I can see it now.. "OMGZ PLZ TAKE THIS CREEPY BABY AWAY FROM MY FAMILY!!!!!11"
It walks, it talks, it eats all the cat food.
Okay, so it doesn't do any of those things, and if it did, I think it would prefer brains over anything else. This is the one, the only ZOMBIE KEWPIE DOLL OF DOOM! :cue cheers from invisible audience:
So, I was wandering around the local thrift shop with my mother, when I spotted this lovely kewpie doll laying on the ground in the children's toy "pile". I thought, "Oh, how cool.. I can like put it on my desk or something." But as I purchased it for a mere $2.52, I started pondering the many possibilitys of my new toy. I told my mom, "I think I'm going to pain it like.. hot pink or green or something."
So, that night, the madness started. I took the doll apart, limb by limb, until it was a mass of body parts on my table. I found some hot green craft paint in one of my drawers and attempted to paint it with just that color (the paint was supposed to glow in the dark, but it lies). Unfortunately, the paint was too thin and I reluctantly had to start with a base color first. I tried to find some white paint, to no avail, and went instead with some green paint I found on the floor of the bedroom.
There went my plans of world dominat--- I mean a perfectly atomic green Kewpie doll creation. I painted it the normal green color first, then added the hot "lied about glowing in the dark" green paint on top, and made the hair a lovely shade of orange (hey, red-heads rock!). At that point in time, I had no real intention of turning it into a zombie... until the brilliant idea struck me at work this morning.
Green baby+ red paint= happy fun time zombie hour baby!!! (of doom)
And thus, my creature came to life. After work I found some red paint, added the blood, found some white pearly paint and painted over the eyes, added glossy varnish and sparkle mod podge to the eyes, re-added the eyelashes and VIOLA! I had my Zombie Kewpie, in all it's glory.
And now for pictures!! (and if you don't know what a kewpie doll looks like before the transformation, just do a google image search for kewpie.. esp the japanese kind. You'll find all your questions answered there! XD)

I hope you enjoyed it!! XD Sorry that some of the pics look rather dark... when I used the flash it DID make the baby atomic green... which it really isn't. If anyone wants, I can post those pics, as they do show the detail better.
I added the atomic pic to the top.. as it really is kinda atomic green. I just have bad lighting.
