My Chemical Romance is releasing a new album set in a sort of dystopian world, and they asked fans to come up with Halloween costumes that fit that world. I'm loving their new look, which is one reason I jumped at the chance, but even MORE important than the primary colors and rayguns is the fact that Becky Cloonan, my very favorite comic artist, will be drawing the comic of the same name and universe (releasing in 2011! new year, come quick!).

Here's my take:


I bought a cheap jacket at Nordstrom Rack--faux leather, but it looks and feels pretty realistic. I'd had my eye on a red jacket at a local vintage shop, but it was sold by the time I went back to the store. The red boots are leftover from a punk costume I did years ago, and the guns and glasses started their lives as Nerf equipment. I chopped the fingertips and wrist part off the gloves. Then came the spraypaint. I masked everything out with (one and a half rolls of) painter's tape and newspaper.


Here you can see the back of the jacket, which I like a lot more than the front.



And a close up of my various accessories. The zine cover is made of fused plastic bags, the water bottle is one of those cool aluminum Coke bottles.



I had a lot of fun making and wearing this--primary colors FTW!

LOVE this!! I can't wait for the new album. Watched the video as soon as it was posted on Facebook. I also thought about doing the costume contest, but I was doing a zombie walk, and had to get a costume done for that. The costume looks great!! You did an excellent job!!
