I Dream of the goddess Jeannie by LadyAquanine73551 I Dream of the goddess Jeannie by LadyAquanine73551
"I Dream of Jeannie" is 1 of my fave oldies TV shows :D.

For those of you who might not know what "I Dream of Jeannie" is about, I'll explain. It's a 1960s tv show about an Astronaut named Anthony Nelson (mostly called "Major Nelson" on the show), who in the pilot episode, had his capsule come down too early & landed him on a deserted island in the Pacific. While making a giant SOS message on the beach, he found a pretty purple bottle & noticed it kept moving on its own.
Upon opening the stopper, a cloud of pink smoke came out & a beautiful blond woman in a pink harem costume appeared in front of him. It turned out she was a genie speaking in Persian. She could blink her eyes & making things happen magically. Once Anthony wished she could speak English, he was able to understand her. Major Nelson, being a humble astronaut, simply wished for a helicopter or a boat to get him home, & set Jeannie (as was her name) free. But upon first sight of him, Jeannie fell in love & covertly followed him home in her bottle. It turned out she had been stuck in there for 2,000 years, and wanted to have fun with Major Nelson.

The rest of the show is about the hilarity that ensued after Major Nelson got home with Jeannie :giggle:. Eventually his best friend Major Healy found out about Jeannie & was in on the secret. Unfortunately much of the difficulties Major Nelson AND his best friend had to deal with was hiding Jeannie and her magical antics from normal people, ESPECIALLY Doctor Bellows. Dr. Bellows was the nosy, resident psychiatrist at NASA, & Major Nelson had to make sure that the doctor thought he was sane enough to go up into space, otherwise he'd get thrown from the space program, hence the higher difficulties & need to hide Jeannie and her magic.

I've made 2 other dolls based on this show: [link] [link] already using the Heroine fan-art creator [link]. I fell in luv w/ it when I was 9 & watching Nick At Nite on friday evenings. It's a fun show, even though the special-effects are cheesy-looking nowadays. It's also very kid-friendly :). One reason I love the show is b/c it has 3 things I like a lot: magic, NASA, & comedy :D.

For this re-creation, I used Azalea's Goddess-maker [link]. It was difficult making Jeannie's hair, little hat, & veil, though the rest of her costume was easy by comparison :phew:.

Lucky you :giggle:.  Here in the US, (especially back in the 90s) we often had to channel-flip through at least 40-100 (depending on the package you bought) to find anything interesting.  (Due to living on a budget, my family usually took the basic cable package, which didn't include Disney Channel Sad and often just had like 40-60 channels available).   Usually we'd memorize the channels we liked (those paper TV guides were terribly inaccurate for anyone living outside cities).  Thank God for digital TV Guide! :dance:

Nicely done! Glad to see another fan IDOJ. Did you ever cosplay as anyone from the show? I tried to be Major Healy once, but I looked like a postman lol

I never went to any conventions or made any costumes like what they had on the show. I also never really had the figure to dare Jeannie's outfit (though I would have liked to try ;)).

What I've really wanted to do was imitate a Jeannie doll I saw in the show. 1 time she was trying to covertly help Major Nelson comfort a little girl who had stopped speaking, and she blinked up this cute, 18-inch doll in a Jeannie outfit. I've seen blank, blond dolls just like that at craft stores, & making a little costume for one of that size would be easier than say, a Barbie doll :giggle:. (Guess u can tell I'm an actual girl, lol).

I would also LOVE to have a Jeannie bottle, or even several. I found this wonderful website a few yrs ago where this person makes One Of A Kind Jeannie bottles the same way they made them on the show. They're beautifully made, & each is for what the customer wants, and each has its own color scheme. Problem is, a lot of time & effort goes into these works of art, so they cost a bundle each. Hence why I collected the pictures ;).

I know what you mean about the bottles. They can be VERY pricey but they are so beautifully made, that I'm sure I'll get one in the future.

You shouldn't worry about your figure. If you really want to do a Jeannie cosplay, you should. It's how YOU feel not what some random shmoe thinks about your looks.

Mattel released a limited edition Jeannie style Batbie doll several years back. You might be able to find one but I'm willing to bet they are expensive just like all other Barbie collectibles.

You are very kind about the body-image thing. But the truth is, it's what I want to look like, and right now, I would run away if I saw me in a Jeannie outfit. Forgot about the shoes ;).

Now the doll I speak of would be easier to find & cheaper b/c the materials wouldn't be anything expensive like silk or velvet. Plus I've had a lot of experience sewing & doing crafts, so this would be a fun little project that wouldn't cost anywhere near as much as some fancy Barbie doll by Mattel.

You're welcome:D Actually when I was little one Halloween I kinda dressed up like I dream of Jeannie. I was only like a year old and it was technically a princess onesie with one of those annoying cone things they sometimes give princesses in stories, but I think I looked more like her.:)

Aww, that's cute. The first costume I remember wearing as a kid was Wendy from Disney's Peter Pan :). The closest costume to Jeannie I ever wore was Jasmine from Disney's Aladdin the Halloween after it came out in theaters.

Yeah I was actually never a Disney princess. I realized this only after my family and I were at Disney World for the first time when I was 16 and we were walking around the Enchanted Kingdom and I saw all these little girls running around in princess dresses. I turned to my mom and I go, "Mom I was never a princess. Fix that." She and I then began to discuss which princess I would like to be if I got a dress. I said Belle who was my original favorite, then got kinda replaced by Jasmine(probably because she wore blue the most), but now it's Belle again. She asked about Snow White because I played Snow White in my 8th grade play. I told her all I wanted was a princess dress.:D

You can still be a Disney Princess today. More than once I've seen patterns for sewing adult-sized costumes of Disney's famous heroines. (Many of them were adults, after all). Or, if you don't wanta sew, you can always buy an adult-sized costume online or a Halloween store (though I have my own reserves at how cheap the store-bought costumes look. I like sewing better b/c you have a better chance of making the costume look better & fit you correctly).

I also wasn't always a Disney Princess for Halloween. I've also been; Odette from "Swan Princess," Thumbelina (from the Don Bluth movie), a bride, a karate kid, an astronaut, Anne Boleyn, and a witch.

Yeah I know I can still be one. I want to order a costume, seeing as I cannot sew for the life of me and am there for always extremely impressed by other's abilities.
Let's see for Halloween I was: a princess, a cat, Madeline(you know the little red haired French orphan who lived in a house all covered in vines) I think I was that in pre-K, a 50's girl(you know with the poodle skirt), then I was a witch, then Hermione Granger for two years, an angel, a cowgirl, a gypsy, a pirate, a vampire, Alice in Wonderland, and Green Lantern. I can't remember all of the ones from when I was younger, and I can't remember what I was in 7th grade, and I didn't go trick or treating freshman year of highschool or freshman year of college, but that's mostly what I was. I might have been Madeline for like one or two years. I'd have to ask my mom. She remembers the earlier ones better than I do.
