Halsey put together an amazing Halloween costume this weekend, dressing up as Emily from Tim Burton's Corpse Bride for her Instagram followers. The singer went all out with blue makeup, contouring and costume, even with nowhere to go to show her creation off. Fans of the singer were overcome by the display.
Halsey posted four pictures of her Corpse Bride costume on social media this week, testing out different expressions with the makeup arrangement. She included a shot of the original stop-motion character as well for reference. Before long, the comment sections filled with praise and adulation for the singer, who played the part perfectly.

For those that don't remember, Corpse Bride is a 2005 film co-directed by Burton and Mike Johnson. It stars Helena Bonham Carter as Emily — a woman murdered and buried in a wedding dress — and Johnny Depp as Victor Van Dort — an anxious young suitor who accidentally marries her. Halsey was clearly a fan of the movie, quoting a line from it in the caption of her Instagram posts.
Fans liked it as well, judging by the response she got on Instagram. Many remarked that it had been too long since they watched the animated movie and that they would be searching it out now that Halsey had brought it to mind. Here is a look at the response she got on social media.
just one question HOW ?!? pic.twitter.com/Ttkyran2gT— ً (@KANEKIKOO) October 29, 2020
Honestly I was obsessed with the show Face Off in high school and learned how to do a lot of SFX with YouTube tutorials! Combined with having to learn on the fly for music videos and stuff. Like all the SFX for the injuries in the HFK era videos are done by me! https://t.co/Fva7IrDFzW— h (@halsey) October 29, 2020
The first question man fans had was whether Halsey had done the makeup herself, and the answer was yes. She let them know that she had done the Corpse Bride cosplay on her own and that it had a few ill effects on her skin care regimen.prevnext
