OK, I've succumb to the lure of Steampunk. So I've been playing around with jewelry findings and some odds and ends I got from Home Depot in the fittings for bathroom etc. I felt if my 18" American Girl was going steampunk she would need a ray gun. So how does one make that? Just like I did. You play with pieces and parts till something emerges like this little 6 1/4" X 2" futuristic gun. I hand carved the handle to fit the barrel of the gun. I think it looks like it could fire and if it did it would certainly hurt.
What do you think?
Like the bodice daggers of old this would work as a bodice ray gun people size. One would just have to make sure you didn't set it off by accident. lol
