The Zombie Sailor Costume

Imagine a beautiful, yet eerily quiet, deserted island, with lapping seas, scattered coconut shells and a hot bright sun. A light breeze reveals a handful of gold glinting coins among the grains of sand and a loan seagull circles above. This seemingly perfect paradise, however, conceals a dark, terrifying secret….. Hidden behind the seaweed adorned rocks is a rotting ship, maimed in an angry storm hundreds of years earlier. Shredded rags, overturned buckets and fraying sails litter the deck along with the odd human bone, scraped of any sign of flesh. Below the surface live the undead of the sea. Hungry, wounded sailors with blood shot eyes, unkept hair and greying skin, lie in wait for the arrival of the next group of unsuspecting travellers….
