Title: Little Gross Creep hath slain her sheep & now they merrily haunt her!

WARNING: If you belong to PETSA (People for the ethical treatment of stuffed animals) then you should be aware that this post has graphic depictions of dead stuffed animals. Although actual plushie blood was used for effect, and no stuffed animals were actually harmed, these animals are not free and may be depicted in ways that might bring them shame if these photos were to surface in their hometowns.

Everyone thought my daughter was Bo Peep when she wore the hoop dress and hat. Fourth grade is the wrong time of life to be a nursery character....so we hit the thrift store!



The BAAAA-dy bag.....spilling his guts....Sick Filet Cow in sheep's clothing

This was the actual trick or treat bag, with zipper to put treats in and get them out..made from a Disney sheep costume, a stuffed cow, fleece thread glue and marker



SHANKenstein- raised as a Baaaptist, appearing in Easter and Christmas plays, Shanken sheepie has lately begun to experiment with Baaaa-dy modification and enjoys picking up random screws.

Shank was pulled along on his doll pram by a dog leash, decked out with vintage erector set pieces, baling wire, random screws and a battery operated strobe light/thunder sound system



Vampire Baaaat-

Made from altered dog toy donkey with seed bead teef and plushie blood, rubber backed mat wings with vintage lace overlay



Plushie fleece blood-what did you think stuffed animal blood felt like? Thread and yarn blood drips. Sequins and spangles are wet blood.



vampire baaat wings



anatomy of a zaaaaambie.....plushie guts made from drapery tie backs



Hope you enjoy our little grossery rhyme...and she lived horrorbly eternally after!

This is really creative! Amazing idea and amazing execution!
My favourite part is the felt blood on the dress and hat =) (the dress itself is lovely!)

So let me get this straight... you wanted to make her a Little Bo Peep costume and she decided she wanted to creep it up a little? *giggle*

How did they not know she was Scarlett O'Hara? :)  Both the original costume and this remaking are wonderful!

I had to vote for this. Anyone can make a brilliantly ghoulish mass-murdering Bo Peep costume, perhaps even accessorize it with a disemboweled sheep as a trick-or-treat bag, but the Frankenstein dog (er - it was a dog, wasn't it?) on wheels raised it to a whole other plane of wonder. And the neck-biting sheep-bat was really just the icing on the gore-encrusted cake.

You and your daughter are my kind of people! I'm sorry you didn't win, because you totally deserved to, and I hope you do something even more scandalously brilliant next Hallowe'en and share it here too.

Oops! I just realized the disemboweled sheep is actually a murderous cow wearing a flayed and disemboweled sheep, la Buffalo Bill. Okay, my admiration has just gone up another 200%.

I am absolutely in love with this the uniqueness of it amazes me. I also thought it was Mrs. O'hara when I saw it
