So this weekend is ZombieNYC. A bunch of zombified individuals are gathering in New York City to wreak havok during the rush hour and then head off to watch “Another 28 Weeks”. Afterwards, meeting in a local bar to enjoy brain hemmorages and other zombie-loved beverages.
Casey and I started working on our costumes. We headed to the Thrift store to pick up some nice clothing that we won’t feel bad about ruining for the zombie cause. I picked up a white(ish) button-down shirt, dress pants and a sport jacket. It cost me under $20 for the whole thing. Casey came over last night and brought some paints and makeup picked up from Wal-Mart. Tiffany joined us and had a look of sheer horror on her face as I took to my new Ralph Lauren sport jacket with a butterfly knife and scissior. Hey, it only cost me $7!
After tearing up the shirts and pants, we began painting blood on. We made two shades of red paint and covered the garb around the tears and smeared it around other areas as well, especially the collar and chest (Blood drips down all over you when you eat brains!)
We ran out of paint so I’m going to swing by Wal-Mart later and pick up some more. I’m also going to swing by Party City and see if they have any leftover zombie makeup from halloween. We were going to use the acrylic paint, but once it dries I think it’ll crack too much. I’m going to see what I can find as an alternative and use it as a backup.
I’ll try to get some pictures up at some point.
