Infection 2009: Oshkosh's First Annual Zombie Walk

This weekend definitely flew by. I was anxiously anticipating this event for the past few weeks as the planning my husband and his friends have been doing grew increasingly hurried and intense.

I woke up on Saturday at 7:30, made cinnamon rolls for the crew of organizers, planners and helpers, and I didn't slow down until the event was over at midnight that evening. It was fun getting to help out in such a wide variety of capacities. I was a greeter, planner, interior designer, ice-fetcher, photographer...

The event was an enormous success! We had over 200 people in attendance and raised almost $900 for Time Cinema.

My favorite part of the evening had to be seeing these catnip toys go to a good home. To make sure they went to someone with a feline companion, they were given out as a prize for a trivia contest, but only cat owners were allowed to participate. The young woman that ended up winning (pictured above, by Lee Marohn) was dressed up as a zombie that was eaten by her cats; I couldn't imagine a more appropriate winner for my chainsaw, molotov cocktail and med pack survival kit.


  1. Wow... That sounds like an awesome event! I love the creativity you obviously put into your work - those toys are adorable.

  2. Thank you! I was so thankful that the event was a success. The only call we had from the police was a welfare call - someone had seen my husband driving with his zombie makeup on and called in his license plate number thinking he had been in an accident and was hurt. :o)

  3. Wow, scary and so happy it was a success!
