I would love to see a shot of it on your wall, and maybe an action shot too Grin

I love it Grin  I got together all the kit to make one once, but never got around to it.  I'll have to rebuy the supplies and turn my house into a chapel as well.

14  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Emergency Zombie Defense Station on: October 18, 2007 10:48:18 AM
Behold the ultimate in home safety kits to defend against the legions of the undead!  I call it the Emergency Zombie Defense Station.  Think of it like one of those fire alarm kits with an axe and an extinguisher or an emergency eye wash station Cheesy

I made this kit for the Zombies Are Love Swap and I've been working on a second one for myself since Grin  After all Halloween is just around the corner and who knows when one might need a boomstick in a hurry?

I was initially inspired after seeing this Zombie survival kit on the internet, but I had some ideas on how to take it to another level.  I really liked the transparent riot shields used in 28 Days Later and I figured, "Why not make the case multi-functional at the same time?"  So when the plexi-glass cover is removed it becomes the perfect protection against zombie related carnage and splatter.  Inside the case is arguable the best tool to have during a Zombie attack.  None other than the trusty shotgun! Wink  Along with it are some spare bullets shells and a machete for when you're all out of ammo.  I also have a bit of a thing for those easy to understand safety signs with the little diagrams of stickpeople on them.  So I created a sign to be posted next to the station for quick, last minute instructions.

Marvel at it's awesome-ness Grin


Here's another angle to show it off further


The riot shield on it's own


Ready for action!


The station once the cover is removed


This is where I start to think I'm a photographer

A better view of the machete


Yet another close up


Okay this is the last one, it just looks too cool not to post it Wink


Here's the sign


Study it carefully


There might be a test on it later


Well that's the whole thing.  Pretty nice, huh Wink

I bought the shotgun at a dollar store after visiting every single one in town I decided the best toy shotgun I saw was at the first store I went to.  Go figure.  It has been spray painted to make it look less like a toy and a little more like the real deal.  I also found the machete there too.  It's actually a cheapo "butcher" knife and I got it for a dollar.  I would not recommend trying to cut anything with it, it's duller than a butter knife.  The shotgun shells are real spent shells that I got from the local gun range.  I folded them back together to make them look new again.  I stenciled and spray painted the riot shield and build the handle out of dowel and PVC pipe and the strap out of velcro.  To make the sign I had to fiddle with photoshop for a few hours and then I got it printed and laminated at Staples.

Remember only you can stop the Zombie outbreak!

Oh my god, I just popped over to the front page to check my messages and I did a double take when I saw that.  That is so cool!  I love that sketch from Sesame Street, one of the classics and most well known.  Great shot of him next to the rotary phone too Cheesy

Very well done, my hat is off to you Grin

I just got my very first swap package today!  So exciting Cheesy

Called2otherskys put together a fantastic package!



First off you can see awesome Zombie green t-shirt of a hand painted brain with a bite taken out of it.  I just love this shirt and it will be worn with extreme pride.



The next goody is the adorable crocheted Zombie doll.  It is super cool and now sits next to my computer in the mortar of my mortar and pestle.  In it's arms it's hugging a little hand stitched brain.  I love its muppet like hair and its button eyes.  Just awesome! Grin



In addition to this great stuff I also received 2 little brain magnets and a Shaun of the Dead key ring with the motto "Aim for the head" written on it.  I really like it. Cheesy



Plus, PLUS, I also got a Pez dispenser shaped like a silly looking skellington.  Woo Pez!

I'm so happy by this whole experience.  This was an awesome start to my swapping adventures.  I really love seeing what everyone else made too.  This has been the best Zombie craft tribute ever! Wink

Oh and of course a photo of me...

Oh that is so cool.  I've always wanted to make a hollowed out book, I was even pondering the idea a few days ago.  I don't know what I'd store in it, but it would be awesome.

That's fantastic.  You're a natural at it.  I would have thought you sold them professionally or something if you hadn't said it was your first.
