Coolest Homemade Corpse Bride Halloween Costume

This Homemade Corpse Bride Halloween Costume was more of a challenge for me than the scary clown was. I wanted to look as accurate as I could; basically, I wanted to look as much like Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride as possible.

I bought a white wig and a bouquet of black roses. I went looking in thrift stores for a pale blue dress, and I could not find one. It was so frustrating. About a week before Halloween, my mom offered me her old wedding dress. It was a faded yellow color, not exactly what I had in mind, but it worked. Some days, I still can’t believe my mom let me out of the house in that.

I had planned on entering the costume contest, but in the Best Group category, with my school’s GSA. We had planned on being a rainbow, but no one else remembered, so I signed up for Scariest Costume at the last minute. I was up against a really bad-looking vampire, and a really well-done Chucky, complete with his bride in doll form. I truly didn’t think I was gonna win. And when the results were announced, they said Chucky had tied with the Corpse Bride!

  1. This is Just Some Constructive Criticism For a Future Corpse Bride costume. First there is no need for a “Pale Blue” dress usually Thrift stores own some wedding dress that you can spray paint certain parts blue and cut the ends to make it look old put a blue wig with that and other accessories and you have “CORPSE BRIDE” :)

    Happy Halloween
