lady gaga halloween

of course i was gaga for halloween (just like everyone else), but mine was somewhat homemade.
handmade components:
leotard with gold iron-on circles (leotard is from american apparel; i did the ironing-on)
one-shoulder bodice with the same circles and a couple chains sewn on (entirely made by me)
bow (glued together with a stud on the middle)

where the wild things are

for halloween, one of my costumes i made was a cotton blend hooded bodysuit for max from "where the wild things are".

goldsmith competition sketches

this year, all the juniors are making dresses to be displayed at the goldsmith mannequin showroom (on said mannequins). we met with dan yesterday and he looked at our sketches to determine which dress we would be making.
look 1: sheer shoulder yoke with grey satin side panels and silver pleated center front and back panels. (the scanner didn't capture the swatches in the right colors at all, so disregard them.)
look 2: simple grey velvet shift dress with a wraparound exposed zipper. (i adore this one. i'm going to make it at some point, hopefully.)
look 3: deep v-neck halter. the fabric is grey satin with a silver pleated band at the hem. silver round studs along the neckline.
look 4: v-neck halter dress with a bubble skirt made from grey taffeta. double collar with silver round studs. this is by far my favorite.
look 5: this is the one dan picked for me to actually make. the dress and belt are made with light grey velvet with a silver pleated raglan sleeve.
wish me luck!

men's shirt...for the ladies.

i made this my freshman year for a class and never put a closure on the sleeves or center front, but it looks cute belted. i'm selling it for $20 (free shipping!), and it will pretty much fit anyone size 6+.
