The Corpse Bride contained many shining examples of Tim Burton’s designs, especially Victor and Emily. Instructables user Shamps came up with some rather spot on costumes depicting the duo – they look like they came to life from stop motion models. He used lifecasts of himself and his girlfriend with alginate and plaster bandages for the heads and cast the final pieces in urethane foam. Victor’s and Emily’s faces were sculpted from WED clay:
WED clay (Walter Elias Disney Clay) was used to sculpt Victor and Emily on our foam life casts. It’s a great water-based clay that does not dry out as quickly. This ensured a perfect fit for the masks. The masks were covered in crystal clear matte finish to seal the sculpture and prep for molding
And the bones:
Worm, Tie, and Bones: The worm, tie, ribs, arm bones, collar bones, and leg bones were sculpted in Chavant NSP medium clay and molded with plaster to make latex castings. The raw rubber pieces were then airbrushed and covered in glow in the dark paint.
