This is so awesome!
I love that the ray gun has a power cord. Traveller drew on some great source material, didn't it?
I had heard about this photo. Thanks for dragging it up. Doc Smith doesn't look at all like how I pciture old N.W., though.
Me either, but I'm willing to cut Doc some slack, since he was 72 at the time. I hope I look as good!
Awesome, just awesome!
Epic cosplay. :)
Just another fanboy wannabe! ;-)That picture and H. Beam Piper's gunroom photo from the Altoona Trainyard newsletter are priceless.
Now that is my kind of Halloween costume.
This goes along perfectly with a photo that I saw a few months ago (which, alas, I can't find a link for) of a 1970s-era Jack Kirby aggressively brandishing a Captain America shield.I saved the image... if my google-fu continues to come up empty, I'll repost it on my blog tonight.
Could be a Star Frontiers laser too, with the belt pack power supply.I love seeing these kinds of things. I've never done cosplay, but I have friends who do, and I love seeing how far back it goes.Also, I have considered doing the gray Lensman as a cosplay, and see Smith do this makes me really happy.
