Tim Burton Cosplay

We didn’t bother dressing up for Hallowe’en this year, but we did put a lot of effort into our costumes for the Danny Elfman concert we went to last weekend. I wasn’t sure what characters we should choose, but in the end I settled on “Beetlejuice” as Marty looks more like Beetlejuice than he looks like any of the characters that Jonny Depp has played.  I was able to buy a costume for Marty, but I made my own.  I ended up feeling like I was drowning in tulle. The 20 metres I bought isn’t really enough for anything other than a fake wedding dress, but it took over my apartment.

The concert was wonderful with music from many Tim Burton movies including “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” “Beetlejuice,” “Batman,” “Sleepy Hollow,” “Edward Scissorhands,” and “The Corpse Bride”.  I love the music from “Edward Scissorhands” and it was great to hear it performed live by a choir and orchestra.  Sandy Cameron, the violin soloist, was amazing.  I didn’t know that Danny Elfman sang and was very impressed with him singing the role of “Jack Skeleton”.  I also liked the multi-media presentation that was shown along with the music with many beautiful concept drawings of the various characters.  It was a great night out.
