Nothing too special? Gosh woman, what is special? I love em. Can't decide if which leaf I prefer, I'm a black and white girl myself but that is a fantastic colour. The last one is my favourite, awesome job.

There are flaws? Would you care to point them out on this stunning piece of jewellery? It's awesome. Love the beads too.

Love the skirt, the colours are great. How light is that fabric? It looks kinda heavy. Oh, and thanks for the image of some sci-fi hero running around zapping robots and aliens with ruffly fabric. Made my day XP

Love it, the colours are just great. If you were gonna war it as a broach it might be a tad too big, but then again it's a statement thing. Personally I think it'd be awesome as a fascinator.

Well I'll use most of it for other stuff amalgam, I'll probably end up dancing in those skirts. Aww, you should really make something awesome and random for fun cos I promise it'll be worth it. You'd be surprised how many uses for costumes there are when you love 'em.
6  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Nemo (not the fish- NOT THE FISH) Costume on: June 05, 2010 12:14:54 PM
One of the costumes for my latest in a long line of photography projects (which I really should get around to posting, even if its only to justify thier existance). Origionally this character was just going to be a nameless witch nessecery to point other, more important characters, in the right direction but when I was working on her costume I must have got carried away. Its far more elabourate thn I origionally intended, more elabourate in fact then anything I've done for this project before. But I absolutely adore it and I'm really proud of it... my only worry is that I won't be able to top this and she'll have the most impressive costume even though she's barely going to be in the story. (I did consider scrapping the entire thing and making it about HER but people already get whiplash from my stories without suddenly having a minor character being more important then anything else. I shall have to talk myself into doing a spin-off of some kind lol). Anyway, without further ado or insane rambling I present to you...

Nemo the Sea Witch

Sorry about the horrible photos, my phone does some evil things to images and I just HAD to finish it all on he day someone borrowed my camera.

I wouldn't be surprised if you can't see anything at all here... must get some better ones but I was prety excited about this (I'm literally bouncing as I type, in fact several people on msn are considering sending emergency tea and strawberry cupcakes)

I should probably explain HOW I went from nameless minor character to the woman who is currently crowding my already busy thoughts... frankly I blame my mate Pippa. She's annotation queen and can write a whole essay on tiny sketch and is always bugging because my method is more... get stuff, make stuff, think about clearing up. Anyway, I decided to shut her up to do this strange thing called a 'project' diary and write a billion and one pages explaining to an inanimate object why I did various things. Not a good idea it transpires, because when I think about when I'm doing I'm more likely to think of something BRILLIANT. (Not what you want when you're trying to make one simple blouse to go with a skirt I already made and stick it on a character called, for the purposes of identification, sea witch1)

In short (because I've written too much already... typical me) listening to the Nightwish song Nemo gaveme the awesome idea of a wannabe nameless character recovering from some strange mysterious event in the past. At the time I only remembered the Disney Pixar Nemo which is why the sea witch came into my head. When I lookd it up later I found that its actually Latin for no one (should have seen that coming, my Latin needs work) and is a name shared by Odyseus when he faces the Cyclops and a character from Ten Thousand Leagues Under The Sea. No women though but that doesn't matter to me. So my witch is now called Nemo.

Argh, I'm rambling again and I'd be amazed if anyone actually read this much... so I'll be good and just talk about the stupid costume. I made all of it except my leggings from scratch, no patterns. The skirts are easy, six squares with holes cut in the middle (heavy AND twirly). There's three black, a green and two blue (one blue has a ruffled trim along the front hem). The shirt is stripy and currently only has two buttons but because of the cincher I don't think I really need to worry about that. The headscarf is scrap black fabric that I haven't done anything to yet, I'm not sure what if anything it needs (the costume is pretty fussy as it is). The main thing about it is the belt, which is just black elastic and ribbon with dozens of little charms and things hanging off it meaning I sound like a windshime when I walk. I forgot exactly what I've got on there but there's a few hearts, an ankh, a pirate medallion, some semi-precious stones. All stuff I've accumulated.

Well, hope people like it despite my erractic and probably senseless writing. C+C welcome and I should really get that cup of tea before I bounce outta the Milky Way.

Have an awesome day/night awesome crafty peoples

Awesome work. I thought about making some when I saw them in a gift shop last summer (six quid for a piece of string!?) but I never got very far with making the head. Dunno why I didn't think of styrofoam. You've got some lucky mates.

Just another random photo of mine. This time it was taken by my little sister with my new camera (so it's actually recognisable as human- shock horror). I'm the model (I don't look like that all the time... just Sunday mornings Tongue) and I did my hair, make-up (lotsa lovely cuts and bruises you can't even see) and made the bracelet and dress. My sister wants you to know she contributed to the costume as well... she ripped my tights. A lot. Well, anyhow people, let me know what you think of our combined insanity/creativity. Hope you like it.
