About this Prop
Construction Details:
Like all of my props and the majority of my non-sewing creations, my dad gave me a lot of assistance. This is two 48" PVC pipes that I cut down to about 6'2" or so, so it was barely taller than me in heels. There's a connector in the middle that's collapsible, and my dad put a spare pipe that was smaller in the middle so that it would hold its shape/keep rigidity. The two boxes at the end are made of posterboard and held together with duct tape, which didn't look quite too clean, but I'm pleased. I got a gun from an FBI kit at the dollar store and stuck it in the barrel. The viewfinder is an energy drink and an aluminum Sprite bottle from a ritzy candy store held together with hotglue and a smaller PVC pipe, held up by corks. The tripod is nonfunctional and is two thin sticks we had in the garage. The end is a baby bottle. Then I painted everything, put a couple bolts into the pipes, and attached a pink guitar strap.
Personal Thoughts:
For my first prop I think I did okay (debatable, I worked on Shizuo's vending machine simultaneously). My dad is a trooper for helping me out with this as much as he did, I got kinda lost. The paint is kinda runny and unclean but it looks okay in pictures so I'm not complaining.
