Will the real Cherry Darling please stand up?

Amputee model Lacey Henderson dressed up as Cherry Darling from Robert Rodriguez' film Planet TerrorI'm a big fan of Robert Rodriguez' film "Planet Terror". So while trolling the internet for interesting Halloween-themed items to post, I was drawn to these images of model Lacey Henderson dressed up as Rose McGowan's character "Cherry Darling". In the film they used special effects to remove McGowan's leg and replace it with a machine gun. Lacey, however, is an actual amputee (and uber foxy model) that was hired to dress up like this to promote the film's dvd release.

**Fast forward to 2:05 to see footage of Lacey/Cherry in action.

If you would like to create a similar costume for yourself, check out this site. It gives instructions on how non-amputees can build a very realistic version of the costume. They also have an excellent collection of photos of women (both amputees and non-amputees) wearing the versions of the costume that they built.

(And here's an interesting side note... I also discovered a Hollywood casting site brokering exclusively in amputees.)

I'm such a huge fan of Planet Terror and I really love that very sexy Cherry lookalike.

By the way, I love the blog and it's totally getting me excited for next month.

Just found a really funny "What Not to Wear for Halloween 2009" blog post and I thought you might be interested.

Thanks and keep up the good work,
