This was commissioned for a friends Halloween costume based on the character Ash from the Evil Dead film series and Evil Dead the musical. The body is made out of an Arizona Sweet Tea jug that I cut apart and added various hardware from home depot to make it look like a real chainsaw. It has to look as though it's attached at the wrist so there is a handle in the inside for the user to hold onto. The blade itself is made from 1/4" poplar that I cut on the bandsaw and the chain is made of finish chain that I attached by cutting holes in the blade and tying it on with thin gauge Wire. The exhaust port and pull handle were made on a 3D printer.
A faberge egg made from cardboard and plastic diamonds with gold chain accents that I built for the show Let The Right One In. I colored it with a rit dye technique that I had never used before and it helped to make the outside more closely resemble the reference picture. I also took a small LED system and battery and hid them inside and they were activated by a small switch on the base. The box was made from luan and gold leafed by myself and was held to the base by friction.
