Lego Zombies Celebrate Gay Pride and Ride the Carousel of Doom

The Zombie Apocafest has once again overrun the Lego lovers' convention BrickCon. For the past two years, fans of both colorful plastic bricks and the undead have come together to create an enormous diorama of the zombie apocalypse.

Last year was the inaugural voyage of the Zombie Apocafest, organized by the Brothers Brick, and this year, the collaborative diorama doubled in size. Seventeen tables were filled with fortified buildings, zombie killing machines, and of course hordes of the undead. Participants created their own original pieces or "apocafied" existing Lego sets, resulting in a handful of oddball creations like the zombie killing gay pride float and a black and red carousel populated with skeletal horses.

A full set of Apocafest images are up on Flickr, but take a good long look. This will be the last year for zombies, and the Brothers Brick have already cooked up a new theme for next year's BrickCon.

A few of those scenes look like they are from "Land of the Dead", especially the zombies walking into the lake.

Love the idea of using a combine to kill zombies.
