PSYCHO ZOMBIE BEACH


If you happened to be taking a stroll down the boardwalk in Asbury Park Saturday afternoon, you might have thought you stepped onto the set of a horror movie.Thousands of people came out from across the tri-state NJ and PA, to participate in the ghoulish gathering, Asbury Park's eleventh annual Zombie Walk, was this past weekend With their limbs limp and calling out their desires for brains, the "undead" showed off their affinity for all things horror as they shuffled and lumbered their way down the boardwalk to the center of downtown Asbury. While I have never attended, I'm not sure this is the Mistress's cup of tea.... although I have been asked by a friend to do a zombie Mistress Borghese!  My friend and ex co-worker  Manny and his husband,  and friend my Shana went , and sent me these pictures they took. Manny and his man did zombie mermen. Manny is very creative as he is a costume maker and does many a play...his latest being on off Broadway...and Shana is wicked with make up. When we worked together her make up was flawless everyday. She is probably the only one I'd trust to do my make up for drag if I didn't do it myself. But as a zombie she is scary as hell..
My friend Manny and his husband, and Shana above. YIKES!

Zombie Walks or Zombie parades have been around since 2003 when Thea Munster gathered a few friends together in Sacramento, California in the hopes of bringing back some of the more ghoulish elements of Halloween. It quickly became an annual event and soon spread to the rest of the country. Asbury Park has had its own special history with their Zombie Walk, breaking the Guinness World Record for the “Largest gathering of zombies”  on two separate occasions.

In 2010, Asbury claimed the title with 4,093 undead counted on the boardwalk, and again in 2013 with 9,592 participants.  No way would I go near this place.They scare the shit out of me. Weellllll….. I may let this one take a bite out of me....

or at least suck me some.

  2. I agree with Sixpence, above. The Pee-Wee Herman one and the Ruth Bader Ginsburg zombies are fantastic.

    How cool. Those are stunningly good zombies.

  5. I would probably go into cardiac arrest Mistress. You and I would have to find a drinking establishment for a stiffener.

  8. This is all the result of climate change, right? The makeup and costumes are fantastic! And Sixpence has impeccable taste in zombies.

  13. That is creepy as he'll, but so convincing. But I don't need to tell you, you don't need a zombie to suck you some

  14. Awesome! What fantastic, creative, and magnificent make up and costumes! I would love to be there amidst all that zombie fun! I would feel a little nervous around the zombie clown in the dark. I've found clowns horrific ever since that Steve King movie, It, about a murderous, evil, supernatural clown.

    I love zombie fests! A few years back, I participated in a drill where I was a zombie and the emergency crews were practicing how to save people and deal with a crisis. The zombies were a stand in for terrorists, aliens, and any unknown hostile factors in an emergency disaster situation.

    A zombie Mistress might make for a fun and fabulous get up next zombie fest!

  19. Im surprised you didn't like this, seeing as you like stiff things. I went one year...it was pretty creepy.

  20. What's Hercule Poirot doing in the middle of all that? Trying to figure out who killed all those undead?

  21. It's nice to see some ghouls and zombies still making an effort with their bouffants and moustaches *and* having the common decency to serve up brains on a silver platter!
