Halloween Costume Mash-Ups: Part 2

Zombie Ryan Gosling. They have next to nothing in common (other than being named beacons of ‘high-bro’ culture by GQ last year)—we just think there’s something deviantly hilarious about crossing an impossibly charming heartthrob (beloved by feminists and Ellen, among others) with perhaps the most vile thing to ever infest TV screens: the reanimated corpses on AMC’s zombie drama, The Walking Dead.

Two tips for pulling this off with aplomb:
1) Comb your hair. A sloppy coif will ruin any resemblance to the always-groomed Gosling.
2) Take it easy with the zombie makeup. No festering wounds, no missing lips or jaws. Your riffs on ‘Hey girl—I love brains’ pick-up lines will have a higher success rate if you simply go matte-grey, with some dark circles under the eyes.
