1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Vampire teeth on: October 21, 2008 05:48:22 PM
I do Vampire LARPs so we all need really good quality teeth.

I have Scarecrow Fangs (the smaller ones). They are about $25 CDN and come with enough forming mixture to fit your teeth twice. You can buy the refills of the forming mixture for about $10 at local costume stores and also on www.vampfangs.com like alli.illektro suggested.

skinny and flat? even a cups can get pushed up  Wink

honestly, with a good heavy weight fabric (i use cotton duck) and well placed boning, there's no need to spring for the steel (haha get it.. spring steel.. a bad pun.. )

i mean unless of course you're like me and idolize dita and her 16in waist...

but yea.. i repeat.. you can easily get the shape with featherweight. just make sure you use grommets with washers!

Thanks a bunch! I'll be sure to keep that in mind.

Hi, I hope someone can help me out with this :3

I want to make my second corset (I made Simplicity's 5006 previously). I wanted it to look something like these:
So basically something Victorian, and over bust.

Would Simplicity 9769 be my best option? I have that pattern but it looks like it fits a bit low over the bust. I was also wondering if it would be possible to get away with featherweight boning (I am thin and somewhat flat...). Is there a better pattern/instructions for drafting that anyone could suggest? I'm fairly unsure about this one.

I was under the impression that I wouldn't be able to add a facing in that area. If I was to add a facing, I would have to cut small notches in the top of the slit at a perpendicular in order to be able to flip the facings inwards, if you follow what I mean.

It's alright, I ended up making the jacket in five pieces as opposed to three, so it fits considerably better anyways. Thank you!

I'm making a vest/jacket that's virtually identical to <a href="http://www.cosplay.com/photo/1469416/">this</a>. However, I do not want to add seams along the back where the slits are. Is there any way I can add slits NOT along a seam and still be able to finish the seam properly?

Thanks in advance.
6  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Doctor Who Scarf Knitalong on: March 25, 2008 05:48:45 PM
A knitalong for the Doctor Who fans out there.

Would anybody be interested in knitting their own Doctor Who scarf with me?

(An excellent website devoted to these scarves is located at http://www.doctorwhoscarf.com)
7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Sympathy Gifts? on: August 10, 2007 01:29:37 PM
The night before last, my next-door neighbor died of complications from MS. She was a mother of two girls, one about 12 and the other about 14 years old.

I was wondering, what would be good sympathy gifts for the family? I saw some of our other neighbors bringing over food, and as such a baked them a TON of cookies, but I wanted to give them something else seeing as we're the only family that lives right beside them. Any ideas? I'm open to any sort of craft, hence posting in Misc. Craft Discussion.

Thanks in advance.
8  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Stash-Be-Gone-Along? on: July 03, 2007 08:00:45 AM
I most definitely shall be participating in this!

Here is the state of my stash upon beginning:

And obligatory informations that I feel the need to provide about it:
1. Along with this, I also have a 500g ball of blue cotton and a 1000g ball of aran...stuff. The aran...stuff has plans for it, so I don't know if that's really stash-bust-able.
2. I won't be able to REALLY get a good start on this until I finish my mum's gift of a HP sweater. I do like the idea of occasionally taking breaks from it though, as I just finished an identical one for myself and stockinette is slowly eating my brain cells.
3. This yarn stash contains mostly full balls. The two primary reasons are that I ventured into fair-isle and colorwork very early (e.g. all of my inital projects) and on smaller projects that leaves lots of extra yarn. Also, when I didn't understand gauge, I ended up buying the wrong yarn frequenty but insisted there was a use for it.

So yes! That is the status. I will be using stash-busting primarily for Christmas gifts.

Cute shirt! I thought that was Pangea...
10  CLOTHING / Clothing Sewalongs / Re: Costume-a-long on: October 14, 2006 05:14:56 PM
Yay for costumealongs!

I'm making a Battle Royale female student costume for Halloween.

So far, I've bought a white blouse that, after resizing, I'll add some rips and tons of fake blood to.

And tomorrow I'll probably go out and get the fabric for my skirt and tie! My intention is to embroider the school logo onto the tie, so we'll see how that goes.

Chances are the embroidery on the tie will be the easiest part for me as I'm more of a fiber art person :]
