The creators of “Aliens Stole My Handbag”, “Damn Fine Con” &

“They Came And Shaved Us”, bring you the fourth part in the

Weird-Assed-Weekend-Trilogy - ZOMBIECON !!

5th- 7th September 2008. Quality Hotel, Walsall, West Midlands

ZombieCon promises to be two and half days and two long nights of all the Zombie related fun, frolics and sickness you can handle; consisting of demonstrations, workshops, talks, games, masquerade, and two discos.

It offers the discerning connoisseur of all things undead and gory –

A Weekend of Blood Filled Madness!

All the Flesh Curdling Shambling Horror you could wish for!

The potential to see the Dead literally rise from the ground!

Zombie makeup and prosthetic demonstrations by film make up artists followed by hands-on workshops! We have a room dedicated to makeup and costuming for the whole weekend allowing you to take advantage of the facilities therein whenever you feel the need to add a little gore or touch up your peeling flesh.

Zombie Choreography Lessons.

Author Talks and discussions on all things Zombie, Undead-related, or just downright … weird.

There will be a number of fun, silly and potentially life-threatening games to be played such as ‘Mall Mania’, ‘BrainStomping’, and ’Whack-A-Corpse!’ along with some more sedate ones such as the ‘Zombies!” board game.

Join in, with our ‘Brain hunt’ – some kind of weird-assed-easter-egg-type-thing or maybe bring up your breakfast when taking part in ‘Braaaiiins” – the Zombie food tasting item.

“Prom Night” – Time to dress up for the classic All American Prom Night Dance, as featured in oh-so-many horror films. Come clean n gleaming, in your best Tux or Ball gown, or maybe add a little ‘Carrie’ twist Wink

“Dead Can’t Dance” – Fancy Dress Horror Disco. Come dressed as your favourite zombie hero – ‘Bub’, ‘Ed’ or even ‘Michael Jackson’ – we really wanna see those corpses!

We also hope to have Zombie short films shown and discussed with film directors and Zombie experts!

Dress up and win Horrific prizes in our weekend long masquerade challenge.

Buy tickets for the raffle, and interesting items in the auction of ‘Undead Goodies’ (aka ‘tat’).

We will be announcing various and varied guests soon, and will be adding more information on things happening at ZombieCon along with membership information at www.ZombieCon.co.uk so keep an eye out (literally)!

Join Now! Join Often!

Limited space for dealers. If you have cool merchandise that you think will suit the flavour of the con, please contact us about space.


NOTE: ZombieCon is a ‘Vitally Challenged’ Equal Opportunities Convention, and accept memberships from those living, dead, or recently risen.
