Ok guys, I've been lurking around for about a year now, and I'm finally crawling out from under my rock because... well, I need help!
Usually I comb the forums and research the heck outta my projects until I find my answer or come up with something on my own, but this time I am stumped!
I'm making a Revy costume for a convention and I'm stuck on her guns. I was prepared to make them out of wood or try casting them out of resin, but while I was researching specs, I came across these:
Buy KSC Sword Cutlass (Limited Edition)-KSC & other Airsoft gun accessories at redwolfairsoft.com
and even better priced:
Evike.com - Airsoft Guns | Evike.com - Gas Airsoft Pistols | Evike.com - CQB Master Custom Full Metal M9 Sword Cutlass Airsoft Gas Blowback Pistol by WE |
They are beautiful! There's no way I could be satisfied with plastic or wood now!
So what's the problem, you ask?
I live in Canada.
And while Canada is super chill about well... everything really... for some reason, if you try to import airsoft guns, you will never see them. I can buy them easily enough here (mind you at like triple the price), but it's impossible to order from outside the country and not get them turned away at the border apparently. Most sites even say they can't ship here.
So now, I don't know what to do. I can't UNSEE them hahaha... so I'm obsessing over a way to make them and somehow have them turn out THAT good. And so I turn to you, honorable masters!
I don't need them to function, although I was sort of pining after the ability to cock it for dramatic effect and general badassery... but the look and the weight of metal is really what I'm after. How do you guys do it?
