The Walking Dead Costumes 1

The licensing machine is revved up and in full effect, churning out "The Walking Dead" merchandise. One of the latest batches are these "el cheapo" Halloween style zombie masks. It is a bit unfortunate that a show / comic with above average makeup / zombie designs, would end up with generic looking merch. The staff at Zombie-Makeup.com would implore you to please seek out indie mask artisans and purchase your zombie masks from them, as opposed to wasting your hard earned cash on one of these sad masks.

Walking Dead Season 2 First Look

Here is a nice look at some zombie makeups from the second season of The Walking Dead, that just began filming in and around Atlanta. Hopes are high, as this looks to be a full 13 episode season to premiere in the fall.

Producer/Director/Writer/Badass  Frank Darabont had this to say.........

"At this moment, I'm standing on a stretch of post-apocalypse interstate in Georgia, littered with abandoned cars and blessing my good luck to be reunited with our amazing cast, and our fantastic directors and crew. Across the board, there are none better. It's great to be shooting again. I think we've embarked on a great season."

Oh... and cool contacts!!

KNB Zombie Makeup News Transformation

A zombie makeup fx video showing some behind the scenes of “Land of the Dead.” Its a few years old, but still contains some sweet Zombie Gore and makeup explanations.

How To Make A Deep Flesh Wound

This is a interesting zombie makeup video showing the basic construction of a wound with wax (more subtle and controllable than latex and paper or cotton). Using wax and a spatula is a great way to create varried wounds when continuity is not an issue.

Zombie Makeup Demo 2d

Not really a tutorial, but a demo showing the use of highlight and shadow. Amazing effects can be achieved using only the illusion of form and light. This technique is more like painting than traditional makeup.
