Welcome to the "making of" of the Master of Octopuses weapon! The villain of the film project ATTACK OF THE CYBER OCTOPUSES! One more time the prop is made by Luca Baggiarini, check out his vimeo channel to watch some of his cool movies!
He started from a standard NERF Maverick toy gun, adding some styrene on the handle and doing a first coat of paint.
Since there's already a painted Nerf Strongarm in the movie, Luca wanted to make something different, adding various random pieces found here and there...
Here is how it looks after some painting...
Unhappy with the result, Luca decided to add some more pieces and restart the painting.
The final touch was adding an octopus logo stencil, to make it more original and clearly different from the other characters weapons. This is the final result!
And here the fancy photos to present the weapon! Pretty badass, uh?
