Re: HELP ME!!
- I often have the same problem. No one knew what I was yesterday,

wings. I could have been a fairy, butterfly, or a mythical beast. I
like to have people guess what I am. Or I tell them to use their
imagination. I sometimes get some fun answers, labels for the
costume I never would have thought of. Plus, it's fun to dress up in
whatever I can imagine it is might be fun to be. Who cares what
that's called? I hope you had fun, Melissa.
So I guess since this is my first foray out of lurkdom I oughta
introduce myself. I live in Berkeley, CA. I make costumes for
myself to wear to parties and for events like Burning Man and
Critical Mass. I really enjoy altering and improving clothes I find
at thrift stores and making costumes out of recycled materials like
bike tubes, hardware, and whatever else that inspires me. I love
simple ideas that turn into great looking costumes. My favorite
trick is to buy 2 pairs of tights and make one into a shirt. It
looks like a body suit, without the hassle of wearing one.
I love reading everyone's questions, ideas, and advice. This is a
