What to Wear:

Finally! It really is a case of 'The messier the better" - this is one costume that your mum is REALLY going to hate...

  • The Look: Ripped, Shredded and torn, ragged edges and stained clothing
    Shred your clothes! A tear here and there is so simple to do, but will make all the difference to your Zombie costume. Complete the look with our White Stockings with Blood
  • Tips:
    1) You're probably not going to want (or be able!) to wear your Zombie costume again. So choose your clothes wisely! Your favourite LBD? Probably not a good option...

    2) Protect your modesty! Think carefully before you get scissor happy... One false move and you may find that you have become a Zombie Prostitute! (Ah, another great costume idea from Girly Nights Out!

    3) Layer up! Rip black fishnet tights, mis-matching bloody gloves and 'holey' jackets will all add to your gorey look.

How to be a Zombie!

It's all about the hair and make up when it comes to be a zombie! Here are the key items that you will need to look like death warmed up:

1) White face paint - Zombies are dead and there aint no fake bake in Hell! Get a deathly pale look with our white cream make up. It's the perfect base for Zombie Make Up. If you can't bare to go too white, try a grey shadow to create creepy, "mouldy" skin. You could even mix in a bit of our metallic silver face paint for an extra spooky effect.

2) Black Eye Shadow - With this look it's actually ok to have dark circles! Go heavy with your eye make up and ring your eyes for extra definition.

3) Fake Blood - We love our gel blood as it is easy to apply! Add as little or as much as you dare to get the look that you are after. A small 'trickle' of blood from the nostril or mouth will look really creepy...

4) Lipstick - Red Lipstick will make your mouth look blood stained but black lipstick looks extra ghoulish. Simply pick the colour that matches your look...

5) Contact Lenses - For an extra finishing touch, our creepy Halloween contact lenses will really freak everybody out.
