The Zombies are Here

 It's back to school time but I couldn't resist joining the zombie doll swap hosted by Val.  Stop here to see the amazing zombie dolls everyone has created! My zombie came in the mail on Friday.  Just look at the packaging, I knew it was going to be good.

The theme of this year's zombie doll swap was Alice in Wonderland. My very talented partner Kathy created this amazing zombie Cheshire Cat for me. Thank you Kathy!! Check out Kat's blog to see how she created this amazing kitty.

 Here's my zombie horde with their newest additions.  I couldn't resist making myself a Cheshire Cat to keep, he looks a bit impish or devilish but I think he's charming.  Both Cheshire Cats seem happy to have a zombie horde to join. They're one big happy, bloody family. Aren't they cute, in a bloody zombie sort of way?!

The Cheshire Cat on the left is the one I mailed off to my partner.  He's got a removable dead mouse that attaches to his hand. I was sad to send him off as I can't tell you how many hours I spent creating him, but it took a very long time. That's why I created a second simpler one for myself.  I really enjoyed creating these guys. I'm already thinking about more dolls I could make.
