Because I can, that's why

“If I have to face the end of human existence,
 I want to look totally smoking when it happens. 
Now shut the hell up.”

They expect everyone to be enamored of their beauty.”

Yesterday there were cement workers tearing up my backyard, ripping out my plants, breaking up my patio with skid-steers and very loud saws and jack-hammers.

When the dust and smoke cleared, the yard was in ruins.

My patio is now a vast expanse of gray gravel and stone.
The once-lush view out my window has turned grim and kind of post-apocalyptic.

Like a wasteland.


So ...
The way I see it, when life gives you post-apocalyptic wreckage, the only logical thing to do is to complete the picture by making a naked zombie to lurch across the lifeless wasteland.


And not just any zombie.
A Barbie Zombie.

Because the way I also see it, when life gives you post-apocalyptic wreckage and an abundance of thrift store Barbies, the only other logical thing to do is sacrifice one of those Barbies and make a zombie with absurdly unrealistic female proportions, so that the other zombies feel fat and ugly.

In the spirit of giving credit where it's due, thanks to The Zombie Apocalypse for helping me with this idea, and for some super tips and other fun zombie crafts!
