If you're looking for a Halloween costume that you can easily prepare at home, then plan to dress as a zombie. With the right make-up and clothing combination, you can be either a scary zombie or a funny member of the undead. Remember, zombies lose their higher functioning capabilities, so incorporate good growls and a sluggish walk in order to make your costume seem authentic.

- Fake blood
Tear your T-shirt. A zombie won't be walking around in a perfect, clean T-shirt. Study the shirt and determine where you'd like to tear the fabric. Pick locations that won't overexpose you and that will be comfortable.
Use scissors to cut into the fabric as the shirt can't be easily torn. Scissors can widen the tears and help to create a frayed effect on the shirt. Don't over-cut and be sure that the slices in the clothing aren't too perfect.
Place fake blood in strategic locations on your T-shirt. Because fake blood has a tendency to dry lighter on fabric, you will need to apply several coats of blood in order to achieve a more realistic colour.
Rub dirt on your shirt so that it will have a more stained appearance. Zombies will be rough as they hunt their prey, so you need to make the shirt look as if it has been through many encounters. You can also push the T-shirt against grass in order to add grass stains to the material.
Check the back of the shirt to make sure that you have cut and stained that surface, too. Don't just focus on the front of the shirt because the back should reflect the hard times that zombies also encounter.
