I cant find the map on their site, but if I remember correctly, it is difficult to find parking closer than the hotels, and even Pike Street market is with in walking distace. Seattle is on a slope though, so if your not used to walking around a lot, it might get tiresome. This is only the second ye...

You can get a Foamies craft sheet, some silver acrylic paint, 6 large paper brads and a strip of fabric. Cut the band front from the foam, and poke the brads through the appropriate spots (where the rivets are) and then paint it all silver. Paint your symbol on in black, or use silver puff paint to ...

:shock: I would say your too late to do Sessy for Halloween, its a complex costume, so it would take alogn time for you to make, plus as a commissioner, I know no one who could make it for you will have an opening this late. I would say if you want to make it really look like him, you need to work o...

Aw! Don't hate the curls, I love curly hair! Straigthening irons work wonders, for me it works best when I spray a little water on my hair before I iron the section, then I put frizz-ease on it. You can get irons and hair serums at places like Target, drug stores even have an amazing number of hair ...

Cheap wigs tend to be kinda fizzy and tinsel like, not to mention too short as a rule. The only good way of getting a floor length wig is to make or commission one. I have yet to see a wig of good quality from whole sale that was longer than 48" from front to tip. I would say if you are looking for ...

A fast fix for boot with laces would be to buy an extra pair of laces so you can lace the leg portion so it stays open further. Ones with zippers, you can pin a panel of fabric in the gap some times. Keep in mind, either of these things would make them much less supportive of your ankle, so wear the...
