By the way, I hope nobody decapitates me for bumping this, but im satill searching for tips on two things. First the surface material im gonna use, although im reasonably set on using something like worbla.
The other thing would be the main gun.
Im still not entirely certain on what kind of system to use to "fire" it. The non-con version may use simple firecrackers, since those are easy to come by and reasonably safe to detonate, and should deliver enough sound and visual effect. Obviously I cant take that to a con since pyrotechnics are forbidden.
Now, I had a few other ideas, that would be for cons.
One would be a system with pressurized gas, maybe something like a CO2 fire extinguisher, that could deliver at least a bit of smoke, ive seen dalek costumes on cons using that for example.
Another idea would be to use basically plush dummy shells i could throw through the barrel. Range would be severely limited, but it wouldnt be very dangerous and have some fun value too.
Im still open for more ideas on either point.
