This year we performed at an event called Shimmy for the Cure, a breast cancer benefit.  Every year we try to be outrageously funny to help offset some of the heartbreaking stories that get told.  Last year we danced to "Gummy Bear", this year it was to a combination of a parody song "We are Pirates" (to the tune of "We Will Rock You") and Jack Sparrow (PotC).

Just two weeks later is the Zombie walk for hunger, so the costume got a second chance!  Most of the good pictures are from the zombie walk (the professional pics from SftC haven't been posted yet), so I'm leading off with that!

I also put this costume together in two days, which included: covering and decorating the bra, making the vest and bustle, and making the hip wrap.  Hat, jewelry, pants and boots were purchased, and while I made the lace shrug, that was awhile ago for a different costume.

This is me not-zombified, the best pic I could find was with my Little Visitor:

And one of the girls took a B&W photo during the performance:

And one more from the zombie walk, chillin' after the walk...

I love it when costumes get multiple uses!  I also wore it with a skirt I'd previously make (black and red) that happened to match to the RenFest and bellydance class on Halloween.  And I've gotten my entire troupe addicted to bustles.  Cheesy

What a scary lady pirate!
All the details really add up to an amazing costume.
Wish I could have seen the performance.
