Halloween 2012: Zombie Bride and Groom, Beetlejuice and Lydia


This year for Halloween, two of my friends came to visit and we went out last weekend. My "husband" and I went as a zombie bride and groom and my friends went as Lydia and Beetlejuice from the 80's/90's cartoon (you may have watched this on TV when you were a kid if you are my age).

I made a huge mess making my costume. I acquired an 80's style wedding dress from a thrift store and ripped it up and spray painted it with black and red fabric paint and then applied fake blood. I did the same to an old white purse and white gloves that I found at the thrift store as well. For my veil, I sewed some sheer netting fabric from the craft store to a headband from WalMart and glued on flowers from the craft store. I put fake blood on these as well. I made my bouquet out of flowers and glitter spiders from the craft store. I wrapped the stems with gauze covered in fake blood.

For my makeup, I applied a white base and then sponged over it with black and red powder makeup. I also created fallout from a brush with loose eyeshadows of the same colours. I made some "wounds" and added some texture to my skin by using fake eyelash glue. I also added some stitches to the side of my lip and on my chest by gluing pieces of thread to my skin with eyelash glue. I got some really neat green prescription contacts to finish off the look.


I did my nails with a white background and sponged black and red over top. I made blood drops using a dark burgundy colour.
I think the makeup turned out pretty well and it didn't take very in the end.



My friend sewed the red and black spiderweb cape herself!

We found a priest to marry us when we went out, lol!

My favourite costume of the night was Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys. I am a huge Trailer Park Boys fan! It is a Canadian show, I am not sure if anyone out there has watched this before.



Did you have a good Halloween? What did you/your kids dress up as?
