Hi everyone! :)
So I'm adding to my Rose Tyler cosplay and I'm working on making the gun she uses in Season 4 - Stolen Earth / Journey's End

See those silver swoopy things near the trigger? That's where I'm stuck. I can't figure out/find something that works for them. :( Anyone have any ideas of what to use and where to get it?

Thanks!

My initial thought would be something like a thick coated wire from the hardware store. Not sure if you can find it in a flat silver like on her gun, but you might be about to find it in another color and then paint it to be silver. They should have a ton of different wires in various gauges at your local hardware store, and it probably wouldn't cost much to get a couple short lengths of wire.

Good idea, I will try that! :) Thank you!

WOW, you got everything done save the little wires? Could I ask what you did exactly?

I tried purchasing a pretty good base for her gun in the form of a Nerf gun, but adding onto it has been a chore. Cardboard won't cooperate and wood shaping is too expensive.

Any advice? I heard a guy who made a Thor hammer used resin, but I know NOTHING about that.

Any help would be appreciated since hardly anyone recognized me without the gun. :)

What about plastic tubing like they use for aquariums? It's less likely to get banged out of shape.
Addons can be PVC pipe and craft foam.
