Dress Like Emily and Victor Van Dort (Corpse Bride) Costume for Cosplay & Halloween

Costumet Team

Emily and Victor’s story wasn’t actually one of love (or in any case, it isn’t their love for each other). Emily loved the idea of getting married and Victor loved his fiancée (who was not Emily).

A chance meeting accidentally got Victor married to the already deceased Emily and both had to go on adventures to get Victor safely back to his beloved.

Emily’s skin is already tinged blue since she’s already dead. She wears a billowing white wedding gown with a sweetheart neckline and long blue hair is framed with a long, lacy veil.

Victor looks pale and gaunt, true, but his Victorian-era outfit looks dapper and very gentleman-like. Here’s everything you need to look like Emily and Victor.
