Howdy! I’m Brianne from Ali Cat & Co. Thank you Amy, Tasha, Maegen, and Karen for having me today! When I saw the casting call for Crafting Con, I knew I wanted to be a villain. I mean…I, uh…yea, I knew I wanted to be a villain. Won’t pretend that isn’t a true statement. We all have our dark side.
I’ve had Retro Butterick 5556 sitting on my desk for some time now waiting for a special project. Villain IS a special project. Therefore I needed to pick an evil female to match the pattern.
Maleficent first came to mind. She is the most incredible female villain EVER and I could totally rock my pattern out in black and purple. But I thought that was too easy of a choice. Sigh, it would have been fab.
So I thought and thought and thought. Finally gave up thinking on my own and turned to Google.
Aha! White Witch of Narnia aka Jadis, Yes! I can work with that.
Here we have it. My everyday Villain White Witch dress.
The exterior is white satin and the lining is a cotton/poly blend.
Next month, I will have a more in-depth review of the pattern and any alternations I did on my blog.
Now I have a tutorial for you beautiful readers on making a crown using Peltex and rhinestones.
- Pellon Peltex 70: Peltex is 20″. If your measurement is under that amount then you can 1/3 yard. If your head measurement is more than 20″, then you will need to purchase that many inches (see below).
- Spray paint-choice of color. I recommend to also get spray paint primer
- Box ‘o’ rhinestones
- glue gun
Our giveaway this month is from Fabricworm
This month we have opened the linky party to ANY COSTUME! That includes last Halloween and this one. We are planning to leave the linky open a week past Halloween to allow for late entries, just in case you can’t get pictures of your costume until the 31st. And don’t forget, it’s ALL COSTUMES, adults as well as kids.
