You're done!

Put on the crinoline and a white tank top and go show off your incredible costume!
Add some fake blood dripping down the front of the skirt and a veil in your hair to finish off the look.

Your real arms are usually hidden from view under the top skirt, but you still have easy access to drinks whenever you want to break the illusion.

The duct tape torso is so light you should have no trouble dancing the night away or doing whatever else you'd like. I even took my costume bowling!

If, like me, you're 6'2" in heels, this costume will make you monstrously tall. I found that group photos worked best when I was on my knees, so wearing a pair of knee pads might be a good idea.

This is awesome! I assume you can't wear it in the car and have to take it off each time you travel to a different destination.
would it be possible to show how the bamboo sticks are placed? Thanks-fab costume

I followed your How-To and made this costume for Halloween this year.  I had to make some changes, since my dress was strapless, but overall it looked really fantastic and was a huge hit!!  Thanks for posting the instructions!!
