The Dark Ones: DMP 2K17 – Night of the Walking Dead Man’s Party (Link to Flickr)
Where did all these zombies come from? Was it the recent near-miss of Comet Nibiru? Was there a secret toxic spill, or a virus covered up by the government? Perhaps a descendant of Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau has discovered her legacy? They’ve been saying “Winter is coming” for awhile now… Or maybe it’s really just as simple as accidental Worcestershire sauce in the embalming fluid (not pinkeye).
Whatever the reason for the plague of undead, they’re coming to get you, Barbara. What are you going to do when things get bitey? and don’t forget to Double-Tap! Dress up as your favorite zombie or zombie killer, and come ready to drink, dance, dodge, and dine! Donations are always welcome, and we invite you to bring a dish to share, for as we all know, the hunger of the undead is never-ending.
Costume ideas are easy — Undead, recently dead, survivors [I’m not dead yet!], classic zombie (walker, biter, infected, etc), white walker, wight, voodoo practitioner, bio hazard/radiation bunnysuit, Walking Dead character, character from any Romero-era zombie flick, Zombieland, Shaun of the Dead, Warm Bodies, 28 Days, World War Z, I Zombie, the list goes on and on. Whatever you choose, you’ve probably “got red on you”.
Wizards, Warriors, Prince’s and Queens! Beasts and Fae! They came from the farthest dimensions. Transported thru a multitude of Portals to a single place in Time, A Single Place in Space. To Party with a Singular group of people…
The Dark Ones!
No strangers to the majik and mystery of Portals, The Dark Ones welcomed them all with a hearty meal, a seemingly never empty cup of the Portal Travelers favorite drink.
Music. Laughter and Dancing!
How could it be that we even KNEW this Convergence was even going to transpire?
My dear reader…have you forgotten so soon?
We Are The Dark Ones!

As you may know, when I shoot a live event like ComiCons or a Dark Ones Party, I will often have many similar images of the same people in the set. I do this because I am not the person who is most qualified to know which image they will like / want. And so, in order for them to see all of the options, I just upload All of Them!
This time I’m doing it a leeetle different…
This batch contains all of the images that I like, but would be too repetitive in the main set.
I am only calling them “Outtakes” because I am too tired to think of a more appropriate word. That may change in the future…

Nuff Said…for now
You’ve known for a long time that The Dark Ones know how to party. Be it at a house, a Convention or a Galaxy Far, Far Away!
We rented the entire theatre just so we could watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens with a few (Hundred) of our closest friends!
Let me tell you, when the Millennium Falcons screams across the screen, having a theatre full of friends to cheer it on makes the whole thing more exciting than going up against a Rancor with nothing but a rusty spoon!
But it’s not enough for us to just fill a theatre with our own people…no…we have to take it a step further and Give stuff Away! These were the raffle prizes we gave out to some lucky Jedi. Or Sith…I’m not sure. I’m still looking for a pair of Droids myself…

“All Men Must Die”
The Long Night of Westeros: Winter Has Come.
Crows from the Wall have been sent throughout the Seven Kingdoms, and they bear but one message: The White Walkers return, and with them their Army of the Dead.
Winter has come, for all of us. There is no escape.
In these Dark Times, there is but one last task before the Walkers cross the Wall riding their dead horses… Feast on your storehouse, open all the ale casks, and enjoy what time you have left as the light fades away. Come together with your friends and comrades and talk of old times, good days, and the Dream of Spring.
Once again we play our dangerous game, And play it well. Reaching back in human history to a time before Disney twisted and crushed the spirit out of the Time Honored Oral Tradition of story telling.
The Brothers Grimm collected and published stories they personally collected to be shared in the far reaches of the world.
Tales of Children at play: As Butchers.
Tales of Romance and Love: And severed toes!
Tales of woe so horrific that they themselves had to edit them to make them more…palatable for their audience.
However, for the Dark Ones…they were Perfect Stories JUST the WAY they WERE!
We Ate, and Danced and Sang and celebrated the company of good friends and wicked tales. Fairy Tales. Grimm Fairy Tales!
