A twist on the classic Monster Bride or Zombie Bride, this is my interpretation of a Ghost Bride. I have always been attracted to dark, creative, unique costumes- and I think this ghost bride is all of those things. Inspired by classic Halloween archetypes, you can let your imagination run wild and create something that is one-of-a-kind and your artistic vision. For this look - I really wanted to create something luxe and fairytale-like. I was also inspired by one of my Instagram-stalks, the Australian artist and illustrator, Bec Winnel (@becwinnel). Equal parts spooky and beautiful, the Ghost Bride comes back to haunt her lost lover every year on Halloween night - for they are separated by her accidental death at their wedding. She waits an eternity to be reunited.
