I'm going to try and make a knock off from the distortions prop that was at Transworld where the zombie/actor is getting electrocuted and his arms are flailing around then the actor runs out. I think it's called Zombie shock. Anyway, i can't afford that so i'm going to make it. I can handle all of it but the arms. How would you get some fake arms to flail around like that without using $$$$$ parts. Let me know some ideas!!
AND GO!!!

I have started to build one, and so far it it working out pretty good.

I used 6 in PVC pipe for the restraints, and for the arm shackles. and 3/4 in for the arms using this guide. You will need:

3/4 in PVC pipes
4 - 3/4 in PVC end caps
4 Threaded eye hooks

You Tube has a videos ( Search Articulating PVC Arm - I cant post links yet.)

I attached 2 fake prop hands and used a good will overall to finish the arms. I also used plastic grocery bags with News Paper stuffed inside for filler. I attached prop chains I got from walmart and going to use those to make the arms shake, Im still trying to engineer that part. Will take more picture and add.
