PostSubject: In-Progress or Concept Thread   Sat Aug 15, 2009 2:28 am

Well there's a thread for finished D.I.Y projects but not for designs, ideas, or in-progress projects!

Plus I just wanted to show off my steampunk costume idea :-) But I want everyone to post their stuff here too!

The costume design. I color in with markers and I was playing around with "watercoloring." The main colors will be coppery and dark teal. The red arrow is pointing to the color that the corset and spats will be.

The dress that I will be using to make the corset, spats, a bow for the hat and whatever other things may come to mind. Sorry for the picture quality, the fabric is like taffeta which doesn't respond well to the flash I suppose:

http://illiweb.com/fa/pbucket.gif

Other bits and bobs I've found. The colors of these things are more vivid IRL. The brown ribbon with flowers will go on the hat, as will the key (I have 2 of them!)

I have a fair-sized shopping list that includes brown boots, pants and jacket and other bits and bobs. My mom gave me a leather tool holder that you hang off your belt, which needs cleaned and oiled but it's pretty cool. I also found a thick cardboard paper towel roll which I am going to mod into a spyglass :-)

Not necessarily my design or concept, but I am working on this pattern. I'm pretty much following it and not doing too much as far as alteration except I might place the zipper in the front. Black, of course. I will say, there are a ton of pieces.

That's very pretty Ginger. An elegant design. I like the sound of having the zipper at the front.

That is a tad expensive since I'm used to getting one for $5 at Wal-Mart, but I got it on ebay for $17. But the thing about patterns if, as long as you stay within the sizes in the pattern, you can use it over and over and over again for many years. So, it's actually kinda worth it.

So, how hard do you all think it would be to make this outfit in real life?

Edit: thought the picture you posted was part of your signature.

It's kinda hard to tell since the picture is small, but it looks like you could find a simple pattern for the halter and pants. I can't tell if those are points in the pants or part of an accessory.

The scarves just aren't going to fly like that without placing a wire along the edge.

As mentioned in This post, I decided to make a bigger seated Goddess flanked by two large felines... here's what I have so far. There's a US nickel at the front of the throne for size comparison.

^^^Thankies. Smile It's going to take a while though... I'm just now done with the second cat. ...Not sure if I'm going to do anything with the throne, so on to the goddess I guess.


EDIT: Here's the Catalhoyuk statue that I'm taking inspiration from..clicky

Right now I'm working on a bit of textile design work, and dappling with pattern drafting (I'm in a pattern drafting class at the moment, which is helping a ton!)

For this semester after flip-flopping around for a bit, I've started to do some textile design work based on colonial New England gravestone designs, and have been loving that. I'm planning on using the textiles I make (which are largely going to be embossed velvet) to make absolutely luscious clothing.


My only problem is that my adviser (who makes the call whether I have to repeat this semester or not) wants my work to be more narrative. I'm still wondering how to achieve this. I was thinking of maybe doing a narrative photoshoot for each garment and including it as part of my review board, but I'm still unsure... it seems too much like the easy way out.
Maybe I should instead make some artist's books, outlining the type of person who would be wearing each garment (translating them into a fictional character, then making a diary, sketchbook, or scrapbook for them) and also include "artifacts" from the character's everyday life as part of my garment presentation? Any thoughts on this?

This is how the hat looks.. and don't mind the pin. It won't be there for long.
