Thanks!
The gunblade took months to figure out. I'm going to re-make it though, it's really flimsy and got damaged quite badly.

I was cringing when I read what had happened to your poor gunblade :O That's pretty much my worst nightmare as a fellow carrier of a seemingly sturdy but actually quite fragile prop >.< Good luck fixing it!
