Ash and I are not huge fans of dressing up, so when we decide to do it, we go all in! We had two parties on Friday night and knew we wanted to dress as a pair, and eventually settled on zombie cheerleader for me and zombie American footballer for Ash. Both of our costumes were won on eBay auctions at the beginning of the month for a fraction of the price we would have paid if we bought them new. My costume consisted of a dress (with exposed rib!) and pom poms. Ash's was a top, trousers (with exposed thigh bone!) and a foam helmet... but unfortunately the helmet absolutely stank and was massive on his head so that stayed at home. I bought some long black socks with red striped tops from ASOS (£2.50, bargain!) and wore my black Vans to finish the costume.
Then I applied the wounds using a thin layer of liquid latex and a hairdryer to help them dry, then brushed them with purple and brown eyeshadow, before applying fake blood with a make up brush.
When we arrived at the first party, the reaction was pretty good! I'm chuffed with how we looked in the end. Although, I felt more dead the morning after than I looked the night before...
What did you dress up as this year?
