Usiris23 posted a tutorial (and the cupcakes were made by Instructables user SemadarG ) over on Imgur on how to make these scrumptious zombie teeth cupcakes for Halloween. Believe it or not, everything on top of the cupcake is actually just fondant and food coloring.
The fresh blood finish is made by mixing red coloring gel with drops of vodka of lemon extract. The dried blood is a mix red with a drop of royal blue and drops of vodka/lemon extract. Using a brush, apply the “fresh blood” color mix around the torn skin tissue, and apply the “dried blood” color mix around the gums, especially where the gums meet the skin tissue.
Can you imagine biting into one of these, if it were a red velvet cupcake?

I just spent the weekend selling my handmade goodies at TopCon, a small pop-culture convention in Topeka, KS. One of the guests, Mike Mundy, was a zombie on The Walking Dead, so there was a lot of zombies hanging around this weekend. All those undead inspired me to share this great tutorial on making your own zombie plushie on the blog Heidi Boyd. This tutorial offers more inspiration than actual techniques, but if you’re familiar with basic hand sewing skills, you’ll have no problem making your little Zombie Plushie friend to hunt down brains with. You could even mix it up a bit and use different colored fleece, felt scraps, and embroidery floss. The tutorial offers up a great, basic starting point for your imagination to take over. Be sure to share your adventures in zombie making with us!
An artist by the name of Borisimo just posted this painting he/she did, on Imgur. The glare on the image is from the high gloss on it.
Unfortunately, there’s no other information to go along with the image, and Borisimo doesn’t appear to have a Deviant Art account.

It is beautifully twisted and the artwork is gorgeous. The story takes the originally premise and continues it from a completely different point of view. Here are some of my favourite etsy crafts based on the game.
