    Quick thought on “fully clothed zombies,” as it’s come up before, and will likely do so again:

    Beyond the obvious production (more, cheap costumes = less, expensive makeup) and transmission (decency standards) reasons, wouldn’t better covered zombies have lasted longer? Bared flesh is more open to elements, to damage; so less well-dressed walkers might have become immobile/inactive after year-and-a-half.

    Doesn’t explain early months, but now…

    Thanks for a great show, whatever you wear while making it!

      V. good points Thomas. I have had other issues, i.e. the female leads wearing obvious makeup, especially mascara on the people with naturally lighter coloured eyelashes, like Beth and Lizzie, but even though it bothered me aesthetically I considered it too superficial a thing to bring up; but I always wanted to mention it. The overly dressed walking dead is very interesting! Now that it’s out there, I can think of many examples…
