And so it came to pass that the undead hordes descended on Brisbane to march through it’s heart demanding brains and donations to the Brain Foundation of Australia. It was a huge event that was aiming to break the world record on most zombies in one place, so far there’s been no official word on if that record was made but it did seem like there were a lot more shuffling creatures this year than previous.
It was, as always, a hell of a lot of fun. I normally don’t take photos of people but since zombies are ex-people this works out nicely. None of these photos are award winners but they do show the inventiveness and spirit of the attendees to this fine charity event.
Huge thanks to the Brisbane Zombie Walk organisational team, the police that oh so patiently dealt with hundreds of zombies screaming for brains in the CBD (it was actually a scarily impressive moment) and of course the hundreds of zombies themselves of all types including many children and pets.
My personal favorite of the day was the Mr Squiggle zombie, complete with the words “I told you to hurry up” written on blood on his back. A fantastic Australian pop culture reference, I for one sir salute you for your brilliant concept.
Below are some of my favorite shots from the day but you can find the full gallery here (118 photos). Happy to provide full copy originals to those that ask.
