21  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Silent Hill- Pyramid Head Costume on: December 04, 2008 11:05:39 AM
Hullo there! This is a Halloween Costume I made for last year (not this year). I went as Pyramid Head from Silent Hill. I am a fan of both the movie and the games, and Pyramid Head is my favorite character! I was stuck in the appartment room with PH, and I was hit with inspiration to be him for Halloween!

So! First order of business was to make the helmet, which, I'll tell you right now, was hell. I made mine from cardboard, with wire and black see-through fabric on the inside, so I could see. I painted it up and then modpodged it so the paint wouldn't get everywhere if it rained. I also attached plastic chains that I bought so it would stay on my head.

Then I went and got some skin-resembling fabric and cut sewed it into a butcher robe looking outfirt and covered that in fake blood. I got some dollar store white tights, cut a hole in the crotch for my head, and painted the sleeves with red paint so my arms would look bloody and pale. Some rubber gloves and...


And because I am an idiot this way, I had to take a sailor-moon like pose.

In the name of Hell, I shall punish you!


Walking around, I made four kids scream/cry, scared a schoolbus full of children that passed by, and frightened loads of other people. It was great fun, walking around in it, but my back hurt from holding up the helmet after a while.

Thanks for looking!
22  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Pan's Labyrinth Dress on: December 04, 2008 10:49:35 AM
So, I am a huge fan of the movie Pan's Labyrinth, and when I saw this dress, I knew I had to make it. When I sewed it, I barely knew how to sew, and it was my first time ever sewing a dress or sleeves or anything. But I feel I did a pretty good job, especially since I had no pattern and had to wing it. I also made a sort of mock petticoat to fluff the dress up, but it is truly hideous.

Here are the pictures!

Me with costume-pride!

I have come a long way in my costuming since then, it astounds me. Still, as my first dress and sleeve attempt, I am pretty thrilled with it.
23  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / Hello there! on: December 04, 2008 10:28:52 AM
Hello there, My name is Alexandra (Alex for short). I am 17-years-old from Spokane, WA. My interests are mainly in Sewing, Costuming, sculpting, Crocheting, and other crafts. I am a huge costume, and want to go into it professionally someday, making costumes for plays or movies or something. Nothing would bring me more joy *Blissful sigh*. I also make alot of Plushies, and am thinking about starting an Etsy account and selling them. God knows I have enough felt to own my own Felt store. Haha!  Roll Eyes

I am a huge fan of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Star Trek: The Original Series, Batman, Tim Burton films, and Harry Potter, and most of my projects are from/based on one of those. I also love the 1800's and the fashion from that period, such as the hoop-skirts and the corsets and the huge dresses. When I get more advanced in my sewing skills, I plan to do some heavy period-style clothing!

Currently, I am working on making every costume from Rocky Horror, (So far, I have made costumes for Frank, Riff Raff, Magenta, Columbia, and Riff's Space Suit.). I am making some Star Trek uniforms and props, such as a Phaser and Communicator. Also, I am working on some Tim Burton costumes.

Anywho, that is pretty much me in a nutshell. I was on here once before, as Quillian91, but I had just just started crafting and everything I had posted was god-awful. When I look at those pictures, I truly shudder.  Roll Eyes

So, hope to see you all around the Forum, but I'll mostly be posting in the Costume section.
