Building a Gauss Rifle Replica
Cosplayers don’t mess around when it comes to their costume or their accessories. Take this epic looking Gauss Rifle replica from Fallout 4. The attention to detail and finished product are amazing. You have to see it to believe it:
The Gauss Rifle (The Last Minute) was my favorite weapon in Fallout 4! So it was the perfect project for my upcoming costume! Made mainly out of laser cut EVA foam as well as a few 3D printed parts – it took Benni, his brother Jakob and me two weeks to bring it together.
For the rusting effect we bought iron powder from eBay and hydrogen peroxide (3%) form the local pharmacy.
The light effect was made with one meter of Neopixel LED strips (60 LEDs/meter), a Trinket pro 5V and a Powerboost 500c from Adafruit. I just edited the code from the Neopixel library for my animation.
