Making these portal shooters was so much fun, and reminded me of my University days working on the formula Car since they are made the exact same way! fiberglass shells has kept these shooters sturdy. Now I just need to find some time to re-do the electronics and make the claws stronger by using 3d printing.
Yup, you read that correctly. I tried to Cosplay as an elevator. Complete with working plexiglass doors as a face cover. the push buttons function correctly, and the elevator dongs when the doors open.
With some copper pipe handiwork, and some really awesome leather-work on custom made goggles, this was a clean and fancy cosplay. I had to wear some eye liner to really make this cosplay work!
This was a fun Cosplay. being already covered in fur (mostly), it felt very natural.
I’m really sad I lost that green bag. I had it imported with the mask directly from Lithuania.
What can I say, I had a few gadgets lying around … Complete with personal body heat sink (functionally kept me very cool, a little too cool). Rear view mirror, Ceylon glasses (yes from Battlestar Galactica) I used a 555 timer chip to make the lights scan back and forth. All this connected to some lead acid batteries.
the claws were hand fashioned with a grinder from heat treated, oil quenched sheet steel. I had to use many grinding wheels to get these cut. Attached to gloves with reinforced steel plates. Oh, and yes, that’s a pumpkin launcher.
