For living and non-living alike it is always a good idea to know who your stumbling along with.Post or view comments
For those who have stumbled along the gravestones (and a few of the living) know ammunition is the key. We fear it and knowledgeably rejoice in the perfect firepower solution. This may be the product for you.

For the past couple of years we have been fortunate enough to have Abigail Larson create amazing zombified event posters. This year she has out done herself again with our rotten little friend above. So with that, the event is officially official.
Like last year we will have prints available for $5 each at the pre-walk meetup on Saturday, October 27th at 1pm at Byrd Park out by Boat Lake.
Not only that, if you missed getting our 2011 and 2010 Richmond Zombie Walk poster, we’ll have those too.
AND Abigail will be there to sign them if you want. How horribly fantastic!
The Richmond Zombie Walk also has official stuff online that you can’t get anywhere else.. T-shirts, sweatshirts, etc. although this isn’t about us!
There isn’t an emoticon for this, but we [bloody] <3 Abigail.Post or view comments
Once you start to get into this whole “zombie thing”, you tend to see it everywhere. There’s this one sweet spot where I can find anything to satisfy my geekiness. ThinkGeek.com is that golden sparkle on the far end of the www’s out there that you could seriously get lost in for hours. Hell, you might even buy something.
What I wanted to point out is that they have soft, decayed spot for zombies as well. So much that they have their own section on their site for such wonderfully dead things. AND, if that wasn’t enough, they put it together with all of their bacon-themed goods. How efin’ rad is that?
Anyhoo, I am eyeballing this one item. It’s basically a zombie head cookie jar. I don’t even have to explain. The idea is already awesome, right? Just look!
Go get you some Zombies and Bacon already.Post or view comments
Oh how the time flies when you’ve got nothing to do but pick maggots out your own rotting flesh.
RICHMOND, WE COME FOR YOU!
After months of scavenging for rodents along the sewers of the James River, your zombie masters have returned to the surface and are hungry for human flesh and BRAAAAAINS.
Stay tuned for the latest
October 27th can’t come soon enough.Post or view comments

ok, my precious undead minions, we need a victim!
we need one of you who has not yet succumb to the outbreak to be willing to become an attack victim at the walk this saturday. please email email@example.com if you are interested.
One week from tonight on Thursday, October 27 starting at 10pm. Empire (727 West Broad Street, Richmond, VA) and RVA Mag will be hosting The Zombie Prom.
Complete with prom photos and an in-house make up artist just in case you you show up all gross and.. alive.
Consider this an official pre-game to the main event – 7th Annual Richmond Zombie Walk! So I will definitely be there.
See y’all then.
Come to the Richmond Fencing Club (3411 1/2 Carlton Street) on Wednesday October 26th at 9pm.
Got questions about obtaining that freshly torn flesh look without the use of a jagged knife? Do you know how to handle your infected wounds in case of a zombie attack? And above all, what will you wear?
At this year’s Zombie Workshop we’ll cover all the gory details.
….Zombie Flesh F/X//
With liquid latex, fake blood, and a little bit of patience you’ll see how simple it is to create amazingly realistic torn bleeding skin anywhere on your body. You do not want to miss this demo!
….Be a Zombie or Just Look Like One//
So do you need to actually need to crawl out of the ground to get that look? We’ll show you some tricks on how to achieve various stages of “deadness” and get those digs nice and grimy without the stank.. hopefully. And if you’ve got some cool tips to share, bring it! We highly encourage tip swapping.
We’ll get you straight before the big date.
That is all for now. My making rhymes is wasting time.

Joe Ripple, horror film director and retired police officer, is doing something really unique. Using horror-themed benefits, silent auctions, films and other events to help other charitable organizations like “Make-A-Wish”, the Johns Hopkins Children’s Cancer Center, and The Kennedy-Krieger Institute.
They’ve got some great things going on now. Check them out at ScaresThatCare.org

Our favorite local artist, Abigail Larson, will be showing her latest illustrations starting tonight (Friday, October 7) 6pm at Gallery 5 along with Jonathan Smith. Yay for First Fridays!
We have been fortunate enough to have Abigail create our event posters for the past 2 years. She really knows how to capture the spirit of our event and walk the fine line between the macabre and gross. Check out her 2011 poster and her 2010 poster.
So all of you Richmond undead should crawl out of the ditches, put down that half-eaten corpse and show Abigail some love. You may catch some of your rotting brethren there. *hint hint.
Abigail’s work will be on display until October 28, 2011.Post or view comments
Our pals at The Byrd Theater are hosting this amazing event on Saturday, October 29th starting at 11:00 am. (Yes, we realize it’s on the same day as our event, but now you have something to do before and after stretching your legs at the Richmond Zombie Walk. )
If you’re familiar with the original “Litter in the Aisles” video they play before every movie at the Byrd, then you’ll love this zombified parody of it. Can you spot your undead Zombie Walk masters DeadMason and GreyMatter? Bravo to the VCU Brandcenter students who created it.
