Zombie Halloween Costume Ideas

Zombie Halloween costumes are the most entertaining and intriguing to make. There are so many ways in which zombies can appear that it is not necessary to adhere to a specific costume formula. All you need to keep in mind is that zombies are walking corpses, and they must appear recently deceased.

This indicates that you wish to have a great deal of fun coloring your skin green or brown. But most essential, you should have blood-stained clothing and possibly blood oozing from your body. Obviously, you will purchase fake blood from a retail outlet or novelty store. If you want to be particularly inventive but have limited means, you can substitute ketchup for blood.


You must first decide what type of zombie you wish to be. Are you a businessman who has become a zombie? Consider a cheerleader. Begin with clothing resembling that of a person who was killed and later transformed into a zombie. You would wear a suit and tie, dress shirt, khakis, and/or dress pants if you were a businessperson. If you are a cheerleader, you would wear a short skirt whose colors match those of a specific school. Whichever dress you choose, ensure that you will never want to wear it again since you are about to ruin it.

If you wish to show how the zombie was initially slain, you might draw wounds on the clothing to imitate stabbings or gunshots using fake blood. If you have any attachments, such as imitation knives, that can be protruded from your body, that would be much better. Otherwise, simply squirt a large amount of fake blood on various parts of the outfit. Make a few tears in the fabric of the outfit so that it appears more frightening.

Basic Makeup

The cosmetics will be the most crucial component. If your face does not resemble a zombie’s visage, it does not matter how much blood is on your clothing. Therefore, you should either get a zombie makeup kit or gather white face paint, eyeshadow, eyeliner, and black lipstick. These are the makeup essentials for creating a terrifying zombie look. The final product should have a pale white face with black eye sockets, black eye outlines, and black lips. Adding blood makeup to some regions of the face is also acceptable.

Advanced Cosmetics

You currently have a basic zombie appearance consisting of bloodstained clothing and a zombie’s visage. You can add contact lenses, prosthetics, and/or fake teeth to your zombie costume if you wish to take it to the next level. The most advanced will be the contact lenses, which will transform your eyes into those of a zombie. You can get lenses that will make your pupils appear green, yellow, black, or any other desired color. These contact lenses are a requirement for any full-body zombie costume. They are available online at a variety of Halloween retailers.

Fake teeth and prosthetics can be acquired anywhere, although the best ones must be obtained at a Halloween store. Some of the available prostheses can simulate the appearance of stitched skin, facial abnormalities, scars, open wounds, and hanging skin. As for the teeth, you can either use teeth makeup or completely cover your natural teeth with false ones. The false teeth will appear green, decayed, and sometimes even bloody! Simply use your imagination and enjoy yourself.
