Zombie Torso, Part 2

I'll make a man of my scarecrow, were it only for the joke's sake!
Hawthorne, Nathaniel. Feathertop: A Moralized Legend

Here is the torso with the head attached; collar bones and shoulder blades have also been added. He's really starting to look alive - so to speak.

The white color is masony water-proofing paint to make him a little more durable.


Front
Vertebrae are pieces from egg-cartons attached to the PVC spine. I want bumps to be visible once the flesh is added - for that emaciated look.

Shoulder blades are cardboard; collar bones are rolled-up tubes of newspaper.

Back
Lots of work still to be done!:
  • Attach limbs
  • Insert eyeballs
  • Attach back of head; hair
  • Add decaying flesh, internal organs, etc.
  • Painting
  • Clothes (optional)
I got lots of how-to tips on zombie construction from The Devil's Workshop. Check it out for haunt ideas!
