RWBY - Weapons Tutorial Completed

I did the props for 3 of the 4 main cast from Monty Oum's RWBY for their booth at SDCC 2013. If people don't use my methods I'm sure the stellar references I was given will be of some help! Enjoy!

GOOD LORD THAT'S AWESOME!!

You officially made me want to figure out what this series even IS so I can cosplay....Is her name Ruby?....lol

EDIT!!!!
Mmk, so I watched the 3 episodes on RoosterTeeth, and I love this series so far. I wonder though..You seem to be the best one to make this so far and seem to know all the separate parts..Not sure if you watched the way it folds up and what not, but do you think there is a funtional way to fold up into the gun? It looks like the pieces just sit againt eachother, but I wonder if I use magnets and such other things and make it foldable..But also make it stong enough that I can flick it out into the form of a scythe..Obviously I would have to physically fold everything back down, that's no problem, it's just making it flip OUT..Any thoughts?

Well anything is truly possible, however I don't feel like I would be able to make it well enough that it wouldn't compromise some of the aesthetics of either form. GL with yours!

Lol yea I actually figured that out like right after I wrote that..I made a small scale version and it totally won't work while looking correct in both modes..

And actually, I started making my scythe if you'd like to see, but it's cardboard because that's free lol

Looks good so far! I would highly recommend using a rectangular shaft for the scythe to alleviate headaches making the rifle section. I had a circular shaft and tossed it and I am very happy that I did. GL!

I was thinking of making it look rectangular after. My main idea was to use wood planks (I guess that's what they are). I used one in my friends sword because it has a more rectangular handle base and I liked it. I think the one I got was 1.5"wide, 1/4"thick and like 8-10'tall..I was gonna use that in layers for mots way into the berrel (then use a pvc connector as the berrel head), then sand the layered wood enough to glue it into a pipe. It's too hard to tell what the hell it even is suppose to be..I know for sure the black at the bottom of the handle, after the chamder, is rounded though. Not sure if you ever noticed, but there's a piece right after the red chamber area, that's on the black part, and it folds down to make the handle and has a trigger on it..It's better seen here:

It's the part in the cesond pic where it now has a gun handle.

Brilliant is the only thing I can say.

Props and costumes were spectacularly done.

Can't wait to see the rest of the cast.

ATM, I working on creating my own Adam. Hope it's just as great as yours.
