If you've made a non-blaster weapon recently as well, post it here!

In wake of the moratorium on blasters, I decided to make myself a stick. I consider it an electrostaff of some kind.

Dis mah zap stick. I named it after Solus. But don't tell him.

I made it because I have a girl-crush on Rey (and her staff) and also because pipe fittings are Swarzy as heck. This was a quick build-- The paint didn't set up quite right and I didn't get a chance to bring it to the level of finish I would have liked thanks to the oncoming Maine winter.

It won't be a mainstay with my kit, but it's a fun prop to have when I can't have a blaster. What I particularly like about it is that it lets me interact with kids who have lightsaber toys when they inevitably come over to hit me with them.

While they're not finished just yet  I made a pair of electro-batons, that can be connected to make a short electrostaff. :D



Going to cover the slots with acrylic that im going to sand up so its opaque to better disperse the light, and of course add some grip to it, but the general concept is done.

Very nice. I've been thinking of making a stun baton myself. Do you have a build thread for this?

I started off by following this tutorial that Ru'Der Marekar did, and just decided to make it two pieces instead. Here's my weapons WIP thread.

Well, you know its all about how you use your zap stick, not whether its flashy or not. Your prey will make the mistake of underestimating you and your solus-named zapstick :D

I'm impressed with how you guys took a potentially negative, and made a great big, fat positive out of it....the inventiveness and creativity of this club never ceases to amaze me. 

I salute you all.  :)

Just built a quick-n-dirty electrostaff for the premier:

Disassembles for easy transport:

And in action on the local news morning show:

Oh, wow! Your zap stick is television famous!

I was a dingus when I made my electrostaff and didn't make it so it could come apart, so it's incredibly cumbersome to move, hahah.

Here's a photo of me and Solus the Zap Stick at the premiere!

THAT is exactly why I made mine into batons instead of just doing a solid staff haha.
