Zombie Pirate Halloween Costume Ideas

With all of the popular zombie movies and TV shows, people have been dressing up as zombies for Halloween. The same is true for pirates, especially after all of those successful Pirates of the Caribbean films. What if you were to take zombies and pirates, and put them together, though? You would get a Pirate Zombie Halloween costume. Here is how to put one together:

Outfit

The first thing you’re going to need to look for is a pirate costume. You can make one if you’re crafty enough and know your way around a fabric store. By far the easiest method is to buy the entire outfit from a party store or Halloween store, though. If you shop around, you may even find one that comes with accessories so that you don’t need to buy those separately.

At the very least, make sure that it comes with a pirate shirt and pants. Since you’re going to be a zombie, you’re probably going to want to get your clothes dirty. Rip them up a bit, too, while you’re at it.

Accessories

A pirate hat or bandanna is the most important accessory. You can throw in an eyepatch, too, since both pirates and zombies have a tendency to lose their eyes. It could also be a good idea to get a zombie parrot. You might be able to find one at a Halloween store.

For footwear, find some boots that seem reminiscent of the 1600’s if you can. Get a fake sword or a fake pistol for your weapon. Another creepy addition that you might consider is a fake limb. Hide your real arm and make it look like your fake one is dangling on by a thread.

Makeup

Your makeup is what’s really going to add the “zombie” element. Get a zombie makeup kit and make sure that you have plenty of latex wounds. Buy some fake blood and have it dribble from your skin. Make your skin look ashy and pale. Ready to join the undead in Davy Jones’ locker? Try a pirate zombie costume this Halloween.
