Evil Mad Scientist Lenore has posted a project to zombify a freebie plushie pony from Wells Fargo. Watch Mollie the pretty pony be transformed into MAULIE, the evil zombie pony who eats children that don’t eat their vegetables (okay, I made that last bit up).

When I was at the Steampunk Convention last November, I was amazed at how many people had bought toys at Toys R Us just to cannibalize them for an LED circuit ’cause they didn’t know how to build one. It really couldn’t be easier. No need to zombify perfectly good toys before their time. For Mollie, it was time.
