Shaun of the Dead Costume
Shaun of the Dead Costume.
The outfit worn by Shaun Riley throughout his walking moments during Shaun of the Dead, consists of a white, short sleeved, uniform shirt, black trousers, red striped tie and Foree Electric name badge. A number of props could be added to bring an air of authenticity to the costume. We have suggested a prop cricket bat and prop rifle here. Other great alternatives could be a pool cue or bouquet of flowers.
Shaun of the Dead Badge.
The most difficult part of Shaun’s ensemble to replicate is the name badge, but never fear, our Zombie Pit team have tracked down a high quality Prop replica created by Epic IDs that is going to complete your Shaun of the Dead Costume with a truly authentic touch.
If you are planning to attend a Halloween party, costume event, or cosplay gathering, this badge will be perfect to complete your authentic Shaun of the Dead ensemble. It also makes an excellent collector’s item to frame, hang on the wall, or just to show off to fellow Shaun of the Dead fans.
These beautifully made cards are manufactured in the USA with professionally designed artwork and made from the highest quality materials. A safety catch on the reverse enables a secure hold onto your clothes or costume. These cards are durable and abrasion resistant, so chances are these name badges stand a better chance of surviving the zombie apocalypse than you do!

Shaun of the Dead Shirt
Shaun’s shirt is a plain White Short Sleeved Uniform Shirt. This shirt is made from 55% cotton, 45% polyester and is machine washable. It is a slim fit with front button fastening and a chest pocket to secure your Foree Electric badge.
Shaun of the Dead Trousers
The trousers worn by Ed throughout his waking moments are an ordinary pair of black, uniform, formal trousers. It is highly likely that if you possess such a pair of pants in your wardrobe you will be happy to use these with your cosplay outfit for a Halloween party, zombie movie fest or any horror / zombie soiree. The committment to a role should never be underestimated and by having a dedicated pair of pants that you regard as part of your Shaun of the Dead Costume is a wise move. Not only will it help you “get into the role”, it also acts as a safeguard against any spills or accidents that might take place. We have picked a stylish pair of black pants in which you will feel comfortable, that suit the role ideally and which are economical. These hero pants are made from a soft, polyester fabric. These are easily cleaned as they are machine washable. You can be sure of a comfortable fit throughout no matter what misadventures those zombies bring. Don a pair of these pants and you will be Shaun ready!
Shaun of the Dead Tie
This 100% Woven Silk Red Solid Striped Tie is an excellent choice to match with your Shaun of the Dead Foree Electric Uniform. It is handmade of 100% woven silk , measures 58 inches long by 3 and half inches wide.
Alternatively, our UK visitors can check out this red, polyester woven, striped tie that would be a great match for any Shaun of the dead ensemble, whether your Shaun is wearing as part of his formal work attire or tied around his head in rambo, zombie slayer style, to stem the blood flow from his near dart experience!
Shaun of the Dead Cricket Bat.
When Shaun burst through the shed doors to find a suitable weapon to defend himself, little did he know he would settle on what is probably one of the most ideal choices for defence during a zombie apocalypse, a cricket bat! Though designed for sport rather than zombie elimination, a cricket bat makes an excellent defence weapon as it is light to carry, easy to wield, effetive in eliminating attackers and never runs out of amunition!
Because a cricket bat can be used as a weapon it is not suitable for attending comic conventions. As an alterantive we suggest you get your hands on a prop replica bat. There are some fairly realistic looking foam versions to be had and we have picked out two we think will do the job.
Wood effect cricket bat
This wood effect cricket is made from foam which makes it the ideal choice for attending comic conventions where real bats are prohibited. The bat measures 24 inches in length and has a comfortable grip handle in contrasting colour. The wood grain effect on the paddle gives a realistic look that makes this the ideal bat for Shaun of the Dead cosplay. Cosplay fans will be pleased to know this bat is available for international shipping.
Foam cricket bat
This cricket bat is made from 100% high density foam and measures 24 inches in length. Although the paddle does not have a wood grain appearance, the orange color makes a great substitute. Daubed with some fake theatrical blood, it would make a great choice to complete a Shaun of the Dead cosplay.
To complete your Shaun of the Dead Costume for Halloween or a cosplay event you could choose to add a few splashes of theatrical blood which you can find in our Makeup Section. During the Siege of the Winchester, Shaun’s head is injured by a rogue dart thrown by Diane. At this point Shaun ties his tie around his head as a bandage, taking on a distinctly rambo motif. This would be a great alternative costume look for Shaun, which you could match with a pool queue or Winchester rifle if you have one handy! We think this Toy Repeater Rifle is just the job!
This is the original shirt and tie (with red on it) worn by Simon Pegg who played Shaun Riley in the Movie. This shirt can be found on display at the Museum of Pop Culture, 325 5th Avenue North, Seattle Center, Seattle, WA 98109-4630 (Formerly EMP Museum ).
