For this Halloween I wanted to have a bunch of life-size zombies.  On the docket are working 10 – 6 foot tall zombies to place in our yard display.  I used the zombietronix biped calculator to get the right proportions. Since the pumpkin watchers from last year turned out to be a bit wobbly, I opted for 1 inch PVC pipe for more strength as opposed to 1/2 inch or 3/4 inch.  A heat gun was used to bend the PVC to the desired angle for the arms, hips, shoulders, and spine.  More pictures to come as things progress.  I had Kelly and Evan pose for one of the shots to give the scale of the zombies.  So far 5 of the PVC bodies have been cut and assembled posed with the heat gun.
