Plants vs Zombies Costumes

Updated on October 1, 2014

Ideas for Plants vs Zombies Costumes

It's a game that's been popular for years and has inspired many Halloween costumes. You can be really creative and dress your family and friends up as undead zombies and garden foliage. However, there are a limited number of options for buying a pre-made costume, so you may have to be inventive and really do it yourself this year.

That said, if you are looking for a great Plants vs. Zombies costume, I hope you will like the ideas I've put together here. See how other people dressed up as Zombies, Sunflowers, and Peashooters! Figure out how to make your own costume, or buy a costume, mask, or make-up. Plants vs. Zombies video game characters make great costumes for babies, kids, and adults, during Halloween or any time of the year! If you're going to a party or trick-or-treating as a couple, one of you can be the Zombie and the other the Plant!

Buy a Plants Costume

Which plant will you be?

Putting together a Halloween costume based on the PopCap game
"Plants vs. Zombies" presents a few challenges because there are so
many different plants and zombies in this game. There are pea
shooting plants, sunflowers, plants that lob melons, chery bomb plants
and more.

Great costume idea for a baby's first or second Halloween. This comes in sizes Small (about 6 months) to large (2T). It would fit in nicely with a Plants vs. Zombies costume theme. And what a cute baby!!

I think if you were this costume and your friend were a Zombie costume, people would think you were from the Plants vs. Zombies game!

This is official Zombies vs. Plants merchandise. It's a great starting point for any child's zombie Halloween costume. To become bucket head zombie, just get a bucket that fits their head. To become cone head zombie, make an orange cone out of poster board or buy some real traffic cones.


Yes you can get a real traffic cone for your head

And I'm not the only one thinking about it. There is actually a question and answer on this page about whether children could use these as hats.


Zombie Head Mask - Similar to the zombie from the game - Scary Zombie Costume for Adults

Turn this generic Zombie into a Zombie from the game by wearing a brown coat and red tie. You could become a specific Zombie by adding a prop. Some ideas:

- Add an Orange cone to create a Conehead Zombie costume.

- Carry a Flag to be the Flag Zombie

- Wear an upside down bucker to be the Buckethead Zombie


Zombies Have Bad Teeth - A Great Costume is in the Details

Look closely at the Zombies in the video game, and you will see that their teeth have some issues.

Wear some bad teeth, put on some make-up or a mask, and done a prop or two... You could be a....

Flag Zombie, Conehead Zombie, Pole Vaulting Zombie, Buckethead Zombie,Newspaper Zombie, Screen Door Zombie, Football Zombie, Dancing Zombie, Ducky Tube Zombie..... Just to name a few!

      I haven't dressed up for Halloween in ages but I'm now tempted to be a zombie. I love Plants vs Zombies and also the show The Walking Dead, but the zombies on that show aren't as cute (if you can call a zombie cute?) as the ones in the game.
