Medigun by PropMedic Medigun by PropMedic
The current incarnation of the Medigun. Old news to a lot of you, but I have updated it a tad, most noticeably the paint job.

I may futz with this more, but not until everything else is finished.

Your work is obviously a labour of love - no other way could get you get the details so spot-on!

I haven't cosplayed in ages, but your gallery is quite the inspiration. Sure, there may not be cons in Australia for that kind of things, but Blutsauger, say I. Bonesaw. Medigun. TF2 provides the kind of awesome a person needs no social excuse to perpetuate.

And you, sir, are the primary propagator of this VALVe-flavoured awesome-sauce.

Gosh, that's just damn fantastic, man.
Looks so spot on, and I'm amazed at just how relativly simple this was ta make, considerin it seems so believable. I've got some history in cosplay, but I've been outta' the game fer' a while now. Since I started playin TF2 though, I've kinda wanted ta give cosplay another shot. I'd love ta try and pull off a Medic outfit, though I think my body-type is more suited ta the Scout. Hell, maybe I'll try both; maybe in time fer ComicCon. ; )
Medic is my class as well [though I've dabbled with Heavy and Pyro from time ta time]. Fer a first shot in cosplay, you've definatly hit the mark, man! Great work!

Looking at this, it almost makes me wonder why Medics don't simply just bash someone's head in with the Medigun as a last-ditch effort at self-defense. That thing looks like the harbinger of a world of pain!

It also looks like a laser cannon that shoots death lasers.

Sorry, I'm just really amazed. Your cosplay medic outfit is also really amazing, but...wow. I've seen a good Pyro flamethrower or two before, but the medigun just looks so much harder to make. DAMN you are talented.

Old news, perhaps, but that doesn't diminish the appreciation of the craftsmanship involved. Is the paint uneven on the edges (like the concentric edges around where the light shines through) to give it a worn look, or will that be touched up later?

Either way, it's a very, very convincing replica, and the fact that it turned out to be a surprisingly easy build (given its structure) was icing on the cake.

Sigh. Makes me long for the days when I had the time to work tech making odd props for high school productions. Well, not that I don't now, it's just that I'm awfully attached to the 6-8 hours of sleep I've managed to get most nights.

Thanks muchly!

Yes, it's meant to have a worn look; the in-game props all have distressed textures, partly to emphasize their jury-rigged nature. I should have used liquid mask and a silver base coat for a better effect, but this has been a learning project for me -- I normally make much, MUCH smaller replicas and toys.

And really, the only reason I have time for any of this is that I work (mostly) from home!

Well, I'm sure not many people get it exactly right on the first try, whatever they attempt. :]

So what have you usually constructed in your spare time? I have a friend who did rough miniatures of cityscapes that, given the right lighting and a swift pan of a camera, could pass for Hollywood-grade area shots. Do you do something similar?

Myself, it was things that needed to look presentable on stage, without inconveniencing the cast. Like unspillable glasses of wine or re-shatterable plates for a marital spat scene at the dinner table.

I like making smaller props from books (for example, I'm working on making a prop from each Discworld book) and customizing action figures. I'm actually a pit musician IRL, so I tend to envy y'all who do the set, prop, and costume design. Hence, this hobby. :D

Buddeh.

Teh light, I has seen one that I may use in the cheapo-shop but I still need the handle thing at the top and back.

Did you attach that later or did it come with the torch?

PropMedic Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2008
The spotlight came with the handle, which pretty much cinched my decision to be Medic for Halloween back in October. I'm just now wrapping up a proper version of the costume for cons.

You can see all the gun bits over here. Not much has changed.

Runs $25-30 if you buy from Target. Everything else is pretty much just plumbing findings and paint.
