Zombie Walk: Failed Tie-Dye Tunic, Grey Shorts, Yellow Sunnies

Here's what I wore to take part in the Brisbane Zombie Walk today:


Sunnies: Yellow sunglasses from the Ekka
Bracelets: the usual plus two metal and fabric Indigo Rose Design bracelets
Top: thrifted no label failed tie-dye tunic (new purchase)
Shorts: grey Cotton On shorts
Shoes: brown Roxy thongs
BagChloe paddington cross body clutch

Close up of accessories and a little bit more fake blood:


Went to the Brisbane Zombie Walk today with my friend and DH. Although I'm not really into Halloween or costumes, it was very fun.

I spotted this tunic top when thrifting the other week, we named it the "failed tie-dye top". We knew it would be perfect for the zombie walk when I tried it on and the SA said it looked like a meat dress and was making her ill! Added some fake blood courtesy of the festival "splatterhouse marquee" and some shorts underneath to stop it being indecent. Was a great light costume to wear on such a hot day and I was really pleased with how it turned out.

There are other zombie walks around Australia this month, worth checking out to see if there is one near you as it's a very strange but fun way to spend the day! You can see more pictures I took on instagram here.

DH also managed to take a video near the start of the walk - you can see my friend and I in it too.



The sunnies were last worn here, and bag here. It's the first time I've worn the top, and the first time I've worn the shorts and thongs on the blog.

    1. It did take two washes to get off - the worst part was trying to get it out of my hair though. I had my hair tied back and wanted to mess it up to be more zombie like, but I should have tried that before I got covered in goo....haha.

      So many great costumes, it was fun to watch!

    1. this Brisbane one is a fund raiser for the Brian Foundation of Australia, quite a novel way to raise money! It's also fun to get dressed up and walk through the city scaring unsuspecting people, haha! :)
