This is just what I needed after watching Shark Week last night – where I watched footage of a man’s calf actually being bitten off by a bull shark. And then today, we watched some episodes of people climbing Mount Everest and saw what frost bite looks like. Oof. I needed some fake blood and guts to cleanse the palette after all that reality TV.
Today was the Zombie Walk downtown at the Vancouver Art Gallery. There was a mammoth crowd today. I haven’t been for a couple of years, so the increase was very noticeable.
Packed! With zombies and lookie-loos like me! I never get dressed up for these things, but I did wear my Edgar Allen Poe shirt that says, “All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.” and someone did get some fake blood on my shorts, so I sort of fit in.
While at this event, I saw the world’s ugliest baby:
I found a zombie dad & daughter:
The dad actually looks familiar to me. If anyone knows who these two are, please let me know.
And, I found another zombie baby. A real, live, zombie baby with her mom.
Wow. I wonder what their house is like? The Munsters’ place? Or maybe their style is more steampunk, oldie time doctors office? It’s really hard to tell with zombie people.
I found Leatherface – but I don’t think Leatherface is a zombie, but more like a human monster. Either way, this costume is pretty amazing.
And while I was walking back to the car, I spotted this guy:
He’s a video game character. I’d give this guy the “Best Dressed” award. The similarity is eery. He looks exactly like the illustration.
