It’s been a long weekend, and although I can say I’m glad that it’s over, I had an awesome time.
Friday night was the premiere of 28 Weeks Later, so Casey and I headed into New York’s Union Square in full zombie makeup and torn clothing to take part in the festivities put together my my old roomate, Action Vance from Zombie NYC.
We got there and found about 40 other zombies torturing innocent bystanders and eating Brains. (Props to the people who brought the brains! lol). Aside from zombies, were personnel from Fangoria, Village Voice, and other random photographers, videographers, etc… After just hanging out in Union Square for a while, we headed down the block to the theatre where we saw the movie. From what I’m told, it was not as scary as the first one (I havent seen it), but it was pretty good. I enjoyed it.
We then headed out to the Black Bear Loge, a small bar on 3rd Ave. We were the first zombies there, so we were welcomed by a small crowd of regulars and the bar staff. The night was a lot of fun, as everyone [who wasn’t afraid of us] was very friendly and social. The place actually got pretty busy as the night went on. Lots of brains, leering, and drinking happened that night. A few pictures too…
By the way, if anybody has pictures from the event, and especially any of me, please email me a link or the pictures themselves. Thanks!
I think the fact that we were dressed head-to-toe zombie made it a more unique night. A few people came up to me and Casey, after passing many other zombified people asking about the event. We must have looked like the poster children of the thing. It was good times though.
