March of the Zombies V fashion show bigger and better than ever

This weekend Denver zombiephiles and fashionistas alike were treated to the amazing annual spectacle that is March of the Zombies. The fifth annual show at the Grizzly Rock was an overwhelming success in spite of the driving snow and icy roads in Denver, making it the biggest and best in the event’s history.

March of the zombies organizer and founder of Creative to Bless, Summer Jackson, was thrilled with the reception on Saturday night. Jackson said of MOTZ5:

“Volunteers, performers and patrons really came through this year in a big way. I felt very blessed the whole time knowing that everyone ignored the snowpocalypse and came out anyways! This made me feel that MOTZ5 was protected with favor. I can only imagine what a snow free event next year will bring.”

An apocalyptic night for an apocalyptic theme. The driving creative inspiration behind the music, art, and fashion designs of March of the Zombies is, of course, everyone’s favorite undead monster.

Designers Summer Jackson of C2B, Seven Seals Apparel, Broken Perception, Julio Alejandro Designs, and Parasite Eve Designs put their finest work on display on models made ghoulish by special effects makeup designers. Each model was fit for the set of “The Walking Dead”… and fabulous. Some models even sported full-body paint by artist Alan Anderson, transforming them into walking works of art.

Bands Flash Mob, Fallen & Forgotten, Lost Point, and headliner Reno Divorce kept the packed house on their feet the whole night long, while local artists displayed their zombie-inspired work.

If you go to one fashion show in Denver all year long, make it March of the Zombies. You’ll support innovative local creativity and have one helluva good time. And at the rate it’s going, next year’s MOTZ6 will be a party of apocalyptic proportions.
