I am very pleased with the dyeing effect. That's two-tone ombre dyeing (which I've never done before) in pale blue and royal blue, followed by spraying with purple spray-on dye. The fabric is calico and cheesecloth.

Top tip - don't put cheesecloth in the washing machine if you value your sanity. Also don't ask me how I learned this.

Still to make: Lamp, hourglass, belt, gigantic ridiculous pauldron with spikes with skulls stuck on them, gloves with bone fingers. Then it's done. I have two months.

Eek!

Death gets around. Certainly enough to view many choices...

Glad Death has decided to vary his (her?) color scheme a bit. The black was getting so commonplace.
