ZOMBIE COSTUMES


Remember, zombies are living dead and usually portrayed as having just crept out of the grave. So the costume you choose should look like those that the deceased would be wearing.

Zombie Makeup
Remember, a zombie is a reanimated corpse and their dead flesh is a very light gray in color.

First, mix up enough base color makeup to cover all exposed skin, meaning your face, neck and hands. We use a mixture white grease paint with enough black to make it a light gray, then add just hint of green.

Apply the base makeup to the face and neck, covering to the hair line, ears, anything that will be showing except the hands which will be done very last, after you put the costume on.

Once all exposed skin has been covered, use a small makeup sponge and a very small amount of black grease paint to darken the area's around the eye sockets and cheek bones to give them a sunken in appearance.

If you want your zombie to look even more realistic you can buy special effects appliances such as the "Creature" set from Scream Team. This great makeup appliance shown in the very top picture on the right, is perfect for creating the accentuated facial look of the living dead.

Homemade Zombie Costumes
If you can't or don't want to buy an off-the-shelf zombie costume the next best thing is to take a trip to your local thrift shop. They are usually filled with all sorts of old clothes at a low price. Once you have clothes, you'll want to distress them to make them look old and deteriorated.

Zombie Costumes - Off The Shelf
Below are some of the better zombie costumes we've found
.

Complete Zombie Costume
Includes: Pants with attached zombie thigh and knee bones, shirt with attached rotted flesh chest and two skeletal forearms, zombie mask with stringy hair, and two skeletal gloves.

Zombie Cheerleader Costume
Isn't she just the cutest thing? Even after she died, she still wants to cheer but now it will be for "More Brains!" This cute costume,  right, includes printed "Zombie U" cheerleader dress with pom poms and wig.

You do the zombie makeup yourself by using a gray grease paint for the face, giving the eyes a hollow look and adding some blood here and there. You can add latex pieces for an open skin look. Rah!

Zombie Accessories
A set of fake novelty teeth such as the "Phantom" teeth from Tooth Fairy Teeth look disgustingly wonderful. A fake severed limb, such as a bloody arm or leg to carry around with you is always a nice touch.

If you really want to go all out you can buy a set of zombie special effect contact lenses from FxEyes. Custom contact lenses can be a great addition to your costume, but they are still a medical appliance and need to be treated as such.

Since you need to see an eye care professional to have a lens fitting exam, ask them to instruct you on the proper care and handling of contact lenses.
