the theme of this ensemble is la catrina, the other manifestation of mictlancacihuatl...who is famous as a symbol of the day of the dead. i wore a version of this outfit for my dia de los muertos party, but i unearthed it again after getting a fabulous skin from munchflower zaius of nomine. it was an unexpected gift, and i literally wanted (and still want to) thank her every day because it is an amazingly detailed beautiful skin, with a sugar skull face.

i love this dress anyway--there is something so off-kilter but beautiful about it, and i love how it exposes one side of the body. originally i wore a custom version of nomine's burnt bones skin, and the "to live and die" tattoo set, so the visible parts had visible bones. but with this new skin, i wore the "mayan dream" tattoos by garden of ku, because the placement of those tats is very complimentary to the gown. and that hat--it amazes me how it goes so well with the gown.

OMG hilarious--it's a look that goes from streetwalker to amateur sniper, too.
