Bioshocker - Steampunk Pistol by Indirie Bioshocker - Steampunk Pistol by Indirie
The "Bioshocker" was submerged in an underwater city for some time, that's why this wonderful weapon looks a bit worn...

The design was inspired by the game "Bioshock" so I named this transformed waterpistol accordingly.

I only have two waterpistols left for transformation but I already bought some Nerf-guns. They will be better for Liveroleplaying .-)
I used a standart (very cheap) waterpistol, foam matte, acrylic colors, little plastic parts, a glass bead, paper and leather for this gun.

Really cool! I love the calibrator on the side. What's its range and how do you load it?

Oh, thank you .-)
Loading it is not a good idea - it would still be possible to "fire" it, but I am no friend of using water as amunition in a roleplaying game, especially when silk-corsetts and leather-coats are the things people dress in. Therefor this gun is made just for "looking pretty", not for use. I will start to modify some nerf-guns, as soon as I find the time. There is no harm in shooting with soft darts :-)

*blushes furiously* It was a joke! Yes, squirting water at carefully-made costumes would make one remarkably unpopular.

Art deco steampunk is so cool! This is beautiful.

This is steampunk after my own heart. I love all the little detailed items and the great use of color. The design is certainly radical and unique. I really dig the green balls added into the composition. It gives it an old sci-fi look.

Hello!
Good work! :clap: this weapon could be part of the game with my Steampunk Raygun :D I like the idea of leather and compass, Is it a compass?

Hi! :-) Thank you! Yes, we should make a steampunk-weapons-and-other-nice-things-exhibition together one day ;-)
No, it is not a compass, but a not-very-useful kind of scale with the words "optimum" and "critical" - so that you know when you should best throw away the pistol before it explodes ;-)

It's a nice idea of the exhibition, but we are far apart.
"optimum" and "critical" I like!:)

Thank you! I am glad you like it :-) The waterpistol was quite "steampunkeresk" anyway, so it was rather easy and pleasant to add the other components.

I totally want to try this now :aww:
Though I don't roleplay or cosplay so I'd just be stuck with a useless gun haha

Oh, I know .-) I have several weapons now but they are too fragile for "real" use, so I will have to put them in a cabinet and make a more robust one for the actual playing .-)

I wouldn't know I've never tried roleplaying, I have friends that're into it though and I never hear the end of it :giggle:

There are so many different ways of roleplaying now. It can be very, very much fun - and it can be horrible or boring, depending on the people you play with. But it probably would be worth a try :-)

Yeah I know, I just could never do it, I have a phobia of acting lol.

That's why cosplay is something I'd feel better about doing, even though that requires being "into" the role too.
