My Chemical Romance Cosplay Costumes

The album The Black Parade was such a success, and along with it came the music video for Welcome to the Black Parade. This single was where the costumes, designed by Colleen Atwood, were first seen in the music video. The music video starts in a hospital room and then transitions to an ash-covered town surrounded by destroyed buildings. It four main characters are named Patient, Fear, Regret and Mother War and surround the topic of death. Their costumes are based off marching band uniforms but are black to symbolize the mourning of the dead or dying. 

This outfit wouldn’t look complete unless you brought My Chemical Romance back together! Get your friends involved and have them come along as the other members of the band and rock out to The Black Parade. If you think your costumes should be paraded around, don’t forget to submit some photos to our Halloween Costume Contest!

About My Chemical Romance

My Chemical Romance didn’t know if they could beat their previous album, Life on the Murder Scene, but once they released The Black Parade, they were onto bigger and better things. The album follows a character, named “The Patient”, who is dying of cancer. Through the fourteen songs, the story of the character’s death, the afterlife, past experiences, and reflections are shown. 

Death appears to the “The Patient” in the image of a parade as the lead singer, Gerard Way, had an idea of death appearing to someone in the form of their favorite memory. The band’s outfits were similar to The Beatles Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band look, but are black to show mourning. The song was such a success that it was given the Platinum Europe Award for one million sales in Europe and was listed in the 500 songs from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
