My cousin asked me to make her a Zombie doll for her car, which is called a "Zombie Mobile"  and I never made a Zombie before. Any ideas on how to make one? Like what color do I use for the skin and any thing that may look good? I was thinking of doing this for Christmas and sadly, I'm not the greatest at creating patterns.

I would love to hear back.

I dont know about patterns but as for looks a few suggestions.

Brains coming out of it's head
blood around the mouth
gray or green skin
maybe a missing limb or broken bones

Right and wrong are just words, it's what you do

Zombie dolls are easy! First, get your favorite doll pattern. Cut out the pieces. Applique bits of guts or brains colored fabric to the wrong side of the doll pieces so the right side of the guts fabric is against the wrong side of the skin fabric. Then, from the right side of the 'skin' make cuts so the guts show through a bit. You can do gashes, scrapes, and anything else you can think of. It works best if your applique is the same size roughly as the cut will be so you don't make pockets on accident!

Clothes can be any doll clothes that look ratty and torn. You can tear them up, run them through seriously watered down acrylic paint to make them look mud or blood stained, and the like. Literally grind the clothes between two rocks to get them that worn out zombie look. You can also use blood red acrylic paint to add blood drips later. Dimensional fabric paint is even better if you've got it on hand for your blood drips!
