We all know about the Zombie apocalypse that happens every year, usually around the 31st of October, on Halloween to be exact, and the big question you’ll have to ask yourself once you’ve asked yourself if this is your year to zombie or not to zombie, (which is obviously Go Zombie or Go Home) is what kind of Zombie should you be dressing up as this year? So I’ve very conveniently measured up the top 5 Zombie outfits to go for this year, and what exactly you should be doing with your clothes, make-up, eyes and so much more, because come on, let’s face it, if you really want to ‘zombify’ your outfit up to the next level of awesome this year, you have to be creative! Planning in advance is the way to go guys!
Before I start my countdown for the top 5 zombie outfits, let’s talk make-up, prosthetic transfers, tattoo transfers and crazy-ass zombie contact lenses! Make up is simple guys and gals, make sure you get yourself a ton of white powder, loads of black eye liner, a tube of fake blood and then take that next step by boosting your make-up skills to the next level with these super easy-to-apply and disgustingly awesome rotting zombie make-up transfers that will make your skin look as its been rotting for days! You could totally also get yourself some Zombie Contact lenses just to add some extra effect to your costume, plus it will scare the bats off of all the vampires out that night!
Let’s begin our zombie countdown!
5. The Office Lady Zombie
So if you work in an office, it most likely that you have an old suit hanging in your closet that can get donated to a thrift store soon, and if you don’t have one, why not head down to the thrift store and choose an old tattered suit that you can totally mess up, will some fake blood, rips and tears, and maybe just roll in the mud a little before heading out, giving it that final touch of zombie elegance! Stick to the make-up tip above, stop at Starbucks and grab a tall latte, freak out a few customers in the process and then head on out!
4. The Zombie Cowboy
Ok, so how easy is to grab a cowboy outfit off a shelf of pretty much any store over Halloween? Pretty much as easy as it is to buy Easter eggs over Easter right!? Well then get yourself a real sexy one, complete with Cowboy hat, tacky toy gun and then give it the zombie treatment! All you’ll need is all the make-up tips I’ve already given you, and maybe get yourself some fake gunshot wounds to apply to your forehead, giving your entire look a little bit more swagger!
3. Zombie Bride and Groom
Dum dum dadummm, here comes the bride all soaked in blood, here comes the groom all drenched in mud! OK, so let’s just face the facts ladies, you’re never going to wear your wedding dress again, and unless it cost you an arm and a leg and you’re saving it for your one day daughter, maybe you should give it the zombie treatment?! Otherwise head out to the thrift store and grab a cheap ass wedding dress, give it a couple of rips and splatter it in fake blood, plus you could get yourself a big fake knife to carry and put one of these gruesome cutthroat transfers on hubby, of course you’ll also need ‘normal’ zombie make-up! Perfect couples outfit, or you could go all out and have a clan of bridesmaid zombie and groomsmen too!
2. The Superhero Zombie
Another outfit that’s super easy to find in the costume stores over Halloween is all those very loved and adored superheroes you grew up falling in love with for their heroic acts! Well what would happen if one of them was bitten by a zombie? They transform into scary undead freaks who crave the taste of brains and blood! So get yourself a cheap superhero outfit, in fact the cheaper the better, so you don’t feel bad when it’s ruined with fake blood and guts! Warning, don’t do this outfit if your kid is a Spiderman fan….you might ruin him for life!
1. The Disney Princess Zombie
Oh I love this! All the ladies out there that get all prettied up and have their hair done up in Snow White and Ariel do’s! Stop! Rip that dress, and give is a generous splash of fake blood, because this year you’re going to be a zombie princess! There’s so much you can do with this, Cinderella, Jasmine, Pocahontas, don they all deserve to also have a shot at being zombies? I think so. So make sure you do all the right make-up and then ruin it with Zombie make-up and fake blood, you’ll look smashing, and you’ll be surprised how many of the boys will love it!
