Awe Me’s DIY Cosplay Shop recently tackled Emily from The Corpse Bride. The character’s costume is haunting and a little macabre but also beautiful. Host Elizabeth Rage begins by going over the basics of the costume — even though it can be tempting to jump right into creating, it’s smart to think about the steps necessary and which parts are going to be tricky before you start working. It’s like reading the recipe before you start cooking. Emily’s ensemble involves a corset, a veil, and bones. Watch the above video and get all the details.
