Zombie Bride and Groom
|Costume type:||Costumes for Couples|
This homemade costume for couples entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Erica, the ''Til Death Do Us Part' costume creator:
My fiance and I are always getting asked when we are going to get married, so that's where the zombie bride and groom idea came from. The makeup was inspired by The Walking Dead tv show. I am the bride, and I did all the makeup- my makeup took 3+ hours and his took around 1.5 hours. To get the "ripped off mouth" look and the wounds, I used liquid latex and toilet paper. For the gory effects I used Ben Nye blood and makeup products from a theatrical shop, a color wheel with black/purple/red/dark yellow from Party City (for bruises), and white cream face paint mixed with light colored CoverGirl liquid foundation. I used a red lip liner and white eyeliner to draw the exposed zombie teeth onto my lips (had to carefully drink from a straw all night). I'm wearing a wig from a theatrical shop, fishnets that I cut up, and a "zombie bride" dress I found on sale at Party City. Groom is in his own old suit we destroyed. We wiped stage blood all over our clothes and hands. The contacts were purchased online (mine are prescription, his aren't). This costume was definitely worth the effort because we couldn't walk 2 feet all night without someone stopping us for a picture, wanting to touch my face, or telling us how amazing our costumes were (and how realistic, which is what I was going for)! Thanks to everyone that votes!
