After a couple of photography classes I took on Saturday, a few classmates and I happened upon a zombie bike ride that was going on in Kenosha. It was called "Handlebars and Bars" and had more than 200 participants! They rode from bar to bar, completely in character.

SO funny!! I ended up stalking them for about an hour and a half (and felt very overdressed, might I add). Click on this image to the left for a better look at the drool on this dude. Haha!!

It was a PERFECT fall day for an event like this...the temperature was in the 70s and the colors were beautiful. I actually met lots of friendly zombies who wanted their pictures taken and some who never broke character at all (creepy!). The costumes were quite impressive... a great warm-up for Halloween!

I have posted some more zombie photos on flickr.
