1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Holy Elvis on: November 05, 2011 01:42:26 PM
The night before our Halloween party my boyfriend's best friend calls with a "simple" request. Can you turn a robe into pants? My sewing skills are pretty basic but that's usually enough for Halloween. I said I would give it a shot. When he showed up...He wanted me to turn this:

into the Elvis costume of his dreams.
Hours later... here is what he got:

I'm pretty darn pleased with myself.
2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Black Swan-ish on: November 05, 2011 01:34:18 PM
For Halloween my boyfriend, Mark, decided he wanted to be Natalie Portman from Black Swan:

Here is how it turned out:

Unfortunately, I don't have close up photos of the detail. The tube top has elastic ruching at the bust and lines of sequins down the front to give the illusion of boning. The feathers were hot glued on while he was wearing it (he wasn't too happy about that one). The tutu was created after reading a number of tutorials on here.  I also applied all of his makeup and styled the wig. My favourite part was seeing him try to put the tights on.

He liked it so much he wanted to give himself the best costume ribbon at our Halloween party.

Thanks so much. I really appreciate the feedback.

My boyfriend also went as a pun. He wore a business suit and a birthday hat. He was in his birthday suit. I still can't decide if i think thats funny or not.

I made the dress from a simplicity pattern. It was my first time using a pattern so I was rather pleased with how it turned out. The gloves I bought at the dollar store but took in to make them fit. The helmet I spray painted gold and yes, the light does work.
I was also wearing shoes covered in gold ribbon and a necklace with a little shovel charm on it that I made out of cardboard and spray painted gold.

This monday the 25th of September at The Ship. 7pm.

The plan is to have it every week but I guess it depends on interest and what not.
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Need etched wine bottle ideas on: September 09, 2006 06:33:03 PM
I'm throwing my boyfriend a surprise party for his 25th birthday at the end of September. He makes wine. One of his presents is going to be a set of etched/personalized wine bottles.
Any suggestions on what I should etch on there? Anyone have any good wine humor?

I'm not sure where the minty stuff was bought. Maybe from a dentist supplier, I'm not sure. It was a powder that was mixed with water. It was pink and set in two minutes, if that helps at all.
For preparation of girly parts everyone was required to shave or trim hair to 1/4 inch or less. The mold stuff sticks to hair and will even pull out stubble in some cases. Most people shaved and the results were good.
