DIY Halloween Costume Series - Bride of Frankenstein


This is more of a modern version of the Bride of Frankenstein. Instead of using a sheet I wanted to use something more fashionable for lack of a better term so I picked up this lacy round tablecloth. All I had to do was cut a hole in the middle of it. I went for a bit of a poncho look but instead it just added twenty pounds. Oh well. I had fun. My favorite part were the tights. I picked them up at Walmart but they lasted all but two seconds. If they had been a little thicker I would have kept them and worn them year round. I had a pretty hard crush on these tights. The messy beehive was fun to do too. I really liked it and will have to try this for another day. There's a lot of would-haves in this paragraph because I was strapped for time putting it together, which was a bit of a bummer. I had to hurry and get it all done and take pictures before dropping Tyrone off for work.

I do love it though and I still haven't decided if this is what I'm actually going to be on Halloween.

Do you know what you're going to be yet? Let me know I would love to hear.
Supplies:
round lace tablecloth, skeleton tights (or a bright color pair of tights), white skirt, long sleeve shirt (mine was gray but you can't see it very well), black belt, flats or some killer heels would look good too, contrasting color hair piece (if you've seen the MS version they used white yarn for the strip in her hair),

I love those tights! I still have no idea what I'm going to be this year. I'm failing at Halloween.

I LOVE this. It looks awesome. Is that all your own hair? I am so impressed right now.
