1  McCall's Costume M4622 Fairy, Bopeep in Sewing Pattern Reviews by indiexoxkittie on: November 04, 2005 02:49:02 PM
This pattern is soooo versitle- I used the fairy design to make a fire fairy costume, and what was wonderful was that the skirt was full enough that I was able to put tons of netting under it and poof it out.  So easy to follow, yet such cute results!  I skipped the lining part and just wore a leotard under mine.  And as you can see, I wore a red corsette over the bodice.

Do you know what gauge your wire is?

The wire is 9 gauge!  And if anyone makes some, I'd love to see them!!!  These are what I plan on making next for the Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade 2006-

I'm going to be an ice/winter or moon/star fairy (haven't decided which one) Cheesy

4  RAINBOW WINGS with tutorial! in Costumes: Completed Projects by indiexoxkittie on: October 26, 2005 10:42:38 PM
Sorry the type is SO SMALL but I can't get my pic to be any bigger- photobucket keeps resizing it.  If you just right click and save the pics, then open them using windows picture and fax viewer, you can zoom in and read the writing better.

Ok, here are the wings I made for my Rainbow Brite fairy costume.  These took me forever and they aren't perfect, but I am done messing with them.

Materials you need:

-Pantyhose (I got queen size to make sure they were big enough),
-Wire (bought mine at Lowe's- you want it thick enough that it won't bend easily, thicker than a hanger)
-Needle-nose pliers and wire cutters
-Paper and pencil
-feathers and plastic jewels
-hot glue and superglue
-needle and thread (I used button/carpet thread)
-something to make straps from (ribbon or elastic...)
-trim if you want to edge your wings

You could also paint and jewel the back of the wings, but I'm too lazy.  I don't mind what shows through the back though.

Tada!!!  I really think I want to take off the ribons hanging down though.

5  Napoleon Dynamite tee + stripey shirt= RAD for winter! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by indiexoxkittie on: October 22, 2005 12:01:55 PM
So, I'm not the biggest fan of this movie (even though I do live in Idaho.....shudder) but my sister loves it.  So they had a tee at Hot Topic with a Napoleon Dynamite theme, and since it's getting cold outside, I added sleeves and the bottom part froma thrift-store long-sleeved shirt to make it look layered, and because she likes longer shirts.  I'm going to give it to her for Christmas.  What do you think? Grin

I'm gonna try that myself! Just wondering how much it frays...

I just tried it- doesn't seem like t-shirts fray much at all.  in fact, I don't think I'll do anything to the edges.

 Grin Ok, getting these jeans back out of the drawer and reading what was written on them reminded me of what a complete dork I was my Sophmore year of high school Roll Eyes.  HAHAHAHAHA  half the stuff I can't even remember what the freak I was writing.  Huh  Lyrics?  A spaz fest? Wink  Who knows.  Anyway, LOTS OF PICS Cheesy
The front

The back

Captain wouldn't move, so he gets to say hi to everyone. Grin

So...I don't even know if these fit anymore.  In fact, I'm going to go check- hold up.

WOW.  Um.  I think my butt has tripled in size the last 6 years. Shocked

8  converese SHOE into PURSE recon! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by indiexoxkittie on: October 20, 2005 08:37:38 AM
So I did this a while ago, but I found them while cleaning my room, so I decided to post.  Sorry so many posts in the last 2 days!  Anyway, I had bought this converse "pencil case" I think from like walmart or rite aid in high school and all I did was add straps to make it a purse.  You can see it's quite beat up by now, it got a lot of love. (luckily I found another one on ebay 2 years ago and keep it safe for when this one dies completely)

So I decided to try to make my own shoe purse.  Bought a little shoe at the thrift store and added a zipper to the side (just unlace the shoe and open it wide up to expose the side and make it easier to use a sewing machine).

Then I hand stiched through the new zipper hole (what a pain!!!) a circle of yellow fabric to shut the top and connect it to the toungue of the shoe.

Then I added straps at the back (convieniantly there was already a loop at the back of the shoe to attatch the straps) and through one of the lace holes.


Unfortunately I used quite a small shoe, and all my stuff wont fit in there!!! Grin

Those wings are AMAZING!!! WHat are they made out of?

Well, I didn't make them, they are just what I am patterning my own after.  They are made from wire and nylon, then painted and decorated with feathers, jewels, and ribbon.  Here's the website that sells them, if anyone's interested:


My friend Joanna made some to look like theirs, and they turned out quite nicely.  She made them using wire from hangers and shaped them to a pre-drawn shape, and covered them with old panty hose which she then painted. (pic below)

Sorry you can't really tell how cool they are....I don't have a pic of them from the back.  Sad

10  pOlKa DoT shirt--->tube top! (FINISHED with shrug!) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by indiexoxkittie on: October 19, 2005 01:01:54 PM
I took the buttons off of this (which I made from a long-sleeve polka dot shirt and the collar of another shirt)...

And fabric-glued jewels on to create this with my version of the no-sew shrug/bolero posted by lynzi
