Grrrrrrr Arrrrrg

The kooky season is here and my husband and I have teamed up with Costume Box to bring you an amazing undead couples costume.

Costume Box have an amazingly huge selection of couples, kids, women's and men's costumes and plus sizes! With my ample bust I find that a standard XL will fit me everywhere in a costume but my best is always an issue. Luckily Costume Box have many of their most popular costumes in both standard sizing and plus so be sure to doublecheck the size chart on the outfit you love.

For our look we opted for a zombie pair holy folk. No one's safe when the zombie apocalypse hits, not even priests and nuns.


The base for our costumes had to be a perfectly crafted set of holy garments. My look is the Zombie Bloody Mary Plus costume, and Jay is wearing the Zombie Priest. I've opted for a size 1XL, and Jay wears a Large comfortably. The Bloody Mary costume consists of the dress with wound, head piece and belt. The male costume pants, top with a scarf and collar. These are absolutely effortless to wear, and the pre covered with blog items makes a lot less mess to clean up but to be honest I always like to add more. It's not Halloween unless I come home and cover everything with fake blood!

The outfits are stretchy, comfortable and perfect for a night out on the town this Halloween. I find all of my costumes from CostumeBox are super comfy as there is nothing worse than being stuck in a ridged, uncomfortable outfit all night long. We can do the zombie shuffle and monster mash with absolute ease - yep I went there, a total daggy dad joke!

For our makeup looks I was in absolute heaven with the selection of professional Mehron products, various SFX items, tons of fake blood and amazing prosthetics.

I've used the following for both of our zombie makeup looks:

Now I'm not a professional in any way I just a love playing around with SFX products and having a little fun with fake gore. I used a standard foundation base and built up bruises and discoloration on the skin with the bruise wheel.

For our skin and bloody scabs I created tears and a whole lotta mess with the Zombie Liquid latex which is a grey tinged latex. Layering toilet paper and liquid latex can create skin tears as shown. Then fill them with dark shades and fake blood. All of these products will last you a long time so investing in some great Mehron products from the start is a great way to ensure you always have some SFX goodies to play with.


The FX 3D transfers are also a great option if you are not looking to create too much on your own. Each applies directly from the pack and look fab! They have more bits and bloody bobs to make your skin crawl.

Zombie religious figures not your cup of tea? Well with the huge range of individual and couples costumes you can create a complete look with super fast shipping and Afterpay options. With every theme or concept covered and a huge variety of sizes.

I've said it once, and I'll say it again CostumeBox is literally a one stop shop for costuming. I can create a look from head to toe and even snap up a full background to shoot it on! From shoes to wigs, makeup to highly detailed, figure flattering costumes they really have it all.I can't wait to snap up some more costumes for shoots over the next few months and even plan some Christmas themed looks!
