Zombies on My Mind

It turns out that this week is the 10th anniversary of the release of Shaun of the Dead.  It you haven't seen it, read no further; go immediately and watch it now.  If you have seen it, you know even ten years later it's a great movie.  It's one of my favorites!  I love funny zombie movies that aren't super scary.  Here's my list of favorite zombie movies.

  1. Shaun of the Dead
  2. Zombieland
  3. Warm Bodies
  4. Cockneys vs. Zombies
  5. I am Legend ( I consider this a zombie movie - it is a little scary.)
As you can see I've had zombies on my mind the last few days.  I've been anxious to create a new zombie, and couldn't wait for the swap.  I sat down last night with no specific zombie plan in mind, I just built as I went along. In the end, I created this sweater zombie to tide me over until the swap begins. I may have to watch a few zombie movies to really get in the spirit. I'm looking forward to zombies in the nursery.  I hope you are too!
