Final Fantasy VIII Gunblade prop wood + costume


Active Member
i built this costume for distant worlds concert in boston in 2011 and i realized i never posted it here. all the parts were in my deviantart though at
Wood for the gun, u'll see 2 boards i made a backup incase i messed up. i used a barrel from a nerf magnum and foam for the grip. nothing else. the symbol i made a vector of and then ended up not using it so i drew/etched it into the wood by hand, freehand. i was rushed never sanded it enough but it came out decent. anyway i'll revisit it at some point but enjoy. for reference im 6'2

Looking really good. 7 & 8 were my favourite games from the series & luckily got to see the distant worlds concert last November in London :)
