Zombie Baby


This is my first Vitual Zombie Walk so please forgive me if I screw something up.

For as long as I can remember I have always been facinated with Zombies.  The 1st Zombie movie I remember watching was the original "Night of the Living Dead."  I was hooked at that point.  Over the years I was always amazed at the technology advances in the motion picture industry that have given us the zombies of today. If I had to choose a favorite zombie movie I would have to say the re-make of "Dawn of the Dead."  I thought the changes they made in the new film were very smart choices.  I absolutely love "The Walking Dead" series and look forward to every Sunday evening. 

Halloween is my favorite holiday.  We are usually the only house that decorates.  We like to make most of our decorations...you can see some of them HERE

So now on to my Zombie Baby. She was brought to "life" because me and my family will be walking in the Phoenix Zombie Walk 2012, plus I found these great little brains at the Dollar Store that I knew right away would be the perfect size for a baby brain. 

Here I give you the stages of transformation:


After paint and enamel accents in her eyes.


Here I have opened her head up and inserted the brain.




I used my glue gun to ensure the brain wouldn't move and then applied the "blood."


I love this one where you can see the blood has run into her eye.



And here she is...Zombie Baby!!!


The transformation:
  • I spray painted her head and hands with gray spray paint
  • After some drying time I applied white and black craft paint with just a simple sponge
  • I then painted her lips and fingernails with black craft paint
  • I also applied Enamel Accents to her eyes
  • I then began opening up her head
  • stuffed the brain inside along with some bubble wrap so that it would keep its shape
  • hot glued the brain to the inside of the head
  • touched up paint and then applied the "blood"
I am so happy you have come this far and taken this journey with me.  I hope you enjoyed my Zombie Baby and please continue on with the Zombie Walk.

  2. This is gory and cute at the same time. Being able to see the brain through the cracks in her skull is a nice touch. Fantastic!
