A Monstrous Good Time Coming My Way

I’ve been getting geared up for the upcoming Spooky Empire Ultimate Horror Weekend in Orlando Florida on Oct 7-9, 2011. Even though I wasn’t granted an official press pass (oh, well!) by TPTB at Spooky Empire, I will still be attending the convention on behalf of SciFi4Me.com and will attempt to garner interviews and/or quotes with some of the guests as I can. I’ll also be live-tweeting (as possible) from the 3-day event, and you can be sure I will be taking an ENORMOUS amount of photos of all the spooky horrors I will be privileged to see!
One event occurring that weekend that I am very excited about witnessing first-hand is the ZombieWalk pre-show opener on Friday afternoon. Zombies of all shapes, sizes, and various stages of undead-ness will be marching down International Drive in this annual parade. The Walk is sponsored by the Deadite Empire, known as Florida’s premiere zombie social club, and is open to anyone who wants to participate. Make-up artists will be on hand to apply paint, make-up, prosthetics, and buckets of blood so that all walkers can look like proper corpses. Movie makeup magic is a particular interest of mine, so I plan to go to the Walk locale early to talk to as many of the participants as I can and try to get some shots of folks being made up for the walk.
