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
I made this kit for the Zombies Are Love Swap and I've been working on a second one for myself since
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!
Along with it are some spare
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
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

Yet another close up
Okay this is the last one, it just looks too cool not to post it
Here's the sign
Study it carefully
There might be a test on it later
Well that's the whole thing. Pretty nice, huh
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!
