october 2020 - emily from corpse bride

i love halloween so much! this outfit was by far my most ambitious. i made the skirt and headdress from a net curtain i found in a charity shop. i dyed the ends blue and dirtied them with acrylic paint. i lined the skirt with an old sheet. it was a wraparound skirt so i used spare buttons for the fastening of it.

for the top, i bought a high neck lacy top from a charity shop and adjusted the neckline to match emily's dress. the stitching did this horrible thing where it sort of leant outwards so i had to redo it a couple times. i also dyed various parts blue with the same method as the skirt/headdress. for the ribs, i ripped the lace and painted onto the fabric beneath.

sadly i dont have many pictures of the whole fit, in fact the only fullbody one is this one of me in tesco
