clean craft room

Filed under: creative, crafts, costumes — suzanne henderson @ 2:50 pm

it’s sad when you’re working on lots of projects but don’t feel like taking documentary types of photos because your space is such a mess. Alex is still working on her book report bag project and I’m having to peel away little corners of space to finish her costume — mine is already done.

As for my costume, I’ve decided that it is way too boring for a burner Halloween party. So, if the table gets cleared off and Alex’s costume completed, I’ll be scrambling to make another costume for Saturday’s party and will wear the first one all day on Halloween instead.

electric blue furry chaps

I finally made something! My honey needed a costume for NYC Decom. He was going to rent a cowboy costume, but the price and time to do that didn’t work out. So this evening, we went to the fabric store, bought 1.5 yards of electric blue fur and 1 yard of neon green felt.

Diva Costume

Filed under: costumes — suzanne henderson @ 10:26 pm

Yes, one more thing on my to-do list.

I love the Diva in the 5th Element. I’d love to make something just like that costume, but I have no clue where to begin. But at least I’ll start thinking about it now. Here is the site that I’m going to start with:

Otakon ‘03 Costume

Filed under: creative, costumes — suzanne henderson @ 11:37 pm

Since I’ve been so taken with Revolutionary Girl Utena, I think I’ll make a costume from that series for Otakon. Now, I simply have to decide on which character I want to be and find some good ideas for the costume. So far:

Plain Uniform

Fancy Uniform

Hopefully it won’t be too boring or over done. But since it’s the only real anime series I’ve watched, it seems a fitting choice.

Chocolat dancer

Filed under: costumes — suzanne henderson @ 1:31 am

Has anyone noticed the dance at the fertility celebration held on easter in this movie? I want to make her dress–sleeves actually. I’ve gone throug the movie with pause and slow motion on enough times that I think I hae a good enough indication of what I need. That is going to be alot of fabric.

Belly Dance Two

Filed under: costumes — suzanne henderson @ 5:13 pm

Okay, I shouldn’t be allowed to start another bellydance project before finishing the first one, but oh well. Saw a performance at Alchemy last week with some awesome costumes that I want to make. Will be making one for my friend Kathleen as well. Right now, it’s just plan since I need to get to work on the Geisha costumes first.

As things will happen on channel, I will be making a traditional Geisha outfits for my friend Phil and myself. These should be ready for Spring PDF in May. I’m starting on them now because it sometimes takes me a while to get things finished.

Sara and I are going to a bellydancing workshop offered by Philadelphia Tribal Bellydance. I looked at some of the photos on their website and some on the vendor sites they listed. I’m going to make a skirt, pantaloons, choli (top), and hip scarf.

May 22, 2003 - We never made it to the workshop, but are doing a blacklight performace at PDF.
