booooo target

HAPPY OCTOBER! Tomorrow is the fifth annual Zombie Pub Crawl on the West Bank, Minneapolis. Though I’ve had my fill of BC zombie walks, this will be only my second ZPC (I am cool enough to have caught the inaugural). The tentative plan is to be a Longboarding Zombie, and to eat brains.

Tracking down supplies around town this afternoon (no gutty zombie this year… sorry folks), I was shocked to discover that Target doesn’t carry fake blood. Doubleyouteeeff?! How are you supposed to pull off your zombie deathlady vampire homicidal maniac ghoul without proper gore? On a happier note, K-Mart carries an animatronic ghost that dances to The Way I Are.

This pretty much makes up for everything, for all time.

As for Halloween proper, my favorite idea so far is Viper Violet, Airship Pilot. I usually go for something scary, but I found the baddest-ass airship pilot pants and vest, so, you know. Besides, the best fun had isn’t in putting on a costume, but becoming a character. …And she has a past.

Have a happy month, y’all. I hope to share some pics as they present themselves. 🙂

    Viper Violet Airship Pilot. Woot! I like this idea.

    You need a leather (Naugahyde?) helmet and some brass goggles.

    (Lighter than airhead gear …)

    I definitely need some beefy goggles–helmet’s optional. Got any steampunky accoutrement I could borrow? I think I’ll be in Fargo next weekend (!). I’m looking for brass and straps and possibly weaponry.

    Remember when we went as dead LMNP fans? I had to go to…Walgreen’s, I think, to finally find some fake blood for my head.

    I got some blood at Savers. There’s all kinds of blood at Savers.
