Contest time! Threadless has reprinted the In Case of Zombies t-shirt… for a second time! To celebrate, we’re giving away one of these awesome shirts to a lucky reader.

To enter, leave a comment and tell us what’s your zompocalypse plan? Will you head for an island or join the ranks of the undead?

Zombie Escape Plan journal We want to encourage some creativity so one killer entry will win a Zombie Escape Plan journal to chronicle their ideas. Thanks to zombie lover and Etsy seller ChristineRenee for donating this awesome handmade journal! Be sure to check out her store for more zombie goodies. Sorry guys, but this contest sponsor flaked on us so no journals. But never fear, we’re sending out surprise packs for Kevin & Rick that will be way cooler.

The shirt says ‘Zombies have difficultly moving quickly’, but this contest is a little more speedy. It runs from June 1 – 10, 2008 so you have 10 days to calculate a plan and share it with your fellow survivors. Good luck boils and ghouls!

We Have Our Winners!

  • Julie won the grand prize of an In Case of Zombies shirt from Threadless
  • Kevin & Rick each won a Zombie Escape Plan journal for their creative entries. We couldn’t decide between the two so we called it a tie.

Thanks to everyone for entering!

Boring Fine Print: One entry per person (IPs are logged, no cheating!). US residents only. T-shirt winner will be chosen at random. Journal winner will be selected on creativity and effort. Threadless doesn’t restock sizes so if they run out of the one(s) you want… we’ll figure out a good alternative. Be sure to use a valid e-mail address so we can contact you if you win. Your privacy is important and no one but 365Halloween.com will have access to your e-mail address.

    Weapons:

    Well first of all, a shotgun is in store, but it should be used as a last resort (as loud sound will just draw attention to yourself). The preferred tool of choice would probably be along the lines of a sharpened heavy duty spade shovel, or any sharpened blade capable of either destroying or removing the brain quickly.

    Supplies:
    Hunting gear, camping gear. Rock climbimg gear is also a definite must.

    Escape route:
    Get out of cities, go where there is not a ton of people (more to become zombies). You must be alert and flee at the first sign of zombies. Motorcycle is probably the best bet, but an off road vehicle would do just fine. Sentimentalism is not a good value at this time. The key is getting out of the city.

    Gas will be limited and in very very short supply and high demand so get to the nearest heavily forested area. If possible get as far north as possible, deep Canada or alaska is preferred (zombie will freeze… but be warned, they will defrost as well). High altitude will work to your advantage as well as there is more likely to have freezing temperatures).

    Stay in the trees as long as possible, and only go down to hunt when the coast is clear.

    Stay away from water, as zombies will not drown, which makes water a definite death trap.

    Dogs are key, as they will likely be able to tell if a zombie is coming near.

    Keep your head on a swivel, and try to not be noticed.

    Take your cue from Sam Raimi.

    How to survive? Roll up your sleeves and strap on a chainsaw (or two chainsaws, or a shotgun/chainsaw combo). Zombies are soft and especially susceptible to this method.

    Chainsaw samurai should have nothing to fear from zombie hoard. As a bonus, the odds of being mistaken for a zombie are small. Next best thing – molotov cocktails, because nothing is more efficient than firebombing.

    Armed with chainsaw and bevy of molotov cocktails, I could very easily torch any number of zombies as I made a run for the downtown. Sequestering myself in a high-rise I could very comfortably survive while continuing to pick off zombies. Amen.

    Grab all the protective gear I can find around the house. Strap on my hunting knife, and throw a box of tools in the truck, along with a couple jugs of water.
    I live in san diego, so I’d drive to the coast and hole up in the life guard station at Mission Beach or La Jolla shores. I’ve got (a) food and some supplies, (b) access to fresh water, (c) a lookout tower, and (d) the ocean, where no zombie can chase me…….

    In the immortal words of people trying to escape zombies everywhere “We’re going to the mall.” I hate malls myself, but with zombies running rampant and eating the unprepared masses all of the annoying people that normally hang out in the mall will become target practice. Of course, the mall would have to be in a red state so I could be assured of a sporting goods store that carried firearms.

