Undead Diversion: Adorable zombie stuffy dolls

Posted by Cory Casciato On August - 6 - 2010

What’s cute, gory and another way to blow your money on Etsy? This guy! Lately I seem to be finding all sorts of cute-and-cuddly zombie shit — must be something in the air. Anyway, when I heard about a zombie crafter (that’s a crafter who makes zombie stuff, not an undead person who crafts) right here in my hometown of Denver, I knew she’d be this week’s Undead Diversion.

Her name is Corinne Buchholz and she goes by the moniker of mischiefmaker on Etsy and she makes lots of non-zombie stuff, too. But hey, we’re here to talk zombies, damn it. This handsome, bloody chap goers by the name Benny and will set you back $35. She’s got another zombie pal named Melvin, who you cna see after the break, that’s $30. Not bad, considering their hand made. And when it comes to introducing the offspring to the world of the undead at a tender age, is price really an object?

Undead Diversion is your Friday afternoon cool link/video/etc. to help you transition to the weekend.

It’s an arcade/puzzle/interactive comic thing (don’t ask me, I just work here) called Dead Space Ignition and it’s coming this fall to a console system near you (presumably in your living room/bedroom/rumpus room). (Kotaku)

Budget action-RPG Fort Zombie got a major update, full of bug fixes and new content. If that sounds intriguing, make sure to check out the developers Q&A I posted awhile back. (Examiner.com)
