This is Bub, the sweet and lovable zombie star of Day of the Dead:

He has his own copy of Salem's Lot, a gun (for shooting bad military guys), and a late-night snack.
I originally made a 3.5" Bub doll as part of the zombie swap, and then received a request to make a larger version for a personal swap.  This was the result.
He stands about a foot high, and is mostly made of felt, paint, and yarn.  His accessories are also all felt, and fabric, so they are squishable. 

Some more pics:

Mmm....guts.


And one for scale:

We're a cute couple, no?

Awesome!  I agree with jane dough, that he's cute and gross at the same time.  The bucket of snacks was great touch.  Wink
