Here is an update on the Portal Gun we've been working on for a personal cosplay. BEHIND THE SCENES TIME! GO!!!!
3D printed and painted the white parts of the portal gun. They turned out great. 8 separate pieces, glued together to make 2 parts. MATH! Primed and painted them this week. Shiney!
3D printed the inside black parts. Epoxy'd them all together today.
Red body filler goop to smooth out any print lines. FILL THOSE LINES! YEAH!
Primed them in the spray booth with automotive primer and my DevilBliss spray gun. The other two parts are the Fallout 4 PipBoy that we're working on.
Placed it all together for a spot check. Looking good!
When walking around a convention all day the weight of your props is very important. What feels ok in your living room starts to rip your arms off after a day of dodging and weaving through a thick crowd at a Con. We started out using dense plastic and layers of bondo to make props. Now it's all impact resistant epoxy and happy times!
Look at our first portal gun from 2012 compared to the new 3D printed one today. What a difference! Plus it is 1/10th the weight. YEAH PROGRESS!
Wiring up lights and sound effects will be coming in future progress reports. Stay tuned for more.
Thanks for comming by!
