Marwan Kheireddine is a Hollywood-based costume designer known for designing costumes in some of Hollywood’s biggest productions, such as “Fifty Shades Darker” and “The Hunger Games.” He has created a multipack of his most recent work, which includes an Emoji costume. He says, “Everyone knows how to use an Emoji, so I decided to design the Emoji costume for zombie walkers this year.”
He originally designed the costume for a high school student named Stephanie who wanted something fun and eye-catching. In his research, he found out that many teenagers use emojis, so he decided it would be perfect as a costume.
“It’s bright, colorful, and people will try to figure out what it is! I’m sure there are some parts of it that they won’t understand. The idea was to have all kinds of crazy emojis in different colors and expressions. I just wanted to do something fun and something that people could identify with,” said Kheireddine.

There are a total of six different costumes in the package: a zombie look down, a zombie walker on all fours, the guy behind the zombie wearing EmojiCostumes.com sunglasses, two additional female zombies, and an emoji king costume that is an undershirt and pants combo you can wear with other outfits.
“I wanted it to be ‘cool’ because if you’re going out in public wearing this, it’s not safe. It’s a little bit of a risk, so it’s got to be a good quality product,” he said.
Kheireddine created and designed the costumes in the last six months and even worked with his friend, Jared Hyman, from the group $ocial Pictures. The group includes Hyman, Tristan Kelly, Matt Keeley, and Ben Nodler. Together they are called $o$k4d4th and have created over 200 outfits for characters such as zombies.
One of the other costumes in the package is an emoji king costume that you can wear with a hoodie which makes it “kinda cool because you can wear it with any outfit.
