Ack! Zombie Attack!!!


I have been alternately cracking myself up and creeping myself out all weekend.

I really let my garden get away from me this year. I had a hectic summer, but thats no excuse for how badly overgrown things got.

Inspired by the Inspired by the Zombie Barbie Garden at This Mama Makes Stuff ( http://thismamamakesstuff.com/2010/10/barbie-zombie) , I decided I might as well turn my horror story of a garden into the real deal.

I got some of the dolls from a friend who has three daughters and a home daycare, but the bulk of them came from the thrift store. Even though they were going to be buried, I wanted to wash them first. The dishwasher seemed appropriate.


I don't think our neighbors can see into this part of our yard from their windows, but if they did, they might have wondered what I was doing...


I used a spray paint specifically made for plastic, but apparently "plastic" does not equal "Barbie heads and legs." The paint adhered and dried just fine on the torsos, but after a day of drying, the heads and legs were still tacky. I rubbed some baby powder on them and they were good to go.

I didn't have enough clothes to outfit the entire Zombie Army, so I wrapped scraps of fabric around them and called it good. It was kind of fun to play zombie fashion designer for a few minutes.


Faces were drawn on with a Sharpie.


Some of my favorites:








Happy Halloween!

Oh~I just love this Grin

This will be an excellent addition to Halloween next year. Honestly, naked Barbies are creepy all on their own. I can a little zombie girl rocking back and forth while in the corner with one... off to collect a few old dolls Wink
