1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Morticia Addams with a twist on: November 10, 2011 01:26:53 PM
Thanks guys  Grin

I was an awesome night, I was in massive amounts of pain afterward from the shoes and the hair and the tape (I'll leave that to your imagination...  Wink) but it was well worth it!

I love it, awesome job! It's really nice to see a different twist on a classic costume!
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Morticia Addams with a twist on: November 09, 2011 02:10:24 PM
So this year I chose a very traditional character for my costume. The outfit itself was pretty simple, long black hair and a slinky black dress (that I HAND STITCHED, let me just repeat that, I hand stitched all that damn lycra. Lycra was invented by Satan).

Just a few pictures.

Me and my best friend, I painted his face in like 10 minutes, it's the worst skull face I've ever done...

My other two besties and my Gomez. I wish you could see his cravat and his pocket square, I made those as well.

You can see my real hair in this one, but I was about seventy eleven drinks in and everything was starting to fall apart.

What's the twist you ask? (as though you can't tell)

I'm a dude.

Happy Halloween Cheesy
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Making a lime! on: March 25, 2011 11:04:43 AM
Hey all

I need to make something quite random for work and wanted to get a few ideas on how best to do it.

Without going into too much detail (it makes no sense) I need to make a piggy bank type thing that looks like a big lime. It basically needs to be a big lime, with a slot in the top for paper slips and some way of getting them back out again.

I'm thinking the best way to do this is with a balloon and some good old paper mache but would really appreciate any other suggestions. I have attempted to make a paper skeleton to but it looks like a very sad, lopsided egg.

Thanks guys Smiley

Thanks for the link. I think I'm going to go to the hardware store and look for something similar.

Thanks for this great idea. I made a few of these and they looked great... until the glue holding the light in place failed.

Does anyone have any suggestions for something that will bond the worlds most inert plastic to glass? I used normal white glue, then hot glue, then superglue as well as ductape and double sided sticky tape and it all just peeled off! So annoying cos they looked so nice when they worked!

I've read the story of all the rooms in your house so far (I think) and I love reading them. I'm so envious of your home! Your living room inspired mine. People thought I was crazy when I suggested green and brown but now I get loads of compliments. My mother even said "Beautiful".

Thanks so much for posting!

Wow this is beautiful!
Sadly, the only thing I can think of when I look at it is the book Cell by Stephen King. That's one of my all time favourite books though, so I guess it's not a bad thing! Tongue

Hello again Popetteers! It's been far too long since I posted here. I'm really impressed with all the new poppets I've seen (took ages to catch up, you guys talk a LOT!) And congrats to all you new mamma's. Those baby pics actually spark paternal feelings in me hehe.

Well, after discovering that it was one of my friends birthday parties this weekend, I realised I didn't have a gift for her. I'd made her a pink poppet last year (she loves pink, like really loves it)

After much swearing and some fairly major blood loss - jointing needles are sharp, be careful - I present Pink Poppet V.2:

Sorry about the crappy picture, it was really late when I finished and my house doesn't get the best lighting anyway. She's also not as lopsided as she looks, I think that's the angle plus my awesome photo skillz.

It's great to be back in the poppet fold guys, missed you all!
