Halloween 2011 Costume to die for!!! BWAHAHAHA!

Normally for Halloween I am something “cute” or something “nice”!!  Last year I was the cutest “Broom Hilda” you ever did see!!!!  Well when I was scouring the internet I came across this tutorial  for a Headless Bride at Instructables.  I thought this was the best costume ever!!!  I so wanted to make it!!  But to find an old wedding dress at an affordable cost would be hard.  Well I just so happened to go to a thrift store clearance center and paid $10 for a fantastic  dress!  It was my destiny to make this costume!  So I started making the bust on Sunday evening thanks to the help of my niece Alex!  Now because my dress had long sleeves I didn’t want to stuff them, Sara over at Mom Endeavors made a Spider wreath using this!

Here is a photo of the bust using pipe insu­la­tion for the arms.

Then it was on to painting, gorefying and dressing our blushing bride!!!

She even had the most beautiful wedding ring!!


The costume took me about a week or so, I used the few hours between arriving home from work and bedtime to put in the hours to make her!!!   So are you ready to see the finished product???

Hope you all had a safe and fun Halloween 2011!!!

    WHOA! Totally disgusting! But, SO well done! It turned out great! Glad the pipe insulation idea was helpful! :) It’s SUCH an inexpensive product for crafting with!
