Just going to say right now... holy shit my friend. You have a talent for woodcraft. Uhh... I think that they're all going to be ok provided you can answer a couple more questions;
 - What does the scale of that revolver actually look like? Is it oversized, or actual revolver sized?
 - There is no spring in the hidden blade? And it locks "closed", but not extended?

Thank you  :)

If i put a rectangle around the revolver, it will be around 15in x 9in. It's kinda ridiculous to be honest XD

No springs at all in the hidden blade. Here's a pic of the inside of the Hidden Blade and my video of how it locks:

It was a prototype of my hidden blade, but the locking mechanism is still the same: being held in the "closed" position by 2 magnets. The almost finished one looks almost exactly like the one in the vid; the blade is shaped and i made it a little longer, but none of the blade sticks out of the metal housing.

That is some beautiful woodcraft, sir. Are you professional?

Thank you. I'm just an art student =P

Would these props be okay?

Rifle:

I'm going to paint is like this when i finish assembling it: http://i60.photobucket.com/albums/h4/timebmb757/Sniper_IMG.png
It's made from wood and PVC pipe. Would it be okay to carry it around if i painted the tip orange? Or will it look to real?

Butterfly Knife:

Whole thing is made of wood and the tip of the blade is rounded.

Revolver:

It is in the process of being painted to look like this: http://img217.imageshack.us/img217/7091/ambassador.jpg
Do i have to add an orange tip to this? It would look ridiculous if i tried to paint one on.

Hidden Blade:

I'm cosplaying Altair from Assassin's Creed and i'm wonder if it will be legal to carry that around. The blade is made from wood and it has a locking mechanism. The blade won't come out unless i pull on the mechanism. This prop is gravity operated.

I'm working on the Ambassador, Sapper, and Butterfly knife for my Spy cosplay. Also a sniper rifle and a kukri for my friend's Sniper cosplay. Mostly everything is close to the painting stage. But projects and homework from classes are screwing with my prop making time  :-\

I can post links to the WIPs of the props if anyone wants to see em.

Do you know what color your friend is yet?
My friend will be a Red Sniper.

I'm just gonna direct link to my WIPs, since i dont want to overload the servers on here Oo

Incredible Stuff I can Make / Re: DeviantArt

Well, it's just props that i made and some other random stuff. i need to upload some of my other artworks ><

34
so.. anyone here ever make their own waraji? i'm stuck not doing fanime this year, but i'm still making them because i heard they're supposed to be really comfortable.

I made my own, but the ones i made aren't really that comfortable, it might be the way i made them...So yea, i had to put some padding on em so i wont kill my feet when walking around ><

http://aphaestus.deviantart.com/art/Waraji-108948229

Those are the ones I made, i need to update the pic though, because there's only one waraji in that pic 
looks a lot nicer than what i've got. what thickness did you use/did you trace it to your foot?
i made the mistake of using 1/4thick manilla rope, so there are larger gaps in the weave, but the thickness works a bit like padding.

The sisal rope is about 1/8 in thickness. if i remembered correctly, i just got 1/4 sisal and just unraveled it. and i did trace it to my foot, i just used a lot of nails to keep the shape ><
