Costumes of Zombies
I love costumes of Zombies! Especially during Halloween – there is no other costume that represents scariness, and horror better. The zombie is basically a human rotting into pieces, and the best zombie costumes will play this angle up as much as possible. Be prepared with torn clothing, face paint, and a gruesome broken walk to complete the outfit.
Here are some examples. For the face, you’ll want to zombify yourself by having hunks of flesh pealing off, exposing the raw muscle and blood underneath. The eyes should be rimmed in black, and the overall tonal color of the face should be a white color. It’s preferable if you also have teeth that are rotting. If you don’t have the makeup to do all of this individually, try using a zombie face kit to achieve the effect.
As far as the rest of the zombie costume, the key is to keep it real. Your costume should be what you would be wearing during the normal course of the day. Just a regular everyday outfit – the idea is that the person turned into a zombie instantly and without forethought. The longer the person has been a zombie the more frayed and torn and dirty the clothing should be. Be sure to mess up your hair. If your wearing a tie you want it somewhat askew.
Here are more examples of zombie costumes – note in each costume the key is to dress how you would as a human, then age your face, make your flesh fall off the bone, and shred your clothing…check out the pics below…
