If I haven’t said it before, I’ll say it again.
I LOVE costuming.
Wearing costumes, making costumes…I don’t know what it is, but I love the feeling of making something come to life through your own hands from the book or screen that inspired you.
Last year, I made the Bride of Frankenstein, inspired by the classic 1935 film’s Elsa Lanchester depiction of the Monster’s bride. Although not perfect to the quality I wanted it (more flow-y, wider base, etc. etc.), it was a big enough hit for myself. Particularly the mastering of the hair.
Classic bride was not so much in this year, so it was a bit of a challenge finding a wig, which means I used my real hair instead. Thankfully, this video was a lot of help.
In the end, I think I was reasonably close. 🙂
If you could create a costume to a classic horror movie character, which would it be? (Personally, I’d love to make the Gilman for someone)
