This first one is a big zombie I did for nerdcore artist ZeaLouS1. We both share a love for zombies and thought this would be a fitting fan art present.




And this is a zombie for Andrea up in MA. She bought a personalized zombie and sent pics for me to work off of.



She stands at 9" tall and ZeaLouS1 stands at 8.75"

These are very cool! I especially like the missing eye on the first one. The cover-up bandana is very clever.

If you don't mind me asking, how do you create these? Are they painted stuffies? At any rate, they're great.

Wow! I absolutely love these!! How well does the paint hold up on the fabric with wear and tear and how exactly do you go about making something like this??

(I'd love to give it a try myself!!)

The cover up bandana is what he actually wears!!


I make them by sewing muslin together, then stuffing it with polyfil, base coat it with gesso, then start painting. When all the details are done I go in and add the gore.

They hold up really well. I used to spray clear it but they stink afterwards and I don't want to send people chemical smelling crafts!

They are still somewhat soft. A little crunchy at times, but still squishy.

I was wondering when we were going to see some new zombies!  They look great, I esp. love the first, good job with both though.  I've been saving my money to be able to go see my dad (just learned that he was going to have double bypass surgery as well as having an artery in his neck cleared out- scary because it's so close to his brain, did you know pieces of the stuff they're clearing out in his artery could float up there and give him a stroke?  I didn't.) but when I'm done with that if he's o.k. I promise I'm getting one!  Good job and keep making more, we all love to see them!

Seeing the real picture of him just makes the bandana that much more clever. I love it!

Thank you. I think that's his trademark and I wanted to use it in his zombie. I used an old bandana that my bunny chews on for his. Just cut it down to fit and covered it with some paint.

I have 4 more orders on this large one and I don't have any more bandanas!

Guess I'll have to make them and go out and buy some cheap bandanas from JoAnn's or something.

Anyway, I'm happy you all like them. The girl from MA received her zombie and loves it, which I happy to hearI was sweating it.

Here is the zombie with it's owner ZeaLouS 1. It took longer than expected to arrive so we all thought it was lost in the mail. Luckily it arrived on Tuesday.
