Styrofoam!  or Aluminum foil!

with the styrofoam you could just carve it into a rough shape then cover with air dry clay or sculptey.   Aluminum foil you could just bunch up and shape into roughly what you want then cover. 

Really good idea for a costume, good luck!
4  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: What are your favorite salad toppings/ingredients? on: May 13, 2010 11:55:07 AM
I like salads very sweet- my favorite has cut apples, dried cranberries, feta cheese, pecans or sunflower seeds, carrots, and raspberry or blueberry vinaigrette.  You could put red onions but they're not my thing.

My mom likes them really rich- she does those salad wedges where you cut a head of lettuce in four, then ranch/blue cheese dressing on top with bacon, croutons, and tomatoes.

I didn't make my dress XD or model it.   Maybe next year if I have time I'll make 9.   Thank you so much for the comments, I really appreciate reading them after all the work.

Because I'm one of the few students in my highschool that can sew, everyone knows it.  When Student Gov. decided to host a fashion show as a fundraising event, I had no choice.  I was so excited! Until I found out we had two weeks to make 8 outfits.  I picked 8 of my friends who wanted to be models and got their measurements and asked for $10 from each of them.  Because that's really not enough money to buy all new fabric, 5 of the outfits are reconstructed.
The picture above is me (the short-haired blond) and seven of my models. ( The 8th model was busy because she was another designer's model as well. )

All the dresses were made without patterns or a dressform, I just tried to draft them as I went ;)I tried to get pictures of everyone but it was so hectic that I missed a few.  I have pictures of all of the dresses lying flat but I figured they wouldn't be very interesting.  If anyone's curious and wants them, just let me know!

On to the picures!

This was made from an xxl t shirt and long matronly dress. She likes to make faces  Grin

I'm really, really proud of this dress. I made it from scratch.  I think I saw something like the heart cutout on here before, but I couldn't find it when I looked. I'll give credit if someone can find the link please!

EDIT: Here's the link! [url]https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=285224.msg3230564#msg3230564/url]

This was made from another thrift store dress, the straps in the back are cool, I wish I could've gotten a picture.

I LOVE this dress! The lace middle part was a remnant and the dress this awesome prairie 70s dress.

This is my best friend (who slouches  Cheesy )  The fabric was from scratch here.

The back isn't pulled down on this, but you got the idea Wink  This was also from scratch.  I had to blur part because we accidentally got a girl changing in the back.  Lips sealed

Here's another picture with me and some of my models.  If you have any questions or want more pictures just let me know! It was so stressful but everything came together in the end and I had a really good time!  I learned a lot!

I think a pose that would be easy to do could be riding the dragon like a surf board?
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Re: Cardboard Rat Maze (or any small critter) lotsa pics on: April 06, 2010 08:33:15 PM

My grandma would knit really elaborate ones, but they were special and only for her clothes.

The knots in the first picture look like chinese staircase to me, or that's what we call them.
10  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Alice and the March Hare on: December 21, 2009 09:48:09 PM
Disregarding how late this post is..

My best friend has been wanting to characters from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland for a while now.  We strove for the original Alice/March Hare look, not old enough nor wanting to flash skin around. Here we are together:

I made both of our costumes in the week before halloween.  

For alice's dress, I used McCall's M4948 pattern, on sale for a dollar at Joann's.  The apron is a lace pillowcase from goodwill that I cut and altered, making really simple straps from lace.  I bought the lace ruffled trim premade, I couldn't resist the frills.  Though you can't see it in this picture, i made simple loops from black ribbon to put around my feet, turning black flats into mary janes.  The petticoat was one taken from a child's bridesmaid dress and added elastic to fit me.

Here's a dreadful picture trying to show the back of the apron.

For the March Hare, I used brown fake fur with pieces of a wire hanger on the insides hot glued to a headband.  The bow was made with two rectangles and stuffed with batting.  The pants were from goodwill, white originally.  Dyed them green and shrunk the width and length to fit my friend.  The tail was last minute, a stuffed circle safety pinned on.  The jacket was mine before hand.

Here she is using easter basket straw to put on her ears like in the book Grin

THE END! (i love this tail for inexplicable reasons)
