Day in the life of a zombie (pictures)

It's good to be the Zombie King -- especially when you get to drop in at the salon and have a cigarette with your admirers.

Makeup

Joseph Rarach is the co-owner of a special-effects makeup studio in Prague known as Studio FX. While this amazing steampunk Zombie King looks good enough to feature in a movie, Rarach and his partner, Vlad Taupesh, created it with his team for his city's annual zombie walk.

Here Pan (that's Czech for "mister") King begins his day at a spa wondering if he might benefit from a little sun-protection cream. Our guess? Probably not.

How can I work with THAT?!

The Zombie King is ready to be made beautiful for his big day on the zombie walk, but what's a stylist to do with that, um, hair?

Debit or credit?

Hmm, Mr. King doesn't look too pleased about having to put the treatment on his credit card. Don't those fools know he could just crack open their skulls with his teeth? Ah well, maybe he needs the points.

Say 'brains!'

Now feeling a bit more glamorous, our Zombie King smiles (at least we think that's what you call it) for the camera.

Cigarette break

Hey Zombie King, don't you know those things will kill...uh, right. Never mind.

Post-parade party time

Would you follow this guy back to his room?

Late-night snack

For humans, our stomachs rumble when we're hungry. For the Zombie King, it looks like his eyes glow orange. As if Prague's streets weren't spooky enough at night!

Brains AND bling!

Looks like the Zombie King scored a little more than just brains from his last meal. He got some bling too! Well played, Zombie King. Well played.
