Let's go "corpsing," shall we? You know, corpsing? As in let's create a prop corpse for movie, Halloween or maybe even for nefarious pranking purposes? Usually this is expensive, but Propnomicon shows us how to make one on the cheap.

All one needs is some plastic drop cloth, a $30 plastic skeleton and some basic prop tools and stains. Easy! Typically you'd need cheesecloth or latex or other dead body-like materials, but this low-cost DIY version looks pretty disgusting too!
