Zombie Walk Wrapup... [Oct. 7th, 2010|09:43 pm]
Verminius Rex
Wow, there was probably about the same crowd as last year (last year's guesstimate was 400, this year's official count was 377 but I figure a dozen or two escaped tagging or joined the walk further down the street). What was amazing was that there were more kids (not a ton but many more than last year), and a whole lot more spectators. The sidewalks were lined with them, which actually slowed progress on the way down Mass Street due to less room, the way back on the other side of the street was faster due to fewer lookie loos and I suspect walkers were also cutting out earlier or finding a place to kick back with friends.

Overall a good crows, although still a few folks were making messes or acting out a bit more than they should have. I was helped with the tagging by Maggie early on (who handed them out darn fast), and the entire time by Marjorie (whom I finally got to chat with in person, since we did the walk together after I misplaced my family). Marjorie did the bulk of tagging the undead, which I give her full credit for. I figure that Maggie and I did about a sheet of stickers each (60 per sheet), Marjorie did about 3 sheets and some change. Possibly four, I can't remember.

There were some great costumes. I saw at least one Evil Dead Ash, chainsaw hand and everything, and one Shawn of the Dead. I was thinking that doing a Beetlejuice suit and teasing up my hair would have been cool, but didn't think of it in time.

Two kids are bathed and asleep, Marz is in the shower. I caked my hair with leave in conditioner for a stringy look, can't wait to wash that out. I have some pics to upload, but that may wait until tomorrow. I know I'll find some online soon.  

Edit-almost forgot to also thank James for the use of his booming voice for making announcements and such.

It was fun getting to do the walk for the first time tonight and I was more than happy to help tag zombies. As you can probably tell now, I like using my outdoor voice to get people to pay attention. (Thank you ren-faire for teaching me to project)I'm sure there will be plenty of pics online, just have to figure out where.

Over the next week look on flickr and facebook, and I think that we'll be linking them back to the website.

My muscles are more sore than they should be for a simple walk up and down Mass Street. Thanks for being my walk buddy and zombie tagger.
