Thanks for all the wonderful comments and suggestions on my last post! You guys are great :D So many awesome ideas, thanks!
Now, as promised, here is my second outfit WIP.
What I had in mind for this one was a little bit of batcave, a little bit of Beetlejuice, a little bit of (horror)punk. And after my friends helped me hunting down the perfect striped jersey at the fabric market, the pants part was easy. I took the pattern from an old pair of leggings and the rest was done in a few minutes. Now all I need to learn, is how to wear them so the stripes actually point straight down xD.
Inspiration for the tunic/dress was this dress. I love the shape but not so much the print and the sleeveless-ness. So I shamelessly stole the shape by using my favorite T-Shirt pattern and added some length at the bottom. Instead of slits at the back I sliced the sleeves. Stretchering the hem while serging it gave it the right wrinkly effect. It also has two pockets with a little bow on top.
I really like how it turned out. What was missing is a print on the shirt. I wanted to combine another two dress crushes and ended up using this stencil.
Ever since I saw this tutorial I was eager to try it. Good thing though, I tested it before ruining my dress.
That’s the result. Meh, not pretty. Maybe it was because I was not using real Mod Podge, maybe the motive I chose is just too big/detailed, maybe I just failed.
So, I was back to freezer paper and my shiny new crafting knife.
Here is a little tip: after ironing on the paper first retrace the outlines of your stencil with a small brush, then fill in the rest. After it dried a little, get a sponge (I use a dish sponge) to add another layer of paint, it will give you a smoother result.
Tadaa, I have successfully been boob-grabbed by a skeleton ^^. I’ll be wearing it with combat boots and another hairpiece.
What’s left to do to finish this outfit?
- Hairpiece (cyberloxx, felt dreads, etc)
To the craft room!
Liebe Grüße, Trisha
P.S. The next outfit is coming soon ^^.
