@MrsPinkBONBON: I guess we should just ban Halloween while we’re at it.

I think these are great, and I bet the kids had fun.  Very cool idea.

These are AMAZING.  Just sent the link to Fiance.  Pretty sure he’s gonna want to do it.

Are all those people the bridal party?  Cause that’d be even more awesome.

@Beluga: HAHAHA Zombie Boudoir session FTW.

@Ahone: I think it goes a little too far to say that these photos are “basically in support of violence against mothers and children”. That is obviously not the intent here, and just because a lot of people are squeemish about firearms does not mean you can’t incorporate them into a whimsical and hilarious photoshoot. You are clearly sensitive to gory imagery but it is one thing to have a visceral reaction and another to accuse these people of supporting violence against babies because they rubbed some ketchup on a nephews head and played around with toy (or unloaded) guns for a couple hours to simulate a horror movie. Let’s not get carried away here.

@deetroitwhat: I think @MisPinkBONBON is referring to the shot of the mother and child having a gun aimed at them.  Also, there are shots where a child is being sighted down a rifle barrel.  People do not walk from house to house aiming guns at babies and young children while trick or treating.  The picture with the baby’s head bleeding is only supported by the photo where a gun is pointed at their head.  It does not stand alone.

Saying you should just ‘ban Halloween’ has no connection whatsoever to her argument and is completely inane.  Yes, kids walk around on Halloween with bloody faces and costume make up.  They don’t walk around with an adult female aiming a gun at their head as they go door to door.  There is a BIG difference between the two.

Very creative, not my cup of tea though. I find the whole thing a little weird.  I hate anything having to do with Zombies, sooooo. . .yeah 🙂

@MrsPinkBONBON: Again, this is a visceral reaction you are having because of your own personal experiences, not a rational reaction to some people playing around in a completely safe (and clearly parentally approved) way.

@Floridagirl2010: These images are now on the internet.  I know they are not real, just like children in video games.  You still cannot hurt children in most video games, so why should it be ok to freeze frame a moment in time in the real world where a mother and a baby have a gun aimed at their heads and then distribute it on the internet?  There are violent people out there who enjoy looking at images like that.  I don’t see the point in feeding their fetish.  Not only that, it sends the wrong message to everyone else that this kind of thing is ok.

I’m not saying the adult-only images of zombies are wrong.  I’m just completely against involving kids in this sort of thing.

@Ahone: But this has nothing to do with video games. People in video games are using avatars to act out fantasies- THAT’S why you can’t kill children in them- killing children should not be anyone’s fantasy! An engagement photoshoot is not a forum wherein the fantasies of strangers are lived out. Also, it’s not as if these people are sending these images around to be distributed as some kind of sadist pornography! These are (assumably) their friends and family members, and if the mother of that child saw fit to enact a ridiculous scenario having nothing to do with violence and everything to do with having fun and reenacting silly zombie movies, then why is it unacceptable to you?

@Ahone: Inane?  Zombies and Halloween have no connection at all?  Fake blood sold during the holiday for Dracula? 

You’re taking this too far.  Plain and simple.  Next it’ll be water guns or something.

@Floridagirl2010: That’s just it – they don’t have to send them out.  A ton of strangers have viewed them already just by the link being posted on this forum.  I don’t know the couple at all, so I qualify as a stranger. Who is to say there isn’t someone on here who likes looking at images like these or knows someone who does?  Once they are uploaded all it takes is for the link to be replicated or the images to be downloaded.  Anyone can see them now and they can be put up on any other website out there catering to the kind of crowd that appreciates that kind of violence.

Saying these images have nothing to do with violence is clearly in error.  I can remind you:

How are these not depicting violence?  You do not need an avatar to act out a fantasy, as these images clearly show.

@deetroitwhat: You missed my point.  I am pointing out that aiming guns at babies does not and should not have a connection to Halloween.  That is all.  I never said zombies or fake blood were not connected to Halloween.

@Ahone: They are not depicting violence because there is not violence going on to be depicted! Linking to the images is unnecessary. I viewed them all. What I see depicted is a loving family of people with good senses of humor who appreciate horror movie parodies.

 

Also, saying that posting these is wrong because someone could post them to some kind of sadist porn website is paranoid.  Should no one ever post a baby photo online because it could be posted to a pedophilic website?

 

And again, no one is living out their fantasies in this photoshoot the way one might in a videogame. Comparing this to a video game continues to be an error.

I am pro-firearms, but it’s disturbing to me that they are using real guns and pointing them at children.

I think this is a neat idea for engagement pics.  As far as the kids being involved, if the parents think it’s ok, then who are we to judge?  Ultimately it is the parents’ decision what is acceptable for their children, so to debate whether or not it is “right” is a moot point.
