Bloody Decaying Zombie

Since the whole craze with the Walking Dead began, we wanted to join in the fun and make our version of a zombie costume.

My husband is a theater teacher so he had the acting down pretty good. This made the whole costume come to life.

I was going for a fresh out of the grave look, so I began with a theft store suit, white shirt, neck tie and brown dress shoes.

I then began to tear and cut out pieces from the suit and shirt. I added fake blood and red paint to those tattered and torn areas.

To add more detail, I added moss to emphasize that the zombie just came from the grave and I also added creepy cloth to some areas of the suit.

I used a plastic bone and cut it in half to construct a spine, shoulder bone, knee bone and shin. This really made the costume come together.

The last details were a red rose on the lapel, zombie glove, zombie mask and face paint.

This decaying zombie costume was a big hit and the kids and adults were all pretty terrified by it.
