Last Sunday was the season premier of AMC series, “The Walking Dead”. That was the first episode I had watched but we were instantly hooked and inspired… for Halloween.
My friends and I were invited to a Pre-Halloween party appropriately entitled, “Night of the Living Dead”. So I did some research online for makeup tutorials to go all out, but without breaking the bank and having to make a trip down to a Halloween/costume store. I found the perfect video on YouTube: “The Walking Dead Zombie make-up tips for Halloween” by The Walking Dead’s very own special effects makeup artists.
After studying this video carefully, I went to Ralph’s supermarket to purchase unflavored gelatine (US$1.49), white cream makeup (US$0.74), and then to Walgreens pharmacy for basic halloween face paint kit (US$6.99) which came with 6-color palette, fake blood, blood spray, black & red grease crayons, etc. So in total, I spent less than $10 for more than enough makeup for four zombies. I think have enough left for another round! Try for yourself 🙂
**I could not find liquid latex, even at the beauty supply store in my neighborhood. If you really must, go to a costume store.
