y'all are gonna hate me for this one:

I did my costume today...........it was finished in about an hour and a half. I made a tshirt dress in black and yellow and painted the batgirl symbol on it with fabric paints. I made a tube top from a black tshirt, and a panel skirt from another black tshirt and a yelllow tee. I attached them both, added straps, and voila!

It cost me 50 cents to make. and it is super cute. Pics to come soon

If speaking my mind gets me in trouble with the establishment,then I never want to be silent

Tenille, I love it!! 

I was actually thinking about being Jem this year!  I'm going to a party where they're going to have a best couples costume award... I'm totally going to try to get my boyfriend to dress up like Rio, it'd be hilarious.  He wouldn't be too hard.. he'd just need purple hair.  I'm getting a wig tomorrow and I'm going to look at some wrap dress patterns for this dress: http://www.jemandtheholograms.net/images/PDVD_113.jpg

I'm so excited!

Since Halloween is my favorite holiday of all time I finally decided to share my outfit for this year. I had originally wanted to be an old-fashioned courtesan but my odds for finishing a corset (never made one before) in 4 weeks is not good. So! I came up with this:

I wanted it kinda short but I'm doing the full-length tail sash in the back. I have this really cute soft cotton fabric:

And I'm going to do the trim/obi/details in red with gold accents.

I'm really excited! Especially since I found the perfect shoes:

Now I'm off to start altering my pattern...

omg, i have that same exact fabric...isn't it wonderful? i fell in love with it at joann's and had to have it, luckily i had a 40% off coupon, cause there's no way i could have afforded the $8/yard normal price!

i was actually thinking about making myself a kimono-style blouse out of it, so i'll be waiting to see how your costume comes out!

You must share how that goes! Are you going to make it so it opens in the front and the back or just the front? I had considered making the bibfront gown from Patterns of Fashion but I didn't know if I was up to it. Wink Drafting - kinda scary.....
It's just going to open in the front. Koshka the cat has a wonderful page about her drop front and I'm using that as a guide. I don't draft patterns either. I modify them to my liking and size. For the stays I used the corset generator at the Elizabethan Costuming Page. I'll base my shift off of the generator on that site too.

I'm working on a Boba Fett (Star Wars) costume.  This is the second year that I'm cross-dressing for Halloween...Anyways, this is what I've got so far:

The green parts were cut from a plastic trash can, then spray painted in layers with toothpaste used as a masking agent for the bullet holes.
The vest that the armor plates are attached to is twill, I quilted the sleeves (even though you can't see them...) and the neck-cover.
I still need to make or recon a jumpsuit, some knee guards, make a cardboard helmet and jetpack, make some guns, and miscellaneous belts.

Excuse the midrift; I had just finished hot-gluing the armor to the vest...Without wearing a shirt underneath...Sometimes I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed  Tongue

everyone's costumes are wonderful so far! I can't wait to see more, especially finished products!

I have a question for everyone: Is there a pattern I may be able to use for the shirt in V's costume for V for Vendetta? I have been asked to make my boyfriend's costume for this year and this is what he wants to be (today, he keeps switching between V and Ichigo from Bleach). He is going to be V though because well... I don't feel like making a kimono, unless someone has an easy way for that.

I am doing something simple and being Velma, from Scooby Doo. All I need is to make the skirt which I already have fabric for, just need thread and either a bigger sweater so I can make legwarmers out of the one I have or orange knee socks. I have mary janes, though I would like to have shorter-heeled ones and red if I can find them. That's not a huge deal. I already wear thick rimmed glasses and I have a huge magnifying glass I can carry around.

mind you, we don't yet have plans for halloween  Roll Eyes
