There are many ways of making custom accessories to Lego minifigs. I will be talking about 3 different alternatives to create them.

1. Regular Lego minifig accessories-
This is just regular lego pieces put together no modifications at all.

2. Modification of Lego brand and non Lego brand parts-
This is the Modifications of Lego brand and non Lego brand pieces.

3. Also Custom sculpted clay accessories-
This is custom parts sculpted with clay for the minifig.

Step 1: Items Needed.

Step 2: Tips and Tricks before making the accesories.

1.First of all ALWAYS have a picture of what you are making.
It can be a sketch, item, or picture what ever you want.

2.PATIENCE! at first what your modifying or sculpting may not look good but give it time
it will work. : )

3.Revisions! It may of not came out how you wanted it but keep trying until you think you got it right.

Step 3: Regular Minifig accessories.

This is only Lego brand accessories nothing modified.

3 Reasons that you would use this-

1. You would only use Lego if you were making a minifig from a set in the Lego system series'.

2. Only first time people you make custom minifigs would use this but later they will
go in to making more intermediate accessories.

3.This would also be use if you don't want to damage any Lego while making customs.

The problem making custom accessories with Lego is it can be to bulky for the minifig to use.

I made a flame thrower too!!!!!!!

I wish i was as good as you ^_^
Me and a friend are making a stop-motion video of black ops zombies. We are so going to use this
Kinda wish you wrote this back when I had the materials to make Lego stop-motion vids. It would have been cool to make GDI/Nod outfits or weapons for the videos.

Nicely done!

Pretty great instructable. Another, but more expensive option is to have the custom pieces 3d printed from a service like Ponoko and a program like Google Sketchup.

Yeah. I would do that but sometimes it costs way too much!

Shape lock is great. Ive used it before but when it cured it was hard to carve details in with a Xacto Knife.
