When this mysterious briefcase appeared on my doorstep, I faced two choices: call the authorities or open the case.

Compelled by a strange sense of destiny, I chose to open it:


Raygun!

It was a Primary 3000 model, chock-full of technical features:


Plushy but deadly!

Here is an opposite view of the ray gun, its energy levels reduced after firing test shots at some helpless steel beams:


I used primary-coloured yarn to freeform-crochet this raygun, except for a tactile grip made from grey half-double crochet stitches. Its aiming fin is similar to the nose I made, minus the nostrils.

Since I was the one who built this raygun, I must have sent that mysterious briefcase to myself from the future; a future where I defend lunar ice colonies from fiery space invaders:



ZAP!

That is a good-looking raygun!

I never thought I would actually be able to say that phrase anywhere in real life. Thanks for a dream come true.

Cool project, funny backstory too.  Grin

Did you stuff it with normal stuffing or something a bit more sturdy? It seems to hold its shape very well in the posed pictures.  Grin
