Zombies VS Humans photos and more!

We had a GREAT time at the Zombies VS Humans event on August 30th. We had approximately 30 people come to event in full zombie and defending human gear. The zombie makeup that some of the flashmobbers showed up was amazing. This is how the zombie attack went down:

We started about halfway between the Sam Houston statue and water fountains. There were two groups, one on each side. Each group was chased by the zombies and defended themselves with their fierce water guns. We all ended up at the fountains at the end of the pond. The zombies surrounded the humans and almost over took us. After a brief truce was called and the humans realized the zombies just wanted hugs, we all hugged than sang “Why Can’t We Be Friends”. At which time the zombies quickly turned upon the singing humans and tore them to shreds in an act of total backstabbery.

All in all we had a really good time and the people hanging out in the parked seemed really confused and enamored at the same time. It was fantastic.

I hope you enjoy the pictures. I want to thank James (Http://www.Twitter.com/crossmage) for taking photos. We’ll be editing a video as well and have it up soon. Be sure to check out the t-shirts that were inspired by the event below as well.

See you at the next event!!

I’d also like to answer some reoccurring questions:
1: No, people will not being having their clothing “totally torn off”.

Beta: Only people who wish to become a zombie during the event will be converted

Three: Zombies don’t need to have any particular make-up or special clothing. Just look funky and act like a zombie ;).

Quatro: If you are unable to attend you are more than welcome to invite people in your absence, in fact we encourage it!

Finally, when everyone arrives there will be the full set of instructions before the event beings. Plus, a super secret surprise ending!

That’s about it! We really look forward to seeing you there!

March 23rd event now on the 30th.

Hello, everyone. I just realized the 23rd was Easter Sunday, so we’re going to push the event a week back. I hope you’re enjoying your weekend!

Clarification for March 30th event at the Galleria

Hello everyone!
I hope you are enjoying your Friday evening and getting ready for an excellent weekend.

I wanted to clarify that the event on the 23rd is NOT a couples only event.. It is intended to be attended by married, single, dating or whatever type peoples. It’s not about “gettitng married” per say, it’s about acting out a common stereotype in a comical/interesting way. Feel free to bring a friend and be silly together. Even if you are married, (like my wife and I) you can of course participate :). No one is getting married, just having fun :).

I hope that brings some clarity and I look forward to seeing you all there!
