Steampunk Lady Killer Pistol

I made this Steampunk Lady Killer Pistol and Garter Holster for my wife to wear at this year’s Steampunk World’s Fair in Piscataway NJ. A while back I purchased a 2 pack of small water pistols with the idea of making a discrete gun. I hadn’t really looked at them until the World’s Fair came around and I pulled out a bunch of items to see if I could get any ideas. Among the items I pulled out was a blue finger light that was almost the same color blue as one of the guns. The blue gun was also shaped slightly different then the orange gun in the picture which I used to show the original size of the gun and that it was really a water pistol. Looking at the blue gun it seemed as though the finger light would fit inside it and I thought it would be cool but of course it wasn’t that simple. I split the gun apart and the light kind of fit but I had to use my Dremel to sand down certain areas. Once I had the light inside the hard part was figuring out how to turn the light on and off. I took the finger light apart to see how it worked and after much frustration and cursing I figured out how to attach the switch to the trigger of the gun. So instead of shooting water now it shoots rays of light. The only down side is that you can’t change the batteries without breaking the gun apart. I made the holster from leather, ribbon and a latch hook.

Steampunk Nerf Maverick Skull X

Steampunk Nerf Maverick Skull X

I know there a literally hundreds if not thousands of Steampunked Nerf Mavericks out there and so many of them are amazing but I still had to throw my hat in the ring and make one of my own. So here is my Nerf Maverick Skull X. I used LED lights that turn on when the trigger is pulled and the gun still fires. One of my future projects will be a holster for this gun. Thanks for looking and commenting I really appreciate it.

Steampunk Sexy Demon Goggles

Steampunk Sexy Demon Goggles

I’m stilling feeling the high from the Steampunk World’s Fair this past weekend so here’s an extra post. I made these goggles by special request for my fiancé to wear at the convention. The horns and were her idea and the rest she left up to me. I was really happy with the end result. I bought an inexpensive pair of goggle and used oven baked clay to create the horns and other accents. Thanks for viewing.

Steampunk World’s Fair Weekend

Steampunk World’s Fair Weekend

This past weekend May 18th to the 20th was the Steampunk World’s Fair in New Jersey and it was fantastic. There was no limit to the imagination and creativity of my fellow Steampunk fans that attended. Being there was like being in another world and I didn’t want to leave. There were bands playing, burlesque shows, jugglers and plenty of vendors. They had talks on the history of Steampunk, where it’s been and where it’s going, and tutorials on creating your own Steampunk style. I attended a presentation with special guests Dr. Grymm and members of The Red Fork Empire. All in all it was amazing and I can’t wait for the next convention.

Nerf N-Strike Jolt EX-1 Blaster Steampunk Telescopic Pistol Mod

Nerf N-Strike Jolt EX-1 Blaster Steampunk Telescopic Pistol Mod

This post follows from my last post. It’s the companion pistol to the Steampunk shotgun I previously created. For this mod I started with a Nerf N-Strike Jolt EX-1 Blaster and a Toysmith Pirate Telescope and at completion both are still functional. I also used gears, tubing, miscellaneous toy parts, a cameo pin and other found objects. I hope you enjoy this entry and please come back for my next post which will be a Steampunk lamp.

Buzz Bee Double Shot Steampunk Mod

Here is my Steampunk mod of the Buzz Bee Double Shot, Nerf style dart gun.  I used metallic paint, copper wire, gears, contact paper, radio tube, a small light I purchased at Joanne’s Fabrics and found objects. I have to say that I’m really happy and proud of the way this turned out and I’m really excited to show it off at the Steampunk World’s Fair. Thanks for visiting and check back for my mod of the Nerf N-Strike Jolt EX-1 Blaster which I will be making to accompany the Double Shot.
