Zombie Walk Rules
These are mostly common sense, but here they are in case anyone is running a little short on common sense.
1. BE COURTEOUS TO OTHERS!
Don't harass or touch anyone who doesn't want to be involved. Remember that dressing funny doesn't give you a right to act like a jackass.
2. ABSOLUTELY NO VIOLENCE OR VANDALISM!
Zombie walks should be fun, peaceful events where the dead come back to be silly and weird. They are NOT excuses to run around in destructive mobs.
3. Don't leave any messes that need to be cleaned up.
No bloody hand prints on anyone's property or empty makeup/blood packaging or other litter scattered around. Refer back to rules #1 and #2.
4. You are your own zombie.
You are responsible for yourself and your actions. Don't do anything stupid.
5. Don't play in the street
Stay out of the way of moving vehicles. You should have learned this about the same time you learned to walk.
6. No weapons or anything resembling weapons!
7. No throwing candy or gifts at the spectators!
However, you can walk over and hand items to spectators. It's a safety thing. We will have a few candy bags if anyone wants to volunteer to hand out candy.
8. Groups should be spaced about 20 feet from each other!
9. Try not to get too far ahead or behind the bulk of your group!
Yes everyone will be moving at different speeds, but we want to try to stay in a big scary swarm instead getting all strung out
6. HAVE FUN!
But try not to do anything stupid that will ruin the fun for everyone else.
Have something to contribute? We like new information and techniques
Congratulations on choosing to be a zombie! Now we need to make you look the part. Hopefully, these pages will help point you in the right direction for creating the look you want.
Remember that you can be any kind of zombie you want and your costume and makeup can be as simple or as elaborate as you feel like dealing with.
As long as you look like some kind of corpse, IT'S ALL GOOD!
Frequently Asked Questions
A zombie wok?
No, mother. A zombie WALK.
What is a Zombie Walk?
A zombie walk is when a bunch of people get together to dress up as zombies and go wandering around in public. It involves a lot of makeup, fake blood, and stumbling around moaning for brains.
Zombie walks can range in size from a handful of corpses lurching down the sidewalk to thousands of the undead swarming through a stretch of the city. In recent years, the largest walks have been in Seattle, Toronto, and Grand Rapids.
They can be organized for just about any reason imaginable. Some are just for fun. Some are intended to contribute to some charity or even to promote other events. Exceptionally large walks are organized to break world records and gain bragging rights for the host city.
Come join us this Halloween, for the Colby Zombie Walk at the Ghouls Gone Wild Parade. You'll have a great time!
Because it's a lot of fun. duh…
What kind of zombie can I be?
You can be whatever type of zombie you want to be. For help getting ready, check out the HowTo pages or the Links if no one's gotten around to finishing the HowTos yet.
The "official" zombie model for Zombie Walk CCC is the viral spread plague from Max Brooks' books, The Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z. Following that model, the zombies are mindless eating machines that continue on no matter what injuries they have until the brain is destroyed, but if you want to say that you resurrected due to radiation, voodoo, bio-terrorism, or whatever else, that's your call. As long as you look unhealthy and act weird, you'll fit right in.
Tips for looking like the undead:
* Pale corpse-like skin
* Bruises and wounds
* Lots of blood
* Stumble around with limited coordination
* Moan horribly when you spot prey
How do I participate?
Step 1 No. Our Zombie Walk is Friday, October 29th, 2010 at 11:45 a.m. on the north end of the campus. A student organization can put together a group, or a bunch of friends can get together and form an organization or you can come stage. Pick a reason, a place, and a time. Try to schedule far enough in advance to make Step 2 successful.
Step 2 Spread the word and recruit zombies.
