I thought I’d share with you guys my homemade Pipboy 2500 prop project that has been preoccupying my time besides Fallout 4 and minecraft. I wanted to have something unique to take with me whenever I cosplay a Vault Dweller (FYI, Vault 77. I carry around a puppet )
Anyway, it all started with a cheap hand-sized cigar box and a cannibalized $7 stereo I got from a Salvation Army and ended with a semi-realistic prop which would make Interplay proud. Since my prop differs slightly from the cannon pipboy 2000, I decided to make it “the 2500”. The main differences include the addition of a rad meter and the rotation of the primary input buttons. The reason for the change is that I simply couldn’t find buttons small enough to fit and decided to go with the flow.
While I didn’t chronologue the building process, I did take plenty of photos and placed them in this album: http://imgur.com/a/Ap2Ec . If you have any other thoughts or questions let me know!
