DIY Zombie Halloween Costumes
Halloween is quickly approaching, and what better way to get into the spooky spirit than by dressing up as a zombie? Zombies have been a popular Halloween costume for years, and there’s nothing quite as satisfying as putting together your own DIY zombie costume.
Creating a zombie costume is fun and easy, and you can use items that you most likely already have in your wardrobe or around the house. In this article, we’ll show you how to put together a DIY zombie costume that will terrify your friends and neighbors.
To create your zombie costume, you’ll need:
- Old clothes
- Needle and thread
Step 1: Tear Up Your Clothes
To create a zombie look, your clothes need to look like they’ve been through the apocalypse. Use scissors to cut holes in your shirt and pants, and tear the fabric to create a raggedy appearance. You want your clothes to look dirty and tattered.
Step 2: Add detail with blood and makeup
After you’ve torn up your clothes, it’s time to add some blood and makeup to complete your zombie look. Use white makeup to create a pale complexion, and darken the circles around your eyes using black makeup. Then, add a few wounds and scars with fake blood. You can also use makeup to create fake bruises and bruises that really make you look like you’ve seen some horrible things.
Step 3: Accessorize!
Last but not least, it’s time to add some accessories to your zombie look. You can add a wig with messy, tangled hair, and some zombie teeth or fake skulls, depending on your preference.
You can also add fake gore to your costume. Take some of shredded cloth from the clothes you’ve torn up and shape it into a gory-looking wound. Attach it to your costume with some thread.
Creating your own DIY zombie costume is a fun and creative way to get into the spooky spirit of Halloween. With these simple steps, you’ll be able to create a terrifying zombie look that will wow your friends and family. Happy Halloween!
