That's what I'm doing, Magenta. Mine's in all black.

I think it would be really cool and fun to do with 2 clrs.  but I am not good at doing intarsia.  No matter what I do, I end up having holes!!

I know - I end up with holes or weird tight places or colors showing through where they shouldn't be. Plus, I like the subtler look of the all black anyway.

I just started working on this about three weeks ago! I finished the back, but got distracted by finals and it has been sitting in my knitting bag ever since.

Maybe this will inspire me to finish! I'll post a picture soon.

Here you go.

1 jar honey
2 T. Instant coffee, made into a smooth mase with a little hot water
4 caps red food coloring
2 caps cochineal food coloring
1/2 cap blue food coloring
1/2 Cup hot water
1/2 Cup plus 2T washing detergent

Mix all ingredients together until combined. You can add more or less hot water depending on how thing or thick you want your blood.

This sounds awesome. Just a few questions:

How big a jar of honey? Exactly what is cochineal food coloring, and where would I find it? And do you use liquid or powder detergent?

That is insanely cute.

I made one too, but I'm afraid mine isn't nearly as cool.

This is Kilroy.

I was Wonder Woman..

I stenciled the shirt, made the skirt, tiara, golden lasso, and bracelets, and I put electrical tape on red soccer socks.

My friend was a dead... something. She came over to my house with just the red dress on, so I slapped on some insane fake eyelashes and blood.

Wow, you all are rather amazing.  Shocked

Can anyone suggest some good products for a classic 50's look (i.e. red lipstick, long eyelashes, etc.)?

I've heard MAC Russian Red is a good color; anyone agree/disagree/know of cheaper equivalents?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Ha, I have those exact same tan lines.

And that top is amazing. How do you get it to... um.. stay up?

Definitely do a tutorial.
