Yea, I don't want to destroy my good lightsaber. PVC and wire idea sounds great though. Could be a good way to get practice with those materials/handmaking things.

You can go that route or you could hit up your local thrift stores for actual broken or second hand lightsabers. That is how I made the lightsaber trophies for my kit - bought 3 used lightsabers for maybe $8?

No, a green-tinted #5 visor is not visibly green; it looks black. In bright environments, there is a VERY faint green tinge, but under any indoor lighting conditions, it just looks black.

I would say probably the delta trooper.
The delta troopers stock is pretty similar to the stock of the rifle, and with some sanding, bondo, and maybe some sintra, you'll get the right profile there. You could also definitely sand and/or cut down the blue area connecting the stock to the body, to give it a slimmer profile. For the main body, there aren't really any nerf guns with just a slightly curved bottom, so I'd recommend curving some sintra around it for the smooth look. For the barrel, maybe PVC pipe, though you may have to cut out some of the supports on the inside. I'm currently modding this gun, 3/4" PVC pipe looks good for the barrel, but it's just a tad to wide, so just take a jigsaw to it.

oh!

thank you so much.

after looking at the Old republic era spread, would the Ardent Defender's blaster rifle be  a good choice?

Could you maybe show a picture of the type of rifle your making? I've spent a great deal of time looking at the Neo-Crusader reference image library, (Hoping to do one of those in a few years) and there's quite a few different types of rifles, so if you could pick out a picture from there, or maybe the Blaster Rifle Crusader section, that would help a lot in choosing which nerf gun to go for.

After Reading over the CRL and looking through the Jadd halls of knowledge,
i've learned the guidelines for making a proper Neo crusader rifle is very straight forward, even more so with NERF gun conversion, which is fair.
no point in putting in all the effort into a great costume just for people to see the NERF logos all over your guns, right?

i understand it's a massive undertaking already picking a Neo crusader build, but even still i want to try modding one to use for my build.

i'm attempting to find which gun would be more fitting in the old republic timeline,

the Retaliator,




the Echo CS10,



or the Delta Trooper.



either way i KNOW i have to gut whichever rifle out for functional parts and pieces,
sand down the logo and triangle plating indicative of NERF guns,
fill up screwholes and the fancy perforated chamber ports and bondo up portions of the stock, handle and trigger,
and add a barrel inline with SW aesthetic,
them's the rules.

i would like to pick and use one that's inline with old war deco.
could anyone give any advice or suggestions?

Female Armor / Bo-Katan (live-action) research and WIP
« Last post by GoldenCat on Dec 03, 2020, 05:18 AM »
This is the level of excitement that I have for this build - :porg2:

Warning - for the next month this topic will probably be more of a research thread to share my findings, asking for advice and etc. Although I hope that I can start crafting on the holidays, I really want to take this build seriously so it might take a while.

Hopefully this will be my first live-action approved costume.
So far I spend the last few weeks since the episode gathering as much refs as I could. My ref album - https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1cvCEU4eT4-xXGxOPKiZMJzgZROTfzXNu?usp=sharing

(reserved space for complete costume breakdown, with any luck I'll update the post till next weekends)
