Well, there's always soooo many entries to this challenge I almost didn't bother entering my outfit, buuuuut sod it here it is anyways Smiley  We didn't end up with a very big turn out to our Halloween party (unfortunately Halloween isn't big in the UK Sad) so I figured since it took me freakin ages to make the wig I could at least show it off here Wink

Um, so basically I'm like a scary dead killing doll thing Smiley  Here's the full length shot (please ignore the flip flops, doesn't really go with the costume, but since I was at home.....)

- Wig made from 3 balls of massive chunky wool plus another ball of dk wool
- Tutu underskirt made from about a gazillion metres of many different colours of net including silver, red, burgundy, flourescent red, black.... 
- Apron made from white cotton with giant buttons and of course coated in bloody handprints and smears (though admittedly I realise now I should have put much more blood on it!)
- Skirt made from the most perfect black fabric with scary skulls with sparkly red eyes on!  Seriously like my favourite skirt now, I can't tell you how many times I've worn it since our Halloween party (which was actually the wk before Halloween)
- Top from my wardrobe Smiley

I made the wig using super massive chunky wool on a crochetted hat (instructions here).  In progress wig being modelled by one of my Uglydolls - Jeero Smiley

And finished wig.  I tied up the ponytails and attached a little skull to each which I had sprayed with black and silver spraypaint.

Awesome skirt fabric... the eyes are much more sparkly in real life Smiley

And final reminder shot (please try to ignore the multiple chins! Shocked)

Oh and the topic subject is a reference to Rob Zombie of course, and not Cliff Richard Grin

Really great. I love it. Totally something I'd wear for hallowe'en. (Or, you know, to the mall.)

*insert witty saying here*

The way you made the wig is sooooooo clever! Neat idea really. I like this costume, I thought of making my daughter as one for next year.
