Denver Zombie Crawl 2013
In Denver every year thousands of people descend on the 16th Street mall in their own unique zombie costumes. This was my second year enjoying the festivities.
Zombie Crawl Poem
Tattered clothes, darkened stares
Bloody limbs and random scares
Gruesome forms walk with limps
Fear filled visions in every glimpse
Zombie hordes gather in mass
Downtown streets at an impasse
Undead soldier, undead nurse
Gathering of the diverse
Slowly strolling down the path
Parade of thousands at the mall
Another successful zombie crawl
This Year (8th Annual Zombie Crawl)
Judging from the crowd I would have to say that there were at least 9-10 thousand people that showed up.
I put a little more effort into my costume this year. I bought some old scrubs from GoodWill and splattered them with (fake) blood. I used a latex attachment to represent the bite that turned me into a zombie and I painted on blood and other details.
Pictured to the right are examples of what I did. This was all done with a pretty modest budget but still had just the right amount of effect. The clothes only cost me about $6 and the "bite" was also about $6. I already owned the paints so in the end it was a pretty cheap costume.
