I got this idea for a Homemade Living Dead Doll Costume from the Living Dead Doll line. My husband is a special effects artist and attends tradeshows on a regular basis. He will bring my daughter a Living Dead Doll from each tradeshow he attends. The idea for the costume was mine. I had a vision of how I wanted it to look and I knew my husband could pull off the make-up. I used an old dance recital costume, made a cape, purchased a wig and tights. The wig and the make-up really make the costume. My husband airbrushed her make-up.
We went to her school's Trick or Treat Street last week and she turned many heads. We received endless compliments! This was a fun costume to put together and if you have or know someone who has great make-up skills, you can easily pull this off!
For this Living Dead Dolls Costumes, buy a dress, tear it up and smear blood, on the holes and tear draw black scars that look like stitches on either side of your mouth and use black lipstick to draw small lips. Put your hair in 2 pig tails and tease them to look messy.
Wear a large bow. Wear skin color tights to make your legs look glossy and plastic. Wear high socks and rip them up. Wear lots of eye makeup, fake eyelashes, and add dripping blood where necessary.
My daughter has a collection of living dead dolls and decided she wanted to be one for Halloween. She chose Catrina from series 20 Days Of The Dead. I bought the shirt. The skirt I got at a secondhand shop.
I painted the skull with fabric paint. I did her makeup, sprayed her hair black and added a red flower to it. She looked just like her doll and got lots of compliments for her Homemade Living Dead Doll Costume.
