I purchased a few baby sized blucky skeletons from Oriental Trading ($2.59/each! Cheap!). But as everyone knows, bluckys are far from anatomically correct so my first step in corpsifying baby blucky is to do some cosmetic surgery first.

 Here's blucky straight from the bag. A horrible site indeed...

 Using an Xacto knife, I carve away some of the lower chest and pelvic bulge...

 Next, I gouge out the eyes and do some rib cage cutting to create space between the ribs and add a few floating ribs at the bottom. I also removed a ring of plastic from under the chin so the head isn't constantly looking skyward...

 bluckys side by side...

 And the last part of the surgery is to split the forearm and leg bones...

 Baby Blucky is now ready to corpsify with cotton and latex!

I used the same method as I did in my zombie hand how-to page... 

 

I started with Baby Blucky's head. I coated the face with latex and applied cotton and then more latex over the cotton, pulling and stretching it into place. 

 I continued corpsing the entire body...

Once dried, I fired up my airbrush and laid in Opaque black shadows...

Then I began airbrushing with translucent light brown. I laid it heavier in some areas than others which added depth to the rotted flesh...

I found this infant sized toe pincher coffen a few years ago and now have something to use it for!

I hot glued his arms to cross his chest, lined the coffin with an old robe of mine and.... 

Baby Blucky is finished and tucked into bed!
