Bonfire Night Costumes to Keep Warm Comments Off on Bonfire Night Costumes to Keep Warm

bonfire night costumes to keep warm

Halloween is over for this year… but Bonfire Night is just around the corner!

With all the blood and guts of Halloween cleared up and put away for another year, Bonfire Night is another fantastic opportunity to show your fancy dress capabilities. Where we tend to dress to scare on Halloween, Bonfire Night is more about just having fun – but also keeping warm!

If you’re going to a bonfire event, you’ll want to make sure you don’t freeze your toes off! We’ve our fingers crossed for a dry night, but it’s still likely to be fairly chilly!

Here are some ideas for costumes that will allow you to stay warm:

A Mummy!

You can wrap yourself up all warm and cosy, and then just wrap bandages (or toilet roll) around yourself on top. Warm and toasty all evening long!

A Pirate

Pirates sailed the seven seas in trousers, boots, pouffy white shirts (good for wearing layers underneath) and jackets! Perfect outfit for standing about for a bonfire event.

A Zombie

Everyone loves a zombie, right? The brilliant thing abou being a zombie is that a person might have wrapped up warm for an evening at a bonfire party, with gloves and everything – and then been bitten by a zombie and become one themselves!

A Doctor/Surgeon

Doctors tend to wear loose-fitting scrubs and/or a white coat – you can wear layers underneath to keep warm!

A Onesie

Ok, so a onesie is not technically a fancy dress costume – but most onesies are characters like a bear, a crocodile or a cow. If you have one in a larger size you can wear a layer or two underneath.

A Superhero

Superheroes tend to dress in skintight lycra outfits… but the thing about lycra is that it’s stretchy – so you can probably stretch it over a pair of tights and a thermal top!

If you’re dressing up for Bonfire Night events this week, don’t forget to share your photos on our Facebook page!

 

 

It’s World Zombie Day this Saturday Comments Off on It’s World Zombie Day this Saturday

Posted on October 07, 2015 by Fancy Dress Ball

world-zombie-dayThis Saturday is World Zombie Day!

What do you mean, you don’t know what World Zombie Day is? It’s been circled and underlined on our calendar since… well, last year’s World Zombie Day.

World Zombie Day is an event that happens in cities all over the world. It started out in Pittsburgh in 2006 and has since grown to include fifty cities across the globe – including London.

Why did it start in Pittsburgh? Durr, don’t you remember your zombie history? The Monroeville Mall in Pittsburgh was where the Dawn of the Dead arguably the best zombie movie of all time, was filmed.

And so, this Saturday lunch time , thousands of zombies will congregate in central London. If you want to join in, you’ll need to register on their site for the insider information!

We’ve already given you blog posts about how to become a zombie on the cheap,  a zombie name generator, and even a guide to zombie walks.

Today, we’re just going to revel in a bit of cinematic brilliance, with a bit of…

Dawn of the Dead Trivia!

  • The movie was filmed in the Monroeville Mall overnight from 10pm to 6am. The mall opened in the days as normal, but not until 9pm. So why did they stop filming at 6am? Because the Muzac came on then, and nobody knew how to turn it off!
  • They suspended filming over the Christmas season because it would have been too expensive and time consuming to remove all the Christmas decorations every night and then put them up in the morning.
  • The actress who played Francine in the movie, Gaylen Ross, refused to scream. George Romero asked her to once, and she refused saying that she felt the character was a strong female and that screaming would make her look a bit weak. He didn’t ask her again! She also insisted on fighting the zombies herself, saying she refused to play a character who wouldn’t fight zombies on her own!
  • During filming, some of the actors in full zombie makeup took photos of themselves in a photo booth in the mall – then they used the pictures to replace the sample photos on the front of the booth. Imagine coming to get your photo taken the next morning and finding that on the front of the booth!
  • Most of the fake blood in the film was made from a mixture of food colouring, peanut butter and sugar syrup. Remember that in a few weeks for Halloween costumes!
  • The film was made on a tight budget and they could only afford to pay stunt people for the driving scenes. Almost every other stunt in the film was performed by a make up artist and his assistant, who volunteered for them!
  • The marauding zombie bikers were actually played by a local chapter of a bikers club. The motorcycles they ride are their own.
  • Apparently the extras who appeared in the film were given $20, a packed lunch and a Dawn of the Dead t shirt.
  • The same single dummy was used throughout the movie shoot. During that time it was blown up, shot, burnt and beaten!

