In this instructable I will teach you how to be a headcrab zombie from the game "half life 2"

Step 1: Things Required

Picture of Things Required

There's some stuff needed to be a headcrab zombie, the things required are:
a headcrab hat (or any headcrab that can fit on your head)
a blood-stained white long sleve shirt
a blood-stained pair of blue jeans

you can get fake blood at any halloween store or you can make it yourself (there are instructables on how to make fake blood).

Step 2: Blood Staining

To blood stain the clothes first pour some blood in a cup. Then for the heavily stained places pour some blood in your hands and rub the blood onto the spot where you want it. Then for not-so heavily stained places just dip your fingers in the cup and splash it on the clothes.

Step 3: Walk Like a Headcrab Zombie

Assassin437 (author)bounty10122012-09-20

actually no their not Play HL2 Ep 2 on the end........... Aperture Science Boat

THey happen in the same uneverse but are completly different (I finally got to rent them both IN 1 WEEKEND!!! ^_^

yea, GLaDOS talks about black mesa a bit too, I think the Aperture science place and Black Mesa are rivals.

santy22 (author)bounty10122009-12-08

rumor says portal 2 will connect with the HL universe.

Duct Tape Dude (author)santy222010-06-09

I just heard a rumor that Portal 2 was just a prank to make people forget about Episode 3 for a while and Ep. 3 will be announced at E3 instead of Portal 2 (Here's hoping thats not true)

No both of them will be coming out, there's an article about portal 2 in game informer

nfk11 (author)snipeyouout2011-07-20

yeah.i had the game but i got rid of it.

FrozenStar (author)bounty10122010-01-23

this may be reviving an old topic but...

If you have played through the whole half life 2 series so far (hl2, hl2 episode 1, hl2 episode 2) you will learn part way through episode two that black mesa and aperture science are rivals (i dont want to spoil anything so i wont say any more)

bounty1012 (author)FrozenStar2010-01-23

Well then, I guess I was right xD

The carbine is mentioned in the portal. somewhere

You mean the combine right?

if you listen to it backwards, you can hear "oh god please help me!" and stuff like that. Not only is it creepy, but it's sad. :,(

bounty1012 (author)2009-10-13

we need more Half-Life instructables.

Yeah!!! Like a HEV Suit...or simply a papercraft Black Mesa Logo!!!

Dont forget a badass combine suit!

fragmaster4 (author)2009-11-13

It is missing one VITAL thing.... The stomach on the zombies is cut open. Look around on Instructables and try to find a way to make it look like your shest is cut open =P

I just figured out a cheap way to do this!!! First cut your shirt from about the collar to about 3" above waist sewing-thing in an oval-ish design. then use a t-shirt making method to make an organ and bone design on a black shirt and speckle with blood (don't go overborad on the blood) It kiinda looks like the maw. Also, your hands look WEAK!!! so mabye you should oragami claws on a skintone-ish peice of paper (print out the skin-tone design on both sides, if possible)

FrozenStar (author)2010-01-23

Gotta love setting them on fire :)

btw you should make some gloves with elongated fingers.

santy22 (author)2009-10-16

Step 6: Talk about your icing.

Duct Tape Dude (author)santy222009-11-30

If you slow it down or play it in reverse...sumthin like that they say somthing that sounds like HELP ME MY EYES BLEED!!!!!! (thats what it sounds like to me...mabye not you)

fragmaster4 (author)2009-11-13

Sounds like the zombie is saying AHHHHHHH!!! MY HOUSE IS GOOOOOOONE xD
