    Default Zombie make-up

    Hi all,

    Hubby and I are signed up for our first Zombie Crawl for Oct. We would really like to do it right. Does anyone know of some really good make-up or things we could use to make our outfits stand out? We are going as Mormon Missionaries.

    Zombie makeup is cheap, easy and looks amazing. Just need some white, black, blue and green facepaint and some liquid latex, the stuff is amazing for ripped or torn skin. You can even use toilet paper to make it look like skin gouges. I did this one year with everything I just stated. Heres a pic.

    My husband was a zombie two years ago and was a smashing success, primarily due to his makeup. I watched and followed this YouTube video:

    It was so easy to follow and the results were great. I did order the specific makeup recommended in the video - it was definitely worth the few extra dollars for a very high-quality. One final word of advice - practice once before your big event!

    If you want to go the prosthetic route, have a look at the zombies available on our website.

    wow, love the make up tips. Ty.

    Instand Monsters: love the zombie 2 mask. I saw the vid and was curious. Did the person cut the mask to get the jaw to move or is it that elastic? What do you use to keep it on the face? What is used to build up around the eyes to make it look like your face instead of a mask or is it just really good glue?

    No cutting required, foam latex is very elastic. It moves with your face, letting your expressions show.

    You can use Spirit Gum from any costume shop, or ProsAide adhesive (that's the one we use, we hope to have it available on our site soon).

    The edges of the prosthetic are tissue thin, letting you blend it into your skin pretty easily. We have a series of free application videos on our website that show the process.

    We can also do the prosthetics pre-painted, so all you would need to do is glue it on and apply some makeup on your skin around it.

    Special effects contact lenses will also help to make any zombie makeup pop. There are a lot of sites that sell them, shop around a bit and you're sure to find a good deal. Just be aware that generic lenses can hurt your eyes if you're not careful. The higher-end ones require your eye measurements from a optometrist.

    This is hubby and I at last year's ZPC in Minneapolis. I didn't go out and buy any fancy make up kits. I went to Walgreens, lol. I bought cheap make up in grays and dark purples. I had one "bruising" make up kit leftover from another year so I used some of that. I put on a really pale foundation and used some white powder I got at a costume shop when I was Marie Antoinette. I used some dark red, yellow and green paint from the make up kit to create some bruises. Purple and grays under the eyes. I put concealer on my lips to make them look pale. Its all about shading, shading, shading. 2 years ago I did the liquid latex to give myself some zombie bites on my cheeks but it was a pain to get off so I just went with more bruising last year. And I found fake spray blood at Michael's - loved it. It gave a way better effect to my costume.

    I am going to the Mpls/St.Paul crawl this year too. You should make one of those "I'm A Mormon" commercials when you are dressed as Zombies. That would be pretty funny.
