1  Princess of Power! SHE-RA!!! in Halloween Costumes by Twitch Wench on: November 04, 2011 10:18:48 PM
My daughter found She-ra on Netflix and was instantly smitten.  She wanted all the She-ra dolls (because she's five and that is the first thing that she thinks of) so I told her that she could trade in all her Barbies for She-ra dolls and she didn't miss a beat when she swore them all over.  I woke up the next morning to a bag full of Barbies and a pleading look...  so eBay to the rescue...  the kid traded in her 8 Princess Barbies for a dozen (some duplicates) 20+ year old She-ra dolls...  Anyhow, she obviously also had to be She-ra for Halloween.

I made her crown out of a sheet of glittered foam "paper"...  her spats and arm cuffs also were made of the stuff.

She lost that belt that night and I hadn't finished all her embellishments...  so I had to whip up the new one...

For the honor of Greyskull!!!

I made everything but the undershirt and tights.  My dad made her sword.

Her Sword of Protection.  lol  My dad just took up using a skill saw which turned out to be totally awesome!

There are some really spectacular costumes posted up here!  I just wanted to share my little She-ra's.  Thanks for checking it out!

2  Retro Lamp in CHALLENGE 42 ENTRIES by Twitch Wench on: September 01, 2009 10:16:18 AM
So I'm hoping this is acceptable.  I had a pair of oriental style paper lamps.  The shades were attacked with several years of dog drool and not the most attractive (I kept them any how to recover and make something fabulous later from).  But the lamp guts were still good...  This was not my original idea, but I went with it anyways.  I used 6 clear plastic bowls and a pack of clear plastic party plates for the stem of the lamp and a pair of mixing bowls for the shades.

Here is the finished product.

These are the orignal lamps I used. 

They had to be COMPLETELY disassembled wire's removed from everything, spray painted (I had a can from making on of  the awesome starburst mirrors), then had to thread the wire back thru everything.  My husband helped drill holes thru the bowls - a total pain in the arse - and I shortened the switch.  And wala!

One last pics with the light off.

Hope you like it!

3  Baggy Dress Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Twitch Wench on: August 20, 2009 03:39:06 PM
From hand-me-down baggy dress...

...to drawstring bag.

Nothing amazing here.  Just loved the fabric and thought it would get more use hanging from my shoulder.

Thanks for looking.

4  Because every girl needs a Tu-pron! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Twitch Wench on: July 31, 2009 03:30:29 PM
This is my first post.  I'm not sure if there is a right or wrong way to go about this so here goes...

I made this apron free hand (without a pattern), my first attempt at doing so.  I based it on an apron my daughter already has, but has grown out of...  and figured that while lots of little girls have aprons...  and lots of little girls have tutus...  how many can put on both with so little effort. 

Since this pic was taken I have added a bit of embellishment as the bib was begging for some flare...

Thanks for looking!
