Costume Information

Cost : About £20
Time Taken : A Month

I had to make this as part of my Uni course in 'Prop Design and Special Effects'.
The purpose of the excercise was to learn how to handle and shape wood using the tools and equipment in the work shop.

It was made by drawing the shape on a strip of pine wood n than cut it out sing the Ban-Saw, then sanded down using the the Orbital Disc-Sander and the Bobbin' Sander.
I used a milling machine to make a deep groove for the barrel to rest in.
The barrel was made from a using some platic pipe, while the rest of the detail was made using strips of plastic heated and bent/cut into shape and Milliput to flesh it out, such as the Firing mechanism (The Hammer, The Frizzen, The Pan etc).


this is awesomely made dude! might steal it to add to my captain sparrow XD

So very cool. Readign the information was a bit of a light bulb moment as to how you have such an awesome workshop and collection of tools. Uni course in 'Prop Design and Special Effects' for the win.
