For this year’s Edward Gorey Ball, I wasn’t sure if I could ever make a costume that would even be in the same league as last year when I became Winnie Embedded In Ice. But, my sweetie and I were determined to see if we could try, and I think the power of this costume comes from the fact that we did it as a matching pair.
Remember Ed Gorey ’s The Disrespectful Summons ? Well, I decided to become Miss Squill, as she was being dragged down to hell. For this I knew that I needed to make my skirt going up in flames, and what better way than to hand paint some flames….
Insert some flickering electric tea lights….
Attach it to a hand-made Victorian skirt, and voila!
