To create a zombie costume, tear up some old clothes. Give yourself pale skin and fake wounds with makeup, latex and fake blood.
- Create the costume
Cut and rip old clothes from your closet, or buy an outfit from a thrift store. Consider a themed zombie costume, such as a zombie bride in a wedding dress or a tourist zombie in shorts and a Hawaiian shirt. To look like you just stepped out of a grave, smear dirt or ashes over the clothes. For another distressed finish, run over the clothes with your car. For bloody clothing, spray a mixture of water and red food coloring onto your costume.
- Add the makeup
Start with a pale face by applying white makeup. Add dark circles around your eyes with green and brown eye shadow. For wounds and scabs, use latex wounds found in a Halloween or costume store, or create your own wounds from liquid latex. Do not forget to apply some fake blood on the face.
- Decorate your hair
Make your hair as messy as possible. Tease it with a comb. Add some debris such as twigs and leaves. You can also add some fake blood and give yourself a fake head wound.
