Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

I was so tired yesterday that I forgot to mention that Amanda thoroughly enjoyed her trip to New York City over the weekend where she had a marvelous time not just looking for brains but also offering them up on a tray along with some innards and a swig of blood should one find themself down a pint or two! 

I'd be willing to bet that when my old Gram B made that apron that Amanda's wearing with her costume that she never in a million years would have thought that her great-granddaughter who would wear it in a zombie walk!  Not that she would have known what a zombie walk was either!

As you can see, Amanda did her usual great job with her make-up and even has that "flesh sliding off her face" look down perfectly!  Her friend Sami prefers not to have to spend an hour washing the stuff off so goes for the slightly less-zombified look - though still horrific in it's own right! 

No matter how ghoulish and ghastly they look, though, the girls had a wonderful time hanging out together while scaring people on the subway ride back to Sami's place and just being kids.  Someday they'll be able to look back and fondly remember the times they lurched down the streets of Brooklyn in full zombie regalia - something that not a lot of us could ever say!

  1. Amanda looks like I've been feeling these past few weeks! Great job with the makeup.
    I've found Amanda's Doppleganger. Well, at least cousin. There's a real pretty girl on "Parenthood," the new TV show. It's got the cutie from Six Feet Under on it. I can't think of her name right now, but the first time I saw her, I thought of Amanda...
    So glad they had a ball.

  4. Barb, I noticed that and laughed at the bit of 'stability' in that costume (or 'get up' as my grandmother would have called it, among other things!). Harmless fun is what it is, and this creates memories.

    Big hugs...

  9. I thought I could be safe from the zombie apocalypse at a diner, but I guess not. See? I'm just not going to survive when the zombies come for me.
