Join other zombies as we terrorize downtown in our search for delicious brains! We will meet at City Hall to organize our zombie invasion. If you show up still living be prepared to be eaten and turned into the undead.

The Austinist Article

There are really two ways to go here, freshly killed or decomposing corpse. A freshly killed zombie will look normal except for some obvious flesh wounds. A decomposing zombie will have been around longer and therfore be in a much worse condition. If you think of a backstory about who your corpse was and how they died it will make planning a costume easier. Be creative!

Bring your camera if you have one. We need lots of pictures to post on the website. We can also post our videos to YouTube and Google. If you have extra fake blood and makeup bring it along for someone else to use.

Learn to act properly. Zombies are slow, stiff, dim-witted, can't talk well, if at all, and crave human flesh.

* Make moaning and gasping sounds when you breathe through your mouth. It adds great effect. Your jaw should hang slack at most times. If you must make other noises, talk in gibberish or moan louder/higher. Moaning always works.

* Shamble, don't walk. Lean forward and almost fall with every step. Adding a limp or dragging one leg works great as well. Swing your arms limply, like you don't ever use them.

* When passing people, growl or groan at them and wave your arms. Some higher-level zombies tend to moan for "BRAAAIIINSSS!!!" as well.

* Be stupid. The average zombie has an IQ barely above freezing temperature. They will run into walls, trip, fall, and can't work with their hands.
