This homemade costume for women entered our 2015 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Erica, the 'Lady T'luluh Poulpe' costume creator:

In this costume is me. Lady T'luluh Poulpé has been a character almost 3 years in the making. T'luluh is a variation on Cthulhu, and Poulpé is French for "octopus." She does have her sidekick, Carlow McKcraic'n, her Irish Octopus she adopted from the Amazon.
*McKcraic'n is the fun, Irish side of the Kracken

Between gifts from family of jewelry and goggles, I have slowly pieced together her outfitting through thrift store finds and good deals online. I knew she needed dreadlocks so it would resemble tentacles.

The bustle (maybe my favorite part) is actually a thrift store ruffled top with spaghetti strap ties. I add a tutu inside the shirt, and then take the spaghetti strap ties, and tie it around my waist to keep the the newly-transformed bustle around my waist.

I also pulled out my petticoat slip, I used with my wedding dress, to give my skirt a beautiful, filled-out look.

With our Kansas City Royals playing in the World Series, I had to take a cue from KayCee - The W Guy and use my Victorian-inspired attire to root on our team. So I chose blue for this particular ensemble. It included a hand-me-down blouse, and even a repurposed pair of royal blue gauchos. The top hat is powder blue, and I stacked lace, pearl, and metal-like headbands up the shaft, then topped it with a lace tiara. I added a couple of peacock feathers that are hair clips for some extra adornment, then took stick glue to attach a "KC" patch for some extra team spirit. My goggles are resting atop the rim of the hat, then I placed a dollar store pair of gold glitter crown sunglasses, that are quite goggle-like in shape & size.

A hiraeth is someone who is homesick for somewhere they can never go or can never return to. She is based out of the skyways of the steampunk aether. So - hiraether.

So Lady T'luluh Poulpé is a hiraether from Possum Trot, just rooting on her KayCees with her octopus, Carlow McKcraic'n, for the game on Halloween.
