  1. Jefferson Goss

    I love the submission from Danellis Sandoval. It is a great concept that would give plenty of personal space and defense from the creepy zombies wanting to eat you. The platform gives you an advantage of speed and the weapon would make it feel really fun, as if swinging around a lasso or deadly yoyo

  2. Jose Vargas

    I vote for Abigail Vargas, this person really stays focused on how all the pieces of the weapon could stay in place. She says on her submission that the handle from the wooden cabinets can keep the leg used for the weapon in place, and the rest of the submissions don’t explain how their shards of glass stick onto their weapon.

  3. Moriah

    I vote for Bethany Bell! I can tell that she put a lot of thought as well as time and effort into her drawing and weapon design!

  4. Beverly

    I vote for Bethany Bell.

  5. Drew Marbut

    I loved Bethany Bells! It was so awesome! I know that I would for sure survive the apocalypse with her guide! Love it!

  6. Isaac Bell

    “The Slaying Sceptre of (un)death” is amazing!!! Its design is realistic, extremely creative and deadly. When and not if the zombies come, I will be the first to grab a Slaying Sceptre of (un)death and a filing cabinet shield to defend humanity. I vote for Bethany Bell!

    I like “Stab n Slice”. It looks easy to put together and has the length to keep the zombies back. The other ones with chair and platform would make it awkward to move while fighting the creatures.

  9. Lynn Friedman

    I vote for Rebecca Chu! Impressive design concept!

  10. Vance Stephens

    I like Bethany Bell’s. I feel like the design is most practical. The use of a filing cabinet door as a shield is very nice. And the coat rack gives plenty of reach. Also the name is very funny.

  11. Manny

    My vote goes to Rebecca Chu. I really like the concept it’s very thoughtful and way she explained the technique and use of strong weapon is excellent.

  12. Sandra Gonzalez

    I’m voting for Rebecca Chu because the weapon is portable, and because of the materials used looks light weight but effective for ending wondering zombies. I also like the size and flexibility, it can be extended between small spaces, or used on stairs and in any weather. Also very important, replacement parts would be easy to find and replace.

  13. Johanna Prieto

    I vote for Rebecca Chu, graphically is the most understandable and most self explanatory, from beginning to end. using simple tools that most people will have in offices. Clearly the faster way to deal with zombies. really great concept, graphics and process.

  14. Nilda Chu

    I feel the stab n’ slice would be the most effective because it is portable, it can be used on any terrain, it can be used on stairs or on the run. Whenever the zombies trap you you’ll be able to get replacement parts.

  15. Alessandra Eplin

    Bethany Bell’s “Slaying Septre of (un)death” is my absolute favorite! It has a very intelligent design and I would buy that one in a heartbeat! Real weapon designers should really up their game with this out here.

  16. Colette Cantrell

    I vote for Bethany Bell!

  17. LaVerne Kemmer

    I vote for Bethany Bell.

  18. Kim Shields

  22. Cindy

  23. Mica

    I vote for Bethany Bell!
    The Slaying Sceptre of unDeath could be fabricated quickly and would be a formidable weapon against the onslaught of zombie hordes.

  24. Erin Kraft

    I vote for Bethany Bell! “The Slaying Sculpture of undeath” is both creative and original!

  25. Sean Brannon

    Bethany Bell’s Scepter sounds pretty rad! She has my vote!
