I made this costume for a burlesque number where i am a wind up doll. I don't have a good pic of me on the box though!

close to the end:


if you look really hard you can see the metal bow on my butt. its my favorite part of the whole costume:





Crafty work from the head down-

I added clock parts and beads to the wig.

Sewed the collar, skirt and cage skirt
embellished the shirt to add black shoulder things, black buttons, etc.
took apart a waist cinch and created a new one from it.
created arm warmers (didn't get a picture with both! each was different)
made thigh highs from tights
made the clock work by adding standard parts and hands.

This was my favorite costume I've made yet.  Cheesy

Wow. That's so cool! I love the bow, but I think the clock on the front is my favorite!

Nice work on the costume. I think the bow(wind up key) is my favorite part. The over all costume is awesome.
