HalloweenCostumes.com Zombie School Girl Review

Halloween is next month and if you’re like me, you’ve been thinking about your next costume since last year. Last year I was Luigi and this year I will be a Zombie School Girl! The costume was provided by HalloweenCostumes.com. They have an enormous amount of costumes ranging from infants to adults and a bunch of great geek themed costumes as well.

Now us geeks like playing dress up so we don’t need to wait until October 31st like everyone else to throw on a cape or Vader helmet. So if you can’t make your costume for the next con, I recommend buying it from Halloween Costumes, I’m sure they have something to satisfy your cosplay craving.

First off it took me literally days to decide on a costume to review because there were so many I liked. I’ve done cute and “sexy” costumes before but this year I wanted to switch things up and get the Zombie School Girl costume. I love the undead and it was about time I became one and the Zombie School Girl Costume wanted my brains.

My Zombie School Girl costume came in the mail and I immediately tried it on and it fit perfectly. I threw on some makeshift zombie makeup and took some pics, but no smiling because zombies don’t smile! I never had a school uniform so I couldn’t have made the costume myself at home, and even if I did I don’t think it would look nearly as good. The costume came with a ripped tie, a plaid skirt. But the best part was the charcoal gray jacket with attached shirt equipped with blood stains, ripped and frayed on the edges and even a gross rubber bloody gash! When Halloween comes around I’ll probably make it extra school girly and get some knee-high stockings, mary jane shoes and fake blood.

I recommend you head over to HalloweenCostumes.com for your costume and cosplay needs for the next convention or Halloween Party. They ship quickly and have a flat rate of $4.99 and have a great sale section which it sure beats the fighting crowds at costume stores during Halloween season.

Disclosure – I was provided the Zombie School Girl costume for a review, however, all thoughts an opinions are my own and I wasn’t paid for this post.  Thank you HalloweenCostumes.com for providing the costume for this review!
