I had planned on being a zombie this year for Halloween ever since watching Resident Evil 3 and becoming obsessed with zombies in general. However, the Monday before Halloween, I was caught off guard, for I thought Halloween was the following week. So I hurriedly made my zombie costume in 90 minutes, but it still turned out pretty well. As I take my inspiration from Resident Evil, my zombies are not the dirty type that come out of the grave, but instead are bloody victims of some zombie virus and are ripped up from struggle with other humans.
P.S. I apologize that this came on after Halloween of 2007 was over. As I said, I only remembered Halloween was coming up on the 29th, I got my coat on the 30th, spent 30 minutes in the afternoon of the 30th, and woke up at 5 AM on the 31st to do the blood. However, do have fun next Halloween.
Step 1: Clothing
For clothing, I'd suggest some lighter color such as grey, white, khaki, etc.
In my case, I wanted to be a zombified researcher so I chose a white button up, some white slacks, a belt, a tie, and a lab coat. My tutorial will be using these articles of clothing.
