1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / LEGO Ninjago!!! masters of spinjitsu on: November 08, 2012 09:18:00 AM
My son wanted to be Kai from Lego Ninjago this year.

The head is made of two foam floral wreaths covered with a camping sleeping mat (super lightweight) and covered by flannel backed satin.. the yellow part is 3 layers of see through fabrics (tulle, organza?, some sort of sheer stuff Smiley).  he could see through it easily. 

The body is made of foam core and covered with the same red satin.

The legs are made with an oatmeal can cut in half for that wierd lego hip bubble thing in the front and camping pad structure with shoe boxes for feet.  I intentionally left the legs a little "high water" so he could walk easier..

Forgive the horrible picture quality - our house was broken into this summer and the jerks stole my digital slr.  wah.  Smiley

It was actually a lot of fun and pretty true to lego scale. Smiley

3  COOKING / Dessert / popcorn cake on: September 11, 2010 11:02:45 PM
When I asked my soon to be 5yr old son what kind of cake he wanted for his birthday I meant chocolate, vanilla, strawberry or something along those lines.  He replied "I want a cake that looks like a bag of popcorn" and didn't waiver from that idea. 
I'd been wanting to try marshmallow fondant and it worked really well for this.  It worked remarkably well for the individual popcorn pieces.  Smiley
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / monkey monkey monkey :) on: September 06, 2010 09:01:49 AM
My son's birthday party is this coming Saturday and I loathe goody bags full of crap little toys that never make it out of my car. I always try to find something that's a little different, useful, yet still fun.  I found some kids shirts on clearance last year for $1.50 each and I got the entire lot.  My son has had glasses since he was 2 and loves music and monkeys so i started sketching and came up with this design.  It's silk screened and done with a photo emulsion kit.  Now my husband has me all paranoid that kids actually like the little crap toys and aren't going to care much for a tshirt.  So i've bought a chinese yo-yo and some candy to include with it.  Smiley

oh. and his bday is 09.08.05 Smiley
5  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Help Me Lose Weight Swap Round 2, (Sign-Ups 6/27 - 7/10, Send-Outs 8/14) on: June 29, 2010 10:05:28 PM
I love love love Zumba.. I'm an instructor!  And I'm in no way a typical looking fitness instructor.  I've got a long way to go on my weight loss journey.  I felt really self conscious about teaching for a really long time but after a few classes and having such a positive response from people in class I think I've just realized that people have found me relatable and we're all just there for the party. Smiley

Anyway... YAY this swap sounds like a fabbity fab fab idea!  Esp. for my first swap!

ooo.. this is super cool.  My 4YO wears glasses and we're in need of a glasses "rest" type thing for him.  This would be perfect. Smiley 
7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: Little girls denim dress on: May 28, 2010 02:46:39 PM
ow. ow. ow.  my ovaries.. they ache.. they ache for a sweet little girl so i can make her gorgeous little things like that.  I have 2 little boys.  Smiley

I love the Pumpkin Patch but I agree with the previous that I love your version more.  It's more shift-dress looking.  Super cute. 

My mother-in law and sister-in-law live in Christchurch and when we visit I love to hit up PP for their seasonal clearance since our seasons are flipped. Smiley
8  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Who ya gonna call? two tiny Ghostbusters on: November 01, 2009 08:55:02 PM
So more just an entry to show off the cute.. as there are some truly amazing costumes on here...but it is oldschool duct tape and homemade Halloween crafty goodness. Smiley

The doods were Ghostbusters this year.  We just made plain tan jumpsuits and sewed on a patch.  I used those cheap nylon sack back pack things with a cereal box inside as their proton packs and just adorned it with some gear looking things and gauges, along with some flashing tubey lights (made for decorating your bike).  You can't tell from the pictures very well but on Halloween I actually attached a candy chute (furnace ducting) to the top so they could just put their hand up near the back of their ear and drop the candy into the tubing/chute and use it as their trick or treat bag.  I think I will try to incorporate this concept into every costume from here on out.. it worked great!  

Oh I also used a silly string gun and put a pringles can around it to make it look less gun-like and made it their ectoplasm shooters that shot out green silly string.

his friend is holding it backwards so you can't see the gauges on the other side but there's a glow in the dark tube thing on the top.

I found a dark knight backpack online and really wanted to make Grant a trick or treat bag that was just the knight's head and body with missing appendages.. but time again, time got away from me Smiley

your kid's costumes are great! Smiley
