We love to make our own costumes. I like to create a costume using thrift shop finds combined with creative makeup. My son has been obsessed with zombies for a few years now and decided he wants to be a Zombie Baseball Player for Halloween this year. A Zombie Halloween Costume is an easy transformation anyone can create. And you can personalize to their favorite hobbies or characters – over the years my son has been a zombie skateboarder and zombie pirate, Perfect for trick or treating, Halloween party or a Trunk or Treat event.

Zombie Costume DIY
Step 1: Find some clothes and accessories that you can thrash. We used an old baseball shirt from last season and we found a beat up baseball bat at a local thrift store.
Step 2: Thrash the clothing. Using scissors make cuts and holes all over the clothing. Rip the clothing in a few places for a more authentic look.
Step 3: Place clothing on an old towel. Pour red food coloring into a squirt bottle. Apply red coloring to shirt near the rips and splatter in a few additional places. You can also add use dirt, charcoal or black eye shadow to the clothing.
Step 4: Beat up the baseball bat (use a hammer, drag it around on the street, rub some dirt on it – give it to your kid and they’ll have a blast ‘zombifying it’)
Get dressed, grab your bat and a trick or treat bucket and your zombie is ready for Halloween!
