Zombies would probably have a much better reputation if they cleaned themselves up a bit. Put on a bit of makeup, patch up some of those flesh holes, maybe even change out of the bloody rags once in a while. There’s no reason being dead should mean giving up your sense of style.
For some ideas on how to start your fashion reincarnation, all you walking dead out there might want to pick up a copy of the 2013 Year Of The Dead calendar, which bills itself as the first-ever lingerie calendar featuring zombie models. It’s slogan? “Rot never looked so hot!”
The YOTD lingerie edition is produced by the same team that created last year’s YOTD swimsuit calendar. The 2013 edition showcases 22 drop-dead gorgeous models (their pun, I swear!), including an adult film star named Bella Vendetta.
Lingerie used in the photoshoot was supplied by L.A. retailer Kandyland Lingerie, which specializes in discount vintage-esque styles.
Year Of The Dead has attracted quite a cult following, especially in the New England area where photographer Rocky Calsetta and makeup artist Shane Rausch cooked up the idea last year. The YOTD team now sells merchandise at horror conventions and hosts theme parties and makeup demonstrations throughout the year.
The only downside to this venture is that other zombies might find the calendar models a bit too hot. I mean, we don’t want those things to start breeding.
Here are some behind-the-scenes shots of the Year Of The Dead team working with their models for this year’s calendar.
