As you can probably tell from the image above, The Walking Dead Dead Yourself photo app is truly a thing of beauty. With little-to-no physical effort on your part, you can transform your face (or the grinning visage of a loved one) into a putrid, oozing, undead nightmare — doesn't that sound like fun?
The app is being released as part of a big push to remind you that season three of The Walking Dead is returning from hiatus on February 10 (as if you could forget) — and in celebration we're hosting another contest.
All you have to do to enter is download the free Dead Yourself app here, snap your very own zombified photo (it's so easy!), and email your pic to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our favorites will be featured right here on the site, and one lucky walker will zombie-stumble away with an extra special prize package (spoiler alert: it includes a Daryl bobblehead and season 2 DVDs among other goodies).
Make sure to send us your entries by 6pm ET on February 3, and then tune in for the return of The Walking Dead, February 10 at 9/8C — only on AMC.
Standard contest rules apply. Only open to US residents. Readers may also enter by sending their photo and their contact information to Gawker Media, Attn: "Dead Yourself Contest", 210 Elizabeth Street, Third Floor, New York NY 10012. The contest begins on January 28 at 11:59am EST and ends on February 8 at 11:59pm EST
