‘Rise Again’ Author Ben Tripp Helps Fans Have A Very Zombie Christmas

By December 17, 2012

Ben Tripp, author of the zombie thriller Rise Againhas done something really cool for his fans.  On his website he’s created some incredible downloadable zombie-related Christmas crafts. Zombie and crafts together at last? Be still my non-beating heart!  Some of the offerings include Christmas cards, which are way more awesome than anything by Hallmark. My personal favorite is this adorable zombie child in the style of Disney artist Mary Blair.

There’s also a funny New Yorker parody:

And a charming Mary Blair-esque Santa. ‘Season’s Eatings’ indeed!

In addition to the cards, he has some kick-ass ornament downloadables.

And don’t forget to spread your zombie cheer when you hand out presents! Death by candy cane…brutal, yet also exactly like biting into a York Peppermint Patty.

His most stunning creation has to be this Zombie nativity.

I also found this cool Zombie snowflake template, not by Tripp but still worthy of your craft scissors.

There’s a bunch of other non-Christmas stuff for you to download as well.  A few of them I think would make excellent stocking stuffers. Like these wound stickers:

Or perhaps some Zombie glasses? Much more disturbing than anything your inappropriate uncle will say after imbibing too much at Christmas dinner.

If you’re a zombie fanatic, then you might wanna check out Tripp’s website. He also has a Rise Again fan page on Facebook, where you can cyber-canoodle with fellow zombie lovers and get updates on the Rise Again sequel.

What’s your favorite zombie-related merchandise? Let us know in the comments!
