How to Dress Up As The Frankenstein Monster

Frankstein is a novel about a monster that was built and brought to life by mad scientist, Dr. Frankenstein.

This famous book was written by Mary Shelley and it was published in 1818 when she was only 21 years old! (She first started writing this story at the tender age of 18).

The novel also inspired many Frankenstein movies, such as:

  • Frankenstein (1931) - The all-time horrorclassic starring Boris Karloff
  • Bride of Frankenstein (1935)
  • Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man (1943) - Starring Bela Lugosi and Lon Chaney
  • Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948)
  • Young Frankenstein (1974) - Mel Brooks' classic comedy spoof
  • Frankenweeniw (1984) - Tim Burton's very first movie
  • Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (1994) - Starring Kenneth Branagh and Robert DeNiro

It was already one in the morning; the rain pattered dismally against the panes, and my candle was nearly burned out, when, by the glimmer of the half-extinguished light, I saw the dull yellow eye of the creature open.
