Golden Girl Beneath My Skin Costume - final view of makeupI've seen a lot of creepy, gory costumes using a zipper and special effects kits to make people look like they have zombies underneath their unzipped skin. My costume this year is a take on that, but showing that under my skin, I am a girl made of gold. You do not need to have a special effects kit for this. I used items I already had in my sewing room and bathroom! Happy Halloween!


Total Time: 1 hour


  • 1 zipper
  • scissors
  • eyelash adhesive
  • foundation makeup
  • Vaseline
  • gold glitter
  • paintbrush
Golden Girl Beneath My Skin
Costume - supplies


  1. Hold the zipper against your face, starting from your hairline and curving under your chin. Trim any excess under your jawbone.
  2. Golden Girl Beneath My Skin Costume - measure zipper and cut off excess
  3. Add eyelash adhesive on the back of the zipper. Let stand one minute to become tacky before pressing against your face.
  4. Golden Girl Beneath My Skin Costume - attach to your face with eyelash adhesive
  5. Press zipper against your face, all the way down to your chin. I like the zipper to be open between my eyes for ease, comfort, and most dramatic results.
  6. Golden Girl Beneath My Skin Costume - press down to chin

  7. Start adding foundation to the cloth part of the zipper itself and onto your face so the zipper blends into your skin.

  9. Now start dabbing Vaseline all over your nose, lips, and chin. This is where the glitter will go.

  11. Dab a good amount of loose glitter all over the areas with Vaseline.
  12. Golden Girl Beneath My Skin Costume - add glitter
  13. Use a paintbrush to get glitter in the corners near and right under the zipper. You don't want to get the glitter on the zipper.
  14. Golden Girl Beneath My Skin Costume - use paint brush to get in corners keeping it off zipper

  15. Hold on to your zip from the top and smile. You will appear to unzip and shine!
