1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Leela from Futurama for my daughter HELP PLEASE!!! on: September 30, 2010 09:22:11 AM
i was leela for halloween in 2008!
for the eye i bought a white styrofoam ball from the craft store- sliced off a side of it to the right size.... covered it in white felt- and put a dot of black felt as the pupil.
i took nude pantyhose- and sticky sided velcro- and velcro'd the "eye" to the pantyhose. then tied the panty hose around my forehead.
i pushed the eye up a little bit so i could see better- but this was the only option i could think of for the eye.

the gun i just bought a water gun from the dollar store. i also bought some cheap belts and wrapped them around my black boots for a chunkier feel.
i wore black leggings, white tank top, wig with bangs- and sprayed it purple with a high ponytail.
i also wore a black belt and looped the trigger of my gun through it

YOU are a doll, thanks so much! i have a whole bunch of books, you'd think i could just look stuff up. i'm resistant to learning a whole 'nuther language, so to speak. i love to crochet though and i spend way more time on the interwebz looking for picture and video tutorials than it would take me to just memoraize some abbreviations! i'm such a lame-o.

if i attempt a fish i'll post my progress and bombard you with questions. hee.

sure! man i was resistant at first- i did the same thing...
i still dont like following patterns- i usually go my own way halfway through...
i dont like rules!

i am so addicted to crochet.its inevitable that youll actually learn the language if you do it enough though!

clear as mud  Cheesy
i need to learn to read, i have no idea what anything is called.

you could crochet some lettuce for your little fishy friend. that would be too cute.

well if you need any help at all figuring out patterns or what things are called just aim me at tideturns
ill be glad to help!
i am not by any means an expert or anything but id like to think i can help out Smiley

He rocks!!  You should totally put him on a plate with fake lettuce when you wrap it! 

thats a great idea!!!! i may put him into a chinese takeout box- and put some fake lettuce in there or something...

oh dude, that's awesome. i'm bummed you don't remember what you did, my friend would love that. ha, i can hardly read a pattern anyhow!

great job.
i might try to count the rows- but i dont want to confuse anyone!
the body was done in spirals and i just pulled the bottom to be cone shaped instead of just circle...
then the actual "lip" parts the top part was a triangular part just decreased from a foundation row...
the bottom of the top lip is connected to the top of the bottom lip as a circle...
the fins were triangle also. the back fins were the hardest to mimic.... those are done in spirals...
hope this helps!!!

let me know if you have any questions.
