Ideas For Halloween Fancy Dress Costumes

If you need some inspiration, don’t worry the Smiffys-Liverpool team is here to help. Here’s a quick list of two ideas for Halloween fancy dress.

  1. Zombie Fancy Dress

    Zombies are very popular in film, TV, comic books and videogames. For example, AMC’s television show The Walking Dead adapted from a black-and-white comic book series of the same name from writer Robert Kirkman and artist Tony Moore. Additionally, from film there are movies such as Shaun of the Dead and 28 Days Later, and from videogames there’s also the very popular Left4Dead series and Resident Evil series.

    There are lots of fun ways that you could dress up as a zombie. For example, you could choose themed zombie fancy dress costumes such as a zombie prom queen or a zombie doctor. However, if you want to take your zombie costume to the next level, it’s important to do some research. For example, with regards to applying fake blood to your zombie costume; did you know that blood is not always red? Only fresh blood is red in colour. When it dries it becomes a red/brown colour. So in order to take your zombie costume to the next level, remember to use a fresh blood coloured fake blood in areas where fresh blood might be, such as around the zombie’s mouth, whereas bloodstains on your costume or zombie wounds should be darker in tone and look like dried blood.

    Another way to take your zombie costume to the next level is to improve your zombie walk. One great way to find inspiration for your zombie walk is to watch zombie films and television shows, paying careful attention to how to zombies move. However, you could also watch this video of The Walking Dead’s zombie school for some extra guidance.

    So, if you’re feeling inspired and want to dress up as a zombie this Halloween. The Smiffys Fancy Dress Shop online store has a fantastic selection of different products to choose from including zombie fancy dress costumes, prosthetics, and zombie accessories to customise your zombie Halloween costume.
  2. Halloween Vampire Costumes
    Similar to zombies, there are numerous different vampires throughout fiction to choose from with regards to fancy dress inspiration. For example, if you’re interested in film you could look at a vampire Halloween costume inspired by Blade, From Dusk till Dawn, or Underworld. However, if you are more interested in literature, perhaps you would like to opt for vampire fancy dress inspired by Vampire Academy or Twilight.
    Alternatively, perhaps you would like to create a vampire costume inspired by the television series Buffy The Vampire Slayer? This is a very popular TV series was created by Joss Whedon, however in July, it was announced that this 1997-2003 TV series will be rebooted.

    Indeed, vampires are very varied throughout fiction so it’s very possible that numerous people at a Halloween party could decide to dress up as a vampire, so if you want to customise your vampire costume, we have a wide variety of products to choose from including a selection of vampire fangs and vampire teeth, fake blood, and numerous other accessories for your vampire costume such as a Vampire Brow 3D FX Transfer which uses technology that garnered Tinsley Transfers an Academy Award for Technical Achievement.
