NERDY snow sculptures header

It’s freezing and more or less miserable in several places across the globe right now. Snow’s been falling continually in my neck of the woods, but I’m trying to make the best of it. One way to brighten up the gray chill is by playing outside. A yard full of snow is like an empty canvas just waiting to be formed into sculptures, and characters from pop culture make perfect fodder. Check out our round-up of six geeky snow sculptures to get inspired!

The Walking Dead fans at NYCC got a rare chance to see incredible art and actual props from the series at a special gallery show celebrating the tenth anniversary of the comic. A Decade of Dead was just a few blocks away from the convention in the Pillars 37 art gallery, and they even had the Hyundi Veloster Zombie Survival Machine that debuted at San Diego Comic Con earlier this year.

The walls were full of original artwork and tables held some of the most famous props from the series. Rick’s hat was there along with his well-worn Sheriff’s bag. It sat right next to Daryl Dixon’s crossbow, which would come in handy for shooting the zombies hanging out on the opposite wall.

There were busts of zombies on one table as well as full-size zombies including both of Michonne’s pets with their missing jaws. They all looked very nearly as disgusting in person as they do on the screen and it was hard to turn your back on them and walk away for fear they’d sneak up and take a bite out of you.

nycc walking dead car

There are some cool cars in the world of pop culture and a bunch of them are on display at New York Comic Con this year! Hyundai debuted their new Santa Fe Zombie Survival Machine and even had it opened up so you could sit inside, spin the gun turret, and take a photo.

The biggest display came from Chevy who had a little fleet of cars wrapped with images of your favorite comics. I particularly liked the one themed to Adventure Time because who wouldn’t want to drive around with those cuties on their car?

Oh, and Lola was there, too and she was beautiful. I tried to get a closer picture but there were those ropes in the way and, although Agent Coulson was nowhere to be found, I didn’t trust that there wasn’t some invisible field that would zap me back to the Dark Ages if I dared come t0o close.
