Zombies are a huge hit this Halloween. The timing around the release of 'The Walking Dead' made this partnership a natural fit.
New Berlin, WI (PRWEB) October 28, 2011
BuyCostumes.com, the largest online retailer of costumes, accessories and décor, now has Halloween costumes available from AMC’s original cable series, 'The Walking Dead'. Costumes from the record-setting series include Rick Grimes, Little Girl in Pajamas Zombie, and officially licensed decayed zombie masks and costumes for adults, teens and kids.
The company is also working with meemo LLC, a virtual goods technology and marketing company which created The Walking Dead Facebook app “Spread the Dead”, allowing users to create avatars and personalize them with many different virtual items from the physical collection of The Walking Dead costumes. Users can also link from the site to BuyCostumes.com directly to purchase actual costumes as well as share their personalized avatars across Facebook.
In tandem with this effort, BuyCostumes.com is offering The Walking Dead sweepstakes on its Facebook page. Fans who “like” the BuyCostumes.com page can enter to win the grand prize of the 3-disc special Blu-ray edition of season one of AMC's The Walking Dead, an authentic zombie mask designed by special effects master Greg Nicotero, a Walking Dead comic book signed by writer Robert Kirkman, along with The Walking Dead Rick Grimes costume and a $50 gift card to BuyCostumes.com.
