Picking the right Halloween costume is a difficult task. You can go for something nostalgic, something classic or something super simple. The endless options can become overwhelming. We say, embrace the scary side of the holiday this year. Because c’mon, you don’t get to wear fake blood everyday, now do you? For an outfit that is a little glamorous but still totally haunting here are 11 ways to be a bride back from the dead this Halloween.
1. Corpse Bride: Being dead never looked so good. Make Tim Burton proud by channeling one of his most popular characters this Halloween. This look will have you feeling blue in all the right ways. (via AWSM Blog)

3. Zombie Bridesmaids: We know all about the back-from-the-dead bride, but what about her badass bridesmaids? Forget the couples costume. Here’s a fun look for you and your favorite group of ladies. (via Costume Prize)
4. Silver Bride Costume ($40): We aren’t always the biggest fans of pre-made costumes but this one is definitely a keeper. This lady is obviously totally scary and ghostly now, but we get the feeling she was a class act in her former life.
6. Rockabilly Bride of Frankenstein: If you want to put your own spin on the costume, here’s the perfect way to do so. Transport the bride of Frankenstein from Switzerland to the local sock hop with this ’50s interpretation. (via Halloween Forum)

10. Dead Flapper: The flapper girl costume has been done to death. And so what better way to go about it than to become a ’20s bride, hungry for brains? This look is super fun and would be much more moveable than strutting around in a giant gown all night long. (via The Uptown Bride)
11. Diva Bride: If you don’t want to go too gloomy but are looking for something a little tamer than a candy skull face, follow Christina Aguilera’s lead with a colored wig! It is a subtle way to make things more cheerful even though you’re, well you know… dead. (via Brit + Co)
