the zombie Little People will walk the earth.
Sunday night, my wife and I were picking up our daughter’s collection of vintage Fisher Price Little People that she received a few years ago for Christmas. These are old, worn out Little People that my sister bought at a garage sale, so many of them have seen better days. One in particular was really torn up, to the point that most of its hair was missing from the top of its head. I picked this one up and said, “Looks like a zombie got hold of her.”
Ya know how in the Bugs Bunny cartoon there’s a little light bulb that’s visible over someone’s head when they’ve had a really good idea? That moment occurred for both my wife and me, when I said those words. The next thing we knew we were on our way to Michael’s to pick up supplies.
And this has been the culmination of a couple of nights’ work since then. We’ve chosen only the most messed up, torn up, chewed up, dirty Little People we can find for this little project, but considering the subject matter, that’s exactly what we want. It’s been a lot of fun and we have other ideas in mind that we’ll hopefully get moving on in time for Halloween. So keep checking back – or follow me on Twitter to look for updates – and we’ll post again soon.
This is the one that started it all…
The blood on her is pretty fresh, so she was just recently turned.
Here’s a comparison to the living Little People (Person?) these two lovely ladies are based on.
This is also the same mold.
