This years halloween theme is Avengers.
I will be uploading several instructables detailing how I put the various outfits together.
First, the black widow gun-bracelets.

Most online tutorials advice you to buy a bullet belt and use pieces for the bracelets. A brilliant idea,
accept, i Live in South Africa and we are much more limited in what we can get.
So I had to make mine from scratch.

Hope you enjoy ;)

Step 1: What You Need

Making actual bulets would have taken too long.
So i chose to go with tubes.
Finding the right sized tubes seemed impossible (also the mall was super crowded on the first saturday after pay day and i wanted to get out of there)
My eye fell on these party horns and I realized that the mouth pieces would work brilliantly.

So I used 2 mouth pieces
silver acrylic paint
scissors
paint brush
super glue
rubber bracelets

Step 2: Taking Apart the Party Horns

Pretty straight forward:
I cut off the card-board horns from the mouth pieces. 

Step 3: Painting

i brushed the acrylic on vertically (from end to end) rather than horizontally because I thought streaks in taht direction would look more realistic.

i found it easiest to put them on my finger as I painted them rather then holding them on both ends.

I put them to dry in front of the heater.

Step 4: Glueing

I put a thin strip of supper glue on the bottom of each 'bullet' and then pressed it firmly onto the rubber bracelet.
I found it easiest to rest it around a glass while the bullets dried.

Step 5: Top Elastic

Because these mouth pieces are tapered I had a little more trouble getting them to hold together at the top too.
I used a cheap elastic and wrapped it around each bullet.
Too keep the elastic from slipping off the bullets, i put another coat of paint over the front of the bullets 

Step 6: DONE!

be sure to give it enough drying time.
I am not sure how well these will hold under pressure.
Either way, I don't need them to last long.

ENJOY!
Hey, I'm also from SA! About this prop; How would one hypothetically shoot with it without shooting his or her hand?! <br>It is probably not as close to The Avengers (I haven't seen it), but a cool longer-barreled gatling gun &quot;glove&quot; would look more purposeful, and perhaps some form of ammunition or small ammo box and feeder behind it would make it look a little more like a plausible weapon. <br>For a one time party though I think yours is a better choice.
well. i didnt want it to be functional. Just wanted it to look as much like the comic books as possible
Very nice. Question, in your list of materials you list &quot;2&quot; mouth pieces. <br> <br>Did you mean, 12 ? Or perhaps 11 ? There seems to be more than just 2.
yeah. sorry. it is supposed to be 20
Oh ok, yeah that would make sense. TY
