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.
