Well it’s that time of year again. It’s mid-October and the Brisbane Zombie Walk is almost upon us. Literally every single thought that goes through my heard involves zombies in some way. There’s less than two weeks to go and I’m madly trying to sort out all of the permits (you don’t want to know how many we need, it’s insane) and all of the final details that will make this walk the most professional yet. It’s amazing how much we learn each year. I’m sure that even after doing this for 10 years, I will keep on finding new ways to make it run better. But we’re getting there and since my stress levels are relatively low right now, I feel confident in saying we’re doing pretty well. So that’s why my posts have been few and far between. I don’t feel the need to bore you to death with zombie-this and zombie-that for an entire month. But I did wnat to share a few things that might be of interest for the zombie-inclined:

First of all, how cute are our shirts this year? I am super proud of the design and they look AMAZING in real life! I got a couple of singlets printed as I hate wearing t-shirts, but they’re just for the female organisers, not for the public. Hopefully next year! Want one? Buy them here!

The QLD Police launched a new site called QldAlert which will compile all of their social media for a handy one-stop shop when there’s an emergency or major event. And to test it out, they made it all about a zombie outbreak. Told ya’ll the QPS had our backs!

My favourite Brisbane artist Lauren Carney has made special shirts for the walk, and is giving us half the proceeds! I am so exited, especially since the bag she had with this design at the last markets I saw her at had sold out :( Yay for cute zombies!

And finally, check out the cutest engagement photoshoot ever! (Yes, it involves zombies)

My friend's brother in law is getting a zombie-themed surprise party at the end of this month, and I need ideas!

I've never dressed as a zombie before and would love some links to the best makeup tips, and I also wanted to know if you had any great ideas for what kind of zombie I should be. (one friend suggested a 50's zombie with a beehive 'do but my hair isnt really long enough and I dont want to buy a wig).

You're the expert! Any tips, Cara? :)

The fun thing about zombies is that ANYONE or ANYTHING can be a zombie. I went as a Steampunk zombie last year, a ballerina the year before and a flapper the year before that. My favourite one was nerd zombie where I had a calculator embedded in my head (we carefully cut a scientific calculator in half and attached it to a headband with wire and covered the headband with thick blood and gore.

Makeup is crazy easy, the fake blood I like the most is the chocolate one here: as it's easy, edible, cheap, and realistic! Oh and it doesn;t stain (in my experience). Give it a practice go and use corn flower to thicken it up a bit for gorier effects. It doesn't keep long so make it a couple of days beforehand and refrigerate it before use. Build up the thicker stuff to make wounds with runnier stuff oozing out to make it fresh and extra gross.

I've just started using liquid latex for wounds which also takes a bit of practice but there are so many cool tutorials on youtube and it's not that hard at all, really.

Let me know if you need any other ideas, as I have tonnes :D

My friends page is getting really quiet, so I'm on the search to meet new LJ folk.

We have some interests in common, so we might get along. I've added you as a friend so you can read my journal (It isn't all that interesting, but it's my little life). If you want to add me back, awesome. If not, that is ok as well. The ball is in your court. Go!
