Scariest Zombie nightmare EVER!




I have to say, I look pretty darn gross for a zombie. I had to warn my friends as they arrived for my Halloween party so they would not be scared out of their skins. I actually had no costume makeup so I ended up creating colors by taking an unused foundation and mixing in powder shavings from unused eyeshadows. Thankfully, I had a true red eyeshadow to make the bloody color. I applied the makeup by using a loofah-like bath sponge. This mixing thing worked great since I didn't have to worry about sticky, waxy costume makeup on my face all night.

The thrift store I went to had no wedding dresses so I ended up buying this awesome blue dress and being a Prom Zombie. I made the sash by going to Joanne's Craft and Fabric Store and picking up a spool of wide white ribbon. At first, I wrote the letters on the sash with red marker but it didn't look scary enough so I traced the letters with red lipstick then lightly rubbed lipstick into the ribbon to create a smeared blood look. It turned out great!

The next night, I went more sexy and pretty. My false eyelashes were from Makeup Forever (109 Janet- dense black). They were fun but actually felt heavy- whatta workout for my lids! I worked on all my friend's eye makeup. But best part- they all are wearing MAC's Viva Glam V lipstick! And it looked so different on each of them- thanks Christie for the lippie!

It was fab Halloween. Can't wait for next year. What was your costume? Send me pics to post!

@Minna- Yeah, pretty scary zombie huh? I was even scared to look at myself in the mirror. What's more funny, I posed scary in all my photos that night. Too silly. And the dress was so perfect- it fit me to a tee.
