How To: Turn a Cute & Innocent Teddy Bear into a Man-Eating Grizzly Zombie for Halloween

Turn a Cute & Innocent Teddy Bear into a Man-Eating Grizzly Zombie for Halloween

Humans aren't the only ones who get to take part in the festivities on Halloween. We give our pumpkins human faces and dress up our pets, so why not include toys and stuffed animals in the fun?

Lucy of the surprise-aholic is dressing up as a zombie child this year, so she decided to make a teddy bear to match her costume. Meet the Terror Teddy.

She used scrap plastic and a disposable knife for the rib cage, fake nails for the teeth, a twisted plastic bag for the entrails, and red paint for the blood. The process mostly consists of cutting holes, removing stuffing and replacing the poor little bear's innards.

It's a violent little project that looks like a lot of fun, and you can get really creative and customize it however you want.

Thanks for sharing my zombie teddy tutorial! I will hopefully have some full costume photos after Halloween, but I did get a short video of me with the teddy in my arms from this weekend:

Happy Halloween!!

Looks awesome, and pretty convincing job with the fake blood! We'd love to see your photos after the big night :)
