My costumes for this year's Zombie Walk in Salem, OR. October 2018.
I was Miss Sogyny (If you don't get it try saying it out loud a few times. I was surprised how many people missed it.) The Dead pageant queen.
The blood and dirtyness is all acrylic paint, works great but have a drop cloth and a scrub brush ready. The textured wounds were made of tacky glue and toilet paper then painted with acrylic paint and cheap foundation, also works great but allow for plenty of drying time. The tangled hair, is not my hair, It's a headband with hair attached I got from the kids section at a dollar store, my hair is tucked safely back in a messy bun. I was pretty pleased it was convincing enough to fool my friends and fiancee. The crown, jewelry, flowers, sash, boa and bugs were also from the dollar store and touched up with paint. The sash was turned inside out and lettered. The dress was a backup mother of the bride dress for my mom that I just never got around to returning, it was bopping around in my backseat for over a year so it became the basis of my zombie in some kind of formal wear idea.
