unleashing the zombie claus virus

Thanks primarily to the efforts of a Michigan expatriate living in Hawaii, it looks as though my Zombie Claus idea might actually become reality. A date has even been set… The attack on southeastern Michigan will take place the evening of Friday, December 16… More information will be forthcoming (said operative in Hawaii is even going to launch a Zombie Claus countdown site), but I wanted to let you know so that you could get about the business of securing a Santa outfit, affixing bits of gore, and reserving Greyhound tickets for the Ann Arbor / Ypsilanti area. I also wanted to put the word out to the designers and illustrators in the audience that we’re in need of a kick-ass Zombie Claus logo. (Please.)

And, if you’re in the area and you think that you might be interested in participating (either as a zombie, as a victim of a brain-eating zombie attack, as an anti-zombie protester, or as part of the documentary team), send me an email and I’ll add you to the ZC distribution list.

Oh, and if you know where inexpensive and/or used Santa outfits can be gotten, let me know. (Ideas on how to make your own Santa outfits would also be appreciated.)

    I believe you meant “expatriate,” not “ex-patriot.” If not, please explain.

    Santarchy.com has a number of links to cheap Santa suits. There are plenty of on-line costume dealers; this one looks okay: costumeman.com/promsansuit.html

    Good luck!

    I’d stay away from open flames in that suit Mr. Skinner is suggesting.

    I assume the suits will be treated with flame-retarding zombie fluids. That will help protect them from villagers with torches.

    I believe our fellow reader, Ms. Kami Andrews, once made a film entitled “Zombie Fluids.”

    I believe the title was “Zombie Fluids 5: Gouls Gone Wild.”

    No logo submissions yet… What’s up with you people?

    Is it because I never did anything with the “Pterodactyl with an Olive Branch” submissions? Come on… How long are you going to hold that against me? I said I was sorry.
