I worked like a crazy person to sew this whole Corpse Bride costume together by hand. I also cut and painted the end of the dress and veil to match the movie version. I did my own make up which is why the eyes are so high up :).
I have taken it to various contests and won a few second and first places, but the best reaction was of my friend who compared me the Lindsey Lohan in mean girls. The part where she shows up with a crazy outfit and all the girls are barely dressed. I got a lot of laughs and great compliments. I loved making my own costume. It was a lot of fun showing my rommie I could pull it off while staining our entire floor blue!
It cost me about 30 dollars including makeup.
