1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: need a gift idea for a metal head boy on: July 19, 2007 12:19:35 PM
my boyfriend is really into metal and plays the drums...i usually look for CDs that are somewhat unusual and buy him one (if i can find a good price seeing as how i am broke) also i made him a duct tape wallet that has zippers on it (they aren't functional but are used like piping) he has been using it for about a year now. you could always make him a shirt with his fav band(s) on it....if you used more than one band you could make a patch with a collage of band names/logos and top stitch it to a shirt or jacket or something....i dunno i hope that helps. i know sometimes music seems like the only interest to base a gift on. my boyfriend lives and breathes music so it doesn't give me a whole lot of variety when it comes to gift giving. if you think of anything else mention it cuz it might get you better results....good luck though because that can be tough!  Smiley

i think you might need two colors of chiffon...a light and  a dark blue and maybe a silk crepe or maybe even a taffeta for the bodice (depending on the weight of the fabrics) you want something thats not to bulky because that will make the top part look heavy so i'd go for a light silky fabric that still has some structure. and use the lighter colored chiffon again for the detail on the bodice

have you checked your local thrift store...all of the stores near me have vintage 80s dresses that are majorly sequined it might save you some money and time to buy one and remake it....like i dont know if whether  the sequins will just start falling off or not but if they do you could always resew them becuse it would still be cheaper to do that than buy a million sequins and i personally love to look at 80s dresses and see how i can make them look like they are from another era. you could also use panels from the dress and topstitch them on to a linen dress that is the right shape....and i love that dress the sequins are amazing but if you dont think you could put the sequins over the whole dress you could do something different like sequins on the bodice and sequins trailing down the skirt..or maybe to look like they were dripping like something organinc looking just a thought but i'm surethe dress will kick butt when you're finished!!! good luck!!
4  UNITED STATES / Maryland / Re: buy, sell, trade clothing stores in the area??? on: February 21, 2007 01:24:29 PM
the only store i know of that you can sell/trade clothes is Mustard Seed in Bethesda....i think you sell/trade there its  few blocks from the bethesda metro stop...right next to where the bethesda flea market is. actually you could try the bethesda flea market or eastern market if you have a lot of clothes to sell. also i'm not sure about Rerun or Glad Rags but thosde are in takoma park...and if you cant see or trade at any of those i would reccomend looking at takoma park area...they have a lot of vintage/antique stores so i'm sure there is a buy/sell/trade store somewhere in takoma park.
well i hope that helps sorry i dont have a solid answer for you but one of those places should work.
good luck!

i live in college park  but work with my parents over in jessup. as i recall there are few thrift stores in that area. i think one is called laurel thrift shop and i think the other is a salvation army. i dont know how good they are i just drive past them pretty much everyday in the summer. good luck!

enamel should work...i guess its latex enamel...it comes in spray cans but im not sure whether it comes in pints or not. but yuo can use tape or paper or something to mask of that parts you dont want to be painted so that you can use the spray kind. good luck!
7  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Group Costumes on: September 10, 2006 08:14:09 AM
how about dressing up as characters from Grease? (you know the pink ladies and the t-birds) or wizard of oz with the munchkins...or other various musicals because most musicals have a few scenes with group(s) that have 11 people or more. good luck!

i'm sorta pear shaped...i'm more that than anything else i guess...but i've always found that A-line skirts work nicely. although thats a common suggestion, i'm sure, i hope i helped you...or anyone for that matter!
9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Finished Present for my Boyfriend on: June 23, 2006 09:52:00 AM
I made this sock doll for my boyfriend. He's a drummer so the cape has crossed drumsticks inside of the letter "c" (for his name) I thought i would turn him into a super hero just for fun. (i figure he can use his drumsticks as numchucks hehe) so i'm not very good with sock dolls but i think this one turned out ok and decided to use it for my very first post..

oh and i thought i'd just point out the super hero mask, gloves, and "pants" (we all know that superhero pants are just tights with underwear on the outside)

let me know what you think please
