@LiveLong: Thanks! Being an RA is alright. My kids are pretty good because I'm in the Honors hall but they can get loud at times. My ex-residents are having a fit though because they can see how much I'm liking my new residents so quickly as compared to last year Tongue

@Jonah: Thanks! I would I could say the beehive idea was completely organic but it isn't. The bees however are. I do believe that is the definition of stroke of genius Smiley

Alright, so back story: I'm a resident adviser at my school. On move in day, I saw some girl with an interesting jewelry stand that was in the shape of a beehive. I was determined to make the same exact thing. I tried to find her later to see it so I can recreate it to a T but I never found her. My friend's birthday was today and I decided to make this for her. Since I just had an idea of the product, I basically winged it and, as Tim Gunn says, made it work Smiley

Finished product

Seriously, stroke of genius right here! I know the original creation had bee decorations but I didn't have any because I never found any at the store. I had my drawer slightly open and I saw my yellow purse clips lying there with the clips up and it resembled a bug to me.

Jewelry stand in action! Smiley

Bad pic, but the clips are most definitely fully functional Smiley Smiley

Dollar tree, what UP!!! Cheesy I used the metal backing of the filter. I only had 2

Materials used: styrofoam cone, styrofoam circle, lots of hot glue, a steel washing pouf, filters, garden wire, yellow purse clips, and spray paint that is styrofoam safe Smiley

Ahh! I've always wanted to make one for myself but now it seems... a bit high school for my current style. Really, REALLY good execution! Smiley

Thank you both for your input! I think I'll just buy some liquid latex and paint it on a homemade bodysuit and/or bought leotard or something! Smiley
9  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / DIY Catsuit/Bodysuit with Liquid Latex?!? on: July 02, 2009 12:49:29 PM
Hey all! Halloween is fast approaching and I was looking into catsuits for my costume to alter but they are oh so expensive (upwards of $250). Now that's a lot of money to blow on material that I'm essentially going to whittle down to almost nothing. While sleuthing for this said catsuit, I found liquid latex and the ads say you can make your own clothing and such. I'm curious, has anyone actually made clothing with liquid latex? I'm thinking of painting the stuff onto a plastic body form, letting it dry and then voila, costume!

Ideas and/or comments much appreciated! Smiley
