Zombie Head Casting Day – and Freddy Krueger attack?

Zombie head casting was everything we could wish for – long, messy, productive, and fun!

2015 March 29 - Zombie plaster cast party8

Our SFX masters Sean George and Eden Kontrimas accompanied four of our “horde” zombies with Blair and Samantha for a day of mold making and casting. At the Toronto School for Professional Make-up where Sean is a teacher by day, we had the luxury of the entire FX department for the whole 7 hours it took to create these beauties.

Volunteering their faces to the zombie cause were Mandi Sunshine, Richard Chuang, Lex Darian and Justine Cargo.  And Blair couldn’t let the day go by without getting a cast of himself done – for future posterity.

These casts are destined for the highest tier of ZomBFX full face prosthetics for our Ripe ‘n Rotten zombies.  We’re even considering selling them online if we can swing that. Everyone wants to look as good as these guys after Sean gets done with their zombie FX, so why not share the love?

In the course of mixing and pouring and generally making a mess, someone thought to read the instructions on the Alja-Safe (alginate or Alginic acid used to make temporary molds needed on body parts when making life casts).  The instructions say “must wear gloves”. And we were smearing this all over everyone’s faces.  Concerning?  Well, it’s called “Alja-Safe” not “Alja-Cancer“, after all, so pretty sure no one will suffer any adverse effects.

Blair and Freddy – a dream come true!

When any part of the Bony Fiddle crew get together, it never fails that some hilarity will ensue.  At one point, when Samantha was working to film a little blurb with Mandi, she was “attacked” by Freddy Krueger and couldn’t get loose.

Not to worry, she’s safe and her sweater just got caught on one of the claws of a life size (and very realistic) statue of Freddy.  Blair’s Freddy obsession was in overdrive as you can imagine.

Almost done – waiting on finishing touches

Each mold made separately, Sean and Eden went through a cycle of hair covering, applying Vaseline, smearing Alja-Safe all over each victim, er, volunteer’s heads and wrapping with plaster bandages. Once set and removed, they moved on to the second step of the life casts which involved coating the insides of each temporary cast with cement and burlap for strength. A short time later, the temporary molds were torn off, leaving the finished zombie head casts.

7 hours and lots of clean-up later, we had 5 perfect head casts.  They’ve now joined the ranks of recently created Bony Fiddle skulls in Blair’s workshop.  Destined for zombie fame, we plan to get lots of use out of them and you’ll see them in action the next time you order some Ripe ‘n Rotten zombies for your event or shoot.

At the Toronto Zombie Walk and Halloween Parade

It was the day of the undead at the Toronto Zombie Walk and Halloween Parade.

This year, Bony Fiddle had the privilege of being a featured krewe in the Toronto Zombie Walk and Halloween Parade and it was a dream come true. Everyone dressed in costume and surrounded by hundreds of zombies…? What?

We live for this stuff!

The day began early with a make-up and costume pre-parade scramble. Big thanks to one of our Bony Fiddle FX make-up artists, Eden Kontrimas.  Took stamina to power through the assembly line of krewe who needed making-up.

By the time we were ready to go, Blair’s apartment was trashed, but we looked awesome, so it was all good!

This was the biggest Zombie Walk and Halloween Parade in Toronto to date with more than ten thousand undead and supporters in attendance.  Truly a testament to the organisational powers of The Toronto Zombie Walk Board of Directors – we love you Thea and your undead gang!  We had the pleasure of creating a loose relationship with the Toronto Zombie Walk group this year and very much look forward to continued development of that relationship.

We’d drag our corpses anywhere for them.

The day’s events began around 11am with the opening of the Zombie Market and Nerf Zombie Strike Midway at Nathan Phillips Square. The parade launched at 3pm from the float holding area just behind City Hall.  Funniest moment while we were waiting to go out?  That would be Morticia (Justine Cargo) breaking into spontaneous twerking on the street.  Oh, it happened – we have photographic evidence.

The krewes along with our own were released one-by-one with a pack of zombies between us.  We rounded the first corner of the route to cheers and cameras while the zombie wrangles ran around us with brains on sticks to keep the undead under control.  We made our way out to University Ave, around the corner onto College and then straight on down Yonge Street.

Hitting Yonge Street was surreal.  We thought we’d seen a lot of people until we got around the corner.  Spectators were elbow-to-elbow and about ten or fifteen people deep or more in some spots.  Camera flashes were going off in every direction.  What a rush!

Highlight of the day? What seemed like thousands of people packed onto both sides of Yonge Street spontaneously breaking in the theme song from the Addams Family as our Bony Fiddle crew walked by. Nothing finer than a Saturday afternoon when thousands of people all snap their fingers and sing in unison in response to something we did.  No complaints there.

Thank you Toronto and thank you Toronto Zombie Walk and Halloween Parade.  We’ll see you next year!
