event ∙ Zombie Walk 2014

In photography by webmeister Bud

If my math isn’t off, this was the seventh Victoria Zombie Walk I’ve shot or otherwise witnessed. Each year, it’s fantastic to see everyone’s amazing creativity as they pay tribute to the undead.

As I’ve done in years past, I’m leaving the gore off this website, and will instead point you to the full gallery, on my Facebook: http://www.happydesigns.com/zombie2014/

On the gallery, however, I absolutely must showcase this amazing former human. She didn’t speak a word the entire time, only growling and staring at passers-by. In character zombies are the best zombies.

One of my hopes going into this walk was to find a bride and groom to do up a wedding pose for me. Just a funny thought for a wedding photographer. Well, I found a bride and bride, which was just as fantastic.

But then, imagine the horror when a REAL newlywed couple was wandering the grounds of the Legislature looking for cool backdrops to their wedding photos.

It honestly took a bit of cajoling to get them to step into the horde but, when they did, it made for a hell of a photo.

Thanks for limping through another Zombie Walk with me.
