1  ADULT: Zike Zake Zeke Zake, Hoi Hoi Hoi! in Halloween Costumes by geewillikers on: November 03, 2007 06:55:04 PM
So here is my costume, a German bar wench.  I thought it would be a cool costume because they're cute and you get to wear a corset, too.  I actually made it for an assignment in my theater costuming class but I wore it for Halloween, too.

This is me in my room

....and this is me and my bestest friend at my work

2  googly-eyed shirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by geewillikers on: November 10, 2005 06:02:16 PM
I bought this black button up shirt years ago for band concerts but now that I'm not in band anymore the shirt has become useless and a little too small.....soooo I decided to cut off part of the sleeves and make a panel in the front with buttons that have googly eyes on them.  It's sooo cool

that's the front

and more

and the sleeve details

and after it was finally done I decided I wanted to make a huge hair bow like the ones you see in cartoons

I decided I wanted to be a fairy this year becuase I pretty much had everything I needed to make it in my room, Then I forced my friend to throw a party so that I would have something to wear it to, because I haven't found anyone to trick or treat with me.  I just might be a little too old for it anyway (I'm 21).  Finished it this morning finally so here goes....
that's the main part, minus the wings becuase I didn't have them done

and there's a close-up of the top

and the wings I just finished...YAY!!

The wings were inspired by the goodbye scissors tutorial http://www.livejournal.com/community/goodbyescissors/51737.html#cutid1

4  boy do I love ms pacman in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by geewillikers on: September 01, 2005 12:42:42 PM
ok so I "found"   Grin this little girl's jacket in our lost and found at work (I work at a theme park).  Anyhoo I couldn't wear it because it was like a kids size 8 ssooooo I cut off the sleevies and added some embellishments, then decided it needed something more.  I knew I wanted a pacman theme so my sister suggested painting a maze on the back and lo and behold I did it.  I've only finished the back so far though.  I'm going to sew on fruit shaped buttons on the front if I ever get around to it. 

This is how it began, tracing the design on with a disappearing ink fabric pen.

Painted it with regular fabric paints.....took quite a while because the fabric just absorbs the paint.

I kinda half assed it after a while because I got tired of trying to keep the lines straight.  I still think it's super cute though

And here is me wearing it......
plus the sleeve detail

....and the back, though it's hard to see anything

and I didn't spend anything on the jacket....wow

I finally decided that I wanted to be able to wear this No Doubt shirt I bought.  It was a large but I've fixed it up a bit and added a few things to make it more me.

this is me wearing it

and then I decided to put some lyrics on it with some regular acrylic paint (was that a good idea?)

You can't really tell but there is black and white striped ribbon going down the sides.  Oh well I love this shirt so much.  By the way my little sister wanted me to mention that's her finger in the last picture....dang siblings
