See, you two got it! Of course, making a fully usable gunblade (with rotating barrel and bullets) is a lot easier said than done. I made mine in 2 months because of all my procrasination. Wood Burning kit? Really? Wow, I never even tried to use that. I just sat there near the end and etched it into ...

I made my recent one out of pine wood. Turned out great, it's very durable *knows how she randomly shoves things places*, and it holds up to a lot of bang. It takes longer to make and you need to have some level of skill (I usually ask my step-dad to help me) but it lasts much longer and can hold up...

All you really have to do is touch up a few areas and bring an ...

What I usually do...

Is bend a wire frame and then cover over the "skeleton" with white muslin then stuff anything (I use extra of whatever's lying around my house) at the tops to make the impression of bones. Then I just hot glue the feathers on and attach the straps. My way is very good because they're usually very st...

That's what I thought...

I mean, I thought that they were actually on her back and for that, depending on what type of fabric, I would either paint it on, embroider it (for a more detailed look) or cut out the strips of fabric and sew it on from there.
