You might think this is really me but it's not, so don't feel sorry for me. I'm really a normal kid. With a not so normal passion for scary things. If you wanna be gross, disgusting, scary, or just downright weird, come see me. Or, check our my instructable for my hopefully prize winning zipper face.

Step 1: Step 1: Gather Spooky Materials

The Scary Stuff:
  1. Zipper (duh) Got this from Walmart
  2. Spirit Gum- Also from Walmart
  3. Liquid Latex- Walmart
  4. Cream Paints- Walmart
  5. Concealer (or foundation)- The morgue
  6. Powder- Swept it out from under the bed
  7. Bronzer- The sun


  1. Cotton Balls- Bathroom
  2. Sponges- Bathroom
  3. Brushes- The witch doctor

Step 2: The Zipper...

No, my face did not come with a zipper attached!!!!!

Any zipper will do. I bought a pack of them from Walmart for about a dollar.

I use spirit gum to glue it to my face. It's pretty easy, just put the glue on your face, wait for it to get tacky, and press the zipper firmly to your face.

After the zipper is pressed into place, then sponge on some liquid latex to the edges to keep the zipper down.

Then use a super scary blow dryer to dry it down. You'll know it's dry when the glue is clear.

Step 3: Blending the Zipper Into Your Skin

AHHHHHHHHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh sorry. I scared myself.

Use concealer to blend the zipper into your face. It kind of hides the rough edges of the zipper.

Using a powder, set the concealer into place. Then apply a bronzer for that extra look of death.


Step 4: Adding the Color

Caution: This step may cause nightmares.

Start with a pinkish reddish color. Apply that to the inside of the zipper. To give it more depth, and a more realistic look, build up colors with different shades of red and purple.

Step 5: It's Blood Time...whoaaaaaaaaaaa

A little fake blood goes a long way....real blood will go even farther. If you have a source for real blood, then maybe you have a problem. BOO!!!!!

Using a stippling sponge, apply some different color fake bloods to the area around the zipper and inside of the zipper. Don't apply too much or it will ruin the effect.

Step 6: Go Out and Have Fun!

The looks you get are worth the effort. I hope you liked my instructable, thank you for looking!

Very nice. Could you add a picture of how you finished the bottom side of your chin.

Thank you! For the chin, I just blended the paint down the neck and let it taper into the color of my natural skin!
