My homemade Headless Zombie Bride costume was made with some old net curtains and a few balloons, newspapers and paint.
I built a torso to sit above me and hold my beheaded head. I blew up three balloons, formed them into an upside-down triangle and wrapped them in newspaper and glue. I then added a smaller balloon for the neck. Once the glue had set, I was able to paint the torso.
The arms were made from scrunched-up newspaper which was stuffed into the net curtains and sewn up on the sides. I then wrapped a bed sheet around my body which reached to the ground. I draped over and sewed some of the net curtain to the sheet, making it look more like a wedding dress.
I attached hangers to the back to hold the torso up while it was on my back, and sewed it all to a bag, which I carried on my back under the dress.
With some backcombed hair and a drop of face paint, I completed the look and had a very happy Halloween.
I got the idea of a Homemade Headless Chef Costume thanks to this great web page, it was real cheap to build it. The neck was made from unicel material and we put play-dough at the top to give it a different effect. On the arms we placed bubble wrap paper to fill them up so it wouldn't be heavy.
I bought a dress at a second hand store and made a hole in the middle, that's where you stick your head out. Basically the whole structure of the body was made with a backpack that had a stick, which was holding the neck. To make it more realistic we put an apron and placed blood all over it. We basically spent no more than twenty dollars to make the whole custom.
On the street people where surprised and they thought it was a fake doll. We had a lot of fun scaring people while we where trick or treating. Thanks for reading this and I hope is helpful.
This Headless Girl persona overtakes me every year on Halloween. I feel it coming on, kind of like a sneeze, and to deny its full expression would be every bit as dissatisfying and frustrating as not to sneeze.
My homemade Headless Girl Halloween costume looks a little different every year, as she finds newer and grosser ways to manifest, and this was my latest. What does not change, however, is the effect I have on the neighborhood; people absolutely freak out.
This year, in Montgomery, AL, after the trick-or-treaters had disappeared, I took Headless Girl on the road. We went to The Rave, The Mellow Mushroom and Winn Dixie and, although entered no contests, we knew lots of kids would be sleeping with the lights on for a while!

Homemade Headless Ghost Lady Halloween Costume
I found an old dress at a vintage thrift shop in my Brooklyn neighborhood for this Homemade Headless Ghost Lady Halloween Costume. I built the body from a piece of packing Styrofoam taped to the handle of a rolling backpack. It was almost the right size already, just had to sculpt the waist.
For the neck I turned a yogurt container upside down and glued some of the shaved Styrofoam to the top for a jagged cut flesh look, and painted with acrylic paints. The blood is just acrylic paint on the gloves and apron. I wish I had added some fake blood to my neck, as in some photos you can see my neck, but all in all, a success!
My daughter wanted to be something really great, something none of her friends had ever done.... this is homemade headless bride costume is what I came up with.
I bought an old wedding dress at a Thrift Shop and some filling (from a fabric store) to stuff the body, I picked up some white gloves at the dollar store and bought some really cool make-up. This costume was so popular that people were dumping entire bowls of candy into her bag as well as snapping LOTS of photos.
