“…. Go to your garden and grab a hand-full of leaves, grass, dirt, sand, pebbles, dog doodoo and splash it on your face…”
Twas’ Nirvana’s 27th birthday party and the zombies came out to play… For some reason, there were more Britney zombies than other types of zombies. There was zombie punch, zombie posters, zombie food, eerie blood zombie lighting and even a zombie slayer.
We had a blast.
Ok, I have received a lot of questions about how zombie skin is made… Well, there are a number of ways – but the cheapest is very simple and I should get royalties for sharing my “secret” recipe with the world.
How to make zombie skin (Zombie Skin Recipe):
I use water and flour. Simple. Water and flour, apply it on your skin after you’ve mashed it to a gooey/sticky consistency (but not too runny). Then you can add jam (preferably one that has dark red berries – boysenberry jam works well).Go to your garden and grab a hand-full of leaves, grass, dirt, sand, pebbles, dog doodoo and splash it on your face, arms and hands… Whatever tickles your fancy – and presto! Bob’s your uncle.
!! A word of warning !!
This mix will dry, itch and stretch your skin – it’ll hurt like hell after a few hours and it gets very uncomfortable. Then the fun part is removing it from your skin, and hair. I understand what women go through when they wax. Oh the pain! I would suggest shaving those body parts where you plan to apply the mix.
The second method is used to make scabs, lacerations, and vile looking infections on your skin. You can purchase liquid latex from costume shops and mix it with toilet paper. Build layers up on top of one another and form the laceration as required!
Thanks for an awesome night Nirvana!
