I am still recovering from Memorial Day weekend. Or rather, feeling the aftereffects in the form of a cold that refuses to bend to my will. My favorite part of the weekend (other than my parents being away and being able to drive myself around like a big girl)?

Definitely Saturday’s zombie walk. I went last year and was amazed by the incredibly detailed costumes and makeup. This year I was blown away by the amount of attendees. We’re talking hundreds, probably approaching 1,000 folks all dressed like flesh-eaters. It was quite the spectacle!

After the jump are some photos I took during the walk. Just to be all PC and shit: warning, these photos are not safe for work, small children, big babies, and those with a blood phobia.

    Holy shit! I’m so glad I was away this weekend. This would have given me nightmares. Don’t we get to see your costume? Hope you feel better soon! I think we had the same cold, and it takes forever to go away.

    I once was walking in the downtown area and I saw a lot of them and since I didn’t know their purpose, I thought that maybe they were going to a party  or were going to make a movie ha-ha. I found your blog and thought it was cool that you were from Boston or MA at least.