    Of course if it turns out that the zombies loathe the smell of patchouli as much as I do, then the malls in the Portland area will do just fine.

    I would also need a compatriot along that understood firearms and their use. I myself am a Social Justice educator and thus not well versed in firearms. I am more likely to lead workshops on how to be more tolerant of the zombies, and talk about “Live Person Privilege.” I wonder if Chuck Norris would be available? Or perhaps Dick Cheney. On the second thought if those are my choices I may just go join the zombies.

    First thing, get the “Everything you need for the Zombie Infection!!!” list by Caleb Clayton on amazon.com. Then I and my family would head over to the Costco here in Oregon and take it over. With enough food, shelter and such we should be okay at least long enough to think about what to do next. Because we sure as hell can’t stay were we are in a little house with 7 people 4 dogs and 2 cats.

    The important question, of course, is whether the zombies are the quick, super-human-strength zombies or the slow-witted, “WANT BRAINS!” type.
    With the fast zombies, demise is nearly inevitable except for those who join small, secluded compounds of zombie experts. I am, however, fairly sure that I could survive a slow zombie attack pretty easily. They seem to be unaware of how to operate even the simplest of machinery, like doorknobs. So all I’d have to do is lock my front door and take advantage of my “in case of zombies” food supply. Eventually the zombies would starve to death (or undeath,) and I could come out of my home unscathed. It’s as simple as that!

    I think I’d feel most comfortable constantly re-deading the undead and teaching others how to. So first I’d head over to my local pawn shop or sporting goods store and load up on swords, bats, guns, armor of some sort and some power bars. I might go with a Casey Jones from TMNT look with some sort of improvised weapons holder and minimal body armor. Who’s with me!?

    Remember: Aim for the Head.

    Plan? Just observe the chaos until the last human becomes a zombie. They will win you know!

    My apt. is on the second floor with a central hallway outside. Step one: demolish the stairs. That should keep zombies out of my house. Step 2; drive to the publix/target big block that is 2 blocks from my apt; load up. If survivors are collecting and barricading inside, help out, establish communications, and if possible get back to my place with supplies. The problem isn’t going to be the zombies as much as the resulting breakdown of society, unless you are in a densely populated area.

    I’d find and reinforce a zombie killing super-mobile, with no concern whatsoever to fuel efficiency, load it up with weapons and explosives, and lay waste to everything that moves. Eventually, I’d probably blow myself to bits to avoid being overcome by the ever-growing army of undead, but would feel good about it.

    I would pretend to be a zombie. Once I have earned their trust I would climb the zombie ranks. It’s not well know that they have ranks but because I’m so BA I know this! I would learn their inner workings and once I am close to the top I would take out the leader thus becoming the leader myself. They would never dream of attacking me because they will have witnessed my wrath. I would then command the zombies to do my bidding.

    I would not be prepared, so I would inevitably join the ranks of zombiehood eventually. But before that, I’d kick some zombie toosh! I would visit a local sporting goods store and fill my shopping list (bow,arrows,light axe,shotgun,etc…). Armed with these items and my copy of The Zombie Survival Guide, I would hold out in my office complex building, top floor, of course, after destroying the stairs (I’d have lots of rope in order to get back down). Anyway, after my supplies ran out, and assuming they were still after me, I’d be bitten or eaten entirely. The end.

    It’s all about holing up and laying low. My plan is to seal up the house like Ben in Night Of The Living Dead and wait it out. After putting a big ‘ALIVE INSIDE’ sign on the roof, I’ll stay safe and secure in my house with a small arsenal of anti-zombie firearms.

    There is an army supply store down the street from my house and I know where all the most useful supplies are located. Depending on how many people had the same idea I would either stay there or just load up on weapons and food and try to hole up with a neighbor. Some of the expensive houses on the hill are like fortresses and the army store has every window and door barred.

    Right from the beginning I would kill as many zombies as I can! How come nobody does that in the movies? Instead of letting their numbers increase I would kill them off right away and end the zompocalypse before it really starts.
