Undead stage set for spooky fashion — With the traditions of Halloween has grown the number one opportunity to dress up as anything imaginable.

As a result, it’s the perfect excuse for Main Street Pauls Valley to include an event for the costume minded in the already packed Living Dead Center Festival on Saturday, Oct. 27.

For Main Street Director Samantha Robb it really was a no brainer coming up with the Undead Fashion Show, something perfect to compliment the holiday and create a contest for those who wish to strut their stuff.

“When they had the International Superhero Day they had a superhero fashion show that was really awesome... I thought that was a great idea, we need to do that for Halloween too,” said Robb, explaining how she first gained inspiration from homemade entries at the local Toy and Action Figure Museum celebration back in the summer.

“We thought it would be a nice tradition to start.”

However, instead of setting aside a time to register everyone who wants to participate on the catwalk, many of those who will share their costume with adoring audiences at the PV Arts and Cultural Center, located at the corner of Walnut and Paul, will be chosen by Main Street volunteers during the events earlier in the day, said Robb.

All one has to do is show up looking their spooky best whether it be at the Zombie 5K or the coffin cruise and be asked to return later that evening and be ready for the fun at 6 p.m.

One does not have to be a flesh eating ghoul to be chosen, just simply have a creative looking costume that doesn’t go too freaky past family friendly, said Robb. Of course, if you have a costume ready already that you believe is impressive you can e-mail Main Street a picture of yourself in it, which is the one way to get in early if approved.

An added bonus is it will cost nothing to attend or participate in the fashion show and there is a trophy in it for the best undead fashion statement. On hand to help as well will be volunteers with the PV Arts Council.

“It’s basically an opportunity for the people who are there to participate,” said Robb. “If it’s something really cool we certainly want it in the show.”

The rest of the day’s events include the Zombie 5K Run at 9 a.m. downtown, a Zombie Walk for Cystic Fibrosis at 10 a.m., the Arts Council Monster Art and Glow Show from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the downtown Arts and Cultural Center, coffin cruise soap box races at 1 p.m., a Monsters Ball and Zombie Prom at 8 p.m. and an interactive showing of the Rocky Horror Picture show at midnight (seating limited with tickets for sale).
