Fallout Props & Costumes
We’ve been loving Fallout 4 and every time we sit down to play, we point at something and say “I want to make that!” Here’s a collection of our Fallout 4 builds so far. We’ve used the Mister Handy model and the Nuka Cola Rocket Bottle to show how to mold and cast props. Our Mechanist and Assaultron costumes are made out of foam. Bill also got the collector’s edition of Fallout 4 to repaint the Pip-Boy.
Bill and Ali Williams teamed up to bring the Nuka Cola Thirst Zapper prop to live! Together at the Matterhackers shop, the duo assembled and painted the prop gun.
Britt shows how she made the Fallout 4 Assaultron headpiece and how all the armor is assembled and attached to the undersuit.
Bill touches up a couple of damaged parts of his Mechanist costume from Fallout 4. He also installs a new face plate for his iPhone Pipboy gauntlet.
Britt from Punished Props seals and paints her Fallout 4 Assaultron armor and undersuit. The armor is sealed with latex, then painted with oil paints. The bodysuit is airbrushed with Createx airbrush paints and detailed with fabric markers.
Follow along with Bill in the shop as he shows off three different methods for casting urethane prop parts.
Bill from Punished Props runs around San Diego Comic Con in his Mechanist Costume from Fallout 4.
Mechanist shenanigans. See you at Comic Con!
After several attempts, Britt finally settles on a foam build that works for the Fallout 4 Assaultron’s hands. In this live stream, Britt uses Inkscape to import her final finger template to the laser cutter and shows the whole cutting process.
Britt figures out the bicep and forearm pieces for her Fallout 4 Assaultron Cosplay. She also shows how she made the back antenna and shoulders out of foam.
With San Diego Comic Con rapidly approaching, Bill gets to work painting his Mechanist helmet. Follow along as he shows you how to apply rubber cement paint to a foam helmet that’s been sealed with latex rubber.
Bill has been building his Mechanist helmet from Fallout 4 and needed to add the ear antennas. So he tried out mixing some materials and 3D printed them to add to the foam helmet.
Britt goes over the foam fabrication for her Fallout 4 Assaultron cosplay’s torso armor and adds some details.
