Gainesville’s Zombie Brunch
Gainesville’s March brunch was a little bloody. The theme was zombies! Whether it was adorable zombies, bloody zombies, or just surviving the zombie apocalypse, Gainesville brunchettes busted out their undead best.
Brunch was held on a beautiful Sunday at One Love Café. One Love has abundant outdoor seating that was perfect for a Florida spring day. Brunchettes were able to show off their makeup skills for this brunch. Some came as zombies and some came as zombie hunters.
Gainesville hosts a monthly zombie LARP game called Dystopia Rising. Dystopia Rising is played across the U.S. at campgrounds. Over a weekend, attendants take on fictional personas and immerse themselves in a post-apocalyptic world. Overrun by the undead and mutated creatures, characters portrayed fight for survival, civilization and the future of a humanity that has been ravaged by the destruction of the world once known. The brunchettes involved in Dystopia Rising wore their character’s clothes to brunch.
Brunchettes received a zombie-themed swag bag from filled with rations (candy) from Officers Emily and Megan. Of course, there was a zombie rubber duck included.
