    Oct 26, 2006, 8:42 AM - Zapper gun...need anything else?? #1

    Hi this is my nintendo zapper blaster.....it still needs work but what do you think about it?? Do you think it needs something more?? Please give me some feedback!!. I thought the lipstick case would add a girly touch
    I know its a bit wonkey...nothing is stuck on yet.

    Thanks

    Glowstick is a nice touch Zoe! What colours you thinking of painting it? Get it stuck together and a bit of car body filler on there and it will look great

    Ah glue sticks...a man's best friend! Although watch out for molten glue dripping on you. It can be painful, especially when both your hands are full and you can't get it off your skin!

    If I may add my personal oppinion as far a s arecommendation, I notice that your going for that barrel with a "gas retrival tube" in my own words, or that "double barrel" look. I would, under the regular barrel with the glowstick, use a tube that has a smaller diameter or just thinnerso that it "flows" with the rest of the zapper. I actualy own one, and I play duck hunt with it all the time. Its a fun gamer, especially since its a double game cartridge also including super mario brothers, the original nintendo game system.

    The lip stick holder works really well (it looks like some sort of gas port, similar to the belt fed machine guns of our time). Overall i think it is going to rock

    how about though adding some greeblies onto the side of the gun to give it a bit of a 3 dimensional look.

    it would be cool if you could build it so that the glowstick was removable. basically pop a glowstick in there before trooping so your gun lights up

    This is my blaster now after some paint...
    I must admit that the lipstick case does look good.....all lipsticks are like this I think...if you take out the lippy, leave the lid, push it out to its fullest extent then pull and it should look like it did on the earlier photos.

    What do you think....yey or ney??

    Ive still got 2 weeks, I might add something else to it....i had to improvise for my gauntlets as well cos I dropped them last time I wore them so they now have a sawn off pencil and a glue lid attatched!! Alot of people can do alot more with thier armour and stuff cos they have the tools, but I never have, I had a hand saw for my armour...thats why they aint the same szie for the chest plates...either that or one boob is bigger than the other

    Glad people like it.

    Nov 7, 2006, 6:20 AM - Zapper blaster and holster #15

    This is my nintendo zapper conversion....updated with holster because when your going out you dont really want to be carrying your little blaster round in your hands...they get in the way and could get bbroken...and as its useually me that breaks them by dropping them...im not gunna take any chances this time!!

    Ive hand made a holster and aged up my utility belt aswell and fixed the holster on my belt. Its just been aged by wiping it over with some black acrylic paint so the synthetic leather coluor shows through aswell.

    Anyway let me know hwat you think!

    WOW

    that looks really really great. It just has that bounty hunter essence to it. You have done a really good job there. The blaster is good but the rig is out of this world.

    Another reason to have your sidearm holstered is to stop the 'adorable' public trying to constantly nick your weapon.

    well done though. cant wait to see it.

    This is the zapper with the rest of my outfit....my gauntlets arent authentic as my wrists are very dainty so without a LOAD of padding they just fall off with the underparts so thats whjy they are just straps. I do love my bucket...its my fave bit...though it is a bit big as im pretty slender and my shoulders aint that broad so it kinda dwarfs the rest of the costume...especially cos its all woman sized....when will people start making lady sized helmets!!

    Im lloking forward to getting all mi clober on this sunday though...I just need to weather my jumpsuit a bit more and its all done (untill I have a spare evening when im sure I will see something I can improve)

    Cheers guys....at least I can tell my mum that....I really annoyed her last year when every spare minute doing this before I went off for my last year at uni....but the starwars fancy dress party went very well so I was happy.

    When I can drive...and have got a car as that is really more important then I can go where I please from a village with no busses!!

    Yep i'll second that. I am really looking forward to this weekend as its the first time my Fett will have been unleased upon the public close up. As i have only ever trooped as a stormtrooper before i am really excited, Fett is so much more intimidating

    It's going to be great when all three of us get the chance to meet up in costume

    Well I have been at uni for the past 3 years so they didnt really have to aorry bout it all then cos I was in Wales, but my boyfriend takes me most places...but thats useually just out for food (his fave past time). There was no point me driving when I was at uni cos there was no need for it I could walk everywhere and work is only at Pensthorpe (waterfowl park) which is just out of fakenham and my parents dont mind dropping me off....I lhave lived in a village all my life so im used to it...i dont get to out much cos all my firends are at uni or have left Norfolk so all I have really is my boyfriend who works alot and doesnt really like going out and me...and I only work 1 day a week at the mo....so I have no money either so its day time tv and films for me.....
