Trying to impress that ridiculously cute hipster girl in the Greater LA area? Don’t know what she likes? Perhaps you were raised on a farm and came to LA after discovering and selling a crude oil deposit under your land (hint: unpop your stupid collar). Well, thanks to thousands of census reports and stem-cell research, we’ve discovered that hipster girls are coded to love zombies. We haven’t discovered the specifics but we do know that there is definitely a correlation between the level of love-for-zombies and used clothes. It’s science.
So. They really really love zombies. Shoot. Who doesn’t? There’s something about the undead that screams romance. Words like: undying (love), unstoppable (to no end), and pursue (her when she walks away) tickle a girl’s subconscious. What girl doesn’t want a dude with braaaaiiiiiinnnnns? Take your date on an undead walk with some of So Cal’s finest zombies in Santa Monica!
The So Cal Zombiewalk is an annual walk in spring where people dress up like zombies and terrorize the LA Coast. It’s great fun and definitely out of the ordinary. Impress away, fellas.

NIGHT OF THE ZOMBIE DATE
With any good zombie anything, preparation is best. You should start by getting your zombie game proper. Hit up your local thrift stores for some good trash-able clothes (Remember: this is a hipster girl; dress to impress). Don’t know of any? She will. I recommend a good pin-striped suit that fits well on the shoulders, legs, and arms; keep it cheap. Thrift store suits should be under $20-$30 for the complete 3-piece set and should be thoroughly shredded. Chicks dig suits. You’ll always looks better in a suit – dead or not.
Once you’ve give your zombie attire a good shredding, you’re going to need the make up. While she might have some good accents to use, glitter sucks – you don’t want to come out looking like an undead RuPaul. Hit some Halloween or party stores up for white, red, and black facial make up to start the facial basics (white for the base coat, black under/around the eyes, black to accent the cheek bones, and red/black on your mouth/shirt/sleeves/etc). Get some of those flesh-wound kits for good measure.
Once you and your date are looking at your worst, head out to 3rd and Promenade in Santa Monica. Make sure to continually check: http://www.socalzombiewalk.com/ for updates. That’s about it! Happy haunting!
