Happy October folks! This is less a diy, more a why not try this type of post...here in a-go-go land zombie-making is a family affair (though, truthfully, all I did here was help pick out the jacket and tie). A frame was built, and clothing stuffed with newspaper and a smidge o' hay.
The head was made by stuffing a paper grocery sack with newspaper and the smooching and shaping it with masking tape. Afterwards it was wrapped in paste-soaked newspaper and allowed to dry. Once dry, paint and paintbrushes made an appearance.
While the head dried, the shoes were made to look old and bloody, red paint was added to the body and a request was made to find some sort of hair (a wig was eventually re-appropriated).
The head was affixed to a stick and jammed into the body and viola! We had a zombie on the lawn!
