Carnival Lady

My inspirations for this lady were carnivals and the 18 century fashion for panniers.  She is probably the only one of my lineup to not be in some way connected to Halloween, but I loved her silhouette and didn't want to do too much to hide it, so I decided to give her the skeletal frame of a costume.  I've always wanted to make a wire underskirt and this seemed a good time to try.  I now think of her as some sort of Mardi Gras and Day of the Dead amalgamation, with a little bit of Lady Gaga and Jessie J thrown in too.
