Creating a Ray Gun posted by Bella Gunne

After several days of internet searches, we realized just how expensive Steampunk can be.  So, Pris and Cyrus (her B.O.S.S. partner) decided to show us that there is a cheaper way to create a ray gun.  The base is a $1 toy gun that shoots ping pong balls.  It was spray painted with silver Fusion paint.  The rear cap was removed and the ring around the barrel was also removed.  Those 2 pieces were painted with copper hammered spray paint.  A battery-powered flickering tea light was inserted in the barrel.  Then, held in place with the ring and rear cap.  The mouthpiece from a brass candle holder that looked like a bugle was glued to the cap to make the new firing barrel.  I have discovered that E6000 works great!  I still have a target sight to attach and maybe a few other things.  But, you get the idea!

Our mutual passion for costumes, history and syfy led us down this track.  We hope you enjoy our posts as much as we will enjoy creating them.  Steam on.....
