PROFESSIONAL ZOMBIE MAKEOVERS!
For zombies who want to look their bloody best we will have a ZOMBIE FX ARTIST'S ALLEY on the Boardwalk where ghouls can get a professional makeover for a nominal fee. This fee is to cover the cost of the artist's makeup supplies and their hard work. Since every zombie wants a different look, and some looks are more time consuming than others to apply this year there will be 3 different kinds of zombie makeovers available:
$10 BASIC ZOMBIE MAKEOVER:
Consists of a deadening of the skin, sinking of the eyes and cheekbones, with a few small wounds or blood marks. Generally speaking this would be a 'freshly dead' look.
$25 GROSS ZOMBIE MAKEOVER:
Building on the basic zombie look with more wounds, latex gashes, gore, etc. Attaching of small prosthetics (for sale at the walk or you can bring one from home). This is more of a 'rotting dead' or 'zombie victim' look.
$40 TOTAL ZOMBIE MAKEOVER:
This is if you really want to look disgusting. Applying of larger prosthetics (again please bring your own), extra wounds on arms/legs can be added, and embellishing of the zombie facial features. This tier is for zombies who truly want to look their worst!
Get ready for the largest gathering of the undead!
