Thousands have walked through Brisbane's streets for the annual zombie walk.
Thousands dressed up in their killer outfits and lurched through the city along a two-kilometre CBD route, led by hearses.
The annual Zombie Walk, which raises money for the Brain Foundation, began in Brisbane in 2006 with just 300 participants.
This year, because of its growing popularity, the pre-Zombie-Walk music festival had to move to a larger space to Victoria Park at Spring Hill.
If the festival-goers needed more gore, they could pop into a make-up booth or to the Splatterhouse Marquee to be splashed with fake blood.
Sarah Cameron, from the Gold Coast, didn't need any help.
She woke up at 5.30am (AEST) to begin getting ready, which included paying a makeup artist $100 to disguise her face as a zombie with liquid latex and fake blood.
The look was completed with her jugular ripped out.
She said she'd been planning what she'd wear since last year's walk.
'I freaken love the Zombie Walk,' she told AAP.
'I'm a bit of a weird person anyway, so this is the most perfect fitting ever and it's an awesome cause.'
Jason Marsh was one of five zombie police carrying big guns, arriving in a car with a large sticker 'International Biological Solutions' plastered on its side.
They were volunteer security for the day, and communicated between each other with walkie talkies about any trouble-makers.
Gerald Edmunds from the Brain Foundation congratulated organisers for combing their zombie passion with raising money for research into brain disease.
He said nearly half of all Australians have a family member or know someone affected by brain disease or injury to their brain or spine.
The Zombie Walk hopes to raise $25,000 this year through donations.
