    Make tears in the outfit, almost v like patterns. I have seen a real cool zombie groom outfit and the white shirt is greyed with red marker stains on it and or fake blood stains.

    crumple it up, rub it in the dirt. is there a breast pocket on the blazer? if so, rip it so it’s hanging down.

    dr. tongue – good choice, that’s one creepy ass mask! :)

    Turn the pants into sloppy, uneven, cut-offs and don’t tuck the dress shirt in. Shred the ends of everything else but be sure to keep a pattern-decide how you died and work with that-Last year I was a model that got run over, so I had one streak of a tire track and blood surrounding that track. rub everything in dirt but just remember that the best way to make blood and tearing look real is to keep it simple and refrain from going overboard. Good luck! :)

    This is kind of gross but if your willing to go all out I was a zombie before an it looked good. I was a stewardess zombie and I had on white so I soaked some of my stuff in tea( to stain it ) and then I dipped some of the edges in mud/ sand. It dried and looked so gross.

    Ok.. If you’re actually invested.. bury it. Serious business, bury it for about 8 hours.

    If you aren’t, Hang the outfit up separately and throw dirt on it, then fake blood at random first, then get a bat or something and hit it a lot. Then go into detail with it. Cut open the shoulder.. the knee.. elbows.. places where they’d fall down and then pick a place you were bitten. Its usually in the neck or arm..

    If it’s in the neck, tear off a bit of the cloth from the top.. if it’s the arm, tear a full hole in the sleeve.

    Now to achieve the zombie appearance.

    If you wanna do it cheap? I suggest glue a few layers of toilet paper over any wounds you want to have, 4-6 layers, then randomly tear them open and put blood in and perhaps some green-brown paint to set in rot.

    Do that a bit at the knees because being a zombie, you aren’t going to have perfect balance..
