MADE BY ME:
-Dorothy dress in red & black gingham with black stretch lace (extreme pain to work with, if you are unawares), red ricrac accents, four metal skull buttons. Slightly altered Simplicity 4136.
-Skeletoto
-Witch legs

ALTERED BY ME:
-basket painted black (actually by my friend)
-store bought nylons ripped up by me (fraycheck & seam picker)

NOT MADE BY ME
-wig (added the bows, though)
-shoes


---
"WHAT'S THAT, SKELETOTO?":


"OH MY!":


"WHY WASTE A GOOD PAIR OF SHOES?":


---


SKELETOTO: craft velour, stuffing, wire (he's posable/bendy), thread, fabric paint

---


Skull button(s) on red and black gingham (the check print is kind of lost in the photos)

---


Torn hem on extremely full/gathered skirt

---


Wouldn't be complete without the pasty make-up and 'Tim Burton' eye (aka death dark circles), would it?

Thanks, all!  Grin

And those shoes are to die for!

I actually just got them off amazon. I almost went for a tamer ruby red slipper, since I next to never wear heals, but they were just too darn irresistible (with the satin bow) and I didn't even hurt myself in them!

I so want a SKELETOTO of my own! he's so cute!!!!!!

I had planned on making a tutorial for you all, but it was so much fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants trial and error (probably 3 or more mock-ups of his head alone-which still didn't come out quite like I wanted it, but has grown on me) that I don't think I even have a clue what I did at this point! And I think in the mayhem that was cleaning the apartment for the Halloween party, the pattern may have been tossed in the recyclables. Maybe I can track it down... Sorry Undecided

This looks great!  I might have to make a regular "allowed to wear at work" dress inspired by your dress!
