Zombie Themed Party

Updated on January 14, 2016

How to Throw a Zombie Party

A zombie themed party can be the ultimate party theme, whether for a birthday, Halloween, a stag night or just a fun party.

This theme is perfect for a Sunday party after you have been to several parties over the weekend. This is the only party where you do not need to look fresh and pretty. You are supposed to be dead, therefore stiff in the joints and with your flesh saggy and pasty. So you will be perfect even if you have a two day hangover!

Zombies can be sexy too!!!

Zombie Dress Code or How to Dress Your Un-dead Body:

Everybody must play the game and be dressed as a zombie. There are several zombie models to choose from:

1) The green zombie, think Herman Munster.

2) The sexy zombie, think pin-up girl converted to zombie. For this look you can choose your favourite dead movie star and bring her back from the dead. You can dress sexy and just add a few zombie touches like a “zombie bite” on your head or stomach or you can buy a sexy zombie costume like the black dress with white polka dots I got from Halloween Costumes (photo on the right) a traditional 50’s style dress with a shredded appearance, spattered with blood stains with a bloody petticoat included.

3) The rotting zombie. A bit more complex to achieve, you will need lots of disgusting accessories like guts, worms, pus oozing from your wounds and a good dose of bad smell that you can achieve dipping your clothes on food and leaving it to dry in the sun.

4) The ready made zombie costume, the easiest option as you can find a broad option of zombie costumes for all sizes and prices for sale. I would personally recommend as they deliver worldwide and offer an excellent rapport/quality price which means that unlike most Halloween costumes on the market you can wear these ones again and again at different parties. Halloween costumes have everything you will need for a zombie party; from zombie costumes to zombie decorations and props like zombie intestines, body parts purses, bloody cleavers, make up kits, theatrical blood and masks.

Zombie Party Decorations

I like zombie parties as they require little decoration. I don’t even need to worry about having a spotless house before the party!

Scare your guests before they have even entered your house. There are some ready made decorations that you can add to your garden like tombstones or the un-dead body coming off the ground that you can buy from Amazon. A fog machine is also very effective to create ambiance.

Inside the house, more important than decoration is the scene setting. Dim the lights, use candle lights wherever possible and low voltage lights for the rest of the house.

You can use online gravestone generators to print gravestones and attach them to your front door, windows or mirrors. It is also a good idea to stick zombie faces into your mirrors.

If you have a big TV screen, leave it on all night silently playing zombie films.

Add ambiance noise to small rooms like the toilet or bathroom. You will only need a small CD player with a scary soundtrack. I would choose the Resident Evil main theme by Marilyn Manson. Just hide your CD player so the guests don’t see it and keep the sound going all night long.

The drinks:

There is no better cocktail for a zombie themed party than a zombie cocktail. Not only does the name go with your theme, but the effect of the cocktail will transform your guests into zombies.

The food:

Zombie food is one of the easiest ones to get. Just call for a take away and eat the delivery boy !!!

Seriously, if you don’t feel like eating the delivery boy, you can always offer a buffet of cold meats to your guests. Add “fresh flesh” signs pointing to the buffet table. Some meats that you can use for fresh flesh are long cuts of hams, smoked fish, roast beef (French style, slightly bloody) and even beef tartare (raw marinated beef).  If you are adventurous you might also like to try some haggis!

For a sweet table you can have trays of jelly brains, strawberry ice-cream, bowls of raspberry coulis and strawberry soup.

Marilyn Manson - Sweet Dreams

The music:

Marilyn Manson is great for these type of bashes.  Remember zombies don’t dance the conga! Choose zombie themed music; songs that you can dance at a zombie pace.

      zombie themed party. I love it. I always thought almost any movie could be improved with the addition of a couple of zombies, now any part can be improved as well. Thanks for the hub, I gave it a thumbs up.

      Great hub - very original! and your right - everyone would have to participate in the dressup in order for the party to be successful.

      I have never heard of a Christmas in May celebration either, but maybe these ladies were mistaken. I really hope they were because that seems a little over the top. A Bikini part for Christmas in May might make an interesting hub though :)

      SweetiePie: Xmas in May? wow, first time I hear that. I'll need to go to LA to wear my Santa bikini in May LOL

      Guardian: I like dressing up and I cann't wait until halloween for it. Other similar parties we've had (outside hallowwen and carnival) were a Pirate party and a James Bond party, both of them great fun!!

      12 years ago

      Oh, that looks like so much fun. I'm a big fan of halloween, but I see no reason why this kind of party can't be done year round. Great idea. dressing up and getting all messy is so fun.

      12 years ago from Southern California, USA


      That sounds more original than those Christmas in July celebrations. Now I hear a train in LA is having a Christmas in May celebration, and I am thinking what the heck? Can we not just wait until Christmas lol.

      SweetiePie: yes, this is a popular theme for Haloween but I like the "twist" of having it unexpectedly maybe in mid July, I like to see the look in my neighbours :)

      abinavis :Very young children get scared with this and it is better to keep them away; but older children who have grown up killing zombies in their video games find it really cool.

      Maybe sometime we need something different party. Zombie theme party is unique and good idea. But I don't know whether I will join that. Do not allow the kids to join otherwise they can't sleep well.

      All very life like zoombies, or at least good make-up. This one should be popular around Halloween.

      fortunerep: yes Marilyn Manson is just perfect, who could be more original than him?

      Like he said: "The burden of originality is one that most people don't want to accept. They'd rather sit in front of the TV and let that tell them what they're supposed to like, what they're supposed to buy, and what they're supposed to laugh at. "

      Can you be a vegetarian Zombie and walk around moaning " Graiiins" ?

      That's the point Brian, to make the most of the bags under your eyes and your wrinkled clothes, and the "fresh flesh" is also great protein food to cure a hangover :)

      I think this is a great idea for a party and if you schedule for the day after someone elses party most people wouldn't even need to dress up for it.

      Whoops just read a few of the other comments, seems like some of us have had the same thought.

      Dottie1: It's a great theme for an after party week better than a Bloody Mary for a hangover :)

      badcompany99 : I think we could arrange for a Pirate party, instead of zombies. I have just ordered my costume on Amazon and I'll be needing a place to wear it.

      prasetio30 : scary and beautiful can make a good party :)

      charanjeet kaur : I love extreme parties, the weirder the better. There is something very exciting about the unexpected and the scary. Besides, like I mentioned, this is a great theme after you had a few parties during the week. Where else would your natural pasty complexion and bags under the eyes would be appreciated as sexy?
