I am very late posting this but wanted to share anyhow... We participate in a Zombie walk every year for charity- my daughter has done the walk every year since she was about 7 months old! (she's almost 5 now)  I've posted a few of our previous zombie costumes here also. This is from 2012's zombie walk! Now that she is older she wanted to go all out and have a really good costume. So mommy obliged her!  We were on the news also- they interviewed us and it was on the news and online!!!!!

Her prosthetic is all custom made since it is practically impossible to find one small enough for lil' ones- the teeth were made from air dry clay & then painted & coated in clear nail polish & the piece itself was made from latex, paint and cotton balls. then it was attached with more latex & tissue- then make-up & blood were added.  Her costume itself is put together with pieces she already owned & a thrift store house coat- I just tore them up & added blood & dirt. The oxygen mask was one left behind in my home by the paramedics one night when I was taken to hospital, I just added blood to it and filled the bag with a coagulated mixture I made from paint, food colouring, water and gelatin and the oxygen tank was made from a 2 liter bottle, some metal tape, paint and left over material from an apron I made for my husband's costume. We also borrowed my mother's wheelchair to add to the effect as she was suppose to be a patient from the hospital. Of course we had horrible weather & it rained almost the entire walk- thankfully her prosthetic held up really well & honestly it probably added to the make-up effects!!  I unfortunately don't have any progress shots but here are some of the finished product!!

Thanks very much! I do enjoy making them quite a bit!!  BTW there is alternatives to latex... I do recipe using gelatin & a few other ingredients-  I had to find some sort of alternative as I have a friend that asked me to make her a prosthetic , & she is highly allergic to latex!

Omg this is cooooooool!!!!! She looks like she had fun, would have loved to have been there to see it in person! Might have to do something like this with my brothers (I'm 1 of 5 kids myself haha) a whole trove of us runnin around in ghoulish makeup would probably freak out the whole town! I just love this!!!
