Zombie wedding portraits for your dearly beloved/deceased #Sponsors: Photographers#gifts#horror wedding#zombies August 14 2009 | Ariel arielmstallings This business paid a fee to be listed on Offbeat Bride because they feel their products and services are a great fit with offbeat philosophies… and we agree. Learn more about our ads. I LOVE THIS. What better gift for your zombie betrothed than a hand-painted zombie portrait of the two of you by artist Rob Sacchetto, author/illustrator of The Zombie Handbook: How to identify the living dead and survive the coming zombie apocalypse. The photo above shows a before & after of one Offbeat Bride-reading couple. On the left: their lovely wedding portrait. On the right? ZOMBIFICATION. The process is pretty simple: you send Rob a clear, high resolution jpeg of you and your beloved (or your bridesmaid, or your groomsmen, or your mother-in-law), and he'll works his illustrative magic. This is definitely a, uh, one-of-a-kind gift.

"Braaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiins" "Well, now that was quick." Reply This is so awesome, I want one!! Reply TOTALLY bookmarking this for a first anniversary present–too freaking awesome! Reply Me too! Awesome 1st anniversary gift. We're getting married the day before Halloween this year too, so even better. Reply Ok, whoa. This is too weird. My now husband drew us as zombies back when we started dating as my birthday present! Check us out! http://jackhook.deviantart.com/art/zombie-date-5-55575276 Of course, our vows included the phrase "I promise to love and respect even after we are nothing but shambling brain-hungry monsters, interested only in human flesh and each other." Reply I love this!!! In fact, our wedding is on Halloween and after the ceremony we are being turned into zombies for the reception!! What a great way to commemorate the day!!! Reply "The gift that keeps on living." Possibly the funniest line I've ever read. Reply YEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!! Good God. Reply Looks really really cool but I wonder how many wives are thrilled about this kind of gifts:) Reply Poroka, judging from the comments from Offbeat Brides — the wives are the ones buying these gifts for their husbands. Gender assumptions about interests in zombies don't really fly in these parts. 😉 Reply I had one of these portraits done with one of our wedding photos… It is fantastic! Cannot rave about Zombie Rob's work enough 🙂 Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
