Tarzan, the Feral Zombie

Fresh off my North American Road Trip, I wanted to pay homage to my feral days by making a Tarzan-esque corpse. As with Nasir, this one also had to be locked into position, but this position would be far less natural and more difficult to lock into place.

I got him into his apish stance with rope rigging and modeling clay. I also heated up and rounded his knuckles to get Tarzan’s signature fists. This was the first corpse I added hair to (also cannibalized from a spare wig). I cut up a piece of fabric and folded an authentic loincloth for him.

The one spot where I screwed up was with paint. I wanted to lightly dust him with a little bit of color – some brown and green – to make it clear he was meant to come from somewhere out in nature. Unfortunately, even the little bit of paint I spritzed on him was enough to nearly wash out all of the normal corpse coloring and render him matte.
