These costumes were pretty easy to make once I figured out how I was going to pull it off. I wish I had taken pictures as I was making them but I will try to explain the process as best I can. I found the brides dress and grooms coat and shirt at a thriftstore for@  $10.00. I had to buy 2 coats and shirts so I could add extra length to the grooms attire. To get the height of the costume I used backpacks which we wore. I attached a large piece of foam for the back and shoulders to a piece of cardboard which was long enough to attach with ducktape to the backpack also. I filled nylons with stuffing for the armes and tied them together  so they could be secured to the foam with the ducktape. I used golves for the hands and added pipecleaner to the stuffing so I could position the fingers a bit. The necks are made from paper mache that was formed right on the top of the foam.Add some hot glue to keep the arms in place, a few excessories, and some blood - and your done. I have to say using the back packs was the best part of this costume because the held the weight of the costume and kept it centered.
We won first place in a huge Halloween costume party. Around 600-1000 people thanks to your inspiration. I found your pic and we decided on making it for the party. It was a big hit! People were coming up to us all night asking if they could take our pic.
