Myself as Emily from Tim Burton's Corpse Bride. Photos taken with self-timer over Halloween 2006. By now I've come to terms with the fact that this will forever be the costume that I am never quite happy with and will always be revamping. ^__^; I began working on it the day after the movie was released in 2005, and since then I have remade the veil and dress twice, sampled every brand of blue theatrical makeup known to man, continually mangled my poor wig, and ripped/dyed/painted/dirtied/shredded more yards of fabric than I care to mention in hopes of achieving the perfect "decaying" look. These are shots from the last time I wore Emily, but hopefully there will be more to come in the future. I have pretty much determined to try my hand at Sally [of Nightmare Before Christmas fame] this summer, and so I have a feeling I may be reprising Emily soon, as well. Maybe I'll finally get it right next time!
Please no critiques/criticism. I'd like to keep this gallery happy! :3
