The Volpin Project: Building The Halo Needler (via Tested)

"The Halo Needler has been on my personal list of stuff I really want to make since I first played Halo: Combat Evolved back in college. The design of this gun has undergone a lot of changes in the past 12 years and six Halo titles it has appeared in, but it’s always remained one of my favorites. The complexity of the finished prop rivals that of my Daft Punk helmet replicas, and I couldn’t be happier with the results.

A summary of the build is really a listing of numbers: 15 different molds were created for the individual components and 24 cast parts go into the final product. There are 54 LEDs that illuminate the needles as well as various blue accents throughout the body of the gun. The final product is 31 inches long, weighs 10 pounds and can play three sound effects from Halo Reach: power on, semi-auto fire and full auto fire. Also built into the gun is the ability to run the electronics from a wall power adapter or three AAA batteries”

Volpin Props’ Harrison Krix

One of the more prominent names from the prop-building community is Harrison Krix, who builds prop replicas under the moniker Volpin Props. Along with prop makers like our pal Bill Doran (aka Punished Props), Harrison almost exclusively builds replicas of items from video games—futuristic assault rifles from Mass Effect, swords from Soul Calibur, and helmets from Skyrim are just a few projects he’s worked on in the past two and a half years.

Anonymous asked you:




if people can spend many hours and lots of money creating cosplay outfits, i don’t see why they can’t also get in shape to play an anime character (who most likely is in shape).



Here is the thing…

One: “getting in shape” it’s not as easy as you may think, that takes a lot of time,  dedication and will and personally the people who work hard to accomplish this have all my respect.


Second the comic book / anime / videogames  characters more often than not have very idealized (not to mention oversexualized) body types that are very far from representing the average person.

You can even skip my two previous points  because most importantly  cosplayers are in no obligation to fit anyone’s particular viewpoint on beauty or body type, you can like or dislike as much as you want how someone looks on his/her outfit but projecting that as a rule for cosplayers it’s just wrong.

Yes, cosplayers anyone loves positive reactions to their outfits but that doesn’t mean they have to be governed by what other people think, less so by the self appointed cosplay body police.

I’m aware there is also a competition aspect to cosplaying and judgment is involved there but I’ll let that part of the discussion to “profesional cosplayers”
Have a nice day
