Only the undead are awarded

Author: DeadMason | Filed under: Contests, Costuming & Makeup, Event Info

Only a few of you lucky undead will lumber away with FABULOUS CASH AND PRIZES!!! Just kidding. There’s no cash. However, we will have a some rather neat prizes and a token trophy to show you that, even though we hunger for human flesh and brains like you, we care.

Here are the categories we’ll be judging. Prizes will be awarded at the pre-walk meet up.

  1. Most Disgusting. Yes it may seem easy to acquire, but you’ll find difficulty in really grossing us out for this one.
  2. Best Couple/Group Theme. Crazed Ghoul Scouts, Beetlejuice and Lydia, Undead ex-Circuit City Employees. All fantastic. You can do better, right?
  3. Best Pop Culture Theme. (TV/Movie/Comic/Gaming) Plants vs. Zombies, The Walking Dead, Star Trek. You get it.
  4. Best Zombie Kid. If there’s one thing that really gets under people’s skin, it’s gross undead children. They’re like rats. They don’t know they’re repulsive. They just are.
  5. 2013 Zombie of the Year (Best Overall) If you’re classically gross, have a witty theme or are pulling off the compound fracture so well you make everyone cringe, you may get the most coveted prize of the event.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone at their bloody best on Saturday, October 26th at 1pm at The Landing at Byrd Park. Check us out at our site’s Event Info page or on our Facebook event page for all of the gory details!

Shop smart, Shop S-mart (but not really)

Zombie gear at ThinkGeek.com


Admit it. You are a fan of meat. The dead kind that walk around and try to kill you and the kind that smells awesome sizzling in a pan right next to some scrambled eggs.

I often wonder where I can acquire these two kinds of things in a  one-stop shopping experience. Well my friends, Think Geek has got you covered in this regard. They have taken the horror of salted pig flesh and humor of dead people and combined them into a special corner of the internet called “Zombies & Bacon” right over at ThinkGeek.com!

So after you bash some poor sucker of a zombie in the brains with your new Dead On Annihilator Superhammer, you’re going to need to get rid of that virus-ridden stank with a Bacon Scented Air Freshener.

Get you some at ThinkGeek.com. Yup. You’re welcome.

Richmond Zombie Walk Posters are here! Kind of.

Richmond Zombie Walk poster collection 2010-2013

If you’ve been dragging yourself around with us longer than 4 years, you may remember that we used to hold a poster design contest every year. The winner’s art would become that year’s official promotional image . We’ve had great ones over the years, but at the start of the contest in 2010 an early submission from Abigail Larson caught our attention and we’ve been great admirers ever since.

Abigail has been generous enough to create one for us every year since she won the contest in 2010. You could say she’s our Grand Champion. We’re proud to feature her work on almost everything we do and because of numerous inquiries we began offering them at each event. The response was tremendous. It became immediately obvious that Richmond also loves Abigail’s work.

This year all of the posters from 2010 to 2013 will be available again. If you’re brave enough to come to the official event this year on Saturday, October 26th, you can pick them up at the pre-walk meet up spot at The Landing in Byrd Park’s Boat Lake starting at 1p (Additional event details). You can get them separately ($5 each) or all of them in a 4-pack ($15). Like our $5 participant donations, all of the profits from the posters will go to the American Cancer Society. Each poster is printed in full color on an 11″ x 17″ textured heavyweight stock which is suitable for framing.

Aaaaand if you don’t appear to be a threat to her, Abigail will be attending and will autograph posters before the walk.

Posters are only available on the day of the event and are not available online (yet), but if we have leftovers we’ll keep you posted.

In the meantime, tell the world you’re feasting on brains with the Richmond undead at our 9th Anuual Richmond Zombie Walk Facebook Event Page and keep up with the latest/last-second details by following us on Twitter @rvazombiewalk.

You can also keep up with Abigail Larson at AbigailLarson.com.

See you at the main event!
