How to make an easy no-sew Halloween zombie costume

Zombies are about the easiest Halloween costume. You can put a scary outfit together in a few minutes and you can also zombify existing costumes – like a zombie pirate or zombie cowboy.

Take an old t-shirt, shirt or jumper, cut some holes with a pair of scissors and splatter with fake blood or red paint. You can do the same with a pair of trousers but it’s not essential.


Make an impressive fake axe from sturdy cardboard and an old broom handle r a thick stick. Spray the blade with silver or gold paint, or wrap it in tin foil. Tie it to the handle with string or an elastic band. Smear fake blood, red paint or even red nail varnish on the edge for a gruesome bloody finish.
