After focusing on studies, freelance projects and general life it has come to my attention I HAVEN'T STARTED MY HALLOWEEN COSTUME, I haven't even decided on a costume. I came to this amazing realization while making a necklace for a friends costume. But while I decide on what to do, why not share a quick how to :)
How to make a TIFF necklace
I do not have a steady hand for carving free hand this small. So I cut a (2) stencil out of vinyl and cut out the Tiff- making sure to cut out holes for the chain. After following the baking directions, LET IT COOL. Since I had gold vinyl on hand I applied the 2nd stencil on top of the clay and attached the chain. If you have Gold paint you can paint it. I had bought the gold clay, but when it baked the shimmer came out more than what I wanted for the look of this necklace
Last year I made an awesome Maude Gutterball Cosplay.
Lets start at the top and work our way down on how I made this.
The Helmet was bought on Amazon and I went to the local wig shop and got Wefts in the red/length I needed. Each braid is 2 packages braided together. They are attached with E6000 ( Let it sit over night)
The bowling ball boobs alone took me over a week and 3 tries, Here was how it finally worked out-
I used FloraCraft Smooth Foam Hollow Half Balls, painting them GOLD and adding the finger holes( add some shadowing too).
The top is from a discount pop star costume I found at Party City for $7. I attached the Bowling Ball Boobs with industrial strength Velcro (this is good to do while you are wearing it- and if you are wearing a bra with the costume, wear said bra too)
NOTE: IT IS HARD TO DRIVE WITH THE BOOBS THIS BIG, so maybe find a driver
I bought a fitted pencil skirt at Salvation Army and cut it to the length I needed. Next I bought stick on craft sheet foam and sprayed all of them GOLD like the boobs. Cutting 2.5" strips and every 1.5" of said strip cutting up 2/3 of the way. Pull the backing off the 1/3 left at the top of each strip and stick it to skirt, starting at the bottom. After wrapping a layer around the skirt, Stitch a tack in each place where 2 strips meet. Continue all the way up and around the skirt
The trident is a devil pitch fork I bought (again at a discount store) and spray painted
If you have any questions on this just ask :)
Anyone else wait until last minute?? What are you going as for Halloween
