BOO. by cupcake-rufflebutt BOO. by cupcake-rufflebutt
Myself as Emily and Claire [Final_Memories] as Victor from Tim Burton's Corpse Bride. Photograph taken by Deathcom at Anime Central 2007.

Happy Halloween! I thought it might be nice to upload a cute Corpse Bride shot to help celebrate my favourite holiday, since my workplace is fairly stifling where Halloween is concerned. [I work with elementary school children and, for the life of me, I cannot comprehend the way our public school system chooses to outright ignore such a fun time of year. But that is another rant for another time.]

The lighting in this shot was very dim and yellow and the file I received was too small to do much with, so I played around in Photoshop until I hit upon the idea of simply making the shot greyscale with just a hint of my blue bodypaint showing through. I love how my fingers actually look like bones. And the expression on Claire's face is SO adorable, hahah. I have high aspirations to remake these one day, since I have learned so much since I first set about making Emily back in 2006. Both costumes and wigs were constructed/styled by myself.

Please no critiques/criticism. I'd like to keep this gallery happy! :3

If I ever do her again, it will be a made-from-scratch Emily, since most of the original costume pieces are worn to bits and pieces. But yes, I would one day like to bring her back!

Aw man. I still love these. And you remind me about how next year for Halloween, I want to cosplay Victoria. I found a wig that's a GORGEOUS pearly-grey color, and I would love to play with the fabrics, and the style, and the makeup, and just... yes.

Now that's the way to celebrate Halloween.
For me its all about trick-or-treating. Pitty it only comes once a year.

I'm actually not dressing up this year at all, LOL. But that's one of the more fun aspects of being a cosplayer - We can wear crazy, outlandish things several times a year!

Ooh, I love this costume! The veil looks so pretty, and adding it all in grayscale was a nice idea.

Thank you! I love the fabric I found for my veil - it is the lightest fabric I've ever seen, and hangs in the air with even the slightest breeze - so I think that if I do ever remake the costume, I will salvage the veil for it. ^__^

This has become one of my favorite movies ever...my friends couldn't figure out why I went back to see it four times in theatres. It was just so wonderful. xD

These are INCREDIBLE costumes...Tim Burton would be proud!

I love it as well. I wish I were able to watch it more frequently, but the ending upsets me each time. ;__; It's perfect, but far too sad.
