Bring it on, it’s ‘Beach of the Dead Brighton’!

Beach of the Dead 23

In my last post, I mentioned that ‘Halloween isn’t such a big deal (or so it seems to me) in Britain’. And I was wrong – well, at least in Brighton, they take it seriously. Mr T and I were cycling around the city centre last Saturday, and the city looked somehow different. Then Mr T was stopped by a zombie; this was when we realised that the city was full of the dead!

Apparently, this was the annual Beach of the Dead Brighton Zombie Walk; 4000 zombies paraded through the city and the seafront.

We were truly impressed by how good their make-up and costumes were, and how the zombies acted so much like zombies (you know, the slow walking, groaning and spitting out blood)! I cursed myself for not bringing my camera with me (I took these photos with Mr T’s phone).

At least he caught a fish before he died…

And yes, zombies eat ice cream, too.

I don’t know how he drunk that beer in his hand…

 

And, of course, there were a few familiar faces, too. Here are my celebrity snaps.

Amy Winehouse, looking quite classy there.

No, the king can’t be dead…

Beach of the Dead 18

Never seen Smurf zombie, nor Smurf drinking beer!

Beach of the Dead 22

And who could resist Jack Sparrow, even when he is dead?

I really wish I knew about this event beforehand so that I could take part in it. I’m already planning what I’m going to wear for the next year’s parade…
