Plus Size Zombies! We EXIST! (Outfit of the Day – Halloween)

I am MEGA FAN of “The Walking Dead!”  I’ve had planned to use this costume for the Zombie Walk in Downtown Long Beach, CA but I had my surgery that day and didn’t make it out.  I also look forward to Halloween every year to dress up in something WONDERFUL!

My Son had a BLAST in this photo shoot.  I had the perfect spot in mind and he took some great pictures of me getting in to character and devouring a human hand… Don’t worry it was made out of plastic and the “blood” is all ketchup… HA!

This is a TORRID costume I found “gently used” earlier this year.  It was comfy and great FUN to wear.  I had kids and adults take pictures with me as well as tell me how “awesome” I looked.

Due to my extremely sensitive skin I used my regular makeup to create the look.  Using a tiny square makeup sponge I mixed patterns on my face, neck, chest, arms and legs.  I used my orange, green, blues, purples, black and grey eye shadow randomly on these patterns and “streaks.”  I then added dimension with a black eye pencil and a white eye pencil as well as a liquid bronzer.  After applying red lipstick in a HORRID fashion I applied red lip gloss over it as well as splatter more ketchup for a messier “eating.”  If work permitted us to dress up I would of been more elaborate and added intricate “wounds.”

All in all it came out great and had an AMAZING Halloween!  Here’s my tribute to “The Walking Dead!
Rrrraaaaarwwwrrrr!!!!!
