The Wizard of Oz: The Magic Spell of Hell Bunnys Poppy 50s Skirt



For optimal viewing gratification please click and enjoy this wicked  themed video while perusing my post.

 

 







The Wizard of Oz was one of my favorite movies as a child. It might even be the movie that started my love of everything dark and villainous in this world. While most girls my age were praying Dorthy make it home safe. I just wanted more of the evil green faced witch and her uber creepy slave monkeys. When putting this look together I kept going back to the scene I have posted above. I wanted to incorporate the yellow brick road, wicked witch, monkeys and of course poppies. I needed everything from this stand out scene to tie together my outfit.
A few months ago I discovered Hell Bunny released a poppy skirt and dress. While the dress is super cute it really wasn't going to work for the look I had in mind. I knew I wanted to make the skirt the center piece and work the darkness around it. These poppies really were the perfect excuse to finally buy my first HB skirt. I picked the skirt up at Sweet Echo Plus. Sweet Echo is my go to shop for Hell Bunny. I order a size 4X. I was a little afraid it would not fit. There is no elastic in a Hell Bunny skirt and their size chart only goes up to a 46" waist. My low waist is 50". If I had to wear this skirt on my low waist it would not fit. It works fine for the high waist look I was going for. I actually can only see myself wearing these skirts high waited. I find it to be a good length high waist. If I wore it down lower it would be longer in my legs then I like.
The bright yellow tights I got from My Tights. I was totally trying to find a pair of tights there were more reasonably priced than We Love Colors. I'll admit I was being cheap. WLC ends up costing me $30 for one pair after shipping and I only wanted a pair of yellow. I found My Tights was much cheaper. These were $9 for the tights and only $5 shipping to Canada. That being said the tights took four weeks too arrive. They also are much too short to fit me properly. I'm 5'6" and the only way I could keep them up was to wear Spanx over top. Spanx under a full skirt suck! If you are under 5'6" I would totally recommend that you check these out. You can't beat the price. The tights were good quality and the color was very vibrant. I'm wearing the UK 28/30 for reference.
For a skirt I wanted the classic black and white side shot of the wicked witch. I had a hard time finding exactly what I wanted so I created the shirt I wanted in RedBubble.
Redbubble is fantastic if you have a vision and can't find what you are looking for. This happens to me a lot. I just have to go ahead and make the stuff I visualize. My shirt was ordered in size XL. It is very snug, but I wanted it very fitted. 
My creepy monkey minions also were custom made. I made a pin and a matching ring. I kind of wish I had made more. Lots and lots of creepy moneys. Can one ever have too many? 
Lastly my shoes came from ASOS. I fell head over heels in love with them. They were so wicked and witchy and made me think of this seasons American Horror Story Coven. I would like to think that The Supreme and the Wicked Witch of the West would have been best buds. Ya know if she hadn't been melted.


Please leave me a comment below and let me know what you thought of today's look. I love getting feedback and answering questions. If there are any items you would like to see me blog about or review let me know. 

Thanks for the creep,
