Decorations & Costumes for a Zombie Halloween
Posted by Wendy Moyle on July 15, 2010
We can’t explain the enduring popularity of zombies, but we do know that creating a “Zombie Halloween” is dead simple if you shop for decorations and costumes at ShindigZ Party.
To start, select a great backdrop for the zombie terror-tory. A black-and-white photo mural such as the Cemetery Gates photo illustration or the Misty Woods photo background will lend a classic Night of the Living Dead feel. They come in several different sizes and materials to suit your setting, and can even be personalized with your wording. Another way to go is to backlight one of our extra-large free-standing silhouette pieces such as our Graveyard or Crypt. (The Crypt Silhouette, incidentally, is made of weather resistant Corex and can be used outdoors, too.)
Highlight the entrance to the party or other haunted scene using the Graveyard Gates cemetery arch or the Spooktacular Cemetery Kit. If you’d like to build a pathway to or through the entrance, we highly recommend using the Cobblestone Patterned Flat Paper, which comes in shades of gray or tan, for this purpose.
Scatter a few personalized Halloween tombstones and our Zombie Silhouettes through your setting. Then garnish your creation with tattered lengths of black crepe streamers – hung poorly! – and a couple of cobwebs.
Lastly, shop our Gothic Costumes catalog for a great undead look at any age, and you’ll be well on your way to Zombieland!
