Experimenting

I’ve been experimenting with different ways to make the PokemonGo hats. Iron on transfers are okay; spray on fabric paint however was not. After letting the paint dry then washing per instructions, the paint faded. I really liked the color too! 😦 Next up I will experiment with embroidering the hats instead.

Han Solo

For Halloween I wanted to be Han Solo. I found a black vest and blue pants at a shrift store and tailored them to myself. I already had a white button up shirt.

I had to paint the red stripes on the pants sides.

I ordered the blaster online from officialstarwarscostumes.com and had to spray paint it black. I then had to make the holster for it. I got the cute Chewie backpack from eBay.

handbook for the recently deceased

Oct 14, 2012 at 6:03 pm (accessories, costume, props) (, , , , , )

So I’m going to be female Betelgeuse for Halloween and wanted to make a prop/purse so what better than the Handbook for the Recently Deceased.

I found a cardboard book box at Joann Fabrics. I found images, touched them up and made them to fit the size of the book. I printed them on fabric printer paper, ironed heat bond onto the fabric, then ironed it onto the book.

It looks pretty sweet. I made it look like an old book with the iron by heating certain spots longer. Added purse handles and closure. I’m not sure if I want to leave the inside as is or put some padding or something in there..

unicorn costume

May 8, 2012 at 2:19 am (costume, sketches)

I’m thinking I want to be a unicorn for Halloween. I want to get a bright pink curly wig and put ears and a horn on it. I want the dress to be white with pearls and maybe some soft pink in it somewhere. I hope I can get to making it this year and can afford to…
