These (my Moxxi and my hubby's Dr Zed) are my first cosplays, but being the perfectionist that I am, I find that with enough research (and enough dicking around), just about anything is possible. Even if there isn't a tutorial out there for Rubi yet, there are plenty of tutorials for other guns, so I'll wing it between that and instinct

Like PetiteAltesse said, you can always go the Nerf gun route if you don't want to get too crazy into sculpting and whatnot, and there are quite a few tutorials on adding electronics to props if you look for them. If you end up deciding not to put electronics in, that works too, people will recognize your costume and love your work even if it's not 100% accurate, but if you have the time and resources to research and experiment a little, you may surprise yourself with what you come up with I'm sure you'll do a fine job on your props, no matter what you choose to do!

No worries, just do what you can, and love every minute of wearing it!

I swear I am going to get to work on my buzzaxe (for my hubby's Dr Zed) this week. I picked up a wood burning tool the other day and I'm planning on using it to shape the blade of my foam sword closer to the buzzaxe shaft shape with it before coating the whole shaft in air dry clay. It may be a terrible, terrible failure, but at least the sword is too long, so I can test technique on the excess before I try anything stupid

update - arm is being worked on. found gloves to use for it and new stripped leggins due to the ones i have there is a hole in them. the wrench and hammer are getting worked on and the vest sadly needed to be started over due to my boss's cats well they were cats...leaving it at that. my job is to work on the shoes and to find a lunch box to use and start working on that. i am going to save the hair for my second con i will be wearing this to so i will be able to afford a wig and the wig head to work on it with. as for the rubi same issue i cant afford to work on it till after the con in august.

i am doing a black and white version of her so yeah i painted the logo on the shoes black and white. so they turned out nicely. one side of the shoes is funny cause they have anarchy and peace on them. i thought they fitted her. ^.^

Just uploaded a few new pics of progress on my new Gunzerker with the minecraft skin. Recently finished painting the majority of the shield and also uploaded a preview of the fabric.

The shield was 3D printed by a buddy in Australia.
