Become a Zombie on the Cheap!

become a zombie


If you’re a fan, you’ll already know that the new series of Walking Dead hits our screens soon. In honour of perhaps the best zombie series ever made, here is our guide to becoming a zombie on the cheap… and without the nasty, biting part.

The first thing to think about is your outfit.  Will you be a zombie nurse, a zombie chimp, maybe even a zombie penguin?  Whatever you’re going for, the important thing to remember is that it needs to be ripped, dirty and probably spattered with blood and/or brains. Zombies are not careful eaters.

You don’t need to buy a costume; you can just wear old clothes and mess them up a bit with some strategic tearing and smearing. Super cheap and easy to do.

Next is the make up. We love this tutorial for Walking Dead zombie because you don’t need loads of professional special effect make up, just standard make up and fake blood. And really, who doesn’t have fake blood hanging around the house any way…


The final, very important point, is to perfect the walk. Often the first giveaway that the person heading towards you is a zombie is the way they are walking. Here’s a good tutorial for how to walk like a zombie. If you can’t be doing with all that reading, here’s a handy video:

And finally, the most important part of becoming a zombie… BRAINS! No normal food for you; zombies do not have a varied diet. Don’t worry though; we’ve found this fantastic tutorial for making brains. Perfect!


Enjoy the return of the Walking Dead… and your brains! Nom…
