Halloween Costumes In Your Closet: Bride of Frankenstein


Ever since Felicity dressed up as the Bride of Frankenstein in 1998, I’ve wanted to dress up as this iconic monster. So when I happened upon a vintage wedding dress at Value Village a few weeks ago, I knew it was time.


Costume Components

  • Bride of Frankenstein Wig
  • Monster makeup
  • Edgy jewelry — bonus for screw earrings!
  • White dress
  • Black separates

I found that the costume had more impact when I threw on a black bolero jacket and heels.


The monster makeup is critical for this costume! Here’s my makeup tips for the Bride of Frankenstein:

  1. Start with a white base.
  2. Cover your eyebrows with a glue stick to hide the texture so you can draw over them. Then blend with a light concealer.
  3. Apply dramatic eye makeup.
  4. Apply false eyelashes (tips on applying falsies here)
  5. Contour with grey eye shadow to emphasize your bone structure.
  6. Using a black liner, draw seams in your face.
  7. Take a brown eye shadow and line either side of the seam.
  8. Using a black pencil liner, draw in the holes and stitches.
  9. Apply dark lipstick.
  10. Then do the Monster Mash!

Short Hair Sunday: First Look at Short Hair Series with Matt Vee


Earlier this summer my photographer friend Matt Villanueva asked me, “How many ways do you think you could style your hair?” We decided to take this as a challenge and this series was born. Here’s a sneak peek at Look #1: Forward.

We had such a remarkable team involved in the project! Matt is actually a featured RAW Artist as well for an upcoming exhibition on October 15, 2015. Go buy a ticket and support local artists!

Can’t wait to show you the rest!!!
