The Zombie Apocalypse

On Sunday I faced my fears. It has been well documented on here that I hate velociraptors a lot, however an equal fear is that of zombies. I somehow got talked into attending ‘Zombie Walk’, ok, I was bribed with a movie. Every year in my city, people walk through the main streets dressed as zombies to raise money for brain cancer. This year there were an estimated ten thousand people aka TEN THOUSAND ZOMBIES!

The majority of people just wandered around covered in fake blood whilst chatting with their neighbour. We weren’t impressed with those people. There were a few zombies though that were dedicated to their craft and they freaked me out!

Some highlights were:

A funeral hearse being driven by zombies with the words “Just buried!” written on the side. And all the other zombies cheered as they drove past!

Zombie children, especially zombie babies being pushed in strollers.


Zombie dogs!


Zombie Ron Weasley


These two were my favourite!


No wait, this kid was my favourite.


As he walked past us, he cocked his shotgun, looked at us and raised his finger to his lips and went ‘shh’. Zombie survivor! I couldn’t stop laughing!!

Haha zombies are pretty terrifying. Makes me think of those 'Halloween' walks where people jump out at you. ::jump::

Oh my gosh! I am so jealous. I once saw this on another blog (last year?), and I thought it was THE coolest thing. Although, I admit, I would probably be quite scared if I was in attendance. :) Love the zombie biker, and that kid is tooooo cool. ;)
