EH MEH GHED SET YOUR DVR! And skurry pics

GUYS. GUYS. Oprah is going to have the polygamist family from Sister Wives on her Thursday show. MUST SEE TV, I believe. You have been warned ahead of time to get those Tivos/DVRs set up.

Also, tabaqui mentioned that she couldn't find the pics online of what my Halloween costume will be based on, so I have thoughtfully uploaded them and put them under a cut. WARNING: they have some big creep factor, but only one is what could truly be called "grody." <-- scientific terminology, only can be used by Scientists. Or Scienceticians, of which I am one.

If you google "Masters of Horror: Imrpint" [for it was a Showtime TV series] you will get torture pics, not my costume-inspiration. So there's your warning there, too. This particular episode was banned in the US because it's just. that. skeevy. It's mostly the torture scene and all of the other scenes, too. Just those reasons. Lol.



OMG the Woman is plotting. Most likely NOT how to have a surprise tea party.

TEE HEE, WHAT DO YOU SAY, KANJU-SAN? I am sweet delicate flower, no? [NO. You are not.] And check out the awesome head piece. I need to find a good quality Geisha wig, too.

Some full shots of the kimono - I am going to have a hell of a time reproducing that fabric I think. I'll try to get as close as possible.

One more...

No, I need to see the back, too:

I. DON'T. LIKE. YOU. You're about to meet "Little Sister," bub.

LOL. Meet Little Sister. OH HEY THIS IS UNDER HER HAIR GROWING OUT OF HER HEAD. <-- totally awesome.

SEE?! It's kinda hilarious and kinda creepy as hell. My favorite combination.

Michaels and Joanns today, hopefully I can find all of the things I'll need for the costume. Kimonos are pretty straight-forward by design, so it's just a matter of finding good fabric. I LOVE HALLOWEEN!

[ETA} She found the vid of the whole movie if you want to watch!

You are the master of disguise! This will be awesomely creepy and grody oops I mean, gross.

I, OTOH, will be going as Mrs. Roper this year. STANLEY!
Oct. 13th, 2010 03:02 pm (UTC)
YEAH, YOU BETTER NOT USE THAT WORD or my Lord (DNA) will smite you with freckles.

Mrs. Roper!!! Oh my god, that is so awesome.
Oct. 13th, 2010 03:04 pm (UTC)
Ohhh, that's gonna be creepy as hell! Nice.
Oct. 13th, 2010 03:28 pm (UTC)
I'm gonna make some 4 year olds wet themselves, YAY! <--no, I will hide the creepy behind a geisha fan because I'm not a monster.
Oct. 13th, 2010 03:31 pm (UTC)
LOL! Yes, save the pants pissing for the older kid! hahah
Oct. 13th, 2010 03:12 pm (UTC)
That is going to be the best costume.

awesome costume made of awesome
Oct. 13th, 2010 03:29 pm (UTC)
I hope!!
Oct. 13th, 2010 03:43 pm (UTC)

That is seriously creepy. I'm impressed that you're attempting to pull that off. I would love to see the final product.
Oct. 13th, 2010 04:07 pm (UTC)
We'll see if I can pull it off!
Oct. 13th, 2010 04:13 pm (UTC)
Ohh! I thought you meant the red-head with all the ... er ... facial acupuncture, and it seemed a really ambitious thing to reproduce and then wear for hours and hours. The drool, Stoney! The drool!

Hand-in-head is hysterical. I was scared til I saw that, and now I can't stop giggling.
Oct. 13th, 2010 04:34 pm (UTC)
The drool would have been EPIC! I couldn't figure out how to make the mouth apparatus without really hurting myself. (She also has bamboo under every single fingernail - GAH.)

The hand head is HILARIOUS and has a weetiny angry voice, too. It kinda made the movie - which up to that point is TOTALLY CREEPY - hilarious.

It does kinda take the air out of the creep-sails, doesn't it? HEE. It's a pretty damn creepy movie, and the Little Sister will be covered up for the most part - until we're at our adult Halloween party, that is!
Oct. 13th, 2010 04:41 pm (UTC)
How can children compete with such awesome gross factor? I think you have outdone yourself, although I can only remember the ghosty thing with the amazing porch you set up. That was you wasn't it? Well it was something creepy like that.

I'm so pleased we don't go to such lengths in this country. I have a low creep coefficient and would have to wear two pairs of pants.
Oct. 13th, 2010 05:29 pm (UTC)
The children cannot compete! Well, my kids can, because they love it as much as I do, lol. And yep, that was me as the Blink Angel from Dr. Who!

Oh, that would make me sad to live in a place that doesn't have exuberant festivals of horror. It's my favorite holiday, hand's down.

I'm making the kimono! Plus that way? I WILL THEN HAVE ANOTHER KIMONO. (And don't forget in Japan they've been taken apart by hand, carefully washed, and them reassembled. OH MY GOD.) (I have a pretty lavender and silver one from my Grandma's trip to Japan 30+ years ago. It's so teeny.)

