Fallout New Vegas - rebar club by Hypercats Fallout New Vegas - rebar club by Hypercats
A rebar club I made for my wife's Red Lucy costume. She didn't want Dinner Bell, or a hunting shotgun, she wanted the rebar club because she uses it A LOT in F:NV.

Made with wooden dowels, wood glue, yarn, styrofoam, and some rattle cans.

Thanks for pointing that out, I didn't take pictures of the styrofoam pieces!

I took 3 pieces of 2" thick pink polystyrene and glued them together to give me a roughly 12"x12"x6" block. Then I took a hacksaw with a fine toothed blade and sawed pieces off of the block. The saw leaves a pretty rough surface when it cuts, which is what you want.

Yeah same here. If you have a free day or two, you can get it done over a weekend though.

ya, i have no problem in constructing props, its just painting/weathering that is a bit tricky.. Even tho i used to build and paint plastic models, i stil have not mastered the weathering technique :3

Must have taken a while, I probably have a easier way of making one:

1. Find some concrete with some rebar sticking out of it

2. USE PURE TESTOSTERONE AND RIP THAT SHIT RIGHT OUT OF THE GOD DAMN GROUND WHILE SCREAMING!!!!! RRRRRRAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm kidding, very nicely done dude, it actually looks like the real deal.

Thanks! I actually made it in an afternoon whilst doing other things. I can't take real rebar and concrete to conventions, because that stuff gets heavy after 5 beers, let alone 15.

I must say, when I saw this I and began reading the description, I was a tad scared to imagine someone running around with this as part of a costume. It looks so real.
Great job.
