Doom Buggy & Mama + Haunted Mansion Wreath 2016

Last year on my Blog I did a post about a Doom "Bugy" with my Haunted Mansion License Plate and Doorbell.  With the Disney Haunted Mansion in mind.  See it here.

This year as promised I have added upon this theme.  I have made a Mama Skeleton to push the buggy.   Plus one other skeleton, that is kind of a flirt sitting on a park bench. 
This scene is part of my outdoor decor.  Unfortunately I got very few photos outside.  The wind has been blowing for 3 solid days and I couldn't compete with the wind blowing everything about.   So... I moved everything inside until the wind calms down.

I have also decided to show my "The Nightmare Before Christmas countdown wreath".  This is my version of the one hung on the top porch in Disneyland every year at the Haunted Mansion.  

I had also been working on a Hearse with a Ghost Horse pulling it along, or maybe flying along.  You know Jack Skellington delivers presents in a coffin sled.  See it here.

Mama is carrying her little handbag from Kirk's Folly.

       She has such beautiful Spider Web eyelashes, don't you think?

          Wearing her self portrait cameo.  Made especially for her.

I made the cane from a piece of bamboo sprayed black and used a dollar store skull for the handle.

                                  Every vehicle has to be licensed

The skirts are a hoop skirt from IKEA children's costume area.  Not only does it look like bones but gives a Victorian detail.  It came in a cream color.  I randomly sprayed it with black paint for a grayed look.  Over that is a layered tulle, net, and organza skirt.  Short in the front and long in the back.  The back has a built in Bustle.

             A black velvet jacket with satin lacing down the back.

I added some jeweled lace trim on the shoulder with of course a spider for a little dress-up trim.

A black lace parasol helps complete the look of a Victorian lady.

Lace up boots with lovely lace trim that matches the lovely lady's blouse.

                       Don't let the Zombie flamingo crash the show!

                                        A little blush on the cheeks!

Thank you for visiting today.  Please leave a comment, they are much appreciated.
