I went to this event last year and it was a blast and very disgusting especially the blood part. I highly recommend it.

Learn to apply zombie makeup with Crown Town Handmade!
Thursday, October 27th, 7:30pm
Plaza Muse, 1200 Central Avenue
Free, but bring your own supplies (don’t worry about bringing everything on the list, but at least the basics.)

Here are the details from the Facebook page:

Bored Stiff? Ever wonder how the walking dead experience the day to day? Time to get into their disgusting shoes for one night…the Night of the Crafting Dead! Join Vanessa of Corvidae Jewlery for our second annual (?) night of horror and transformation. Vanessa will show you how to apply frighteningly convincing Zombie make-up, what details to add to really appear undead, and how to make a delicious concoction of dripping blood to finish your appearance.
Join us after as we set out to share and scare the best way possible: with candy! We will be reverse trick or treating and spreading the word about Crown Town Handmade. Be sure to wear clothing that you don’t mind getting blood all over and bring a mirror and towel. Check the supply list for other Zombie necessities you may want to bring.

Supplies:
CHEAP makeup (Wal-Mart/Target Halloween palates are perfect)
Suggested colors: grey, green, black, brown, yellow, purple & (most importantly)White
Eyeliner: Black, blue, green
Lip liner: Red
Mirror
Towel
Make up Sponges
Clothes that can get dirty because THEY WILL. The Make-Up (and blood) Will Stain!

Optional:
Liquid latex
“nose putty”
baby powder
baby wipes
make up brushes, flat and powder brushes are the most useful. You can purchase basic brushes in any make up section of a store or check out Morris Costumes!

See you, and your delicious brains, there!
