The Walking Dead, both zombies and settlers, are talking funny.

It’s UndeadTed, the perfect Valentine’s day gift! British artist Phillip Blackman describes his zombie teddy bear collection as “repurposed soft toys transformed into fluffy, bloody horrors to keep you awake at night. I individually hand-sculpt the bones, teeth and other organs from polymer clay or latex, then open the bear’s carcass, scoop out as necessary and glue the bones into place.” Mr Blackman then paints the bears and adds a wet-look varnish to blood and bones for extra realism. ”Each UndeadTed takes in excess of eight hours to make, not including the time it takes for glue, paint and varnish to dry, and I price them individually depending on size, complexity, materials used and time taken.” Unfortunately, his Etsy shop has sold out, and if you try and find it, you are directed to a similar, but not quite as gruesome, knockoff site. Keep checking, though. (via Daily Mail)
Over this past weekend, master pumpkin sculptor Ray Villafane and his team of carvers transformed three of the largest pumpkins grown in the United States into a terrifying sculptural display of zombies and other unearthly creatures. The largest one was a life-size, 6-foot tall standing zombie, weighing an astounding 1,872 pounds, with its insides oozing out, holding a bundle of pumpkin vines, pulling other zombies out of the ground. Their incredible carvings will be on display at the New York Botanical Gardens until October 31.
It’s not coming out until February, but here’s the one-sheet for the Nicholas Hoult zombie love story, Warm Bodies (also starring Dave Franco and John Malkovich). From IMDB: “After a zombie becomes involved with the girlfriend of one of his victims, their romance sets in motion a sequence of events that might transform the entire lifeless world.” Can’t wait!
