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?

LOVE THIS! Love all the little details... So awesome.  Makes me want to take something normal and turn it goth-y for next year's costume!
