zombies, skirts and surf nazis

last thursday i ended up going to Chiller Drive-In's Attack of the Killer B's at the main art theater. Chiller Drive-In is like this kitschy show hosted by this awesome guy called Wolfman Mac, and a whole cast of funny weird people and they show old b horror movies and do skits related to them on the local cable around here, and i think they're syndicated on cable channels around the country now. and Attack of the Killer B's is like a live version of their show every first thursday of the month. this was only my second time going, but both times were so much fun! but anyway, i've been a fan of the show from its beginnings, and have been to a few events and met the cast, and they're all so incredibly nice, and they even remember me when they see me! heh.

thursday was the first time i met Madam Niña though. she was super cool and called me "hotsy totsy," haha. i had to make it out to this one because they were showing Night of the Living Dead, and there was a zombie costume contest. which no, i didn't enter, ha. it was super fun though. i love Rocky Horror-esque type things that encourage audience participation and yelling things out. i'm just mad i forgot to bring my camera. it made me wanna try to make it out to more.

my outfit wasn't really anything special, but i thought it was cute! just recently got the skirt from work, and it's a bit of a risk for me because it's so dollish and girly-girly, which i normally am not. i think i can pull it off though.

i'm really trying to broaden my fashion horizons and try stuff that i wouldn't normally...sometimes, as with this look, i get pleasantly surprised!

i need to learn how to walk in heels though, ugh. no heels, no bras...i'm so bad at being a proper lady, hahaha. ooh! and a close-up of the make up:
i got a super-nice new make up pallette and new brushes (late b-day present), and the colors are all nice and bright and super saturated, ah! i love it!! really, i wish my stupid bedroom wasn't so dark and you could see the colors better, it was really bright and pretty! i'm still not very good (trying to figure out how to modify things to my eye shape still gives me trouble, grr), but i'm having fun learning how to play with make up!

also watched a ton of really bad movies at home over the weekend...trying to remember some...Beware! Children at Play, i think one of them was called...really boring and the death scenes were incredibly hokey...and the ending was kinda weird and cool at the same time, but totally unrealistic, how all the adults just start slaughtering the children with no mercy, but i was like holy shit, i can't believe they even went there, heh. although the beginning story was hilarious, how the kid and his dad are camping, and the dad gets caught in a bear trap and lays dying, and instead of going for help the kid just takes care of him, and later it just shows tons of empty bean cans around him, like he's just been feeding beans to his dying dad on the ground for days, hahaha, and then the kid eats his dad!

then Surf Nazis Must Die...oh, what a piece of crap, but it was a Troma movie, what did i expect, heh. it wasn't that bad of a movie, really, i'm into the whole pseudo-post-apocalyptic rag-tag gangs warring with one another thing, but i didn't understand why the main gang had to be neo none of the other gangs really made sense. like there was a gang of japanese guys that were supposed to be ninja, i guess, and a gang of like hard-rockin' heavy metal guys, and a gang of (i'm guessing) pretty, primping boys (their names were curl, blow, and dry lol). i would have liked to watch a movie about aaaaaany of the other gangs; the surf nazis were fucking boring. and they had these "surf battles" or whatever, where they never even came into contact with their rivals while surfing, so how was it a battle or whatever? i really enjoyed the twist on the revenge story though, with the elderly mom being a total badass, complete with motorcycle and sunglasses, heh. i think there should really be more badass older characters.
