From Romantically Apocalyptic episode 33, alexiuss aka Vitaly s. Alexius posta-pocalyptic webcomic

Romantically Apocalyptic is a humorous webcomic set in an insane, post-apocalyptic world created by Russian-born, Canadian deviantArt personality and artist Alexiuss (Vitaly S Alexius) using

“Photoshop, live actors, dead actors, sexy assistants, greenscreen, a camera, and a Wacom tablet. Each comic page is meticulously digitally painted and contains 6 years worth of textures: 1 terabyte of stock footage, shot in real abandoned, forgotten places of our world.”

#

There’s a (Internet) TV series in the making.

Fallout themed Russian LARP

The photos seem to originate from a Russian Livejournal-account with at least one post in English explaining what appears to be quite serious, non-facepalm inducing cosplaying/Live action roleplaying.

EDIT: Apparently these people play S.T.A.L.K.E.R. (great pics!) around the Chernobyl site as well (thx, Jonatan).

Photo essay: Hashima Island’s decaying ghost town

…formerly the most densely populated place on earth. After the essay was published, the town has been made available to tourists.

I’ve posted about ghost towns before.

Photos from a trip to Chernobyl

“…standing on the ‘bridge of death’ here. So called because on the day of the explosion, people gathered on this bridge to see the beautiful rainbow coloured flames of the burning graphite nuclear core, whose flames were higher than the smoke stack itself. They were all exposed to levels of over 500 roentgens, a fatal dose.”
