Neither Boris Karloff nor Elsa Lanchester were ever as model bright pretty as this pair in the roles. At least not in their make up!
But we're supposed to be looking at the Frankenstein costumes, not the people wearing them; and these are top of the range to start us off. In Character's fancy dress outfits are always quality.
It's difficult here to see the detail on the Bride of Frankenstein costume. The bodice part is swathed in lace and organza, while the choker has bolts attached. They are made from vinyl and probably shouldn't be plugged into the mains.
Included in this outfit is the distinctive wig, which is really what elevates this from being a fancy dress to noticeably aping Elsa Lanchester's classic role.
The Bride's long, fish-tail wedding dress is 100% polyester. Her monstrous groom's outfit is also mostly polyester, with cotton thrown into the mix too. Both costumes are machine washable.
Frankenstein's creature costume comes in four parts. The tattered pants/trousers; the jacket with a scar design shirt attached; vinyl shoe covers; and the vinyl headpiece.
Personally I would add a little make-up to create a ghastly pallor worthy of Boris or Elsa. That doesn't come with these costumes.
Everyone loves The Munsters. :)
Good to see a whole new generation loving The Munsters.
I adored it! I hated The Addams Family when it first came on because it took The Munsters off. Then I got used to it and loved that too.
My vote would have to go with the Munsters' costumes. I always did love that show!
