This is an embroidery I have been wanting to do for some time now, and when I received my glow in the dark thread from SS, I knew I had to use it on my Zombie Hello Kitty! I also traced the design onto stabilizer that was ironed onto black fabric. I used the glow in the dark thread for the spider webs, and I also used it to wrap around the stem stitch I used for Hello Kitty's head, eyes, nose, arms, and legs, and her wound stitches.  The glow in the dark thread is extremely hard to work with, and suggest using it like the way I did with her body and not the spider webs- that way your only wrapping your other stitches, and not using it to do the stitching.
This design was an original design from my brother Ronnie at Flesh Gear @ Chicago. It was already a tattoo, but I turned it into an embroidery design with permission from Ronnie of coarse:-) You can see the original tattoo here

This is for a swap- for a lover of all things zombie  AND hello kitty :-)

Thanks for looking and any questions and comments are welcome!

what a fabulous combo! And wonderfully done.
Thanks for the glow-in-the-dark thread tip. I have been thinking about trying some for a (oddly enough) zombie piece for a pillow for my son.

This is awesome!! You did a great job. I love everything HK, but sometimes she's too cutesy, this is the perfect combo. I would love this on a bag.

Completely Awesome! 

I first became afraid of Hello Kitty in the late 70's, when my little sister became obsessed with it! This is how I've always wanted to see that freaky little cat!

Although if I saw it glowing in the dark I might lose it!  Cheesy
