That rules! (hah- rules- I did that pun thing, didn't I?)
Was it cathartic to do that to the cataloging book? How'd you rig it up?

hee!
I actually printed the cover image (and spine and page edge image) on glossy photo paper and glued it to a cardboard contraption, which I attached to a hairband. Then a zillion bobby pins and the glue-like nature of the fake blood kept it very firmly in place all afternoon. :)

I know that learning AACR2 feels like a lot to cram into your brain at once, but I can assure you, THIS APPROACH DOES NOT WORK!

One year later

So, last year I ended up not doing zombie librarian, but I am tonight! Thanks for the inspiration. I just finished making my fake blood (chocolate, peanut butter and corn syrup as the interesting ingredients) I'm going to smell like the candy people are handing out, I think.
