1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Frankensteins Zombie Cheerleader on: September 28, 2011 02:13:22 PM
This is my Halloween Costume from the last year.
In germany cheerleading is not prevalent. There are not many of them.
Its difficult to find an cheerleader uniform in a shop in germany, so I have to sew my own uniform

(You can see a small WIP on my blog: http://mara-macabre.blogspot.com/search/label/Halloween%202010 )

The tricot is from an old, simple.black Shirt from my mother (I took it because the fabric was perfect for my costume)
I made it narrower, made a new cleavage and decorate it with white facing and selfmade flock print
The Skirt is complete selfmade from black cotton with white facing

with lenses

the costume

Happy Halloween  Grin
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Gothic Spiderweb Lamp on: September 21, 2011 10:07:29 AM
Some time ago, I bought this lamp on the flea market. I liked the base of the lamp but not the lampshade

So I peeled sway the green fabric and covered it with a spiderweb mesh, bias tape and beaded lace

light on

Later (after I took the fotos) I made this Spider from beads. At this moment the Spider sits on a web in the middle of the lamp Smiley

and the original lamp
