Buster Gravesley is my 2010 entry in the Hauntforum $20 Prop Challenge. Buster is a Zombie/Coffin Groundbreaker standing approximately 4 feet tall and mounted on a plywood base that can be angled in different directions when displayed.
This prop was made from numerous recycled materials including; newspaper, cardboard, plastic bags, aluminum cans and plastic milk jugs. The project was started March 4th, 2010 and completed on April 2nd, 2010. The total cost for this prop was $19.03.
Project tutorial and more photos can be found here.
Update: A few more “tidbits” of information regarding the construction of “Buster” have been posted over at ScottyArt, some more information on the coffin, bones and the first attempt at the eyeball.
