Zombie Prom! [Scottsdale]

  • It’s the 4th Annual AZ Zombie Prom!

Maker Faire Phoenix 2011! [Phoenix]

  • Perfect if you like taking things apart, putting things together, or otherwise love creating.

Zombie Fair & Zombie Appreciation Day! [Tucson & Phoenix]

Maybe I’ll see you out Friday night or Saturday afternoon. Enjoy you’re weekend, however you spend it!
