Come Halloween, couples get a kick out of dressing as torrid lovers Bonnie and Clyde, Romeo and Juliet, and perhaps most alluring, Frankenstein and his twisted bride. Elsa Lanchester's turn as the Bride of Frankenstein in 1935 is surely one of the most memorable portrayals in horror flick history, with Helena Bonham Carter's performance in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein not far behind. Follow their lead to look the part, even if you're flying solo to this year's festivities (in which case, you may want to leave the costume wedding band at home and dab on a dark, mysterious scent that will entice handsome strangers). Try on Bride of Frankenstein makeup in our virtual makeup studio.The most basic theme you should strive to achieve looks fresh from the laboratory (a white coat, cloak or straight jacket and veil will work), but you can also opt for a resplendent ball gown that will sharply contrast a face marred with stitches, which can be drawn on with black eyeliner, or even burgundy lip liner.Modernize your look with a bejeweled bouffant or cascades of curls and ringlets held in place with high-endurance gels or sprays. Makeup should be extrem - either gory or glamorous with dramatic lips that could bestow the kiss of death. This look necessitates pitch-black kohl-rimmed eyes and pin-straight eyebrows that gravitate upward at the temples. In an ode to the electrical currents that brought this scream queen to life, use face paint to draw a lightning bolt over one eye.
