Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls Challenge

It is time for a NEW challenge at Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls.  For the next two weeks it is a Repo the Genetic Opera vs Rocky Horror Picture Show.   Now, since I have never seen Repo the Genetic Opera, I was going to use the film poster/theme as inspiration.  Then, I started thinking 'fishnet' because of Tim Curry in Rocky Horror Picture Show and next thing I knew I was staring down at THIS.

So- a bit of a funny for you.  As I was working on putting this all together, my youngest son says "Mom, do you know that with those heavy eyebrows it looks kind of like a guy dressed like a girl?"  LOL!  Poor kiddo, he thought I messed up and when I shared that yes I did know and it was intentional he was very confused :)  His exact words were "soooooo,  you meant to have it look like a guy dressed up like a girl?"

I thought the patterned paper looked a bit like creepy old house wallpaper so turning the image into a photo and old blood splatters on the wall just seemed appropriate.

I hope you get the chance to play along with Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls!  I'd love to see where your brain takes you with this challenge.
