Happy Hour

Happy Hour of the Damned
by Mark Henry

Description from the amazon:
Seattle. One minute you're drinking a vanilla breve, the next, some creepy old dude is breathing on you, turning you into a zombie. And that's just for starters. Now, the recently deceased Amanda Feral is trying to make her way through Seattle's undead scene with style (mortuary-grade makeup, six-inch stilettos, Balenciaga handbag on sale) while satisfying her craving for human flesh (Don't judge. And no, not like chicken.) and decent vodkatinis.

Making her way through a dangerous world of cloud-doped bloodsuckers, reapers, horny and horned devils, werewolves, celebrities, and PR-obsessed shapeshifters--not to mention an extremely hot bartender named Ricardo--isn't easy. And the minute one of Amanda's undead friends disappears after texting the word, "help" (The undead--so dramatic!) she knows the afterlife is about to get really ugly.

Something sinister is at hand. Someone or something is hellbent on turning Seattle's undead underworld into a place of true terror. And this time, Amanda may meet a fate a lot worse than death...

  1. Such a fashionable girl, she is my newest idol... ;-)

    1. I would totally let her wear my DKNY denim dress; http://deliciousdenim.com/denim-dress-takes-on-the-standard-black-cocktail-attire/ with Manolo Blahnik's; http://www.zimbio.com/Manolo+Blahnik/articles/146/Manolo+Blahnik+Criss+Cross+Sandals+Salma+Hayek

    2. Accessorizing her with; these sunglasses and bracelet; http://girlsfashionaccessories.blogspot.com/2009/10/bvlgari-sunglasses-bvlgari-2009.html and she carries a Fendi Rifle; http://www.gearfuse.com/the-revolution-will-be-fabulous-prepare-for-zombie-attacks-with-style/

  2. 1 - Since I'm a guy, she can take one of my shirts and use it as a dress, I don't see any other solutions!

    2 - She can grab anything my mother has back at her house.
    Not my girlfriend's stuff, though, since that would get me in a whole lot of trouble!

    3 - Signed the guestbook for last month's competion. That's enought, right?

    Amanda should wear a sleeveles silk Georgette top, a comfortable jacket to go over it. A pair of denim jeans, gym shoes, because she may have to run. A shotgun, chainsaw or flame thrower to defend herself.

  4. i'm just a poor student, sweats and gym wear is the norm 0_0

    but I would dress her in this beautiful purple dress that I think is totally cool:

    It's purple because purple is my favorite color and because the zombie bloodstains won't be as visible. No sleeves-so she has no obstructions when fighting zombies -oh, and it's short so she can kick butt!

    And look at those cute earrings and that lil clutch! That's where Amanda keeps her weapon of choice:

  6. Her red silk strappy dress cut up to here and down to there with 6" red stiletto heels. Bright sparkley crystal earrings with a necklace to match. Her trusty red switchblade is tucked in her black garters and she's good to go.

  12. I would let her wear my slinky purple dress with stiletto heels, which could be used as weapons. For accessories, she would have hair pins, that could double as knives and a gun strapped to her thigh.
