1  CANADA / Saskatchewan / Steel Boning & Corset Supplies in Saskatoon? on: December 18, 2008 08:19:03 PM
Heyo, my mom's finally agreed to help me sew a corset as part of my christmas present, but I refuse to use plastic boning because it warps. Does anyone know a place in Saskatoon that I can find steel boning? I'm hoping I can find some before I go home for the holidays, and my hometown is sadly lacking in the corset supply department. I don't even really know where to look here, I doubt fabricland would have any.

So, anyone care to help me out?

Ooh! Thanks for reminding me. I knew there was another musical I needed songs from.

My fiancee was in Footloose his graduating year, so I grabbed "Almost Paradise" even though he was actually playing the Preacher, not the young guy. I forgot to grab that song from the music man, though.

You know, someone should really make this thread a sticky.

Edit: "Goodnight, my someone" is also a pretty song from that musical.

Price varies, if your interested just PM me and let me know how many roses, what color(s), whether you want any kind of filler, what size, and how you want them bound.

LED candles don't put off heat, you can get them big, small, and even submersible ones (though a bit of weight added and a piece of tape over the bottom of a small normal LED tealight makes it submersible. I actually tested that theory using one of mine, so if you bury/disguise them you can have them glowing through crystals, water, etc.. I'll post a link if I ever decide exactly what I'm doing with mine. This is what they look like, nothing special at first but you can get wax-coated and rose shaped ones as well:


Also, Michaels sells a fantastic little device I'm playing with right now. it's a floral light, tiny bulbs about the size of an LED, though their not LEDs.. Their battery operated, just like the LED candles and come with several ends you can stick into flowers (I'm doing paper flowers so that's of interest to me) or run through gauze or some such.

They look like this:


You can get long 30 foot chains, or ones with individual ends. The possibilities are fantastic, and both these options mean you run a lot safer than having a lot of real candles. Because, let's face it, fire will generally bring out the stupid in at least one guest, whether it's a singed drapey sleeve or just spilling hot wax on a nice tablecloth.

Hmm.. I don't think we have a store like that here, but will keep an eye out for it.

Hey guys, more updates are coming soon. I've been making some major breakthroughs with the roses, but to start with here's one of my nifty random experiments:

Now, I'd probably be doing this with something a bit nicer than a jamjar, but I think it looks pretty cool just as it is. What I did was take an LED candle then carefully bury it in all the sparklies. Alas, said sparklies are quite expensive at michaels, so the actual end result will probably be something more like glass marbles, which I can buy more of for cheaper.

Edit: Oh, forgot to mention the end result would also have a group of roses or something decorative on top. I am taking suggestions as to what to put up there.

I highly recommend clicking on everything on this site. Chantal's dresses are very unique and very inspirational.

Our table arrangements, all in recycled glittered cans or Ball jars:

What kind of flower is that big pink one? It's familiar but I can't place it..

I'm doing paper flowers, and their actually turning out quite well..


I have tons of pics, and will probably have a tutorial on how to paint them up soon.

haha!  That's going to be awesome, i can't even begin to sing (especially not like GLaDOS), but a few of my friends have threatened to smuggle Rock Band into our reception and play us a tribute song, maybe that will be it ; p

Oh lord, I hope my gamer bridesmaid doesn't get the idea to bring guitar hero. We'll never make it through the wedding speeches, she'll just stand there playing MCR songs for the entire reception..
