And here's our journey......
to make the " bride of Frankenstein":
Old wigs, one white , one with black hair
Optional: nails, lashes
To make " Frankenstein"
Old sport coat ( we got ours at thrift shop)
Cardboard to line the shoes
Optional: gloves we got ours at clearance they were actually zombie hands and I hand painted them to match the mask.
White shirt( adult size I got one at the thrift shop) you will be cutting this one and making this into an old fashion lab coat that closes from the back
Optional: head lamp which I made with an old make up case and a headband
Dr Frankenstein name tag :)
Step 1: "The Bride"
Start by combing out Your black curly wig , Trim the hair all over to create a shorter style easier to comb up, now use your hairspray and use it abundantly while combing up, secure w Bobby pins at the sides,
now on to the sides of her hair , the white section of her hair , use the second wig ( white) and cut it and hot glued it on , this will require major hairspray and more bobbypins , leave that aside to dry .
Grab a sheet and cut in the center (for your head ) aim for a square form around the neckline, it should be pretty close to your actual neck, now for the shoulder area add shoulder pads , I hot glued mine , now cut the fabric dangling down with a pair of scissors I did so while I was wearing it , go all the way up just before getting to the shoulder pads . Now use old bandages for your hands including your fingers , yes it can be a little uncomfortable if you do it tight so remember to try and leave it a little lose for comfort or u can always just wear a white long sleeved shirt or dress instead.
For my makeup : I used a bride of Frankenstein inspired makeup tutorial and added my own little twist with different colors
And your done!
Step 2: "Frankenstein "
We got a used mask from eBay and repainted with a sponge and some acrylic paint to look a little more "alive" , I added bolts (wooden corks) because it only had one , I hot glued them where the originals one day had stood.
I also bought a cheap pair of light gray zombie hands at the halloween store and repainted them w the same color of the mask to make it more uniform. I visited the thrift store and scored a blazer jacket for 1.00 ,and some black pants for 2.00, And he wore his very own shirt and your done!
Step 3: "Dr. Frankenstein"
I went down to the thrift shop and purchased an adult size (small ) long length sleeve shirt ,
And started it by having my 2 year old try it on for size, I marked the sides and I took the sleeves off completely,didn't take me to long to do the vest like form, cut all the extra fabric off , then made sleeves and added a cuff to give it a more classic vintage look.
I thought what could be cooler than an old vintage head lamp ?
So I got an old hair band ( black)
A pumpkin light
An old piece of metal from my compact
I made a hole in the center of the metal with a nail and a hammer, hot glued the light w the metal, colored the light black and hot glued it onto the hair band!
Trick or treat basket:
Hot glue corks on to the sides of your basket, we got ours at the dollar store, picked up the corks there and painted them gray.
And we're done!!!
