Zombie styles have changed over the years on the big screen, so there are plenty of looks to choose from. Check out this video! Will you be a shuffling Living Dead zombie, or a virus turned Rage victim?

For more inspiration, check out Pinterest, and YouTube has some great tutorial about simple make-up effects. Have fun practicing! We can’t wait to see what ghoulish glamour you are going to bring on the day!There are some things to bear in mind when planning your zombie character. First of all, it is October and we all know what the British weather is like, make sure you are going to be warm enough and dry enough to last the day. Also, you’ll be doing a bit of walking, so comfy footwear is a must. And, if you plan on visiting any pubs for a quick brain juice on route, make sure you steer clear of really sticky fake blood that could leave a mess. Dried is fine! Dusty escaped-from the-grace zombies don’t even need blood!

Stay tuned to this blog in the next few days, we’ll be posting some juicy details about our fabulous World Zombie Night after party, held at the Piccadilly Institute and sponsored by Jagermeister.

Tickets are ONLY £5 and profits go straight to St Mungos. You can snap one up here, grab em like they are juicy brains!
