In reality - we didn't have the moola this year to dispense on Halloween *cry*, so I had to go the easy route. All we did was buy a suit at the thrift store and killed it! Added some makeup and we had an extremely cohesive zombification. Apparently, his co-workers were so scared of him that they made a rule of "announce yourself before you approach me." Hahah.
Proud points: New shredding technique and he was grey and bloody from head to toe. Love it!
Downers: He didn't want to wear contacts to work, nor have gross hands because...he had to work. haha.
Step 1: Tools of the Trade
A serrated kitchen knife/steak knife.
Fearlessness to wield that knife in scary and destructive ways.
Dark eyeshadow, liquid latex, toilet paper, fake blood.
Optional: Airbrush (I actually used cake decorating supplies LOL) to dirty the suit.
