Excessive force? by grimdarkkommissar Excessive force? by grimdarkkommissar
my Ciaphas Cain warhammer 40k costume.

hat and tunic were made to specification by a friend, i drew plans, we found a pattern to work from and he made it, i then added accessories such as buttons, epaulettes and chains.

i also painstakingly crafted the Plasma pistol you see, the glow is produced by EL wire.

when dealing with heresy there is no such thing as "excessive force"

Although the plasma pistol is a good choice, I think you should have made a laz pistol for this costume. It is his favored weapons after all.

i was going for the propaganda poster version of ciaphas, not the actual character.
so more hero and less opportunistic bastard.

sure, i'd check out bolter.blog.com for an old tutorial i wrote on how to make a bolt pistol, and from there just use similar tchniques but change the shapes you use.
its all about takin time to think of objects as a collection of smaller pieces that you assemble, like legos. take your time and be creative.
you can use anything from wood to plastic or even resin to make things.

i made my original from foam board and eva foam... but didn't have chance to put any lights in it.. i think i have a general idea on what to do.. i was considering buying a battery powered nerf gun... because people try to attack me at conventions and if i hit them with my axe .. they might not get back up :D
