My wife only asked for one thing for her birthday this year. She wanted to do a Post-Apocalypse/Zombie Slaying family photo shoot! To that end, I created armor for all of us.

(all photos by Bakan Photography: http://www.bakanphotography.com/)

There's a bunch of pieces here, so rather than going through one-by-one, here's a list of the materials used to make the costumes:

- Hubcaps
- Railroad crossing sign
- Soda tabs
- Strips of stainless steel
- Various bits of sports equipment
- Jump rings
- Aluminum from duct parts

And here are some pics of our adventures!

What a great idea.  I have a zombie addiction as well.  I love that your little girl has a bear on her armor.

This is EPIC! I laughed out loud so many times while scrolling through! I think my favourite piece of armour is the helmet with a furnace-grate visor Cheesy