Do you know any other Dawn of the Dead trivia? We’d love to hear about it!

 

London Marathon Fancy Dress Ideas Comments Off on London Marathon Fancy Dress Ideas

Posted on April 22, 2015 by Fancy Dress Ball

london marathon fancy dress

 

As if running one of the most popular marathons in the world weren’t enough, lots of people opt to do it in fancy dress – something we applaud wholeheartedly. Not only is it commendable to run such a distance at all, but in fancy dress it is probably a little harder – and looks a lot better!

The trick with running such a long distance in fancy dress is to choose an outfit that’s not too bulky or heavy, and preferably as close to your normal running kit as possible… or at least something you can wear your normal running kit under. Here are our top picks:

Morphsuits

The obvious choice, don’t you think? You might end up having to break a hole in the face to allow better air access, but being skintight, something like this shouldn’t hamper your running efforts too much – and if you choose a funny character one, should be quite amusing for spectators and other runners!

Superheroes

There’s just something about running around with a cape billowing out behind you, don’t you think? Again, a lot of superhero costumes are fairly tight so won’t get in your way – and if you wanted, you could wear just the cape with your normal running gear underneath.

A Marathon Runner

Durr, yes, we know if you’re running the London Marathon you’re already technically a marathon runner – but this costume is so easy to wear over existing running gear! Aside from the bright red heels, which you might find a little hard to run in, the rest of the outfit makes a pretty good marathon fancy dress costume!

A Zombie

Well, you know how we love zombies! Not necessarily the most practical of costumes, but we just love the idea of a sea of people running over London Bridge with a zombie or two running after their brains! The beauty of this costume is that you can do as much or as little as you want – full face of makeup, crazy outfit, or just some fake blood and effects over your existing running kit.

A Lego Man

Ok, hands up, this is probably the least practical marathon fancy dress outfit there is – but it’s the one most likely to get you chatting to one of the BBC reporters on your way round, if that’s your thing! You’re also likely to end up in several newspapers’ “great fancy dress outfits from the London Marathon” features the following day. If you want to get your (lego) face in the paper, this is the fancy dress costume for you!

 

If you’re running the London Marathon this year, good luck! Enjoy the incredible atmosphere of one of the most popular, prestigious races on Earth – an awesome day out, whether you’re in fancy dress or not!

Become a Zombie on the Cheap! Comments Off on Become a Zombie on the Cheap!

become a zombie

 

If you’re a fan, you’ll already know that the new series of Walking Dead hits our screens soon. In honour of perhaps the best zombie series ever made, here is our guide to becoming a zombie on the cheap… and without the nasty, biting part.

The first thing to think about is your outfit.  Will you be a zombie nurse, a zombie chimp, maybe even a zombie penguin?  Whatever you’re going for, the important thing to remember is that it needs to be ripped, dirty and probably spattered with blood and/or brains. Zombies are not careful eaters.

You don’t need to buy a costume; you can just wear old clothes and mess them up a bit with some strategic tearing and smearing. Super cheap and easy to do.

Next is the make up. We love this tutorial for Walking Dead zombie because you don’t need loads of professional special effect make up, just standard make up and fake blood. And really, who doesn’t have fake blood hanging around the house any way…

 

The final, very important point, is to perfect the walk. Often the first giveaway that the person heading towards you is a zombie is the way they are walking. Here’s a good tutorial for how to walk like a zombie. If you can’t be doing with all that reading, here’s a handy video:

And finally, the most important part of becoming a zombie… BRAINS! No normal food for you; zombies do not have a varied diet. Don’t worry though; we’ve found this fantastic tutorial for making brains. Perfect!

 

Enjoy the return of the Walking Dead… and your brains! Nom…

Zombie Walks! Comments Off on Zombie Walks!

Posted on July 02, 2014 by Fancy Dress Ball

According to Wikipedia, a Zombie Walk is an organised public gathering of people who dress in zombie fancy dress costumes. These events are organised in towns and cities up and down the country.

