Although Halloween isn't a huge event in the UK, the kids were invited to a party and I wanted to make them something different.

If I'd been more organised, I would have bought them blanks to embellish but I ran out of time so I had to make their tops and leggings from scratch too!  Basically, I made three different dillusions of bleach/water and spent two days painting and blow-drying skeletons to get an Xray effect.  I have no work in progress pictures because I was basically off my face on bleach fumes  Wink 

Oh, and just to add to my workload, I did the backs too!
