Thing a Week 6: Duct tape holster.

For this week’s Thing a Week, I’m getting ready to go to the bi-annual Copenhagen Burlesque party.

This event requires a costume to get in. This year, I have decided to go with a mix of previous costumes to create a Steampunk Huntsman costume. To this end, I am getting a plastic axe to modify to go with my costume.

The first time I went to the Copenhagen Burlesque in a steampunk getup, I painted a Nerf gun (the Maverick model) to fit in with the aesthetic.

Even though my main accessory will be the axe, I still want to bring the gun.

I’ve made a rough holster for the gun out of black duct tape. At the moment, it still needs some fixin’ – at least if I want to be able to draw the gun easily.

The final big change to the holster will be a strap that runs through the holster, and around my thigh to hold the gun in place. I have decided to wait with that until when I am actually putting on my costume, though.

I am also finishing up my first video game review for the website – I’m reviewing Dying Light! I am mostly done with the text, and am currently editing together a video, so people have their choice of reading the review, or listening to it.
