Outfit Celebrating My Favourite Simpsons Episode: El Viaje Misterioso de Neustro Jomer

Dress: leftover denim, vintage buttons, Simplicity 2246 view A with sleeves from view C, fabric paint, glow-in-the-dark paint (the veins on the Insanity Peppers)
Leggings: paisley nylon, McCall's 6173 (don't follow sizes on this pattern, WAY too large- they don't account for stretch or something)
Arm Warmers: bits cut off from leggings to hem them (yes there was that much extra length, fitted, openings finished with zig-zag stitch
Necklace: purple scrap twill pouch and cord, polymer clay chili spoon
Belt: my homemade braided belt
Boots: 'Saloon boots' acquired from overtstock.com a couple years ago

Homer's Chili Spoon

"They say he carved it himself... from a bigger spoon."

Mini-Necklace version: fabric pouch and polymer clay spoon

 Grin That's awesome!  Even without the Simpson's connection/backstory I think it is cool!
