On next saturday there will be a zombie walk in my city, and I will be one of the make up artists who will zombificate 50 people who booked their place on the list in time.
(You must have been living under a rock if you don't know what a zombie walk is. It's very simple: a bunch of people dress up like zombies and slouch through the streets downtown grunting and moaning. It's funny to see the reaction of "normal" people who have no idea of what is happening!) Here's one of the viral videos the organizers created to promote the event.

I usually do bodypainting, while they were looking for someone who could create special effects like wide bleeding wounds. They saw my little portfolio and said bodypainting was ok too, but I didn't want my works to be visibly too different from the others, so I asked some advices to the "chief" of the make up artists, and she could just tell me how to create fake blood and skin edges, without showing me how to do that. So a couple of days ago I made an attempt to check how long would have taken to me to do a make up with these new tecniques I didn't know in addition to the ones I generally use. It took 20 minutes and it was very succesfull to be the first attempt ever.

Now tell me: did they ever organize a zombie walk in the place you live? Did you take part or would you if they'll ever organize one?
