I think I only dressed up for Halloween one time in the last 35+ years but for some reason I decided that this year was my year.
I got the kernel of the idea with a few items I picked up at Spirit of Halloween, but the idea kept on growing until I had decided to make a Steampunk brass sniper rifle.
It started with a $10 kids gun from Dollar General Store.
I went through the kitchen drawers and unpacked moving boxes to find things to modify it with.
I used odds and ends that I have had for 25 years.
Then it was time to take it apart and paint it.
I was taking this very seriously…
I was really pleased with the final result.
