(this is Lexie's version of a dressed for success skeleton)
What I'm about to say will solidify your feelings about me being a dork...
I crack myself up! I really do.
I was sitting in my house yesterday afternoon looking at the skeleton my girls had dressed two times previously, when I had this brilliant idea! After rummaging through the Halloween crap like a kid wound up on too much candy, I found what I was looking for. Then, after careful consideration, (not really) I dressed my skeleton up in it. I stood back to admire my work. Not quite as funny as I had hoped, but still pretty good. After a trip to Walleyworld, I got the finishing touch. What do you think?
without the finishing touches:
After the finishing touches
Looks a wee li-le bit like one of Captain Barbosa's crew. Don't you think? I wish you could see the way the light shines through the costume. It's pretty eerie!
