* ''Very'' popular for participants in zombie flash mobs, horror conventions, and costume parties, who often want to be more memorable and/or conspicuous than "just another zombie".

* ''VideoGame/PlantsVsZombies'' has several examples. Common zombies all wear the remnants of a shirt, suit coat and tie, but the "special" zombies all are dressed in a way that identifies their particular attack method. The "dancing" zombie ''used'' to look like a ''Thriller''-era Michael Jackson, up until he died and his family requested that they change his appearance. He's now a "disco" zombie with bell-bottom pants and big hair. The crazy Jack-In-The-Box zombie wears a straightjacket and carries an exploding Jack-in-the-box with him. The [[IncrediblyLamePun Zomboni]] is a guy driving around a Zamboni, and the ice he lays down is used by Bobsled Zombies, who carry their bobsled with them and wear identical team uniforms, zombies who attack over water wear snorkels, digging zombies have carbide lamp helmets and so on....

* Naked zombies can be spotted all throughout ''ComicBook/TheWalkingDead'', as well as zombies dressed in unique clothes like suits, bulletproof riot gear, military and even a punk attire, complete with mohawk. Rick's first trip to Atlanta features several zombies with unique designs.

Most zombie encounters in fiction get their shock value from gore, ambush, or the pathos of seeing a named character arise from death to attack the surviving cast. But [[SlidingScaleOfComedyAndHorror not every horror scene takes itself that seriously]]; sometimes, when pacing or tone demands a tension-breaker, filmmakers will toss in the visual gag of a zombie that's dressed in an ironic or amusing outfit: a Halloween costume, an unusual profession, [[FullFrontalAssault nothing at all]], etc.

Added DiffLines:

** One of the walkers encountered while searching for Sophia at a rural church was an old woman in a mourning veil. It's slower to attack than the others because its vision is impaired, and gropes blindly for any source of noise until Daryl hacks it up.


Added DiffLines:

** When his quarantined patients start turning, Hershel warns Maggie ''not'' to shoot Henry's walker because it's still wearing the resuscitator bag Hershel needs to save Glenn.

* There are a few examples in ''Film/ShaunOfTheDead'', although perhaps 'distinctively dressed' would be the better description. The first zombie Shaun and Ed interact with is dressed in a supermarket uniform, complete with name-badge. Also qualifying is Zombie!Tyres - a zombified cameo of ''Series/{{Spaced}}'' character Tyres, in his full, brightly coloured bicycle-courier gear (and cap) amongst the otherwise drab dead walking the streets.
