2  Saloon girl costume in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Belladune on: November 26, 2018 08:43:19 AM
I'm a part of our local theatre group. We are very small, so each of us is responsible for our own costuming. I chose to make my own this year because I had visions Smiley  Each of the three pieces was made to be completely reversible so my character, Barbara Seville, could have costume changes.  I created the patterns as well as did all the sewing.  It took me way longer than I thought it would and totally was down to the wire, refitting the corset part right before show time, after the snaps kept popping during dress rehearsal. But I got a lot of compliments on it, so that's a win!

(sorry, some are sideways! I never know how that happens, as they are upright on my computer!)

3  Narwhals Narwhals in Halloween Costumes by Belladune on: November 03, 2018 04:46:46 PM
Swimming in the ocean, causing a commotion, 'cause they are so awesome!

The middle kid is kind of in love with narwhals. So, he was one for Halloween! Using simply cardboard, coloured paper, elastic bands, some scrap insulating fabric, a yarn cone, duct tape, and hot glue, we have one cool narwhal!
(kind of in rough shape by this time, as he'd been wearing it for 4 hours previous to this pic)

4  Post-Apocalyptic survivor/fallout survivor in Halloween Costumes by Belladune on: November 03, 2018 04:37:47 PM
Ok...  I did not do much for this costume lol  But!  I did help.  My 13 year old put this together mostly himself.  He created the plans for the gun, and came up with how it was going to come together, but needed help with the welding (since he's never done that, and that wasn't me either...) He used a few pieces of 2x4 and shaped them a bit with a router, and some wood working tools I don't know the name of, and secured it with copper strap hanger.
Then we went to a "junk Treasure store" and he found the goggles, the mask, and the esso oil can.  The oil can "works" as a secondary filter (the idea here is that his character needed to make a better air filter, and that's what he could find so it's stuffed with whatever filter materials) and it's hooked up to the mask with a piece of old hose. I helped refine the process here and helped to attach the hose.
He stained a (rather nice) shirt with coffee to age it. 
Put it all together, and you've got a really cool costume.

5  Unicorn! in CHALLENGE 125 ENTRIES by Belladune on: November 03, 2018 04:19:14 PM
nearly every little 8 year old girl wants to be a unicorn, right? So I knit my daughter a unicorn outfit.

I used the Velvet Acorn pattern Unice Unicron hood for the hood, and just kind of winged it for the tail.  It's a base of the white yarn, knit into a tail stub with a belt.  I secured it with safety pins.

As it goes in our town, there is very little time for picture taking, so I could only grab these pics while she was out and about with her friends and I met up with her by happenstance.

Also, a bonus pic - all the costumes we made this year (since I can only enter 1, and I choose the unicorn, but I'm proud of the work we did and want to show it off! I'll make posts for the others in the proper section of the forum)
