Zombie Crafting 101

So I had written and article for Cutoutandkeep.net snippets, was told it was great and sent it three times to them, they told me it was great and to expect to see it soon. Well they launched it and all I see is stuff that they are advertising instead. I don't see any of the regular CO&K writers, basically it looks like the just went pro and forgot us little people. I am hurt but I am sure they have a good explanation why it was not posted. So I decided to share with all of you my article because I really thought it was great with Halloween around the corner.

A brief lesson from the Zombie slaying Goddess

The night is cold and crisp, you are in your pajamas and then you hear the creepy sounds of low moaning of the undead.
You slowly tip toe through the hallway and into the kitchen heading towards the noise. You quickly scan the kitchen for a weapon,
wishing that you didn't have to put all the knives away in the dishwasher for a good cleaning. You go for the cast iron skillet on top
of the stove. With your weapon gripped tightly in you hand you slowly make your way to the living room, ready to pounce on the evil
creature that makes that unearthly sound.You reached your destination to only realize its just your husband playing his video games and
he just had lost for the thousandth and one time. **SIGH**

Zombies....what are these dark creatures of the night?
These nightmare-ish monsters are reanimated corpses brought back from their deathly slumber.
Most stories orignated to how this can be which ranges from voodoo magic to chemical warfare. They date back as far as the
Egyptian times and are popular in today's culture.

Why are Zombies so nightmare-ish?
Once you get past the fact that they may not want a hug from you, they just want your flesh. You may rethink
on how you want to approach that very "sickly" friend of yours, but lets get back on track here, out of all the mythical monsters out there
Zombies seem more likely of happens in today's age due to the facts of chemical testing and our wild imaginations.

Zombies in today's culture have upgraded from the old black and white films of the dead slowly creeping up to their prey, to running zombies that feel no pain and will never grow tired of coming after a nibble of your flesh.

Zombies are everywhere due to the popularity in today's generation. You see our undead running in George. A Romero movies, video games by Valve Corporation Left 4 dead one and two, the remakes of popular stories like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and even drawn out comics with our favorite characters depicted as undead creatures.

How to destroy a reanimated corpse
In all stories that I have read, and through all the movies, video games ect. They all can be killed by
destroying the brain. They make it sound very simple, huh? Can you really learn how to wield a weapon in seconds in a zombie
apocalypse? This thought has crossed my mind in numerous "what if" scenarios, I do believe in an event of pure survival your instincts
will kick in and you will become a natural at keeping yourself alive. I know all of us cant have the awesome skills of Mila Jocovich from the Resident Evil movies.

Have you thought about your survival plan incase of a Zombie Apocalypse?
Even though this is a far fetched idea it would be great to have a back up plan just in case? "Oh no, zombies at the mall!" RUN AWAY!!!
"Oh no, my neighbor ate my little sister!"" RUN AWAY!!!
"Oh no, I think this Ninja is a Zombie." RUN AWAY!!!

In an event of pure undead craziness, I suggest you have a plan and always be creative. I can already tell you by looking into my
craft supplies that I have plenty of ideal weapons to protect myself. Yes, I am snickering to myself.

Its always better to embrace your fear. I will admit that I was afraid of these creatures, but since I have embraced my fear I now love
watching movies, playing games, writing stories and even crafting these undead cuddlies into my projects. I am not the only person that loves to
take something scary, creepy and make it into something cute and cuddling. Just check out some of the projects on this site and
remember be prepared in an event of a Zombie Apocalypse, by the way I live in Texas, you can always look me up if you want to
team up. Hahaha!
