3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: My Best Friend is moving to Canada. Ideas? on: May 01, 2008 02:01:54 PM
where is he moving in canada? we have a variety of different weather/climates... if he'll be really far north, a toque/scarf set or gloves that you sew something onto would be useful... an umbrella if he is moving near vancouver, bug spray for summers back east...
if you live in a warmer climate you might want to make a "I miss home" kit too.

Males have the antlers, females dont.
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Help! Creative ideas for re-gifting an ugly doll on: November 21, 2007 10:14:22 AM
cut off all their heads and make the heads into a set of christmas ornaments. sneak into his house and hang them on his tree?


you could send him a boxed set of heads for one year, and feet/hands another year?
6  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / husband has wicked costume... now what about me? help needed please! on: October 16, 2007 08:08:24 PM
ok, so we have a last minute halloween party costume crisis.

need your creative ideas please...

my husband wants to go as ghost rider. I am painting a skull on his face, and colouring his head/hair in reds and yellows like flames. he has the perfect thin, sticky up hair to do it too. (and what an easy costume - black outfit with a chain slung over your shoulder).

any how, I want a costume that SORT of goes with it, but something recognizable as something for when I am on my own. in the movie the girl he is with is a news reporter, well, I wear business outfits daily, so its not much different for me.

but, I still have my wedding dress.. a long white sheeth I am very willing to turn into something .even if it means cutting or ripping at it.......ghostly vampire or something? undead? also a black glittery dress. a devil woman? fangs and lots of eyeliner? any one have any ideas?

orginionally we were going to go in our wedding clothes (his a suit) and put on fangs and cover ourselves in fake blood and go as "wed and dead", but he likes his ghost rider idea better. dont blame him. but now I'm stuck.

7  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / ideas for small kids costumes on: August 13, 2007 07:29:57 AM
if you have a smaller child (under 7ish)
just about any animal costume  can be made out of a mens size large hoodie.

for example, I bougth a mens large black hoodie, drew the hood drawstring tight on it and glued on a yellow triangle beek (on kids forhead area of the hoodie hood, to the top. then I glued on a white felt square on the stomach, added a red bow tie on the neck and yellow rubber boots - tada - my daughter became a penguin!

you can find mens hoodies at walmart fairly cheap too, and they fit over snow suits.
8  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / plaster sculpture and casting for the outdoors? on: August 10, 2007 10:21:46 AM
anyone recommend a medium to cast into molds like plaster - but is weather/waterproof?

something finer than cement...
9  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / water proof hand casting? on: August 03, 2007 03:15:13 PM
I got this neat idea that for halloween, i want to decorate my front steps with hands apearing to climb up the sides of the railing. (think adams family) I can easily cast them out of plaster, but can anyone think of anything more weather resistant to cast them in?

10  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / Re: ideas to colourize my wedding dress on: August 03, 2007 10:28:23 AM
I just found out from the manufacturer that the dress is 100% silk fibres, but lining is 100% polyester georgette.

I am thinking of painting a graduated pattern with the silk now, sort of with long brush strokes that get more condensed, with the colours getting darker as it gets to the bottom of the dress, and sparcer as it gets to the bodice. (in my mind, this might look better with a white lining than a solid coloured dress).

what kind of dye would one recommend for this? if I mix a kool aid vinegar solution to paint on, do I still need heat? do I still pre-wet the dress? (I imagine the dye will run no matter what I do unless i use wax).

or, what type of dye would you recommend for me to be able to 'paint' on?
