I thought I would share this with everyone here. I am really excited for these and I am really happy with how they came out! I will be Cosplaying Yang from RWBY at Anime Expo and hopefully comic con this year. I am still putting together the entire cosplay/outfit and I am also working on a tutorial for how I made the blaster.

 

Here it is! Hope you guys like them as much as I do!

 

The Nerf Blaster I used was the FireStrike Elite for each bracer. I basically striped down each blaster to its core of the plunger and the barrel. I then used a wooden dowel to create a lever style trigger to push up on the pull back catch. This allows me to press down on the dowel and fire the nerf gun.

 

I also removed the limiter since it was really easy to do and mounted the blasters to the foam directly with hot glue and gorilla tap. The rest is basically cosmetic. I used Gym mat EVA foam for the actual bracers and 3MM EVA foam for some detail parts like the dart holster. Each gauntlet holds 6 darts plus a single in the barrel, for a total of 7 darts.

 

The pull back is directly behind the rear fins and sits along the inside of the forearm. This allows for a little bit of pull back room to reach and use the pull back.

 

I am currently working on a full video tutorial and hope to have it up in a week or so!

Hopefully this link works =0

 

Here is a Youtube video of me firing it. Skip towards the end if you don't want to hear me ramble!

Much love, happy hunting!

I could be wrong, but since your title is "member" instead of FNG, I think you can post more. Just don't abuse the right.  ;) 

Anyway, these look cool. What blasters did you end up using? The Switchshot/Wii blaster?

This is unbelievable.  Just finished season 3.  I would love to see more works like this. I would love to do stuff like this.  Where do you get your hands on your EVA foam?  I was thinking of doing custom externals on a stryfe or something.  Great work.

Sorry I haven't been around! Work has been busy and lucky kill enough, I won fan art Friday at roosterteeth for my Ember Celicas!

The EVA foam I used was a gym mat foam. You can get your hands on it at Walmart or on amazon. It's pretty cheap stuff, around $20 for a good amount.

I'm going to work on Nora's hammer next with Cyclone Megastrike internals!

That will happen once I finish my tutorials. Part one is up on youtube now with part two to follow this week!

Thanks for the support guys!

Do you mean ruby's Cresent rose? I have some thoughts on it but I honestly have not drawn it up. The hardest part will be cresting a handle that isn't ridiculous and big to fit the blaster.

Nice, can't wait to see what you make in the future.

 

When the whole costume is done I'd love to see a picture.

I'm currently working on Gambal shroud with a nerf X1 and Pulse Pistols with a modified Stryfe!

I will post pictures once the cosplay is done :-)
