Puttin on the Costumes!!!

Hey there all! Welcome to the Ghoulishly divine Bombshell new release Blog Hop. YES! Isn't it wonderful??? All new eerie costumes for our favorite ladies. You should have arrived here from the Bombshell Blog. If you didn't - well LUCKY YOU - I am the first on the hop... HEE HEE. Well lets start this off with my first devilish creation - The Bombshell Bride of Frankenstein.

I followed the September Bombshell sketch and I colored her up with Warm Greys (W00, 1, 3, 4) and then went over it with a bit of YG0000 to give her a little green glow. Her couiffure is colored up with Cool greys starting with C0, and working up to C7. I then went over it with W00 to make it a little toned down and more matching her skin color. Her blush is V91.   Her dress was colored with V91, 93, 95, 99. I love this color set.

The paper is Basic Grey!!! I cut the Sentiment out, and used the W00, W1 and YG0000 to make it more closely match the paper colors.

I cannot look at this image without thinking of "Young Frankenstein" and Madeline Khan!!! I adore her! "Sweet Mystery of Life at last I Found You!"  :-) And that leads me to the "Puttin on the Ritz" song from that movie and my next card to share with you! I now present Bombshell Angel Puttin on the Glitz!

Isn't this costume just Fantabulous!!!! What I love love love about this, is it isn't just a Halloween costume moment. It can be used for so many different things.

I colored her up with Cool Greys (from C1 through C9) and the reds are R22, 24, 27, 29 and 39. Her skin is E000, 00, 11 (for the hose I added a bit of C3 over her colored legs) and her hair is E23, 25, 27, 29. I added a TOUCH of BV00 and BV01 to her eyes for a little shadow. After I had her colored up and cut out, I added glossy elements to her boots, hat and her sleeves. You can see the reflection of the white on her sleeves in the close up below. For a final touch I made these rolled flowers from a die cut I had and then added some BLING to her.

Now that I have totally shown off these two ladies, you should continue along on the hop and check out the next set of beauties. Halloween is many of the Bombshell's favorite holiday... and we are SOOOOo excited to show these off.  Next on your journey is ALISON who ADORES Halloween, and has a WICKED sense of style! Thank you for stopping by, and I hope to see you again soon!
