Step 1: Makeup.

use the whitest foundation u have and mix with eye shadow apply to face . use various blue tones to highlight and contour your features to appear more skull like. use white eyeliner and apply to bottom eyelid to make the eye apparently bigger . add fake doll eyelashes to top of ur lashes and mascara on top lashes . don't put any mascara on bottom ! apply bottom lashes below ur white eyeliner . add some nose features and color ur eyebrows in and shape to appear saddened and finish off with a lipstick off ur choice . and Boom! ur make up is complete (:

Step 2: The Dress (front)/back

for the dress I got a vintage wedding dress for $30 from good will and cut it up , all the bottom edges and cut holes . I burned the edges to appear more old.

Step 3: The Dress (paint)

after being cut up I then took some blue spray paint and faded it on edges . I suggest to be very patient with the part , if u rush u will get lines and extra spray in places u don't want sprayed. I then used a black on the very tips to add a darkness to it. but then ran out. lol. the bow is probably my favorite to do. I enjoyed that part alot , I blocked each layer and sprayed just the ends . also spray the edges of the lace all around dress to even color.

Step 4: The Veil and Boquet

for the veil I just used the original veil and sewed on some blue flowers . I then tore a couple holes and spray painted it all over , this part u can go crazy on . makes it look old. with a blue hue. just like Emily dead look haha . for the boquet I just bought some flowers from Walmart put them together and wrapped a ribbon around with a bow at end . then spray painted with a deeper more rustic blue. and boom ! ur done. now u just need to find victor.! happy hunting! :)
