In case you have not been able to figure out, I am a huge fan of AMC's The Walking Dead and I am sitting on the edge of my seat for this weekend's Season 8 premiere!

So why not steer into the skid?

I was very lucky to have makeup and special affects artist Valerie Jerue of Valerie's Colorful Creations come in and transform me into the dead right before your very eyes.

And I'm not gonna lie, the transformation is no joke. Check it out in the video above!

And then...what fun would it be putting on all this makeup if we did not put it to good use? There may have been some pranks going on around the office for the rest of the afternoon. I'm sorry, but I am really not.

Only a few more days until we can hear those six beautiful words...."Previously on AMC's The Walking Dead..."
