My zombie prop from 2008

This video shows the basics I use for my static props. They are easy to build and display well. When positioned right, the people have a hard time to distinguish them from our real actors.

Here are new pics of the completed zombie project. The hands are from Haunted house props, special effects, supplies and custom products for your haunted attraction., male urethane curled hands (pair). These and the suit was weathered using spray paint.

This is great stuff, I had problems last year with my zombies/props because I made the entire body with PVC only. (they tipped over very easy)
I will try to copy your body frame as it loos to be very solid.
Hi, the frame is solid. You may have to make the frame and stand it up in the shoes/boots to balance out. Once the basic stance is done and it is on its own, go ahead and start adding the cement. All the while your pushing it in with a stick towards the bottom areas. Once it is completely filled, you will know if it will stand up or tip. Leave this assembly set over night. DO NOT MOVE UNTIL IT IS HARD. Even if it does tip over in your display, just place a board behind the leg and strap it. Your never know if there will be a windy day with your display .

Great how to video. Looking @ pic #3, just put a couple more of those zombies in your yard and you have a great night of the living dead scene going on there. :) Where did you get your mask and where do you make your lucky trash runs? How heavy is this puppy too?
