Picture of Fake  TNT Chest Rig  for Halloween
FAKE TNT Chest Rig , OK  FIRST OF ALL  ! This is All in Good Fun , Not Trying to Offend or Disrespect Anyone I Needed to come up with something quick , since i couldnt find a fake AK 47 or find the necessary materials for a Rocket Launcher for My Costume which is a Taliban / Freedom Fighter whatever i dont think Being Politically Correct applies Here , so I scrounged through my stuff and got some Tubes from my sister and had all the wires and stuff switches , L.E.D.S. , paint , Glues ETC ... and went to work .......

Step 1:

Picture of
depending on how Menacing to want to be , you can add the whole box  , but i Opted for SIX  ,  for  ease and comfort ,  does that make sence ? :\  so first i cut the tubes in 7" lengths  and one other tube  from a roll of Suede , with my Trusty Band saw , makes life easy
This reminds me of the good 'ole days when I would play Command & Conquer: Generals. GLA for the win!

Tonight i'm going out walking with nieces and nephew ,(without Rig ) see what reactions i get !! lol should be interesting
I had a wicked costume of that sort a few years ago. I used spray painted wooden dowels from home depot as TNT, and looped thick wire to connect them (using a staple gun into the wooden dowls). The centre piece I used was a mosque shaped cheap alarm clock that lit up and played the call to prayer that I picked up in Oman, and wore that over a white cheap dishdash and a fisihing vest....

around 2 am that night some patriotic dude pepper sprayed me....now i go out as less political characters...

Cool project! I love it! I know how you feel with the heat. A month or two ago it was around 120 degrees in my garage.
