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 .......
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
Paint the Tubes a Bright Red ( APPLE RED from Michaels Crafts for $ 1.49 ) , on the Cardboard it looks just like the matte red from fireworks paper and on an explosive 3.3 sticker
glued all the tubes in place super glue , and then some RTV silicone for flexibility
added a strip of Trusty Duct Tape on the top and bottom of the tubes .
