Information

After Vash I was on a bit of a Trigun hi and wanted to cosplay lots of the characters. Wolfwood is such an easy costume that the main draw was making a detailed full size crosspunisher gun.

I've never had as much fun posing for photo's as I did with this!

Thats very very good propmaking right there! Question though, On the main barrel, does the cardboard support its own weight? or did you reinforce it?

Cheers :) All of the weight is supported by the crosspiece, which is solid. Most of the barrel is hollow. On reflection I should have extended the crosspiece at least a third of the way down the barrel to help it keep it's regitity as it's got a little floppy now. That would have made it a lot heavier though.

Do you have any kind of guide to make that? Im gonna be doing Wolfy and I'd love to be able to make such a prop *awe awe*

No guide I'm afraid. The construction was very simple though. The whole things is built around/supported by the crosspiece which is layered corrugated card (it was made from packing boxes). The rest is simple box shapes made from the same card and detailed. I used masking tape to tidy up the edges/joins and then sealed it all with a couple of coats of PVA glue before painting it.
