Choosing Your Zombie Party Theme

Step One: Choosing your Zombie Party Theme

Deciding whether you want your Zombies to be gory and gruesome or cute and goofy will set the tone for your whole party. You can also opt to throw a Zombie Hunter Party, where your guest will come as zombie hunters, armed to the teeth and ready for battle.

1. Gory and Gruesome Zombie Party: Perfect for adults and teenagers, especially those particularly serious about the Zombie Apocalypse. Decorations will focus on realistic and lifelike zombies, lots of blood and peeling zombie skin and dark themes. Guests are encouraged to create the most realistic zombie costume, complete with blood, gore and missing limbs. Reward the best costumes with lots of brains.

2. Cute and Goofy Zombie Party This party is more suited to younger children and those not into the terrifying and gory theme. Guests are encouraged to come in their most creative Zombie Costume, like Snow White Zombie or Lady Gaga Zombie, or Power Rangers Zombies.

3. Zombie Hunter Party This theme is great for any age group and can be used as a Zombie Preparedness Drill. Guest are encouraged to come in their most resourceful Zombie Hunter gear, armed to the teeth (with waterguns, nerf guns and/or paintball guns) and prepared for survival.
