For any of you that have read Chuck Palahniuk's "Invisible Monsters" may recognize this character- for anyone else, I'm and ex supermodel who shot off her own face. (This is based off the outfit she describes herself weraing to her best friend Evie Cottrell's funeral)
Unfortunately these pictures don't show the back of the dress, or my frozen turkey bag (which you would only understand if you had read the book) but it's all i have at this point.
Everything is hand made by me. The dress and pillbox hat was made out of this fake leathery like material (which was terrible to sew with!), The turkey was and old t-shirt, and the netting i knotted out of yellow yarn. The veil was a few different kinds of mesh. On to the pictures (when i get better ones i will edit this post- but i wanted to make the deadline!):


give me some sugar baby...
love me some personal swaps!

This is one of my favorite books. I LOVE that you added the frozen turkey. I would have followed you around and been your groupie had I seen you on Halloween lol

This is AMAZING. I'm so happy to see something from one of my favorite books and I'm sure everyone who sees your costume will want to read it too. Smiley
