Bioshock Shortwave Radio Prop by betterDeadthanRED Bioshock Shortwave Radio Prop by betterDeadthanRED
I promised I'd have actual art up soon but I lied because ACen is so close now. Costume cram, fffffuuuuuck ):

This is the shortwave radio I made for my Jack costume 8D

I made this out of an old cassette player I scored for a buck at the local salvation army store. I know it's not perfect -- it's thinner, missing a few trinkets and looks rather un-radio like in general but I still find it pretty cute for something that was made on a small budget with an even smaller time limit.

At first I was going to paint it with a little more gold, but I figured it's shaded that way from the light. I might go over it once more, however, just because. I also have to re-glue the handle with something stronger.

It also has a clip on the back! <:

materials used - cassette player, acrylic paints, wire & craftfoam
more bioshock crap to come

Bet that clip will help alot with the costume and even better you won't have to keep holding onto it as well it looking alot more natural to your costume.

Good luck on whatever you have yet to finish but hats off to say the least to you hard work on the many dials, points of articulation and everything to make the Shockwave Radio look so very real, whoa! o0o

Later,

Oh man. I'm kinda jealous. I have a pipe-wrench, but I haven't been looking super keenly for a shortwave radio. It'll probably be easier to make one than buy something even remotely similar.
