Preparing for a ZOMBIE Photoshoot
Zombie Photo Shoot

Come and spend the day, dead!

We transform you fully, from head to toe, using professional makeup, loads of fake blood, and sinister horror movie lighting techniques to generate the best zombie portraits on the market!

About this shoot

• In this dramatic photoshoot, you will be fully transformed into a zombie. The transformation is very thorough, from head-to-toe, and includes torn and filthy clothes, grime all over your body and hair, and of course terrifying zombie face make-up.

• You will be directed by the photographer into scary poses which will feature a lot of fake blood. As the shoot progresses, more blood will be added.

• This is a very gory portrait photoshoot in which you will become the most amazing zombie! The actual shoot is a lot of fun and not scary to do, but the resulting photos are very scary!

• Maximum x4 people.

Things you need to bring

Old clothes that we can ruin. Please try not to arrive wearing your zombie clothes as we will need to cut holes in them and make them dirty prior to the shoot.

Please consider light coloured clothes, rather than dark colours or reds. We want all the blood and gore to really show up so lighter colours work better for this. However, you can wear whatever you like so if you want to wear dark colours then you can, but the gore will be less visible.

You can theme your zombie if you want to (for example, a zombie clown, zombie nurse etc). You will need to supply the costume and be prepared for it to get very messy.

Damage to clothes: Please keep in mind that whatever clothes or costume you bring may suffer damage or be utterly ruined by the end of the shoot. We do zombies properly at Horrify Me!

Props: Feel free to bring any appropriate props if you have any that you would like to use (optional).

Eyes: You may bring your own eye contacts for scary eye effects if you want to (optional). We don't supply contacts.

• Please bring a towel for clean-up at the end.

The makeup process

Horrify Me supplies all the horror makeup and fake blood.

• The makeup process is thorough and comprehensive. We don't simply apply a bit of face paint, but use tactile textures and scars and proper zombie decay. We also prepare you from head-to-toe with grime and gore, including your hair. The process can take a few hours.

• Every makeup is different and unique to you! We don't re-use the same pieces on people, instead we create each makeup completely bespoke to suit your own face on the day, so your zombie portrait will be as individual as you.

The shoot

• You will be guided throughout the shoot and instructed how to pose.

• As the shoot progresses, more blood gets added and the process gets very messy and gory.

• All the makeup and fake blood is completely safe. The blood is sugar-based and fully edible allowing for plenty of drooling and flesh eating.

Clean up

• At the end of the shoot you can clean up. Everything is harmless but certain parts might pull on your skin like a sticking plaster, or leave small traces of skin glue behind which will need to be washed off.

• You will be able to wash in the studio. Everything comes off pretty easily and you will be able to go home in fairly clean condition, although you might need a shower when you get home.

• You will do a variety of poses, either solo or with your fellow zombies. There will be gory flesh eating, scary lighting effects, and many scary set ups. The process is great fun and the photos look like real horror movie stills.
