These ridiculously real zombie costume ideas will give an edge of your friends on Halloween. And remember being a zombie is all about getting the makeup and expression right. Let me show you how.
Ridiculously Real Zombie Costume Ideas
You can make some fake blood with water, cornstarch, cocoa powder, and red food coloring. Now go crazy with this blood and splash your T-shirt or dress with it. No one will guess that these ridiculously real zombie costume ideas are make-believe. Here are some beautiful pictures from different cultures.
For a freakish one-eyed zombie look, put an eye patch to cover one up, and then hide the edges. Add some makeup and then use fake blood to make it look as if your eye has been ripped out. Go get them!
Zombies dig themselves out of a grave. So a zombie costume is never a fashion statement. Take an old T-shirt and some leggings or tight jeans and rip them up in a number of places. You can also smear some dirt or black eye makeup to make it look sleazier. Use Kohl and eyeshadow to draw some realistic wounds on your face and this will be one of the most ridiculously real zombie costume ideas you can get. Have a look at tribal artwork and culture.
Make yourself look like the stuff of nightmares with some messed up mouse nest hair, your clothes ripped strategically, and a lot of fake blood dripping from every spot you can find. You can wear some colored contact lenses for that dead look and most Halloween costume shops will have special makeup that you can use to get that pale zombie look.
Have you ever noticed a zombie’s fingernails? They are not pretty and manicured, let me tell you that. To get those nails, paint them a nude color, then draw a half circle in red or plum color nail polish near the cuticles. Use a makeup sponge to smear the dark color on the edges as well. Then use it to smear some nude color to smoothen any harsh lines. The messier the better!
Your facial makeup needs a special touch to look like a zombie. Let me teach you a trick. Use a popsicle stick to apply gelatin or liquid latex to your face for texture. Or use toilet tissue pieces covering them with a gelatin layer. Once it dries, you can use pale foundation and dark eye makeup. Don’t forget to make dark circles. For extra effect, use a toothpick to lift up the dried gelatin.
Use some pale foundation on your lips and then unevenly dab blood red lipstick to make it look as if your mouth is infected. Have some fake blood drip from your mouth to look scarier.
The Zombie Fashion
To make a T-shirt look like it is owned by a zombie, tear it up and use a razor for uneven edges. Soak it in tea or coffee overnight and then rub it on dirt once dry. Smear fake blood on it. Throw some cooked spaghetti or rice on it for those yucky maggots.
Pull apart some red wool fibers and paste them on your skin with latex. Adjust the shape with a needle and you will sport a nasty zombie bite.
