For Day 1, I was at another event, but I was able to attend for Day 2!
I had only heard of this event a few days before it took place. I saw a post by a popular Walking Dead cosplay group known as, Reel Guise Cosplay. They posted about a coupon code that people could use to get discounts on their tickets for this event. Curious, I looked up this Zombie Fest on Google. I found the website and I looked for any information about Press. They didn’t seem to strict about it since they asked me how many days I was planning on attending and the quantity of passes that I needed, assuming that there were other people working with me.
This event actually takes place close to the convention center where Long Beach Comic-Con/Expo takes place.
It was pretty fun. There were many vendors, including a vendor for zombie make-up. There was a concert going on, but I don’t know what the band was called. I liked them though. They played some great covers! I think one of them was The Beautiful People by Marilyn Manson.
It’s a three-day event and it’s great for the whole family…I think. For more info, you can visit their website.
It’s always a good party this time around in West Hollywood (besides Pride, of course). It’s always nice to see how creative and hilarious people get with their costumes. I don’t even know if I can decide what the highlights were. There were so many great costumes!
Chipotle even gets in on the fun with a $3 burrito deal for anyone in a costume.
I had no idea what I wanted to be this year. I didn’t want to repeat a costume this time, though I probably would have if I couldn’t think of anything. I mixed up a few things the time. I found my Death costume, but the mask part was missing, so I used a demon mask. In the past, I wore my Butthead shirt which states that he wants you to pull his finger. Considering that Death likes to point its finger, I figured it might be funny. It was actually my dad’s idea. This time, I wore my, Vote For Pedro, shirt because I thought that would be funny and it’s almost time for the Presidential Election.
Some people actually liked it! Plenty of people wanted photos of me and with me. I told them to vote for Pedro on November 8. Someone thought I was a scary Napoleon Dynamite.
As I suspected, there were many people dressed as Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. There were many people dressed as Negan as well (Any Walking Dead fans out there?).
