    Hi im working on making a padme battle costume from AOTC and need to get hold of or make a naboo blaster that she carries before she is captured and ends up using a droid blaster.
    Im willing to have a go and make one...but need to know whwre best to find a tutorial on what to use.
    or if there is someone who makes replicas/models of the blaster.

    If there isnt a decent tutorial/replica out there then ill need to find the same with a droid blaster.

    Id prefer to deal with a UK company if im buying a replica.

    If this is in the wrong forum...push me in the right direction and ill ask there!:D

    There are two options for pre made blasters that I'm aware of. One is the episode one super soaker- it has the "chrome" look. I'm sure with a few modifications it will do great.

    There is also the blaster that came with the rubies edition of the white battle outfit- I have that blaster, and although it's great as a toy, it's not very acurate, in the sense of finish and overall look. For pre made, I'd definately go for the super soaker royal pistol... I think that's what it's called.

    Good luck!

    edit: it also might be worth checking out the padme white battle outfit thread on the boards: [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=4704406&replies=408]padme white battle outfit thread[/link]

    You can also take one of the toy blasters, strip the paint off with some fine sandpaper, and repaint it with a metal paint. There's some stuff called Patio Paint that I picked up at Joann's, has a lot of metallic colors, and it looks real good. I was going to try and find a pair of toy Jango blasters to do this on.

    The Super Soaker is slightly oversized and often has quite a few scratches to the chrome because it is sold attached to a card, not packaged in a box. I have seen some repainted Rubies blasters that have looked much better though.
    When I have seen a real one, I estimated the main body to be 1.5" thick. I did take some detailed photos which I can email to anybody who is interested.

    There is a really nice machined aluminum one on ebay right now. I'm almost tempted to get it for my snow bunny padme. Just search "Padme Blaster" and it will come up :)

    heres the link to the auction

    S_S edit: removed link. Please do not post links to eBay auctions unless it is:

    1) Your own auction
    2) You have the express permission from the person auctioning the item off.
    3) Or, you have suspicions about the auction being a scam.

    You're really not supposed to link to an auction unless it is your own or you have obtained permission from the seller. That is why I said to search for it instead.

    I think the Rubies blaster looks more accurate than the one on eBay [face_laugh]
