Celebrity Zombie Costumes for Women

Cool Zombie Costume Ideas

celebrity zombie costumesCan’t decide whether to dress up as your favorite celebrity or a zombie?  Then why not combine the two for an absolutely awesome costume idea.  Over the last couple of years there have been a few ready to wear celebrity zombie costumes available to purchase, but there doesn’t appear to be as many this year.

This isn’t a problem, however, as you can turn any celebrity costume into a fun zombie version for a zombie walk, Halloween or some other costume event.  It really is a fun process to essentially ‘trash’ a regular costume so that you end up with a unique ‘zombified’ version.

Check out a couple of the celeb costumes that are still available for ideas or go straight to make your own zombie celebrity costume!

Iconic Zombie Marilyn Monroe Costume

Maybe This Screen Goddess Isn’t Actually Dead, but Undead

Now the world thinks that Marilyn died in 1962, but what if out of all the conspiracy theories that abound the one no one has even put into words is that she’s not actually in her solid bronze casket in a crypt in LA, but is actually a member of the undead. Marilyn Monroe screen goddess to zombie? It may seem a little unthinkable until you take a look at this costume.

Her iconic 7 year itch white dress has become more of a grey color because she’s been in it a long time and there’s a few blood stains, but she is a zombie so what do you expect?

Add some blood splattered shoes and give her more of a grey complexion and you have the perfect undead Marilyn outfit.

Make Your Own Zombie Celebrity Costume

Of course you can add a few touches to any costume to make it look like a zombie version so dig out last year’s celebrity costume or buy a new costume and let’s ‘trash it zombie style’! The key to a good zombie costume is to make sure it looks tatty, after all zombies lurch around and get caught on all manner of things because they have really bad co-ordination.

How to zombify a celebrity costumeYou can tear, rip or use scissors to give the outfit a more dishevelled look. Next it should look old, whites are supposed to be greys and bright colors need to be dulled. It’s hard to achieve this, but I think one of the easiest ways is to think about how kids like to play because they really know how to get clothes dirty and stained. This means you need to put on the costume and roll around on the ground to get grass and dirt stains on it.

Next we need to look at blood stains – you can use a brush to flick fake blood onto your outfit or use fake blood in a spray bottle to spray on parts of it. In areas where you have a strategic rip/gash in the outfit you might want to add more blood around it, especially if you want to add a wound there.

When it comes to hair, you also want to make this unkempt and try add bits of white or grey to it as well.

Have fun dressing up as your favorite celebrity from the zombie apocalypse, for more inspiration check out some of my other zombie articles on this site.

Gothic Vampire Halloween Costumes

A Halloween Couples Costume Idea

There certainly are a lot of different options for Vampire costumes for both men and women, but I particularly like these costumes for a couple – what do you think?

The use of black with burgundy and grey is very Gothic in look and even though Twilight is no more I think the more classic vampires never go out of fashion.



Zombie Halloween Couples Costumes

Gothic Halloween Costume Ideas

Of course another Gothic couples idea is a Zombie costume and there are certainly a lot of different zombie couples costumes available from Prom King and Queen to a zombie bride and groom, doctor and nurse etc, but for something a little different you can visit an undead school and dress as a Zombie Schoolboy and Zombie Schoolgirl.

Of course sometimes you just want to look at dark versions of well known fairy tales and dress accordingly. A fun couples costume idea is a Gothic take on Alice in Wonderland – let’s check out Alice’s dark side with this cool Gothic costume idea –



Victorian Gothic Costume Ideas

Of course Gothic fashion as we think of it harks back to a lot of the Victorian fashions which is why a great Gothic Halloween costume for a man is Jack the Ripper and if you want to make this a couple’s costume then add one of his victims. A Victorian ‘lady of the night’ can be a sexy Gothic Halloween costume for a lady.



There are lots more Gothic costume ideas for Halloween especially for women from Gothic Ragdoll costumes to Gothic Fairy Costumes, but I hope you’ve enjoyed this small selection of Gothic costumes for couples.

Darth Maul costume, just one idea for a costume beginning with D

If you’re looking for costume ideas that start with the letter D then you’ve come to the right place as I have selected some great costumes for you to choose from. Star Wars fans will love to see that Darth Vader is available while Scooby fans can enjoy dressing up as Daphne, but there are many other costumes to choose from besides those.

I compiled this page along with a number of others as resource pages for anyone who’s been invited to an alphabet party. I used to get invited to a lot of alphabet parties when I was in my 20s and I think it’s high time they caught on again! In a nutshell you have to dress up as something beginning with a particular letter and if you’re on this webpage then the letter chosen is the letter D! I have other webpages available that cover the rest of the letters of the alphabet, but let’s look at costumes beginning with D right now.

Cool Costumes Beginning with D

  • Dad’s Army – costumes based on this old British television comedy about the Home Guard during the war would be good and you could use this as a group costume idea as well.
  • Daffy Duck
  • Dairymaid
  • Daisy Duke
  • Dalai Lama
  • Dalek
  • Dallas Cowboy or even a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader
  • Dalmation
  • Dame Edna Everage
  • Dancers – A great costume idea that starts with D is a dancer and this is where you can have a lot of fun because there’s so many interpretations of dancer from Ballerina to a hip hop dancer and more. There really are lots of different ideas that you can use for this brief from Morris dancers to dancers from Greece, Tibet or more in traditional costume.

  • Danger Mouse
  • Danny – from the cult hit musical Grease
  • Daphne – from everyone’s favorite….Scooby Doo
  • Daria

  • Dart Board – there is a ready made dart board costume available to buy, but this one is pretty easy to make yourself by getting some cardboard and cutting out two circles to stick on your t-shirt or jumper – one on the front with the Dart Board marked out and one on the back that you can keep plain black as the back of the board.
  • Darth Maul
  • Darth Vader – I love the idea of dressing up as Darth Vader just so that I can put on his voice with the only phrase I can ever remember of his – Luke, I am your father!
  • Dead Costumes – Now I know what you’re thinking – dead isn’t a costume! It is, however a cool idea especially with the rise of shows such as The Walking Dead and the interest in zombies that seems to be constantly growing.You dress up as a Dead Bride, Dead Groom, Dead Cheerleader, Dead Cowboy, you get the idea.A cool idea is to take the costume you wore last time you had a fancy dress event and basically ‘trash it’, roll around on grass, smudge it with dirt and maybe rip it a little until it looks like it could’ve been dug up and say you’re a dead ?.Alternatively you can just buy a ready made costume like the ones below or check out some of the ideas on other posts such as zombie costumes for men, zombie costumes for women, zombie costumes for boys or zombie costumes for girls.
