Perhaps it comes from a disease, perhaps a curse.  Maybe its origins are technological, supernatural, or even extraterrestrial. However it might occur, we all know:

the zombie apocalypse is coming!

...what form will it take when it comes? Allow me to share a few conjectures...

US Size E hook
Worsted weight yarn: Lion Brand Cotton-Ease
polyester fiberfill
polymer clay
plastic safety eyes
glass pellets
plastic canvas
paint stirrers
fabric paint markers, red and black

Note: I'm still in the process of formatting the actual crochet patterns. More specific directions are yet to come...

Step 1: The Hospital: Patient Zero

9 out of 10 zombie scholars agree: the hospital is the most likely spot for an outbreak to start. By the time that you notice that the patients are looking a little *too* unhealthy, it's all over.

Use fabric markers to emphasize sunken eyes and gore. Try going over the red marker with a darker marker in order to simulate old blood.

Use polymer clay for elements that are tricky to get in sufficient detail with yarn. Remember to add holes to stitch the polymer clay pieces into place, since I find that simply gluing clay pieces into place provides a relatively weak bond.
This is just way too cool.
His is adorable, and so funny! Well done and voted for ya!
