the materials you will need are:


- blue wall mart camping pad.
- black spray paint.
- white brush paint.[not shown]
- a toy light saber  (the better quality saber the cooler the gun).
- a hot glue gun and hot glue  (i advise 2 bags of hot glue because you never want to run out of hot glue).
- a cutting utensil  (i used a broken scissor).[not shown]
- a sodding iron
- a picture of the portal gun.[not shown]
- and any other kind of junk u think you can use.  

Step 2: Making the insides

pic (1)  using your picture of the portal gun cut two rectangles from the blue wall mart camping pad. one should go halfway from your finger tips to your elbow and it should be able to wrap around your fist comfortably, and the other proportioned to your first rectangle and to your portal picture (this ts the rectangle after the back shell and before the first shell, it holds the light saber tube).

pic (2)  glue the first rectangle into a long cylinder rather than a fat one.

pic (3)  glue the second rectangle to the first one.

I know that you probably did put alot of work into this, and I'm happy if it suits you and you're proud of it, but I don't think that this is of enough quality to post on a site that already has an instructable that looks spot on to the actual gun.

thank you for letting me down gently, i did infact know that there was an instructbal on this allready but i have little money and i dont have a job, thats why its called what it is called
Dude you did awesome sonicgreg failed to realize that is was on a cheap budget and you couldn't make it on the spot, I think you did great.

Not everyone wants to make a spot on replica. This is the best *cheap* portal gun tutorial. If you want to make a portal gun for a costume party that may last a couple hours, its not worth it to sink a ton of money and time into a crazy realistic replica. This is what I needed, not one of the other tutorials. Thanks mushroomdude!

What did you use to make the claws?
It looks like K'nex painted black.
