Want to give people a real fright this Halloween? Few costumes inspire as much terror as the dreaded zombie!

Step 1: Rip your clothes
Make your costume look like it's come back from the dead. Tear your clothes in a few different places. Then, liberally spread fake blood on them to show that you've already enjoyed a few meals of human flesh.

Step 2: Go for the face
"Create a shriveled look for your face":http://www.howcast.com/videos/405598-... stuff your cheeks with cotton balls and cover the skin with a few thin layers of liquid latex. Keep your cheeks full while the latex dries. Then, remove the cotton and watch as the dried latex wrinkles to make your skin look dead.

Shave and moisturize any skin before applying liquid latex to make removal easier.

Step 3: Go for the ghoul
Apply at least 2 coats of white, water-based makeup to any exposed skin to give yourself a deathly pall. Then, apply light-blue, water-based makeup to any fleshy areas and dark- blue makeup to any portion of your skin you want to look hollowed out.

Step 4: Get wounded
Give yourself some gory wounds. Use liquid latex to create raised and torn looking skin. Then, dab purple, red, and brown acrylic paint to color the outside of the gash and spread fake blood inside the wound to make it look fresh.

You can also enhance your costume with store-bought zombie prosthetics.

Step 5: Walk the walk
Perfect the zombie limp -- keep one leg straight while dragging your other foot along the ground -- and take to the streets. Moan loudly and speak in a halting monotone about your desire for human flesh; being rudely woken up from eternal slumber would make anyone hungry!

Did You Know?
In 2009, 13,597 people in Mexico City set a world record by simultaneously dancing to Michael Jackson's zombie-themed hit, "Thriller."
