2009 Vancouver Zombie Walk

goregirlAnother zombie walk come and gone. There was a huge turnout this year. It seemed like twice as many zombies as last years event. The weather was perfect as predicted. This years route took us down Robson Street to Denman and then ended at Beach Avenue. They actually stopped traffic and blocked off streets, which they didn’t do the previous year. The people in cars and
buses waiting for the huge mass of the undead to slowly amble their way down the street, actually looked pretty entertained. Although, I’m sure the group in the airporter bus, on their way to catch a flight, were probably less than impressed. After the walk was over we spent the afternoon drinking on the Patio at the Speakeasy on Davie Street. The staff there are great and we were treated to a round of shooters. We were the only zombies at the bar and were quite the spectacle. A group of Japanese tourists asked if they could have their picture taken with us. What can I say, I kinda dug the attention! I was personally disappointed in my own costume (that’s me in the black dress and boa). I looked more vampire than zombie, but after an hour and a half of gacking myself up, there was no turning back. I’ll be better prepared next year, and I’ll be doing the liquid latex thing for sure! I must get me a pair of those awesome cloudy white contacts! Below are some of my favorite shots from the day.
zombie crowd 2Look at all those zombies! It almost brings a wee tear to my eye!
zombie eatingThis guy is film worthy! Delightfully gory!!
zombie renassianceLovely!
zombie gouged eyesI am completely digging this gouged out eyes look! Very inventive!
zombie crawlingWe did a few “action shots” and I thought this one looked pretty nifty.
zombie mom and childThe child zombies are just so damn adorable! This little girl with her teddy was one of my favorites.
zombie yellow eyesFantastic! Love the yellow eyes!
zombie in treesYou never know where the undead might be hiding. It’s best to avoid heavy brush.
zombie nursesSexy undead nurses are always a crowd pleaser.
zombie crowdWe were pretty much walking in the centre of the mass. The first crowd shot we took from the front and this is the shot when we turned around. Tons and tons of zombies!
zombie pixieI’m calling her a zombie pixie, but not sure if that is what she was going for. Thought it was a pretty cool looking getup regardless.

    Looking good, Goregirl! You give off that very rare cute-zombie vibe! Very scary! On a serious note, though, please don’t eat me alive. If you do, I’m totally taking you off my blogroll! 🙂 lol

  2. Awesome pics! I can’t wait till we get the zombie walk rolling, or shambling, out here. Just a few more weeks to wait.

    • I can’t believe you have George Romero addressing your zombies! You Toronto people are such show offs!! I look forward to seeing your pics! You gotta get the kids out! They’ll love it!

  3. I don’t know about the kids anymore. We went to Fan Expo this year and when they saw the horror stuff they started crying, now they aren’t as interested to go to the zombie walk as they were before. I must break them of this cycle of fear!
