How To Be Zombie Taylor Swift For Halloween

by Jessica Thomas

Taylor Swift is a cultural phenomenon who redefines #squadgoals, so it's no wonder she's one of the most popular Halloween costumes year after year. However, a zombie Taylor Swift Halloween costume is something that would be totally unexpected and absolutely awesome. Oh, and if you have a group of friends, you can have them dress up as zombified versions of her girl squad. Brilliant, right?

Thinking of Taylor Swift Halloween costumes brings me straight back to junior year of high school when the most popular costume was vintage Taylor Swift with corkscrew blonde curls, a sparkly dress, and cowboy boots. Nowadays, her style is a little more sophisticated. She's all about the crop tops, high socks, and vintage-inspired shoes, not to mention her blonde curls have been transformed into a sleek bob.

No matter how Taylor Swift dresses, she'll always hold a special place in my memories and be a recognizable icon that is perfect to emulate for Halloween. If you feel the same way and want to channel Taylor with your Halloween costume this year, kick it up a notch and go as a zombie Taylor Swift. Take your basic Taylor Swift outfit (outlined below), add a stuffed version of one of her cats (Olivia Benson and Meredith Grey), throw on some zombie makeup, and your look will be complete.

Here's what you need:

Taylor is supermodel tall, so she's a fan of showing off her legs in adorable little skirts. This leather skater skirt is a combination sweet and tough, exactly like her.

Taylor's red lip is definitely her signature look, so you can't forget it, even if the rest of your face will be covered with zombie makeup. Go classic with MAC's Ruby Woo red.

Blonde Wig

Not #blessed with luscious blonde hair like Taylor? Go with a wig to complete the look. She's been rocking a shoulder length bob with bangs lately, so I like this one from Party City. It's not a perfect match, but it's pretty close.

Stuffed Cat

Taylor is pretty much a self-professed cat lady, so this is a must-have accessory. Her cat Olivia Benson is a Scottish Fold, so if you want to get really technical, this stuffed cat is the most accurate replica. But really, any old stuffed cat will do.

Zombie Makeup

The look won't be complete unless you go all out with your zombie makeup. Taylor is a cute costume on her own, but this will totally take it over the top. Use this zombie makeup tutorial. And don't forget to add some makeup to the stuffed cat! It'll take the look from good to great.
