1  RHPS: Transexual Space Suit in Halloween Costumes by GirlOutlaw on: November 01, 2009 07:57:31 PM
At the late night, double feature, Picture show......

Can you guess what I did Halloween night?

Here is my entry for the costume challenge.

I give you Magenta!

In her sweet Transexual Space Suit from the final scenes of the film Rocky Horror Picture Show.

*note the shoulder are even I just stand funny in heals. Embarrassed



front a bit closer:

Here is a reference pic.

This took about 8 hours, 2 yards black velvet, 3 yards of gold Lycra, 1 1/2 yards black pleather, 1 1/2 rolls of black thread, 13 feet of wire, 1/2 a roll of batting, wig, a white stick on wizards beard (cut in two and used for part of the wig) and a whole can of hair spray to style the wig (let me tell you I was pretty nervous when the lady next to me got out her lighter for the "there's a light" bit).

Being that I live in Alaska and the temp fell to -1 F on Halloween night (better then last year's -22 F) I decided black leggings would be better then lace panties, garters and fishnets Wink.

2  Saloon / Can Can / Dance Hall Girl - pic heavy in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by GirlOutlaw on: August 27, 2008 09:43:15 PM
Saloon / Can Can / Dance Hall Girl, whatever you want to call it. I have made costumes for my DD for the last 2 years for the GoldenDays celebration. Everyone dresses in period clothes and there is a big street fair and parade.

The first year (2007) my DD won first place in the kids costume contest for girls and was overall winner for boys and girls. Here is her costume for 2007 "Blue Birdy"

And this years (2008). They didn't hold a contest this year for kids, but we did receive many thumbs up from the parade floats as they passed and from others. "Pink Kitty"

Catrinau asked senders to post for partners that have received and not posted pics I hope you dont mind Linda P.

Linda P. was a Labyrinth fan so get ready, here is what I sent out.

First a group shot of everything

A peach in a jar from the Movie Labyrinth

Here is what the label says. (if you cant read it please let me know and I will type it out, I think it is super funny and many labyrinth fans will get it)

A small purse featuring the classic ball room scene, every little girls fantasy in the 80s.

A stuffy of a Firey (the version from Sarahs bedroom) I told Linda P. I forgot to add a tail, oops. This was my First try at a stuffy in 10+ years he measures between 2-3.5 feet from head to foot (I didn't measure him before i sent but i think that is about right).

A recovered Altoids (sp?) tin with Jareth on the top.

Inside it holds the ENTIRE SCRIPT of Labyrinth cut up to fridge magnets! (even though this was not the largest item as far as size it took me the longest to do of everything.)

A tissue holder with a b&w of Sarah in the ballroom.



Glass Magnets with covered box (used to be a mentos candy box)

I hope that you liked everything Linda P. I found it most hard to give up that peach! Oh, I hope you didn't mind the box I sent it all in like I said I didn't want to smash it all in a small box.

I had such a great time on this Swap!! I think everyone has done a great job!!

4  Transformers w/ a kick! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by GirlOutlaw on: January 07, 2008 12:18:49 AM
I made my DD a peasant top out of some transformers fabric and thought that it needed a "kick" skirt to go with it and I couldn't help it and had to make two hair scrunchies and a fiber optic hair clip too. Someone please stop me....lol Cheesy

The whole out fit (the skirt looks funny because I had to layout the pleats so you could see the transformers fabric)

A closeup of the fabric

The hair clip featuring Optimus Prime

I have to give credit to the following link for the top pattern:

Although the skirt came totally from my mind, it came out looking great but ended up to short and I will have to make another oh well. My DD is a HUGE transformers fan...well as huge a fan can be at age 2, lol. Bubblebee is by far her fav. Please give comments I would love to here what you all think! And I hope to post a pic of her in this outfit as soon as I make the new skirt that will be the propper length.

5  Pink John Deere?!?! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by GirlOutlaw on: November 16, 2007 03:50:24 PM
My DD and I were invited to a B-Day party with a John Deere theme. The night before the party I spotted PINK John Deere Fabric at Joann's and purchased 1 yard thinking I could make something cute for my DD to wear to the party the next day. Well this is what I came up with. It took about 1 1/2 - 2 hours from store to body without a pattern.

