1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Re: How do I make Starman's Cosmic Staff? on: January 14, 2015 07:36:51 AM
The clay is a good idea but maybe air dry clay instead? It's lighter and (I think) a bit less fragile. You could build it to fit around a PVC gasket that could make the top of the staff detachable (for ease of storage/transport). My friend is currently making a halberd but the blade part at the top is rather flat so she's using plastic fusible sheeting but I don't think that material would work for this situation Undecided

I've been meaning to ask this on one of your posts for while, What fabric do you use to make the 'skin' part of your dolls? I've been wanting to make some character plushies but I can't seem to find any fabric that seems like it would work. (The people at the fabric store have all been extremely unhelpful and keep directing me to either like polar fleece or muslin Undecided )

I'm so glad y'all liked it Cheesy

Yes, LimeRiot, it's hand-sewed down to the buttonholes XD (at least I learned a new crafting skill when sewing this project since I didn't know how to sew buttonholes)

(Sorry in advance for the terrible pictures, my camera seems to be on the fritz at the moment  Undecided)
Anyways, onto the project!

I am currently working on a steampunk costume for Halloween/Conventions (look for a post on my full costume on the Clothing board soon Cheesy) , and I decided that all good steampunk people need a either a vest or a coat. Well, since I think a coat is beyond my sewing abilities, I decided to go for the vest.

I started out with a fairly large decorative bed pillow case that I got from the thrift store. One side is a stretchy velour type fabric and the other is a satin type fabric that raveled like crazy. Since I don't have my sewing machine at school with me, I tried to keep as many seams in the pilllowcase as possible to make less sewing for myself XD.
In the end the only seams I was really able to keep were the two that formed the part under the arms.
I winged most of the pattern after looking over a few tutorials.  The buttons are cheap plastic ones from Walmart that I painted gold XD
(Also as a side note, the fabric on both sides are different shades of deep burgundy, but that color obviously didn't show up in the pics Sad)

Thanks for looking! Cheesy
