Latest Project: Zombie Walk 2009

A group of zombie enthusiasts from the locally run Oshkosh Horror website are orchestrating a zombie walk in my town. On the first saturday of each month, the downtown shops host what is called Gallery Walk. Cooperating stores are transformed into art galleries that display the work of local artists. On September 5, 2009, a more unconventional piece will be on display.

That evening, a horde will be assembled, painted, splashed with corn syrup and food coloring, and sent rambling down Main Street among those attending gallery walk. It should be a sight to behold.

There is also going to be an after-party to benefit Time Cinema, which is in much need of rejuvenation. At this after-party there will be zombie-related prizes donated by area businesses. This is where I come in. Inspired by Max Brooks' Zombie Survival Guide, I will be creating a zombie apocalypse survival kit - for your cat.

Here is the first of my four catnip toys that will be given away as a prize for one of the many contests that will be held at the after-party. A kitty-sized Molotov Cocktail.

I can't wait to work on the rest.


  1. I don't know about catnip. Isn't that the same as crack for cats???

  2. I used to think that it was like "kitty crack," but it's actually perfectly safe for cats to "use." :o)

  3. Your shop is so cute!

  4. Can't wait to see the rest of the Feline version of the Zombie Survival kit!

  5. Thanks, Indy Grrrl! I just checked out your Etsy shop and added it to my favorites. :o)
