Plus Size Zombie Costumes

Updated on September 22, 2014

Zombies Come in All Sizes

With the Walking Dead bringing zombies back into fashion it is no wonder people are looking for plus size zombie costumes (like the one at right from Buy Costumes). There are definitely some commercial options available but you can use your creative talents too with some custom make-up and old clothes from your closet or second hand store.

This lens will show you a few store options to choose from as well as giving you some ideas on creating your own.

Sizing Information

Reading the sizing information at each shop before you start shopping is critical for finding a costume that fits; as is reading each costumes individual sizing information. Some costumes listed as "plus size" may only fit a person size 14 to 18. Read the measurements. Pick costumes with more than one size option i.e. 1x, 2x, 3x etc. to get a better fit.

Zombie Make-Up Tutorials

YouTube is an excellent resource for how-to videos, unfortunately you have to weed through hundreds of videos. I have done some weeding for you. Here are ten of my favorite Zombie Make-Up tutorials, that I think the average person could really do, to get you well on your way to being zombified. Some are are just for inspiration while others give specific instructions.

"Every dead body that is not exterminated becomes one of them. It gets up and kills. The people it kills get up and kill."
