Steampunk Syringe by masquerangel Steampunk Syringe by masquerangel
This... was genuinely a gift from God.

I've thought a lot about creating a syringe for Victoria, being a medic and all, and I've attempted it a couple times, but... it was only this morning when I realized I should probably make it so that it looked like this. Of course, that WOULD have required me to go out and buy the necessary metal parts required to pull it off, but...

I ended up getting the majority of this project from an estate sale today. Carlos, my mom's fiance, bought a lot of scraps and tools, and when I asked the woman selling how much she wanted for the plumbing parts, etc., she told me to go ahead and include them!

I'm always astounded by the small gifts God throws out our way, you know?

Here's what I used:
-1 brass screw
-1 brass wing nut
-1 brass plumbing-faucet-thing...
-1 brass music box leg
-1 plastic pen cap
-1 nail, and
-go figure, an excessive amount of Superglue.

I'm really satisfied with this one. (Hey, Binc! I'm using it in my costume!) D:

And no, unfortunately, it doesn't work, or even push down like syringes normally do. Ah, well. At least it's pretty freakin' legit, if I might say so myself. ;3

" and when the gun goes off, it sparks and your ready for a surgery" *surgery*

This is amazing! You don't even notice the individual parts until you really focus on it.
Anyway. Very gorgeous work.

Sincerely welcome as such notice and acknowledgment of your talents warrant.

Should it be of interest I have a few sketches posted here on Flickr that could be interpreted into steampunk devices. Feel so invited to review such at your leisure.
