Emily – The Corpse Bride

The Corpse Bride

  • Completed for: Halloween 2005
  • Worn at: Halloween 2005

    This costume is just a Halloween costume that I threw it together during midterms and the opening of the opera I was in. The dress was an 80s prom dress I found at a resale shop and altered. I removed huge puffy sleeves. My makeup was backwards Friday because I was silly that night, but I fixed it for Saturday. I would have painted all my skin but I decided on a dyed leotard to keep warm. Parading your Halloween costumes up and down the streets in Wisconsin can be REALLY COLD! If you look closely you can see the maggot I made in my bouquet of flowers I painted blue. And I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t make a couple goofy faces. The makeup only enhances the insanity.
