Get The Zombie Look With Household Items (Toilet paper & Glue)

Ok so if you’re super short on money and can’t afford any of the awesome zombie makeup kits we mentioned above, then your best bet is to get the job done using household items…toilet paper and glue are the main ingredients, if you’ve got them, then you’re good to go. Obviously it won’t look as great as using a kit, but it’ll still look pretty good…or bad. Either way, you’ll get that “I woke up dead” look that you’re wanting.

How Can I Use Zombie Makeup To Make A Bite Mark?

So maybe you want to go all out and not only be a zombie, but also show that you were bit by one. Cool. This is actually pretty easy to do and also works great if you don’t want to be in full zombie mode and instead you’d just like the bite mark to show that you’re in “transition”.

How Much Does Zombie Makeup Cost?

Zombie makeup kits can typically cost anywhere from $5 up to $20 bucks, but a great kit can usually be found in the middle. It all depends on how many extra colors and materials you want. How committed are you to being one of the walking dead?

Another cool thing about the zombie makeup kits is that once you get one, you’ll usually have some left over so you can charge other people to do their zombie makeup for them… this is a much more sanitary way to get them to join your zombie apocalypse, i mean, compared to biting them.
