Fort Lauderdale Zombie Walk 2012: Five Favorite Undead Looks

Christina Mendenhall 
If you missed the premiere of The Walking Dead last night, we're bringing you some brain eating, membrane covered zombie realness from Friday's Fort Lauderdale Zombie Walk to make up for any unsatisfied blood lust ya got. 

Swarms of rotting souls invaded the Green Room to get undead. Professional makeup artists were on hand to kill the masses with face paint. 
Black Friday's DJ Mike LinderSMASH led the way, wrangling walkers by way of a chainsaw. The smell of gasoline was preferable to the aroma of rotting flesh. 

Compared to last year, the walk itself was a little anti-climactic. Sure, seeing herds of drunk, sweaty, bloody, and downright nasty walkers was entertaining in and of itself, but as a participant, it felt less exciting that 2011. The walk was more of a circle around the block than a legit downtown takeover. But we totally get it... No one wants another unflattering bath salts zombie reference in the headlines again.

Some zombified participants did go all out though, jumping toward cars stopped in traffic, running in and out of bars, and scaring the living you-know-what out of unsuspecting and obviously uninformed victims.

In honor of the blood-curdling night, here are five of some of our favorite zombie looks of the evening.

Nothing is more ironically disturbing than partying alongside dozens of not-yet-walking dead jits. They bobbed for apples like pros and jumped around the Green Room stage like true party animals in training. And who doesn't love bruised and bloody babies when it's not really a bruised and bloody baby? So freakin cute, right?! Well, it's something. Something that reminds us of Trainspotting.
