1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Crow T Robot kids costume on: December 31, 2008 11:09:26 AM
YESS!! OMG! He looks awesome! Excellent job!

What a fun group costume that would be too. Now, to convince a friend to wear a gumball machine on their head.  Cheesy
2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Aeon Flux - Reconstructed! on: December 31, 2008 10:45:35 AM
So I posted this in the finished costume scrapbook, but I figured I'd go into a little more detail here. So here we go!

I HAD to make the Aeon Flux (movie version) costume from the minute I saw it. Unfortunately time caught up with me and I ended up with only a few days to finish it. Fortunately, I already had the materials I needed at home: black tank top with grommets in straps, 3 pairs of shoe laces, satin ruffled panties (you'll see), black panty hose, long sleeved nylon shirt, black leggings, and of course boots.

Here's what I wanted it to look like:

And here's my version:

Front detail..

Cut the elastic waistband from the panties, sewed them to the shirt and then threaded the shoe laces through the loops in the waistband.

Back view...

Cut the black nylon shirt into the tiny shrug thing on my shoulders, then cut the legs off of my panty hose and sewed them in as sleeves. Used a shoe lace for the back faux corseting.

Gratuitous photoshopped to look like a super hero view...

Used shoe laces for the front chest straps and for my laser gun holster.

Pretty much my favorite costume ever. Although I was a teensie bit on the cold side, it was totally worth it! Thanks for looking!!

Aeon Flux (the movie version). Made from a tank top (turned inside out), shoe laces, panty hose, the elastic ruffled waistband from a pair of undies, and an ugly nylon long sleeved shirt I never wore.

Let's just start with the gratuitous photoshopped one and work our way down shall we:

These look super toasty. The heater's been out in my place, so I decided to knit a pair of these while I waited for it to be fixed. Not sure why it never dawned on me to sew a pair! I've got my next project...these would make great gifts.

Thanks for the inspiration!!

The dress is amazing! I love the shape and the swing of it. Pretty sure I'd be spinning the whole night  Cheesy

That party sounds awesome too...someone needs to invent a teleporter immediately!

Hahahaha love it! I'm pretty sure every "dude" I know would wear these every day. Ok ok, I would too.  Cool

Brilliant!! Seriously creative...I love it! You should do shirts with other origami designs like the lotus blossom or a pinwheel.

Very cool!

Love the American Psycho shirt!! I bet you get a couple of strange looks from people who don't know the movie....which of course makes it all the better!  Wink

Nice work!!
