China Halloween cosplay help

Hello! My friends and I are doing a Halloween version Hetalia group, and we need some help with China's costume x.x; as you can see in the image, it has some kanjis in the hat and on the sleeves, and none of us knows how to read kanji or even recognize them, so if anyone knows what they are, can you please tell me so we can make them properly? Thanks very much~ x.x

just letting you know to be proper, Kanji is for Japanese characters, hanzi is what they call chinese characters.

the best bet would be to do your best to interpret it how you think it looks

Ohh... I see... I didn't know that, thanks o.O;;;
The problem is since I don't really know any of them, I can't really make out properly what they are, and we don't just wanna put something random there x.x; thanks anyways x.x

If your computer sees chinese characters, it says: 殭屍 which means zombie in chinese. On his hat, at least. 屍 is on his right (our left) sleeve... i can't see enough of the right sleeve to know what it says.

If you can't see the hanzi very well, open it in Word and change the font to be bigger c:

The one on his left sleeve... I think is 骸 which means skeleton....
I'm not 100% sure because there are a lot of hanzi that have 骨 on the left side.

She got it right. c:

And the hanzi on the paper on his forehead are just randomly scribbled out characters.
Chinese zombies have these curses sticked onto their forheads, and they're written in strange ancient writing. >w>

The rochu made me fap/shot
