My wife and I use latex and dryer sheets on the face to achieve the effects of the zombie, painted with makeup and fake blood
Step 1: Zombie
This is a home made zombie costume. I used latex and dryer sheets on my face, then painted with face paint, using eye shadow around my eyes.
I bought a suit at a Goodwill and ripped it, ran it over with my truck and put fake blood and spanish moss on it.
The scarecrow in the back of the one pic is from PVC pipe and expanding foam, painted with art paint
