Sorry for the short summer break in your amazing zombie fun, but this year's Birmingham prom theme has been announced as "I Chews You!!! Pick your favorite person to chew on and, hopefully, they will love you for your brains! The website will be updated with this year's prom information by the beginning of next week, so get prepared for the apocalypse!
Now this is commitment! I must admit, I really, really like dressing up like a zombie and am totally prepared for the upcoming zombie apocalypse, and completely love my tattoos, but am not prepared to cover myself this thoroughly! Enter Zombie Boy, a.k.a Rick Genest. I do also admit, however, I really want to meet this guy and buy him a beer. He did a make-up ad recently for Dermablend concealers, which shows how well it covers in this transformation (yes, the picture on the right is the “after” picture). Pretty interesting stuff.
So, you have your escape route planned, you have been practicing your combat training, you are competent with a gun, and you have been working up your cardio. One thing that might help in those first weeks, which are the most important in your survival, would be a mobile map of your resources. "Map of the Dead," is an app that has been going around the internet recently, so just know that to not be left behind, you have to be ahead! Knowing early where places you may need to take advantage of are, such as gun stores, and places to avoid, like the hospital and police stations, could come in amazingly handy.
Good luck out there!
You know we love a zombie inspired craft, especially when it would be useful! This one, found on instructables.com, is particularly clever! You can now turn a table into a complete zombie resistance kit. Who doesn't need a few hidden tricks up their sleeves? Click the pic to see the how to!
There is a new app available for your phone... I know I know... but this one is really worth checking out. Rule 1 is cardio, right? Well, we have all heard of the obstacle course based, "Run for your Life," (or if you haven't, you can read about it here), where you sign up for a one day event that lets you run an obstacle course filled with the biggest obstacle of all... zombies! But then what? You came, you saw, you most likely got a t-shirt, and your fitness goal is over. This app takes interval training to the apocalypse, kind of like the popular, "Couch to 5k," app that tells you when to run and when to walk, but instead of running because a voice told you to, you are running from something.
This one is called "Zombies, Run!" You can download it on your phone for... free! When you first download the app, you can choose to be in a group where you sync with your friends and a bunch of you run around from zombies or you can do a solo game. You choose if you controlled outbreak, early local infestation, late local infestation, and total pandemic, depending on how much you want to run. You then pick the type of zombie you would like to run from, with choices like Night of the Living Dead, which go 2 mph, Resident Evil, where the zombies go 5 mph, and 28 Days Later, where the zombies go 8 mph. Then you select your location on the map and get started.
So... boring runs no more... because they are coming to get you, Barbara...
As if zombies weren't scary enough, this summer you will have the chance to see, “Osombie: The Axis of Evil Dead,” about, yes, the zombie of Osama bin Laden rising up with a horde of terrorist zombies.
This isn't the first time controversial military zombies have his the screen, as to name a few, “Dead Snow,” and it's predecessor, “Zombie Lake,” had Nazi zombies eating the living. Here, you can watch the trailer and see for yourself.
One thing that warmed my heart on this Valentine's Day was looking on etsy at the multiple ways you can show someone they have your heart, zombie style. From cards, to art, to jewelry, you could make your Valentine feel very special... Or if you are celebrating solo and think Valentine's Day is a stupid holiday, you can treat yourself to bloody fun. See for yourself ->
I have run across a few blogs lately about weight loss. What does this have to do with zombies you ask? These weight loss blogs use as their inspiration for weight loss the inevitable zombie apocalypse. The next time you are feeling sluggish, have a daydream on what you would do if you had information that z-day was here. Following the rules can actually help keep you insipred for your weight loss journey. Rule #1, afterall, is cardio.
If you are having a zombie-tastic weight loss journey, let us know how you are doing with it!
Want to show the world your brains? Here is your chance! I would, however, caution you that zombies find them particularly tasty, so wear this hat with caution in case of an outbreak... It is pretty darn awesome, though... Click here to buy the pattern and support the college kid who made it, cause then you can show your brain power too!
The Oxford Internet Institute did a study this holiday season to see what people were searching for. Obviously the holiday season puts the jolly old man fresh on your mind, but both zombies and Satan still did really well comparatively! Here is a snapshot of Zombies vs Satan. I am pretty sure zombies win... Also, click here to read the entire story.
