Painting dual pistols tutorial by Madenice Painting dual pistols tutorial by Madenice
So I didn't have the right dual pistols for the Lara Croft costume, but I do now! :D

Here is my way of how I painted the dual pistols into the right color.

Looks like an excellent transformation. They must feel very light though. I was thinking, if you wanted to make them feel more realistic, maybe you could pack the inside with plasticine, or put something else heavy inside.

Thank you! And yes, it has its pros and cons; now it doesn't take up much energy to walk around all day and hold them in crazy poses ^^ However, your idea is nice!!

My guess is, it would help you forget that they're toys, and you'd enjoy the weightier feel. Maybe you'd also have to beef up your holster assembly though, to handle the new weight.

Did you leave some orange on the tip? Most conventions don't allow any sort of gun without out the orange tip anymore. Great Tutorial though!

Yes I did :) Thank you! :)

If you look closely, you can see a bit orange. I thought the original orange 'tip' was too much, so I left only at front the orange unpainted.

Otherwise, you can see it clear on the following photo:

a very good tutorial. but im curious as to what the guns would look like with a black was applied to certan spots, you know to give them some realistic look...

Thank you :) In the future I think I will try that, or with some chromespray, so they will almost look real :)

The "black thingies" are called "grips" ;)

Nice job! I wish I had put this kind of work into the Fallout Vault Suit I made for San Diego Comic-Con in 2010, but it was my first cosplay and I hadn't done my research. Still came out ok. Misplaced the pictures, though :(

You're right, thank you!

Yeah, it takes a lot of patience and thinking to do everything piece by piece. I find myself skipping parts when making cosplay props/outfits. So I'm really glad when I take the time to do so as with the pistols. :)

I'm curious to know who needs a tutorial on how to spray-paint toy guns...

By the way you could also buy air soft guns. They look more realistic than spray-painted toy guns.

Air soft guns are prohibited in my country, so that's a no go for me :( And in this way it was way cheaper and fun to do :)

So you're telling me that you're allowed to smoke weed in you country but you're NOT allowed to own air soft guns? That's kind of funny, isn't it?
Yeah, it probably was fun to do, and definitely the better choice than prohibitet airsoft guns ;)
