Tim Burton's Corpse Bride Costume

Tim Burton's Corpse Bride

Costume type:  Costumes for Women
Categories:Halloween Costumes, Movie and TV Show Costumes

This homemade costume for women entered our 2014 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Brenna, the 'Tim Burton's Corpse Bride' costume creator:

My mom and I always like to collaborate on detailed costumes every year for Halloween, and this year we decided it was time to tackle the main character from one of my favorite Halloween movies - Tim Burton's "Corpse Bride." This costume took an incredible amount of time to finish. We purchased a wedding dress on eBay and then dyed it, sprayed it, and cut it to make it look like an old, decaying dress. We created her flower bouquet by hand and sprayed the flowers to make them look dead. We also created her entire floral headpiece and veil by hand - again spraying and dying and cutting holes into it for the "dead and buried" look. We also purchased two finger gloves and the dyed/sprayed/frayed them to match the dress. I finished my look with lots and lots of blue makeup and careful application of decaying spots, along with the Corpse Bride's signature eyebrows and lip pout. I LOVED wearing this costume!!

LOVE your costume! What did you do for your hair? A wig? Spray? If so any info where to find those? Again, lovely job!

Hi Stephanie ~ thank you for your message! :-) I purchased a wig online in the blue color that I thought fit best with the costume. eBay is a good place to look for wigs. Keep in mind that many of those listings will be from companies in China, so look for good ratings and plan ahead due to longer shipping times. Have a happy Halloween!

I absolutely love this costume, I have been searching everywhere for one that I like and have fallen in love with yours. As I am not artistic I am unble to make one for myself, therefore was wondering if you would be willing to sell it? �� hope to hear from you soon Gemma

Are you selling the dress by any chance?

Hi Gemma ~ thank you for your nice comments! I am going to hold onto this dress for a while and possibly re-use it on another Halloween, so I won't be selling it at this time. Sorry. Hope you find something else that's great!
