Costume Gun

We needed a good prop for Darren's mafia costume this Halloween so we decided to make a machine gun. It was fun to watch him in the toy store trying to pick the right model for his costume although it took longer than it should have. He had to look at all of them but ended up buying the first one he saw. (*grin*)

The technique below would also work well for a Master Chief or Lara Croft costume. This prop is good for a Halloween party with friends or family but it is NOT something that you should make to take to school. I recommend that you leave parts unpainted to make it obvious that it is a prop or if you are really concerned choose a color of paint that is less realistic. For example, if you are wearing a purple Master Chief costume then paint your gun purple as well.
