i'm making my own pirate costume. i drew up a pic of it too: (the one colored was the original, the one not colored is slightly modified so i don't freeze. also, instead of making the blouse, im using a horizontal striped tank top.
so, the digi killed some of the detail, but you get the picture.


oh, and the bodies aren't my drawings, i traced them to draw the outfits on Smiley
ok, so what its going to be made up of is:
-striped tank top
-vinyl brown corset
-patchwork skirt
-combat boots
-torn fishnets, diamond socks, and spandex leggings
-blazer-shrug with lengthened sleeves and corset
-various jewelry, cutlass, sash, doo-rag or wrap

and thats pretty much it Smiley any one know where i can get some vinyl?

much love

You where the chosen one!

And I looked up the materials on good ole fabric.com, I can get enough fabric and matching thread (in a pretty burgundy-orchid color) for about $13.  I already have the fringe, but it is white. I have a predicament:  I don't want to buy more fringe, but I don't have a good pair of white shoes to wear w/ the costume.  I have a pair of cute sandals, but it is varsity swim season and I can't shave my legs.  Therefore, I must wear stockings, and it feels tacky to wear sandals w/ stockings.  Predicament:  shoes? black fringe?  What to do?

Do you absoloutly have to wear that pair of shoes? If you could find a black pair of high-heeled ones that would look cooler. You might be right about the sandals lookin tacky with stockings.

and thats pretty much it  any one know where i can get some vinyl?

distinctivefabrics.com has some pretty cool ones and the shipping is free.

I'm going as the Phantom (from Phantom of the Opera), however, my costume didn't require any sewing. Just assembling different thrift store finds with some of my own clothes...

 I HAVE to see pics of this!!! My best friend and I are obsessed with that play!

i found the world's coolest fabric at jo-ann's and decided to be a mermaid this year.... ohhh my it is going to be fabulous. i am only halfway done, but i am doing the whole thing without a pattern (yay for bad ideas!) and i'm about halfway done. i'll post pics eventually.....
OOH! Cool! Good luck with this! u just might want to wear something a bit more substantial than the average mermaid or you'll freeze  Wink

My main predicament for my costume is the shoes... it's this real awesome silver fabric with black sleeves. I was planning on wearing my knee high leather boots but they don't look right. But I don't want to wear something too modern, after all the idea is to be an elf princess. Any ideas?

oh oh oh, we don't do halloween but I love to do costumes just to wear for other stuff, I soo wish that I had time to do this with you.  But alas, I have committed to too many other things right now.

I really want to be the Absinthe Fairy, but I don't have the funds or time to sew a costume right now (Halloween is also midterms week at my school).  So I was thinking about being Alex from Clockwork Orange, but I'm still not sure.  Any other suggestions for fairly easy but creative costumes?

Hey i was planning on going as Alex as well! Smiley

so ya, here is a fairly good pic of Alex De Large from ACO:

I'll omit the cod piece though. It's just too much for me Shocked I already have the black boots, and a pattern for pants. All I need are patterns for a button up shirt and a bowler hat and I'm done

dysfunction function, whats your junction?

I made up my costume this year. I'm going as "The Fairy Of Lost Things".

So far I have my wings done:

And my Apron:

The skirt is done, but I don't have anyone else to photo me in it so it can be seen properly.

I'm still working on a shirt or vest that will hide my wing's brace, but I can wear normally as well and not have to disrobe to get my wings on and off.

I won't be able to wear my wings to work, or anything, but I plan on hanging them in my apartment as decoration.

Oops, can't really read the apron pockets. They are:

Pens & pencils
Paintbrushs (with a ^ under/between the h and the s and an e over them)
Hair Things
Sewing Things

I'm making my own this year, but I've got no idea what I'll be.  Since I taught myself to walk on stilts this summer, I'm trying to think of something, other than Uncle Sam, that could incorporate those.  Any ideas?
