I found all the buttons/switches at an electronic store for cheap and made the rolling counter out of insulation foam and a number sticker set from the dollar store which was all stuck on a painted/carved piece of insulation foam. I'm glad it looks elaborate though!
Thank you! I work pretty hard on my stuff, I'm hoping to finish my mom's Heavy cosplay this summer but the minigun is proving really REALLY hard to build.
Ooooh wow; your mum is actually cosplaying Heavy alongside with you!?! That sounds just brilliant! And yes the Minigun will be a tough affair, maybe work out something with polystyrene, plumbing pipes and a large cylindric plastic can for the bullet holder like on Sasha.
But I'm sure you will be able to do it fine, you are so good at crafting costumes and props! I would really like to see the photos of the outcome of the conference!
Yeah I was thinking of plumbing for a lot of the parts, it's the bullet drum that's got me a bit stumped, trying to find something that's close...bah, I'm sure I'll figure something out. Yeah! My mom and I are going as heavy and medic this summer, she seems really excited, she loved all the Meet The Team videos I showed her and Heavy was her favourite.
Thanks for the vote of confidence! I hope to get lots of good pictures of us
