Full Size Zombie
If you’re looking to build a full size zombie that you can leave outside you’re going to need something that is a little more solid, and once again, Dr. Kreepy has just the tutorial you’re looking for.
The lower body is framed using 2 x 4’s for legs attached to a 1 x 6 waist while the spine, shoulders, and arms are crafted out of PVC. After the frame is in place you’ll need to bulk out the torso and the legs. You can certainly wrap the legs and body with foam and duct tape it tight, or you can use the Dr. Kreepy method and use balled up newspaper or plastic.
When mounting it you can use a plywood base and screw the legs to it, otherwise you can grab a pair of old boots and throw in some quick drying cement. You’ll need to add your favorite mask and a pair of prop hands if they’ll be visible.
Items needed to complete this include:
- 2 – 2×4 approximately 35″
- 1 – 1 x 6 appoximately 17″
- 1 – 20″ 2 x 4
- 6 pieces 3/4 PVC
- 4 – 3/4″90 degree PVC
- 3/8″ or thicker 2′ x 2′ plywood
- Old clothes
- Skull or mask
- Duct Tape
- Newspaper or foam
