21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Let's bring the poodle back on: October 13, 2007 08:46:38 PM
Poodle skirts are just calf length circle skirts with waistbands.  I think just about everyone on here has made one at one time or another (a circle skirt, I mean).  This is actually a good time of year to make one, in a heavier fabric.  Corduroy, maybe, or some kind of wool.  Hmmm...  Off to the drawing board...

Wow!  Great minds, huh?  That thing is fantastic!  And so cuddly...
23  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Need idea help, like everyone else! on: October 03, 2007 05:37:49 PM
One of my favorite exchanges ever happened with a stupid frat boy on Halloween when I was in college.  It went something like this:

HIM: What are you supposed to be?

ME:What do you mean?

HIM: (gesturing to wildly complicated Borg outfit) Your costume. Is it, like, a robot or something?

ME: This isn't a costume.

HIM: (puzzled frown)

The point being, you're probably already friends with the ones who'll get it, and don't really want to be with the ones who don't.

Wow!  Thanks everyone!

Let me think about how I did it for a day or two and I'll see if I can't give some (very basic!) instructions.

So PRETTY!  Gawd, I love sparkles and feathers.  And peacocks and burlesque.  This is basically my dream outfit.
29  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Purse of the Sacred Heart on: September 21, 2007 06:43:03 PM
I made this for a friend's birthday.  She grew up Catholic, and still collects Catholic iconography in its varied forms.  Now she has a Sacred Heart of her very own!

It's made of squeaky acrylic from my stash, with some metallic-y cotton stuff (Knit Cro-Sheen, maybe?) for the flames, regular and metallic embroidery floss for the thorns, and Czech fire-polish faceted beads for the droplets of blood.

Of course I forgot to take pics of the cream velvet lining and the little red zipper, and to include any sort of size reference.  It's about 5 1/2" at it's widest point, just big enough to hold  tiny cell phone and a few dollars, maybe a lipstick, too.  I kind of wish I'd kept it!

What do you think?  Other than the fact that I take lousy pictures... Roll Eyes

AFA tensile strength, I'm not sure what you're looking at supporting, but I used it as the hoops for a full on Marie Antoinette costume, with petticoat and robe Francaise.  It amounted to quite a bit of weight, and I danced in it all night.  They held up fine; my waistband gave out.

And finding it is easy.  Hardware stores, home improvement places, and plumbing suppliers should all carry it.

You could run a thin wire through the center of it if you needed more stability. too.

I can't wait to see this when you're done!
