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!
