FauxReal Zombie T-shirt!

Ever think Halloween can't come soon enough? Now you can don your zombie gear as early as you want, thanks to the FauxReal company! FauxReal specializes in photorealistic apparel.  The shirt that I have in my hands is known as Men's Zombie on their official website, and it is like nothing I've ever seen as far as t-shirts go. We'll get to the good stuff (what the thing looks like) in a second, but first I would like to say that this is no gimmick. The shirt is 100% polyester and by God is it comfortable.  I've found that polyester usually has that jersey feel to it and ends up making me sweat like a hog after about 3 minutes.  Not this shirt.  It is really comfortable, and almost has that soft vintage worn t-shirt feel to it.   My only complaints at all about the shirt are that the collar feels very fragile like it could fray after even one wash, however I think the collars are the way they are due to the high definition printing procedure that is going on here. Also the shirt itself is a short sleeve shirt but to give your arms that "zombie" look they have sewn in sleeves made out of extra tight material similar to those fake arm tattoo sleeves. This isn't as uncomfortable as it would seem, however my arms get extremely itchy from tight material so for me it is a slight inconvenience.  It wouldn't stop me from wearing it, though, because of how amazing looking it is! Now on to the good stuff: what does this thing look like? Well I will let my photos speak for themselves.

I also really like how the knife pops off of the shirt in 3D style because of how flawlessly high def the printing is!  For those of you who remember my scoring system (which I am hereby re-instating), this product easily earns 5 Jolly Jack-O-Lanterns!!!  In other words, visit FauxReal and buy yourself one, NOW!

Hallmark Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Christmas Ornament!!

My wife and I have started collecting all sorts of nerdy related goodies for our newborn, as we hope he is into geek culture as much as we are.  These goodies are not limited to the Monster Fighters Lego series sets, Mars Attacks cards, and of course various horror collectibles.  What we didn't do however was include his grandparents in this obsessive collecting adventure because they had already expressed their displeasure in our forcing the little one to be a "baby geek".  They must have changed their minds however because as my wife and I pulled up to the house we found a package on the porch addressed to the little guy from my parents, and guess what it contained?  Some cute little shorts adorned in skulls and crossbones, two packs of Mars Attacks cards, and this little early Christmas treat!

So what this equates to is that instead of the little guy getting some cheesy "Babies First Christmas" ornament for the tree, he gets this badass "Magic" keepsake ornament as his first!  (I'm sure my wife and I will end up buying said cheesy "Babies First Christmas" ornament anyways.)

As soon as I opened this for the little guy I instantly became jealous.  Me a grown man jealous of a little 4 month old, and over a Christmas ornament no less!  Well you see, my mom has a tradition of buying me a Christmas ornament each year (even now my parents give me a new one each and every year) and I can assure you that although they have bought me some astoundingly awesome ornaments, none of them have ever done this...

This is an actual recording that I did to show how the audio sounds from the ornament, no audio enhancement was done.  Pretty amazing sounding isn't it?

So there you have it, an absolutely fantastic little gift from my parents to the baby, and one that I certainly won't mind playing with a little bit until he is old enough to tell me "Uh, sorry Dad but I believe that is MY Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Christmas Ornament!"

Zombie Disney Princesses!

I was perusing around one of my regular web haunts today and found these totally amazing pics.  As you all know I have an unhealthy obsession with all things Disney.  I also have an obsession with the grotesque and macabre.  This is what happens when you mash the two together!

These amazing pieces of art are the work of DeviantArt user clocktowerman (video game reference much, I love it!)  Click his user name to check out his DeviantArt profile showcasing some of the other work he has done.  Perhaps we could also ask nicely for some more zombie versions of the Disney Princesses?

Please excuse the cobwebs....

I wanted to massively overhaul HalloweenOverkill with my renewed vigor for the site and in doing so I have created some rather ugliness about the blog.  Fear not for all will be fixed in the coming days!  Also, if you see anything you like/hate/love/would rather destroy/or simply want to give me input on the new look please don't hesitate to let me know. (Even if it's something bad!  I'd rather know than let it look ugly!)

Free Pumpkin Masters Patterns

Photobucket
Just happened to go to the Pumpkin Masters website (Zombie Pumpkins is still the best!) and found out that they have some free patterns that are available to download.  Check out the ones that they have up right now.

Photobucket

They're actually all pretty cool except for Flack Jack which seems pretty generic to me.  Also if you check out Pumpkin Masters facebook page and "like" it you can view an additional 6 patterns.  I won't spoil those for you so go check them out on facebook and see if there are any that strike your fancy!