One of the biggest and best is 2.8 Hours later, which runs events in Manchester, Glasgow, Sheffield, London, Liverpool and Birmingham among others.Fancy being chased around the city by zombies? Well now you can! The idea of the game is that  you have to make it around a circuit to various checkpoints, and then back to the “asylum” without being infected by the zombies. Players in this game apparently get completely immersed in the game, which can be a lot of fun considering it’s played in public and you can never tell who’s an actor, and who’s an unsuspecting member of the public.

Sound like fun to you?

Fancy dressing up as a zombie? Here’s our guide to the best zombie fancy dress ideas…

The most important thing to remember when dressing as a zombie is that you can’t do it with your normal face of make up. You need to make yourself look… well, undead!

Here’s a great tutorial we’ve found to help you with that:

Once you’ve got your make up sorted, you can work on your costume.

Zombies are essentially normal people who’ve been bitten, so the great news with this is that you can go as over the top as you like – or just make minimal effort and still look really believable!

As you can see from this photo, you really need to involve a lot of blood and gore, whatever your outfit:

We love this idea of matching keyrings, so that you can identify your apocalypse partner in the event they become so zombified they’re unrecognisable!

If you have children who can’t get involved in one of the adult Zombie Walks, why not give them their own, mini walk with their friends? You can easily give them all a bit of a make-under!

Screenshot 2014-07-01 at 22.15.11

You could even make them some cute little zombie marshmallows:

Actually, never mind the kids – adult zombies love marshmallow brains too!

Whether you’re taking part in an organised zombie walk, or having a smaller one of your own, remember:

The official monster rating guide! Comments Off on The official monster rating guide!

Posted on September 13, 2013 by admin

The nights are closing in earlier; there’s more than a distinct chill in the air; coats, hats and scarves are being brought out of the closet; yes, autumn is truly upon us and Halloween will be here soon!

Horror has made a huge comeback in recent years thanks to a range of movies, TV shows and literature, so choosing the right monster for your Halloween party is truly an important task which requires much thought and planning.

Looking for something scary, or prefer to keep it kooky? Love the gore factor, or maybe you prefer something a little more tame? With the official monster rating guide, discover the strengths, weaknesses and scare ratings of all of you favourite horror characters!

The Zombie

Zombie_Walk_2012_-_SP_(8149575399)

Strengths: The zombie is undead, so it’s pretty hard to kill. It’ll keep coming after you even if you chop its legs off, and they tend to come in large groups.

Weaknesses: The brain is the biggest weakness of the zombie, which is pretty ironic because zombies LOVE brains! They smell because of the whole rotting flesh thing, and they have absolutely no charisma making them less than charming dinner guests.

Scare factor: 8/10

The slow zombie may not pose the biggest risk, but with the new breed of fast, incredibly angry zombies making an emergence, they are now rather scary! The zombie is the perfect Halloween costume for people looking for something with lots of torn clothing and plenty of fake blood.

The Vampire

18449204_5002549d02_z

Strengths: The vampire is a brilliant conversationalist and is likely to lure you in with his charm. They’re usually rather attractive and wealthy too, meaning they have the ability to take over the world one soiree at a time.

Weaknesses: In order to attack, vampires have to gain your trust in order to get close enough. If you stay aware, or keep a selection of everyday objects like a bit of garlic, sharpened wood or the Sun around, they’re pretty useless.

Scare factor: 5/10

They can easily lure you in under false pretences which is never nice, but they’re not very scary. Though if there was a ‘sexy factor’, they’d win hands down! This makes them perfect for those looking to dress to impress at the local Halloween party!

The Werewolf

Alex_Stevens_werewolf_Dark_Shadows_1969

Strengths: Literal strength is one of the greatest attributes of the werewolf, as well as the fact that they’re really not easily killed.

Weaknesses: The transformation can leave the clothes they were wearing in tatters, and they tend to have anger issues when the change has come about.

Scare factor: 9/10

Sure, they might look like a large, fluffy pet, but if a werewolf comes running up to you you’ve got little chance of survival. Anyone looking to take on the were-look this Halloween needs to make sure they have a lot of time and patience for the fake hair!

The Witch

8235255566_91bd924253_z

Strengths: Witches have the ability to make things happen using only the eyes of amphibians and a few bat limbs. They also have a lot of charisma, which is why they’re always part of a tight-knit coven.

Weaknesses: They’re the original “mean girls” and are happy to cast a spell on anyone that crosses their path thanks to an uncontrollable anger problem. Plus they’re not very attractive, given the green skin and warts.

