For those that have been sticking with the blog, you may remember my post detailing a zombie walk. They are massive events that span hundreds – and sometimes thousands – of people, who all dress to resemble one of the undead. From zombie makeup and torn clothing to severed limps and loads of fake blood, everyone does their best to look their worst.
In 2010, Paris held one of the best zombie walks ever recorded. (And by best, I mean best.) The attendants looked absolutely disgusting and the quality of detail that went into everyone’s costumes was astonishing. People walked around in post apocalyptic armor, with blood dripping from every orifice. Others shuffled in mobs, moaning and looking like they walked right out of a George Romero movie.
Live Rasoloarison, an artist living in Paris, was there to capture the whole thing. Even if you find the current over-saturation of zombie culture to be unbearable, you cannot deny the morbid beauty of these photos. Paris has definitely found a way to outperform every other zombie walk that has ever taken place. If America wishes to step up their zombie quality, we had better start planning now.
