This cake is filled with delicious brains.
Flesh-eating monster, or adorable slow-moving comedy creature; the zombie has been portrayed as many differing things throughout culture. Through film, gaming, art and even music videos (“Thriller”, anyone?), one thing is for sure: these bad boys of the undead are here to stay, as we see zombie influence everywhere!
Zombified version of the Raging Judge Magnum.
Zombie marathons are even included in a crazy list of activities, as well as a popular trend sweeping the UK, 2.8 Hours Later, where the public can pay to be chased around by zombie-costumed crazies. From zombie hats, T-shirts, toys, and video games to, well, cupcakes, it looks like the infection is never ending!
Coming soon to a highway near you.
It seems to be that the chance of a zombie attack has been taken incredibly seriously in California – so much so that the local authorities are creating a sense of calm for all citizens. Also notice the licence plate – now that’s dedication!
This adorable plush toy from thinkgeek.com is the perfect gift for the zombie fan. Not too sure what age would be suitable for the toy to save copious nightmares, but nevertheless, plenty of fun to be had.
Pulled apart in the lab.
You can rip all the limbs off this cute guy, including his detachable brain of course. The torso also detaches from the body – such a nice touch!
If in the event of a zombie apocalypse, the human race will need the essentials to survive – this much is true. Hence, roll on these genius zombie-inspired water bottles and Thermos bottles, reminding those monsters that we humans can handle their bio-hazardous behaviour!
If you need the perfect pair of sneakers to convince your peers you are, in fact, undead, then something like the above could be just the thing.
This deviant art designer sure knows how to create shoes in gruesome zombie detail – you may even convince yourself by glancing down from time to time. Check out the cockroach scurrying across the foot…disgustingly eerie, yet simultaneously awesome.
Zombie Pumpkins range from the cute...
Halloween is scary enough without sights like these. A zombie pumpkin, however, is a fantastic addition to a hallows-eve setup. Creativity at its best, combining comedy and horror!
...to the terrifying.
Pop Tarts can be Zombies too.
Perhaps the best zombie-inspired objects are the ones that are the most unexpected; cue the cute toys that still have underlying zombie connotations.
As can worms.
These creations come from Etsy brand Scrumptious Delight, bearing all cute and cuddly gifts, with some zombie inspirations! Included is another zombie creation called ‘Feeding Time’, which features some furry eyeballs!
If the zombie craze is reaching as far as the mighty Marvel franchise, then we are surely on to a winner. Amazon boasts a zombie-branded Hulk, and a Zombie-branded Wolverine for all Marvel fans to enjoy these limited-edition goodies.
Superpowers, plus the zombie infection, must make the best of all super heroes! Well, perhaps for the ones who choose an all-brain diet anyway…
If you wish to keep the kids off your grass, then this is the way to do it! Named the ‘Zombie of Monticlare Moors’ by designer Henry Toscano, this ornament is not for the faint hearted.
Made in a series of zombie-style garden decorations, including some gravestones and zombie feature portraits thrown in to give the full scare! Toscano has also designed some door sculptures, showing zombie faces popping though wooden boards. An office must!
Instruction for the under fives.
Here’s the situation; a zombie apocalypse has occurred. The undead monsters are roaming the streets, eating and destroying everything in their path – what exactly do we plan to do about it?! Well, thanks to a few hilarious books from thinkgeek.com, we can stay informed.
The site includes sales of ‘How to Speak Zombie’ – very informative when needing to communicate with the creatures. Perhaps we can resolve this peacefully if we can speak zombie? This book is interactive, allowing us to hear examples of ‘zombie’; hilarious and informative indeed.
Import advice for the under eights.
Another example is the fictional story ‘That’s not your Mommy Anymore’, based on author Matt Mogk’s belief that when he was a child, his mother was in fact a zombie. May the disturbed stories continue in a fun- and cartoon-style basis!
Check out these tasty treats with a twist; that is, if you fancy some brains for you’re after-lunch snack. Not to worry though, these treats are perfectly edible for all humans. The cakes consist of a raspberry flavoured base, with vanilla frosting and a chocolate brain.
Additional raspberry sauce gives a bloody topping ready to be devoured! The creator xsomnis, found via Flickr, has also included recipes for more brain food. We suggest you all try your own at home! (No brains were harmed in the making of these cupcakes)
Work in progress.
The strangest to top all strange Internet findings….zombie doughnuts always come out on top! Found on buyzombie.com, this ornament is one for your, well, petrified foods ornament collection?
Doughnut Eat Me!
The website even includes a description of what happened to poor ‘Mr. Jimmies’, who was a ‘mild-mannered doughnut’ to begin with. Oh, how things have taken a sour dough turn!
So, there you have it; eleven of the weirdest items inspired by the living dead. However, if the Zombie apocalypse should occur, we’ve found some merchandise that should inspire your resistance.
Stay safe out there.
