeve sweater/caplet (it really is a sweater, I figured out on second viewing. I'm using an "i" hook and worsted weight yarn in a double crochet. The sleeves are trimmed in Picot, and there are three lace insets on each-- I'm just not sure how to make the lace...

I think Luna's teal cardigan had a shawl collar-- it didn't look like a hood to me from the front, but her hair is so long I couldn't quite tell. What about her scarf at the first DA meeting in the Hog's Head? Was it crocheted or dropstitch? Because I'm thinking dropstitch.

Ginny's mustard-colored vest made me squeal. I kid you not. I'm thinking large guage, two big cables, and a chunky-ribbed edge.

I was basically in love with everything Luna and Neville wore. Im a sucker for that Geek-chic look you know? Sweatervests and the like. I wanted copies of everything Neville wore to force on a boyfriend Wink

Thanks for the advice.

I went ahead and put some more color on earlier and processed it for 30 minutes. The pink is just slightly brighter than before, but I wasn't expecting miracles-- I really didn't want to bleach my hair, and I'm fairly sure that just tinting it will be fine-- it's sufficent enough, and everyone I've seen has commented on the color, so I guess it's obvious.

I was looking into hairsprays, but I'm afraid I'll sweat them off. I'm really not in the mood for pink streaks on my neck...Have you used the hairsprays before? What do you think of them?

I'm might get some to just spray streaks in-- brighten up little bits here and there.

Beautiful work!

I tried and tried and tried to bead myself some earrings, but failed horribly every time. You did a wonderful job! They look great, and make me really want to attempt another time!

I did this in art class in middelschool! We made masks and bowls and such. It's great to see a craft like that getting such a beautiful spin put on it. I love the thread mixed in with the paper. GORGEOUS!
Oh, and teabag love! Twinnings is a favorite of mine Cheesy

I have a quick question.

I've never dyed my hair before, but last night I used Clariol Jazzings in Fuschia Plum on my light ash blonde hair. I'm going as Tonks for the midnight showing of Order of the Phoenix tomorrow night. I processed it to be semi permanent (i.e. covering my hair with plastic, heating it for thirty minutes, then rinsing/shampooing). It's just a tint/gloss, so I knew it wouldn't be bright pink. According to my father, it looks like I got pink highlights. You can still see a bit of my natural color, but it's darker and sort of glows pink, especially under bright light.

My question is, is it safe to go back and put more dye on, so the pink will be brighter? Should I just leave it? If I put more dye on and only let it process to the temporary setting (5 to 10 minutes, no heat) will all of my hair fall out?

Has anyone else used this product?
290  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Need help for Bellatrix Costume!! on: June 29, 2007 07:24:12 PM
I don't have any pictures of it yet, but I made a Bellatrix costume for a friend of mine. It consists of:

Black lace v-neck shirt
Black rayon ankle-length skirt
Black fishnet tights
Pointy-toed Granny Boots
Purple Corset

I cut the neck open deeper in the shirt, so that it was split inside the corset. I also cut the sleeves off of the shirt, then laced them back on with some black ribbon to create the Helena Bonham Carter effect. I also cut a hole/point in the sleeve cuff to do that whole around-the-finger thing.

The skirt was double-layered, so I staggered slits in it, then ripped them. The top layer was split all the way to the waist, and the bottom was split only to the point of retaining modesty. The effect achieved is very much like a "pirate" skirt one would find at Party City.

I rippedthe fishnets in strategic places to create that "I've been in prison for 15 years and I'm a little crazy" look.

The corset is one she bought at Wet Seal five years ago, and is actually pretty worn-out looking. The Granny boots are, ironically enough, her Granny's from the 80's.
Everything else we got at Thrift Town for about $13. It turned out exactly as I planned it.

I hope that helped--If you ave any questions at all, let me know.
