1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Snow White in Mario-land on: November 01, 2009 04:47:08 PM
I sewed my own labcoat last year, for my Dr. Horrible costume so I thought how hard can a Snow White costume be?

(The full effect)

I made the skirt with that wonderful circle skirt tutorial (http://www.whatthecraft.com/tuts/circ.htm) but decided to make a stiff waistband with a zipper and hook & eye closures. I used a bedsheet from the Salvation Army, but wore a slip underneath since it was see-through.

(Very Wrinkly after a night in the rain)

I sewed strips of red ribbon to the sleeves of a puffy white shirt. I also took in the sides since I didn't want it to look lumpy under the tank top bodice.

I added a strip of the sheet to the front of my tank top and used white felt to make a collar.

(You can see the stitches now, but they were hidden when I wore it. The collar could go  up, flat, or folded)
I used more red ribbon for the headband. I especially like the bow.

I love Joss Whedon. I love Halloween. So I decided to combine the two, and despite a complete lack of sewing experience - buttonholer? What? - I chose to make a wicked cool labcoat and some custom goggles for Halloween.
The whole look (there are slits down the side, not visible):

The goggles - primer, spray paint, prescription bottle caps and gatorade lids:

Nefarious schemes:

Anyone have advice on how to make a neater buttonhole? When I used the thread ripper to open it up, it also cut the surrounding thread.

I made a lab coat for Halloween and everyone kept asking if I was Beeker. These Muppet heads are absolutely amazing - maybe I'll try to be Beeker next year.

What a great group idea! I drew a little design on my Halloween costume and now my boss wants me to plan the department's costumes for next year. Perhaps we shall all go as crayons, or office supplies.

This is amazing! I wonder what it would look like bleached on a black shirt?
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Buckskin on: January 22, 2005 05:48:06 PM
I have 2 yards of cured buckskin.  I was wondering what to do with it, other than make moccasins.  I would make leggings, but there is an awkwardly situated bullet hole in the middle of the fabric.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Handkerchiefs on: May 17, 2004 03:03:14 PM
Does anyone know what I could do with old handkerchiefs?  Most are too small to use as headkerchiefs, but are pretty nonetheless.
