Zombie Costumes for Girls
Day of the Dead. Night of the Dead. The Walking Dead. Monster High. We’ve always had this incredible fascination with Zombies. That has exploded in recent years and it seems that Zombies are everywhere. Dressing up as a Zombie for Halloween is incredible fun because there are no limits. Anything and everything can become a Zombie. These costumes are a great choice for Halloween festivities because they’re so simple to DIY.
Zombies all have one thing in common: none of them have ever been pretty. When it comes to creating a Zombie makeup look, the nastier the better. If you want to keep things simple, use a plain white greasepaint base on your face and neck. Shade that with some gray to create sunken eyes and cheeks. Eye sockets can be further shaded in green, blue, red, and purple. Remember, you want to look dead. Paint lips white or at the very least pale gray. Add some blotches of fake blood around the mouth and chin.Check Price on Amazon
Want to go all out Undead and take it the next level? Saturate pieces of tissue (like Kleenex) with Vaseline. Mold this to create wound or scar shapes on your face. Dab the wounds and scars with some fake blood. The damp Kleenex will look like torn skin. The shiny Vaseline will look like your wounds are open and running. Even as the Kleenex dries a bit, it will look like skin is peeling off. Gross. Best of all, this will be easy to remove when the time comes. You will also find fake scars and wounds at dollar stores, Halloween costume shops, and online. Hold these on with Spirit Gum and blend with Scar Wax.
Walking Dead Zombie Girl
You can’t go wrong with this simple Walking Dead Zombie costume. Use clothing that you know won’t ever get worn again. You’ll be giving them a little character with grease stains, grass stains, dirt, and some rips and tears. Start any tears in the fabric with a pair of scissors then finish with your hands. They will look more random and realistic using this method. Next, you’re going to want to give the clothing some killer color. Using craft paint or powered fabric dye, create streaks and blobs of color. Use shades of red, green, black, gray, and green. You can also mix Vaseline with fake blood and smear that on the fabric. Green or yellow gel food coloring mixed with the Vaseline will work as well to look like grave ooze. Saturate hair with some hard holding gel or mousse, and mess it up as much as possible. Blend in gray or white temporary hair color to make it look like grave dust.Check Price on Amazon

A pair of matching leggings can be worn underneath the skirt for extra warmth and coverage. Footwear will be a simple pair of sneakers paired with some ankle socks.
