Homemade Frankenstein's Monster Couple Costume

Me and my girlfriend love dressing up for Halloween, Friday the 13th and any other excuse we get. Blood soaked limbs, faces and brains are usually the order of the day but this time we tried something a little different, a Homemade Frankenstein's Monster Couple Costume. No blood this time which was hard to do because blood is such fun.

We dressed up as Frankenstein's monster and bride. Started by painting my face a dark green using makeup, face paint and a few other things. It didn't take too long and looked great. Next I put stitches on my neck and forehead using a make up crayon. To seal the deal I attached the bolts which were hard to find. I COULD NOT fine any from fancy dress shops or anywhere so I made my own. I got rubber stops for the bottom of chair legs and I spray painted them a dull gray and they attatched apiece of black elastic through them and tied them to my neck.

It was a great idea because it was tight so the bolts didn't move all night. Of course Frankenstein's monster had black, oily horrible hair but I have a massive 30cm mohawk so I just put it up anyway.

Coolest Homemade Bride of Frankenstein Costume 8

The dress and bandages were purchased at a thrift store, make-up at a 99 cent store and the hair at a Sally Beauty supply.

The dress is a simple long dress. With regular bandages, I wrapped the left arm up to the shoulder, through the dress to the right shoulder and down again to the other hand. I painted my daughter's face white with a tinge of gray. I looked up a picture of the Bride of Frankenstein and painted the face based on the picture.

The hair was a little tricky. All the wigs I looked at seemed to be so fake. I went to Sally's and bought hair extensions. I cut through a hairband, got some foam, put wire through the foam and sewed the hairband around it. I hot-glued nylon around the wire and shaped it. I hot-glued the hair extensions onto the nylon. When putting on the hair, I fluffed out some of my daughter's hair and hair-sprayed it to the wig.

I didn't think this Bride of Frankenstein costume would come out as good as it did!

Wow
by: Lisa

Wow your costume is great!! That is the best one I have seen this far. I tried to make the costume but could not get the hair.

Love this!
by: Rochelle

This is great - I would love more explanation on how you created the wig. Great job!

The Hair!
by: Cari

I really want to be the bride for Halloween, but I'm daunted by the hair. Your daughter's hair is the best I have seen!

I read your description on how to make the hair, but I still cannot understand how you did it! What kind of hair band did you use? An elasticized full circle one or a hard plastic semi-circular one? When you cut through the hairband, are you cutting the circle shape and leaving it as a single strand?

What kind of foam did you use? A thin craft foam sheet or foam rubber? What kind of wire? A thin floral wire?

As for the nylon, was that a pair of panty hose stuffed with something that you shaped into a cone?

Any further insight and instructions that you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks and awesome job!

The HAIR!

Please, please, please give me more info on the hair! We have tried a couple different techniques, but so far nothing I'm in love with. Your daughter looks fab!

I had bought two (yes 2!) old wedding dresses from the local thrift store. Because I didn't realize how much weight I gained recently, I didn't bother trying them on. On "party" day, I tried each dress on, neither fit. So my very clever sister took me to BigLots, bought a $5 white bed sheet and a $5 sheer curtain. She cut, slashed, safety pinned and created this GREAT looking Homemade Bride of Frankenstein Halloween Costume! Should have saved my $ and done this from the beginning!!!

Here on this Frankie and Freak Costume you can see i slapped on one of those latex prostetics for my face and painted it green.

Then I cut up some black patent leather fabric and some shorts. As for Frankie's freak, she bought an outfit and we made some minor adjustments like the iron on writing on the butt area.

I made this Frankenstein costume from some craft foam. It took about an hour and a half and cost about $10.00 to make. I had lots of fun making it!
