Thank Ginger :-)

I've got some more stuff.....I bought a camera off of someone at work but it's just not as good as my Nikon. I am suffering camera withdrawal.

Anyway, first we have bracelets for my steampunk costume.




Next up is a spiked headband. I had a couple of old, dead vinyl chokers with spikes so I cut those off and glued them to the headband. I rather like it.




The piece de resistance for this post is the corset. This is the last bits of that queen size duvet cover I found at the thrift store. (BTW, zippers are my new favorite front closure for corsets) I am getting to the point where I may feel comfortable making a corset for someone else. Maybe after I make the one that goes with my steampunk costume :-)

^^Well if you ever decide you would like to start making them for other people I know I would be happy to buy one from you. I think the zipper idea is superb. I know with both of mine they lace up in the back, so I can never put one on myself. Plus my lulu likes to eat the laces off of my corsets. I got mad... That was $150 corset that is now f*cked up.

I too love zippers as a front closure on corsets--provided they aren't historically geared.

You can always buy new laces. I know corsetmaking.com has lacing but they also have outrageous shipping charges and I think they have a $10 minimum. I saw lacing by the yard at Joann's for $1.49/yd., you would just have to secure the ends. You can also try looking for ice skate laces.

Thanks everyone :-)


And yes, if I was going for historical accuracy I would have used a busk but then again, if I was REALLY going for historical accuracy the corset would be made from white coutil and worn UNDER my clothes :-) And that's just no fun....

Do scrapbook pages count as DIY? It's my new hobby, and the only thing I have time for with school and all. Smile

These are the ones I made for my friend. I'm no stranger to paper crafts, but this is the first time I've scrapbooked.

Yeah, when my friend said she was going as GaGa I didn't see how she could pull it off...but she did a fantastic job. It looked better in person though...the photo doesn't do her justice.

I was actually being sarcastic. It's kinda like when someone says, "He walked out of the room nonchalantly." How do you do something chalantly?

Some of the Lady GaGa costumes would be easy to pull off. It's the more outlandish costumes she has made herself known for that would take loads of skill to make.
