SPIRIT GUM!

I am an amateur cosplayer. I pride myself on resourcefulness, and I believe in constructing, painting, creating costumes in the most inexpensive way possible. My favourite friends in the trade are op-shops, hot glue, spirit gum, and Rit Dye. I also love me some good Papier-mâché! I am a member of Mutiny Go! Cosplay www.facebook.com/MutinyGoCospl… a group which proudly hails from Perth, Western Australia, and also cosplay with my sister Veleven as The Wonky Pirates. (You can check us out here: www.facebook.com/TheWonkyPirat… !!)

Thanks for the fave!!

I saw your awesome Strong World Ussop cosplay around a year or so ago floating around the net, and was wondering who the cosplayer was! Now I finally do! XD

Gah! I need help!

You are absolutely amazing at cosplaying and making cheap but great props, right? Well. I'm planning to cosplay as Luffy from the Strong World Movie (the badass suit! :D ) to Q-Con in Belfast in June and I have all of the outfit already, but I haven't the foggiest on how to make the gun. I was actually thinking of making it into some sort of bag so I can carry my stuff around in it, but I have next to zero skills in budgeting and being practical. Any ideas?
I would appreciate any help, even if it's only a little!

Golly! I'm so sorry for not getting back to you sooner!! 
Thank you firstly for the amazing compliments. I do rather like to think that working from cheap and make-do materials is my speciality! *blushes* ;) So, thank you! 
Oh - so you're doing the 'WE'RE COMING IN TO GET NAMI AND BRING THE HOUSE DOWN AND ALSO I'M GUNNA KICK YOUR BUTT SHIKI' suit?! Awesome!!!
Hmm ... the gun! 
Can I just confess something here that I've never actually made something so huge before??!!! O_O 
Have you started on it since you wrote to me?
What materials were you thinking of using? 
I know friends who get wood carved, but if it was me (since I don't have those means) I would probably end up creating it using a foam and papier mache combo ...? 
Anyway, happy to talk, even though I might not be able to help all that much!

Heh heh, It's fine, I'm crap at replying too :)

You're welcome! I'm only stating the truth! :D And yes, it's THAT mother of all badass suits. Even Chuck Norris would pause a minute so that he could stare at it in awe. Too bad it's hard to recreate the outfit :(

I've never made ANYTHING before, so you're probably better off than I am :/

And yes, I have! I got shedloads of cardboard, newspapers, wood, nails, brown faux leather and several sewing machines. papier mache sounds good, but I'm not that crafty. Just crazy.
Once it's finished or on the way there, I'll post pictures. Just not now, it's GCSE season. :/ P.S. Watchback? :D
