A word from Jason, the 'Dead Bride Carrying Dead Groom' costume creator:
I got the idea from a youtube video I had seen it on line.it was of a guy carrying a guy in a box so I decided to take it a step further and funnier and be more creative with a dead bride and groom it took me a few weeks to figure out how to put it together was not very easy at first but I finally figured out how to make it and what I needed the wedding dress is an actual wedding dress and the suit Im wearing is also a real dinner jacket and slacks and also the shoes all this I bought at the good will store the only thing Halloween store bought is the mask for bride and the brides hands the and wig and the makeup I am wearing.
What I used:
- cardbord box
- duck tape
- lots of news papers
- wire hangers
- saftey pins
- five curtain rods
- velcro strips
- cable ties
- shoe box
- mask / wig / two fake hands
- wedding dress / vail / white heals or shoes / mask /white pants
- white buttoned down dress shirt / tuxedo or dinner jacket / black slacks / black dress shoes / hat / tie / halloween makup for face
First I made a hole at the bottom of the box in the back end just enough for my waste to fit where my legs will be sticking out witch will look like the bride is carrying me but it's really me walking but made it look like I was really in a box and was being carried.
For the brides upper body I had to use three long curtain rods and put them at the back end of the box where I made the hole where my waste would be I then cable tied the 3 curtain rods to the cardboard box.
I then got a small shoe box duck taped that to the curtain rods this is where the brides upper body will be then got the wedding dress had to cut the bottom end of the dress so that the top of the dress would fit through the curtain rods and the shoe box so once I got the wedding dress was on there I got some wire hangers for her arms ducked taped that to the curtain rods and the shoe box.
The wedding dress I had to cut it down the middle the bottom half so that i can put the upper part of the dress through the shoe box and curtain rods and wire hangers and also would be easier for me to get in and out of the dress but put velcro so would be able to make it look like I didn't have to cut I also was wearing white pants and white heels.
It then looked like it had a body with arms I then got some news paper stuffed the arms and filled out the body where the shoe box was I got some fake costume hands that I bought at the store I got the hands and also cable tied them to the cardboard box.
I then got a styrofoam head witch was the brides head a and stuck that trough one of the curtain rods after all that was done I put halloween mask on the bride along with a wig I used pins for this part that way the wig wont fall off an last but not least put the vail on also used pins for the vail also after all that I zipped up the back of the dress and was done with that part of the costume.
For the groom part I had got some dress shoes got two curtain rods made a hole in the back of the shoes and cable tied the curtain rods to the back of the shoes then got some news papers put it around the curtain rods duck taped all that.
After that I got some black slacks put the legs through the slacks and by this time it looks like real legs I then got the two legs cut two small holes in the back of the pants got some cable ties and tied it to the cardboard box this really took me a lot of brain storming and thinking on how to make it but was all worth it for me to my family and friends love the costume.
