Halloween Costumes: Office Zombie

Office Zombie

Total Time Needed: Afternoon Or Evening

Got a little horror movie fan at home? Why not turn him into The Office Zombie! For this costume, one of Dad's shirts gets sacrificed as you create a ghoulish character that gives new meaning to the term "office stiff." Kids can wear jeans with this. It's the shirt and tie that really make it work.


  • Old white button-down shirt
  • Red/purple fabric paint
  • Spray bottle
  • Old tie
  • Old briefcase
  • Plastic or rubber appendages: hands, arms, legs, feet


  1. Shred/rip the button-down shirt.
  2. Water down some fabric paint in a spray bottle and liberally douse the shirt to make it look like blood. It may be easiest to just take the shirt outside and do this in your backyard to avoid a mess.
  3. Shred the tie.
  4. Arranged the appendages in the briefcase so they are popping out of the top.