Scare factor: 6/10

If you get on a witches bad side then you may have something to fear, but as long as you keep out of their way you have nothing to worry about. This monster is a great choice of costume for anyone looking to strike a little fear into anyone who has crossed them recently!

Top 5 literary zombie adventures! Comments Off on Top 5 literary zombie adventures!

Posted on August 09, 2013 by admin

Los_zombies_en_el_DF_Zombies_@_Mexico_City_(5113191297)

Zombie movies and computer games have made somewhat of a comeback in recent times, with cinemas filled with tense action-thrillers (and the odd zom-rom-com…), while video games take the genre from gory comedy to intense emotional journeys.

If you’re fancying a break from these forms of visual entertainment, perhaps a literary zombie adventure would be the perfect relief. The tension is amped up, the descriptions are wild and varied.

Some of these literary masterpieces have inspired some of the best-loved TV shows and films to have hit our screens, while others have gained fame in their own right. Let’s take a look at five of the best to fill your bookshelf with!

The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman

4316289403_7da9599585_z

This is the comic book series that inspired the eternally popular TV show of the same name, which sees Robert Kirkman take the story from the page to the screen. If you thought the show was intense, you may be shocked by the contents of the books…

Following Rick Grimes as he awakens from a coma in hospital, he must travel through the zombie apocalypse to reunite with his wife, Lori, and son Carl. Along his journey, he meets a variety of companions, as well as some who wish him and his team dead.

The series has been active since October 2003 and shows no sign of slowing down. The content of the books is incredibly graphic and not recommended for those of a delicate constitution. If you like the show, however, you’ll love seeing your favourite character in different situations and seeing how their personalities and decisions differ from the show.

World War Z by Max Brooks

3649707771_d1f81e67b1

You guessed it; the recent Brad Pitt movie of the same name took inspiration from this book by one of the highest praised zombie writers Max Brooks. While the movie may have been called the same as the book, the contents of the novel differ greatly from those on screen.

Brooks also wrote The Zombie Survival Guide which has world-wide fame for its heady combination of humour and sincerity.

World War Z provides accounts of various characters that have lived through the zombie apocalypse and ‘Zombie War’, which lasted for ten years. The book has some of the much-loved humour Brooks is famous for, as well as interesting sociological takes on current society as a whole.

With themes of religion, politics and the environment, even those who aren’t looking for a zombie-yarn will find this novel thought-provoking as Brooks combines political agenda with a zombie uprising.

I Am Legend by Richard Matheson

Published in 1954, I Am Legend is credited as one of the main influences on zombie and apocalypse fiction pop culture today and was one of the first to deal with the genre in such a graphic tone. The novel, which famously influenced the film of the same name starring Will Smith in 2007, inspired the famous 1968 film Night of the Living Dead.

The dead in the novel have a heavy resemblance to the modern vampire, but are credited as an alternative form of zombie by modern academics. The narrative follows Robert Neville as he attempts to create an immunisation for a post-war society, as he is immune to the disease himself. With a mixture of horrific flash backs and intense loneliness, our hero takes the reader on an anxious and fevered journey.

It’s a brilliantly written and imagined piece of work that has been cited by many of the greatest film makers and authors as an influence. Stephen King has praised the book highly, while George Romero has shown a great love of the work. Meanwhile, UK filmmaker Danny Boyle has also shown his influence from the book.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith

3423258503_c2f6b6d49e_z

Combining Jane Austen’s classic and beloved text with zombies – what a mix! Using an idea by Editor Jason Rekulak of combining classic novels with “popular fanboy characters like ninjas, pirates, zombies and monkeys”, co-author Seth Grahame-Smith compiled this highly successful pop-culture novel, which will shortly become a feature film starring Lily Collins.

Heroine Elizabeth Bennet resides during a time when zombies are simply considered a deadly nuisance. Women must know how to fight alongside men, but still remain lady-like and delicate. All your favourite characters such as Mister Darcy, Mister Bingley, Elizabeth’s sister Jane and the unforgettable Lady Catherine remain in the book, but with a brilliant ninja twist.

The novel is, of course, humorous and entertaining, but it has also been praised for reigniting an interest in Austen’s work and critics have been pleased with the respect and attention to detail that has been paid to Austen’s signature language style.

