Inspired by previous fan creations (and wanting to help his girlfriend with her cosplay), multimedia artist Jesse James Allen created this replica Gordon Freeman's weapon of mass flinging.
Allen, who posts on YouTube under the name Savage Land Pictures, explains that he wanted to create something to accompany his girlfriend's Alyx Vance costume as he made his first attempt at building a prop. Describing his gun as more of an "interpretation" rather than straight-up replica, Allen says he constructed it using PVC, foam, old airsoft parts and 200 LED lights powered by a 12-volt battery.
