Zombie Girl Costume and PLEASE VOTE FOR ME!!

American Crafter has begun!!  And I need your votes!!  My Zombie Girl Costume is what I submitted this week…
My preteen thinks she is too old for a “cutesy” Halloween costume.  But she is not too old to want to have some Halloween fun!  So I made the “Zombie Girl Costume” for her this Halloween!  You will need some bloody clothes and lots of makeup.  The headless, bloody teddy bear completes the outfit cause every girl zombie carries a headless teddy bear!  Head on over to my blog for more info on how I brought this costume together.  It is super easy….let’s face it moms need easy projects this time of year!  
 
So if you have not already….
Now do you want to know how to make your own costume??  It is super, super easy!
The “star” of the show is a headless teddy bear!  Just cut off his head and add some paint to appear as blood.  I took red paint and added a hint of black for all of my “blood” painting.
The other star is the make up.  I covered her face in white eye shadow to make her skin very light.  I used a mix of dark eye shadows around her eyes.  The blood and veins are just those make up crayons that they cell in the Halloween aisle.  Just draw on various veins and lines…I also added a “cut” with a black crayon on her neck…
Don’t forget to also add make up to the hands.  That is why it is important to get a long sleeve shirt.  Again use white eye shadow to make the skin light and crayons to make the veins…so spooky…
For the clothing, I got pj bottoms and a long sleeve shirt from goodwill.  I mixed red paint with a little black and painted it on various areas on both the shirt and the pants.  Oh so spooky….
We are ready for some trick or treat fun!  And my daughter is THRILLED with her costume…that is priceless!!
Pretty please with sugar on top….

Linking up to Halloween Party on It’s a Blog Party.
Thanks so much!!  Can’t wait to see the results!!

    Nice.

    You might want to consider mousse or hairspray to give her some seriously bad hair. Also, a thin makeup base of blue, purple, or green will give her skin that “dead for a week” tone.

    Would you like to visit our “Conservation” Linky Party to add your neat idea?

    This week it’s ‘Share Your Halloween Tips & Tricks (or Treats!)’ I think you’d fit right in!

    Thank you for your consideration,
