1  Some Cosplay costumes that I made. in Costumes: Completed Projects by Tessie on: November 29, 2011 07:14:37 AM
I have no idea who the characters are, my friend Sylvia just brings me pics of these costumes and I make them. She loves this stuff, plus she's got the perfect body to sew for!

 I made the little girl's outfit and the teal jacket

3  I am a costume designer for The House of Shock, here are some of my costumes. in Halloween Costumes by Tessie on: November 08, 2011 08:08:17 PM
We are an internationally known haunted attraction and I have had the pleasure of being a cast member for the past 10 years. I started out as an actor and now I am the lead costume designer.
This year costumes that I made were even in USA Today, Yahoo News and Huffington Post!

That's me in the middle but all three costumes were made by me.

This is Brandon, it was him and his girlfriend Lindsay who were photographed by the associated press which led to the articles in USA Today, Yahoo News and Huffington Post.

Brandon's girlfriend Lindsay.

It's not a great shot of the costume which was awesome! But this is Trish, she was a reanimated corpse in a morgue scene.

And here is Crystal, also in the Morgue.

This suit was a pain! It was a three piece black and red suit with a three piece white tear away suit over it because this character (Levi) turns from good to bad.

He turns to try and overthrow this guy in out main stage play that is complete with huge pyro technics. This is Lord Belial!

The rise of Abaddon!

Here Abaddon has risen, I made the shroud on his riser too, if it would be completely showing it would translate to "your mother" LOL! Here you can see Levi's black suit and I made Abaddons costume as well.

Here's a shot of my costume complete with the feet (stilts)

Here are the news links I mentioned
in Canada too
Even Poland!

4  Some frames that I made as Christmas gifts in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Tessie on: January 26, 2009 08:34:04 PM
It was a homemade Christmas again. I found the frames at the dollar tree and annihilated my clay stock but I think I'm going to start trying to sell these now!!

I made a camoflauge cane for these, it turned out better than I would have thought.


These were for the sports fans

clay gun stripes

My first attempt at flower caning

and some grapes!! I love this one....

Thanks for looking!!

I'm making frames like these for my family. Each one will be a reflection of that person like their favorite colors or a certain decor they love. I've also started making some bags. I'll post those when they're done and more frames as they get done. There are about 20+ that I need to make....now you see why I'm making gifts.

This one is for my Aunt Heidi who has a peacock theme in her home.

This is for my sister-in-law Jaime, she loves these colors. It cracked in baking though Sad

This is for my mother-in-law who has a grapes and wine sort of Tuscan thing going on in her kitchen. I just know she's going to LOVE this frame.

This is for my sister-in-law who is bright and bubbly and girlie in every way.

and some ornaments that I've made just for fun, I think I'll throw them in with their presents.

7  Re: Costume for Haunted House Attraction, The House of Shock!! TONS OF PICS!!! in Halloween Costumes by Tessie on: October 08, 2008 05:46:29 AM
Just wanted to update the pictures. I made a few changes. I had to redo my horns because I left them in the warehouse over the year and the rats got to them. EEEEEWWWWW

I re-paper mache'ed them and then I took panty hose and cut each leg into a coil to make a LONG strip then just wrapped and wrapped and wrapped! It made this really cool ridgy texture on them. I painted it black then took a some grey and did a drybrush technique over it.

I hate the bright blue cape, I'm painting it black or distressing it more. I think I might take a lighter to it and char it up a bit, after all I am a demon who crawled out from the depths of hell.

Fuse (Canada's MTV) is going to be coming out to film this year!! I'm excited about that!!!

8  Has anyone ever painted a sofa? in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by Tessie on: October 07, 2008 05:58:49 AM
We recently inherited a very ugly sectional sofa. On one side it has a pullout bed and the other side has two recliners and this thing is HUGE. I know how to slipcover and I know that slipcovering this monstrosity would relive me of any sanity I've managed to hang on to. So now I'm thinking painting it....

Oh I forgot to mention, the fabric is a chenille country blue with mauve and yellow speckles... YUK!!!

My mother in law once used a fabric paint on some chenille dining chairs which left them very stiff and scratchy so I'm a bit leary to paint.

Oh and to further make it worse, I have company coming in about 2 weeks and I would like this done by then.

 Angry Huh Sad Embarrassed

I was even thinking of using tape and a rubber stamp to create a pattern onto the fabric. I have a three year old who's quite a mess so patterns would be better.

Here is a photo of the monster couch! The damn thing is SO big I couldn't even get the whole thing in the shot!

OK!! Here are pics of it, pre-studded.  I managed to do the zippers on the arms to make them detatchable and  I have to say that it doesn't look half bad!!
Here we are!!
Here's the belt buckle I made from sculpey

and the suit on a pillow

The sleeve zipped on

and removing it.....

 I've been studding and studding and have placed over 1000 studs, I just purchased about 1,000 more and I'm hoping I don't run out again.

10  My delima, Detatchable sleeves on a spandex leatard.... in Costumes: Discussion and Questions by Tessie on: July 17, 2008 01:17:51 PM
I'm in the process of making a Peter Criss costume for a friend in a KISS cover band. The costume in particular is circa 1976 and there were two versions, one with and one without sleeves. I guess the sleeved version was too hot to play in. Well this guy I'm making it for would like to have the sleeves but for me to make them detatchable for when he plays. He sent a premade Danskin leatard which I've disassembled and cut facening pieces for the sleeve and arm hole to attach the zipper where there's a tiny lip to cover the zipper. I plan on making the zipper meet at the top of the shoulder where the collar extends so the zip pull can be hidden and there's less chance of it catching on his pit hair.

Here's a few pics of the suit I'm copying. In the first pic I will be making the one to the right with narrower trim.

Here's a view of how the trim covers the top of the shoulder.
I'm thinking of making a small overlap that fastens with a bit of velcro.
See there's another problem though, whatever I do needs to withstand his movements as he plays the drums.

and finally we have a good view of the sleeves with the trim or "tufts of fur" which is what I think he likes the most about the longer sleeves...that and he's based in New York so sleeves will be warmer.

Any suggestions on how I should approach this?

There are also more pictures of the costume here...
