Zombie Video: How to Make a Gory Prosthesis (Part III)

This video was shot and edited by Norma Vasquez. It's the third of three we've posted on consecutive Tuesdays. Check out the first part in our series and the second part.

In our final installment of our series on zombie makeup, we're going to help you learn how to create prostheses to make your characterization dead-on (groan).

The second annual Zombie Walk Downtown is approaching and we want to help you look your best as you get out on the street and represent the undead.

The October 27 walk benefits the Houston Children's Charity, the Houston Humane Society and Dove Key Ranch Wildlife Rehab.

To participate, you'll be asked for a $15 donation, and since you might as well do it in style, here's some makeup help from artist Rick Bongiovanni, who's a master at this stuff.

And now, for the video:
