My Day of the Dead costume was created for Dragon Con in 2011. I needed a Dia De Los Muertos costume that would look good on me so I took my costume staple, steelboned corset!, and painted a ribcage, sacred heart, and spider webs on it. Then I made a huge tulle skirt, I like to make an entrance :), and put a lace skirt over it with two skeleton hands holding it up. A creepy yet sexy costume!
Just the Facts-
The black satin overbust steelboned corset has a 17" front metal busk. It has a hand painted rib cage that goes to the back then the laces are white to make it look like the spine ( a nice creepy costume touch). On the right side is 3 roses handpainted with red, white, and purple paint then has mini skulls attached to the middle of 4 of them cause whats a Day of the Dead costume without roses. On the left side is a sacred heart made out of glitter. At the bottom of the corset are spider webs and swirly purple patterns.
The black lace skirt, lace design may vary depending on whats available, is 7" long where it meets the two skeleton hands. The skeleton hands are 4" long and are wrapped to hold the skirt ruched. The rest of the skirt is 20" long at the scalloped edges but can be made at any length. There are 5 handpainted roses around the bottom edges. It has an elastic waistband.
The hand cut tulle skirt is 27" long but can be made to any length. The colors are red, purple, and a shimmery white. This skirt is soooo much fun!!! I felt like I was in a scary wedding dress!!!
Accessories included are lace fingerless elbow length gloves and two handpainted roses with mini skulls hair clips so this really is a complete Day of The Dead costume!
