1066 Walk Of The Dead 
Photos from before the 2016 Zombie walk

Preparing to unleash the Walking Dead on Hastings

These are the pre Zombie walk photos from the 1066 Walk Of The Dead held every year in Hastings on the last Saturday in October. I've been three times now, but sadly missed the 2015 one as I already had tickets to Wyntercon and they were on the same day. For this one day of the year ( Saturday the 29th of October 2016 this year ) the streets of Hastings in East Sussex are invaded by hundreds of the walking dead. This year the meeting point for the beginning of the Zombie walk was Hastings pier, we had people the lovely people from Barnes Land doing face painting and latex effects on anybody feeling a little too human, me included! I didn't stay around for the after party which was also on Hastings pier, hopefully next year I will be feeling less like one of the undead and will be able to stay for it all!

I think some of the best makeup effects were created by my own daughter Joanne, who runs Lethal SFX:

My also very cool makeup was done for me by Barnes Land:
