Just down from the Gallowgate college there is a fabric shop - although I've never been in so can't comment on it

Do you mean Kings Fabrics?? It's a good shop! Although you have to go upstairs to get to the dress fabric & patterns, they have quite a wide selection and also cheap fabric remnants in wicker baskets by the till area, down stairs in the shop is more like upholstery fabrics.
John Lewis is also good but can be kinda expensive, but they do sell other crafty bits nad jewelery making supplies. [Crafty section is at the back end of the ground floor.]
Internacionale [sp?] is also good if you go down stairs to the homes section, quite cheap too.
Service Point [atleast I think it's called that] sells proper art supplies (paint, canvas etc), thats on School Hill, near the Academy shopping centre.
The Colour Box on Holdburn Street is sort of hard ware shop, sells most things, so it can be useful, and the guy in there is quite helpful.
Dorrie Doodle, opposite the theatre and library, can't remember the name of the street sorry!] is good for paper making crafts; stamps, paper, pens, ink etc. Can be expensive though

also look through the rest of the posts to see what other people have said, it's only four pages it won't take too long! Smiley
8  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Tooth Fairy Costume [many a picture!] on: October 31, 2006 02:16:48 PM
Howdy! I hope this is ok to post :S it's more like a customisation than a totally homemade outfit, if it's in the wrong place I apologise, feel free to move it! Smiley
and also, Happy Halloween!

So, here we go, this outfit is actually for my school's Halloween Ball, too old for trick-or-treating now, hehe, so basically I wasn't planning on going, but then I found out my group of friends was going, and I thought that maybe I would go, so I did, but I was kinda apprehensive about it, because I knew everyone would be kinda drunk, or atleast tipsy, but anyhooo I had a good time. In class at school I heard alot of people saying they were going as "anything as long as it's slutty" euggghhhhh, the people in my school are so boring! so anyway, after a quick google search of the typical costumes I decided to go as the tooth fairy......

Full shot of me trying it on this evening:

The Skirt and boots:

Close up of the top half with wings:

My teeth jewelery:

My skirt was originally from sainsburys, my mum bought it but decided she didnt like it, so I just added the netting to make it poofy, shortened it, and then had to also insert extra sort of triangles into the top layer of fabric as I had made it too poofy, lol. On the actual night I also wore white tights.
The tshirt was just a reconned grey tshirt, that was too short, basically i took off the sleeves, sewed up the sides and took it in slightly, then sewed the sleeves on to where the shoulders used to be, sorry, it's hard to explain, but I actually quite like it. Smiley
The boots were from primark, I just put the wee ribbons on the back of them.
The teeth were fun to make! they are white fimo clay that you bake in the oven, the brooch is just a sort of 2-D tooth with a brooch backing super glued on the back, the necklace is wee teeth that I put jewelery posts into before baking so that they hung off an old chain necklace I had. They're also kinda smudgy, it was the pen i used to draw on the brooch! And also white clay picks up any fluff which is on your hands while making them, so annoying!
The wings were store bought sadly, I was in the process of making them, but I knew they wouldnt be done in time for Friday, so I gave in a bought a cheap pair, but I will finish my wings eventually!

The halloween ball was last Friday so I have an action shot too....:

Left to right: Showgirl, Spider Fairy, Tooth Fairy

I'll upload more pics when my friends send them to me!

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Skinny green corduroys - with BUTTONS! on: August 17, 2006 08:19:48 AM
wow, well done! those look really professional Smiley I like the buttons on them, but as a personal preference, I don't think you should put them on the next pair you make, unless they were really cool buttons, or maybe you could try a zip, butthey might not always go with what you want to wear the trousers with, but I don't know.....well done again though, and good luck for college, can I ask where you live? are you needing warm autumny clothes already?
