You might remember that in a earlier post I blogged about Sock Zombies, these delightfully weird creatures made by the Etsy seller Underroos. I thought that they were so unique that I submitted them to BoingBoing.net. (BoingBoing is a great site. Check it out if you haven't already.) And http://www.boingboing.net/BoingBoing featured them late last month!
Well, Underroos ended up selling more than 50 Sock Zombies in just a few days. And, in appreciation, she sent me a Sock Zombie for my very own!
It's a large toe-horned throwing zombie, as you can tell from the 3 small nubbins on the top of her left horn and the 2 slightly larger nubbins on the right. She has slightly glazed and maniacal, yet not unkind, look in her eyes.
She is pictured lying on my couch in my work room where she guards my beads from the undead.
My daughter, Emma, has taken quite a liking to her and gave her her cherished Hannah Montana wig.
I think the wig is definitely a nice touch, don't you?