A cute corset type top and a bubble tulle skirt (under shirt and extra warm winter tights, were added for warmth as it was -5 degrees F the day of the party) I hate to say it but I think she stole some of the birthday boys thunder. Embarrassed

Sadly no I have no pictures of her wearing it but i hope to snap some next time. (ps- don't you just love my ghetto rolled towel mannequin, lol.)

6  Re: Bargain Hunter Swap Round 3 (aka the $5 or $10 swap) Gallery in The Swap Gallery by GirlOutlaw on: November 16, 2007 03:34:09 PM
I can't believe I am the first to receive! Here is what Rondas sent me!

A wonderfully decorated box to store all my spools of ribbon in. I have so many they are always getting tangled and unwound. *note the cute hats! so fitting for me as most of my ribbons are used on them.

A look inside

A closer look at all the beads! I LOVE the little baggy in the center with the star and heart shaped charms. There are also some that look kinda like mickey mouse heads (that maybe stretching a bit but thats what i think they look like, and they are super cute!) There are also three little bags of SWAROVSKI Crystals! And just the right colors (blue/clear) for a sewing project that i am working on! Oh thank you , thank you , thank you!

A close up of a small jeweled box, perfect for my DD and her dress up rings (they are all over the floor in her room and let me tell you they HURT when you step on one!) Rondas also sent two small containers of antique glass pearls and silver rhinestone bead balls (not sure what to call them but they are so pretty!)

Last but not least, a ribbon organizer prefab with ribbon! *jumps up and down* more ribbons!! (can you tell I have a ribbon problem lol)


Cost list:
Purchased example (ribbons included) 30% off sale price: $8.40;
Photo box was 50% off: $1.59;
Misc beads, embellishment items and seed beads from free samples and gifts: $0.00;
I decorated the box with sharpies I already owned;
Leftover beads from keychain: 1/4th of $0.50 = $0.125
Total: $10.16

10  Mini Top Hats Tute! ( pic heavy) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by GirlOutlaw on: October 04, 2007 06:43:49 PM
01/11/10 - This is just an update for the many people who have bookmarked this post. You may have noticed that I have removed all the photos of the hats that I have made. I have reasons for doing this but I did leave up the tute. If anyone would like further information please send a pm, thank you.

It has come to my attention that this tute has been reproduced and posted on various websites. That is great I am happy to share, but I do request that you DO NOT DIRECT LINK MY PHOTOGRAPHS OR CLAIM THEM AS YOUR OWN!!!!! If this continues to be a problem I will remove this tute.

I am talking to you!!

(original post is as follows)

My first tute so please bear with me, and if something isn't clear enough please pm me

What you need: Stiff Craft Felt, Scissors, Needle and Thread, Gluegun with glue, Ruler, Your choice of decorations

Step 1
Cutting out you pieces. Cut A doughnut shape 3-3/4" wide with a 2-1/4" hole (save this cutout it will become the top of your hat) Cut a strip of felt 2-1/4" wide by 6" long (note strip in photo was later trimmed to this measurement)


Step 2
Begin sewing the hole cutout to the strip. This will form the top and sides of your hat. Sew all the way around the top.

Step 3
After sewing all the way around the top you should be left with a tail DO NOT CUT THE TAIL (you will need the extra to avoid a gap later). Now turn the upper part of you hat right side out.

Step 4
Place the upper part of your hat into the doughnut or brim of the hat and begin sewing the two together.DO NOT SEW THE TAIL TO THE BRIM.

Step 5
When you have finished sewing the two together you will have what looks like this

Now trim the tail to about 1/4"-1/2" long and glue down to cover you seam.

Step 6
Your basic hat is now complete all that is left is to decorate! Enjoy!

Here is the hat that was made for the tute after decorations were added

I Know Lots of info , and lots of pictures but i hope this helps you to make your own and have as much fun doing it as i do. Trust me it is addicting to make these little hats I think my DH will be so happy when i "grow out of this hobby". lol Thanks again and enjoy!!


I Just finished my first Mini Crown and I have had MANY PM asking if I would post a tute for crowns. I will try to get pictures up today of my finished crown and have a tute tonight (my camera batterys are charging and i have to go to work so no time right now) SO STAY TUNED!!

Mini Crown Tute! ( as of 01/11/10 this tute has been removed only the hat tute remains)
