shaun of the knitted dead

It was bound to happen, wasn't it?
Shaun of the Dead is one of the best films ever. EVER. I can't tell you how excited I was when I heard they were making this movie, and the world is a better place because of it. I love you, Edgar and Simon.
This film is like Spaced the Movie, only with ZOMBIES and if you can think of a better combo than that, I would like to hear about it. You can't think of one, can you? That's because there isn't one. Look - if you don't like Shaun of the Dead, there's no way we would ever get along. That's all there is to it.

do something!

  1. Those are terrific! Oh my god, I love those!!!! Shaun of the Dead is excellent, one of my favorite movies ever, and your dolls are unbelievably cool. I think you should make a book of these knitted Zombie dolls. Seriously, knit them, photograph them acting out scenes from the movie, and make a book. I would run to buy it.

  2. I know this is the wrong place to admit you have never seen Dawn of the dead but I have seen Shaun of the dead (because my husband loves dawn of hte dead) and it was hysterical. I love these dolls! Great job, you really should make a book.

  6. Those zombies are awesome. I just wanted you to know that I'm cloning Mr. Dangly. He's posted on my blog. Thanks for sharing the pattern. I really like yours so much better.

  8. I love them. You are uber-talented and I have to agree - I would definitely buy a book of your doll patterns!

  9. These are phenominal.
    I found them through your flickr account (which I found by typing in "Zombie" in the tags search) and these are absolutely brilliant. Not only is your knitting skill amazing, but your little photographed scenarios are hillarious.
    I showed my husband and he said, "Wow, that's a really good Shaun."
    I love how Ed has a day and a half of stubble.
    Excellent and hillarious. I envy your toy-making skill and hope that the next time you have knitted zombies up for auction that I can get in on the bidding!
    Incidentally, do you do comission work?

  10. Oh. My. God. I know this is a very late comment to this post, but I just had to tell you that you are amazing! Your Shaun is a remarkable likeness (you've got red on you)! Shaun of the Dead is a favorite movie of mine and my husband. We honeymooned in England in October 2005, and I wanted to go find "The Winchester" but I read that they were tearing it down or renovating it into something else, or something like that. However, we did choose our hotel in London strictly because it was called The Winchester Hotel (and it was nice, thank goodness!).

    Oh yeah, and as you are as you are a Savini/Romero fan, I just wanted to mention that the closest shopping mall to our house is Monroeville Mall :)

  14. I TOTALLY agree that you should write a book! I'd buy it, too! I love zombie movies, too, and loved the Shawn of the Dead and Dawn of the Dead commentary (as you mentioned in your brilliant Dawn of the Dead knitting post!). Amazing! I wish I were this talented! I'm still just knitting scarves!
