Topic Generator: Obedient Dress

Shop Window, Halloween Dress, Rochester

“So get ready, you are the chosen dress this evening.”

“But you wore me last week, let’s give it a rest.”

“Does not come into the question. Drippy Mode made you especially for me. Why she even wove some spider threads into the seam and those buttons are genuine ground snail shells from the dark island.”

“I know, and it looks very good, but those snail shells keep moving. First of all they are in neat rows and suddenly they do a figure of eight. And as for the necklace?”

“What’s wrong with the necklace?”

“Drippy could have killed the spider before she coated it in fool’s gold. It is constantly moving around my neck.”

“Tonight I want to look especially good. I have a date with the Grim Reaper.”

“Oh, not him again.”

“What’s wrong with him, he protects me from all sorts of evil shapes.”

“Of course, he is one evil shape himself, and he smells.”

“Listen dress, if you stay in the coffin all the time, you will  begin to smell as well. It does us both good to move amongst people.”

“What people, they are all undead.”

“And so am I, but I want to be the best dressed at the party. The Grim reaper has a few new friends from the graveyard and he wants to make a good impression. After all you cannot just collect from the living and not look after them afterwards when they are dead. Grimmy wants to make an imression and with me at his side dressed in my exclusive Drippy Mode dress, we will be the hit of the evening.”

“Ok, I will dress you, but be careful with the zip.”

“Why, I never had a problem up to now.”

“I know, but Morticia Drac borrowed me a few days ago and she isn’t fussy about zips. She just pulls them up, disregarding the blood splashes. It makes the zip so sticky and difficult to fasten. “

“I think I will have to have a word with Morticia. She has her own clothes to wear.”

“That is what I told her when she took me, but she said it was only fair as you had borrowed her werewolf fur for your wrap last week and since then it does not wind itself so tight around her neck.”

“Of course not, I had to stretch it, it nearly strangled me. So come here, I want to wear you.”

“In spite of the blood stains on the zip?”

“Because of the blood stains on the zip, Grimmy loves bloodstains.”


  1. For some reason I was reminded of that old song; "It's my party and I'll die if I want to......die if I want to........." LOL.

  2. I was in England when I took the photo. We were on an excusion to Rochester in Kent and I saw the dress in a shop window, so took the photo. It was early evening, hence the poor quality.
