Bride of Frankenstein Halloween Costume

Ladies first. Our Bride of Frankenstein costume starts with the stitches. You can't see them well in the couples costume photo so I did a close up of how cool these stitches temporary tattoos look applied. They last for a few days so prepare to wear these with pride to work or the grocery store and have people stare! 😂

Apply the tattoos to clean and dry skin then add any additional makeup afterwards.

The wig is a little tricky, I stuffed some plastic bags into the end to keep it upright, otherwise it starts to sag. The necklace I picked up at a thrift shop but there's fun options like this metal chain one online.

The makeup always takes longer than you think it will! Start with the white and then darken under the eyes and add black lipstick. Then spray your face with makeup setting spray! This is important, otherwise it's all going to rub or sweat off and look blotchy. And the bonus is you can use it for all future events where you'd like your regular makeup to last.

Frank is a lot harder to make look seamless with the half wig. But it's better than a full mask. Just use double stick tape to adhere the edges better to the skin. My hubs used this costume FOUR times so some makeup applications were better than others.

If you really want to blend the wig into the face, use some white face paint to mix with the green to the color is a little more gradual. But overall it works fine on its own, so don't stress about the makeup being perfect. Darken the eyes and use eyeliner top and bottom to reduce the white ring appearance around eyelashes.

A group costume for a Monster family has lots of options.

  • Frankenstein & Bride couples costume

  • Mummy
  • Other options – Vampire, Warewolf, etc.

Mad Scientist Halloween Costume

For a Frankenstein family costume you MUST have Dr. Frankenstein! The creature we think of as “Frankenstein” is actually Dr. Frankenstein's monster. He probably didn't look like Einstein but I love the wild white wig and he evokes a bit of Doc Brown from Back to the Future. Another lovable mad scientist! So any way you look at it – this science gig is pretty fun for Halloween.

Dr. Frankenstein's Bride Halloween Costume

Teenage girl Halloween Costume Elizabeth Levanza Dr. Frankenstein's actual bride

Getting a teenager to play along with a family costume can be tricky so my gothic princess decided she was Elizabeth Lavenza, the actual bride of Dr. Frankenstein in Mary Shelley's classic novel. Too bad she gets murdered on her wedding night.

As long as she got a crown and a pretty dress, my daughter didn't mind!

The long sleeves on the dress make it tricky for daily tasks but she fared okay at school on Halloween. The black cape is simply black fur fabric cut in a half circle with neck hole and black ribbon I sewed on the corners. It's pretty rough, but it helped temper the cold weather and allowed her to stay warm AND in character.

Mummy Halloween Costume

This mummy costume is my FAVORITE! It was SO easy and simply zips up the back and wears like pajamas. You seriously don't need anything else but we added the black eye makeup and some gauze strips wrapped around his head and across his face for the parties.

At school he wore the jumpsuit all by itself, and it was perfect. I would have preferred white shoes but sometimes mama can't be too picky when the family is already playing along!
