Having studied art since i was 8 and having gone to art school, I've learned how to avoid dremel and hot glue accidents. 

For eye protection, I've gone through a bunch of different options over the years, and this goes for not just building but gaming as well: I started with ordinary sun glasses and that didn't work; then i tried all sorts of different shop goggles and they were quite safe but always left marks in my face and made me sweat. also they fogged up.  I tried shooting glasses too but the lens distortion gave me a headache.

Finally I said F-this and got a pair of ESS turbofan goggles recommended to me by some folks on an airsoft forum:


They are over $150 but they are literally shrapnel-proof.  The fan keeps them from fogging.  Sweat does build up where the foam gasket touches your face but you'll never sweat under the goggles.  I've used mine in the shop and in nerf combat and I have to say they are excellent.  Also the sleeve that you see on the strap can be stretched over the lenses as a dust cover so you can keep them from getting scratched when you're not using them.  It also doubles as a lens cloth.


When i run the world, normal zombies will be called zombies but small ones will be zomb's.  They will all come from Zambia and when they ambush you, it will also have a name: its called getting "zamboozled."

I use a $13 face shield from Home Depot and it works extremely well

There are a lot of reviews talking about how cheaply made it is, but I've had no problems with it so far. Plus, it's only $13!

One time we had an over excited zombie charge a guy and tripped when he got close. The zombie's hand hit the human in the eye on the way down, later we found out it was an innocent person who wasn't playing...
