Zombie, Ghost, or Vampire? Marie Antoinette Halloween Costumes

Updated on October 6, 2014

Two hundred years ago a doomed, innocent Queen lost her head to the guillotine of France. Yet every Halloween her ghost walks again at costume parties around the world - and the even more terrifying zombie or vampire Marie Antoinette!

I'm fascinated with the tragic, romantic history of the last Queen of France. She's a great inspiration for scary costumes, especially combined with today's fashions in horror.

So which version of the Undead Queen should I choose this year? The pale, trailing ghost; the bloody zombie; or the deathly, alluring vampire? A change of accessories changes the style, and there are some great videos to help me learn how to make up as an ethereal vision of terror.

Ghastly, Ghostly Marie

Marie Antoinette's ghost is all in white and palest grey, with just a touch of red at her neck or lips. Beautiful and sad, she drifts about the world mourning her fate.

Triple strands of pearls to emphasize that slender neck!

 

Zombie Marie Antoinette

Looks like history got it wrong - the doomed Queen never made it to the guillotine. Marie returns from the dead darker, bloodier, and with a shorter skirt for convenient lurching.
