My Darling lil Sugarwings has caught the zombie bug. She is still enamoured with princesses, but for this Halloween, she wants to be a Zombie Elsa. And her mom was pretty good with the makeup for the annual Lawrence Zombie Walk.
The kiddo was kind of creepy, she had the act down. She stayed in character and is a good little actress.
As usual, the town turned out for the show, with what seemed like half the population as walkers, the other half watching downtown as the undead paraded by.
It was very much like the herds on the Walking Dead.
Maybe some day, I'll join in, now that I don't have my trusty side kick to watch it with, she is one of the herd now.
Although, I'm pretty happy with my routine of getting a table at cafe that offers sidewalk dining and watching the event from the comfort of my seat. This time, I sat at the Roost and ate coconut cake with a decaf latte as the goriness tromped by. My husband was out of town, and the rest of the family was occupied (the girl's dad stayed home with Dewdrop, she is a bit sensitive for the scary parts) so I was on my own.
I almost didn't go, but when I found out that Sugarwings and her mommy were shuffling through town, drenched in blood, how could I stay home and miss that?
And it was a nice, fall evening, crisp but not cool. Those days are going to be getting fewer and fewer as winter approaches.
Plus, ZOMBIES!!!!!!!!!!! Why was I even thinking about missing that???
I'm glad I went. And I am already looking forward to next year!
