Originally I was thinking the coffin... How about you answer both :D?
The coffin isn't super heavy so in this picture it's just leaning up against a shepherds hook. I'll have it leaning against the house when on display. The corpse is supported a few different ways. The
The ribcage area is wired to the coffin frame and the plastic I used to corpse it is melted right into the burlap adding more support.

Awesome build! You even one-upped me! I never mentioned how I mounted the body in mine. I supported the corpse with a block of 4x4 behind the neck and another behind the spine just above the pelvis. That was the reason for the strip of wood lathe down the back of mine- to screw the blocks into. Works fine for a static prop but wouldn't have worked with the mechanics you put in.

Thanks Nightfisher! Now that I borrow your ideas, can I borrow the web shooter? I'm kidding.
