Mr. Macabre's Costume is just about finished!

Each year I spend a whole lot of time on props but forget about little ol' me until the last second.  Not this year, I have just about finished my Mr. Macabre outfit and I'm really pleased with it.  All I have left is a cummerbund and I'm done...

The Shirt (100% cotton sateen batiste with tiny bronze skull buttons; feels sooooooo good on, I'm a sucker for nice fabric)
My Cane and Cameo (made out of glow in the dark polymer clay.  For those who work with polymer clay, I bow at your feet in reverence...this stuff was a $($*&**~!! to work with!)

My little glowing cameo (looks better in the dark)
My top hat with MASCULINE undertaker's black satin bow and ribbons.
Side view

The Coachman's Coat, got a great deal on the wool on teh interwebs! 


Back view, I lengthened the cape and the bottom hem about 3 inches for that menacing goth til you drop look.

Sleeve 'buttons'.  Actually they're skull guitar strap studs but that will be our little secret.  It's hard to find nice large gothic skull buttons!

The front of the coat is still kind of meh, I might have to buy more skull studs.  Found a pair of tux pants on the Ebays and I'm almost ready to go!
