Here's Everything You Need To DIY A Taylor Swift Corpse Costume From The "Look What You Made Me Do" Video

September 6, 2017 by Samantha Peters

When you think of Taylor Swift, pristine designer gowns, bold red lipstick and flawless cat eyes usually come to mind. So when she first appeared in her new music video, “Look What You Made Me Do,” as a zombie rising from the grave, our first reaction was to be a little bit shocked. Our next thought? This totally makes the perfect Halloween costume! If this *ingenious* idea also crossed your mind, you’ve come to the right place. Here, we’ve compiled a list of everything you need to make your very own Taylor Swift corpse costume. Check it once, check it twice for some killer inspiration.

This costume is actually pretty simple to throw together, as it only requires a few pieces. To start, you’ll want to find a floor-length, Old Hollywood style gown. For a truly authentic look, try the Surplice Ruched Chiffon Gown in Mist from Nordstrom. Its blue color, sleeveless construction and flattering waistline make this dress a near replica of the one Taylor wore in her video. Plus, you’ll not only be able to wear it on Halloween but throughout the year to any black tie event you may attend (after all, it still is wedding season).

If you’re not willing to shell out a few hundred dollars on a department store dress, try visiting your local vintage shop for some unique and affordable finds. You can play around with different styles, as long as the dress encompasses that retro glam feel!

Here’s where the fun part comes in. To really give off those deceased vibes, you’ll want to focus on your makeup. Use black face makeup to draw on dark under eye circles and highlight your cheekbones. The key is to contour your face to achieve that emaciated effect. Get creative and add any extra smudges—they’ll look like dirt. You can even add some smudges to your dress if you’re feeling daring (this is where the less expensive dress comes in handy). And if you need a little more guidance, you can follow a step-by step tutorial that will walk you through the whole process.

For hair, don’t be afraid to get really messy. Ruffle it up, tease it, and hold the final look with hair spray so you won’t lose any volume throughout the festivities.

In addition to her disheveled appearance, one of the first things we noticed about Taylor as she crawled out of the ground was her piercing stare. To create that ghoulish flair, try a pair of white UV contact lenses. They look fantastically opaque during the day and glow brightly under UV light if you choose to dance the night away—maybe to LWYMMD?

While we’re currently obsessed with this spooky look, you can emulate any number of Taylor Swift’s personas from her latest music video—from snake charmer Taylor to rocker chic Taylor. The options are endless and oh-so fabulous.
