This homemade costume for women entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Betty, the 'Half Skeleton Bride' costume creator:

Hello everybody!
My name is Betty and these are just photos of me in my Skeleton Halloween costume/makeup.
It's definitely not perfect - but I definitely had fun with it :) !
I originally wanted to be "Corpse Bride''- I even bought a super long blue wig (from Sammydress.com) online! Except after trying on the wig I realized it would probably be annoying to wear it out the whole night since it was so heavy .

Since I bought the white lace backless dress already, I still wanted to be a bride! I wanted to go for something "spooky'' yet still "pretty," so I thought why not do half skeleton/half normal bride!
Anyway, here is how I put together my costume:

White Lacy Dress:

Wedding Veil:
$5.08 (plus shipping/tax)

Black / White Facepaint:
$4.45 each

Flower Halo:
> to make my flower halo, I bought a role of Pastel Purple tulle from Ebay (around $12 including shipping!)
> cut a long piece of the tulle and wrapped it around/glue gunned it to a headband.
>I made them with real roses that I bought at the grocery store ---> altogether $25 + tax (they were on sale too!)
>I wanted the skeleton side to be dark/bloody looking, so I just glue gunned & pinned them to the veil then dipped the roses/flowers in black acrylic paint
> the normal bride side: I just pinned/glue gunned bright coloured roses/flowers to the headband

Hair combs:
$6 in a pack of 2 (from Zellers)
- I glue gunned them to the wedding veil, just so it would stay in my hair

Black jewel necklace:
$28 Icing by Claires :)
- there was a normal diamond looking one, except I was going for more of a "dark/glamorous" type of bride!

I hope you guys like it :) !
