Though I wasn’t exactly bitten, the infecting process transforming me from runner to clicker took 6-7 hours for San Diego Comic Con 2014. Between my wife and her cousin, this was their first time doing this kind of makeup gig, and they did an outstanding job (understatement of the year).

We started around 10:30pm Friday night working on the hands, arms, and chest, and we finished around 2:30am.

There was no way I was going to take the prosthetics off and apply them again in the morn. So I had to sleep (as carefully as I could) with them on.

We slept for 2-3 hours, woke up and started working on my face at 4:30am.

Still the face, left side of the neck, shoulder, and any patchwork that had to be done from rough sleep had to be done in two and a half hours as we were leaving around 7:30am for San Diego.

The shoulder prosthetic was from a previous con, thank goodness, but it still needed an upgrade.

Keeping the tree bark on the neck was a challenge as was keeping my neck skin stretched for full elasticity and mobility for when the latex dries.

What delayed the process most was cheap liquid latex that was not thick enough therefore not drying quickly enough and also the over saturation of liquid foundation.

In San Diego, I walked blindly as my mask has virtually no vision, allowing me to play the clicker role all the more. I primarily had to rely on sound (how suiting).

Yes, the process was laborious and required patients. Yes, it took a team for both prep and during as I needed people to be my eyes. Yes, it was worth every moment semi-seeing the smiles, the awe and horrified looks on peoples faces.

"What is that?!"

"It looks like…toast…popcorn…pizza…French toast…pizza…bread…Sponge Bob…"

"CLICKER!!! SSSHHH…."

Neil DeGrasse Tyson Ruins Your Zombie Fantasies Forever - Video

Love this bit

"just sayin’"

He’s thought about it though. One of the greatest minds of our generation sat down one day and was like “wait, could zombies exist?” And then he did the science thing and was like “nah we’re good.”

This was my whole thing that peeves me about Resident Evil is that even IF zombies could be real, they would still continue to decompose so Extinction, Afterlife, and Redemption wouldn’t happen because the zombies wouldn’t last long enough, or if there were still zombies, the populations would be much smaller and manageable.

I swear on everything that this isn’t just some stupid contest to gain followers. I’ve been wanting a new camera for ages so now I have two. I was thinking about returning/selling my old one, but I wouldn’t be getting the same amount or more than what it was originally priced. I’ve already talked to my mum about me giving it away, and she doesn’t mind. Anyway, who doesn’t like free stuff?
Here’s how this will work:
You do not have to follow me. I don’t want any followers that don’t actually like my blog. I do ask of you to kindly check out my blog though. If you like it cool, if not, then your loss.
Likes do not count for anything, only reblogs will count. You can reblog this as many times as you’d like.
Do not create any extra blogs or whatever, I will be looking on your archives.
Winner will be chosen like as if it were a raffle drawing.
Winner will be contacted via ask, so make sure that you have that on/open.
This will be over on August 21st 2014, and the winner will be announced on the 22nd.
I am doing this basically to make someone else happy and also because I accidentally deleted the other contest I was doing. Please don’t participate if you already own a Canon, but you can if you’d like I guess. I really don’t care if you live in Hogwarts, anyone is allowed to enter.
Here’s what the winner will get:
Canon EOS 1100D
Camera Cover R-F-3
Battery Charger LC-E10E
EUR AC Cable 1m
Battery pack LP-E10
Battery cover
Interface cable IFC-130U
All the disks needed.
The camera is basically brand new.
If you think this is “stupid” of me to do or anything of that sort, than just ignore it. It’s that simple.
Q. “Why would you just giveaway an expensive camera to a stranger?”
A. TO MAKE THEM HAPPY!
Q. “How do we know you aren’t bullshitting us?”
A. To make a fake contest just for followers is stupid, plus, I have a picture of me holding both the cameras :)
Good luck.
