Steampunk Lady Killer Pistol and Garter Holster by ajldesign Steampunk Lady Killer Pistol and Garter Holster by ajldesign
I made this Steampunk Lady Killer Pistol and Garter Holster for my wife to wear at this year's Steampunk World's Fair in Piscataway NJ. A while back I purchased a 2 pack of small water pistols with the idea of making a discrete gun. I hadn't really looked at them until the World's Fair came around and I pulled out a bunch of items to see if I could get any ideas. Among the items I pulled out was a blue finger light that was almost the same color blue as one of the guns. The blue gun was also shaped slightly different then the orange gun in the picture which I used to show the original size of the gun and that it was really a water pistol. Looking at the blue gun it seemed as though the finger light would fit inside it and I thought it would be cool but of course it wasn't that simple. I split the gun apart and the light kind of fit but I had to use my Dremel to sand down certain areas. Once I had the light inside the hard part was figuring out how to turn the light on and off. I took the finger light apart to see how it worked and after much frustration and cursing I figured out how to attach the switch to the trigger of the gun. So instead of shooting water now it shoots rays of light. The only down side is that you can't change the batteries without breaking the gun apart. I made the holster from leather, ribbon and a latch hook. You can see my wife modeling both in the bottom picture.
