Great work!

If you don't mind me asking, what is the weave that you used for this one?

I love this!  The color is great, and edging on the neck and sleeves is great!

Did you do this from a pattern, or is it your own design?  I'd love a copy of the pattern if you don't mind sharing Smiley
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: The Mad Hatter on: November 06, 2008 09:38:31 AM
Thanks everyone!  I got a lot of comments on how creepy the costume was with the mask.  I liked the idea of it though, since the Mad Hatter is a character from a book and he can look like whatever you imagine him to be.  With the mask, I was able to keep that illusion alive.

Toribird:  The original costume was here - http://www.cosplay.com/costume/164410/  I really liked her use of the mask and asked her if it would be okay if I did the same.  She said yes, and I ran with it from there.  The pattern for the coat was Butterick 4954.

Thanks for all the suggestions!  I'll agree that the Fabricland on Hazeldean is really not very good.  But I've been successful with the one on Marivale so far.  I hadn't found Rockland Textiles, so I'll have to check them out at some point.

I agree that we should have some sort of meet up here in the city sometime.  It'd be nice to meet some other craftsters in the area!
5  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / The Mad Hatter on: November 05, 2008 04:55:27 PM
This year, inspired by a costume I had seen on cosplay.com, I decided to do a Mad Hatter costume.

Everything was made from scratch except for the mask and gloves.  I started work on September, and was painting the final coat on the cane the night before Halloween.

The cane was the most fun to make.  I used floral foam and gesso to make the tea pot.  Unfortunately I don't have a good picture of it.

I wore the costume out to a party Friday night, with the mask, and to my own birthday party on Sunday, without the mask.  While I really like how the costume looked with the mask, it was hard to see out of at night, and was quite warm.  But overall, I think the costume really turned out well.

Hi everyone, I just moved to Kanata and I have no idea where to start my search for crafty stores!

I was wondering if anyone could let me know what areas in Ottawa are the best places to find bead/ribbon/craft/fabric stores?  I'll be taking the bus into the city and walking around, so street names will be most helpful to me.  Right now the only place I know of is the Fabricland in Kanata.

Thanks for all your help!  I'm hoping the selection of stores here will be better than Moncton, NB (where I moved from).

The original image is done by Suzi9mm on DeviantArt, and is located here.

You did a very good job with this, nice color and good job with the teeth.  Keep up the good work.

This is a beautiful piece.  I agree with your friend's mother, I would be wear something like this at my wedding (which is saying a lot since it is in 6 days!).

You are very talented, and this is just an amazing piece.  Thanks for sharing, and keep up the great work!

The choker is absolutely beautiful.

I'm curious if you make your own chain, or if you buy it?  I've been doing small amounts of chain maille, but nothing this complex.

Great work.

ughh.. by the way, before i announce you as my hero i need to know about this small detail.. lol.. did you follow a pattern or something?

The base pattern/design was a Simplicity pattern that has gone out of print (I don't have the number right on hand, it is at home).  However I modified it so it would be more comfortable and easy to make.
