Shaun of the Dead is a horror comedy film set in the Untied Kingdom. Created by Simon Pegg and published by Universal Pictures in 2004. The film’s main protagonist Shaun is a salesman that operates an electrical shop. He struggles to find meaning in his life and is constantly belittled by his younger colleges at work. His relationship with his girlfriend is also showing cracks as he deals with finding meaning in his life. On top of all this, a zombie apocalypse has taken over the city. Shaun, his friend Ed and Liz battle the zombies and defend the Winchester pub. The reception of the film was positive with critics citing its humour and gore as standouts.
The Shaun of the Dead costume we will be showing you how to put together today will be the main protagonist, Shaun, portrayed by Simon Pegg. I will leave all relevant links below to the products used to make this costume, along with descriptive information on the products as well.
For the white shirt, I just went for an affordable option. I did have a white shirt I already owned but they were long sleeve and I wanted to keep the Shaun of the dead costume as authentic as possible. I’ve bought a couple of items from this brand before and they have always been very good quality so this is no different. For me, it fitted as expected, felt quite comfortable. I would have liked to have gotten a shot with no branding at all but I didn’t manage to find one but none the less this is great and it’s a good fit for the Shaun of the Dead costume.
Red striped tie
The tie used in the costume I striped, I got this on amazon. It is made completely from silk. Great tie, love the red stripe look. The silk feels fantastic. It’s a bold colour that I doubt I’d wear outside the Shaun of the dead costume. It a good tie for the price, absolutely perfect for the costume.
For the black pants, I went for a casual look. I got on amazon. It is made from cotton. I wasn’t expecting much from these, I just mainly bought them for this costume but I was very happy with what I got. Very shiny pair of pants. They fitted very well, I do see a lot of reviews mention to pick your size carefully as there isn’t much wiggle room. Overall a good pair of black pants that suit the Shaun of the dead costume.
The black shoes, I picked out a pair on amazon. I already have a black pair of shoes so I didn’t need to purchase anymore put if you need a pair of shoes I would recommend these for the costume.
I bought my cricket bat locally as it was cheaper and it had no branding on it. A lot of the cricket bats on amazon are branded which I don’t like. I didn’t manage to find one that wasn’t branded but it is quite expensive.
Shaun of the dead costume id badge
The final piece of the Shaun of the dead costume is the id badge for Foree Electric Its a sticker not a badge but is worked well no problems from me. I think it adds a lot to the costume, making it that more authentic. Must for the Shaun of the dead costume.
