So believe it or not, I've never dressed up as a zombie before and I got the chance to do it, on skates!

My roller derby team is heavily involved with our local "Zombiefeast" film festival and zombie-filled weekend so I figured it was time to jump head first into undead territory. I bought a family pack Halloween makeup kit and a whole lot of blood and, with suggestions from some of my team-mates, used the liquid latex it came with and some toilet paper to get the peeling skin texture and bloody wounds. I tore up a cheap t-shirt and wore basically what I wear to practice in and had my husband whip handfuls of fake blood at me. It was tons of fun.

I shambled up about a half-mile or so and even participated in the Thriller dance-off on my skates. Now I just want to wear them everywhere I go!

You're makeup is awesome! Reminds me of the new series we are watching called The Walking Dead.  I live near Monroeville, Pa and they have a "Zombie Walk" at the mall every year (it's the mall where Dawn of the Dead was filmed).  If we tried it on skates, there may be some injuries Smiley  Awesome job!

I recognized your pic from a blog that covers local happenings. Your costume is fantastic and it makes me regret not being able to go....oh well there is always next year.

my team did the same thing! but the city wouldn't let us wear our skates. chucks were the alternate footwear of choice, for the most part.

your makeup looks great. Smiley
