Props can really make or break a cosplay, but if your focus is Fallout, then this laser rifle will definitely fit the bill. It was created by university modelmaking student Thomas Hughes who will be using the funds from its sale to help pay for his education. From the product page:
This is a lifesize Fallout 3 AER9 Laser Rifle 1:1 Prop measuring 1 metre long, cast in fibreglass and resin pieces and individually hand painted. I’d say it was about 95% accurate to the game version, I did make a few changes here and there to make moulding and casting a bit easier.
If this is what he’s making in school, just imagine what he’ll build when he graduates.
