1  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.
2  CANADA / Ontario / Just moved to Kanata, ON on: November 06, 2007 06:11:32 AM
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).
3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Garter Design - More Flowers? (img heavy) on: June 29, 2007 06:22:52 PM
So I've spent most of today working on my garter, but I'm not sure what to do now.

This is the garter.  I'm quite pleased with how it looks.  I bought some matching ribbon a while back and used that on the sides.

I messed up when I was cutting out the ivory part, so I had to find some way to give it more length.  That ended up with me making these snap bits.  You can see the elastic where I cut and added this piece.  But what this ended up allowing me to do was to hold the green part in place without having to sew it.  So I can take the two pieces apart.  I think I'll have my hubby throw the green part so I can keep the ivory part.  It was kind of an ingenious idea.

But what I'm not sure about is whether I want to try and add more flowers to the rest of the garter.  I wouldn't add them like this, but it would give a similar effect.

So what do you guys think? Should I add more flowers or stop with it the way that it is now?
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Bride-to-be's most important item on: June 27, 2007 11:42:22 AM
So I've been a lurker on these forums for a while now, but I finally have something that I'm proud to share with all of you talented people.

My wedding is in August, and after about 6 months of putting it off, I knew that I couldn't any longer.

I started cutting the dress on Sunday, and just finished sewing it today.  I'm so happy with it, it came out just as I hoped it would.
