How I came to be Zombie Slave Princess Leia - and - The Wonder that is Zombie Artist Byron Rempel

It started out innocently enough when I criticized some pretty bad Star Wars cosplay in a post. +Halfdan Reschat, always on the ready to instigate some mischief, challenged me to do better. I very quickly pulled my brother +Keith Cramer into it and soon Keith and I were competing in a costume contest and the loser would have to dress up as Slave Princess Leia in an online public hangout. I lost. All the details and links to posts and video are in my profile, for the brave of heart and not weak of stomach.

Flash forward quite a bit and another mischievous friend (hello +Kyla Myers) surprised me with an anonymous zombification as part of the very talented +byron rempel's 1000 Zombies Art Project (+1000 zombies). Slave Princess Leia is proudly Zombie #178. :-)

Flash forward some more, and I was interacting with Byron on a post talking about some of his wonderful zombie shirt designs. I asked if he could make Zombie #178 available as a shirt and by the end of the night, there it was! He tweaked the design a bit for me and put up a couple versions. The man is not only insanely talented, he is a super nice guy. I waited until the latest season of The Walking Dead premiered and both +Kristi Fahlsing and I ordered shirts. Kristi was not originally in the market for a zombie me on her chest, but she really liked the second design Byron put up. Earlier today +Kari Tedrick ordered one like Kristi's, but in purple. So, now I am not only Zombie #178, but I'm part of the Zombie #178 Army.

Thank you so much +Halfdan Reschat, +Keith Cramer, +Kyla Myers+byron rempel, and the glue that put us all together, G+ (so +Vic Gundotra gets the tag) for a wacky and fun sequence of events leading me to my new favorite shirt. I have determined since it is a zombie that it doesn't make me vain to say that. Right? ;-)
