If lately you’ve been wondering what to buy for the zombie aficionado who has everything, here are nine suggestions found on Etsy. Most are under $20:
This dangly-eyed zombie mummy comes gift wrapped in bandages.
2. Zombie cozy
From Sparrow Design Works
It may not be terribly utilitarian with only enough room for a paperback book maybe a cell phone or a pack of cigarettes, but that doesn’t make this zombie cozy any less desirable. I like the artists’ idea of using it as packaging for another gift. It’s just a tad too small to fit my new Asus Eee subnotebook, but I might be tempted into ordering a custom cozy.
From The Ole Attic Chest
Unfortunately, this zombie doll is actually just a PDF crochet pattern, but if you search Etsy every once in a while, you’ll find someone selling the finished product. Or you could take the less fiendishly delightful route and dig out your mom’s old crochet needles …
From Kill Taupe
Every refrigerator needs an oversized zombie bunny.
A zombified take on the classic pinup. 2007 seems to be the year of the zombie pinup – the First Annual Flashback Weekend Zombie Pinups Pageant took place in July, and another one has already been scheduled for next summer.
From Natty Stuffs (who also makes zombie kitties)
This is how Dorothy might have turned out if the house had fallen on her instead of on the Wicked Witch of the East. There’s got to be a Wizard of Oz/Night of the Living Dead mashup out there somewhere – anyone?
Speaking of mashups, this crocheted octopus doll is sort of zombie meets Cthulhu (if Cthulhu had six stumpy little tentacles.)
From Angry Johnny
In case of fire: stop, drop, and roll. In case of zombie bite: Cut! Cauterize! Contain! Angry Johnny – if you’re listening, make this into a poster-sized print.
From Tina Seamonster
If you’re giving the gift of zombie, you’ll need appropriate holiday cards. And nothing captures the holiday spirit like reminding loved ones of the impending zombie plague.
