Neurotoxin prop?

So I'm toying with the idea of having neurotoxin as a prop for my GLaDOS cosplay. Originally I thought of using a needle but then figured that wouldn't make much sense since it's a gas.
Anyone have any ideas for what I could use?

ooo, that's a clever idea! in portal 2, there's that HUGE neurotoxin tank:

so you could always make like... a little version of the tank and put a biohazard sign on it and a "neurotoxin" label? i swear i've seen a tutorial somewhere where someone made cosplay tanks out of 2 liter soda bottles....

Hmm, that sounds like a good idea. Someone on another forum suggested using a container filled with green liquid and attaching a hose to it with like a sprayer nozzle. He pointed out that some gases are liquids when under pressure...
But maybe I can combine the two ideas...

using a spray bottle to threaten people with neurotoxin could be really funny--and refreshing! just make sure if you spray people that it's the bottle that's colored and not the water or else you could run the risk of dying everyone green. XD

Ha, that would be funny, but I wouldn't go around spraying people honestly. Maybe my friends, and perhaps if they wanted me to, people at the photoshoot. But I will keep all these ideas in mind. Thanks!

Old fumigator thing?

Maybe one of those old pumps people used to use to pump out fumigation gasses?
Sort of like this, but with an aperture twist on it:

Oh wow that would have been so perfect! I actually went with the soda bottle/tank thing; it's not perfect, but it came out decent enough. I added a tube and sprayer to it. But maybe I will try to do something like this later on. I really, really like that idea! Thank you!
EDIT: Actually, this idea is too awesome to put aside. I'm totally doing it.

So I totally meant to upload these pictures a loooong while ago, but I kept forgetting >_< Anyhow, I didn't bring the neurotoxin with me to Anime Boston, but I'm planning on bringing it next year as well as a few cons between then and now. Here are the pictures:

The paint is a little drippy since I'm not great at painting. And I intended for the stick to be able to move in and out, but it was too unstable, so I had to glue it there. Still, I'm pretty happy with it. Thanks for everyone's help!

I love the simplicity of it, and how it looks like one of those vintage poison sprayers. Excellent work!

Thanks! TheAlaskanSofa gave me the idea for the fumigator. It was such a great idea that I scrapped the design I had been working on to make this ^^

One thing I would do is add the 50s/60s Aperture logo to the actual canister, but that's just a suggestion.
