33  Re: Halloween costume ideas for 2008 in Halloween Costumes by alli.illektro on: August 07, 2008 10:09:20 PM
ooo- i hate couples costumes. but maybe because i rarely find them unique. DUO costumes, not couples necessarily (same gender, not together) annoys me less...
i also hate pun costumes.

that being said this year im thinking of being Pris from Bladerunner

im trying to talk someone into being Bill and Ted from Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. Tongue muscle shirts, plaid shirts tied around the waist and a Wyld Stallyns vest....YES

i'd avoid the Joker. you just know thats going to be the "it" costume of the year. you wont be able to go to a halloween party this year without tripping over a few jokers.

this was us last year:
me as a vintage style space cadet and my bf as *ahem* the 35W bridge collapse. (we live in minneapolis, lol)

34  vintage style cape thing in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by alli.illektro on: August 07, 2008 09:36:32 PM
i go on weekly fashion obsessions it seems...after watching the beatles movie Help! i wanted to dress like i should be chasing the beatles through london...but modern...errr....something like that...

(yes, im wearing shorts!)

anywho- i found this atrocious grey-plaid-with-appliqud-pink-lace-flowers fabric and i knew it had to be made into something like this. The middle piece (front) has a kangaroo pocket to keep hands warm! and the belt goes around your waist under the back of the cloak. so the front is kind of like a belted bib. haha. but i found that it fits best that way. No pattern. Not sure how legitimately wearable/stylish it is, but it was kinda tricky and i love  the way it turned out!

35  grey hooded dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by alli.illektro on: August 07, 2008 09:17:39 PM
this is another one i made a bit ago. i'm going through and finally taking pictures of everything now that i have a working camera.

i went through a big thing about loving hoods on unexpected pieces. this one is made of shiny grey knit. its great because its thick enough that it didn't need a lining and the fabric doesn't roll or fray so i didn't bother hemming it. (i don't have a serger so working with stretch annoys me anyhow) It's all cut out of one piece of fabric, hood included. only ONE seam here, the one up the front which i sewed with elastic to give it that gathered look. I LOVE this dress, so simple, so comfy and easy to wear. i have the hood pinned to my hair so it wont fall. If anyones interested i could probably make some sort of shoddy tutorial Tongue i just kinda made it up as i went along

36  fall vintage style dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by alli.illektro on: August 07, 2008 08:49:25 PM
here we go-- first post (well, of something i made)!!:
i made this dress this spring but im waiting for fall to better wear it.... i made it from this old vintage pattern i got off ebay. it was probably one of the easiest things ive ever made. i love the shape of it and the fit but it was kinda plain so i added the little embroidered doe and fiddleheads. i cant wait to wear it more!!

a close up of the deer:

and the original pattern  it came from:
