Zombie Walk and Beauty Pageant Shambling Into Downtown Phoenix This Friday (Brains Optional)

Put on your best, undead face and join other flesh-eating fanatics as they mindlessly moan through downtown Phoenix at 7 p.m. Friday, May 28, at the 3rd Annual Phoenix Comicon Zombie Walk. Led by the Arizona Ghostbusters (who'll be warning the living of the impending zombie apocalypse in their Ecto-AZ mobile), the free walk starts at the southwest corner of Monroe and 2nd Street, at the north end of the Hyatt Regency Hotel.

Think you've got a face only George Romero could love? Powder your rotting cheeks and enter the Zombie Beauty Pageant immediately following the zombie walk. Details after the jump.

Undead ladies only, please.

Female flesh-eaters 16 and over can strut their gruesome stuff during the Zombie Beauty Pageant at 7:30 p.m., this Friday, May 28, in ballrooms A and B at the Hyatt Regency Hotel,122 North 2nd Street. Creepy catwalkers will be required to prepare a one-minute act in addition to answering zombie trivia to compete for the coveted crown or to win one of the event's most frightful prizes: starring in your own zombie short film.

Find your application for the Zombie Beauty Pageant here. All attendees must have a Phoenix Comicon badge, which can be purchased here for $30.

A hair-raising halftime show, Twinkies and Stay-Puft Marshmallow bags distributed by the Arizona Ghostbusters, and a full cash-bar should add to the evening of fiendish fun.
