The Cute Zombie Girl Style Guide

Updated on October 17, 2013

How to be Dead Gorgeous -- Tips for Zombie Girls

When you want to be both dead AND cute, whether for Halloween or your Zombie Prom, I've got a few tips and tricks for dead zombie girls everywhere.

Oh yes, you see being dead and decomposing doesn't mean you have to be revolting. One of those zombie masks with eyeballs sliding down your face is good for a giggle if you are a kid, but when you've got a hot date (dead or alive?) a girl needs to go to a little more effort. How else will you convince him to leave his brains at the door (yummy!) and follow you into the cursed realm of the living dead?

But do not worry your pretty little head full of brainssss, my dears. I ventured out one wild and spooky night to interview a few of the cutest dead girls I could find in the local graveyard. I'm not telling what I had to do to get them to spill their beauty secrets... it's enough to say I picked up a few tips on how to be dead gorgeous... or is that gorgeous dead?

Either way, keep reading to find out how I'm going to be a cute zombie girl this year... and how you can be too!

Your Zombie Dress

1. Cute zombie girls dress to kill

Get the filthy gorgeous look here!

Zombies tend to look like they have been through a hedge backwards. Come to think of it, that's because they probably have.

Think about it. Your average zombie girl has spent days or weeks... even years... being dead. Now she is ready to party. But the best boutiques in town don't open their doors to zombies so she will have to make do with the dress she was buried in. It might have a hole or two or be ragged around the edges, but what do you expect after clambering out of a tomb and staggering around the graveyard?

That's why I love the Zombie prom dress featured below. It's so glam but at the same time unmistakably zombified.

This is THE dress for cute zombie girls to be seen in this year.

The Zombie Prom Queen Adult Costume is of course perfect for a zombie prom but just as stylish for Halloween. You can wear it with or without the 'Zombie Prom Queen' sash that comes with it.

You also get that cute tiara and the gorgeous zombie glovelettes. The prom dress itself has a wonderfully tattered skirt and a fitted bodice.

Simply add your own shoes and corsage, plus jewelry.

Zombie prom dress available in 4/6, 8/10, and 12/14 ladies sizes.

Your Zombie Accessories

2. Dead girls know how to accessorize

Death becomes her....

OK, you've got your gorgeous dress. Now for the rest of you.

A real zombie girl might go around barefoot.... probably with a few toes missing.... but we need to talk practical here.

Are you going to a party or out trick-or-treating? Personally, I love the big stompy footwear look for zombie girls. But if you want some murderous stilettos to match that dress, go for it!

Wear or carry some dead flowers. Aritificial black roses also work well.

Finally, remember some jewelry. Skulls are a good look for a girl who hangs out in graveyards.

These killer heels are just what every self-respecting zombie girl is wearing around town.

Red Blood Splatter Shoes are available in US size 7, 8, 9 and 10.

You can't beat blood red. After all, a hungry zombie is not going to be too careful about spills.

Cute platforms in black make a good alternative to red.

 

Sweet Dead Things - Zombie girls have style!

Just because you are a zombie doesn't mean you can't have some flowers and sparkle. Get a real diamond skull and crossbones pendant, or save a little with cubic zirconia.

A black feather rose is a stylish alternative to dead flowers and will last a lot longer.

Your Zombie Make Up

3. Dead zombie girls need to look...well...dead

Look lively and give yourself a makeover here!

Yes, I know you want to look cute but did you ever see a dead girl with a fresh complexion and roses in her cheeks? Didn't think so.

To be convincing as a dead girl you either have to: 1. be dead, or 2. give yourself a thorough makeover.

I suggest the second option. But hey, it's your funeral.

Luckily you are talking to the author of the How to be a Cute Dead Zombie Girl makeup tutorial here. I've got all the tips on how to look dead without looking repulsive, plus step-by-step illustrations. (That picture is copyright of me, by the way).

But for those of you who want a quick fix, let me share a dead girl makeup video right here. This is more a 'dead-girl lite' with those hollow eyes but a more normal skin color, so that you can stay glamorous. Don't say I'm not good to you.

Your Zombie Hairstyle

4. Cute dead girls have a bad hair day every day! - Got a hedge handy?

When it comes to your zombie hairdo... go wild!

You can spend an hour on your hair but when you are finished it has got to look like you just had the worst night of your life.

Use your own hair or wear a wig. Just make sure it is big and messy. Simple as that.

If you would like some ideas, this Halloween hair video tutorial is perfect for a zombie girl and would go great with the zombie prom dress.

    The "Killer Heels" are to die for. Not only would they look oh-so-fetching on a buxom zombie lass, they'd be terrific for a zombie huntress enjoying a night on the town. Those heels look to have brain-destroying potential in spades, and they'd look just as cute after being used as a weapon as before.

    This kind of lens is really great! I used to wear zombie dress before but I don't look like one. At least now, I can try to wear it again on halloween and follow the make up tips to look perfectly like zombie.

    Try putting some fake blood under your eye and limp. Also put some dirt that is clean on you.

    I don't think I'll dress up for Halloween this year but next time I do I want to be a zombie and will keep your lens in mind, and also *blessed* it.

    I have one of these lens too, but not as nice (goulish) as yours. My tip - white, black & red makeup to look like living dead with blood, gore & guts hanging from.......use your gory imagination... not a pretty girly sight!

    @KarenHC: Ah well, I think a lot of us are more the matronly zombie woman type, but hey we can still look 'dead gorgeous', right? :)

    Happy Halloween to you too!

    Well, I must surely admit that the TV show, "so you think you can dance" has had a couple of group zombie dance routines which I really love ... so I guess I should embrace the concept of morphing into a zombie?

    @anonymous: Exactly, it's bad enough being the living dead... or undead... or whatever zombies are. No need to be repulsive too, not when you can be a glam zombie. ;)
