This Halloween, host a Zombie dance for your school, club, reunion, or charity event to bring out the ghastly spirit in all of your guests. They’ll laugh late into the night at this freaky, costumed event filled with eerie surprises, delicious food, and creative favors. Find the white make up and bug eyes. This is your Halloween to be a creative, one-of-a-kind zombie!
Before your guests can fully enjoy their new zombie statuses, they have to enter the zombie cemetery. Every undead cemetery needs a spooky entrance. Fashion a graveyard entrance that allows your guests to enter the party in a scary way.
Wake up the dead with some chamber music, Micheal Jackson, Dead Heads, or The Nearly Deads:
Ask your school’s dance team to perform a zombie dance for your guests’ entertainment.
Afterward, the squad can grab various zombies from the crowd to initiate a group dance. A hot 2012, favorite is the horse dance. Do the zombie version.
Waking the Dead
Once inside the graveyard of the undead, visit your guests’ plots. Before the party, research each guest’s life motto or favorite quote. Then, custom create tombstones with their names and sayings to add to the zombie fun. You can give away the tombstones as favors after the event.
The time has come to strike fear in your guests by letting them see some zombies! Hang vampire bats and hairy spiders in real or fake trees. When they look down there will be fellow zombies, graveyard ghouls, and severed fingers at their feet to welcome them to the undead. In the distance, zombie silhouettes can be seen coming to join the fun with their kin!
Having a cemetery, tombstones, and zombies surrounding your guests will have them feeling a genuine sense of intrigue and, perhaps, being dead!
Besides brains and candy, serve blood red drinks to your hungry guests. Whip up a batch of Mummy Dearest Cupcakes made with your favorite cake mix, chocolate frosting, chocolate cookies, soft lady fingers, vanilla frosting, and mini M & M’s. For a healthy side, try making a few eyeballs.
Zombie Makeup and Costumes
Encourage guests to dress up for your zombie event. They can simply paint their faces and wear wigs. Add full length zombie costumes made with bed sheets, rags, or toilet paper. For inspiration, watch how this zombie make up was applied.
