More Zombies

Just a few more shots. The special effects really deserve close ups, maybe next year…..

I actually prefer this version, it’s a little more elegant than the previous one and the composition is tighter/better balanced.

She hulued the entire parade….fit I mean seriously fit…..the best part of her costume were her white contacts….too cool.

These guys had the best body language, they had that zombie shamble perfected.

The spike in her head was just brilliant and the kid’s make up was nicely understated. The small touches really made it work – the bit of blood on her collar, the dirt on her sleeve, the leaves on the mom’s shirt. It took you a minute to realize there was something off about the way they looked. And seriously how cool is it to have your mom take you to Zombie Fest and do such awesome make up.

That was an embarrassing number of typos. Argh. Hopefully I caught them all.

Coming soon – iding frogs, a brief primer…….

Zombie Fest, Rosendale, NY

Rosendale had a Zombie Fest, compleat with parade and kick ass bands, to benefit the Food Pantry. I was blown away by the expertise of some of the make up and really amused by the cross section of people who participated. Who would think zombies could be such a unifying force. The costumes make shooting in bright sun a little problematic, the white/grey flesh gets difficult to read and it’s hard to high light the special effects while the zombies are on the move, portraits will probably be a better way to go next year and picking a better (more interesting) vantage point for the parade. Ah well live and learn.

The music was really fun, lots of drummers and a few horns in the ‘marching/sauntering’ band and later great punk music.

It’s remarkable how quickly kids learn to ‘ham it up’ for the camera.

Men find the oddest excuses to wear dresses.
As one can see a good time was had by all. Hopefully next year with better planning I’ll get more photos.
