    Oh, Jaina, your dress turned out beautifully! I don't know how you did it so quickly! It's spot on the movie version!

    Congrats!

    wow, toby is pretty swell. how does he get away with selling all of that stuff? nevertheless, he's quite a craftsman. which makes me all the more sad the bit on my lathe wasn't big enough for my lightsaber blades and all of that work i put into machining a scabbard was for not... i guess it means i'll just have to make my own saber!

    smile for capt'n jack!

    though my heart will always belong to 'it's 5 o'clock somewhere' jack from the hilton bar at the anime expo last year : ) he had the whole jack attitude and mannerisms going on...

    *swoon!*

    wow, your pics look great! i wish i could have stayed for the masquerade, but i had a 2 hour commute... : ( but congrats!

    Mirax, Maulested, thank you! We had a lot of fun with the skit, and I was pretty happy with how my stuff (both Elizabeth and Barbossa) turned out.

    I should mention that everyone involved in the skit, except for Barbossa, was actually a girl!

    And also! Millions of thanks to Maggie and Verdaera, for their fantastic info and input into the plum dress and shift! I'd've been lost without you guys!

    here's a random question- what time period is pirates set in? was a year ever given? i've wanted to make a historical garment and a pirates outfit and why not make them one and the same? especially as i'm about to make my first corset... thanks!

    The time period is the early 1720s, according to a magazine article.


    Really random question and it may have already been answered (sorry), but how is the cording on Elizabeth's shift done? I don't want to do little inaccurate 'X's up and down, but is there some other way to do it?

    Pretty sure it's just spiral lacing, with a single cord.

    Ahh...

    Nice to see others who have ventured in this area.

    Im insane by nature..so I of couse decided on insane costume.
    I did Tia Dalma's costume.

    Hopefully, I shall have a pic up soon.

    My family now thinks im crazy. All of that work to sew a dress...and then, tear it up, making it look worn. Definatelly something new for me.

    Good look with your costumes.

    funny, between now and the last time i posted, i made the rum island shift! and a girly jack costume, too.

    for the neck and arm details, i found a, i want to call it 'tatted' lace trim that was about an inch wide that had a perfect edge. it was cotton and woven lace, not the nasty poly stuff. i cut off the edge, threw out the middle and sewed it right in. i had attempted using cord, but that was a pain. the stuff is pretty common to find at fabric stores and pretty cheap. i just need to finish making the grommets by hand.

    woohoo. went to disneyland for my birthday. oh yeah, and my birthday's the day before halloween. but i still like dress up for no reason. : ) and jack's pants are very comfortable!

    That looks fantastic! :D I like the pirate idea without going the usual wench look!

    I have my Liz Pirate outfit that I wore to the premiere of PotC 2, but I need to redo the shirt and waistcoat more accurately. I also need to finish the jacket, though I'm really happy with how accurate I got it, using only the promo shots! :D

    Very nice costume, Maulested! I like the vest and the little beads in the hair. :) And good luck with your costume, Last_Chael!

    I got my island shift done yesterday...not very accurate because I don't have a buttonholer and the cord's too tight, but still very comfortable. The neckline's very low; definitely won't be wearing it in public! :p It was meant to be more of a nightgown, anyway, so all that stuff doesn't really matter. I like it, though. :)

    I completed my pirate captain costume before Halloween, wore it to work a few times and out trick-or-treating. ;)
    Now I finally got some better pictures of it:

    [image=http://i25.photobucket.com/albums/c65/TKvanB/Pirates/Img_0035.jpg]

    I still want to weather it a bit more (including the hands) and depending on the type and duration of the events I'll wear it to, I might work on a prosthetic skeleton face & make-up sometime.
    I'm sure that eventually there will be more applications for this one. Maybe my husband & daughter will go 'pirate' eventually too. ;)
    ....I'd love to make an 'Elizabeth' dress for her sometime.

    Ah well..

    Here goes a 1st draft of the costume.

    *I like the indoor lighting..makes it look strange.. LOL


    This is only a dry run of the costume..I didnt finish the front panel, or add makeup.

    So..what you think?

    :-B Sorry to cut in, but I had a question for anyone who's used the Simplicity 4923 ('Jack Sparrow') coat pattern. I want to make a Winter coat from it, and I need it to close in front. Can the coat be closed comfortably, or would I have to alter the pattern?

    Thanks.
    Arrrr!

    Would anyone have fabric suggestion(s) for Eliz's nightgown? I've looked all over and can't find anything even remotely close...[face_tired]


    And great job, Ktala! :)

    Well, I made my costume, using a pattern I got from Simplicity.

    The boots I already had and didn't get a chance to search for better ones or add to them to make them go up to my knees and the bandana was made in the spur of the moment from some extra cloth I had.

    I used Simplicity 4923 for my pirate costume. I just used the vest though. It was realitively easy, but I had to make it complicated by wanting my vest fully lined and an altered collar.

    Here are my pictures:

    that looks nice!

    i thought i would be infintely more attractive as a female jack then a cross dressing jack. and the pigtails were just to keep my dred extensions from falling out when i was on the rides at disneyland. it's kind of stuck, tough. : )

    don't know about the nightgown.... i've been using historical pattern diagrams to make mine. i'll let you know if i find anything useful.

    Your costume is incredible! You look just like Davy Jones! Are you going to go to see POTC 3 dressed as him?

    Hey thanks!
    Yes, I am going to POTC3 as Davy Jones, probably in LA cause I'll be there for the Star Wars Celebration.

    I just posted this in the "C4 Wish List" thread, but it looks like (if everyone's up for it) that we could have a large group go down the street from C4 to the El Capitan Theater (next to the Jimmy Kimmel Show) to watch "POTC 3" in costume. Maybe Friday night or a midnight Thursday show, depending on what the programming schedule is like for C4.

    Awesome. I am hoping to be in LA for Celebration and was wondering if a group was going to get together to go see the movie. We're also planning on going to Disneyland that Thursday so that will be fun to be caught up in the Pirate hype. :)

    Can anyone suggest where I might find a GOOD Captain Jack Sparrow wig? I want it to look professional, not like a cheap costume wig... and what is a fair price to pay for one?

    It's not really "down the street" though. Especially for folks from out of town without transpo. The LACC is deep in downtown LA and the El Cap is in Hollywood. There's easily a 10 minute drive between them depending on traffic. You'd have to take the Metro or something into Hollywood. The normal trip requires getting on the freeway.
