1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Lady Gaga (telephone edition) costume- how to make it even more Gaga? on: October 23, 2010 07:23:07 AM
So I have this Lady Gaga costume. It's pretty good, but somehow I feel like it just needs more. More over the top outrageous Gaga-ness. Here's what I've done so far, but what else can I add? Raw meat is out of the question  Wink

Take one set of sunglasses:

Scorch the ends of a pack of cigarettes (outside if you can, they stink).

Attach them with some folded duct-tape. Make sure to leave slits to look through, or the world will be a dark place indeed.

Make a half-scoop glove by cutting up a discarded leather glove, there's lots of those around at this time of year, I found mine on a street corner. Here's a tutorial, I cheated and used fabric glue on the seams.

Then cut up an old CD to make a chest panel. I fabric-glued mine to the leg of an old pair of tights. You can use to crotch of the tights to make a wig cap too, just tie off the legs holes to make a beanie shape.

Add a wig, some soda cans attached with hair pins, a leather jacket, ripped fishnets and some stompy shoes, and you're set! And remember: a lady never wears trousers.

Our gingerbread house, complete with a gingerbread moose! We make one every year from the same pattern, but each year it ends up looking different.

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Headbands la Waldorf on: September 13, 2009 10:00:08 AM
I was watching Gossip Girl reruns the other night, and fell in love with not one but three of  Blair's headbands. Alas, a Google search informs me that Blair's headbands are made by various high-end designers, and retail for an average price of $200. $200 for a few bits of satin ribbon? I figured I can do better than that, and set to work with what I could find in my closet. My inspiration:

A few hours later, some old plastic headbands, a ribbon sash, a shoelace I found on the street and a pearl necklace from a Christmas cracker became these:

Mine are a little more subdued than Blair's, as my boss would probably not understand if I showed up at work with a giant Minnie Mouse bow on my head, but the inspiration is all Blair.  I used this tutorial to make the rosettes for the double rose headband, and a bit of elastic to secure the pearl necklace, bu the rest was pretty much just ribbon and stitches, as easy as can be! And best of all, they didn't cost me $200 each.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Ballgown won't zip up the back- how can I fix it? on: October 22, 2008 10:34:49 AM
I have this beautiful vintage ballgown that is too small for me sitting in my closet, and was hoping I could fix it up to wear it for Halloween. It's a great fit in every other way, I just need to come up with a way to fix the gap in the back where it won't zip up. The gap is 4 cm across (looks wider in the photo because it's sagging in the front).

Any ideas? I don't have a sewing machine, but am open to any ideas that don't involve one.

7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Europeans, where do you buy your supplies? on: February 16, 2008 09:37:18 AM
I've been trying to find a good, cheap wholesale supplier for freshwater pearls lately, but am a bit stuck with the shipping. My country charges 40% import tax on packages from outside the EU worth more than $40 (this includes the shipping). The lowest shipping I've been able to find so far is Firemountain Gems at $18, and that really doesn't give me too much money to order with before you hit the import limit. Any ideas?

Just out of curiosity, how do they look under shirts? Are they noticable or lumpy at all?

They lie pretty flat, I certainly haven't been able to see them. Maybe if you wear really thin, clingy fabric then yes, but under a regular tight t-shirt it's pretty much invisible.

Now Only if the link for that picture worked..

Fixed, don't know what happened there...

Ha, try being chesty *then* going flat.  And I'm not talking surgically here.  I was a D cup since 4th grade.  When I turned 27, I decided to drop 100 lbs. 

You could always take up Letterboxing! Cheesy
Sounds like fun!

Working on a new improved version of the clip now, hope it turns out ok  Smiley
