Steampunk Sniper

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 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.
