Watch it HERE!
Fashion blogging has taken me to some interesting places, but on Saturday night it had me walking amongst the living dead at the official after party of the Zombie Walk in Downtown Phoenix. The event was held at the Gypsy Bar and featured the debut of the long awaited photo series: Zombie Apocalypse.
Creative Director Jake Rafus and photographer Dominic Arizona Bonuccelli have been slaving over this photo series for months now turning their gruesome zombie vision into a horrifying reality. After three separate photo shoots and tons of editing, the product was a collection of countless epic zombie shots that give the Walking Dead a run for its money. To accompany the photos they also developed a short documentary showing just how they turned a bunch of beautiful models into bloodthirsty beasts. It's quite fascinating.

Here's a look at some of my favorite shots from the series:
The venue was plastered with all of the shots from the series, but the zombie fun didn't stop there. Four makeup artists trained by the creative geniuses of SyFy's Face Off (a show all about special effects makeup) demonstrated their talents live on stage as they transformed models into some of the craziest zombies I've ever seen. My personal favorite was the zombie Miss USA who happened to impale herself on her own tiara. She was clearly having a bad day. After the zombies were all done up, guests had the treat of watching the fourth and final photo shoot of the series live in the arcade of the venue.
The Zombie Apocalypse was a huge success and I encourage you all to check out the photos HERE. Also, stay safe this Halloween weekend. I saw a lot of bloodthirsty zombies walking around Downtown Phoenix this weekend and I want you all to be safe. Seriously, I'm not kidding.
