Dead Sexy: Literally, A Zombie-Themed Beauty Book

Usually when we call something "dead sexy," we're not talking about zombies. Today, though, we are actually talking about zombies. Dead Sexy: The Unofficial Walking Dead Fan Guide to Zombie Style, Beauty, Parties, and a Ghoul-Lurching Unlifestyle by Paula Conway came out this week, and it's so delightfully dorky that we couldn't not tell you about it.
Let's cut to the chase here. This is a book about zombie beauty. Actually, it's the second edition of a book about zombie beauty, meaning there's a real market for this situation. A market that's hungry for brains content.
So, what does a book about zombie beauty and lifestyle involve? It's based on the premise that we are already living in a zombie apocalypse. Fun! To that effect, it details zombie etiquette and dating guidelines, as well as undead travel destinations. It also has actual deals, offering "deep" discounts on real-life beauty products. The publisher is calling this aspect of the book "an exclusive private sale." When we think of exclusive private sales, we generally picture zombie-like shoppers anyway, so that's not so weird.
With more than 60 different companies offering flash sales within the book, it's a truly immersive experience. We're a solid mix of terrified and intrigued. But, there's nothing wrong with starting to prep for Halloween in March, right?
Paula Conway, Dead Sexy: The Unofficial Walking Dead Fan Guide to Zombie Style, Beauty, Parties, and a Ghoul-Lurching Unlifestyle, $9.99, available at Riverdale Ave Books.
