Step 1: Supplies

Zombie Clothes are just like human clothes with the added affect of suddenly being attacked that results in someone trying to eat your brain and tearing off your skin. So to make zombie clothes start with whatever you usually wear and zombify them. Get some clothes that you don't mind getting bloody and torn, you'll need some spray paint, scissors, and red fabric paint.

Step 2: Distress Your Clothes

Take your shirt and attack it with scissors.Distress the crap out of it do the same with the pants.

Step 3: Making Your Clothes Dirty

Take some gray and brown (dirty colored) spray paint and cover your outfit in filth.

Step 4: Make Your Clothes Bloody

Splatter some fake blood (fabric paint) all over- the shirt, pants, and tie too if you have one. Put hand prints and smear them over the clothes and even make some bite marks with pinking shears.

Watch the tutorial on how to make zombie makeup, practice some growls, and your outfit is complete!

    This seems way more hygienic. It makes the clothing be washable, plus you're really wearing 'clean' clothes.
