Awesome Applique Dresses

November 28th, 2008 by Cobwebs

Scapular DressEtsy seller Toolgrrl specializes in amazingly detailed appliqued dresses, many of them featuring internal anatomy. The one shown here is Scapular.

Her works tend toward the surreal and creepy, such as her Blood Countess dress, based on the story of Elizabeth Bathory and featuring countless gloves which represent the skin of her victims.

The dresses–as are to be expected–aren’t cheap, but they’re gorgeous and are a marvelous source of inspiration. She also offers other items, such as appliqued T-shirts that are much less expensive.

Pretty stuff!
