February 2007 saw another giant leap for Terror4fun, the first time for us to set our stall out, literally! We attended a traders fair and got to hand out information and explain to people exactly what we do and gave members of the public an insight into just how strange we are. Held during the last weekend of February in Elsecar Heritage Centre, near Sheffield and Barnsley, in an old locomotive building, about 500 people attended over the two days. There were a whole pile of people from weapon manufacturers like Eldritch, Medlock and Having a LARP to Ale-House, purveyors of ‘Quality Booze' to events around the country and Mike the Beef Jerky man!
The stall consisted of copies of our downloadable make up guides, our ‘Blood and Guts' LRP system, flyers, business cards, “I love Zombies” T-Shirts and of course, being a zombie stall, a big zombie head full of really unhealthy sweets to try and soothe the nerves of the passing members of the public, who were obviously intrigued by, but un-easy about approaching our blood soaked stall. But Terror4fun was not just there as part of a PR exercise…
On each day, Zombie Ed of Terror4fun did a Zombie Make up Demo, each one consisting of three brave volunteers getting plastered in various amounts and qualities of make up to show the crowd three different types of zombie. The demo was geared towards Zombie LRP Events and showed people three different zombies, the first being ‘What not to do,' the second showed a basic zombie using just a little greasepaint and a pile of blood and the third zombie being covered in 3D zombie make up made using SFX wax and latex.
The demos went down well and people promised that they should try and avoid creating Crap Zombies in the future, which after all was one of the points of the demo. The main focus of the demo however, was simply to make people think about their zombies, if they play a massive body-count system in the dark, then some make up quality can be sacrificed, but Horror LRP systems with PC undead should really encourage high quality walking corpses rather then just a bit of red smudged greasepaint round the mouth and a badly done shuffle…
