This looks really cool--it's great to see a breakdown of the Pyro flamethrower. Even if it's not right in all the tiny details, it still looks good, and it's a useful guide for those of us making our first flamethrowers. I was just going to make the Axetinguisher and the Homewrecker, but now I'm inspired. Thanks!
This is too funny. I've been thinking I need to get a prop flamethrower for my Joker cosplay. Joker has used them before and can you think of a more dangerous weapon in more dangerous hands? And what does my google search for flamethrower prop cosplay lead me to? This comment by my good friend "Maw" from 2010. Did you ever get your flamethrower built?
No, I never managed to construct it. I made the Pyro's fire axe, but I put the flamethrower on hold because work has really killed my ability to make any huge construction projects right now. It's a great ref, though.
Great to hear from you! And I completely understand being to busy for anything fun. Sucks, don't it?
It is a great ref. I've been toying with the idea of getting one of those "Ripley's Flamethrower from Alien" Props and painting it up Joker style. Can you imagine how crazy fun deadly my Joker would be with one of those? But alas, work and a lack of funds have so far prevented such an endeavor. It's funny, isn't it, that we work so much yet money always seems scare.
EPIC! I'm actually hoping to have a Pyro cosplay someday-working on a Sniper now though as I dun feel like makin' a full body suit. This'll come in handy for when I get around to it though. It looks awsome!
thanks :3 the finished version looks more awesome then u may even imagine. but its to heavy to cary because of the propan tank. i took it to a convention and it got damaged. i will fix this up next spring and then upload a picture of it. i think it will become some sort of sculpture in my home then it was just to expensive to drop it into the trash^^
Ah, the curse of large props-they're always so heavy. Having to lug around heavy backpacks in highschool is great conditioning though, lol. My Sniper cosplay's going to have a shitlaod of wooden props-riffle, kukri, and razorback. |D I'm amazed I dun have back problems actually. XD
Realy? I would like to see your items then But u know, that u can't wear razorback and kukri at the same time yeah? xD Another problem with the Pyro is the costume itself. I ordered a gasmask (hes wearing a britian s10 by the way^^) and fuck.. you can't breath while carying such a large prop -.-
i will redo this cosplay when i got time. i love pyro so much
yeah, will be painted black as soon as i get home^^ its a little difficult to find a real gas pump that comes close to a real american one from arround the sixtys. so i will replicate it. it will also look more similar this way^^
