1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Wilderness Explorer, Russell from Pixar's Up! on: November 05, 2009 07:21:21 AM
"Excuse me, sir?  Are you in need of any assistance?"

This year I decided to go as Russell from up.  I figured the costume would be super easy to make and it was but boy did those merit badges take a long time!

Here's a shot of the whole costume, basically I dyed a white shirt and white hat the same color yellow, made a bandanna out of orange fabric.  The bandanna clip and the WE pin are made from yellow craft foam.  The sash is made from brown fabric and ALLLL those badges were hand sewn from felt pieces then machine sewed onto the sash.  Took a long time but I had lots of fun making up badges!

Here's a closeup of the Wilderness Explorer badge on my hat, there's also one on the pocket of my shirt.

Here's a close up of a few of the badges.  Some of the badges were directly from the movie (I looked at a kids sticker book) and other I just sort of made up.  That green one with the white cross is my favorite, he wears it in the movie it's the 'badge overload badge'   Grin

And finally a close up.  Those freckles were a last minute idea!
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Tomboy Swap aka NO PINK ALLOWED on: September 30, 2009 09:10:12 PM
Would anyone be interested in a Tomboy type swap?  I love crafting but I'm not the type of person that likes to get frilly, brightly colored things.  I am definitely a tomboy.  We could make practical things that aren't necessarily 'girly'.  I'd like to think of this swap as sort of 'gender neutral.  Anyone with me?
