theres a trend for photographers to offer zombie themed photo shoots, a photographer in america did a set of the scenes from the walking dead using children? when we know how abhorrent it would be for the theme to be sexual why is violence ok? isnt dressing up and posing children in adult themes then taking photos for the adults gratification a form of abuse? and why would anyone want a picture of their child as the undead?

What do you let your kids dress up as for Halloween? Candyfloss?

Another thread that means absolutely nothing to me. Is this actually a thing?

Sticking on some face paint, acting like a zombie and taking photos is not abuse ffs.

DS will LOVE it!!!!!

I certainly wouldn't do it as I have a zombie phobia but if parents want to zombify their children, doesn't bother me

I can't imagine the children were forced into it against their will. It sounds like the sort of thing they'd find fun.

My DS would absolutely love this, zombies are his thing just now!

I'm guessing you are one of the people who complained

DixieNormas Thu 08-Sep-16 20:47:09

I had to google to have a look. All could find was a dm article out it. I cant bring myself to care tbh

That sounds BRILLIANT!!

What has dressing up as a zombie got to do with violence?!

Namechangenurseryconcerns Thu 08-Sep-16 20:49:18

I hate it. It makes me extremely uncomfortable and would probably give me nightmares!
I also hate children dressing up in gruesome things at Halloween Paul
Each to their own I guess but definitely not for me!

Have you seen that little girl in the first season of the walking dead? She's clutching a teddy and half her face is chewed off. Best series ever completely misses the point of thread

DixieNormas Thu 08-Sep-16 20:50:12

If its those ones up there^ im even less fussed

The dm article does have a pic of a child pointing a gun at another Childs head which is a bit hmmm but that's it

DixieNormas Thu 08-Sep-16 20:51:40

The op said scenes from twd, which sounds more like the one's I've seen rather than just dressed up as zombies

DD1 has been a zombie at Halloween for the last 3 years and I've got pretty good at the make up but a professional photo shoot would go go down a storm with my bunch!
Thanks OP, I'd never heard of this before! smile

DixieNormas Thu 08-Sep-16 20:53:52

here's the dm link which is a bit different

Bigfam Thu 08-Sep-16 20:53:54

Here's the little girl in twd

Soubriquet Thu 08-Sep-16 20:55:49

Do you have problems with children in horror movies in general OP?

gamerchick Thu 08-Sep-16 20:59:34

Eee are they trying to say that lucielle killed glen?!

DixieNormas Thu 08-Sep-16 21:02:23

Here's one, it wouldn't let me save the gun to the head one

DixieNormas Thu 08-Sep-16 21:03:17

It looks like it gamer grin
