Zombie-fied My Little Ponies

created at: 04/29/2012

Looks like the zombie apocalypse has arrived and its unfortunate victims were none other than My Little Ponies. As an ardent fan of The Walking Dead, zombies are on my mind more often than they should be...however I hadn't really considered zombie animals before, let alone cute little ponies. Mexican artist Dianita Ceron created an entire series of pony zombies that she calls My Little Zombie.

How AMC's "The Walking Dead" Comes to Life

created at: 01/11/2012

I'm not a big zombie movie person. I like Night of the Living Dead, and that's about it. So I was surprised when I found myself really liking walking dead, a lot. One thing that hooked me was how well they pulled off shots of a post zombie-pocalypse Atlanta.

This is the demo reel from Stargate Studios, the company behind The Walking Dead effects, highlighting how they composite in graphics and animation to make The Walking Dead look so good. It's awesome, and it gives a good sense of how much time goes into making those shots.

The video is a little long, but try and stick with it at least to 1:28, when they show how they did the now

How to: Make a Bloody Brain Cap

created at: 10/19/2011

Mmm…brains. Halloween is quickly approaching, and that can mean only one thing: the zombies are coming. Heck, even the CDC wrote an article about how to prepare for a zombie apocalypse!

Technically speaking, this gory brain cap is probably the worst thing you could wear when the zombies arrive, but it would definitely be a great costume for Halloween if the brain-eaters aren't around.

Super Cool Family Portraits: Post-Apocalyptic Zombie Slayers

The Martin family recently sat for an updated round of family photos. And by "sat for," I mean built custom sets of post-apocalyptic, zombie-fighting armor, and headed to a gritty locale for hours of family fun.

The shoot was conceived by the mother, Jen, and all armor and props were built by the family, using hubcaps, a railroad crossing sign, soda tabs, stainless steel, sports equipment, jump rings and aluminum duct parts. I especially love the bike helmet plus floor vent cover.

"Ask me about my zombie shirt... BAM! Instantly turn into a zombie by flipping this shirt over your head."

It's like an instant Halloween costume.

zombify:  wikipedia “5 sec rules” The   five second rule  is a popular   polite fiction   regarding the eating of   food   that  has fallen to the floor or ground. The origins of the rule are unknown. The substance of the rule is that if food  falls on the ground, it may be safely eaten as long as it is picked up  within five seconds.

As it turns out, even zombies abide by short-term food contamination avoidance standards.

Totally Horrifying Stationary

There was a time I thought the embossed petunias and tiny blue birds on my grandma's thank you notes were the scariest things I'd ever seen printed on stationary.

And then this morning, I stumbled upon the letterheads of 13th Street, Germany's premier horror and crime channel, designed by Jacques Pense. Each sheet of paper, envelope, and note are emblazened with zombies who interact with the office supplies that are place upon them - staples through the face, a binder ring in the eye, or peeled off flesh from an envelope pull tab.
