We saw the idea of a Beheaded Marie Antoinette Halloween Costume on the internet and went on to make our own version. We went to second time around shops and found some lace material, along with other pieces to build the dress.

We built the upper part of the body using an old manican piece that I had and we cut off the shoulders (that was hard). We then used PVC pipe to build the piece to sit on the shoulders. The makeup was kind of easy. The blood was kind of outrageous. We bought the liquid blood and splashed it all over me once the costume was built. The problem there, the blood was dripping all night. I brought an extra bottle with me to have a true affect. We had to build the costume right onto me for it to fit well.

The biggest problem we had was that it was too tall to fit into the car. I had to sit in the back of an open bed truck (that was fun).

The costume was a total success. Everyone loved it and was totally amazed. I entered a couple of small contests and won. But I really enjoyed taking photos with other people the most.

After watching Kirsten Dunst in Marie Antoinette, I knew I wanted this Marie Antoinette Costume to be my Halloween Costume for 2008. I bought the dress at Goodwill. It was originally a strapless southern belle gown. My mom sewed on sleeves and layered the dress to make it look fancy like the dresses in the movie.

My hair was the the most difficult to do but it also made the costume. I watched a video on youtube.com getting the idea to pin a wig rolled into a ball in the middle of my head. The wig was wrapped in a net. Then I pulled my hair on top of it to make it look tall.

I found a blue bird and pinned it to the hair with some feathers. My parents throw big Halloween parties every year, and this year I won first place! This has been my favorite costume so far! My mom put a lot of work into sewing the costume and making it look fancy like the gowns in the movie. The costume was a big hit at our party.

I really never liked Halloween until I met my husband. Now as soon as Halloween ends we are thinking out our costumes for next year.

This Headless Marie Antoinette Costume got a lot of stares and a lot of applause at the Halloween parties we went to. The optical illusion of it really threw people off and they didn’t know where to look. (My face or the neck).

Other than holding my head to the side most of the night, this costume was very comfortable and fun to wear. Because my hands were under the dress, I had to drink out of a straw and didn’t get to snack :o) . The top part of Marie was mounted and carried in a back pack on my back.

This costume was act Gepetto the day before at another Halloween Party… don’t ask! We had a lot of fun making this costume and can’t wait to work on this year’s!

I had a long slip under the dress so my feet were under the dress. Yes, we were at the Y102 party! He has a great costume on deck this year.

I really needed a good distraction from typing up an essay so making the perfect Halloween costume -a Headless Marie Antoinette - seemed like the ideal choice.

I started with the bust which I made from paper mache (complete with nipples!), attached the arms made from tights, wire and newspaper and then mounted the whole thing onto a rucksack with a curtain rod to provide height.

This Homemade Headless Marie Antoinette Halloween Costume was so much fun to make and wear and, at least, one hundred people came up to me to have their photo taken. Well worth the effort!
