Item Review: Hell Bunny Calaveras Dress

Some pinup girls just aren’t into sweet and pretty prints.  So what’s a girl to do?

Hell Bunny has recently come out with a great Day of the Dead print that errs on the side of tough, not sweet.  Featuring sugar skulls, roses and crosses on a black background, this dress allows for co-ordination with blue, pink, yellow, black, green or white accessories.

The halter neck is surprisingly comfortable , with buttons to allow for the length of the halter neck to be altered.  I usually find halter necks pull on my neck, but I have had no trouble with this dress.

Two small front pockets are a nice detail, being both functional (big enough to fit my smart phone or a mirror and lipstick) and decorative.

The back of this dress is ruched with elastic for a comfortable stretch and fit.  It also means you can size down from your usual Hell Bunny size.  A zip up the back allows you to step into the dress, and I was able to do and undo the zip on my own.

The 50s style full skirt fit a two-layered petticoat underneath without any drama, enhancing the silhouette of the dress.

I’m wearing a size Large.  The Calaveras dress is available in sizes XS to 4XL.

I purchased mine from Atomic Beauty in Rockhampton, Queensland for AU$75.

In these photos, I paired my dress with a belt and scarf from Pretty in Pinup, purse from Ms Katt’s Kustom House, necklace and petticoat from Your One Stop Pinup Shop, cardigan by MAK,  bangles by Splendette and shoes from Rivers.
