my boyfriend and i decided to go as the "Dead Kennedys" i haven't had a chance to do his suit yet but i finished my part of the costume. The suit was originally a 3 piece suit i bought from a vintage store for 22 bucks. i hated the shirt part so i chopped it up and it became the pillbox hat. the pillbox hat is made from the material and some really stiff interfacing. then i added a spray bottle full of red paint and water and voila. bloody jackie o. now i'm just waiting for brain pieces to dry so i can add them to the hat.

Looks fantastic. I've always loved House of Yes and Parker Posey's line about the "macaroni brains" she used in her costume. Heh heh. I'd love to do this costume but know some peeps get awfully touchy so I wuss out. Props to you!

Totally tasteless, totally awesome. 

Remember to do your hair - yours is much longer than hers was.  I read your title and thought you were going out as the band the Dead Kennedys; guess that's an Old Person reference now!
