1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: tired of the sexy-everything costumes? on: September 02, 2009 02:05:01 PM
I lived in Florida for about 10 years, nice warm halloweens. The costumes you see little girls (grade school age!) wearing down there are disturbing as hell. Looks like the neighborhood has been overrun with child prostitutes. Perverts Delight. yuck.

For adult women sexy costumes are ok, but skimpy storebought garbage that costs 5 times what it would cost to make your own is just dumb. and maybe it's the wisdom that comes with age but over-drunk, under-dressed college girls just make me sad and worried for them..Halloween or not!

I've been trying to get my 15 year old daughter to sew for years. Your designs have inspired her to try!!! How cool is that? (I could go for matching mother/daughter dresses like THIS! lol)

They're so ugly they're CUTE!!! I love them! I'm gonna start eyeballing sweaters at the thrift so I can make me some! Thanks for sharing them.

yeah, the shipping was an ugly surprise our first time around too. I've noticed they sometimes offer pick up. I suppose it's possible to get lucky and find what you want close enough to drive over and get it.

I like the site but wonder if in the future it's gonna cause all the good stuff to disappear out of Goodwill stores if it gets popular.

Loved the title of your post! I feel the same way, compounded by the fact that my lovable live-in boyfriend IS a computer expert... you'd think that would make it easier but it just makes me feel even dumber, lol. (that means laugh out loud, in case you're really totally new to the computer.)

I live in upstate NY but moved here from NYC so it feels like Kansas... anyway nice to meet you! I'm new here too

Auctions!  we were working with a guy who was doing food auctions in Binghamton Ny for a while, and the auction houses would usually have a bunch of different stuff going off the same night. By the end of the auction they'd be selling off two or three big ol' cardboard boxes of all kinds of random stuff for like a dollar! Best part, people who bought em would take a couple things they wanted and just leave the rest behind! So, not only can you buy cool stuff cheap but you can actually groundscore a lot of goodies at the end of the night if you stick around. It's not like this everywhere but check out different auction joints around where you live. It usually doesn't cost a thing to get a number and see if you wanna bid on stuff.

Just don't get carried away, because auctions are like gambling.It can be pretty addictive if you are wired that way.

Another suggestion is actually behind the thrift store they often throw stuff out if it doesn't sell, so I go in the store in the daytime, and behind it at night Wink

Hi, nice to meet you! I'm all gimped up with a knee injury and also have chronic depression which means meds that cause painful muscle spasms so I too find crafting helps kill the boredom Smiley

I am in awe!!! I'm so the other end of the spectrum, I'm lucky if I get mine wound around the little card...color selection? more of a zen "let's see what comes out of the basket in this handful" technique... I believe you could go around and do this professionally for others...(just don't come back and see what's become of it a few months down the road!)
seriously, you amaze me!
