Lakewood Zombie Walk

So the reason I’m perforating my fingers to finish that She-Ra costume six-year-old Maddie has been begging for is because the Lakewood Zombie walk is coming up this weekend and Maddie wants to wear it for the walk. She and her four-year-old sister Lydia have gone with me for the last two years and it’s a fun little bit of time they can spend in my world. It’s also a good chance for them to learn about giving to charity (the zombie walk is a food drive and designed to promote awareness of hunger in our community). If you’re interested in joining us, here’s some more information  straight from the Old School Sinema Facebook page :

OSS presents its 9th Cleveland Charity ZOMBIE WALK & Festival. Doors open at 11 a.m. Walk starts at 3 p.m. Admission is $5 plus two canned or non-perishable food items. Makeup is available for a minimal fee (anywhere from $3 to $10, depending on the details, materials you request). If you need makeup, PLEASE arrive before noon due to long lines. We suggest you do your own makeup or buy supplies and bring them there ahead of time if you can’t arrive early. There will be vendors, games, giveaways, prizes and a music video shoot with Lords of the Highway! Drink specials, too!

The girls and I do our own makeup and really just come for the walk and to hang out with the other zombies for a little while. One of those rare places I don’t go to promote Violent Blue, because this event is working for a good cause. We hope to see you there!
