Corpse Bride Costumes

Showing the single result

Our Corpse Bride costumes make it easy to find a good female Halloween costume.  A classic costume inspired by a classic scary movie can be a challenge, as the most outrageous, wicked, and frightening protagonists in horror films are typically male. Adapting iconic characters such as Leatherface, Pinhead, and Michael Meyers into a woman’s costume requires a fair amount of creative license to be done successfully. This is where movies like Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride bring new and interesting possibilities to Halloween costuming.

Emily, better known as the Corpse Bride, is both sexy and creepy, and it’s up to you which aspect you want to emphasize. For her tattered, white wedding dress, you can choose a more traditional design or go for a sexier style depending on your personal preferences. Her long blue locks, pale face, and striking eye makeup provide a great opportunity to create a dramatic Halloween look.

A Corpse Bride costume encapsulates the unique blend of gothic charm and whimsical romance that makes Tim Burton's "Corpse Bride" a cult classic. This iconic character offers an exquisite combination of spooky and stylish, making it an excellent choice for Halloween, especially for those who desire a little elegance with their eeriness.

"Corpse Bride," released in 2005, is an animated stop-motion fantasy film directed by Tim Burton and Mike Johnson. The story follows Victor, a young man who accidentally marries a dead bride named Emily while practicing his wedding vows. The film draws heavily on the aesthetic of the Gothic era, blending dark humor and tragic romance in equal measure. Emily, the Corpse Bride, is a memorable character with her ethereal beauty and tragic love story, making her an appealing choice for a Halloween costume.

Creating an authentic Corpse Bride costume involves several key accessories. Emily's wedding dress, a tattered, ragged Victorian gown in shades of blue and gray, is the centerpiece of the ensemble. A flowy, pale blue or gray veil completes the bridal look. Another distinctive aspect of Emily's appearance is her skeletal hand, which can be replicated with a glove or hand-painted accessory. For makeup, a light blue face paint serves as the base, while dark eye makeup and light purple or blue lipstick replicate Emily's haunting visage. Finally, a long, raggedy, light-blue wig will bring Emily's look to life (or to the afterlife).

A Corpse Bride-themed group costume provides a wealth of characters to choose from, making it a perfect choice for friends or family. For instance, some group members can dress as other inhabitants of the underworld, like the lively skeleton Bonejangles, or the maggot who acts as Emily's "conscience." Others could opt to represent characters from the world of the living, like the aristocratic Everglot family or Victoria, Victor's intended bride. A group costume such as this would create an exciting dynamic, perfectly capturing the contrast between the world of the living and the dead in the film.

For couples, a Corpse Bride-themed costume provides a unique opportunity to embody the film's romantic subplot. One partner can take on the role of Emily, the Corpse Bride, while the other can dress as Victor, the nervous groom. This would make for a fun and creative Halloween costume that encapsulates the romantic, melancholic, and spooky vibe of the movie. Another fun idea is to pair Emily with another character from Tim Burton's collection, like Jack Skellington from "The Nightmare Before Christmas," for a Burtonesque crossover.

In conclusion, a Corpse Bride costume is a fantastic choice for Halloween, encapsulating both the spooky and romantic aspects of the season. With its unique and distinctive aesthetic, it's sure to turn heads and spark conversation wherever you go. Whether you're stepping out solo, as part of a group, or as one half of a couple, the Corpse Bride offers a hauntingly beautiful Halloween costume choice.

Corpse Bride is a story of love and greed and fortuitous accidents told in that dark and twisted way Tim Burton does so well. Emily, the main character for which the film is named, is voiced by Helena Bonham Carter. Even in animated form, Bonham Carter’s sensuality and quirkiness shine through. To accentuate your Corpse Bride costume, add dramatic, larger-than-life eyelashes and embrace her love for music and dance.
