My hat is covered with fabric stiffner. The label on the lid said it supposed to dry transparant. But it's all white now!
  Shocked

Fortunatly, after a few hours in the sun, it turned black.

Costume was done in time for Elfia Arcen.





Everything fit as it should, worked as it should.
(un)fortunatly, I've lost a few lbs so I had to alter my jacket and made it a double row button.
Since Elfia, I've lost a few more lbs. So much that my slim fit jacket doesn't fit anymore. The pattern of the jacket is so it has no more space to make it smaller.
So for next year, I have to make (or buy) something else.
The pants and vest still fits and has ways to make it a smaller size.

May I please echo my comment in the 'Mother and daughter fairy' thread - wonderful! In terms of making the jacket slimmer, is there any scope for putting a dart into the centre back to draw it in?

Yours,
Miranda.

Thank you for the reply, Miranda.
I have pinned a dart into the back, but then my arms go to far back and the whole jacket gets warped.
Drawing it in from the sides is also not possible, because there is a side peice bitween the front and back peice.
Overall, it's going to be hard to draw it in anyway, because the jacket has a lining. Everything done on the outside, has to be done on the inside as well.

The best sollution is gaining more weight, but that's not a good option.  Wink

It is usual to take in and let out a jacket at the side seam.  Modify using the seam that has the least curve on it.  You will also need to take in a little bit of the sleeve via the under-arm seam so that the arm-hole still fits.  But well-done in losing a little bit of weight, if that is what you want to do.

Thank you, Cubinoid and Frances.

The jacket is not sold as of yet, so I can look into letting it in here and there.
For now, I'm still loosing weight so altering right now isn't a good idea. Better wait untill spring, when the festivals are starting.  Wink

Well done, sir, your ouifit & kit look great,  and you are looking fit & healthy as well!

have you considered taking your fairy village with you to events to provide anither alternative to
for customers to pose "in" / among, around .... ? 

posing kids in the fairy village may just draw in more customers!

really nice. THe first con I went to I saw a really cool trick someone did for a camera that looked like an old one. It was a digital camera hidden in a box made to look like an old camera. Flash was aimed up into a glass bulb filled with cotton so when went off looked like an old flash

I think there is a way I could make it work. Kind of...
The original design of this camera was a scanner camera.
A flatbed scanner behind the ground glass, scanning the image created by the lens.
It worked, almost. In artificial lighting it worked, but in sunlight it got white blurrs. Probably something to do with UV light on the scanners sensor.
Second problem was that the scanner needed a 230V socket and an old desktop computer, due to the old drivers of the scanner.

I now have a slide/photo scanner. It doesn't need 230V (it works on a charger, probably 9-12V) and it runs on my laptop and I think it has an app, so I could run it on my Android tablet. I haven't figured out if it all works, but in theory it should.

For now, I have another project running, but maybe later I'll give it a try.

The funny thing with a scanner as a sensor is that it builds up the picture slowly from left to right. So if the image moves during scanning, it looks something like this:
