The Fine Art of Zombigami

So, if you'll remember, my wife got me Zombies for Zombies link last year for my birthday.  I have to say that I find it funny that my wife would get me a book like that. While I have seen the classic Romero zombie films and some of the newer ones, like Zombieland, as well as a lot of The Walking Dead episodes, I'm not necessarily a die hard zombie fan.   I like ATZ because I can play it solo pretty handily and it doesn't require tons of terrain, figures, vehicles, etc., to play. 

On top of that, my wife is actually generally quite the prim, proper type. I must have 'turned' her (heehee, yes, bad pun intended), though, when she caught me watching The Walking Dead one night and rather than take me up on my offer when I suggested she might want to change the channel, she dropped onto the sofa beside me and started watching it with me. She even went so far as to record it each week so I wouldn't miss it! 

This year, being 1550 miles away from home on my birthday, I just got a box in the mail from my wife and kids.  Inside, I found

Yup, that's right - it's a book of zombie themed origami.  Silly as it sounds, it's actually a pretty cool book.  Like all half way decent origami books, it has directions for the various folds, as well as directions to make all kinds of neat zombie-oriented kinds of things.  Along with Suzie Gravemakeer and Seymour Guts, featured on the cover, you can make Starvin' Marvin

And the Re-Animator

In addition to nine other projects.  It also comes with 50 sheets of origami paper to get you started making all of your favorite living dead folding friends.
So if you're still looking for something to get that favorite zombie fan for Christmas or birthday, consider Zombigami and "create your own zombie apocalypse"!

hehe! Glad you like the book. The kids and I KNEW we had to get it for you! As far as the Walking Dead goes, yes I watched it. With my face firmly planted in a pillow during the gross parts, so basically the whole hour.

Just sayin'!

(Oh, and you'll get more comments if you disable the captcha and use comment moderation only. Google captcha is next to impossible to decipher, and takes two or three tries to get it right. Frusterating!)

Thanks for the tip, hon. I'll have to try to figure it out.

Great pressy, my wife doesn't like zombies either, but I'm not allowed to watch "The Walking Dead" unless she's there too.

A Cool gift and make some interesting projects.

You'll find the settings to turn off captcha. Under then 'settings' then 'posts and comments' you can then turn captcha off. I don't moderate the comments on my blog I get spam once in a blue moon and just delete it.
