Last year was our first year doing this event and we had such a great time that we decided to do it all over again this year. Words cannot describe, so I'll just say this: if you only take one vacation a year, this should be it.
The trip to Disneyland alone is a blast- I was actually amazed at how the "bats" took over the place. There's almost a sense of comraderie that takes place as the "normal" become the "abnormal". I do have to giggle a bit thinking about those poor families from the midwest that unknowingly decided that this would be a fabulous weekend to take the kids on a trip to Disneyland...
Bloodbath will be at The Black Market selling an array of horrifying bath products, along with tons of amazing vendors. You will want to sell a kidney beforehand to have enough cash to buy all of the things you won't be able to live without. You may even want to stock up and give as gifts later- you just can't find this stuff anywhere.

The group gathering for a photo in front of the castle. Note the sea of tiny umbrellas. Remember zombies... these, along with those tiny little hats, do not do a damn thing to prevent your pasty flesh from rotting in the sun. Just sayin'
The young batling was infatuated with this gal. She was pretty darn cute..
And Mr. Bloodbath seemed to take a serious liking to this gal. I have affectionately named her "The Anti-Goth". I think I'm feeling a tinge of jealousy...