The Road by Cormac McCarthy

The-road

While it is not a zombie novel per se, The Road has been cited as a huge influence upon the post-apocalyptic genre as a whole and was the main inspiration for PlayStation 3 game The Last of Us.

Harrowing, difficult and emotional, the novel follows the characters of ‘The Father’ and ‘The Son’ (also known as ‘the man’ and ‘the boy’). Attempting to search for redemption in a desolate earth, the pair must negotiate around cannibals and thieves who will stop at nothing to survive.

The novel has won numerous awards, including the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. As well as subverting the zombie genre, McCarthy has been credited as one of the most important environmental authors and a huge influence over political discussion in regards to humanity and the environment.

Top 5 Zombie Games of the Current Generation Comments Off on Top 5 Zombie Games of the Current Generation

Posted on July 19, 2013 by admin

Last week, we talked about horror-survival, critically acclaimed game The Last of Us – but we don’t think we’ve talked about zombies enough yet.

While The Last of Us has unanimously been lauded as one of the best zombie-survival games in existence, there’s still others out there that give the PS3 exclusive a run for its money. So turn off the lights, find a comfy spot behind the sofa and get your gaming cap on – it’s time for the top five zombie games of this console generation.

Left 4 Dead 2Xbox 360, PC

Both Left 4 Dead 2 and the original Left 4 Dead are big on co-operative gameplay – because in the event of a zombie apocalypse, you’ve get a better chance of survival if there’s mates around to help you. Preferably wielding some form of chainsaw.

The gameplay is simple enough – try to get to a safe house while avoiding the gnashing teeth of some very hungry brain-crunchers. The story isn’t much to shout about, but for prime zombie-mashing, it’s great for letting off some steam.

ZombiUWiiU

One of the release titles of the long-anticipated WiiU, ZombiU is a far cry from the adorable, cutesy style of Mario and his friends. Set in the streets of London, you’ll take the role of a random survivor who has to use anything he can to battle against armies of the undead, who are very keen to take a chunk out of you.

Because of the innovative WiiU touchpad control, this is definitely worth a play. It’s a bit difficult to get the hang of, but once you do, you’re away.

Dead SpaceXbox 360, PS3, PC

The Dead Space series are easily some of the most terrifying video games in existence. Lauded for responsive controls, engaging story-lines and some genuinely scary moments, Dead Space 1, 2 and 3 comprise a franchise well worthy of its success.

After the crew of the Ishimura is struck down by an odd illness, mechanic Isaac Clarke finds himself thrown into a world of horror as he becomes acquainted with the ex-crew: a series of mutated, knife-handed monstrosities that are also very, very angry with him.

Though not technically a ‘zombie game’ as such, you’ll still find yourself pitted against reanimated corpses eager to shove you off this mortal coil.

Play this one on your own – if you dare.

Lollipop ChainsawXbox 360, PS3

This tongue-in-cheek, unabashed zombie slash-and-hack game stars a high-school cheerleader who also – for whatever reason – happens to be a seasoned zombie hunter. When her boyfriend is infected by a zombie, she must chop his head off and hang it from her belt to keep him alive. As you do.

Set on a backdrop of blood and guts, Juliet brandishes her chainsaw while collecting lollipops and ‘sparkle hunting’. Praised for innovative gameplay and the voice acting of Tara Strong – who voiced Harlequin in Batman: Arkham AsylumLollipop Chainsaw doesn’t take itself too seriously.

The Zombie Island of Dr. NedXbox 360, PS3, PC


Dr. Ned didn’t mean to hurt anybody – he just wanted to help the people of Jakob’s Cove when they got sick. Or that’s what he says…

An expansion pack for Gearbox’s highly-successful Borderlands franchise, The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned is a game in its own right, with everything that makes a great zombie shooter – blood, guts, brains, shotguns and a whole host of undead foes. Throw a charismatic antagonist into the mix, and you’ve got a hilarious game with a great script and plenty of replay value.

If playing these great games gives you a taste for undead-hunting, you could always recreate it with a zombie hunter costume – or, if you can’t beat them, join them!

The Last of Us makes PlayStation 3 history! Comments Off on The Last of Us makes PlayStation 3 history!

Posted on July 12, 2013 by admin

Horror-survival game The Last of Us has enjoyed some extremely positive publicity since its release on 14th June. With perfect scores given by gaming e-zines such as IGN, it would be reasonable to wonder if the game really lives up to the hype.

