The first record of a zombie march (zombie walk) comes from Sacramento, California (USA), dated August 19, 2001. From that day on, many people from all over the world declared themselves fans of “the walking dead”, their rotten appearance, clothing and strange habits food.
Currently there are 39 marches in the world, while in Mexico it is already a tradition held in October for six years. The taste for the social phenomenon is such in the country Zombie Walk Mexico said that the march had about 30 thousand attendees.
As you will see, the faithful followers of this unique subculture represent an important and growing market for those who are interested in starting a business. One business idea is to offer everything you need for a zombie party in one place.
How to “undertake” as a zombie?
For a zombie party to be a success, you need zombie guests, food and drinks that look bad but taste good, a terrifying atmosphere and, why not, close the evening with the classic choreography that Michael Jackson made popular with thrillerin 1983.
A professional fantasy makeup course runs from $1,100 to $5,000 – it all depends on how professional you want your creations to look. In addition to the make-up kit, you’ll need to invest in other accessories, such as dentures, wigs, and rubber body parts. The goal is to be as “realistic” as possible.
As for the food, the most important thing is the presentation of the food, which should look like something out of a horror movie. In this sense, the strongest investment will come from molds for cookies, chocolate or edible gummies (starting at $400).
The recommendation is that you seek alliances with event organizers and suppliers so that, for each zombie party, you earn a commission plus, of course, your fees as a project leader ($12,000 approximately).
