1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Reconned Batman Costume (Now Completed!) on: November 03, 2010 09:49:28 PM
Here is my completed Batman costume! I'm really happy with how the whole thing turned out.

The utility belt was made by my mom. She made 4 small pouches that close with velcro, and have straps on teh back so they can slide on and off any belt easily. It was great, because I was able to hold my keys, ID, cell phone, camera, tampons and whatnot on me while most of my friends were only able to shove a few essential things in their bras.

I was also super excited about my boyfriend's Riddler costume. The question marks on his tie, hat, as well as one you can't see on his back and the mask are all cut out of a single purple t-shirt I found. I would have put on more, but, smart person that I am, I began sewing only an hour before he showed up at my place. :/

He attached the question mark to the top of his cane and spray painted it gold himself.

I think we were a pretty big hit. People passing us by going to various parties kept telling us they liked our costumes. Smiley

I have a bit of an obsession with Batman. I've recently been bemoaning the fact that there seems to be a lack of superhero clothing for girls, especially in the underwear department. Shirts with the Batman logo are around $20 a pop. So, being a crafty girl, I decided to make my own.

I made a stencil out of Bristol board, and used Shiva paintstiks to fill them in.

The shirts and underwear I already had. The stencil materials and paint sticks we already had lying around. So the cost for the whole thing was $0.  Grin
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Reconned Batman Costume (Completed!) on: October 10, 2010 10:31:21 PM
Hey, there, Craftsters!

I just finished doing some serious recons for my Batman costume, which I plan to wear this Halloween.

I started with a child's Batman costume, which I bought two years ago for a performance at college. Since it was made for a little boy, it was the opposite of sexy on me.

A lot of hand-sewing and one Batman movie later (I'm absolutely terrible on the machine), I cut the costume up and sewed it into a pair of gauntlets and a halter top. Here's the end result!

Entire ensemble, with bonus cape!

This obviously isn't my entire costume. Everything else I'm going to wear is back at college, and I still need to pick up a Batman mask.

I might post pictures of the entire outfit closer to Halloween. Thanks for looking!

Those shoes are fricking adorable.

My roommate last year loved Big Bang.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Saturday Afternoon T-shirt Recon on: February 28, 2009 03:02:54 PM
Back at the beginning of the year, I got a really cute shirt with an owl on it that a friend of mine was giving away. It was a child's large, though, so it was a little boxy on me.  Today I didn't feel like doing research for my presentation on Tuesday, so I decided to recon the shirt. I adjusted the fit a little by sewing a sash on it that I could tie. I also tried my hand at reverse applique for the first time and appliques on a moon and star. Here's the finished product:

Sorry that the image is flipped. I had to use my computer's camera, since my real one is broken.

The black fabric is from a t-shirt of mine that shrunk way too much in the wash.

When I was in 5th grade (so for you this would obviously have to be re-thunk a little), I was Madeline from the Madeline series. I had a schoolgirl-esque corduroy dress with a Peter Pan collar and a sash, wore a white straw hat, and carried a stuffed dog with me (I'm not drawing a blank on the name of the dog). Of course, since I was only 11, I did proper rather than sexy schoolgirl for the look.

The Harry Potter series always has plenty of ideas. Rita Skeeter, maybe? You could hit up a costume shop for a pair of horridly tacky cat-eye glasses and a drug store for garish nailpolish, and carry around a quill pen.

Or what about one of the Greek goddesses? Aphrodite is totally overdone, but you could do Demeter, Persephone, Artemis, Athena, Hera... the possibilities are endless.

are they water proof?   Huh I want to do that to a pair of hightops. awesome job btw!

I don't really think they're water proof. The Mod Podge gives it a slight waterproofing, but I still wouldn't wear them out in the rain or anything.

that's a great deal (well, in USD at least), and you did a great job reconning that pillowcase. it gives me an idea for something to do with a pillowcase of mine that needs to be turned into something else.
