Fallout New Vegas -rebar club2 by Hypercats Fallout New Vegas -rebar club2 by Hypercats
It looks a lot better in natural light! Got a chance today to get some pics of the rebar club outside in the sunlight. One of my favorite things about it is the brown latex paint I put on the rebar and wiped off with a wet paper towel. It adds that layer of rust and grime in the corners that make the "rebar" look more like it's been used and weathered.

Also, there's a fairly brief tutorial in my blog [link] and a couple pictures. You can easily make this in an afternoon with minimal tools, skill, or materials!

Thanks! It was a lot of fun to make, and I can still bring it to cons. It took a bit of a beating at GeekKon, but it's pretty durable.

Thanks! The trick is in the details. :P On my blog, there's a picture of the fake rebar with just the dark gray spraypaint and it just looks....off. It's that little bit of grime in the corners, I think, that makes it convincing.
