Speaking of grommets. I have issues with them >< A few always fall out, anyway to keep them from falling off? It always happens to me
I had that problem so I superglued them in. ^^;; I got the kind that you put in with the punch tool. I know that's not the best way to do it, but the superglue worked!

TR- Omg, genius XD I think I'll go that route!

Sweeny- The bottom lace is pink. I just dyed some of the white ribbon I bought and added a hint (like a pinch) of purple dye to the pink to get it a slightly pink lavender. I seriously thing Pink and Purple clash like a mofo.

nessa- for Belle I used the punch tool to make the hole, and for Rappy I just cut it with scissors because I couldn't find it D:

Beni- again for Belle I used the punch tool but for Rappy I lost it ^^; so I bought the hammering ones :/ both failed me Q_Q I'm going the superglue route XD

Arg-- computer ate my comment!

LKD. Go ahead and use the superglue for now, but I'd seriously recommend the awl for the future. They only cost about $6 for a nice one http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog/p...rd_0230 1026a Soo easy to use too. Just poke it through where you want your hole, and push until it's big enough. If you're using really stiff fabric, you might use scissor or a seam ripper to cut a few threads in the very center, but mostly, the awl just pushes the threads out of the way. Since you pull the eyelet through on the awl, the hole is just the right size and it'll snug up around the eyelet nice and tight.

I've never had an eyelet pop since I started using the awl, and I've tight laced several of my corsets.

Wait... by punch tool did you mean an awl? To me, punch sounds more like a hole punch that actually cuts a circle of fabric out (which would never be able to hold an eyelet! The hole would just pull out and leave fraying fibers), but maybe you really meant an awl and I misunderstood?

Sorry if that felt like a lecture. I just LOVE my awl and would never go back to cutting holes. --they ALWAYS ripped out!

Thanks nessa! I've got to get me one of those! I have a love / hate relationship with rivets.

I prefer eyelets over nearly any other closure! Not for everyday clothes, because they take so long to do up-- but an period costume instantly gets eyelets and lacing!

While we're still in the subject of grommets might I make a quick recommendation...

When putting them in, make sure your fingers are out of the way while you're using your insanely always sharp professional fabric scissors or else you might miss the fabric in the back and slice a 1/2 inch deep cut into you're
finger. This in turn might lead you to hit a vein causing massive, massive blood loss (all over your bodice of course) and will require a 3 hour visit to the ER and 5 stitches at 1am in the morning.

Oh no! Yet another reason for the awl! I've cut myself several times when trying to cut eyelet holes. Awl is sooo much safer!-- pretty much impossible to slip. Another option is a small knitting needle. The point isn't as sharp, so you need to start a small hole first, but you can use a seam ripper to do that (unless there's multiple layers of heavy fabric-- I broke mine

Thought I'd add more detailed info in case anyone cares to try the awl.

Instructions on using the awl to make holes:

http://www.renaissancetailor.com/demos_eyeletholes.htm -- This one inculdes instructions for hand-sewn eyelets (I've done this too-- takes forever!), but the first half of the instructions are the how and why of using the awl.

http://www.sempstress.org/skill/sett...-doll-clothes/ -- this one is talking about TINY eyelets, but it goes through the process of making the hole with the awl AND setting the grommet.

This thing http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog/p...DID =prd11082

I will get one of those awls *-* It sounds amazing!

Afterglow- Ow D: My brother sliced part of his finger off once when he was cutting parts for his mando armor O.< I've never seriously injured myself thank god. I once jabbed my finger nail with the needle while sewing with my machine but it just got stuck in there @-@ So glad it didn't go all the way through

I got the fabric I was talking about yesterday from my Mom's shop- I'll add the blouse of my list of things to do DX

After glow- Sounds like you know someone who experienced this. ;D

So am I the only one having oodles of fun putting together my gift for the Secret Santa? 8D I have one "main" item, plus a few smaller items and making this more of a gift bundle rather than just one big thing. It's so much fun!

Hey everyone!!!
For Disney I would LOVE to do two cosplays...
Lumierre from Beauty and the Beast!
And from my favorite animated movie of all time.......
WALL-E!
Lumierre could be tough mainly because I'm a sort of big guy, but it would be fun! Id like to use actual fire also!
For Wall-e, I adore him!!! He is the best!!! I'd like to make a cosplay without using the traditional cardboard boxes if possible! It could be tough but would be awesome!!!
Any thoughts?

I've been thinking through ideas for my secret gift, but I don't have time to actually get started on it till next week. Right now I'm doing a good job of avoiding the dresses I need to make. Stretch velvet and zippers HATE each other!

O________O ARE YOU OK?! Please tell me this did not happen last night -- Let alone on your new 'Punzel boddess! Oh dear.




My Rapunzel wig came in only it's not blonde, it's... copper. WHAT? I can't be Rapunzel with brown-orange hair! I'm going to email the store owner because while the wig is of excellent condition & quality, the color is nothing like the picture. Hrm.
