About this deal

Tim told me about a character he had who had scissors instead of hands and I said, ‘Stop right there. I know exactly what to do with that,’ and went home. I knew that ( Edward Scissorhands) was my next weird suburban Frankenstein story” – Caroline Thompson, writer

Burton revealed, “I didn’t think he’d actually have scissors for fingers. I though they’d just be long sharp pieces of metal that weren’t finished – but this is much better!” The article writes, "To construct the scissor hands, Stan and his team searched for every different kind of pruning shear and scissor ever made."

Tom Cruise was asking the kind of questions about the character that can’t be asked for this character! Part of the delicacy of the story was not answering questions like, ‘How does he go to the bathroom? How did he live without eating all those years?’” – Caroline Thompson, writer The film’s casting director, Victoria Thomas, agrees: “Everyone could be a version of Edward Scissorhands. You know, you’re the only ‘this’ in a sea of ‘that’. The idea that you can’t touch people without hurting them? I think that was a big (motif). Tim was talking about that a lot. I don’t know, can’t you relate to him?” Stan Winston was the man responsible for creating Edward's 'scissor hands' and according to Tim Burton, the end product was better than he could have ever expected.

It’s a crushing moment, emblematic of why Edward Scissorhands has endured long after its release 25 years ago this month. Of all the reasons that Burton’s gothic autobiography continues to connect with audiences worldwide – the pastel colour palette, the dark humour, the flat-out weirdness of a man with blades for hands – perhaps the most potent is that we can all relate to Edward. I think everybody feels like Edward sometimes – that they don’t belong,” says Caroline Thompson, who wrote the script for the film. This Edward Scissorhands Costume for Women helps you turn into one of the main characters from the Edward Scissorhands series.

Hairdresser Lynda Kyle Walker took part in the film behind the scenes and according to the stylist, the process was very different compared to working at a salon. The hairdresser was dealing with lots of wigs, 19 total for the extras. In addition, she revealed that the wigs weren't cheap.

Even when Johnny Depp got cast as the lead in the role, he felt insecure, with rumors that he might've gotten fired. At the time, Tom Hanks was a rumored name to take his place but finally, that was all a hoax. Edward Scissorhands resonates with angsty teens because it was dreamt up by one. “Edward Scissorhands (…) began as a cry from the heart, a drawing from (Burton’s) teenage years that expressed the inner torment he felt at being unable to communicate with those around him, especially his family,” wrote Mark Salisbury in the book Burton on Burton. I think that Edward Scissorhands was sort of a veiled autobiography of Tim’s – that was always my take on it,” says the film’s art director, Tom Duffield. “Tim was the strange guy in America and I always had that vibe that it was autobiography.” That scribble handed to Caroline Thompson when Edward Scissorhands was still a twinkle in her eye, and the one Victoria Thomas used as a guide map for the cast list, was passed on to costume designer Colleen Atwood. That same drawing became the blueprint for Edward’s now-legendary costume.The story’s catalyst was, in fact, a drawing of Edward that Burton drew as a teenager. That’s all he gave to writer Caroline Thompson to work with, and she extracted this idea of an estranged boy with knives for hands who polarises a suburban community without the chemical aid of a single snort or toke. As for Johnny Depp, the actor used most of his real hair and extensions were added to his head of hair as well. The visuals, the story, the cast – all came together to write a love letter to the outsider. On loan from isolation, Edward Scissorhands manages to leave his mark in a town full of busybodies that can’t decide whether or not it wants to give him a shot, let alone room to figure himself out. Walking around under the plain guise of being a reject, Scissorhands manages to find both love and companionship against the odds. Through it all, he is the embodiment of that crippling feeling of being a loner, and that is why he’s such a magnetic figure – and one who has received the ultimate stamp of cultural clout: a Halloween costume.
