Steampunk Alchemical Injector by Malla13 Steampunk Alchemical Injector by Malla13
Admittedly, this could be better. :|

This was a bit of a rush-job the night before a Halloween party to complete my gf's costume. This is just a basic glue gun that I painted and stuck nifty gears into to complete her steampunk alchemist costume.

The vials are regular test tubes filled with different colors of highlighter dye and water. She can choose which color to screw into the end of the gun. :D Figuring out the mechanics of how that was going to work is probably what gave us the biggest headache. In the end a combination of magnets and gorilla glue held on cap in place on the end of the gun itself, and the vials could then be (carefully!) screwed on and taken off relatively easily. No spills so far!

I wish I'd covered the open part, but I didn't know how to go about doing it without it looking very silly since I was working in a limited time frame. Someday I'll probably go back and tinker with it (if I can pry it out of my gf's hands!) but it's good for now. :)
