Red, White and Dead regains world record
Your humble Warning Signs host was one of 4,522 zombies at Red, White and Dead, the annual zombie walk in Seattle. I got a little sunburnt, helped a friend with an interesting video project (more information on that once video editing is completed), and had a great time.
Let's look at a few photos, shall we?
There wasn't a cloud in the sky over Seattle Saturday, so the asphalt at the Fremont Outdoor Cinema was good and warm. These brave souls piled up before rising to walk again. (And yes, that is zombie Batman in the bottom left corner.)
The trick to a pile of dead bodies is seeing how long you can go without visibly breathing. You try it. It's not as easy as it sounds.
The guy next to him, with his head in the middle of his chest, was one of the more popular people to get a photo with. Great frigging costume.
And this is the end of this post. I have more photos for another time, and I may slap a video up on here. Until then, I'd like to thank Marshall Popham, Alia Daum, Mira Daum, Ryan Reiter, Seattle Transit, Greyhound, all the good people at the Zombie Research Society and my wonderful wife Savannah for making this weekend possible.
The 2011 Red, White and Dead zombie walk reached 4,522 zombies. Keeping the record could be difficult. Make plans now for 2012.
