Pip-boy Incomplete


Nuka- Colas


Costume Information

Cost : About £50 (£30 for the perfect pair of Black Leather Boots)
Time Taken : About 5 hours

A Vault 101 Jumpsuit with a pip-boy 3000a, Nuka-cola, Nuka-grenade and Maybe a Combat shot gun and Nuka-cola Quantum.

For the jumpsuit I am going to use a Navy Blue Boilersuit and add yellow fabric to it for the details.

I have Made the base for the pip-boy 3000a using old cardboard and foam, now all I need to do is paint it.

For the Nuka-cola I am going to buy a Glass Coka-Cola bottle and replace the label with the Nuka-Cola label and stick a label on the lid to make it say Nuka-Cola.

For the Grenade i'll be using an instructable I found.

For the combat shotgun i'll using cardboard to make it and i'll use the a template I found on DeviantArt.

For the Quantum i'll be using a similair method as the Nuka-Cola but i'll put a blue LED in the bottom of the bottle and i'll use spite or something similair with blue food colouring.

I was abit lazy last week a didn't do anything, but did manage to figure out how do the quantum properly and also how to do the belt.
With the quantum i'll use a small clear pipe and i'll put that in th bottle with all the LEDs and wires in and then i'll make a spiecal lid to put my battery in.
For the belt i'm going to take aload of old toilet roll tubes and i'm going to cut them in half and flatten them, then i'll staple them to my belt and finally i'll paint it.

My Boilersuit (Posted 25th September 2009)

My boilersuit came yesterday. I started on the piece of leather stuff on right arm and that is fine now. Next week I will remove the pocket from my right side znd I will also cut out the big and small 101 and stick them on, I will then do the yellow trims too.
After I have finished making the jumpsuit I will go back to work on the props.

Bought/Found everything I need. (Posted 24th September 2009)

On Tuesday I made most of my nuka-grenade, all I need is that metal off KT.
Yesterday I got together everything I need for making all my props and stuff.
I have now made 2 nuka colas and I have started on the quantum but I do need to talk to David about attaching the LED.
Tommorow I will try and finish my Gun.
Next week my Boilersuit should have arrived, which means I can then start on that.
