My BFF bought me the book Creepy Cute when I went on a little road-trip to visit her... http://www.amazon.com/Creepy-Cute-Crochet-Zombies-Ninjas/dp/1594742324/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1224875913&sr=8-1

She is engaged so for a thanks for the book and letting me stay the night at her house I made her the skeleton bride and groom.  I sent the bride to her and the groom to her fiance.

I changed it a little.  I kind of found the patterns to be unnecessarily complicated, but luckily I know a thing or two about crocheting, so I just modified it a little for myself.

They look super cute! I hope the recieving couple like them ^^

I have the same book and found that by following the instructions, mine didn't seem to come out like they did in the book. In fact, none of them looked even remotely like they did in the book. With a little mod though, they came out more like the originals. I made the reaper and the ninja for my brother, the corporate zombie for my flat-mates dad, the nosferatu to see if I could follow the patterns and I attempted the bride and groom, but they remain unfinished and on the windowsill in my bedroom.

I'm making a blanket for my uni room as it gets so cold! If you can make/spare any 5X5 inch squares of crochet, I'd happily swap you for something! Please PM me!

I made them for friends who were getting married and were zombie bride and groom for Halloween last year! They are the only patterns I've made from the book.  I like the mouths you gave them and the pink veil is very cute!

Oh, I wanted to make a pair of these for my future sister-in-law with a card that read "'til death do you part", but my mother and sister FOBADE me. Said it was morbid or somesuch...  Tongue

But yours turned out really nice! I like the veil on the bride.

I wish I would have said, until death do you part!  That's a great idea!  I don't know what your mom was thinking.
