I decided to be a zombie this year for Halloween. I went to party city and found a zombie bride costume that I really liked but it ran super small and it was itchy. Additionally, the costume was $50. I decided to go to a thrift store and pick up a white dress and zombify it. This was achieved by staining a white dress, tearing it, and covering it in blood. This was super easy to make and cost less than $15. I was really happy with the results and I hope everyone enjoys this instructable!

Step 1: Materials

You will need a long white dress. I bought mine at Goodwill for $8. Additionally, you will need tea bags, boiling water, and a paint brush to dye the dress. You will also need scissors,  an x-acto knife, your hands or whatever. Anything that you can use to tear the dress will work. The last thing you need is red paint. The amount needed will vary greatly depending on how bloody you want the outfit to be.

Your pretty