LOL. Thank you, Mormons, for teaching me the ways of the Mormon Arts. I love sewing - I hate cutting out patterns, but I love sewing. We'll see if I still feel that way after working with more than 5 yards of satin...

I wish it had come with an obi - or that I didn't always forget to make one. It's like a super fancy bathrobe without it, lol.

I will do that very thing!

And what's going on with the cape? *pulls up chair and pats it* Let's talk shop. :D Is the fabric you have on a 45 or 54" bolt? You could make it easier on yourself by buying a another yard or however much, and blind stitching it to the main piece to give it the width you want?

Or are you going to work with a pattern you found that works with your fabric's width?

*hands you some tea*

Oh, I see. Hey, if that other pattern seems easier, then it sounds like it's turning out a-ok. If you have pinking shears (the kind with the triangles on the cutting surface) I would recommend trimming the edge before you hem - that way it won't be bunchy as you turn that curve. If you don't have them, you can cut them yourself with your regular scissors. There's probably a description in the pattern's instructions for that? Just throwing that out there, in case it's not.

I was going to suggest you do the hem last, but then I thought you might not like having all of the extra material from the hood on the table as you move it through the machine.

How are you making the Oreo? Two pieces of foam board connected with straps a la sandwich sign board?

Very neat that you found something black already! (If not, I was going to suggest the foam board I used for my angel wings)

Ooooh, I can't wait to see how you've done it, it sounds outstanding. You really make some great kids costumes Anne, you really do.

Fluff! What about some white felt glued in between the pieces? The super stiff stuff so you only need to glue the one side (so he can open the two cookies and slip in?) WHAT A COOL COSTUME!!

Joann's and Michaels both sell it - stiff felt. It's practically cardboard. I used it to make my bird advent calendar last year. :) )

YEAH. TAKASHI MIIKE EXPLAINS IT ALL, RIGHT. (Seriously, the whole thing is SERIOUSLY jacked up. I had to look away during one part because the torture was making me absolutely squirm.)

I freaking love Miike's movies. The dude is INSANE. The last 10 minutes of "Audition" are seriously the most effed up scenes in anything I've seen, mostly because it comes out of NOWHERE.

Oh, that's one I haven't seen yet! Sukiyaki Western Django! I'm adding that to my Netflix queue now...

Oh man, Audition. I had been told it was the most jacked up horror movie ever, and in the beginning I just thought I had the wrong movie. This isn't scary, it's a romance! Wait, why is she on her knees at the phone? WHAT IS IN THAT BAG OH MY GOOOOOOD?!

If I only had two other cool friends with me I'd have gone as the Human Centipede. LOL.
Oct. 13th, 2010 08:17 pm (UTC)
I CALL THE FRONT OF THE CENTIPEDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oct. 13th, 2010 09:48 pm (UTC)

(I may have to actually watch that movie. I feel like I need it.)
Oct. 13th, 2010 06:20 pm (UTC)
Heeee! Too cool. What fun! :)
Oct. 13th, 2010 06:21 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the link, I just added an ETA!
Oct. 13th, 2010 06:43 pm (UTC)
Not gonna be easy to do that makeup though... But yeah, the kimono shouldn't be to hard if you find close enough fabric. :-) Cool costume idea! (No, I didn't google anything about this. I would have nightmares for weeks... The angry hand in the head is kinda hilarious though! X-D )
Oct. 13th, 2010 09:06 pm (UTC)
This will be the most awesome costume ever.

I think I've blocked out most of that episode. I try to remember it and all I get is OHGOD NEEDLES NO.
Oct. 13th, 2010 09:46 pm (UTC)
Those were crazy - I had to look away when I realized they were going to show EVERY. SINGLE. FINGER. (I kinda wanted to recreate her fingers with fake nails. How awesome would that be?)

I just bought the fabric for the kimono and I AM SO EXCITED.
Oct. 13th, 2010 09:51 pm (UTC)
Aaagh! I can't wait to see your version of this. It looks like it could be fantastic!
Oct. 13th, 2010 11:00 pm (UTC)
We ate dinner last night at a fabulous French restaurant across the street from Oprah's studio.

Oh man, I LOVE Le Sardine! They make heavenly rabbit!
Oct. 14th, 2010 02:35 am (UTC)

Hand teeth!
Oct. 14th, 2010 06:11 am (UTC)
bookmarking the movie link, because I've looked for links everywhere!
Oct. 14th, 2010 11:53 am (UTC)
It's pretty grainy online, but if you have Netflix On Demand, it's right there waiting for you. (THat's how I originally watched it)
Oct. 14th, 2010 08:41 pm (UTC)
I watched it! Lived up to the hype for me.
Oct. 14th, 2010 09:23 pm (UTC)
AWESOME! And man, the needle/fingernail scene is BRU-TAL.
Oct. 14th, 2010 09:26 pm (UTC)
I definitely had to brace myself during that scene, although I knew that any Takashi Miike horror film (I've seen Audition and One Missed Call) would provoke a reaction in me.

However, I'd like to recommend a different movie of his, The Bird People of China, which is very different, not scary - more sweet in an almost Oscar-baitish way, but still pretty good.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
