Walking Dead Inspired

Zombies are All the Rage these days!

And yet, they date back to the 30’s, did you know? One of the first books to expose western culture to the concept of the “Vodou” zombie was The Magic Island by W.B. Seabrook in 1929. Now you can see zombies everywhere, from music videos, to tv shows, films, video games… and, well makeup tutorials! lol

But what are zombies exactly? 

They’re dead but then not really lol..  Gross creatures, usually mindless and with a silly hunger for human flesh. Old depictions of zombies used to involve magic but modern methods rather invoke a virus. More realistic! There could be zombies among us, because of us!!!!! 😉
