1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Female Ninja Costume on: September 27, 2008 07:12:34 PM
I'm being a ninja as well =D I'm making a short kimono. I found a site that gave what to measure to make the pattern but I'm not entirely sure if I can find it now ^^;
I was going to make an obi as well, but they're way more fabric than I'd thought

Did you happen to find this website? I think I'd like to go this route for the top. I kind of want to go as a sexy/cute ninja........Plus I'm in AZ and it will still be very hot on Halloween!!!

Thanks so much guys!! The costume is starting to come together (in my head that is)   I'm taking all suggestions to figure this one out. I will try to post pictures as I work on the costume

Thanks again!!

Alright, usually i come up with a great idea for a costume for myself. But I am stuck this year!!!! I can't decide what to be. I thought a girl ninja might be kinda cool. Well in looking for some type of pattern to work off of I had no luck. does anyone know of any ninja patterns around (that aren't too cheesy?)

I drew out an idea for the costume and thought maybe I can make my own pattern.....yah right.....

A vest like thing...

This could go on the back...

A dress version
I'd like it to be kind of form fitting. Any ideas or suggestions on how it should look would be wonderful!!!

I was thinking about making this costume as well but decided its too much work for this year....so good luck!

Anyways an idea I had was.... to create the boxy look  use a cardboard box. But because we don't want that crappy cardboard look just cover it with a kinda fluffy/scroungy brown material. You can easily create a pattern using the boxes dimensions to sew together the material and then simply fit the material over the box. You might have to sew all but one side to get it over then box and then hand sew the last side.

You could even stuff some of the corners to get a more rounded corner.  Use the same material to make pants =)
Hmm does that make sense?

Hope that helps somewhat

How about using the border of the fabric to make a cute belt to go around the waist of your dress?

Oh that would be really cute!! I was going to put a solid red sash..but I think I might try this idea first! Thanks!

Thanks everyone for the help!!! I decided to just not go with the border. I was starting not to like it anyways. I am almost done with the dress, I will post pictures up when I am finished! I am very excited about it though. I fitted it to my friend yesterday and have to do a few adjustments. But it should be done soon.

thanks again for all the help!

I think I might need a different pattern as well. Thanks for the help!

Maybe I will just make it and not have it the same all the way around.

I did a quick search for this but was not sure what it would be called. I am in the process of making a dress, a simple A line dress. The material I have is kind of odd (but my friend who i am aking the dress for likes it), it has flowers on the pattern and at the bottom of the pattern it has like a line of houses....I want the line of houses at the bottom of the dress but when I put the pattern on it to cut it the bottom of the skirt curves up and will cut off the line of houses. How do I make it so the line of houses sits at the bottom of the dress all the way around. But at the same time keep the pattern on the fold

Wow! It sounded simpler in my head. I hope this makes sense.

Mayber this picture will help....

We made african masks using plastic water/milk jugs! my students loved it!!! And they were very creative! i will post some pictures once i get them on my comptuer.

You can always do things with paper towel rolls (the inside part)...rainsticks, telescopes, different animals.

You can use egg cartons to make lots of different things as well.
 I will think of some more stuff later, I just got home from work and I am really tired.

Hope that gets you started.

I have been wanting to by something like that to hang though...But I was thinking it would look cool to spray paint it some crazy bright color and put it out side. i like the bird feeder idea too!!
