Dead Ringers – Custom Zombie Sculpture!
Dead Ringers is a joint effort, brought to you by myself and my friend Phil Hynes. When Phil approached me to ask if I would be interested in working with him to create a line of custom zombie sculptures, made in the likeness of friends & loved ones, my head exploded.
After piecing together the shattered remnants of my craniofacial structures, and scooping what was left of my brain back into my makeshift skull-bucket, I told him that I was very excited about the prospect. After seeing the quality of the work he turned out on the first few samples for the line, I ran around the room squealing like a little girl… then I piddled in the corner.
Suffice to say, Phil makes incredible miniature sculptures. Incredibly true-to-life, incredibly detailed, and incredibly grisly and horrifying! Looking at my tiny zombified clone I am filled with a mixture of glee and foreboding: is this what I’ll look like if I don’t end up on the winning side of the zombie apocalypse?
Dead Ringers are unique, one-of-a-kind sculptures created by Phil to look like you, or one of your friends, family members, or enemies. Send in a few pictures when you place your order, tell us what kind of damage your zombie has suffered (lost eye? torn throat? severed arm? exposed ribcage? …we leave it to your discretion), and we create a custom sculpture for you. The figures are sculpted by Phil, and painted by myself, then sent to your door to infect you and everyone you love!
Each Dead Ringer comes with a custom Death Certificate and Toe Tag, and they come in two varieties: “Shamblers” are free-standing, full-length, cartoon-proportioned zombies, sculpted from rotting head to bloody toe. “Groaners” are miniature zombie busts, consisting of a head-and-shoulders sculpt of your post-mortem portrait.
“Zombie Busts are for anyone who ever wondered what they’d look like shambling across the set of a George Romero Film. Speaking as someone with a life long love of zombie movies, seeing myself as a member of the shambling hordes sent shivers down my spine.
The quality of the sculpting and the detailed paint job gives the busts a realism that is lacking in other mediums. This craftsmanship has already set fire to the imaginations of the friends and family I’ve shown it to.
In addition to this, these busts make great conversation pieces for those with quirky senses of humor and a love of the horror genre. I know that I’ll be treasuring my zombie bust, and proudly displaying it for years to come.”
- James Seckler, unfortunate victim of attempted zombie makeout
Shamblers stand approximately 5.5″ tall, Groaners stand approximately 3.5″ tall. They’re not worried, though… they can still reach your juicy Achilles’ tendon.
And if 5.5″ of Shambler is just not quite enough for you, we would like to introduce you to the Deluxe Shambler. Standing at a proud (and horrifying) 8″ tall, this zombie sculpture is the answer to your burning need for a super-sized, full-length zombie sculpture. And the best part? You can see all the various ways putrescence has mangled your body (or that of a vile enemy) in even gorier detail than before. No ragged bite mark or dangling optic nerve goes un-sculpted on these statues.
Sometimes, bigger IS better.
