Hey everyone, I'm back!
I've just about wrapped up a translation of a French historical non-fiction manuscript which goes to print in November. Lots of other interesting writing projects in the works as well.
In the midst of all this glorious writing, I managed to take time to participate in Lyon's annual Zombie Walk. Yes, you heard me right... Zombie Walk! Now, how fun is that?
First we went and had our makeup done by professional makeup artists who were on site.
Little old zombie moi...
... and my zombie friend.
Then, we gathered in a big square (roughly 400 zombies) where we learned a few zombie moves and shouts.
Some fellow zombies....
We walked from Croix-Rousse hill and finished at Place des Terreaux.
Zombie attack on the church of Scientology!
Ohhh, a fabulous male Snow White zombie, loved, loved, loved him!
Ok, this guy was super creepy!
Nice saw, zombie dude!
It was so much fun, so many people participated and were really into the whole zombie thing. The best part was keeping the zombie makeup on and strolling around town, totally freaked people out. Bien sur, we also wore our zombie makeup to a party that night--mwah-ha--and a fun time was had by all!
And here is a little zombie video for you all to bring you right into the ambience that was the Zombie Walk.
Bon, gros bisous des zombies et a bientôt!
