Zombie Torso

From a small seed a mighty trunk may grow.

Here's the latest progress on my zombie. I wanted to see how hard it would be to make a skeleton (and zombie) from the burial ground up.
Honestly, it's a lot of work! (I'm dead tired.)

The spine is PVC pipe, the ribs are rolled-up newspaper and the pelvis is PVC and cardboard. Yes, I know the rib count isn't anatomically correct.
You can't tell from this image but the spine has a slight 'S' curve - just like in real zombies!

I was fortunate to have some honey-comb cardboard on hand, about 3/4" thick, to construct the pelvis. A little creative use of PVC piping and voila!

Hmmm ... the pelvis looks too narrow. I may have to make some modifications.
(Those ain't no birthin' hips!) In any case, it'll all look much better with decaying flesh on it.
