You probably remember the face huggers from the Alien movies. They're those nightmare-inducing life forms with long tentacles that suction themselves over your mouth, nose, and eyes. But who ever would think to come up with a face-hugger turkey? Hellen Die, that's who. Die (real name: Beckie Lombardi), a chef and food stylist, has made quite the impression with culinary concoctions that blend traditional American fare with the creepiest and most disturbing creatures from film and television. Her horrifying Thanksgiving turkey is both inspiring in its artistry and repulsive in its spot-on similarity to the Alien monster.
Die, who has a day job at a tech company, is devoted to whimsically blending the dark arts with her love of cooking and food. Her website, the The Necro-Nom-Nom-Nomicon, contains a trove of recipes and witty insights into her unusual passion. Her recipes have drawn considerable attention, and her website has won several awards – all of which demonstrate the impressive extent of Die's talents... even if her own family is less than appreciative.
