10/13 Saturday: Corpus Christi Zombie Walk
You've got your makeup and clothes ready...now it's time to get your walk on. You can't talk the talk if you can't walk the walk.
Note: we're talking "I was never going to wear this again anyway" torn and tattered. The blood mix we'll be using in a few steps is pretty permanent, so don't come knocking on our door torches blazing if you end up ruining your parent's prom dress.
First, squirt a dollop of white makeup onto a mixing plate, then add a dab of black makeup to the concoction. Mix the creams until they create a ghoulish gray paste, adding or subtracting as necessary until your mix looks suitably soulless. Use a photo of Kim Kardashian's eyes for reference as needed.
Now, find a cup or bowl and mix one part water with three parts corn syrup. Stir for a bit, then add a few drops of red food coloring until the liquid is a spooky crimson hue. Squeeze additional droplets of blue, green, and yellow food coloring as needed and mix well until the satisfaction of making a big ol' batch of artificial blood sets in. If the mix is too diluted for your particular tastes (you weirdo), then add a spoonful of corn starch in and mix until thickened.
Optional: tweet about how you just spent your afternoon making fake blood and you just don't understand why you can't get a girlfriend sad face =(
Smear that gray goop on your face, neck, hands, and any other exposed bits of flesh. (This goes double for you, "sexy" zombies.) Add dabs of black makeup around your eyes to get that nice, hollow look going, and add flecks on your cheeks as needed to create a good "sunken-in" effect. If you're Lindsay Lohan, skip that last part as it would just be redundant.
Now, find your fake blood and dab it across your clothing and/or on your face for an extra brutal effect. If you really want to go for that "blood spatter" look, then pour some of your blood mix into a spray bottle and spritz away.
And there you have it: you've just completed your incredibly convincing transformation into a full-fledged member of the flesh-starved undead hordes! Unless, of course, you meet an actual zombie on the way to your office party. Which would just be terribly awkward.
But alas, we can only give you the basic embellishments for your journey into zombie-hood; it falls to you to really sell your undead affliction. Just remember, every zombie worth its salt follows the three S's that every ghoul and ghost must abide by: stumble, stagger, and shamble.
Now, whether you're trick-or-treating on Halloween eve or wandering the halls of Comic-Con, go forth, keep calm, and zombie on!
This is a mounted zombie head hunting trophy from artist Andrew Martin of Monster Caesar Studios. As you can see, it's pretty life-like. Or, should I say, undead-like. The trophy is available for $400 and is, I dunno, not really the thing I want staring at me while I'm trying to get intimate with my lady.
Be sure to hit Andrew's website for pictures from all angles and shots of the build process as well as some of his other art including a worthwhile Salarian bust from Mass Effect.
You read the CDC's guide and you've got your zombie contingency plan in place. Or at least, you have one in your head. And you have plenty of duct tape around the house, so it shouldn't be a problem to throw together a kit when the time comes, right? Wrong. The last thing you want to do when the apocalypse hits is be delayed by something you could have prepped for. Because while you're prepping, other people are raiding the gun stores, hitting the highway, finding friends who will have their back, all of which is going to be really important, and all of which is going to suck if you're not one of the first people doing it.
Let us give you a leg-up on the competition with all sorts of useful gear already in a bag for easy carrying. Throw in your important paperwork, some water, your medications, and you're ready to hit the road at a moment's notice.
We think we found Ground Zero for the Corpus Christi Zombie Apocalypse. It's at Texas Toyz...
