Gruesome Zombie Costume Accessories! - For those who gets a kick out of the morbid stuff:

Step One

The first thing in order to look like the undead, is to make your face look pale. Just get some white make up and apply it to your face.

Step Two

Find the shadows of your face and apply black make up to these parts. The eyes, and the creases in your forehead are good places. You can also wear black lipstick too. For a more realistic look, blend the black make up with the white make up to shade.

Step Three

Any exposed skin should be zombiefied like your face, or you'll look weird. So be sure to make up your neck, chest, arms, and hands.

Step Four

Have messy hair, don't comb it all day or mess your hair up yourself. All you have to do is pick up a several portions of your hair and comb it towards your scalp. It messes your hair instantly!

Step Five

Find some awful old looking clothes and tear them up in places if they're not already. Be sure not to make it obvious that you purposefully torn them though.

Step Six

Every zombie is going to need blood! You can make your own fake blood.

Step Seven

Drizzle fake blood on your torn clothes in places, but try to make it look natural.

Step Eight

Dip your hands in your fake blood and bloody your face with it, by eating the "blood" and don't be neat with it. Make it look like you just ate a hand or something. Maybe even get some "blood" in your hair!

I love the fork! lol

Step Nine

Roll around in the dirt or mud to get a fresh, just crawled out of your grave look. Make sure you get your hair and face dirty too!

Step Ten

Zombie contacts are available for those who want creepy eyes to add to their creepy costume!

Zombie Eyes!

Step Eleven

Add baby powder to your hair and clothes. Gives your hair a tired, old, grungy look. Just don't do it over the bathroom sink, it'll clog, trust me I know!

Step Twelve

Walk weird, walk like a zombie, but occasionally move quick to scare an unsuspecting soul. Just don't try to scare little kids; that's mean.

Step Thirteen

Every zombiefied person needs an accessory. So how about the cleaver to the head, scissors, or how about carrying around a fake leg or brain! Congratulations, you are now zombiefied! Have fun and be safe!

Are you going to be dressing up as a zombie this year?

      Good tips for anyone who wants to look like the living dead.

      I would love to do a zombie one year, but I'm always at work that night and if we dress up it has to be family friendly and not scary.
