Zombie Shirt (T Shirt Hacks Contest)





Introduction: Zombie Shirt (T Shirt Hacks Contest)

This shirt is fun to make and makes a great addition to a zombie costume. All you need are some matches, a little dirt (not as dry as dust but not mud either), red food dye, and a shirt.

Step 1: Burning the Shirt

In this step, you will burn the edges of the shirt. Dont burn all the way around though because the shirt will fall into 2 peices. Also, dont let the fire get to big because it is hard to stop. I had to run to the sink numerous times. I suggest staying near the sink. You can also take a match a just press it into the shirt and a hole will form. BE CAREFUL, THIS IS FIRE!!! Instructables and I are NOT liable for any injuries you sustain or damage to property you cause.

Step 2: Dirt on the Shirt

Now just take a little bit of dirt and rub it into the shirt as shown in the picture. Next, shake off the extra dirt on the shirt. This gives it a nice touch if you do it correctly.

Step 3: Blood on the Shirt

In this step we will add some fake blood to make this a little more realistic. just get a spoon and pour some red food coloring into it. Now just spill it onto the shirt! Here is also a picture of the finished product.

Pokey dotts?

hehe, a clown more like?

Red polka dots on the shirt... I know it's blood, but looks funny. You should have just made a big drip stain from the front of the collar.

ah, that makes more sense than pokey dotts, lol, but youre right

may I suggest a mist bottle, and spray the shirt make it look like you took a bite out of the jugular and blood sprays everywhere... thanks though, cause this gives me more of an insight of what I am going to do with my zombie costume.

just take a buket of fake blood and throw it at the shirt

I have to suggest using spatter swing techniques with the "blood" to add a really cool natural effect.

Turns out awesome, and the blood looks less like pepperonis.

Thanks for the ideas. I will have to do that sometime but at the current moment i am out of food coloring. Thanks again though.

By the way, Hand printing the shirt with the blood near the shoulders and general throat area once or twice gives the impression that you've encountered and succumb and few juicy and struggling victims that made an attempt to hold you off in their final moments of the attack!
