In a last ditch effort to get dressed up this year I decided to go with a mix of kitsch and gore. The 1980's punk rock prom-queen zombie seemed just right. I found the dress at a Goodwill and it fit near perfectly, I did a few alterations here and there to finish it up. I took in the sides and added an underskirt that was full of tafetta to give the outer skirt some more bounce to it. I also used tons of spider webbing, "spooky" netting, and more tafetta on the outside. My favorite part was the shaw I constructed to hide my tattoos while at the office. I covered it in tons of dirt and various paint colors to give it the "just out of the grave" look. I then hot glued neon colored bugs, worms, and reptiles all over it. The finishing touches were torn up fishnets, pink socks, my chucks, and a ton of jewelry.

I also made the earrings that I'm wearing.


I'm rocking the "Braaainnns" face.

A close up so you can see the earrings.

Enjoy, I know I did!
