2  princess leia [pic obese!] in Halloween Costumes by somethingcelestual on: November 03, 2010 10:17:02 AM
a few years ago when i was a ripe young age of 19, i decided to make a leia costume. in the few years between then & now, i have indulged in a tad too much champagne & cupcakes. needless to say, since a crash diet was clearly not a viable solution, i had to completely remake my princess leia costume to cover certain areas where all that champagne decided to go.
3 weeks later, i have something that looks better then an $80 costume i found in NYC.
now that made me proud!

B T Dubbs, i was hot glued AND chained into this baby!

(front panel)

(back panel)
for the skirt, i used puffy paint ontop of felt to make the metal pattern on her outfit, then painted over it with different shades of gold. also, i found 2 types of upholstery trim to use as decoration. the bigger of the 2, i used as straps & the smaller i put onto my bracelet, as well as the front & back parts of my skirt. unforch, the ONLY purple fabric they had at my local fabric store was lace...everything else either had candy corns on it, or was $17 per yard.

i make the top out of a bra that i painted the metallic pattern on. i cut around the cups & secured the upholstery trim to the spots where the elastic had originally held the bra up.

my bracelet, armband & neck chain i made the same way i made the skirt: with felt, puffy paint & lots of different gold paint. i also had  some of that upholstery trim leftover so i added some of that.

please excuse my good friend, Mr. Chaplin! its my only detail pic of my top & neck pieces.
when i was 19, i had long enough hair to make the bun & the braid come down, but since i cut it all off, i had to make do with what i had. originally, i had glued my gold winged hair pieces to barrettes but because i have short hair now, i took them off & glued them to a headband.

i painted a squirt gun to look like the one leia used...(sidenote: i was bartending on halloween & filled my gun with tequila!)

always getting in the way, Mr. Chaplin...always in the way...

C&C welcome!
thanks for looking!!

5  Re: tired of the sexy-everything costumes? in Halloween Costumes by somethingcelestual on: November 05, 2009 09:25:17 AM
so let me start out by saying i am also, very, very sick of associating the "treats" with seeing women half naked, instead of associating it with candy.
now let me skip over the girl on the left...(who later took her wings off & was just walking downtown from bar to bar in underwear) & move onto the girl in the middle.
she was a peanut!
not only did her mother make this costume for her, but she did it so tastefully sexy! the bottom is stuffed with garbage bags to give it a puffed out look, & also covered her where she should be covered. she also had a couture looking headpiece made with the same blotchy fabric as her dress, with some netting to go over her face!
also--note the alligator. <3

7  hinge necklace charms in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by somethingcelestual on: February 20, 2009 02:35:26 PM
i went rummaging through our art room (spare bedroom FILLED with artsy stuff) & found tiny hinges. not the most decorative, i must admit...but they're still cute as crap.

this one has a charm with the definition of "friend" in the middle with bells on the left.
(i'm planning on changing the chain)

this is the same necklace with detail shown in one picture.
i used a lure attatchment, a turtle & anchor charm.
the chain resembles that of rope that could be used on a boat.
(ocean theme much)

this one is my favorite. it has a coin in the middle (hooray glare), a gem my mom gave me that i'm pretty sure her mom had, along with a key from a belt i found at salvation army.

C&C welcome! Smiley

8  phonebook earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by somethingcelestual on: February 17, 2009 12:05:03 PM
made out of plastic packaging that came with my boyfriends inserts he bought from footlocker & a phonebook i found on my porch.
since nobody ever really uses house phones anymore, i consider a phonebook a found object  Tongue

10  trash & trinket treasures :) some of my 1st! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by somethingcelestual on: February 16, 2009 12:35:52 PM

this necklace was made with different necklaces & bracelets i came across at various thrift stores, in addition to some earrings my mom bought in chinatown for like $2, that suprisingly kept falling apart. (earrings are the curled bronze design holding all the chains)

made with an old copper tooling pendant i made yeeaarsss back, with various charms! charms are some fishing lure attachments, a heart, a mini-key (from a belt at salvation army), a cell phone charm, a bronze man (bought in a pack of 5 near chinatown) a christmas bulb, a saint (not sure who) & one of those logo-charms that some companies put at the very end of a necklace where you attatch the ends.

these are some of my 1st so comments are welcome! Smiley
