21  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Fancy dress/ costume party ideas! on: January 09, 2008 03:23:59 PM
I hope this is on the right board - I haven't been on craftster for soo long because of uni stuff Sad

New year - new resolution - be on craftster more *yay*

Anyway down to business.... mine and my friend's 20th birthday are a day apart so we're going to have a joint birthday "do". We're going to go into bars/clubs in fancy dress. The only requirement is that you dress up either as something beginning with "H" or "L" (the first letters of our names). We only decided on it tonight - and we have til the end of march :p we had a go at coming up with some stuff - I just wondered if any of you crafty lot had any ideas.....


Nelson (Horatio)
Hulk Hogan
Hobnob (I think this is what I'm planning to go as! As long as I can be a chocolate one! I have some brown leggings and plan to make a huge cardboard thing that goes over my shoulders - ideas anyone?)
Hells Angels
Hot air balloon
Human rights activist(!)
Head of state - ie King or Queen


We got tired after a while - we're gonna get a dictionary tomorrow (instead of revision for our exams!)

Any ideas welcome!!!

i know what you mean about living in halls of residence Smiley so is this a bought pattern? if it is *darn it* but still - a post of appreciation, they look v. professional (particulalry impressed with the felting - was it done a la washing machine?) and i LOVE the colour Smiley

thanks for all the kind comments guys  Cheesy about the shaping - i just followed the curves of my hands and decreased/increased as appropriate. I'm no great fan of patterns (most of the time i mess em up) so i just got the dpns out co 40/50 (need to dig out my notes) and then as the arm goes thinner decreased, until around my wrist i had 30sts, then from the wrist increased according to the increase in width of my hand.
does any of this make sense?!
i really could do with having a look at the notes i made - i made a "trial" pattern to see what size fitted best, that way adjustments could be made when making the real thing Cheesy

A good one is "Reason" by Hoobastank, in case you haven't heard it.   Grin
what a great song! I really loved it when it was first released but then didn't play it for ages- thanks for reminding me of a great song!

just some double knit that they had at my local store, when I saw the sparkles I was like "oh, I gotta get me some of that!" when i saw that it was also reduced in price it was like a double whammy. They're really warm plus they wash well Cheesy

Well, I'd seen quite a few arm warmers that I'd liked the look of on Craftster. So when it came to me doing some leafleting in November/December in the UK (which means it's super cold!) I knew I had to have some - that would keep my arms/hands warm whilst leaving my fingers free to leaflet (they also had to be pretty) hence the choice of yarn - enjoy!
Action shot:-

Left arm:-

Right arm:-

Close up so you can see the sparkles:-

Proof there's two(!)

Yet another shot!

Hope you like! (Excuse the state of my room!)
