To that end, Jackson brings in makeup artists to give the models a little decomposition chic with gore and guts and sometimes bugs, though she notes that the threads theyre rocking all by local designers will work for the living and the undead alike (and theyre all available for purchase). Besides the styles, the show also features zombie-themed art (two artists will be painting live), tattooing, at least one author (Brian Kaufmann signing copies of his book Dead beyond the Fence), DJs and a headlining performance by Lola Black, whose sultry pop-thrash is what zombies would listen to if they cared about music or anything besides brains.
It starts tonight at 9 p.m. at Benders Tavern, 314 East 13th Avenue; tickets are $8 (or $5 if you buy in advance) and the event is for ages 21-and-up. For more information, go to www.fashionzombies.webs.com.
