This post is for Bells

Who wanted to know what Dead Muppet Fur Project of Shame we had hiding in our cupboards.




This here was made for Chicken, back when she was seven or eight--it was supposed to be a shaggy, Chanel cut coat with a big yellow ribbon, to be made for svelte models with sunglasses. The pattern is (everybody scream) Vogue Knitting, and it was about the time I realized that I'd never fit into anything they made, but the models were very pretty. Chicken wore it over her Easter Dress (back before we were pagans, I guess) and loathed it immediately after--but for a little girl, DMFPoS was definitely glam. The good news is, that this was at least six years back. The bad news is, we can't even ship it out to a landfill--it probably has a half life of at least six-thousand years.

Yeah, but what a great Halloween costume it'll make! Love the DMFCOS!

I think I recognize that Muppet. Maybe I saw it on The Muppet Show when Alice Cooper was the guest...
