Title: Night of the Living Nemo
Post by: Falldog on January 14, 2011, 12:36:04 AM
Back in Oct 2009 I started working on four zombie themed Nemo kits. I finished two and shelved the other half completed kits.

Now, over a year later, I've finished the remaining two zombies and photographed them all together. Complete with dry ice.

I wrote up quite a bit on my effort which you can read here (http://otakurevolution.com/content/night-of-the-living-nemo-fin). I hope you like!

Haha, nice concept. Love it. The dry ice and poses are just cherries and sprinkles on top of a huge chocolate cake.

Thanks!

The Nemo seems to be the most glanced over GM suit. It's a fine kit too, like they used to make 'em.

You did create the fog by dry ice, awesome. I thought was computer effect before I read your wip.

Nice work - what would really tip this dio over the edge though is a Gundam done up like Michael Jackson in the Thriller video :D

I hate Zombies. And yet somehow, I LIKE THIS.

I know! Now that you have Zombie Nemos, you MUST build an MS-06S Zaku with a chainsaw for a right hand!!!
Shop Smart! Shop S-Mart!

I have a fifth, unbuilt one here. I think it's missing a part which I needed for one of these guys. I've been debating whether to paint him (thinking white and blue) or get rid of him. Bought five all at once on eBay for cheap :D

Won a batch of four on eBay for cheap awhile back, seller threw in a fifth one. I was going to do a Super Sentai kind of thing with them, until I came up with the zombie idea.

Thanks for the compliments, guys. ;D

Easily the most creative idea for a squad/team I have ever seen, and the variety and execution of the poses is just superb. The dry ice and the lighting set the scenario so well.

I'd really like to see some more shots of these guys if you have them Falldog.

My earlier comment I feel was probably a bit overlooked in terms of it's scope, but I really think this is some seriously progressive and intelligent gunpla modelling that is peerless in terms of it's creativity.

Brilliant. I really love it.

*Just went for a look ot your blog again and I remembered why I never commented in the first place, it was the 100 bloody points of ID required to make a comment. Lose the reCaptcha's on your comments forms guys..

There's only one captcha, and it's a necessity of the modern age. In the past 372 days the captcha has blocked 29223 spam attempts. Ask GG how his unprotected chat box is doing.

I'm glad you liked the poses. ;D I really tried to go for that zombie feel. It helps that the Nemo is such an awesome kit. Beautiful in it's simplicity yet extremely sturdy. I had zero issues posing them like that for the Thriller pose. I'd like to see someone try that with an unmodified 00 kit.

Also, I chronicled my build way back when, http://otakurevolution.com/content/night-of-the-living-nemo There are a bunch of pictures near the end of the first two completed. I also have everything in my flickr gallery, http://www.flickr.com/photos/mt_falldog/sets/72157605709051045/

Unfortunately the street display scene never came to be. Though I haven't put the concept to rest just yet...

If you fail the first reCaptcha, which is easy to do, you then have to complete a reCaptcha AND a captcha. I understand all to well the frustrations of blocking spam but I am a person who navigates quickly and if I have to proivide 100 points of ID to comment on your blog often I won't bother, nor will the majority of casual visitors to your site. Jussayin is all.

Heaps keen for the street display.

Haha if filling in 2 captcha's is too much effort what makes you think I would go to the trouble of registering an account? :facepalm: :D

Haha if filling in 1 captcha correctly is too much effort what makes you think I'd be able to register an account?
