I'm going to chime in.
I actually recommend model magic or a similar compound.
I made a mask out of it and painted it with acrylic paint. Worked great.

Just make sure you have something to drape it over for support while you make it. Smiley

If it were me (I'm stubborn)
I would try to overdye it and see if that improved it.

Hi, all Smiley I'm new to posting, but I have lurked for some time. It really helps my creativity to see some of the things other people have made.

That being said, I still think I'm missing something on this tutorial in regards to the bottom of the boot.

I realize that the bottom of the boot is the bottom of the original shoe. However, in the pictures, we see the sweater sleeve getting glued to *and covering* the bottom of the show. How do I get back to the original shoe bottom? Do I cut off the sweater around the sole of the original shoe once the glue has dried? Am I mistaking what the photo shows and I should really just be gluing the sleeve to the tops of the shoes?

Sorry to be all confused!!

From what I can tell, it is inside out when you glue it, then you turn it right side out afterward.

Will do. Grin I actually just want something that vaguely resembles boots for medieval events. Not trying to be historically accurate, more fantasy medieval-esque, but I need something comfy and don't care to shell out for good boots at the moment Smiley

after making these, do you think it would work with fabric that isn't stretchy?

Did you use a pattern for the corset?
10  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / "Evil" Garb ideas? on: August 22, 2009 01:03:17 AM
I am trying to make renfest/larp type garb for the boyfriend... Accuracy is not important, can be fantasy, vaguely medieval or renaissance style...

His requests:
Looks Evil.
Nothing froofy (no fluffy shirts or lace)
no fabio-esque open chest

I've gone through pattern websites, but I think I need a "look" to work toward. Patterns can be altered to achieve it, I just need a starting point.

Inspire me?
