Zombie Bride

Zombies are such trendy monsters these days, and there's been a report that said that the zombies brought so much money to the entertainment industry that it's unbelievable. Because of this, and because of many other factors it is no surprise to hear people they want to be zombies for Halloween – which right now, is around the corner. Let us help you become a zombie bride, be sure you'll be the main attraction at the party.

One has 2 options to turn herself into a zombie bride: either by buying a costume – maybe easier and less time consuming – either by transforming some old clothes in something that looks as if it's worn by zombies. We can't really show you any transformed dress, but you can have your own wedding dress – in case you're married – have it destroyed by hand – ripped, missing pieces, stained with ketchup, or fake blood, as well as with mud and then using appropriate makeup which can be used from the make-ups you own.

Over at buycostumes.com a dress for a zombie bride costs $70, but it is a short one – it falls above the knees. You'll receive the dress, the veil and the flower bouquet as well, all you'll have to provide are the shoes – though a real zombie bride might break her ankles while wearing shoes, so barefoot is acceptable. The skirt is made of tulle, it is layered, and it has a mullet shape. Then there are the puffy sleeves, the bodice that will be best fitted to your body thanks to the laced ribbons.

Toynk.com is another site selling various Halloween costumes. The one we found for a zombie bride has long sleeves, is colored gray and its skirt is asymmetrical, leaving one leg uncovered. This dress has a matching zombie groom tuxedo, selling for $60. You will not receive flowers, pants nor shoes so you'll have to get them from else where to complete the look.

A dead person can be represented on various ways through the make-up. The skin can be white, and made up to look like bones – or skeleton, so shades of black and gray can be used. This make-up may not be very appropriate for a Halloween bride, either, unless she wants to be a 200 years old one. Above you can see a bride which turned to bones, judging by her make-up. 

If the person wants to impersonate a recently dead bride, then the colors from the make-up kit can be as close to the skin's colors as possible, maybe 1 or 2 shades lighter, with dark spot here and there, indicating maybe a cause of death. One can go even further, with making the skin look ripped, and letting the flesh show, zombie type. But one must keep in mind that the flesh of a dead person is not so red anymore, since the blood has drained to the lower parts of the body – those being the parts of the body which were closer to the ground.
