What would you wear during the zombie apocalypse?

theliothelio Posts: 5,374Registered Users
The thread about boots and the walking dead got me thinking (and I have an obsession about zombies), what would be the best outfit for the apocalyse?

I'm thinking some really good combat boots. Cargo pants with lots of pockets so i can stash stuff. A leather jacket could provide good arm protection and when its gets a little chilling i will be warm. And I'm thinking of shaving my head. I wont have time to deep condition.

Would this be considered a spinoff thread? :scratch:

    Actually, the Hunger Games replica jacket I bought for Halloween would work well unless it was wintry. It's a two layered jacket, and the removable outer layer is good for rainy weather. Both layers have deep hoods (can handle my large head and big hair) that pull-tie shut.

    I have military pants and would wear those. I'm used to moving around in them and they have pockets.

    These trail boots are on my list to buy.

    The boots I bought for my costume are fine, but I want the above for real trail stuff.

    Backpack, utility belt, water purification tablets, containers to hold water on the go. Backpack/trail bag would hold gloves, ear muffs, extra socks (don't want trench foot) Diva cup, sunblock, lip balm. Sleeping bag can go on top of pack.

    You got it all planned out, rcc! i thought I was the only one!

    I have to get a leather jacket and new cargo pants. I want a darker pair, like black or dark blue.

    I got to get familiar with my new neighborhood, got to know where things are. If there is any safe havens. Where my dad use to leave we could walk to where the national guards place (cant think of the name. Just know they had a tank)

    Oh, I'd keep a big rain poncho in my bag, too.

    Stack up on granola bars. avacodo got protein and fat, so i need those too. water purification tablets are a good one too. if nessecary bleach can work as well. I want to learn more about edible plants as well. I know I can eat dandilions.

    must have extra socks, must keep feet dry!

    You would be zombie food before night fall.
  • redcelticcurlsredcelticcurls Posts: 17,502Registered Users
    Haven't you seen Dawn of the Dead? Stay away from the malls, unless you're going with a well armed group to raid for supplies.

    I live near the mall where it was filmed. It houses a zombie museum.

    nu uuuh



    i didn't say I was going by myself.


    but in all zombie reality I live near the ocean so I would live in a boat anyway. I mean zombies can't swim...or can they?

    just me and my zombie baby on the sea

    Nope! a boat wont work. You will run out of supplies eventually, then what?
  • murrrcatmurrrcat Posts: 9,596Registered Users
    I DIDN'T SAY I would stay on a boat permanently. I would go back and get stuff then go back on my boat. duh.


    YOU'RE JUST TRYING TO KILL ME OFF LIKE LORI. GET OVER IT. I WILL GO RICK ALL OVER YOU.

    THIS ISN'T A DEMOCRACY ANYMORE.

    I GET IT. SHHH HAPPENS.

    I would probably be the first to die because, while I am great in a crisis, I don't like to run for hours on end and I would spend too much time looking for migraine meds and we all know zombies like to hang out in pharmacies. So I'm a goner.

    But for the first day or so I would be wearing my favorite jeans, Victoria Secret unders, sports bra, tank top, long sleeve top, leather jacket, heavy socks, Harley boots, gun, knife.

    In my backback would be plastic bags of all sizes from small ziploc to large trash bags (to store food, keep me dry, etc), meds, first aid stuff, water, a towel, candy, cigarettes (oh yes, I would immediately start smoking again), lighters, hair ties, extra socks, unders, tank tops, flip flops, ammo, etc)

    If this was real, I'd totally buy it. It could be good for other disasters.

    See, I'd go with comfort only. I'd immediately run to the woods behind my house --- no, wait --- I don't even have to do that. Wouldn't the barking of my dogs put them off? If so, all I'd need are lots of groceries, and I could finally take my dogs in to the store with me.

    I think I'm covered.

    hmm, well I work across the street from a National Guard unit. so I guess I need two plans. one for work and one for home.

    While my work options brings more guns, slack and a cardigan just doesn't feel right for the occasion

    The dogs turn into zombies as well. Obviously. As do any birds and animals that would eat roadkill.
    The mall was fairly safe until people started doing dumb things, letting people in and out, and letting zombie babies be born and such.

    You can't keep pets in a zombie apocalypse. They get bit, and you have to kill them like in I Am Legend, and It's too damn sad.


    I would BE Alice from Resident Evil because she is so friggin badass.

    In Resident Evil Apocalypse (2)

    And Extinction (3)

    And I would live here

    But I'm only dealing with normal, zombies. Not these super charged zombies that can run and climb and swim. Hello? Who came up with that?

    I've seen so many zombie movies, I tend to get them mixed up.

    Zombie Land is the sorta funny one with Woody Harrelson

    Dawn of The Dead was in the mall

    LAND of the Dead was with the hottie Aussie from the Mentalist where they evolve and learn and stuff. weird.

    Quarantine was the rabies outbreak zombies.

    Resident Evil, my favorite, was the global company test gone wrong.

    There was the Quentin Tarantino one w Rose McGowan, what was that?

    and the one where the kids leave school on vacation and end up in their rich friends panic room? Can't remember that one either.

    Those are weird outfits that look more like titillation than function. I've never seen RE.

    I wouldn't have that much skin out for a zombie apocalypse.

    A zombie full of seething hunger will bite through clothes. And too much clothing gives them a lot to grab onto to catch you. Something to think about.


    You can not fully plan for the zombie apocalypse if you have not paid attention to the real (movie) examples!

    You can't, but I'm not to around looking like some dudes boner fantasy of a zombie killer. Layers will be more bite protective than mesh and fishnet.

    I didn't realize we were in disaster mode planning of a true zombie apocalypse. Carry on.

    Well, the thread title didn't say the zombie fakeopalyse, or the Dress Like a Sexy Zombie Fighter apocalypse. ;)

    It's like those dumb Halloween costumes for women.

    Until the zombies eat the dogs.

    Depends on the type of zombie outbreak we have. Some zombies dont eat animals. totally ignores them. so having a dog as a guard would be a good option. Unless we talking t-virus zombies.
