It is my thought that even though the two effects are the 'same', using them both in the same routine would not be as strong.
The Zombie is a beautiful metal sphere that defies the laws of gravity. A ball and magician waltz together in a very poetic display of magic.
The Thing, there is something invisible that is captured and floats around, there is something yet nothing... just what is it? That is the magic of The Thing.
Envisioning the two together in my own imagination... both are beautiful pieces of magic by themselves but bringing the two together seems to decrease the enjoyment of the each effect. Instead of magic, it becomes a puzzle.
You may have a routine thought out already which may be able to bring them together and my thoughts and imagination are completely different than yours; so only you can say for sure if they would work together.
On the border of our minds lies a place where dreams and reality are one, a world of magic...
