Halloween costume inspiration

Earlier on I was zapping through channels with Mr.Fish, when I stumbled upon "The Corpse Bride" by Tim Burton.

I've always loved Tim Burton, one of my favourite movies of all times is "Nightmare before Christmas" - it's pratically a tradition to see it at least once a year around Halloween/Xmas.
I'd already seen this film more than once, but I couldn't resist watching it again, also because Mr.Fish had never seen it (unforgivable, I know!).
After the film I got a sudden surge of inspiration for the perfect Halloween costume. I ran to my laptop in search of ways to make it happen, and landed on an amazing photoshoot of the gorgeous brazillian model Adriana Lima.

 Oh, how I wish I could pull it off like her!

If I touch a burning candle, I can feel no pain. If you cut me with a knife, it's still the same. And I know her heart is beating, and I know that I am dead; yet the pain here that I feel, try and tell me it's not real, and it seems that I still have a tear to shed.- Emily , The Corpse Bride.


  1. i love this idea :)
    i really wanted to be a corpse bride last year when i got engaged and my party was halloween time, i couldn't get hold of the outift i was after though.


  2. Charlotte - I know, it's such a great outfit, but not the easiest to accomplish! :( x♥

  3. I love Tim Burton! Sweeney Todd is my fav though :) I'm still stuck for Halloween ideas at the moment I'm thiking maybe Lara Croft xxx

  4. @ Rachael- I love Sweeney Todd too!
    I've dressed up as Lara Croft before, so much fun! Makes you feel empowered! ;) xx