Well, it’s not just the critics who are hailing The Last of Us as a masterpiece; the gamers themselves are showing their delight at this new PS3-exclusive game as well.

Official sales figures have been released for the first four weeks of the game, and according to a report by The Sixth Axis, the franchise has been declared the fastest-selling PS3 game of 2013, and the fastest selling new title in the history of PlayStation!

So what is it that makes The Last of Us so great?

The popularity of the game goes to show just how successful a new zombie franchise can be. Original and cinematic, the terror Naughty Dog have managed to create through what is otherwise quite a well-known trope shows the developers really are the leaders in initiative and innovation.

The storyline is very well developed and emotional; while the cinematic cut screens feel integral to the gameplay, rather than a hindrance.

Of course, it’s the zombies which really make this game what it is.  With a wide range of zombie ‘types’ to come across and destroy, they are vastly different from anything you’ve encountered in any other game.

The recently turned give anguished, tortured cries, leaving us feeling sorry for them as well as fearful. Meanwhile, zombies such as the terrifying ‘clickers’ are equal parts revolting and fascinating.

The Last of Us has some real fans, with even celebrities enjoying the series. Above shows Seth Rogen playing the game in an IGN exclusive, while the likes of Charlie Brooker have shown immense admiration for the title.

 

It helps that the zombies are so believable. These would be incredibly easy to recreate for a zombie costume for a ‘first-stage’ zombie, whilst the more developed zombies would require some creative paper mache!

Days of the Dead: Where to Hang Out with Zombies in the UK! Comments Off on Days of the Dead: Where to Hang Out with Zombies in the UK!

Posted on June 28, 2013 by admin

 

In case you haven’t noticed, we’ve caught the zombie infection here at Fancy Dress Ball recently! Thanks to a combination of awesome zombie films, TV shows and comic books, we’ve gone kind of zombie crazy at FDB HQ this past month.

Thanks to this zombie mania, we’ve been taking a look at some of the best and most immersive zombie experiences here in the United Kingdom, and there are some which make zombie walks look like a stroll in the park (which, to be fair, they usually are).

If you think you’ve got what it takes to take on a horde of zombies, or even if you just really, really can’t get enough of them, here are some of the best events in the United Kingdom for you and your fellow survivors to enjoy.

Zombie Evacuation Race

Zombie Evacuation Race Trailer from Harris Hawk Media on Vimeo.

Do you like the idea of an assault course, but need more than the simple feeling of so-called physical “achievement” to get you going? If so, this event was designed by people exactly like you, who wanted to bring the fitness and challenge of an assault course and make it ten times more fun and scary.

Even though the race began only in 2012, it’s back for a second year after over 8,000 participants clamoured to be involved last year. Set in four different locations (Edinburgh, Cambridge, Bristol and Pippingford), participants take part in a 5k forest assault course whilst being chased by zombies and encouraged to find the best route with team work.

After the race, both the living and the living dead can enjoy the Post Evacuation Party which includes Zombie Target Practice, games, contests and food to reward their hard work.

Zombie Blitz 1940

London_Blitz_791940

If you like to mix-up your fantasy-horror events with your love of history, this is the event for you. Based in the truly unique location of the tunnels beneath Waterloo, you are sent back in time to 1940s Britain while The Blitz destroys the city over head – but there’s something even more sinister in the tunnels…

You become part of the story line and have to make your way through different dark tunnels where a new and fearsome evil faces you and your friends.

It’s a great chance to become truly immersed in a story, especially if you’re a fan of the 1940s and zombies! The team involved is truly brilliant – they have a tonne of other zombie events all over the country which are famous for being the perfect combination of terrifying and fun!

Zombie S.W.A.T. Training London HQ

Meat_Grinder_zombie_(7265759848)

You’ve been handpicked to undergo intense zombie survival training by the Undead Response Unit as London has been overrun by the shambling dead. Do you accept the challenge? Of course you do!

Called “London’s scariest and most realistic zombie-themed event”, Zombie S.W.A.T. Training combines the always-fun paintballing experience with zombie-based action. The site specifies you must be “physically fit” and “emotionally sound” to be involved, so it sounds like an intense event!

There are lots of events which started in May and go all the way through November but make sure you book early – these events are selling out fast so get your team together and get involved!
