1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: The Profet.. on: December 01, 2010 09:47:31 AM
I wore boots because I was going to be drunk (very religious of me you know) and didn't want to fall down...

You are so my new hero for that phrase alone.  Love it!  Inside joke costumes are always the best!

Lovely, I always wondered how to make the back side look so clean.  Love the purple highlights in your hair too, gorgeous!

Thanks all!  Not to turn this into a religious discussion, but I'd like to give credit to where I got the idea from.  I took a mask aspecting class over the summer; info about a similar class in the same tradition is described here:  http://www.reclaimingquarterly.org/86/rq-86-aspectingdeity.html

Thanks for the advice Mandanak, I opened up the nose and it looks a million times better.  Plus, it was more comfortable being able to breathe and all.  Smiley

Edit: pic is the modified version of the mask, now with the ability to breathe!

I'll be invoking Earth at a Samhain ritual this year and decided to make an autumn leaves and ivy mask to help me look the part.  It's a cheap white mask from Walmart with fake leaves hotglued on to make it awesome! 
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: PROJECT RUNWAY: Season Six - Episode TWO - Official Craftster Discussion Thread on: September 03, 2009 05:03:27 PM
I was definitely surprised in the first ep that Ari was dumped rather than Mitchell, who doesn't seem to be able to sew.  Usually the more... "unique" designers are kept to see what they can do.  Her portfolio on Lifetime's site reflects a very Burning Man sort of style; cool, but can it really be translated to "normal" clothes?  I guess we'll never know.

I was less surprised that Mitchell was kept in the second round. I felt his concept was good, execution obviously not so much.  I think the judges were looking at the final concept for who to keep in the second round; Malvin's concept was totally off the mark whereas Mitchell's was right on.  If he can pull it together and get his projects done right, it could be interesting.  I can't say I'm super impressed with his portfolio though - he's really into that messy, loads of draping effect.

I like the two tone 50s colors, white/black or white/red or white/turquiose.  Keep in mind how hot that sucker will be inside if you paint the top black!  I lived in a silver 31' Silver Stream for a bit and that thing could get toasty even living on the NorCal Coast.  It was kinda like camping all the time. Smiley

LOL crazy Chicagoans!  My definition of cold has definitley changed after 8 years in NorCal.  I grew up in WV where you just get used to coats over Halloween costumes and kicking around in the snow in Easter finery. Smiley. I am starting to miss snow finally.

Thanks all!  Not only did I get exactly what I wanted, but it wasn't super expensive to make, $32 for the jacquard, the fleece was on sale for $5 a yard, and a crapload of thread for a couple of bucks.  I definitely see why folks sell them for a couple hundred online, because it's very time consuming and you have to be pretty anal to get the jacquard not to bunch up.  I had to rip it all off once because it looked bad.  Second time round, I sewed along the top of the jacquard first, then did a second round sewing around the bottom of it.
