zombie costume

Join the walking dead as you scour the streets for candy or brains.
Step 1
Smooth out the black T-shirt on a flat surface. If necessary, iron to remove any wrinkles.  
Step 2
To make the jacket, cut a piece of black tape that is about 3" longer than the length of the T-shirt at center front. Apply the tape down the very center of the T-shirt, from the collar to the bottom hem. Tuck excess tape under the collar and under the bottom hem. 
Step 3
Cut down the very center of the strip of tape to cut the front of the shirt in half. Do not cut the back side of the shirt at all! Fold back the upper front pieces of the shirt to look like lapels. Cover this exposed underside of the shirt with strips of black tape, folding any excess underneath the lapels. Once you’ve fully covered the lapel area with Duck Tape®, crease the fold of the lapel to help it stay in place. Put a sticky side out folded piece of tape behind the lapel to stick it to the shirt underneath. Repeat for the other lapel.  
Step 4
To shred the jacket, use scissors to rip out the hem stitching on the arms and bottom of the shirt. Do not be careful, just slash away. Use scissors to fringe the shirt bottom and sleeves. Rip several of the fringes to tear them even further, and give an uneven appearance to the tears. 
Step 5
With the white paint in your Snazaroo™ kit, apply messy smudges and marks to the jacket, as shown in the project image. 
Step 6
To make zombie hair, add talcum powder to hair, then hair spray upside down to make it crazy.  
Step 7
Paint face using paints from the Snazaroo™ kit. 
Step 8
Wear with your own T-shirt underneath the jacket and your own black pants and black shoes. 
Step 9
