Thank you for all the supportive comments, which I appreciate so much!
This is awesome! My son, who is three, saw the pics and said it was a rocket. Very cool.
JanelleJ: Your 3-year old son already knows about retro-sci-fi, it sounds like! Maybe he will be the nation's first Mars astronaut
I'm sorry but that is just tooo freaking pure awesome! I would totally walk around town with that ray gun!
reenreen: I'm also tempted to walk around town with the ray gun!. During this photoshoot at a gravel yard, a few trucks stopped to check up on my activities; it's good that the raygun didn't resemble modern firearms!
I always look forward to seeing what you've created next. You have such a great talent, thank you for so much inspiration! I hope I find a pattern book at the store with your name on it, I'd definitely buy it! Good job on another great creation!!
ConnieStieler: Thanks for your encouragement! If I ever write a book in a faraway future, I'll be sure to doodle a raygun on your copy
According to my husband this is "pure unadulterated awesomeness".

that her boyfriend declined to look at the amigurumi fish I made, so I am making some progress if your husband saw the raygun and was so generous with his feedback!
I love the raygun, but now I would like a post on where to acquire that sweet ass space helmet.
VLo: I custom ordered two space helmets from a local props shop for a sci-fi movie
I shot in 2001. One helmet broke during filming, but the second helmet lasted long enough for these raygun photos!
I should dig up their business card and see if they're still in business!
